Rumor Roundup: Pitching at a Premium

0

Chris Mosch

The secondary pitching market has little remaining, with a glut in the outfield, the Padres aren't done making moves, and the Blue Jay may look to the Far East to fix their second-base hole.

When the Cubs locked up Jon Lester to a six-year deal last week at the Winter Meetings, the expectation was that would set off a series of signings in the starting pitcher market. There has yet to be much movement in the courtship of either Max Scherzer or James Shields, but things may soon pick up for teams looking for a cheaper alternative:

Fantasy Team Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

7

Wilson Karaman

The Jays have the longest active postseason drought in the majors, but they also have players that can help your fantasy team get there.

With the Royals’ magic carpet ride to Game Seven of the World Series in October, the dubious distinction for longest playoff drought in Major League Baseball now belongs to the Toronto Blue Jays, who haven’t played a meaningful game since Joe Carter touched ‘em all. But despite those real-world sorrows the Canadian club continues to produce valuable fantasy players year after year, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Rogers Center again played as one of the best ballparks in baseball to catch a souvenir in 2014, and the Blue Jays’ high octane offense checked in third in the Majors in both homeruns and team ISO, fifth in runs scored, and eighth in TAv. And for its part, the pitching staff, while overall poor and inconsistent, managed to produce some sneaky interesting performances. With a wave of young pitching talent set to break imminently, there is promise for more in the immediate future as well.

The Jays will enter this off-season set up for a relatively modest amount of turnover. Two of their starting outfielders from a year ago, Melky Cabrera and Colby Rasmus, will hit free agency, and while the club recently shipped Adam Lind to Milwaukee in order to clear some payroll, it appears unlikely either will be back with Toronto in 2015. Pitching-wise, the rotation cup is poised to runneth over. Last year’s starting five should all remain under club control, and while the club recently declined injury-riddled Brandon Morrow’s option several young MLB-ready prospects will be waiting in the wings for trial runs throughout the year. The departures of closer Casey Janssen and injured set-up man Sergio Santos will open up the back of the bullpen for a competition or free agent signings as well. Let’s take a look at how the roster is currently shaping up as we enter the offseason.

Scouting and fantasy takes on this week's second-tier, but still intriguing, call-ups.

We’ve devoted full articles to the most promising prospects promoted to the majors late this season, but we're offering scouting and fantasy takes on the best of the rest here.

Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, RHP, Phillies
Scouting Take:
The Cuban import entered 2014 having not thrown a competitive pitch since he left his home country. Gonzalez’s medicals revealed some injury concerns that prompted the Phillies to rework his deal and turn him into a reliever this year. He worked in the low 90s as a starter but can work in the mid-90s as a reliever. He also has a splitter and a spotty breaking ball. The Phillies still have plans to convert him back into a starter next year but he’ll have to tighten up the command and work on the breaking ball. —Mauricio Rubio
