, Ariz. (AP) — Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black isn’t ready to name his opening day starter. Kyle Freeland is pitching as if he’s got the job.Black said Monday he had yet to talk to all of the pitchers about the rotation order. The Rockies open March 28 at Miami.“You know Buddy — he’s not going to let you know until he tells you,” Freeland said.Jon Gray has started opening day for the Rockies the last two seasons, but Freeland, 25, may have earned the assignment this year. The lefty went 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA last season, throwing a career-high 202 1/3 innings. Freeland finished fourth in the NL Cy Young voting last year.What was impressive was how Freeland didn’t seem to mind pitching at Coors Field. He went 10-2 with a 2.40 ERA at home and 7-5 with a 3.23 ERA on the road.“I think a lot is made out of the altitude and both teams have to pitch there,” Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta said. “There have been times over the course of Rockies history where some of the guys on the pitching staff have been under talented compared to the rest of the league. I think now we have a pitching staff that’s on par with, if not better than (other teams), and Kyle’s one of those guys. He’s a great competitor. He doesn’t let the outside noise affect him. If anything, it kind of propels him further on.”It may help that Freeland was born in Denver. He’s used to the altitude.“There’s always talk about guys coming in who hate to pitch at Coors Field,” Freeland said. “You’ve already got an excuse in your mouth if you do that. You’re already setting yourself up for failure.”“I think with Kyle, and we’ve seen some other pitchers, maybe not to the extent that Kyle has, but if you make good pitches دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, you’ll be rewarded no matter where you’re pitching,” Black said. “Kyle’s mentality is such where he doesn’t care where he pitches. The ultimate goal for Kyle is to pitch a strong game no matter where he is.”Freeland did just that in the NL wild-card game against the Chicago Cubs, pitching 6 2/3 innings on short rest in a 2-1, 13-inning win.“You’re in a situation when it’s one and done and everything’s on the line in that one game and you come out on top, you realize, ‘We belong here,'” Freeland said.Freeland already has handled an opener, making his major league debut in the Rockies’ home opener on April 7, 2017.“If I get the opportunity to pitch another home opener or pitch opening day, I’m still going to address it as if it’s another start for me,” Freeland said. “There’s no reason to change your mentality.”On Monday, Freeland retired Reds leadoff batter Jesse Winker but then served up an opposite field home run to Scott Schebler on his third pitch of the game. Freeland lasted 4 2/3 innings and was lifted after throwing 77 pitches.“I was impressed by everything he did last year,” Iannetta said of the lefty. “His stuff is great — his compete level is off the charts. His ability to find ways that when he got in trouble or the game sped up, he found ways to rise ot the occasion which is impressive.”NOTES: Ryan McMahon went 2 for 3 with two RBIs دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, including his third home run this spring, a 466-foot shot to straightaway center. He’s batting .444 this spring, tops in baseball in both Arizona and Florida. “You hear a lot of people say, ‘It’s just spring,’ but when you’re going good, you put it up a little higher,” McMahon said. “I’m definitely excited about where I’m at and just want to try to keep going with it because it’s a very humbling game.” … The Rockies optioned outfielder Noel Cuevas to Triple-A Albuquerque and reassigned infielder Peter Mooney, right-handed pitcher Peter Lambert, and left-handed pitcher Sam Howard to minor league camp. The Rockies now have 35 players in camp, including four non-roster invitees. … Right-handed pitcher Antonio Senzatela is sidelined because of an infected blister on his right heel caused by new shoes. Lefty reliever Chris Rusin has been slowed because of upper back discomfort. … The Rockies have catchers Iannetta, Tom Murphy and Tony Wolters in camp. Will they carry all three in the regular season? “Doubtful,” Black said. A Tuesday report suggested the Seattle Mariners were willing to trade many of their top players for the right return this offseason.According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Mariners have told teams that they will move "just about anyone" if the trade market is strong. In the same vein, Seattle is open to rebuilding.Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto responded to the rumor later Tuesday دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, per Greg Johns and Maria Guardado of MLB.com:"Clearly over-dramatized is the best way to put that. We're open-minded to different ways we can get better, but what we're hoping to achieve is to reimagine our roster to look at it in terms of what is our quickest path to a championship club."We know what the Astros, Red Sox, A's, Yankees and Indians look like. We don't want to be a perpetual competitor for the second wild card. We want to build a championship roster. If that means in 2019 we field as competitive a team as we can while earmarking and gathering talent, we're not looking to rip our club down. We're just too talented to do that."Passan noted that there are caveats involved since infielder Jean Segura has a no-trade clause, and the M's will ask for huge hauls in return for outfielder Mitch Haniger, starting pitcher James Paxton and closer Edwin Diaz.Jon Heyman of Fancred later added that it "sounds" like the Mariners will keep Haniger, Diaz and pitcher Marco Gonzales but noted, "Everyone else is up for grabs."The Mariners missed the playoffs last season with an 89-73 record, and they have not reached the postseason since 2001, which is the longest active drought in Major League Baseball.Seattle appeared on track to end the drought during the first half of the 2018 season, but a second-half surge by the Oakland Athletics ended the Mariners' season early once again.Despite missing the playoffs, the Mariners had some hugely productive players on their roster last season.Offensively دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, Segura hit .304 with 10 home runs, 63 RBI and 20 stolen bases, while Haniger hit .285 with 26 homers and 93 RBI.Also, impending free-agent designated hitter Nelson Cruz hit .256 and led the team with 37 home runs and 97 RBI.Pitching-wise, Paxton went 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA and 208 strikeouts in 160.1 innings.Diaz enjoyed one of the best seasons ever by a closer, as he posted a 1.96 ERA, struck out 124 batters over 73.1 innings and recorded an MLB-leading 57 saves.With 62 saves in 2008, Francisco Rodriguez is the only closer to finish with more saves in a single season than Diaz.One name that is likely to come up often in trade talks this offseason regardless of whether the Mariners tear down the roster is former ace Felix Hernandez.The six-time All-Star and 2010 American League Cy Young Award winner struggled through a career-worst season in 2018, as he went 8-14 with a 5.55 ERA.Hernandez may not have much left in the tank, but he has only one year remaining on his contract, which could make the 32-year-old a low-risk acquisition for pitching-needy teams.Prior to the start of the 2018 season, Baseball America ranked Seattle's farm system as the worst in Major League Baseball.Given the lack of talent coming through the pipeline and Seattle's inability to reach the playoffs, a rebuild may be the best way to make the Mariners a contender in the coming years.
