Rumor Roundup: Examining the Market

4

Daniel Rathman

Updates on likely landing spots for Stephen Drew, Fernando Rodney, Bronson Arroyo, and Jose Lobaton.

Three teams have “strong interest” in Fernando Rodney
All but one of the pitchers who spent the 2013 season as their teams’ closers know where they will be playing this year. The exception is Fernando Rodney, who appears certain to move on from the Rays—now that they’ve added Grant Balfour and Heath Bell—but does not yet know where free agency will take him.

The hard-throwing right-hander, who turns 37 on March 18, has secured only one multi-year deal to this point in his career: a two-year, $11 million contract that came back to bite the Angels before he moved on to Tampa Bay. Rodney earned $2 million in 2012 on a one-year pact with the Rays, who exercised a club option to retain him for $2.5 million last year.

Rumor Roundup: Scoping Out the Less Expensive Starters

2

Daniel Rathman

The latest on the cheaper free agent starters still out there.

Diamondbacks could enter the slow-developing Bronson Arroyo market
After failing to secure a frontline starter to lead their 2014 rotation, the Diamondbacks might be setting their sights a little lower: According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, general manager Kevin Towers is now eyeing Bronson Arroyo.

Rumor Roundup: Orioles Adding Arms?

1

Daniel Rathman

The Orioles hope to sign two pitchers, and the Diamondbacks might be about to get richer.

The Orioles’ plan: two arms in two weeks
Orioles pitchers and catchers are required to report to the team’s spring training facility in Sarasota, Florida, by February 13. According to Andrew Rickli of SportsReel Boston, if Dan Duquette has his way, that group will include two newcomers by the time everyone heads south.

Fantasy Team Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

14

Paul Sporer

The Snakes feature a new closer and a power-hitting first baseman with a case to be the no. 3 pick in drafts this spring.

The Diamondbacks’ moves the last two years have been a bit peculiar and yet seemingly despite their best efforts, they still have a rather formidable team. They have established star talent, quality veteran talent, and emerging young talent. It’s far from a flawless team, but it has the makings of a contender. Additionally—and more importantly—it is ripe with fantasy goodness.

One Move: National League West

12

Craig Goldstein

Craig looks at how the Dodgers can help their skipper and how the other teams in their division can try to dethrone them.

My colleague Ben Carsley introduced this series to you yesterday, with the moves he’d make for the AL East franchises, so today I give you what I’d do if given the chance to make one move for each NL West club. It’s a thought exercise, and isn’t limited to on-field transactions. It can be signing a player, making a trade (that’s feasible, we hope), or something more over-arching in regards to a club’s organizational tendencies.

We’re both well aware that we’ll likely get pilloried in the comments. In fact you probably hammered Ben pretty hard yesterday, but you wouldn’t play me like that would you? No matter, let us know what you think of our ideas in the comments or what ideas you have yourself, and remember, it’s supposed to be reasonable but in the end this was all about having some fun.

The Call-Up: Chris Owings

0

Mark Anderson and Mike Gianella

The Diamondbacks' young shortstop has an intriguing speed/power combo, but may not be in line for playing time yet.

The Situation: Ranked as the Diamondbacks no. 3 prospect heading into the season, Owings will make his debut on the heels of a season in which he was named both the Pacific Coast League MVP and Rookie of the Year.

Background: Signed for $950,000 as a supplemental first-rounder in 2009, Owings made his professional debut as a 17-year old in the short-season Pioneer League. After hitting .306 in 24 games during his debut, Owings followed that up with a .298/.323/.447 showing in full-season ball in 2010. Heading to the high-octane environment of the California League in 2011, Owings was expected to post impressive numbers but struggled as he hit just .246 with 15 walks and 130 strikeouts in 121 games. He returned to the California League in 2012 and torched the circuit the second time through, posting a .324/.362/.544 line before being promoted to Double-A. While he hit just .263 with six home runs in 69 games at Double-A last season, Owings was promoted to Triple-A to start the 2013 campaign. In his first taste of the minor leagues’ highest level he hit .330 with 31 doubles and 12 home runs for Reno.
