Led by Red Sox’s Bradley Jr., players making big progress this spring

BRADENTON, Fla. – Jackie Bradley Jr. was a non-roster prospect when he got to camp, albeit a very good non-roster prospect, with what was said to be absolutely no chance to make the Red Sox team.

Now, at least, he’s in the conversation.

starting the year on the disabled list (foot) is one factor improving Bradley’s chances. But the bigger factor is the center fielder’s play, which has been nothing short of spectacular.

“I’m just trying to be a tough out, to work the counts and make the pitcher throw a lot of pitches,” the friendly, easygoing Bradley said here Monday after going one for three with a walk.

Red Sox people, who earlier were saying “no chance” to start the season in the majors, now are at least thinking about it. He is batting .436 with a .556 on-base percentage, and looking good against major-league pitching.

“I don’t see how he couldn’t be on the team? He’s been their best player all spring,” one American League scout said. (He suggests Bradley in left, with Jonny Gomez as the DH.)

“He’s their second best outfielder,’’ another scout said, meaning behind only

Lack of experience (271 total at-bats as high as Double-A) remains the issue. But it sounds like Red Sox manager John Farrell is at least thinking about it.

“For a young kid, he’s pretty polished,” Farrell said. “He has a consistent approach at the plate, and defensively, he’s very good.”

Farrell, asked directly about whether Bradley will make the team, said, “We have 10 days for [the situation] to come to a head.”

Bradley was asked if he thought he had a chance. ‘I don’t know,” he said. “I’m here. And I’m enjoying it while I’m here. I’m excited to be able to play baseball … at the next level.”

Bradley, who played in college at South Carolina and is only 22, has impressed the club with his serious approach. That goes for even the way he shags flies. His routes are impeccable, in practice and in games.

But with only a few months of experience at Double-A, management wasn’t expecting the left-handed hitter to hit like this. 

Farrell said, “He’s hit good pitching, and he’s hit left-handed pitching.”

And he might make the team, out of left field.

Here’s the complete list:

After some fits and starts, he looks like the major power threat again. The tried to pry him for Alfonso Soriano this winter. No way is that happening now. “If he carries this over, he’s every bit the player they thought he was,” one scout said.

The stat guys who love him may see him rise to star status this year. Looked terrific in Giants camp, as he’s finally turning on more balls. Has four homers, 11 RBI and a .404 batting average.

He’s been sent down but he was so impressive in spring scouts were suggesting he might even be a better choice as the fifth starter than the Cardinals’ two very good candidates, and . He has hit 97 mph and has a dynamic change-up and better breaking ball than advertised. said he showed three above average pitches. “Plus, he’s a good kid,” Holliday said. Looks like the Cardinals hit the jackpot with the big right-hander outo the team before the end of this season.Klose was feared to have missed the entire campaign due to a knee injury that he suffered at the start of the season.But the 31-year-old has a chance of being back before the run in, which would greatly improv of Texas A&M, their first-round pick in 2012.

Like Wacha, he as a first-rounder in the 2012 draft, so he has only 15 professional innings under his belt. And like Wacha, he looks like a star in the making. “Electric” one scout says of his stuff. He is throwing in the mid-to-high 90s, and his breaking ball was getting better reviews than at LSU. Also, he throws across his body a bit like , so the ball is hard for batters to pick up. “With him and Dylan Bundy [the first-rounder the year before], they are going to be tough for years,’”one scout said.

He was throwing 97 to 98 mph and wowing them on the west coast of Florida. Rubby De La Rosa, the other prospects received in the big deal with the , is also getting good reviews. “That’s one heck of a trade,” noted a scout. Not to mention the fact they excised $260 million in player salaries.

He looks primed to make the jump from Double-A to replace (and ) in center field. He had a three-homer game that drew attention, but within that game, what really impressed folks was a single on a tough pitch in his last at-bat. will make the team, but only as a backup.

He’s squaring up almost everything. He has three homers, 11 RBI and a .310 batting average. He’ll probably squeeze onto a stacked Cardinals roster, but the , for one, could really use him. The lefty swinger would be a monster power source at Yankee Stadium.

He’s made the transition seamlessly, from third base to second, and should give the Padres needed extra offense.

The former No. 1 overall pick was sent out today, much to his disappointment. “He’s awesome,” catcher said. “He’s a smart kid who makes adjustments and is unafraid. He has a power fastball and a power changeup. He has a slider that’s in the works, and a curve in the works. He really fills up the strike zone.” He was throwing 92 to 96 and occasionally touching 97. “Good stuff,’’ one scout summarized. He’ll be in the majors sometime soon.

He’s being tried in the No. 2 hole, between superstars and , and he seems to be enjoying it. Batting .500 exactly (20 for 40). Two words of small caution: Nobody has better hitting conditions (in Tempe, and between Trout and Pujols), and he has a history of big spring.

Some scoffed when the Dodgers gave this rarely-seen Cuban $42 million. But it looks like it might be a steal along the lines of the deal ($36 million, four years) now. Hitting .452 over at Camelback Ranch with Dodgers.

He was sent out after a homer streak. Has to be one of the very best prospects in baseball. Cubs are stacked at shortstop.

Good thing they made room for this guy. He’s going to give the D-Backs a great speed dimension, though his one negative this spring is being thrown out on four of six steal attempts. Batting .458. He’s been “even better” than his stats raves a D-backs official.

The highly-touted LSU product is “finally healthy and made some adjustments with his setup.” Looks ready for the prime time. Hitting .387 in the desert. Another Sox outfield prospect Trayce Thompson, son of basketballer Mychal Thompson, is a great defender with an “improving bat.”

The free swinger is batting .359 as he tries to lock down the center-field job. Even better, he has five walks and a .422 on-base percentage.

Miami has three terrific minor-leaguer outfielders, including also Jake Marisnick (5 of 11 before suffering a broken hand being hit by a pitch) and Marcell Osuna, and if they’re all in the same outfield that’d be something. Yelich hit up a storm in Jupiter.

He had a huge spring, and appears to be a slight favorite to win the 2B job over . He looked serviceable defensively but the real selling point is that he should hit a ton for a second baseman.  Hitting .410 this spring.

Looks like the money ($75.2 million, five years) hasn’t gone to his head. He and his brother Justin are thriving together in Braves camp so far. Especially Justin, who’s hitting .408.

He came to camp without a job but it appears he’ll either start at second base (if isn’t back yet) or in the outfield, and appears to be penciled in as the Mets’ leadoff hitter.  He’s shown big power in spring.

Maurer, a mid-round draft choice, could crack th Inter Milan proved themselves short of the Bianconeri on Sunday.Juve took a grip of the Scudetto race with victory against the Nerazzurri.“Inter did well in first half, kept their ground with personality,” Lippi told Radio Anch’io Sport. “But the rotation. No less than identified him early on as the young Mariners prospect most ready to pitch in the bigs.

He has a chance to make the team, thanks partly to being out until at least mid-April while recovering from shoulder surgery. He’s hitting .378 and has big-time pop. A great story, he was out of the game a couple years. Ready to emerge.

Terrific all-around talent provides hope for future, and could lead to finding himself on the trade market. “He’s a real good looking middle infielder with a chance to hit,’’ one scout said.

He’s 15 for 39, and better still, with only five strikeouts. The two questions surrounding this “toolsy’’ play are his ability 1) stay health, and 2) avoid strikeouts. So far he’s doing both.

 A terrific defender, he’s hitting up a storm in the desert. Took a step back last year, but now looks ready to bloom. He’s slowed a bit after a hot start but still has a 1.069 OPS.

He’s banging the ball so well he was considered to be added to Team USA. Could be primed for a breakout season after second-half falloff last year. Hitting .415.

The lefty hitter is wowing scouts in Cardinals camp. They don’t need him … yet, anyway.

If he’s on the trading block, somebody better pony up quite a bit. He has 18 strikeouts and only two walks.

He’ll get the Opening Day start due to ’s slow spring, but he earned it. He’s 1-0 with a 0.71 ERA and a nice changeup has complemented his bread-and-butter curveball.

 Highton & Hove Albion.The 22-year-old joins the League One side on a one-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.Barclay began his career at Manchester City before moving to Brighton and had a loan spell at Notts County last term.”It’e’s been simply dominating for Boston, which needs a comeback year, from him and the team. He’s 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA. is 2-0 with a 0.00 after an early hamstring strain.

 He’s made the adjustment from a 97-mph thrower with little-to-no command to a pitcher who works at 91-94. Has 25 Ks and just six walks in 20 innings.

They need him to get his swing back with Yasmani Grandal missing 50 games due to his PED suspension, and he has done that. Batting .457 in Peoria.

 Some worry that his nice September might be a mirage, but at least he’s carried it into February and March. The Mariners having been hitting like crazy in Arizona. (Trade pickup has five homers.)

 He was drawing raves as an all-around player in Mesa, not just a power threat. The Cubs are doing a nice job building for the future.

 Kansas City has looked very good this spring, and Gordon is one reason. His big second half suggests he may be ready to become a bona fide star. Like Kendrick, he’s 20 for 40 this spring.

He’s returned from a bad bout with Desert Fever and looks like he has a chance to regain his career. Has chance to make team. Nice story. (Last year’s nice story, Lew Ford, is hitting .483 this spring.)

Big arm. He impressed scouts early but had a rough one late. “Not quite ready,’’ said a scout.

 He looks ready to break out. Could be a nice year in K.C.

 No surprise, the Rays’ young pitchers look good. Cobb has 23 strikeouts and just two walks. Chris Archer was shipped out with a 0.00 ERA.

The two second-year players are showing no signs of letting up. Trout looks like he might duplicate what he did last year (.408 this spring), and Harper should take a big step forward. He’s hitting a point higher at .409 with three homers and eight RBI.

Cubs agree to sign Kyuji Fujikawa for two years, $9.5M

The are in agreement to sign Japanese closer Kyuji Fujikawa for two years and $9.5 million,yad Mahrez this summer.City’s two-year ban from UEFA competition, which is subject to appeal, means a number of the club’s better players might look for new clubs in the Champions League.And one of those players is said to be Mahrez, according to Cal reports CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. Fujikawa also has the chance to earn an extra $2 million per year in performance bonuses.

Fujikawa, a 32-year-old right-hander, had 24 saves with a 1.32 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings last season for the Hanshin Tigers in Nippon Professional Baseball.

In a six-season career for Hanshin, Fujikawa amassed 202 saves with a 1.36 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 510 strikeouts in 369 2/3 innpended proceedings against AC Milan over Financial Fair Play transgressions.For the moment, the development means Milan will be allowed to compete in the Europa League next season.“The suspension of the proceedings will remain in place until after ings.

Giancarlo Stanton still unhappy with Marlins

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Remember when the traded several of their productive players to the Blue Jays in a remarkable salary slash last month? Of course, you do. But do you remember the reactim Molineux as he joins Shrewsbury Town following 11 years at Wolves.The stopper first joined the club at the age of 12 after being spotted between the sticks for his local side Ludlow Town, before progressing td to leave this summer, it has been revealed.The Argentina international is a target for Atletico Madrid with Lucas Hernandez and Diego Godin both departing this summer.However, Fichajes.com reports agents for Otamendi has also been offered to Real Mhrough the ranks at Wolves Academy.Afteron of Marlins slugger ? If not, here you go:

Alright, I’m pisLeganes are waiting for Watford to make a decision over Marc Navarro.The Spanish fullback is a target for the LaLiga outfit, which is willing to take him on-loan.AS says Leganes expects an answer from the Hornets next week.Navarro has already agreed personal terms with Leganes and is eager to make the move.Watford boss Javi Gracia is expected to green light the move in the coming days.sed off!!! Plain & Simple

— Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818)

Well, not much has changed, according to Stanton’s agent, Joel Wolfe (via CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman). On that tweet in particular, Wolfe told Heyman, “It wasn’t a reaction. It was a state of mind.”

Wolfe wouldn’t say if Stanton has requested a trade from Miami. But, needless to say, the young star is not pleased with the situation.

Stanton, 23, hit .290/.361/.608 with 37 homers and 86 RBI in only 123 games. Had he not missed several weeks after knee surgery, it would have been a pretty good bet that Stanton would have led the NL in home runs.

Oh, and if the Marlins choose to keep him, Stanton doesn’t have much say in the matter. He won’t be a free agent until 2017.
