Pebble Hunting: It's Been One Week

7

Sam Miller

A division can't be won or lost in the first week, but these teams did have relatively hefty playoff-odds swings already.

Last year, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg, PA issued a correction for a piece it had written on the Gettysburg Address, 150 years earlier. “We pass over the silly remarks of the President,” they had written in 1863. “For the credit of the nation we are willing that the veil of oblivion shall be dropped over them and that they shall be no more repeated or thought of." It took some time, yes, but Patriot-News staff eventually did check themselves before they wrecked themselves.

Painting the Black: The Mystery Men of Opening Day

0

R.J. Anderson

Not one of Tyler Collins' or Roenis Ellis' PECOTA comparables was a major leaguer. But Collins, Ellis, and the rest of these unknowns are on MLB rosters today.

Opening Day is here, and that means it's time to introduce the unknowns who made rosters. This year's edition includes some new quirks. In addition to an expanded roster, each capsule now includes the player's major league service time (MLS) and the percentage of their PECOTA comparables who played in the bigs during the comparable season (MLB%), as a crude way to determine the unexpectedness of their Opening Day assignment.

Rumor Roundup: A New Challenger

2

Daniel Rathman

Just when it looked like Ervin Santana would sign with Baltimore or Toronto, a new team's entrance song starts playing.

Tigers’ left-field plans up in the air after Andy Dirks injury
When the Tigers traded Prince Fielder to the Rangers for Ian Kinsler earlier this offseason, they paved the way for Miguel Cabrera to slide across the diamond to first base and for top prospect Nick Castellanos to supplant him at the hot corner. Without the swap, Castellanos might have spent his first full big-league season as a left fielder.

Notes from the Field: Spring Notes

12

Jason Parks and BP Prospect Staff

Sean Manaea, Robert Stephenson, Franchy Cordero and many more.

Royals/Reds/Padres (Jason Parks)

Sean Manaea (Royals): Multiple looks so far in camp; live batting practice session/two innings of live game action. Big, strong body; carries the size well; upright posture with straight/high leg lift; arm is slightly lower than standard 3/4 slot; works well; clean action and quick arm; creates good angle despite lower slot; stays over the ball; fastball has ghost qualities at any velocity; hard to square up/track; in game action, worked 93-94 in first inning; spotted east/west; best pitch was lefty-lefty with 93 on the outside black for called strike; second inning was mostly 92; some arm-side run; secondary stuff showed in live batting practice session; fastball was 89-90 (early in camp), slider was slurvy but effective; hard to track and square; changeup flashed high-end quality; could see a plus-plus future; fastball arm speed with heavy vertical life; limited look but no doubt an effective offering.

Daniel Rathman

News from spring training on Mike Carp, the Dodgers' second-base battle, and Atlanta's Tommy La Stella.

Brewers, Pirates scouting Red Sox—specifically Mike Carp
Boston Globe national baseball writer Nick Cafardo heard over the weekend that the Brewers and Pirates have sent scouts to Fort Myers, Florida, to watch the Red Sox in Grapefruit League action. According to Cafardo, both clubs may be eyeing Mike Carp.

Fantasy Team Preview: Atlanta Braves

21

Paul Sporer

Top-shelf bats, quality rotation arms, and the game's best closer make the Braves an excellent team from which to mine fantasy assets.

Last year’s NL East champion brings plenty of fantasy value to the table again in 2014, as the Braves try to defend their title against a surging Nats team. They have star-level hitting sure to be scooped up in the early rounds, three like-valued starting pitchers who will be near the top of many fantasy rotations, and the top closer in the game by any ranking.

Projected Lineup
