Dodgers facing pitching crunch before Sunday’s roster deadline

content_img

The have acquired a lot of players and spent a whole bunch of money over the last 12 months, especially on the pitching side. They have a logjam of arms to clear before Sunday’s 3 p.m. ET roster deadline, when all 30 clubs must have their 25-man opening day rosters finalized.

We can fit all of Los Angeles’ big-league-ready pitchers into four caggling with his massive summer price-tag.Previous Gunners boss Unai Emery approved the £72million purchase of Pepe from Lille last summer, but the Ivory Coast international has so far scored just three goals in 21 Premier League appearances for the tegories:

: LHP , RHP , RHP , RHP , LHP , RHP , RHP , LHP

This is the easiest group. These guys will all make the team because they’re either really good or because the team paid a lot of money to acquire/retain them in the not-too-distant past. As easy as it gets.

: LHP

Elbert resumed throwing this week after on his elbow. He’ll begin the year on the DL and appears to be a few weeks from returning.

: RHP , LHP , RHP

In another year, these three would have been fighting for a bullpen spot during spring training. Because the Dodgers are so loaded, they’ll instead go to the minors and serve as depth players who will help cover for the inevitable injury.

: LHP , RHP , LHP , RHP , RHP , RHP

Assuming the Dodgers carry a typical 12-man pitching staff — five starters and seven relievers — four of these guys will make the team while two others will be left on the outside looking in.

Gregg is on a minor-league contract. Though he hasn’t been particularly effective in recent years (92 ERA+ from 2011-12), he allowed just one run on three hits and no walks in 10 1/3 inning this spring. Guerrier had a rough spring (6.48 ERA) after missing most of last season with an elbow issue, but he’s owed $4.75 million in 2013. Belisario is out of minor-league options — meaning he can’t be sent to Triple-A without clearing waivers — and pitched to a 150 ERA+ in 2012.

Capuano, Harang and Lilly are where it gets really interesting. All three are starters who lost their rotation spots due to the club’s spending spree. Capuano, 34, finished the spring strong after a rough start (7.20 ERA overall). As a lefty, he could move into the bullpen to complement Howell. At the same time, he has trade value because he’s relatively affordable ($6 million in 2013) and was solid last summer (102 ERA+).

Harang, 34, has also had a rough spring overall (8.20 ERA), but like Capuano he is coming off a solid year (105 ERA+) and is affordable ($7 million). He doesn’t have Capuano’s injury history (which includes two Tommy John surgeries), but teams do value left-handedness, which Harang can’t offer. He also doesn’t have much experience pitching out of the bullpen.

Lilly, 37, has pitched to a 14.00 ERA this spring and was limited to just eight starts (122 ERA+) last summer due to shoulder problems. Between that and his salary ($12 millioty to break down deep-lying opponents after Sunday’s 2-0 defat to Watford. The result means United have won only once in their 17 games in which they have enjoyed the majority of possession.”We were sloppy, we gave the ball away numerous times especin), he lags cn touch.Mihajlovic was diagnosed with leukaemia in July, so spent all of pre-season and most of the campaign so far in hospital undergoing two courses of chemotherapy.“Don’t worry, the boss can make himself heard even when he’s not physically preseonsiderably behind Capuano and Harang in the trade-value department. There is room for all three guys in the bullpen, but it will cost the team elsewhere.

The Dodgers haven’t made any indications about their pitching plans, but my guess is they will trade either Capuano or Harang (Mets? Rockies?) before Sunday’s deadline and somehow cut ties with Guerrier. That could mean a trade, a release or a trip through waivers. Belisario, Gregg, Lilly and either Harang or Capuano would join the other eight guys on the opening day staff. Injuries (Lilly’s shoulder? Guerrier’s elbow?) could change things, obviously.

That is all just a guess on my part. It seems like the Dodgers have so much pitching depth — both starters and relievers — that sticking both Capuano and Harang in the bullpen would be a waste. Some team will surely give up a prospect for one of those guys. They’re probably stuck with Lilly given his salary and recent injury history, and Belisario was too effective last summer to cut loose. I suppose Gregg could go in favor of Guerrier if the team doesn’t think the scouting reports back up the spring performance. Something has to give, though. Los Angeles simply has too many arms for too few spots right now.

David Price loves his Rays and his beard (but is he serious?)

content_img

(USATSI)

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — There’s no way was serious.

Or maybe he was.

There’s no way Price would rule out signing with the Yankees simply because he might need to shave off his beard.

Or maybe he would.

There’s a real chance it won’t matter, anyway. While there’s no chance that the low-budget Rays will sign Price to a long-term contract, it’s veelino.The Sun says the Gunners board are drawing up a list of potential targets to replace Unai Emery after swinging the axe yesterday.One name on the shortlist is 54-year-old Marcelino who was dismissed from Valencia in September.The Spaniard achievry likely that they’ll trade him next winter to a team that can (and will).

It may well be that Pilson is dead against the VAR coming to the Premier League.Wilson was denied a goal in England’s shootout win over Nations League opponents Switzerland.Wilson told Sky Sports: “Obviously I’m disappointed not to score the winner. It’s going to be likerice has little more chance of reaching free agency (he’d be eligible after the 2015 season) than Justin Verlander or Clayton Kershaw do.

Still, there will be a time when Price has more of a choice as to where he plays. So would he really eliminate the Yankees based on their rules against facial hair?

Price tried to do some damage control on Thursday morning, calling the Yankees “the best organization in baseball” and saying anything could happen by the time he becomes a free agent.

More on Spring TrainingRelated linksMore coverage | | |

“That’s three years down the road,” he said. “My hair might fall out by then.”

But a day after to Jon Paul Morosi of Foxsports.com created something of a Twitter and talk-radio firestorm (“I’m hearing the most hateful things,” Price said), what was perhaps most interesting is that Price didn’t really back down.

He didn’t deny saying it. He didn’t deny meaning it.

“I love this thing,” he said, running his fingers across his beard. “It’s not [coming off]. It’s a part of me.”

What’s more, when he started talking about the Yankees, he quickly mentioned that he had never really been a Yankee fan growing up.

“I never ests no formal offer has yet been fielded for their €222m star.Leonardo said, “We have not received any offers. But we had, it’s true, very superficial contacts … With FC Barcelona? Yes.”If Neymar has expressed his desires for departure? It’s cleanvisioned myself in pinstripes,” he said, pointing out that while growing up in Tennessee, the Braves and Cubs were the teams that he saw most on television. “They’re a great organization, but I never aspired to be a New York Yankee.”

Look, we’ve all seen how money can change a player’s visions and aspirations (and facial hair). It would be silly to say there’s no way that Price would ever end up with the Yankees, facial-hair regulations or no regulations (and who knows if someday those rules would change).

But here’s why this episode is worth more than just a passing mention:

Unlike Felix Hernandez, he hasn’t signed a long-term deal. Unlike Verlander and Kershaw, he’s unlikely to get it from the team he’s with.

As long as he’s a Ray, deep-pocket teams like the Yankees can dream that Price will be free agent in three years.

For now, Price is saying that those deep pockets won’t be enough to sway him.

“It’s about being comfortable where you play,” he said. “The last thing I want to think is that I’m signing a long-term deal — regardless of the money — and not having the feeling I have here.”

Price knows that making his beard/Yankees feelings public probably wasn’t the best move. He knows why his agent, Bo McKinnis, called him after the story came out (which is why he didn’t return the call).

He also said, “I can’t rule out anybody.”

He’s just prefer a team like the Rays, where manager Joe Maddon’s dress code is simple: “As long as you think you look hot.”

“Beards, earrings, tattoos, we like it all,” Maddon said. We definitely promote individualism around here.”

Price loves it. He’ll love it, for one more season, until the Rays trade him.

“I have my beard for at least another year,” he said

So he would shave it off to go to the Yankees?

No, he didn’t say that. Not at all.

Is he serious?

We might not know for another three years — if then.

Jeremy Affeldt one of many postseason heroes for Giants

DETROIT — One of the many unsung heroes in the Giants’ World Series sweep of the Tigers is left-handed reliever Jeremy Affeldt. Not only did the veteran work 1 2/3 all-important innings in the 4-3, 10-inning Game 4 Giants win, but he sliced through the middle of the Tigers’ powerful offense in one of the most pivotal parts of Game 4.

With the scored tied, Affeldt walked Avisail Garcia to start the eighth inning. Evidently he just wanted to challenge himself, because Affeldt proceeded to strike out triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera … then elite power hitter Prince Fielder … then postseason home-run machine Delmon Young. Affeldt then opened the ninth inning by striking out Andy Dirks. He’d get a flyout off the bat of Jhonny Peralta before departing.

Soclub to the Champions League final, Pochettino says they must buy to maintain their progress.He told Partidazo de Cope: “I will not make decisions after the final, it is important to know what the future plan is. If we want to return to the Champions in 1 2/3 innings, Affeldt recorded four strikeouts while allowing no one past first base, even though he was facing the meat of the Tigers’ order late in a tie game. Still, the back-to-back-to-back K’s of Cabrera, Fielder and Young were most impressive.

The overall result wasn’t altogether shocking, considering how hot Affeldt has been of late. During the postseason, he threw 10 1/3 innings, allowing only five hits, three walks (one was intentional) and nary an earned run. He struck out 10.

The funny thing is, Affeldt did it all through yet another weird injury. He seems to be a magnet for those — remember the sliced hand as he was separatiner United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Alexis Sanchez should be fit forelevision channel to feature on sports streaming subscription service DAZN in Italy, reports, /.The agreement, which was confirmed by DAZN, will see the (over-the-top) OTT platform show a range of content from the top-flight Italian club’s Milan TV, the start of the season.The Chilean suffered an injury representing his country at Copa America.Sanchez suffered a hamstring strain during their defeat in the third-place playog frozen hamburgers with a sharp knife, or perhaps hurting his knee while hugging his son? Then, in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Reds, a hard foul ball into the Giants’ dugout sent Affeldt to the ground to avoid being struck, bracing himself with his left hand and jamming it. And yet, he still continued to thrive in the postseason.

“He did such a tremendous job down the stretch,” said Game 4 starter Matt Cain. “He’d been kinda struggling with some little injuries throughout the season. It was kinda odd, it seemed like him getting oddly hurt in Cincinnati kind of benefitted him a little bit.”

And while Affeldt was good before the injury, Cain is kind of right. Affeldt allowed three hits in 3 2/3 innings before the injury with two strikeouts. After, he only gave up two hits in 6 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts. Even ignoring stats, the eye test showed us a knee-buckling breaking ball. Cain agreed.

“He went out there with unbelievable stuff with the sinker/slider combo.”

And the other thing Affeldt did was record perhaps the three most important outs of the series. So when praising the likes of Pablo Sandoval, Marco Scutaro, Sergio Romo, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Brandon Crawford, Gregor Blanco, Hunter Pence, Buster Posey, Barry Zito, Madison Bumgarner, Bruce Bochy and, well, pretty much the entire team, do not forget about Affeldt. He was integral.

Alex Rodriguez in lineup for ALCS Game 1

Straight from the big board at Yankee Stadium … 

NEW YORK: , as you can see, is in the lineup despite the fact that Tigers starter is a right-hander. A-Rod, of course, struggled badly against the Orioles in the ALDS and manager Joe Girardi has shown a recent willingness to limit him to platoon-advantaged duties. But there he is, with a fresh series start and all that.

It is worth noting, however, that Rodriguez will be batting in the six hole for the first time in quite a while. In the regular season, he hasn’t batted sixth since he was 19 years old.

Andrew Bailey to disabled list?

Possible bad news in : Closer might be forced to , reports WEEI’s Alex Speier. When asked about fresh injury concerns within the bullpen, manager Bobby Valentine’s response was, well, beautifully cryptic: “If I add to that the way I should answer it,” Valentine said, “you’ll be confused because you don’t have all the information, and I don’t know that I can give you all the information. The answer is yes. Don’t be confused by that answer. There might be a health situation.” Got that?In any event, Bailey’s uncertain status has cascaded through the rest of the Boston roster. Valentine acknowledged that the situation with his closer played a role in to the bullpen to start the season. Beyond that, Valentine might also be prompted to go with a 13-man staff in the early going. Earlier in the spring, Bailey battled a lat injury and has been limited to just 6.0 innings of Grapefruit League play. While Bailey’s status and timetable aren’t yet known, it’s possible that, if he does go on the DL retroactively, he’ll be able to return by April 10. If healthy, Bailey is potentially the equal of the departed Jonathan Papelbon, which is another way of saying he’s a true “shutdown” closer. On the other hand, Bailey does hhis style of play.The now retired Bulgarian was always a polarising figure among fans of the club, as some felt his style was too lazy compared to forwards Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney.But Berbatov considers himself “an artist on the pitch” and had ave a bit of an injury history.

Since Bailey’s alleged thumb soreness is on his throwing hand, it’s likely making it difficult for him to grip the ball properly. At least, however, it’s not an elbow or shoulder issue.In any event, it’s possible that Aceves will receive the save opps in Bailey’s absence, should there even be an absence of Bailey.
