AAA - Brantly, Flynn, Dyson

 

AA - Heaney, Olmos

 

Reassigned to Minor League Camp - Wittgren, Evans, Leverton, Nappo, Conley, Spence, Varner, Barnes, Black, Canha, Moran, Benson

 

39 total left in camp, 14 more cuts to go barring injuries.

 

...Brantly should be happy with his spring numbers, makes him a better option whenever we need a third catcher this year. If he keeps it up in New Orleans he clearly extends his chances in this organization.

Nothing special on 2nd cuts.

 

Btw, Is there anybody worried about lack of offense?

Jones, Ozuna, Salty, Furcal, Hech and Bogusevic... they are still under .200.

Is this the first official "Are we worried" of the season :)

Glad to see Heaney in Jax, maybe I'll have a chance to see him before he heads up to the big team

Anyone worried about Hech being under .200 probably worries why the sun is still shining.

 

"Dude, I'm pretty sure that sun's been shining since I woke up. Is that supposed to be like that?"

 

"Um, I dunno, didn't it do that yesterday though?"

 

"Hmmm..."

I like both really, Koehler has shown he should stick around.

 

Always liked Brad Hand's ability to miss bats, but he's started to show some signs of getting his control together too. So far this spring 12 IP with 15k/2bb. Sample size but good sign. The short outings of spring probably go along with the decent work he did out of the pen late last season... so ultimately the pen might suit him best.

 

I've been ready to write off Hand a few times with his control issues, good to see him still hanging in there.

Well, here's my expert analysis based on years and years of scouting:

 

Jones is bad.

Ozuna is in a slump

Salty will never hit for average unless he manages a BABIP near .400 again.

Hech is the worst player in baseball with a starting job.

Bogusevic is bad.

Yea, right now it looks to me like Hand has stolen Jennings' job right out from under him as that second LHP in the pen, because Koehler is definitely in the rotation.

More likely that Hand will be in the rotation and Koehler will be the long man in the pen since he showed effectiveness in that role.

 

I disagree. As good as Hand has been, Koehler has been starting all spring, has dominated and also dominated in September. The fact that he is the incumbent should be the tie breaker. Hand came into this spring as a dark horse, Koehler came in as the favorite. Hand really hasn't out performed Koehler, I don't see how he can turn those tables.
