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….

MLB Preview 2019: Who will be this year’s breakout stars?

A new Major League Baseball season brings with it a new chance for success — whether we’re talking about a team or a player. In the case of some players, it’s also the chance for this to become *their* year.

Every year brings breakout candidates, the people who are going to end 2019 in a much better place than they started it, the players who are going to propel their teams to new heights.

It’s a preseason tradition to pick breakout candidates, and we’re nothing if not consistent. So here are some breakout stars of 2019, as predicted by Yahoo Sports MLB’s team of baseball opinion-havers

So, who among these folk will break out this season, who will later, and who never will?
