George Bissell and Alex Chamberlain of Baseball Prospectus discuss the most polarizing starting pitchers in fantasy baseball.

Read the full article...

Adrian Gonzalez is upset with the WBC, Scott Boras is upset with the Blue Jays, and Yasmany Tomas is injured.

Boras unhappy with Blue Jays' handling of Sanchez

Fortunately for Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez, he appears to be in good shape and should be healthy for the start of season. However, he won’t be receiving a significant pay raise. While nobody’s going to argue that he should’ve been getting paid on the same level as Mookie Betts and Kris Bryant, it’d be fair to say that he could be in line for a raise in pay after he had an eye-opening first full season for the Blue Jays that included winning the ERA title.

Flu-Like Symptoms: One Not-So-Fine Day: Reliever Edition

Rob Mains

Do really terrible appearances for relievers cloud their long-term outlooks?

Earlier this month, I wrote an article that was based on a post that Mitchel Lichtman (aka MGL), sabermetrician and co-author of The Book, wrote on his blog, MGL on Baseball. MGL explored the question—I’m quoting from his title here—“What does it mean when a pitcher has a few really bad starts that mess with his ERA?”

If you already read my initial post, or MGL’s, you can skip to the next paragraph. If not, MGL’s conclusion was, briefly, that if a starting pitcher has two or three really terrible starts—really terrible defined here as eight or more runs allowed in five or fewer innings—that contribute to a season-long runs against average (RA9) of 5.00 or higher, we’re likely to overshoot our projection of the pitcher’s ERA for the subsequent season by 0.2 or 0.3.

David Price, Ian Desmond, and Anthony DeSclafani are out for Opening Day and beyond.

Price likely to start season on disabled list

A day after David Price said that he was optimistic after getting a second opinion on his elbow and had heard what he “wanted to hear,” manager John Farrell announced that the Red Sox left-hander would begin the season on the disabled list. Price hasn’t pitched since feeling discomfort two weeks ago and will not need surgery, leaving him with a fairly open timetable for his return.

The Nationals prepare to release Derek Norris, while Julio Urias and Trevor Rosenthal appear on the verge of losing their starting roles.

Rays, Royals could be interested in Norris

The Nationals placed veteran catcher Derek Norris on waivers Saturday and are expected to release him sometime this week. If they do so before March 15, they’ll only be on the hook for his termination pay, which comes in around $700,000 compared to the $4.2 million salary he would have received in 2017. Norris lost his starting role after the team picked up Matt Wieters on a one-year, $10.5 million contract in February. They reportedly made a good faith effort to trade him, but his price tag and abysmal offensive production for the Padres in 2016 made it a tough sell.
