UPDATE: Matt Harvey gave all of his fans and the club a big scare yesterday,and we now know it was a blood clot in his bladder.  So far everyone is saying he will be fine to go on Sunday in Kansas City for the opener, however that may be pushing it. Harvey will throw a couple of innings at Spring Training today and see how he feels.

Two years ago,  New York Mets right-handed pitcher, Matt Harvey, was sidelined after tearing his UCL. This injury required Tommy John Surgery, which sidelined Harvey for over a year. After returning from Tommy John Surgery, Matt Harvey had a great 2015 season in which he threw 189.1 innings with a 13-8 record, 2.71 ERA, 188 strikeouts, and 37 walks.

Through his short 2.5 year career, he has posted some incredibly good numbers that include a 2.53 ERA and 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings. So far this spring training, he has thrown 10 innings with a 6.30 ERA, seven strikeouts, and eight walks. His inflated ERA comes from his last start against the Houston Astros in which he gave up six runs, seven hits, and four walks over three innings of work.

The post from yesterday..

Whenever medical concerns surface about the New York Mets right-hander, many baseball fans and fantasy owners cringe. To read the rest of the article, click the link below:

Odds To Win The American League Rookie Of The Year

The American League has some young talent, however about only half of the guys on this list will even break camp with their parent big clubs,and others will be blocked for various reasons -including against each other on their own squads. There is really only one good bet and one bad for entire 15 guy list.

1st off the Twins have the top 3 players listed for the category in Buxton, Ho-Park and Berrios.

All Minnesota youngsters could make the squad, although Buxton is posting just a .567 OPS  in Spring Training –  after only putting up a .576 OPS in his 129 AB for 2015. He will be given the starting job to either make it or not, after the trade of Aaron Hicks.  Don’t like the favorite status for most of these categories, this will ring true one more time.

Ho-Park has looked solid at the dish so far with a 3 Slash of .283/.306/.543 – with 3 HRs and 13 RBI in his 46 AB, and at 29 years of age – coming over from the KBO, he has years of experience next to his classmates.

Jose Abreu and Ichiro Suzuki both came over as later in life rookies to the Junior Circuit and took the honors  Ho-Park was a beast in Korea – blasting over 50+ HRs in each of the last 2 years there for his club team Nexen.

While you have to temper expectations coming overseas to North America from there, what I love is that the guy improved his numbers in each of the last 5 years.  This bodes well for him in Minny.

With a 4 year deal in his back pocket, Park will and should remain on the big roster based on his early success.

I am not sure he will win the Award, and I am not placing any cabbage on him too, but at least he won’t be subjected to service time restrictions like other rookies. Read the rest of this entry

With less than a week away from Opening Day of the 2016 season, it’s time to look at who’s performing in the preseason.

Spring Training results aren’t entirely indicative of regular season results, but it does feel good when you know your players are producing very well as we get closer to the start of the season.

The first division we’ll look at is the AL Central!

Dodgers Closing In On 2016 Roster

Who will make the 2016 Dodgers Opening Day Roster

As the Dodgers are getting ready to break camp on Wednesday and head home to begin the annual Freeway Series with the Angels, it is a perfect time to speculate on the final 25-man roster.

Team officials are surely losing sleep over all of the injuries the team has endured throughout spring training and are crossing fingers the blood-letting is over. The 14-car pile-up that is the Dodgers current injury list (yes, that many) could make for some interesting roster decisions.

 

Starting Pitching Staff (5 spots)

One through four is an easy call with ace Clayton Kershaw (great spring, raring to go as usual) leading the way, followed by Scott Kazmir (luckily his abdominal issue turned out only to be a dehydration cramp the other day), then a very solid looking Kenta Maeda, an ever-improving Alex Wood, followed by, drum roll, please…the insert-a-new-name-every-five-days-guy.

I am only half-kidding. Due to injuries to #5 frontrunners, Mike Bolsinger (left oblique), and Brandon Beachy (left arm soreness), and no clearcut winner for the job between Carlos Frias and Zach Lee, it looks like we will get a combination of the two depending upon match-ups.

Then when Bolsinger and Beachy are ready, they, too, will probably join the #5 parade. This sounds a lot like last year’s “drive to find number five,” which was pretty much a disaster…

2016 Seasonal/Re-Draft Fantasy Baseball Rankings (Positional and Overall)

Buster Posey just continues to be a masterful hitter at the Catchers position.  A lifetime 3 slash of .310/.375/.484 and 3 Silver Sluggers out of the last 4 seasons.  He also has appeared in at least 147 Games over the last four campaigns.  How long will San Francisco have him as a Backstopper.  There is no doubt the club presents its best chance to win when he is behind the plate, with Belt at 1B and a Left Fielder that has better numbers than what the Backup Catcher has had in San Francisco.
