In this week's podcast, the gang breaks down some late-round options and welcomes Bret Sayre to discuss his first Scoresheet draft.

Sure, roto enthusiasts have their big-ticket sleepers such as Yordano Ventura or Nolan Arenado, but it’s the Scoresheet player who has the thrill of drafting 20 rounds after those guys are off the board. Last week, the Outcomes participated in the annual BL DwMurphy draft, one of Scoresheet’s flagship leagues. With a soft keeper protection system and rules discouraging protecting minor leaguers, it’s functionally a 24-team one-year league, which means that there are more picks in the draft than there are players in the major leagues. If you’re in a similar situation, who should you look out for at the bottom of the scraped barrel?

Five to Watch: Injured NL Starting Pitchers

0

Craig Goldstein

These five hurlers missed most of the 2013 campaign with arm ailments, but they could be fantasy bargains next year.

If it wasn’t made clear in my first article on starting pitchers who were due for a bounce back, my view on starting pitching is that depth is everywhere. I mean, hell, I tried to make a case for Edinson Volquez as a viable option heading into next season (author’s note: I’m a dolt). Perhaps Volquez was the wrong option to hang my case on, but I selected him in an effort to prove a point. That point you ask?

The point is that starting pitching depth is just about everywhere. Don’t believe me? Check out this list of five NL starting pitchers who either haven’t pitched in 2013, or have only just returned recently. They range from “I’ve been waiting on him for a couple years” to “I legitimately forgot he existed even though he’s on my favorite team*.”

Transaction Analysis: A 2012 Draftee In the Show

Paco Rodriguez debuts in Los Angeles, the Padres extend Denorfia, Billingsley will get some time off and Yusmeiro Petit returns.

The Royals' rotation is off to a stellar start, and tonight's match-ups will feature many aces.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Pop quiz: Name the five current members of the Royals starting rotation.

Those five pitchers have combined to throw 29 innings in the team’s first turn through the rotation and have allowed just five runs on 18 hits, 13 walks, 22 strikeouts, and no home runs. That adds up to a stellar 3.03 FIP—and it’s the main reason why manager Ned Yost’s team is off to a 3-2 start, considering that his offense has only produced 16 runs to date.

Preseason Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 3/8/12

Pineda, Ubaldo, Billingsley, and Santana make this week's VP thanks to spring training goings ons

Welcome to spring training, that wonderful time of the year when baseball fans in a far-too-connected world put a ridiculous amount of importance in the results of miniscule sample sizes against wildly varying levels of competition.

Speaking of which, let’s dive right into…

In the wake of the Matt Moore extension, revisit Nate's discussion of the perils of counting on pitching prospects and his remarks on the most promising southpaws.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Last week, the Rays signed young lefty Matt Moore to an extension that should prove to be team-friendly if he stays healthy, but as Nate discussed in an article which originally ran as a "Lies, Damned Lies" column on April 12, 2007, it's never safe to assume that a young pitcher's arm will remain intact.

Los Angeles is going nowhere this year, but the team has several players that could help form the core of the next great Dodger team.

The Dodgers have a problem. Hello, understatement. This is a team that, at the All-Star break, finds itself in fourth place (was last place before a weekend sweep at home against the equally hapless Padres) in the NL West, 11 games out of first. The Dodgers own the seventh-worst record in baseball and are ill-poised to make a second-half run.

Under The Knife: Beltran's Clock Ready to Tick

11

Will Carroll

The Mets center fielder, out all season while recovering from microfracture knee surgery, begins a rehab assignment Thursday, along with other injury news from around the majors.

Carlos Beltran (arthritic knee, ERD 7/15)
In what is sure to be a continuing series, the Beltran watch is now headed for a rehab assignment, which will start tomorrow at High-A St. Lucie. Beltran was watched by the Mets' top brass, including Omar Minaya, during an extended spring training game on Sunday and they felt the center fielder was ready to start his 20-day rehab clock. I've pushed the idea that Beltran needs to be up in Flushing as soon as he's physically able, but several people inside the game have told me that while there's merit in the concept, Beltran is human and needs a "spring training equivalent." The downside here is that he's going to be taxing the knee during that time. Of course, that's what rehab assignments are for. They'll be very controlled, perhaps not so much as the simulated games he's been in, but Beltran will have very specific steps and tests at each point. He'll have the DH option in most games as well, something he won't have when he makes it back to the Mets. Watching how often he needs to play there is going to be a big tell for his progress. The key will be how his knee responds and the Mets' ability to manage the inflammation and bruising that will inevitably occur inside the knee. The brace he is wearing is helping, but the continued idea that he's a center fielder is not. I'm most curious to see when that will be abandoned. One interesting concept that was tossed out by an MLB athletic trainer was the idea that Beltran could hit well enough to be in the lineup every day, but not play the field consistently. He wondered if there's a level and a cost where Beltran might make sense for an AL team. If Beltran were to show that, the idea of him being a modern-day Harold Baines would have to be intriguing for some teams as well as for the Mets escaping at least some of Beltran's contract. It's very equivalent to what the Twins did with Jim Thome, though he was a free agent.

The Dodgers pin their hopes of a three-peat on Kershaw and Billingsley along with other notes from around the major leagues.

It is as though the Dodgers have become totally defined by the divorce proceedings of their owner. The sun shines fully on Frank and Jamie McCourt these days while a team with a roster full of young stars and coming off consecutive National League West title seems to go unnoticed.

On the Beat: Mid-Week Update

John Perrotto

Scouts talk about NL players who could surprise, Mets owner Fred Wilpon hopes for better days in 2010, and other notes from around the majors.

Readers of this site have certainly been hit with much prognostic information with the release of the PECOTA projections and the refinements since the original numbers were published a few weeks back. Thus, you probably have a pretty good idea by now of who the system believes is going to improve this season, who is going to take a step backward and who will post statistics similar to their 2009 totals.
