#1 The former Nationals closer missed all of last season. von zhangzk 31.05.2019 03:14

Royals General Manager Dayton Moore said last fall he wanted to look for bargains in the reliever market to fill out a bullpen very much in flux. Having already signed veteran Brad Boxberger to a one-year deal Charlie Morton Jersey , and taking a flyer on a minor league deal with Homer Bailey, Moore could be setting his sights on former Nationals closer Drew Storen. According to reporter Jayson Stark, the 31-year old right-hander is “on the radar” for the Royals.Storen missed the entire 2018 season following Tommy John surgery. The former first-round pick out of Stanford spent the first six years of his Major League career in the Nationals bullpen, collecting 43 saves in 2011, just his second season. He had a 3.02 ERA and a 3.09 FIP with the Nationals, striking out nearly a hitter per-inning, and was a 2.5 rWAR pitcher as recently as 2014. He broke his thumb slamming a locker door in disgust, prematurely ending his 2015 season. That led to a trade to the Blue Jays, where Storen struggled, leading to a trade to the Mariners. In 2017 http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , he signed a one-year deal with the Reds, posting a 4.45 ERA and a 4.88 FIP with 48 strikeouts in 54 2鈦? innings. Storen’s velocity in 2017 was down significantly from the mid-90s he threw during his prime, with a much less effective slider. He was shut down that year in September leading to surgery. He resumed throwing last fall to throw for teams. In addition to the Royals, the Cubs were recently said to be interested in him.Stark adds the Royals continue to look for “bargain bullpen options” and even as spring training opens this week for most clubs, there remains dozens of pitchers still unsigned.

I’m in New Jersey for the weekend, so I’ve got a greater appreciation for his, and others, sacrifice of sleep throughout the season. Although I’d likely have more energy had my flight not been delayed five hours.Arizona Diamondbacks News[D’backs.com] D-backs counting on Ray to return to form- Robbie Ray is tied for 2nd among all MLB pitchers in strikeouts this Spring at 32. The leader is Max Scherzer with 34 K’s Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey , but he has tossed 10 more innings than Ray. Arizona will need him to continue to miss bats, and pitch deep into games, to compensate for the loss of Patrick Corbin’s contributions in 2018.[AZ Central] As MLB draft bounty awaits, Arizona Diamondbacks’ scouts search for gems - [Mark] Ross is the Diamondbacks’ area scout for the four-corners region of the country. He is part of what Assistant General Manager Amiel Sawdaye refers to as the club’s first line of defense. In many ways, the weight of the future of the organization hangs on his shoulders, a burden spread among more than 25 full-time scouts and supervisors the club has bouncing around the country this spring. The Diamondbacks have before them a substantial opportunity this year. They have eight of the first 93 picks. They are expected to have more than $15 million to spend in bonus money, likely the second-highest total ever. Perhaps no team in the bonus pool era has had this combination of premium picks — they’ll pick four times in the Top 34 — and have deep pockets.[Arizona Sports] As spring comes to an end, everything ‘clicking’ for D-backs’ Robbie Ray - [D’backs.com] Greinke pitches in ‘B’ game, weighs cutting hair - D-backs right-hander Zack Greinke got in his final tuneup before his Opening Day start by pitching in a back-field game against Minor Leaguers in the Rockies’ organization Saturday afternoon. Greinke threw 92 pitches over 6 1/3 innings, and also made four plate appearances. One reason Greinke started in a “B” game was so that the team could control his outing Nolan Ryan Jersey , but another was so that the Giants, who the D-backs were playing at Scottsdale Stadium, would not get an extra look at him before the regular season. [AZ Central] Arizona Diamondbacks’ prospects entering critical, data-driven season - Every morning, Diamondbacks minor leaguers fan out on the backfields at Salt River Fields and start to provide hints of what they might become. And the club’s player development system — a sprawling web of coaches, executives, trainers and data — is there to help them. This could be a landmark year for Diamondbacks prospects. Many of those whose futures appear most promising will play at a full-season level for the first time. If they show they belong, it could go a long way toward opening up a new window of contention.Around the League[CBS Sports] Justin Verlander, Astros reportedly agree to record-breaking contract extension - The Houston Astros and ace Justin Verlander have agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $66 million. Mark Berman of Fox 26 was first to report a deal was done, and multiple reporters have since confirmed. The deal reportedly includes no deferred money http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , which helps make this a record contract in terms of average annual value (i.e., annual salary).[MLB Trade Rumors] Scooter Gennett To Spend 8-12 Weeks On Injured List - Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett will be sidelined for the next 8-12 weeks due to a right groin strain, Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports (Twitter link). Gennett suffered the injury yesterday during the second inning of the Reds’ Spring Training game, while making an awkward slide on a fielding play.
