Painting the Black: Spring Flings

9

R.J. Anderson

Some teams are spending the spring trying out potential positional mates. Who should win these battles?

With the first week of the exhibition season in the books, teams now have less than a month before their Opening Day rosters are due. Most clubs have an open spot or two up for grabs, typically in the bullpen or off the bench, but a few are staging auditions of greater importance this spring. Here are 10 intriguing positional battles along with a prediction of who we believe ought to win the jobs.

Rumor Roundup: Extending Trout

7

Daniel Rathman

The Angels try to keep Trout around, plus updates on Ervin Santana and Kendrys Morales.

Angels, Mike Trout in talks about six-year, $150 million extension
Earlier this winter, there was buzz that the Angels might approach Mike Trout about a long-term contract that would guarantee him more money up front, perhaps in exchange for an extra year or two in a Halos uniform. Now, Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan has given us a window into what such a contract might look like.

Rumor Roundup: Whither Santana?

4

Daniel Rathman

Ervin Santana might not be Toronto-bound, plus news about Raul Ibanez' ongoing defensive adventures and Nick Franklin's future home.

Ervin Santana probably won’t land north of the border
Once word leaked that Ubaldo Jimenez was going to become an Oriole, some presumed that the Blue Jays would ante up and reel in the other remaining high-profile free agent starting pitcher. But ESPN’s Jayson Stark has heard from multiple sources that general manager Alex Anthopoulos does not intend to break the bank for Ervin Santana.

Stark wrote on Wednesday that the Blue Jays will come away with Santana only if his asking price falls into the range they have in mind. If agent Bean Stringfellow sticks to his guns, industry sources—both in other organizations and on the player-representation side—don’t believe that the Blue Jays will budge.

Rumor Roundup: Extensions Afoot?

6

Daniel Rathman

The Angels talk contract with Mike Trout, the Royals try to decide what to do with their bullpen, and Seattle reassesses its needs.

Royals could explore multi-year deal with Greg Holland
The Royals got on the same page with their closer on Wednesday, when the sides compromised on a $4.675 million salary for the 2014 season. Kansas City Star beat writer Andy McCullough wrote in the article summing up the agreement that a longer-term pact might be in the cards.

Holland turned in a third consecutive elite season last year, recording 47 saves in 50 tries to go with a shiny 1.21 ERA that meshed well with his 1.39 FIP. He struck out 103 batters, issued only 18 walks, and served up only three home runs in 67 innings. You could easily argue that the 28-year-old was the league’s best closer.

Rumor Roundup: Catching Up with Catcher News

Daniel Rathman

The Nats and Rays talk trade, Jesus Montero transitions to first, and the Twins eye Cuban free agents.

Twins eyeing two players at Cuban showcase
Infielder Aledmys Diaz and right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne, two Cuban free agents who have been (or will soon be) cleared to sign with major-league teams, will hold a showcase today. The Twins will be one of the teams in attendance.

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.
