Transaction Analysis: The Slow Death of Hope

Tyson Ross didn't work out for the Rangers and Juan Nicasio's strange saga comes to a semi-satisfying end.

The Call-Up: Willie Calhoun

0

JH Schroeder

He can friggin hit.

The Situation: Willie Calhoun, perhaps the best pure hitter remaining in the high minors, received his call-up today. The Rangers needed to add Calhoun to the 40-man roster, and released Tyson Ross in a corresponding move. Calhoun has played a little second base and left field in the minors, transitioning to the outfield this season. Texas Rangers GM Jon Daniels indicated that Calhoun would only be called up if the team could offer him significant at-bats. Given the Rangers current injury situation, the team is now in the position to provide Calhoun ample opportunity.

The Background: Calhoun was selected in the fourth round of the 2015 draft, 132nd overall by the Dodgers, and signed for a slightly below-slot $347,500. Calhoun played junior college ball at Yavapai, one of the nation’s best programs located outside of Phoenix. Calhoun hit immediately upon his introduction to pro ball, finishing 2015 with a .316 batting average. In first full season Calhoun launched 27 home runs, and earned a Future’s Game nomination playing in Double-A for the Tulsa Drillers. Calhoun was the centerpiece of the Rangers haul for Yu Darvish at this season’s trade deadline.

Texas adds Miguel Gonzalez to the rotation and Chicago adds Leonys Martin to an already deep outfield.

Let It Eat: Bad Breaks

0

Ben Carsley

Think injuries have killed your favorite team? Well, you're not alone.

Injuries are a part of baseball, and they present hurdles that every team must overcome. Pretty much every team has lost at least one top-five player on its roster for some period of time, and many more regulars and depth players are lost along the way. Bones break. UCLs snap. Ligaments sprain. Hamstrings pull. Heads get knocked. And replacements take the field.

Brandon Phillips and the illusion of hindsight, by way of the one-time elite prospect.

Jurickson Profar first graced the electronic pages of Baseball Prospectus in Kevin Goldstein’s 2011 Top-101 prospect list. He checked in at 78th overall, sandwiched between Jake Odorizzi and one-time teammate Tanner Scheppers. By August of that same year, Jason Parks was listing him neck-and-neck with Manny Machado as the top shortstop prospect in the minors, extolling his five-tool talents and confidence, projecting him as a “first-division starter with All-Star appearances in his future.” We all know Profar’s story from that point on. He slotted in fourth overall by the next year’s list, and was a consensus no. 1 overall prospect on the 2013 iteration.

And it may not be the Tigers.

The Tigers' bullpen allowed a 5.71 ERA through Saturday. That’s bad. It blew eight saves. That’s bad too. It allowed 38 percent of inherited runners to score, which is bad, particularly since it inherited 56 of them (the MLB average is 49). It allowed an .819 OPS, 5.19 FIP, and 5.64 DRA. Let me go through those figures one at a time. They are bad, bad, and bad, respectively.
