Rumor Roundup: What Can Yoon Do for You?

3

Daniel Rathman

Suk-Min Yoon and Carlos Marmol draw interest, and the Rays sort out potential replacements for Jeremy Hellickson.

Rangers interested in Korean free agent Suk-Min Yoon
Korean free agent Suk-Min Yoon, a 27-year-old right-hander who pitched for the Kia Tigers last year, has been a forgotten man this offseason, but he could provide a boost to the back of a team’s rotation or bullpen. Clubs unwilling to shell out big bucks for Ubaldo Jimenez or Ervin Santana might view him as a desirable option as the winter winds down.

Notes on prospects playing abroad, in rhyme form!

Monday night saw just one game on the Caribbean docket,
So this time around I thought I’d rhyme it and rock it.

Last night’s only game was in the Dominican
Where the Tigres del Licey held on for a win.

The Angels didn't trade Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol on Friday night. But if they had, this would have been our reaction.

On Friday night, it was reported by several sources that the Angels and Cubs had agreed to swap starter Dan Haren—whose $15.5 option for 2013 was due to be picked up or declined by 12 AM ET—for reliever Carlos Marmol. Ultimately, the Cubs pulled the offer off the table, killing the deal, and the Angels declined Haren’s option, making him a free agent. But before that happened, Colin Wyers wrote up a reaction to the rumored transaction. This is what we would have said had the trade gone through.

Carlos Marmol returns to the closer role, what to make of Trevor Plouffe being the hottest hitter in baseball, the underappreciated Mitch Moreland and Jake Arrieta, and more.

Hisashi Iwakuma did something weird Wednesday night, but that's not the weirdest part of this.

On Wednesday, Hisashi Iwakuma got his first save in the majors. It doesn't really call for an analysis of his post-save celebration, because it was one of those bastard saves where the pitcher protects a (in this case) 12-run lead by pitching at least the final three innings. Iwakuma's win probability added: 0.02, as he allowed three runs.

Value Picks: Relievers for 5/23/12

Dan Mennella

Carlos Marmol could be on the rebound and Tyler Clippard may finally see some saves in this week's VP

The closer carousel has stabilized a bit over the past week relative to its frenzied early-season pace, so we’ll have to dig a little bit deeper to find some new relievers of interest…

Are teams asking the right questions about pitcher injury prevention, or are they just guessing along with the rest of us?

Thanks to Jerome Holtzman, inventor of the save, and Bruce Sutter, the first fireman used like a 21st-century closer, Chicago is quite literally the birthplace of the modern reliever. So it seems almost tiresome that in the Windy City, baseball news over the last week has been dominated by the vagaries of relief pitching.

Before last Friday's game against the Dodgers, Carlos Marmol sat hunched over in the folding chair in front of his locker, all by himself. No one was talking to the normally happy-go-lucky reliever, or even sitting nearby. We soon learned that Marmol was processing some bad news.

BP's new expert on pitcher mechanics debuts with a primer on the most important components of the pitching motion.

My name is Doug, and I am a baseball junkie.

It all started with an eight-year old kid and an innocent pack of Topps baseball cards. There must have been something laced into that stale piece of gum, because my formative years are nothing but a haze of cardboard stats, makeshift whiffleball fields, Mark McGwire moon shots, and heated Saberhagen-Valenzuela duels in RBI Baseball. By college I was on to the hard stuff, with fantasy baseball teams stretching as far as the eye could see, buoyed by the mass consumption of designer statistics like VORP, PAP, and EQA.

Brian Wilson experiences more elbow soreness, Carlos Marmol's MRI comes back clean, Zach Britton gets good news about his shoulder, and Orlando Hudson's groin continues to keep him off the field.

Brian Wilson, San Francisco Giants (Right elbow soreness)
After finally appearing to be over his 2011 elbow problems, Wilson developed soreness in his right elbow, which has to have everyone concerned. He missed over a month last season due to a strain of the flexor muscle mass on the inside aspect of his elbow. In addition to contributing to force reproduction levels necessary to throw the ball in the upper 90s, the flexor mass is an important stabilizer to the ligament, made famous by Tommy John (with an assist from Dr. Frank Jobe).

Velocity is one of the factors that have been associated with injuries to this ligament in throwers. Whenever a pitcher experiences multiple bouts of elbow pain within a year’s time, there has to be concern about some underlying cause, whether it is ligament, cartilage, or tendon damage. Wilson was able to throw in a minor-league game on Thursday and kept his velocity in the upper 90s. He’s not out of the woods yet, but for now, he’s day to day.

A few pitchers may be on the move this winter, either to a different team or to a different role.
