Phillies considering moving Nick Pivetta to bullpen

Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports that Phillies officials had discussions about potentially moving Nick Pivetta to the bullpen. If the circumstances were right, manager Gabe Kapler said, “It’s something we’ll consider.”

On the bright side, if the last couple of years’ worth of free-agency means anything, Pivetta will undoubtedly make more money as a reliever relative to the value he’s likely to produce than he has a chance to as a starter….

The Separate Paths of Craig Kimbrel and the Red Sox | FanGraphs Baseball

Not even a mention of Darwinzon Hernandez? That’s a pretty big oversight. If he doesn’t break camp with the team, it won’t be too long before he’s making a real impact on their bullpen. Lakins and Shawaryn I expect will provide some depth as well.

How Brad Brach’s addition changes the shape of the Cubs’ bullpen

It’s incredible to see the wide-reaching impact one move can make.

All the people crying for the Cubs to “JuSt MaKe A mOvE aLrEaDy!” were granted their wish with the deal for Brad Brach on Thursday afternoon.

Not only was it an actual move to shake the ice off the frozen offseason (especially from the Cubs’ perspective), but it also helped solidify the team’s greatest current weakness.

For the record, he turned the bullpen into an octagon.
