Pitching Backward: The Cost of Being on Baseball's Bad Side

13

Jeff Long

What losing the All-Star game means for Baltimore.

Back in July 2013, news leaked that Baltimore was interested in hosting the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. The O’s had discussed internally the idea of hosting the multi-day event with the hopes of showcasing Camden Yards during its 25th season. The last time the O’s hosted the Midsummer Classic was in 1993, and early media reports noted the stars seemingly aligning in Baltimore’s favor:

The site generally alternates between National League and American League cities, and with Cincinnati hosting in 2015, the AL would likely be up the following year.

Rumor Roundup: The World Is Drunk On Burke Badenhop Rumors

6

Daniel Rathman

The Blue Jays and Nationals could be in on Burke Badenhop, while Jonny Gomes might find a fit in Atlanta.

Blue Jays, Nationals in talks with Burke Badenhop
After padding their lineup, most notably with the additions of Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin, the Blue Jays could still use a little bullpen depth to replace the departed Casey Janssen. So could the Nats, who’ve been busy in recent days, exporting Tyler Clippard to get Yunel Escobar, and then breaking the bank for Max Scherzer. FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi says those two clubs are eyeing a fellow right-hander whose mediocre strikeout rates belie his middle- and late-inning utility.

How come we never do transaction analyses for player development hires…

This is the worst time of the baseball calendar. There’s… nothing… going… on. Oh, there’s the odd free agent signing here and there, and I guess we’re getting into arbitration season where teams and arb-eligible players pretend that they are not going to just split the difference up until they get to the doorway of the hearing room. And there’s always the spring training truck. That will leave in a couple weeks. That’s nice.

Fantasy Team Preview: Washington Nationals

5

Mike Gianella

The Nats have been relatively quiet this offseason, but they're loaded with potential fantasy assets.

Unless you play in a dynasty or long-term keeper league and are already placing bets on the futures of Trea Turner and Joe Ross, the Nationals have had a very quiet offseason thus far. This is boring if you are an avid follower of the hot stove, but from a fantasy perspective boring can be good. Barring a late trade or free agent signing, the Nationals will be bringing most of the same core back for another run at a division title in 2015. The biggest loss for fantasy is Adam LaRoche, who the Nats allowed to leave so that Ryan Zimmerman could move to first base due to a chronic shoulder injury. The Nats are the kind of team that doesn’t seem to have any obvious superstars, but do have a number of reliable contributors who provide more fantasy value than you would expect at a glance. While this provides the potential for a few cornerstones, it does take away the odds of landing a sleeper; as a result, Washington does not have any sleepers identified for 2015.

[A note for our readers. While informative, since we are still months away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training, these previews are far from definitive or complete. Free agent signings, trades, and other offseason news will change the landscape for most if not all teams. For any moves that take place after a team preview is written, please look to our Transaction Analysis coverage for instant reactions, and then check back on the Team Previews for more detailed updates (including lineups, rotations, bullpens, etc.) as we get closer to Opening Day.]

Rumor Roundup: Upton and Ubaldo in One Ugly Rumor

5

Daniel Rathman

Plus: The Phillies might have moved on from a Cuban slugger, and the Nationals have multiple starters they could trade.

Phillies no longer covet Yasmany Tomas?
Along with news from CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman that the Cuban slugger might head to San Diego for next month’s Winter Meetings comes this nugget from MLB.com’s Paul Hagen: the Phillies, once perceived as the favorites to land Tomas, may be cooling on the idea.

Before They Were Prospects

David Rawnsley, Todd Gold and Patrick Ebert

A look back at some of the top prospects in the NL East, including J.P. Crawford, Steven Matz, and Michael Taylor.

As part of Perfect Game's partnership with Baseball Prospectus, David Rawnsley, Todd Gold and Patrick Ebert will be conducting a “Before They Were Pros” series, providing scouting reports on some of the top prospects in baseball from when they were in high school attending PG events. This six-part series (one for each division in MLB) will appear once Baseball Prospectus has provided their own detailed scouting reports of the top prospects, team-by-team, as part of their own series.
