Rumor Roundup: Closer Closer to Closing Deal

2

Daniel Rathman

Francisco Rodriguez will sign soon, Carlos Quentin could try first base, and Adam Lind might get a shot at non-platooning.

Brewers, Marlins appear to be the favorites to snag K-Rod
Now that Joba Chamberlain, who re-signed with the Tigers yesterday, is off the board, the veteran relief market is essentially down to Francisco Rodriguez and Rafael Soriano. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman wrote yesterday that K-Rod might soon leave Soriano as the last man standing.

Rumor Roundup: Yoan Moncada Sets A 10-Day Countdown

0

Chris Mosch

The Dodgers hope to add to the Yasiel Puig comp for Moncada. Meanwhile, the Phillies can't move Jonathan Papelbon.

Moncada hopes to sign by February 23
The Yoan Moncada saga appears to be headed for the stretch run. Moncada’s agent, David Hastings, told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN on Wednesday night that his client has four or five more private workouts scheduled within the next week and intends to make a decision by February 23rd. The first of those private workouts was for the Dodgers on Thursday in Clearwater, where several high-level Dodgers executives were on hand to watch, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. This is now the second time that top Dodgers front office personnel have seen Moncada in person and Hastings indicated to Crasnick that several of the other workouts held in the upcoming week will also be follow-ups.

The Dodgers, Yankees and Red Sox are still believed to be the favorites to land Moncada, but the Padres could end being a wild card in the bidding. Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports tweeted earlier this week that the Padres held a private workout for Moncada and that they “plan to be aggressive in bidding for him.” Regarding the Dodgers, it doesn’t appear any potential pursuit of fellow Cuban Hector Olivera will affect their bidding for Moncada. This, from J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News Group:

The cupboard is not empty. It's just close.

Welcome to the boring part of the offseason. Pitchers and catchers are a week away from reporting, and the hot stove is off now that James Shields has been signed and fitted for his habit. So how can we pass the time? You could read a book, watch a movie, connect with a loved one, argue with strangers on Twitter ... or you could embrace the spirit of Valentine's Day and seek relationships for nine interesting players who remain free agents. Let's do that.

The other benefit of catcher framing, revealed.

Of all of the recent advances in sabermetrics, catcher framing is likely the one with the greatest impact on our view of the game. Already, it has begun to affect our notions of player value, giving us a new respect for defensively-minded backstops. But even beyond that, our new knowledge of framing re-allocates a huge amount of the value we had implicitly assigned to the pitcher.

Catcher framing, and its effect on the game, are also difficult to measure rigorously. Fortunately, we are lucky enough to have Jonathan Judge, Harry Pavlidis, and Dan Brooks on the case. Their most recent article provided a precise framework for measuring much of the value due to catcher framing.

Rumor Roundup: Brew Crew Clues True?

0

Chris Mosch

Milwaukee rumors give some indication of what the Brewers plan to do with Yovani Gallardo's rotation spot.

Brewers not planning to pursue top-end starter to replace Gallardo
When news first broke Sunday that Yovani Gallardo was likely headed to Texas, there was speculation as to which path the team would take to fill the rotation spot left open in Milwaukee. The trade could mean the Brewers were committing to Jimmy Nelson as a part of this year’s starting rotation, or it could be a way to free up payroll and make a run at signing James Shields or trading for one of Washington’s surplus of starters.

Gallardo was owed $13 million in his final season before free agency, but as it turns out, the priority of the deal for Milwaukee wasn’t to save that cash. The club ended up sending $4 million to the Rangers as part of the deal, in part to cover the $1 million escalator in Gallardo’s contract that kicked in because of the trade, and presumably to ensure a better return in prospects. Tom Haudricourt, who covers the team for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, talked to Doug Melvin on Monday and tweeted a few takeaways pertaining to the future of the Brewers rotation.

A season after injuries destroyed everything, Texas adds Yovani Gallardo, who makes 30 starts like a lazy editor makes bad metaphors.

How much value does the Brewers Timeless Ticket promotion really hold?

The Milwaukee Brewers are asking you to guess when you’re going to die.

Not so explicitly, and this isn’t one of those carnival games where if you get it right within a year you walk away with the stuffed Scooter Gennett. But that’s the grim math behind what was a really fun promotion that was publicized yesterday after a relatively quiet October announcement.

Fantasy Team Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

0

J.P. Breen

Thump and speed in the lineup make up for a mediocre rotation and a possible by-committee closer situation.

The Milwaukee Brewers are an intriguing club for fantasy owners. The squad lacks any obvious flops who project to receive significant playing time. At worst, mediocrity should reign supreme—especially in the starting rotation—but one can reasonably expect above-average production at almost every offensive position. That’s what makes the Brewers attractive for owners; however, that’s also the reason why the Brew Crew could compete for an NL postseason berth, despite being forgotten by the masses due to a quiet offseason.

A note for our readers. While informative, since we are still months away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, these previews are far from definitive or complete. Free agent signings, trades, and other offseason news will change the landscape for most if not all teams. For any moves that take place after a team preview is written, please look to our Transaction Analysis coverage for instant reactions, and then check back on the Team Previews for more detailed updates (including lineups, rotations, bullpens, etc.) as we get closer to Opening Day.

The arduous job of sticking with a client through thin.

Jaye Chapman is a professional baseball player. I first scouted him while I was a student at FSU and he was a student at Chipola Junior College. Jaye was an Atlanta Braves draft-and-follow, back when those still existed. I had the pleasure of seeing him pitch against Lorenzo Cain and Michael Saunders at Tallahassee Community College in 2004; Jaye’s teammates on Chipola that day included Rene Tosoni, Tyler Flowers, and Mat Gamel. That’s six major leaguers on one junior college field.
