Transaction Analysis: It's Olivera Now, Baby Blue

R.J. Anderson

The Dodgers get the last big name on the free agent market, Cuban infielder Hector Olivera. Meanwhile, Brian Dozer gets certainty, while Jhoulys Chacin gets freedom, of a sort.

How the Rockies have obtained and drafted slider-leaning pitchers.

Every day until Opening Day, Baseball Prospectus authors will preview two teams—one from the AL, one from the NL—identifying strategies those teams employ to gain an advantage. Today: unsolvable-yet-succeeding Oakland Athletics and the solvable-yet-losing Colorado Rockies.

Previous team previews: Giants | Royals | Dodgers | Rays | Astros | Padres

The Phillies are still shopping, Wilin Rosario might play some first, and the Luke Scott show is back from Korea.

Phillies could go shopping for veteran catcher and/or shortstop
General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has said in recent days that the roster he has now is the one he expects to travel to Clearwater, Florida, for spring training. It might not, however, be the group that comes back north for Opening Day. ESPN’s Jayson Stark heard straight from the horse’s mouth that an experienced backstop or shortstop might be heading to Philadelphia before early April, even though it’s unlikely to happen before camp begins.

Daisy Cutter: Baseball's Greatest One-Hit Wonder

23

Sahadev Sharma

Finding the man who had only one great season but a huge impact nonetheless.

There has been much excitement since it was announced that Harper Lee would finally be releasing a second book. Who wouldn’t be pumped to read more adventures with Scout, Atticus Finch, that one dude, and that other person? Ah, I love To Kill a Mockingbird. The way they just [clenches fist] kill all those mockingbirds. Okay, truth time, I haven’t actually read To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s on my to-do list, I swear, I just haven’t gotten to it yet. By all accounts, it’s quite wonderful, I’m sure I’ll love it when I finally get to it. I have fond memories of my brother doing pretty much every single book report he ever did as a child on that book. I mean, he bestowed the middle name Atticus upon one of his children, so yeah, he’s a fan.

Still, when I heard the news, my mind, as it tends to do no matter the subject, went to baseball. Is there a Harper Lee in the baseball world?

Transaction Analysis: An Ax To Sign

2

R.J. Anderson

The Rockies get a couple big-league pitchers, Steve Lombardozzi's brings back ever-smaller returns, and some backup catchers are employed again.

THe Diamondbacks, Rockies, Dodgers, Giants and Padres are linked in various combinations to James Shields, Yoan Lopez and Dillon Gee.

Yoan Lopez poised to break international signing record
While many are waiting for the Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) to clear infielder Yoan Moncada to sign with major-league organizations, a countryman and namesake is likely to beat him to the punch.

2015 Prospects: Colorado Rockies Top 10 Prospects

32

Nick J. Faleris and BP Prospect Staff

Some near-ready impact arms and high-ceiling, low-level bats fill the Rockies system.

Also, Nori Aoki is wandering around with no clear direction or intent; the Rockies want pitching, if you can imagine; and the Red Sox are willing to give up Allen Craig, if you can imagine.

At least three teams still vying for Norichika Aoki
While other lower-tier free agent outfielders, like Nick Markakis and Alex Rios, have already come off the board, Aoki remains available, with multiple clubs hoping to bring him in. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman says the Mariners, Orioles, and Reds are “among possibilities” for the left-handed hitter entering his fourth year in the United States.

Transaction Analysis: Royals Bank on a Rios Rebound

4

R.J. Anderson, Ben Carsley and Nick Shlain

The Royals add another aging bat, the Marlins hope a move to first keeps Morse healthy, the Rockies add bench depth, the Yankees keep some rotation depth, the Cubs and Orioles build pen depth, and a low-risk, but possibly not-so-high-reward arm, lands in San Diego.
