The Stash List

Week 7

by Greg Wellemeyer


The Graduates: Bradley Zimmer (Previous Rank: 2), Jose Berrios (5), Welington Castillo (6), Lucas Duda (14), Amir Garrett (23), Raimel Tapia (24)

Zimmer made his major-league debut Tuesday and struck out three times in three plate appearances. He’s gonna have more games like that. He’ll also chip in some power and speed, and should hold down at least the strong side of a platoon for the duration.

Berrios made his 2017 major-league debut this past week after six dominant Triple-A starts and turned in his best effort as a big leaguer. His 38.3 percent zone rate and 55.2 percent first-pitch strike rate were fifth- and 14th-worst among starters in 2016 with at least 50 innings pitched. It was encouraging, then, to see Berrios pound the zone Saturday, resulting in one just one walk over 7 2/3 innings of work.

Beef Welington and Duda were both activated from the disabled list since appearing last week on the list. Garrett pitched two innings while in Triple A and struck out all six batters he faced. That’s good for a -2.73 FIP. He’s on tap to start today for the Reds. It sure feels like Tapia is going to bounce back and forth between Albuquerque and Denver a bunch this season. He’s in Denver for now, albeit without a place to play. That problem isn’t going to get any better whenever David Dahl is ready to go.

The Dropouts: Matt Duffy (15), Brandon Finnegan (16)

I’m a little nervous about Duffy, who has taken a couple of days off from his rehab assignment because of soreness in his injured heel. Finnegan hit the 60-day disabled list this week and isn’t eligible to return until mid-June. He’s hasn’t pitched from a mound since April 15, though he is throwing.
