Monday Morning Ten Pack: The Prospects Who Disappointed
by
Jason Parks and BP Prospect Staff

<< Previous Tag Entries Next Tag Entries >>

Looking at the fast starts of Jose Abreu and Masahiro Tanaka to see what we can expect moving forward.

With due respect to the rest of a talented rookie class, no two newcomers face more pressure to succeed in 2014 than Jose Abreu and Masahiro Tanaka. The expectations exist for obvious reasons: both are older, better paid, and more experienced (albeit in international competition) than the typical rookie. Now two weeks into the season, the winter's most prominent imports have compiled fantastic statistics. But, before the league adjusts and vice versa, do they pass the eye test—or are these two more cases of April numbers ran amok?

What You Need to Know: The New Class of Shift Candidate

7

Daniel Rathman

The Yankees shift more often, plus the news from Monday and what to watch today.

The Monday Takeaway
As the Yankees’ beat writers have learned during the first week of the season, manager Joe Girardi is utilizing defensive shifts more liberally than he did last year.

After two years on the shelf with a shoulder injury, Michael Pineda appears to have recovered his old stuff.

The Yankees got a major boost during the opening week when Michael Pineda took the mound for his first MLB game since 2011. When we last saw Pineda, he was wearing a Mariners uniform and facing a sudden dropoff in velocity, the first sign of the shoulder woes that have kept him out of the big leagues since his days in Seattle.

Painting the Black: The Mystery Men of Opening Day

R.J. Anderson

Not one of Tyler Collins' or Roenis Ellis' PECOTA comparables was a major leaguer. But Collins, Ellis, and the rest of these unknowns are on MLB rosters today.

Opening Day is here, and that means it's time to introduce the unknowns who made rosters. This year's edition includes some new quirks. In addition to an expanded roster, each capsule now includes the player's major league service time (MLS) and the percentage of their PECOTA comparables who played in the bigs during the comparable season (MLB%), as a crude way to determine the unexpectedness of their Opening Day assignment.

Rumor Roundup: Competition in Coors

5

Daniel Rathman

The Rockies try to settle on a center fielder, and the Yankees consider moving a catcher.

Rockies’ center-field competition a four-horse race
Most teams that have openings in their starting lineup are holding spring training competitions for two players or, in some cases, three. The Rockies? They’ve got four players contending to be manager Walt Weiss’ primary center fielder.

Rumor Roundup: An Infield Fix for the Yankees?

1

Daniel Rathman

The Yankees might deal from depth to fix a hole, Brian Dozier wants to stay in Minnesota, and more.

Yankees could trade a catcher for an infielder or reliever
Yes, you read that correctly: The team that gave Chris Stewart 340 plate appearances behind the dish last year now has a surplus at the catcher position. According to George A. King III of the New York Post, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is considering parting with one of his homegrown backstops for depth at a shallower position.

Transaction Analysis: The Gardner Constant

R.J. Anderson

The Yankees make the rare decision to lock up a player, inking Brett Gardner for at least the next four years.

A potentially overpaid outfielder turns out to be a bargain, and the Yankees and Red Sox add injury prone arms.

Which teams' glass slippers best fit the six still-unsigned top-50 free agents?

It was new and exciting in November, mundane in December, and comforting and familiar in January. But by mid-February, speculating about likely landing spots for attractive free agents is as tired as publicly celebrating the Beatles.*

Granted, the alternative would be talking about the sort of stuff that otherwise occupies us early in spring training: what players look like; what players look like from afar; what players might look like from afar, if we could see them; what players look like upside-down; meaningless quotes about team chemistry. There’s only so much we can do to combat the boring until real baseball begins.

Tying up the Tanaka loose ends.

R.J. Anderson wrote the rapid response to the news that Masahiro Tanaka had agreed to a seven-year, $155 million contract with the Yankees. That's where you’ll find all the juicy details on the player and the contract, which you should want to take a look at. This is where you’ll find a few other thoughts that crossed my mind as I digested the signing, as laid out below.

The $189 million mark, in memoriam
December 4, 2011. That’s the day when we first heard, via the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, that the Yankees were determined to keep their 2014 payroll below $189 million, which they blew by in adding Tanaka. This is how long ago that was: Mike Trout’s career OPS was .672, and Alex Rodriguez and Randy Levine were still penpals. Granted, Steinbrenner never technically guaranteed that the team’s payroll would sink below the luxury tax threshold, but he came close, saying, “I’m looking at it as a goal, but my goals are normally considered a requirement.”
