Rumor Roundup: The Best Shapers Are Back

5

Daniel Rathman

Danny Espinosa aims for a bounceback, and—despite a former teammate's claims—Ryan Doumit is not done behind the plate.

Yep, it’s that time of year again: Danny Espinosa is in the best shape of his life
Nothing says spring training is near like tweets and articles about players who claim to be fitter than ever. Enter Danny Espinosa—and MLB.com’s Andrew Simon, the reporter with whom he spoke over the weekend. According to the Nationals infielder, the club has not closed the door on his days as an everyday contributor, and Espinosa hopes to prove worthy of taking back the keystone in Viera, Florida, over the next two months.

It’s tough to overstate how disastrous the 2013 campaign was for Espinosa, who chipped in 3.6 WARP in 2011 and 2.1 WARP in 2012 before falling off a cliff. The 26-year-old was never a particularly disciplined hitter—he struck out 166 and 189 times in his first two big-league seasons—but the Nationals derived plenty of value from his power-and-speed tandem, as well as his above-average defense at second base. Last year, all of those things fell by the wayside.

The tater trots for July 23 (and the weekend): Mike Napoli hits a bomb, Carlos Gonzalez takes a stroll, and Chase Utley edges out Josh Rutledge.

It's been a few days since the last Tater Trot Tracker post. And though I was able to time each trot over the weekend, I missed highlighting a few special home runs. The biggest homers of note came on Saturday, when Cole Hamels served up a home run to Matt Cain in the top of the third inning and then, in the bottom of the inning, Cain returned the favor to Hamels. It was the first time two starters had hit home runs in the same inning since 1990. Hamels, who had never hit a home run before, won the race between the two pitchers, besting Cain's 21.51 second trot with a 21.13 second trot of his own.

Resident Fantasy Genius: Value Picks Paying Off

4

Derek Carty

It's early, but as a group, Derek's value picks have picked up value.

I received an e-mail earlier this week from a Baseball Prospectus reader congratulating me on the early-season success of my value picks from my Fantasy Tier Rankings.  While celebrating the success of these players in April is akin to celebrating a new American Pie movie before experiencing the disappointment of actually seeing it (read: premature… see what I did there), it’s still kind of fun.  And hey, combined, my value picks have accrued 669 plate appearances—roughly a full season’s worth of at-bats.  So today, I’m going to take a (very early) look at which of my picks are panning out and which aren’t.

I’m going to ignore the Four- and Five-Star Value Picks because, well, most of them weren’t really values.  Everyone knows that Albert Pujols is a good player, so I’m not going to bother going over him.  Instead, I’ll focus on the one-, two-, and three-star guys that you likely acquired on the cheap.  These are going to be the moneymakers of a fantasy team, the guys that you’re hoping to make big profits on.

In case you missed Mike Fast's extraordinary research into quantifying the heretofore hidden contributions of catchers, we're moving it back to the top of the list for the weekend.

I Was Framed
Catchers play a central role in the game of baseball through their involvement with every pitch that their pitchers throw. One of their key tasks is receiving borderline pitches without discouraging the umpire from calling strikes.

Divide and Conquer, NL Central: Winless in Milwaukee

2

Larry Granillo

The Pirates' continuing struggles at Miller Park might help make the Brewers' season.

On Sunday, the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates for their 70th win of the season. The game dropped the formerly feisty Pirates to 56-63, thirteen games behind the division-leading Brewers. Charlie Morton, Pittsburgh's biggest success story of the season, started the game on Sunday and seemed to have the win in the bank. After extending his scoreless inning streak to 24 with 7.1 innings of four-hit, no-run ball, Morton left the game with a runner on second, one out, and a one-run lead. After Jose Veras got the second out in the inning, closer Joel Hanrahan came in for the four-out save. Hanrahan struck out Nyjer Morgan to end the eighth, but the ball got away from catcher Michael McKenry, and Morgan streaked to first. Ryan Braun made good on the free opportunity two pitches later, and the game was tied. Milwaukee would go on to win it in the tenth inning on a sacrifice fly from Morgan, wasting the great start from Morton and securing the sweep.

The game also marked Pittsburgh's 34th loss in 36 games at Miller Park, a streak dating back to May 2007. At that time, Jason Bay was hitting cleanup in a lineup that featured Jose Bautista as the starting third baseman and a right-field platoon of Xavier Nady and Ryan Doumit. The Pirates had come into Milwaukee for a four-game series sitting on a 12-14 record. Tom Gorzelanny earned the win in the first game, when Bay, Bautista, and others combined for a four-run seventh-inning en route to a 4-2 victory. The next night, the Brewers pounded Pittsburgh's pitching by scoring one run in four of the first five innings before erupting for six more in the sixth and seventh innings. The 10-0 loss was harsh, but no one knew it meant anything more than that. Milwaukee finished out that early-May series with a convincing 6-3 victory on Saturday and a tight 6-4 victory on Sunday, when Pittsburgh tied it up at four in the seventh before giving it up again in the eighth.

An ill-timed injury might lead to less prospect treasure for the Pirates, the Orioles reshuffle their rotation and bid farewell to a Grapefruit League hero, and the Twins get more bad news.

The tater trots for May 8: Mother's Day was a very nice day for Derek Jeter, monster blasts, and speedy trots.

It was Mother's Day yesterday, which means Major League Baseball was trotting out the pink bats (and other paraphernalia) to support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. I'm a big fan of the partnership and I'm glad MLB has continued the tradition. I will say, though, that I wasn't a big fan of all the pink Phiten-type necklaces that everyone was wearing.
