The Red Sox' rotation has been solid to date, but if it needs reinforcement, Allen Webster could soon be ready to provide it.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Allen Webster, RHP, Red Sox (Triple-A Pawtucket): 5.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K; With a fastball up to 95, a plus changeup, and a usable slider, Webster is close to making the jump to the majors.

A missed flight resulted in David Dahl's demotion to extended spring training, landing the Rockies prospect in "The Ugly."

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Jake Odorizzi, RHP, Royals (Triple-A Durham): 6.2 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K; Odorizzi, acquired by the Rays in the James Shields trade, uses a fastball, curveball, slider, and changeup to attack hitters. Odorizzi combines excellent athleticism with a very smooth, repeatable delivery to consistently pound the strike zone. His fastball may be the only plus pitch in his arsenal, but I would still expect him to be a successful major-league pitcher when his number is called.

It's been 4 years, and Smoak's not yet a force in the middle of a big league lineup. What gives?

The Backstory
Smoak was drafted by the Texas Rangers with the 11th overall pick in the 2008 draft, viewed by many as one of the top bats available. After the unexpected fall from the top 10, Smoak signed at the deadline for a well above-slot bonus ($3.5M) and reported to the Midwest League, where the switch-hitting first baseman showcased his talent in his brief full-season debut. Coming in, Smoak was lauded for his approach to hitting and his smooth stroke from both sides of the plate, a swing that projected to produce both a high batting average and over-the-fence power, making Smoak a potential middle-of-the-order monster.

Smoak’s first full-season in the minors had its peaks and valleys, crushing in his Double-A debut, then getting injured for a month with a strained oblique, then returning and struggling in his first taste of Triple-A, then finally rising back up to his potential and leading the USA to gold in the World Cup. His swing was still praised for being fluid and easy from both sides of the plate, and his mature approach was said to be among the very best in the minors. His glove at first was seen as a well above-average tool, and he possessed a total defensive package at the position that could make him a weapon at a less-than-premium spot on the diamond. He lacked speed and plus athleticism, but the footwork was good, the arm was strong, and the glove was called a vacuum.

The Yankees' double switch on Saturday leads to a dumbshow in the outfield.

In the eighth inning of Saturday's Yankees-Nationals game, Joe Girardi attempted to double switch. The goal was to replace pitcher Cory Wade with Boone Logan, shift DeWayne Wise from left to right field, and bench Andruw Jones in favor of Jayson Nix. But the Yankees, being an AL team, don't double switch often. All hell broke loose.
