Chris Mosch

A 51-minute first inning in Detroit, a walk-off in a rivalry game out west, and a brilliant defensive play notable even by Juan Lagares standards.

Chris Archer is strong, Giancarlo is strong, the Giants are not strong.

The Thursday Takeaway
The Rays rotation took a hit during the spring, with Alex Cobb and Drew Smyly forced to the disabled list with an elbow and shoulder injury, respectively. If and when those two are back at full strength, Tampa Bay’s has the potential to be one of the best young rotations in the American League. One of the reasons to be optimistic is Chris Archer, who baffled the Blue Jays on Thursday with a mid-to-high-90s fastball and bevvy of nasty sliders.

What You Need to Know: A Shift in Colorado

7

Chris Mosch

The Rockies get creative, the Dodgers get the first look at Kimbrel in a Padres uniform, and C.J. Wilson erases some memories.

The Tuesday Takeaway
By now it’s clear that defensive shifts have exploded in volume over the past few seasons. The total number of shifts in 2014 was nearly six times that in 2011, with teams like the Astros, Yankees, Pirates and Rays racing to the forefront of the sport’s latest trend. One laggard in the new shift-crazed world has been the Rockies, who finished dead last in shifts last season with 114, according to the latest Bill James Handbook. However, the Rockies might not be sitting in the shift cellar for much longer.

Wherever Hector Olivera ends up this week, it'll probably be in California. Meanwhile, John Holdzkom might be on a path to Triple-A.

Caminero could force Holdzkom to the minors
John Holdzkom’s path from failing to make the roster of an indy ball team to becoming a valuable piece of the Pirates bullpen down the stretch all in one year was an improbable one for the lanky New Zealand native. However, it’s becoming increasingly likely that we'll have to wait some time before seeing the story continue in Pittsburgh, and that has little to do with any wrongdoing on his part.
