Brock Stewart to endure another option year with Dodgers

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the 2019 season will constitute a fourth option year for Dodgers pitcher Brock Stewart. Teams typically have three option years with their players, meaning they can yo-yo the players between the minors and majors an unlimited amount of times. Because Stewart hasn’t logged five full seasons in professional baseball — he appeared in only 17 games in his rookie season in the minors — the Dodgers have a fourth option year as prescribed in the collective bargaining agreement.

Does this mean he’s been subjected to the dreaded Option J?

Where Giants players who are out of options stand in spring training

SAN FRANCISCO—The Giants had the day off Tuesday, which gave the staff a chance to step back and evaluate what’s been seen so far. Roster decisions won’t purely be made based on performance, though.

As always this time of year, it’s important to pay attention to the options game. The players certainly know all about it, and they talk about it often. Young players who are on the bubble and have minor league options remaining know they’re likely headed for Sacramento no matter what they do.

Those who have no options left know that they could be in for anything over the next three weeks.

A consideration of players on the verge of who-knows-what.
