On the 18th episode of the DFA podcast, it's time to talk about all those medium-sized deals that are part and parcel of deadline season. The Padres and Royals swap intriguing pitchers, Jaime Garcia (finally) heads to Minnesota, and the Red Sox add two third basemen: one from within and one from without.

It's Baseball Prospectus's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets) are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

Injuries to Andre Ethier and Carson Smith are the latest to mess with their clubs' depth.

With Andre Ethier out, Dodgers turn to outfield depth
Subscribing to the conventional wisdom that Spring Training is meaningful only in its injuries, the Dodgers are continuing with a frustratingly meaningful March. Yesterday in this space, we reviewed the deteriorating state of the team’s rotation; today, Andre Ethier reminds us not to take position player health for granted, either. The Dodgers announced Tuesday that the left fielder is expected to be out for 10 to 14 weeks with a fractured tibia.

Initial x-rays did not show any damage after Ethier fouled a ball off his leg on Friday, but results from follow-up exams were not so encouraging. Though it certainly isn’t ideal for the Dodgers to have the 33-year old sidelined until June, the team’s outfield depth makes it a little more palatable. It was already expected that the left-handed Ethier would share time with right-handed Scott van Slyke, and in his absence, left field will probably be filled by a platoon team of van Slyke and Carl Crawford. It’s something of an outside shot at redemption for Crawford, who wasn’t expected to receive much playing time after three seasons in LA that have been disappointing and injury-plagued (and, of course, expensive)—though projections suggest only continued decline for the erstwhile star.

Free Agent Watch: Week Five


Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre

If these players are on your league's waiver wire, they might be worth a look, depending on the format in which you play.

Welcome back to our weekly walk through some of the players who may want to keep an extra eye on in your leagues. Mike and I will be tackling this topic on Thursdays again and focusing on a singular hitter and pitcher in four of the more popular formats: shallow mixed, deep mixed, NL-only and AL-only. These are certainly not the only players who are worth pickups, but it gives us a nice opportunity to write about players we have close tabs on in our leagues.
