Roch: Spring Training is next week

Recommended Posts



Competitions will break out on the back fields and during Grapefruit League games. The rotation and bullpens aren’t settled. A 26-man roster increases the bench options.

Who’s going to play the outfield beyond Anthony Santander, Austin Hays and Trey Mancini? Who’s going to be kept as utility players from a group that includes Richard Ureña and Pat Valaika, but also could be fattened if Stevie Wilkerson stays in the organization?

Wilkerson can play just about anywhere, but shortstop isn’t one of his strengths and it’s pushed him below the others.

Pedro Severino and Chance Sisco are the favorites to again share the catching position, but the latter will be pressured by a group of candidates that include Austin Wynns and non-roster players Bryan Holaday and Taylor Davis.

There’s also the possibility of someone else popping up on the waiver wire, as Severino did last March. He showed up late and won a job.

Adley Rutschman and Martin Cervenka will be in Sarasota, but they’ll eventually head over to Twin Lakes Park. Only one of them is going to attract crowds.

Mostly terrible hats. The Orioles is the worst of the bunch (along with the similarly themed Padres and White Sox), trying to cram two logos on top really doesn't work for most of the hats.

I really like the Blue Jays hat though. The Rays hat is pretty nice too.

Yeah the Blue Jays hat is sharp. Most of the rest terrible. Particularly the O's. They could have gone in so many better directions with it...
