Now featuring Rob Refsnyder Jersey , Ketel Marte..." since I’ve now got to keep up with the Gameday Threads and recaps! - covers the outfield. There’ll be some changes there for the Diamondbacks, who have to replace almost 220 starts, with the main departees being A.J. Pollock (105 starts), Jon Jay (62) and Chris Owings (46). Some of that slack should be taken up by a hopefully healthy Steven Souza Jr. and Jarrod Dyson. Though it was announced today that the latter will be getting an MRI after experiencing what Torey Lovullo called, “a little bit of discomfort in his midsection.” Lovullo said it’s not related to the injury that cost him much of the second half last year, but I’ll be happier when I see him gamboling round the outfield. Souza, too, missed a significant amount of time in 2018, though going by the three-run homer he cracked in the opening game of Cactus League play, there’s no health issues there. He will be leaned upon for significantly better production: his OPS+ last year was only 77, compared to a career figure of 105 up to that point. Something closer to the latter would be very helpful. Driving the engine-room in the outfield, however, will be David Peralta, who started 137 games last year, and responded with a 30-homer season. That was a number not surpassed by any Diamondbacks left-fielder, since Luis Gonzalez had 57 in 2001. [Jason Kubel also had thirty in 2012]Going by today’s spring training outing , the Ketel Marte switch to centerfield, is actually going to be a thing, not something you dreamed about over the long, dark winter. We’ve seen this kind of switch quite recently in Arizona, when Chris Owings went from middle-infielder to Opening Day 2016 starter at center, in about 72 hours. That worked out... okay. I was a bit surprised to see that Owings has a career positive UZR at all three outfield spots and is +6.4 in UZR/150 overall. However, the metrics are split, with Total Zone’s Fielding Runs Above Average much less impressed by his defense. It’s going to be a process, but given the dearth of alternatives who don’t swing tooth-picks, it’s probably worth a shot.There will probably be plenty of at-bats to go around there though, since it seems that Marte will be expected to play at other positions as well. It’s not clear whether the team will carry four or five outfielders. Presuming the roster includes three catchers, we may end up with only four “true” outfielders, and Marte in addition being used as a defensive swing-man, moving back and forth between the two zones as necessary. Right now, the other four would appear to be locks for Peralta and Souza, but the other two spots are uncertain. Health permitting, Dyson and Socrates Brito are likely favorites: but having both would leave us with Souza the only right-handed outfield bat (Marte is a switch-hitter). Maybe that opens the door for Tim Locastro , the only other outfielder on the 40-man roster? Of course, there’s also DC’s favorite, Yasmany Tomas, who will be the highest-paid position player on the Diamondbacks this year, despite not even being on the 40-man roster at this point. However, his best bet at making the roster could be at first base. If you’d told me two years ago that Marte would be our Opening Day CF and Tomas is potentially in the mix as an everyday first baseman...Anyway, including both men, as well as the rest of the 40-man roster, and the non-roster invitees in spring training, here are the potential candidates for the 2019 Diamondbacks outfield.

This is to be based purely on player quality, without taking into account options, etc. We’ll get round to that, where relevant, when we discuss who WILL be on the roster, later in the week. For now, this is strictly a question of who SHOULD be there. Take the pollWe’ll have the results on Wednesday Christian Arroyo Jersey , and feel free to explain yourself in the comments. PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Pete Alonso is hitting .406 at spring training and leads the Mets with three home runs. Yet, if New York keeps him in the minor leagues for the first 15 days of the season, his eligibility for free agency would be pushed back a year until after the 2025 season.“Seeing what players are going through where their service time is being manipulated, on the front end and/or in the middle, is a concern, has been a concern and will continue to be a concern,” union head Tony Clark said after meeting with the Mets.Alonso nearly homered again Wednesday, but wind knocked down his fourth-inning drive off Houston’s Gerrit Cole. Alonso had 36 homers and 119 RBIs at Double-A and Triple-A last season.“What I wanted to do at the beginning of camp was just force their hands,” the Tampa native said. “I wanted to work as hard as I could every single day and play as well as I possibly could. I want them to be able to make that decision easily based off my performance. With my expectations of myself, I’m happy with how I’m playing right now.”Clark, a former All-Star first baseman and a former Met, hopes Alonso starts the season in the major leagues.“I hope that Pete continues to do what Pete has always done, and I hope that he does have opportunity to break (with) the squad as a result of the production that he’s authored in spring training,” Clark said.Kris Bryant was brought up by the Chicago Cubs in 2015 when he was left one day short of being eligible for free agency after the 2020 season. The players’ association filed a grievance, but the case has not been tried.Teams say they have a complete right to decide when players are ready for the major leagues.“We believe it’s hurting the industry,” Clark said. “Being able to say that you have the best players on the field at all times is something you’d like to be able to say. In the current climate Nathan Eovaldi Jersey , you can’t say that.”New Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, a former agent, has stated New York needs to carry its best 25 players to Washington for the March 28 opener.“One game in April is the same as one game in September,” Clark said. “It can make the difference in whether you’re shaking hands in October and being excited about the postseason or you’re not.”NOTES: INFs Jed Lowrie (knee discomfort) and Todd Frazier (oblique strain) are participating in light baseball activities, but neither has played in a game. “When we get this right, it’ll be because I’ll be ready to play every day,” said Lowrie, who isn’t running yet. Added Frazier, who has finished the second part of his rehab and awaits the next: “If I start thinking ahead I’ll get anxious and some bad things might happen, but we’re getting back on track a little bit.” … RHP Noah Syndergaard made his fourth start and worked five-plus scoreless innings in a 2-1 win over the Astros, allowing two hits. … Manager Mickey Callaway has been impressed with lefty reliever Luis Avilan, who has a 2.25 ERA and has been more difficult on right-handed batters than lefties. “The changeup is filthy. He might be our best reliever against right-handers right now. They can’t hit it, it’s unbelievable,” Callaway said.
