Notes from the Field: Spring Notes

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.

Rumor Roundup: Bringing Back Bailey

0

Daniel Rathman

The Reds try to extend Homer Bailey, and the Nationals consider reshaping the back end of their bullpen.

Reds “optimistic” about extension talks with Homer Bailey
As more and more high-end pitchers sign long-term extensions with their first big-league teams, those who don’t become hot commodities when they reach free agency. That, in turn, increases the incentive for pitchers to test the market and makes it more difficult for smaller-market clubs to retain them.

A three-way trade unites Jose Molina and Ryan Hanigan as a dreamy defensive duo.

Raising Aces: Bush League: Robert Stephenson

6

Doug Thorburn

A mechanical look at one of the highest-ceiling pitching prospects in baseball.

Robert Stephenson was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round (no. 27 overall) of the 2011 draft. Selected out of a northern California high school, Stephenson was the first prep pitcher to be popped in the first round by Cincy since Homer Bailey was taken with the seventh-overall pick in 2004. Stephenson began the 2012 season in extended spring training and did not make his professional debut until June of that year, but he cruised through rookie ball and spent two months with Dayton of the Midwest League. He returned to Dayton to begin the 2013 season, where Stephenson stepped on the accelerator and quickly rose up through the system.

One Move: National League Central

28

Craig Goldstein

A look at what the Cardinals could do to stay on top, and what their division rivals could do to catch them.

This is the fourth installment in the One Move series. If you'd like to check out any of the previous editions in this series, you can find them here: AL Central, NL West, AL East.

Chicago Cubs
The Move: Trade for David Price
Originally, there was a detailed trade offer above. Upon further review, however, I don’t want this to be about whether the offer was good enough. The Cubs have the pieces to make the move, and while the Rays asking price might be too expensive for it to be a worthwhile move, there seems to be a middle ground that could work for both teams. I’m advising the Cubs to make this trade under the condition that it would fall in that middle ground. This means no, it will not consist of Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, and Albert Almora. It also means that, no, it will not consist of Christian Villanueva, Kyle Hendricks, and Mike Olt. Instead, imagine a scenario that makes it hard for either team to pull the trigger immediately but in the end makes both organizations better.
