BP Unfiltered: Alex Anthopoulos Always Checks His Math

We've already lost you. Come back: It makes sense!

Read the full article...

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

The Call-Up: Dalton Pompey

3

Jeff Moore and Ben Carsley

The Blue Jays bring up a prospect who has been hot. Molten hot.

The Situation: With Colby Rasmus slated to hit free agency after this season, Dalton Pompey's rise through the Blue Jays farm system coincides with the team's potential need this offseason.

Nick J. Faleris and Chris Mellen

The new co-directors of the BP Prospect team talk about their plan for coverage.

During any journey, change is inevitable, with the success of the trip often hinging upon a traveler’s ability to adapt to that change without losing his heading. When Nick and I first started outlining a plan for life after Jason Parks, our initial thoughts (after few deep breaths) gravitated to the trove of in-house talent Parks had assembled during his two seasons at the helm of the prospect team, and it quickly became apparent our ability to adapt would be more about tweaking and tightening what we have than undergoing any major overhaul.

The Call-Up: Daniel Norris

Craig Goldstein and Mark Anderson

The Blue Jays call up a top pitching prospect for the third time this season.

The Situation: With the postseason all but out of reach, the Blue Jays are promoting yet another of their top pitching prospects. Following the promotion of Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez earlier this year, left-hander Daniel Norris will cap off his season in the big leagues.

Pebble Hunting: Alex Anthopoulos' Amazing Offseason

11

Sam Miller

How the resurgent 2014 Blue Jays were built.

As the 2013 season concluded, Alex Anthopoulos’ chair in Toronto was, per reports and common sense, wobbly. “He needs a winning season in 2014 or he will likely be fired,” wrote Richard Griffin, in an article that suggested opposing teams had cracked his tactics, putting the Blue Jays in a disadvantageous position on the trade market. Now, of course, the Blue Jays are the class of the AL East, the most improved team (by winning percentage) in baseball from a year ago, and as likely to make the playoffs as the Tigers are. Clearly, Anthopoulos had a tremendous offseason. Clearly, he’ll be in contention for executive of the year. Anybody who foretold his dismissal clearly didn’t see this incredible act of General Managing in the winter of 2013-2014. Let’s review the seven key moves that Anthopoulos made:

What You Need to Know: Weekend Wrap-Up, 6/9

17

Daniel Rathman

How the Manny Machado incident(s) occurred, Jose Bautista's big night, the Tigers' bullpen problems, and more, plus what to watch today.

The Weekend Takeaway
By the bottom of the eighth inning of Sunday’s series finale, the Athletics and Orioles had seen just about enough of each other. With the A’s up 10-0 in the rubber match at Camden Yards, Fernando Abad threw at Manny Machado twice, and the second straight tight one led Machado to chuck his bat toward third baseman Alberto Callaspo:
