Preseason Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 3/1/12

4

Mike Petriello

Phil Hughes, Jamie Garcia, Chris Capuano, and Jake Peavy get the Preseason VP treatment this week

It’s March 1 as you’re reading this, and that is noteworthy if only because we’re finally into a month where there’s going to be real, live Major League Baseball that counts—even if the Japan-based series between the M’s and A’s will take place in the middle of the night for most of us. With the season fast approaching, fantasy drafts are really starting to heat up. Here are some thoughts on four pitchers who may or may not be on your radar for various reasons…

Phil Hughes | SP | New York Yankees
Mixed: $3 | AL-only: $10 |
PECOTA SP Rank: - | SP ADP: 67

On the Beat: Checking in on Pinstriped Pitching

3

John Perrotto

Some see the Yankees' rotation as a weakness, but Joe Girardi doesn't see things that way.

It was seemingly the Yankees' biggest need at this time last year. It was seemingly the Yankees' biggest need at the beginning of spring training in February. It was seemingly the Yankees' biggest need on the night they were eliminated by the Tigers in the American League Division Series in October.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Four: Yankees Even it Up

25

Jay Jaffe

In which the Yankees avoid getting burned for starting Burnett.

If momentum is the next day's starting pitcher, as Earl Weaver liked to say, then the Yankees went into Game Four of the AL Division Series against the Tigers with a distinct lack of it. Down 2-1 in the series and fresh off a loss in which they played their ace, CC Sabathia, the best the $200 million juggernaut could offer in a potential elimination game was A.J. Burnett. Though he helped the Yankees win a World Championship in 2009, the enigmatic and often frustrating $82.5 million righty has put up ERAs above 5.00 in each of the past two seasons while tying for fifth in the majors with 13 disaster starts (more runs than innings pitched). This wasn't how Joe Giradi had drawn it up; his initial plan was to use just three starers, with Sabathia returning for Game Four on three days' rest. Friday's suspended game scuttled those plans, and so this start loomed as an inevitability for four cliché-filled days.

With rain having scrambled his rotation plans, Joe Girardi is keeping his options open.

Sitting in on the press conferences of managers Jim Leyland and Joe Girardi for the third time in about 24 hours, one gets the sense that neither they nor their players are as fazed by the rain-induced schedule juggling as those of us covering the series. "This is not a crisis, this is postseason baseball," said Leyland on Saturday afternoon.

It's that time of year again: The baseball community comes together to question whether this is the last dance for the heralded Yankees closer.

One pitch was all it took to know that the story wasn't going to die. Summoned into Thursday afternoon's game between the Yankees and the Angels with two on, one out, and a four-run lead in the ninth inning, Mariano Rivera caught a bit too much of the inside part of the strike zone with his first offering, a 91 mph cutter. That was the opening that pinch-hitter Russell Branyan needed. Despite having not swung a bat in a game situation since July 23, the slugger smashed Rivera's meatball into the right-center field stands with his signature uppercut for a three-run homer.

Collateral Damage: Loose Lips Lead to DL Trips?

8

Corey Dawkins and Marc Normandin

Ryan Zimmerman starts healing, Phil Hughes goes back to the drawing board, Zach Braddock can't get to sleep, and David Freese becomes a metal man.

Athletes don't offer information about injuries to anyone, even their teams' medical staffs, unless they believe that their aches and pains are affecting their performance. Responsible medical staffs warn their young charges to inform them about any problems and not try to play through injuries, as they could easily damage themselves further and be forced to endure significantly longer recovery times.

Some athletes listen and start offering more information in hopes of avoiding significant downtime, but there are always others who try to push through the pain and end up in the clinic discussing surgical procedures with the doctors. Often the athletes who end up talking with the surgeons (reluctantly) do so not because their bodies are hurting, but because they have lost a few ticks on their fastball or slowed to 4.4 to first instead of 4.3. Unfortunately, this habit isn't automatically broken once a player turns 18.

Phil Hughes faces the prospect of season-ending surgery, Marc DeRosa's wrist acts up again, Casey Blake's elbow is infected, and Darren O'Day finds that it's hip to have tears.

Phil Hughes, NYA (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome)
As briefly discussed here, the Yankees finally put a name to the weakness and dead arm feeling that has limited Hughes so far this year. After almost eight hours of testing over two days, the medical staff believes that Hughes may be suffering from a condition called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) rather than simple fatigue or weakness.

TOS is a clinical diagnosis drawing upon the entire spectrum of symptoms, rather than radiographs alone. It offers no “Oh, he has [condition] as evidenced by the X-ray, therefore he will have TOS” moment—if only it were that simple.

Erick Almonte becomes a 7-day DL pioneer, Albert Pujols hamstrings it up, and Phil Hughes' arm still hasn't come back to life.

Erick Almonte, MIL (Concussion)
Almonte may never end up in the Hall of Fame, but he will go into the record books as the first major leaguer placed on the 7-day disabled list for a concussion. Normally we see concussions occurring during game conditions, but Almonte suffered his after a ball thrown in batting practice hit him in the forehead.

During our special on concussions, we discussed how the 7-day disabled list functions more as a roster insurance tool for teams than a way to ensure that players return safely, although it does make it easier for clubs to do the right thing. Return-to-play guidelines have been in effect for some time now, so the creation of a shorter DL stint merely gives team a littles extra flexibility in dealing with those pesky injuries that fall between "day-to-day" and "15-day."

Divide and Conquer, AL East: The Week the O's Stopped Winning

4

Ben Kabak

The Orioles show that they might not be quite ready to leave the nest, and the rest of the division's teams are ready to replace them in the standings.

Once upon a time, the Orioles were the Cinderella story of the American League East. After finishing the 2010 season 34-23 under the tutelage of new manager Buck Showalter, the Baltimoreans started this year 4-0 and were 6-1 after blanking the Texas Rangers last Saturday. It’s been a long, hard fall since then.

When the O’s wrapped up their 11-0 drubbing of Carl Pavano and the Twins last night, they earned their first victory since that Saturday shutout of the Rangers. In fact, when they went ahead on a Matt Wieters RBI in the second, they had their first lead in 39 innings. Their win marked the first time in five contests that the team had plated more than three runs in a game. So what went wrong during that disastrous section of the schedule?

Transaction Analysis: A Farewell to Arms

Ben Lindbergh

Replacing broken-armed MVP Josh Hamilton, lamenting the losses of Phil Hughes and Hong-Chih Kuo, April showers bring Jesus Flores, and where there's a Willits there's a way in Anaheim.

The third start with down velocity was the charm, as the Yankees starter goes to the DL with a sore arm.

New York Yankees
Placed SP Phil Hughes on the disabled list with a sore arm. [4/15]
Selected RP Lance Pendleton from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. [4/15]

Earlier today, Marc Normandin and Corey Dawkins addressed Hughes’ missing velocity and dismissed the idea that he is simply “fatigued” and in need of more stretching out. Normandin and Dawkins found the idea faulty because Hughes’ velocity woes are coming throughout his starts and not just at the end of his lines. Sure enough, the Yankees have confirmed what many suspected by placing Hughes on the disabled list with what the team is calling “a sore arm”.

Jason gives his first report from Tout Wars, so you can get an idea of who the experts are targeting on waivers (and if it's a good idea)

We are one week into the season and emotions are all over the place. If you were one of the two people in the world who targeted Willie Bloomquist in your draft, you are loving life, as he is stealing bases at a Vince Coleman-like pace. Conversely, if you spent big bucks on Carl Crawford, you are pulling your hair out, as he is well below the Mendoza line and has just two stolen bases on the season. I mentioned in my article last week that I feel trades made in April are not always the wisest moves, but I am all for aggressive behavior on the free agent waiver wire—that typically involves the release of draft day end-game speculations.
