Pablo Sandoval heads back to San Francisco, the Twins add much-needed rotation help in Jaime Garcia, and the Mariners swap four minor leaguers for David Phelps.

The first quarter of the season has not been kind to the Giants, Mets, Pirates, and Mariners.

To slightly tweak a well-worn saying, you can't win a playoff spot in the first quarter of the season, but you can lose it.

The following four teams have seen their BP Playoff Odds decline the most since Opening Day, through slow starts, crowded disabled lists, and various other calamities. Let's take a closer look at how each team fell so far so fast, as well as how they might climb out of the early hole with three-quarters of the season left to play.

The Call-Up: Christian Arroyo

0

Wilson Karaman and Mark Barry

Mister Christian / Oh the time has come / And you know that you're the only one...

The Situation: The Giants are rocking a collective .236 TAv, which is 25th in baseball, and while their 69 runs scored entering play yesterday was nice and all, it rated just 23rd. Starting third baseman Eduardo Nunez has been a big ol’ part of that problem, sitting on a .208 TAv his own damn self, and the now-DFA’ed Chris Marrero had failed to plug the hole left behind by left fielder Jarrett Parker’s broken collarbone. Enter number two prospect Christian Arroyo, owner of a ho-hum .446/.478/.692 line through 16 games at Triple-A Sacramento.

The Background: The Giants drafted Arroyo 25th overall in 2013 as a prep shortstop, signing him to a slot deal and sending him to the Arizona Rookie League, where he promptly hit .326 in a 45-game professional debut. Outside of a briefly rude introduction to full-season pitching the following year, he hit everything thrown at him up to Double A, climbing to the organizational top spot heading into the 2016 season. Still just 21, he yesterday became the lucky thirteenth member of the first round of his draft class to step between the lines of a big-league baseball game.

The no. 1 pick in the 2008 draft has not turned out as expected, yet very little has changed.

Tim Beckham played his 162nd major-league game Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a home run as the Rays’ starting shortstop.

Circle Change: Buster Posey, Remix Artist

Giants pitchers throw whatever Buster Posey tells them to, sometimes even dusting off pitches they haven't used in years.

Let’s start with three interconnected facts.

Just when it looked like the Giants were doing their usual October thing, the Cubs came back to win Game 4 and the NLDS.

For eight innings, this was a boring game. It’s playoff baseball, so there’s a pretty high floor in terms of interest level, but if a playoff game can be boring, this was. Maybe Monday night's 13-inning fever dream just set the bar too high, but for whatever reason, not much stood out. John Lackey versus Matt Moore didn’t seem like it was going to be a marquee matchup, and it wasn’t; aside from the occasional moment of Javier Baez brilliance, the innings seemed filled with forgettable moments.
