Unlike the last two years, Buehler isn’t behind his peers at the start of spring training and should be 100% ready for the regular season. Roberts, however, said he would take the under on Buehler logging 200 innings this season. Buehler’s regular-season career high is 182 1/3 innings. . . . Joe Kelly was “under the weather” Friday, according to Roberts, and took the day off. Kelly started throwing this week after being shut down for a week. Roberts said he isn’t yet worried about Kelly’s status for opening day. …Catcher Keibert Ruiz, a Venezuela native, still hasn’t reported to spring training as he continues to deal with a visa issue.
Pivetta ended up making two starts for the Red Sox in late September and pitched well, allowing two runs in 10 innings with 13 K’s. This spring, he will try to win Boston’s fifth starter’s job.Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Design Face Coverings
Gonzalez: I'm gonna cheat a little and say Gavin Lux, who no longer has prospect status but has yet to break through on a loaded Dodgers team. This is his chance. Second base is right there for the taking with Enrique Hernandez gone and Chris Taylor expected to bounce around. The Dodgers don't just like him -- they view him as a future star. And he'll be just 23 years old all season. Lux struggled to hone in on the mechanics of his swing early last year and the Dodgers, on their way to a historically dominant season, didn't want to wait around. People with the team say he looks really good heading into spring training. His 2021 performance could impact what the team does long term at shortstop, where Corey Seager is a free agent at season's end.Cincinnati Reds MLB Design Face Coverings
When Brooks summoned Smith to his New York office, he bluntly asked her to explain the feedback. Tears rolling down her cheeks, Smith admitted to Brooks that her vision for her future in baseball had changed; that she couldn’t imagine wearing a blazer and heels to work every day; that even though she had positioned herself perfectly to pursue a baseball operations career, her ideal office was a dugout, not a desk.

On the field, Pujols is hoping to reverse the declining production that has become his trend in recent seasons. After three consecutive campaigns with a batting average in the .240s and on-base-plus-slugging percentage below .750 from 2017-19, Pujols’ numbers reached new lows in last season’s pandemic-shortened campaign, when he hit a career-worst .224 with a .665 OPS and 25 strikeouts to only nine walks in 39 games.Texas Rangers MLB Design Face Coverings
“Lo’s return is obviously a huge shot in the arm for us,” Stearns said, via McCullough. “This is a guy who has the reputation, and rightfully so, as one of the best defensive outfielders in all of baseball. Adding him back to the middle of our diamond makes a huge difference.”Baltimore Orioles MLB Design Face Coverings
Jameson Taillon, SP, New York Yankees: Two Tommy John surgeries, testicular cancer, an inguinal hernia -- all before the age of 30. Taillon has certainly had more than his share of challenges in the first decade of his professional career, but the good news is his career is forging ahead. Traded to the Yankees in January of 2021, Taillon is hopeful that revised mechanics coming off a second UCL (ulnar collateral ligament) surgery will help him achieve success. The data on revision surgeries (as second TJ surgeries are called) is, well, interesting. In a 2019 study published in the Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine looking at trends and outcomes following revision surgery in professional baseball pitchers, the authors discovered that while 77% returned to play, only 55% returned to their same level of play. It remains to be seen just how Taillon will be able to perform, but his efforts to modify his delivery may be critical to his success.
