Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 3-29-2013

Washington Times, March 29, 1913:

Ty Cobb and Eppa Rixey are about the only holdouts still holding out and nobody knows exactly what Rixey’s kick is. Mr. Rixey is in daily communication with the emperor of Japan and the khedive of Egypt in regard to his grievances, but he neglects to address a part of his correspondence to [Phillies owner] Will H. Locke or [Phillies manager] C.S. Dooin.

He was busy in college, man. College!

Royals have pretty much set their roster. Only battle left is backup catcher - George Kottaras vs. Brett Hayes. Today is the day they must decide to keep Kottaras or cut him to get out of 3/4 of his salary. I would guess Kottaras has the inside track unless they're trying to trade him.

Terrible. Sigh.
   4. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: March 29, 2013 at 10:15 AM (#4399037)
Darin Ruf has been sent down - le sigh. Betancourt is gone from Phillies camp. Say what you will about the Phillies, at least they picked Kevin Frandsen over him. Albeit it seems their main concern was their pinch-hitting stats.

Freddy Galvis and Frandsen are the backup infielders. Michael Young is going to start at third, until I take over after Manuel is fired, and I start platooning him with Howard so Frandsen can play every day.

Outfielders include Domonic Brown, Ben Revere, John Mayberry Jr, and Laynce Nix. Also Demon Young who is currently on the DL. At least Brown has been hitting great in spring training.

The bench may feature 3 Venezuelans in Galvis, Humberto Quintero (until Carlos Ruiz comes back), and Rule 5 pick Ender Inciarte, a speedy LH outfielder who played for the Visalia Oaks last year. Alternately Pete Orr may still get the last backup spot instead of Inciarte, and Steven Lerud may be the second catcher instead of Quintero. This would give us two catchers who were recently waived by the Pirates and are a combined 60 years old with a combined 64 games of MLB experience. But the other one is the man, the myth, the legend, Erik Kratz.

They are taking a while to make these decisions.

The rotation is Hamels, Halladay until he goes on the DL for 18 months, Cliff Lee, Byle Bendrick, John Lannan who just gave up 12 runs in his last spring training start, and the pitching equivalent of Darin Ruf, Tyler Cloyd.

As for the bullpen I can't follow what's going on except that Aaron Cook is on the team and Jeremy Horst looks terrible.

After the first couple of weeks they'll go back to a 12-man staff and most likely activate Jason Giambi from the DL.

How many Rule 5 picks are going to make opening day rosters? Fields (HOU) and Pressly (MIN) are in. I think Rondon (CHC) is too. TJ McFarland will probably make the Orioles for 5 days until they need to activate Tillman. Alfredo Silverio and Cesar Cabral (2011 pick) are injured. Angel Sanchez will make the White Sox, but is the least exciting Rule 5 choice ever.

ender inciarte is a pretty solid lock to make the phillies out of spring training.

The Phillies released Aaron Cook on Tuesday. He signed a minor league contract with the Rockies, and will be in the rotation at AAA.

I have to say, I don't hate the Rockies' rotation as much as a lot of people do. It's Jhoulys Chacin-Jon Garland-Jeff Francis-Juan Nicasio-Jorge de la Rosa. While there are question marks about all of them, and none of them are going to compete for the Cy Young, they all have some record of success and could all easily put up 90-95 ERA+. And I like that they have reasonable backup options, with Drew Pomeranz and Christian Friedrich (plus Cook) at AAA. At the very least, they should be able to avoid the outright disasters like Moyer and Guthrie from last year.

I am also excited about the prospects of a big year for Dexter Fowler. He was quietly very good last year, hitting .300/.389/.474, he's 27 this year, and he's had a blazing hot spring, hitting over .400 with power.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis missed most of spring training. Santana's arm blew up. Carson is really the only guy who made the team in camp.
   12. Sweatpants Posted: March 29, 2013 at 10:41 AM (#4399069)
The Braves had the following position battles in spring training:

Fifth starter: It was Julio Teheran's job to lose coming in to spring training, and he had an ERA under 2 and over a strikeout per inning.
Starting 3B: Juan Francisco and Chris Johnson both played well, so they're in a platoon for now. Johnson's also the backup 1B.
LHB bench OF: Fan favorite Jordan Schafer won pretty much by default. He hit as well as he has over the past few years, but he's out of options and Jose Constanza spent most of the spring stuck in the Dominican.
Backup IF: Ramiro Pena won mostly because they want Tyler Pastornicky to play every day somewhere. Or maybe they were just being nice when they said that. Pena's out of options, too.
Last man out of the pen: Cancelled when Jonny Venters went down.

So really all that was accomplished in spring was finding out that Venters had a bum elbow.

Marlon? I can't think of who else this could be. Is he really still in the league? Starting no less?

That Mets team looks absolutely terrible. Like as bad as the pre-Dayton Royals bad. I'm really sorry man.

Is the Mets team that much worse than the Phillies?

Justified star, unless he's injured: Utley / Wright

Ace reliever: Papelbon / Parnell

Good shortstop: Tejada / Rollins

Ace starter who may never pitch again: Halladay / Santana

Last year Duda, Davis, Murphy, and Baxter all hit better than Mayberry, Dom Brown, Nix, Revere, and of course Howard. Cowgill and Byrd don't seem very good, but neither do Pete Orr and Kevin Frandsen, despite my love for the latter.

The Phillies' advantage at catcher and at the top of the rotation may be outweighed by other things.

Lee and Hamels are probably worth 10-12 wins. I don't see anywhere the Mets make that up.

Rany Jazayerli was predicting that the Royals would pick the inferior backup catcher, Hayes would make the team, and Kottaras would end up on the Yankees. And he is at least right that Kottaras would be an excellent fit for the Yanks. I guess it could still happen.

Fish DFA four dudes, some interesting: Gorkys Hernandez (good glove CF, bat never came around), Scott Maine (fungible, though not bad, lefty reliever), Evan Reed (big, hard throwin' dude), and Zach Cox. Now, I've never been a fan of his, but Cox is only a year removed from being on BA's top 100 prospect list. Tweener between third and first with potential as a line drive bat (who, otoh, hasn't really hit as a pro and, again, has a troubling glove).
   41. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: March 31, 2013 at 10:36 AM (#4400090)
So is Cox on waivers? My guess is he starts at 3B for Houston tonight.

Also interesting for the Marlins - Jose Fernandez, one of the top prospects in baseball, but has never pitched above A ball, has made the rotation due to injuries to Nate Eovaldi and Henderson Alvarez.

The Marlins roster is pretty interesting. Names of vets you had wondered what happened to (Kevin Slowey! John Maine! Casey Kotchman!) and guys I've never heard of (Donovan Solano? Alex Sanabia? AJ Ramos?) Maybe Loria is planning on getting attendance so low he can move them to Cleveland.

One more Miami bit: they're platooning Ruggiano and Coghlan in center. Yes, last year was likely a fluke but Ruggiano had an OPS above .900 in over 300 PA last year - he probably should start with a bigger role than the short side of a platoon.

Reliever Rice makes Mets after 14 seasons in minors
By MIKE PUMA
Last Updated: 3:57 AM, March 31, 2013

SARASOTA, Fla. — The bus didn’t leave without Scott Rice this time.

A year ago, the lefty reliever was on the verge of finally getting a major league call up — after 13 seasons in the minors — when the Dodgers informed him on the last day of spring training he wouldn’t be joining them.

“Everyone was loading on the bus to go to San Diego and I was left standing with my bags, so I know the feeling,” Rice said yesterday, a day after the Mets informed him he would be traveling north as part of the team’s Opening Day roster.

It’s an odyssey for Rice that has included six different organizations, in addition to stints playing for the independent Long Island Ducks and Newark Bears. The former first-round draft pick by the Orioles in 1999 was considered a long shot to crack the Mets’ roster when camp began, but supplanted Robert Carson for the bullpen’s second lefty role in the final days of spring training.The 31-year-old Rice spent last season with the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque, where he went 2-3 with a 4.40 ERA in 54 appearances, pitching in a league known for offensive explosions.If there was an overriding factor in the choice of Rice over Carson it was the former’s ability to induce ground balls. Carson’s fate may have been sealed last week when he surrendered consecutive homers to Jason Heyward and Justin Upton in a relief appearance against the Braves.

But Rice remained steady, posting a 2.92 ERA in 11 Grapefruit League appearances with 11 strikeouts and three walks in 12 1/3 innings.“

He showed me the resilience I wanted to see, he showed me that he kept the ball in the ballpark, kept the ball on the ground,” pitching coach Dan Warthen said. “He walked a few guys, but he was able to get a ground ball afterwards. He’s a guy that deserves to be here right now.”

Josh Edgin, who will join Rice as the bullpen’s other lefty to begin the season, was considered a near lock for the job from the start of camp. Rice, Carson, Pedro Feliciano and Aaron Laffey were the other lefties competing for one spot.Carson was visibly shaken on Friday after receiving the news he would be starting the season in Triple-A Las Vegas, but Rice was among those who tried to comfort him.
