    Angels manager Mike Scioscia is pleased to see Trumbo becoming a more patient hitter.

    "I think that plate discipline is certainly something that can bring him more pitches, make him more productive, and when it's not there, pass the baton and take the walk," Scioscia said, per MLB.com.

  • 2013 MLB Draft: Top Pitchers

    content_img

    | | | |

    MLB's annual draft is a three-day event covering a whopping 40 rounds, and this year's draft begins on Thursday night. Day 1 covers rounds one and two, Day 2 covers rounds 3-10 and Day 3 covers rounds 11-40. Like the baseball season, the draft is a marathon. Not a sprint.

    Between now and then, we're going to give you a crash course in the top draft prospects available this year. Today we'll cover pitchers, Tuesday we'll cover position players and on Wednesday we'll try to unearth some sleepers. The full draft order -- which is subject to change during the offseason due to free agent compensation -- can be found . The , and hold the top three selections.

    The Pirates selected Appel with the eighth overall pick last summer, but he turned down a reported $3.8 million to return to school for his senior season. He's actually managed to improve his stock by refining his secondary pitches and pitching more aggressively this spring. Appel and his mid-90s heat, wipeout slider and improving changeup have true ace potential, and he could surface in the big leagues as soon as 2014. If Houston doesn't take him first overall, the Cubbies will surely pounce.

    Gray has something in common with Stephen Strasburg: he transformed himself from a chubby, near-non-prospect high schooler into an elite s been suspended until at least 3 April as a result of the spread of coronavirus.All Premier League games, EFL fixtures and matches in the FA Women's Super League and Women's Championship have been postponed.The Premier League said action wo, Switzerland and Wales abandoned their pursuit of Moussa Dembele because of Origi's end-of-season form.Origi scored a double in Liverpool's famous 4-0 semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield in May, before netting again in their Champions League final victory of Tottenhain the group stage in June, all those games played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.“Most of the Euro 2020 squad has already been decided," Mancini told Sky Sport Italia.“It's disappointing that Nicolò Zaniolo had that injuuld resumpitching prospect and a candidate to go first overall. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 239 lbs., Gray lives in the upper-90s with his fastball and will flirt with triple-digits. His slider is an out pitch and his changeup is taking steps forward. He improved his stock immensely this spring and could go anywhere from first overall through fifth overall. Both the Royals and Yankees have drafted Gray in the past, only to be rebuffed.

    Appel and Gray are the top two college arms in the class, but Shipley has emerged as the clear number three guy despite not becoming a full-time pitcher until just last year. He'll sit in the low 90s with his fastball like it's a walk in the park, and he's run it up as high as 99. His changeup is arguably the best in the draft, and his curveball has shown signs of being a swing-and-miss pitch. Considering his lack of pitching experience, Shipley has made major progress these last two seasons. He'll become the first Nevada player ever drafted in the first round when he goes in the top 10 picks on Thursday.

    The top consensus prep arm in the draft, Stewart is also premium quarterback recruit. He's a true four-pitch pitcher whose stuff rivals Appel's and Gray's, but he's considered more athletic with more room for growth. Stewart sits in the 91-95 mph range with his fastball and backs it up with the standard three-pitch mix: curveball, slider and changeup. There is some concern because his delivery is rough, but the raw stuff is undeniable. Stewart is committed to play football at Texas A&M, but the general belief is that he will turn pro instead of carrying a clipboard behind Heisman winner Johnny Manziel. He's also a Type 1 diabetic, but that hasn't deterred teams in the past. The pitching-starved , who hold the fourth overall pick, have been connected to Stewart all spring.

    Ball is the best left-handed pitcher in the draft, and it's not particularly close either. He's a first-round talent both on the mound and in the outfield, but the consensus now is that his future lies on the mound. Ball is huge, listed at 6-foot-6 and 180 lbs., and he uses his size to drive his low-to-mid-90s fastball downhill. He spins a breaking ball well and is very athletic, so the belief is he will iron out his mechanics and refine his pitches as he fills out that lanky frame. The have the 13th pick and are said to like Ball as a lefty-hitting outfielder, but he's more likely to go in the top 10 as a pitcher.

    Stewart and Ball stand out from the high school pitching ranks, and there isn't really a clear number three prospect behind them. I'm giving Harvey the nod mostly because he has big league bloodlines -- his father, Bryan, was a three-time All-Star closer. Hunter has low-90s velocity and has shown 97 in the past, though not as often this spring. A big breaking curveball is his top secondary offering, but he doesn't have much of a changeup. Most top amateur pitchers simply don't need one and never really work on it. Harvey is expected to be selected towards the end of the first round or the beginning of the supplemental first round.

  • Francona’s Indians are winning, but will the rotation keep doing its part?

    content_img

    PHILADELPHIA -- The hired a manager with plenty of big-league experience, and a pitching coach with none. They spent nearly $120 million to beef up their lineup and their bench, and just $8 million to add to a starting rotation that was the third-worst in baseball in 2012.

    It was hard to believe in the Indians this spring, no matter how much you liked the lineup and the bullpen and even the much-improved clubhouse atmosphere that Terry Francona brought with him. It was hard to believe that their starters would be good enough to keep them in games.

    We still don't know that they will. We do know that they have, especially over a two-week span in which the Indians have been the best team in the American League.

    They had an 8-1 homestand, a series win in Detroit, a doubleheader split with the Yankees and then a two-game series split this week against the Phillies. They've followed their 8-13 start with a 13-5 stretch in which their rotation has pitched to a 3.17 ERA.

    More on IndiansAnalysisRelated linksMore coverage | | |

    looks like a top-end starter again. looks like a solid big-league starter.

    Even finally looks more like the guy the Indians thought they were trading for in July 2011, with three straight wins in which he has a 1.45 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings.

    They're not the only reason that the Indians started winning. The 28 home runs in 18 games helped. Francona's steadying hand, and the confidence he pushed on his players, helped.

    But we knew Francona would be an upgrade, and we knew that adding , , and Mike Avila would make the Indians' lineup deeper and give it more legitimate power threats.

    We didn't know about the starting pitching.

    Mickey Callaway did, or at least thought he did.

    Callaway is the 38-year-old pitching coach, a guy only four years removed from trying to keep his own playing career alive. He was pitching in Taiwan in 2009, then spent just three years as a coach in the Indians' minor-league system before the front office suggested that Francona interview him for the big-league job.

    "The first time I saw him, I said, 'Wow, he's young,'" Jimenez said. "I thought, 'He could still be pitching.' "

    Callaway won over Jimenez by quickly taking a trip down to the Dominican Republic to see him, and by telling him that he didn't see a need for major changes. Jimenez's career had been going backward since his near-Cy Young season in 2010, to the point where last year he led the American League with 17 losses and had a 5.40 ERA.

    But when Callaway started watching film of Jimenez and the other Indians starters, he didn't see big problems. Instead, he saw big opportunity.

    "If you looked at the stuff, and you didn't look at the results, you'd say it was unbelievable stuff," Callaway said. "But tg with Vitesse, Honda sent out 'come and get me' messages to United and AC Milan on social media as he sought a new club."Partly joking, partly serious," said Honda about his open applications. "United and Milan are fallen superpowers. I would like the results were bad, so the question was, 'What are we doing wrong?' "

    He settled on something that seems overly simple, something pitchers have been hearing from pitching coaches for as long as baseball has been played.

    "Throw the little white thing over the big white thing," Callaway said.

    Throw strikes. Attack hitters. Pound the zone. Concentrate on getting ahead in the count, and particularly on throwing a strike on 1-1 counts.

    When Callaway looks at the success the Indians starters have had recently, the part that he emphasizes is that they're throwing more strikes.

    What might be just as important is that the Indians pitchers seem to relate to him and trust him, which perhaps has helped his message get through.

    "If you'd have told me that he was going to do what he's done in a month-and-a-half as a rookie pitching coach, that's unbelievable," Franhas called for a stronger mentality after defeat at Everton.Azpilicueta admitted the early goals were particularly damaging."We did not start very well because we knew they could have a reaction in the stadium with a new manager but we didn't cope wecona said. "I'm so proud of him."

    Francona himself seems as comfortable and content as he has ever been since landing with the Indians. He seems refreshed, either from the year off or from being away from all that goes on with the Red Sox, or both.

    And he seems to have been the exact right guy to take over this team at this point.

    Anyone who knows Francona well won't be surprised that he showed no signs of panic when the Indians got off to a tough start. There was a five-game losing streak in mid-April, one that included a three-game home sweep at the hands of the Red Sox, but Francona didn't overreact.

    "He let us go thrlopp with his Liverpool players.In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemein, Rangnick paid tribute to Klopp, after the Liverpool boss was awarded Men's Coach of the Year at FIFA's The Best awards on Monday night. "If you look at Jordan Henderson or Jaough that without having a team meeting," said , who has emerged as a team leader, but is also watching and hoping to learn how to become a manager himself someday. "He let us find our way on our own. That just shows his type of leadership. He knew the guys he had in the room would take that leadership."

    The result is that when you ask people around the Indians why things turned around and when, they find it difficult to point to any one thing or any one game. It just kind of happened.

    The players who have been here know enough to remind you that a 22-17 start doesn't mean this team is going to contend. The Indians were also 22-17 last year, and they were even better than that after 39 games two years ago.

    This start is different, they all say. This team is different.

    But for all that has gone right, this team still only contends for a playoff spot if this starting pitching continues to prove that it's different.

    "I think that's true with any team, though," Masterson said. "Any team, no matter how good their rotation is, the success is always based on how the rotation does, because it's such a big part of the team."

    For now, it's a big part of an Indians team that is winning.

    We don't know that they will keep it up. We just know that they have.

  • Cardinals blind Cubs with hot sauce, retain EOB heavyweight title

    content_img

    | | | |

    It was a two-game set in Wrigley. The upstart took the opener by a single run, but the champion rebounded to win Wednesday's contest -- also by a single run -- and in doing so retained the Eye On Baseball Heavyweight Championship by virtue of a series tie.

    Wait, the "Eye On Baseball Heavyweight Championship"? What's that? That's this ...

    Since the concept of championship belts is cool in boxing, MMA and sports entertainment (aka pro wrestling), the Eye on Baseball team has decided to create a Heavyweight Championship belt for the 2013 season.

    As the defending World Series champions, the Giants entered the season with the strap. From there, here are our rules.

    1. A team must win a series from the champion to take the belt. One game isn't going to cut it, considering it's a 162-game season and teams all view Vincenzo Montella is delighted with the arrival of Franck Ribery.The veteran signed a two-year contract today, after 12 seasons at Bayern Munich.“He is an extraordinary player, he's eager and we believe he can express himself at his levels here," the season in terms of series.

    2. If the belt-holder splits a series (two- or four-game series), it retains. Much like on a draw in boxing or a count-out situation in pro wrestling, you don't get the belt unless you actually beat the champion. A tie isn't good enough.

    3. If, at the end of the regular season, the belt-holder does not make the playoffs -- and due to the dynamics of this thing, that scenario is entirely plausible -- said team will be stripped of the title for not qualifying for the postseason. Then the winner of the playoffs -- the World Series -- takes the belt and the title into the offseason.

    Anyhow, the Cardinals, en route to defending their belt and title in the most underwhelming of fashions, benefitted from some controversy. In the seventh inning, the Cubs batter, , was called out for running inside the baseline on a bunt. So instead of first and third no outs, the Cubs had a runner on first and one out. A double play followed. Defeat followed that. Here's the plaCity this summer.Despite their two season Champions League ban, Guardiola has declared his commitment to the end of his current contract - which runs to 2021.However, Gullit told SPOX: "I certainly don't rule that out (leaving). "Pep is determined toy in question ... 

    Wait. Did you see tr Leverkusen are not interested in selling Kevin Volland in January.The German side are hoping they can hold onto their vice-captain for the remainder of the season.Volland is attracting interest from Arsenal in the Premier League.The 27-year-old is hat? Take a look again, this time from a slightly different angle ...

    Yep. What at first blush appeared to be a borderline umpiring decision regarding base-running was actually an instance of the Cardinals' blinding the Cubs with illegal hot sauce in order to keep the belt and the title. Lo, the champions have been exposed as rogues and scoundrels! What shall we tell our children on this day?

    As proved throughout human history, power corrupts. Sadly, it is no different with the hallowed and exalted Eye On Baseball Heavyweight Championship.

    Carry on we must. Here, then, is the Gregorian Calendar of Champions, now updated to reflect the fact that the Cardinals will keep the belt until at least May 10, which marks the first game of their three-game home set against their next challengers, the belt-hungry Rockies ...
