Certainly no blockbuster and there are some questions with him, but 9 million is not too steep a price for taking a chance.Dec 21, Parker Bridwell (SP) Acquired Off Waivers From NY YankeesBridwell was a victim (along with Jose Fernandez) of the Rule 5 Draft when he was DFA’d for the Angels to make room for Jose Suarez, Luis Rengifo, and Luis Madero. The Angels clearly were not done with him since they scooped him back up after the Yankees DFA’d him to make room for J.A. Happ.Dec 28, Jonathan Lucroy © Signed as Free Agent (one-year contract 3.35MM)Certainly no Ramos or Grandal, Lucroy had a 70 wRC+ and .241/.291/.325 slash line last year. He is not a great defensive catcher and his 30% caught stealing rate last year was a few ticks about his career mark of 28%.Jan 16, John Curtiss (RP) Traded from Twins for Daniel OzoriaEppler picked up another cheap bullpen arm with upside that has velocity but has struggled at the big league level.Jan 17, Cody Allen (RP) Signed as Free Agent (one-year contract $8.5MM with $2MM in incentives based on games finished)Eppler finally spent some money on a bullpen arm and it’s a closer. Allen wanted to close somewhere and he’ll get that chance with the Angels. Hopefully Allen is much better than his 4.70 and 0 WAR self from 2018.

His 2015 Royals famously road talent, guts and guile all the way to a world championship. “They try and put numbers on all different stuff in sports these days,” said Holland. “But you can’t put a quantified number on a clubhouse meshing and getting along. In Kansas City Zach Davies Jersey , if you stacked the numbers up, maybe we weren’t the best team but we played like it. We knew our roles and took care of each other. If you have a clubhouse that fits together, that translates into a lot of wins.[] Marte confident transition to CF will be smooth - “We feel like he’s capable of going out there and taking on that challenge,” D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. “I know that we would be asking a lot of him, but we’ve done a lot of work and we’ve done a lot of preparation as far as conversation and just making sure that he understands the reason for us considering this. I feel like he’s going to get a lot of looks in Spring Training and we’re going to see how that plays out, and he’s assured us that he’s comfortable and ready for that challenge.”[AZ Central] Ketel Marte says he’s good to go in center field - Ketel Marte says he’s confident he can be the Diamondbacks’ answer in center field this season, and he sounded comfortable with the idea of bouncing between the outfield and the infield, a reversal from comments he made during the offseason. “I feel that I can be good out there,” said Marte, who was the club’s primary second baseman last season. “I know I’m going to be good. I’ve played center field before. I’m athletic with the talent to play anywhere.”[Arizona Sports] D-backs aim for stability with faith behind Lovullo, Hall says- “The greatest thing about Torey Lovullo and the biggest reason why we extended him is because of humility. In the dugout, out of the dugout , in the clubhouse, out of the clubhouse, every player that plays for him believes in him and loves him,” Hall said, adding the D-backs extended Lovullo “to show the stability. I think one of the worst things you can have — in particular with a manager who you really like and you believe in his future and you hope he’s going to be here a long time — is he looks like a lame duck.”[] Carson Kelly is familiar with spring facility - Right-hander Braden Shipley, who had surgery last September to remove bone spurs in his elbow, said he felt good after throwing his bullpen session Thursday. “It wasn’t allowing me to have my arm in a consistent slot on a day-to-day basis,” Shipley said of the injury. “So every day was just kind of feeling what I had that day. Command was inconsistent, breaking pitch was inconsistent and now I feel like everything is coming out of the same slot, and I’m able to really feel the ball out front.”[Arizona Sports] D-backs must decide if Rule 5 pick Nick Green is worthy of roster spot- “You have roughly 45 days to look at somebody and see what they’re very good at and what they’re working on for the future,” Lovullo said. Lovullo said he creates comfortable environments early to get to know Rule 5 players before placing them in high-leverage situations. “You’re looking at somebody that will have to be at the big league level,” he said. “There’s really no margin for error. I think accepting that responsibility as a player and knowing that you’re having to execute right now tells me a lot.”And elsewhere...[USA Today] Trevor Bauer: Indians pitcher says he faced 'character assassination' - The spin used against him in the arbitration hearing? “Basically Boone Logan Jersey , that I’m a terrible human being," Bauer said, “which was interesting on their part. I thought that giving to charity, especially because they didn’t mention it was a charitable campaign, just mentioned the name. They don’t mention that I gave to 68 charities or that I donated over $100,000. Or that the whole point of the campaign was to bring awareness to all those charities. Nothing about that.
