On the avoidable mistake the Tigers made.

Hi friends! What would you say if I told you that the Justin Verlander extension was just as big a mistake as the Ryan Howard extension? Would you call me an idiot and never listen to me again? Good, because I would never say that. Never. However, the Tigers did make one mistake that was similar to Ruben Amaro Jr.'s, and it looks increasingly likely that they'll pay for it. At Fox Sports, I went over Verlander's early-season struggles, why they're different than last year's, and why the two years a club has to wait and see might be its most valuable, if often overlooked, asset. Block quote time!

All of our pre-draft coverage, featuring hundreds of scouting reports, as well as mock drafts, player updates, case studies, the video library and more.

Below you will find links to our amateur content from this spring, including notes and video of the top prospects in this year’s draft class. It was a meaty spring on the draft content side, and we expect it to grow even more next year. Thanks for following us throughout the last four months, and we hope you’ll enjoy the 2014 draft content still to come!

Continually updated video library of 2014 First-Year Player Draft prospects.

Welcome to the 2014 MLB Draft Video Library -- this space will feature periodic uploads of videos of 2014 MLB draft prospects from now through June. It will be updated every single day and the new videos for a particular week will be featured at the top of this page with the archived videos directly below. Chances are if you are looking for a draft prospect you will find some video of him on this page between now and June.

A look at which teams have had the most hits and misses in recent drafts.

What you'd probably like to know during amateur draft week is which teams will get the most production out of the 2014 draft. Unfortunately, that's a question that we won't be able to answer for a while. So as a substitute, would you accept an examination of which teams have drafted the most (and best) major leaguers in recent years? As part of BP's partnership with Fox Sports, I attempted to answer that question (and others) in an article up today at the Fox Sports MLB page. Here's a teaser:

For the final time: History made!

Well this will be the end for this feature. So, in our last week of new pitching lines, let's see what we've learned. Below are the 50 most recent pitching lines that starters have produced, all of Wednesday's and Thursday's starts. Think you can guess which ones are new? I'm going to guess. Go ahead and guess! I have no idea how many are going to be new, but based on our typical averages, five to seven is a good estimate.

The Angels shortstop steals second when nobody is looking.

Erick Aybar's clever baserunning has earned e-ink before, but what he did in last night's game against the Mariners marks a new personal best.

Why are position players increasingly cast as mop-up men?

When Andrew Koo wrote about the rate of position player appearances last August, he noted that while such appearances had hit an all-time high in 2013, he was “hesitant to declare” a pattern based on a single season. Nine months later, though, the pattern is looking pretty clear. Here’s how this season’s total so far compares to the totals for each season since 1977 (before which it becomes tougher to untangle the pitcher-hitter hybrids).
