With baseball under yearly assault by arm injuries, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price has a counterintuitive philosophy to developing pitchers.
The lefty missed bats but allowed multiple long balls in improbable comeback. Josh Smoker was called up at the end of August, threw 15.1 innings with a middling ERA, and was left off the Wild Card game roster. Frankly, even if Smoker had been lit up in every one of his outings, it could still be called a success. The 27-year-old was on a major league roster. A first-round pick by Washington in 2007, Smoker found himself pitching in independent ball by 2014—and not pitching all that well there. Almost immediately after getting drafted, Smoker underwent shoulder surgery. By 2013, beset by...
Injuries remain an issue, however. In most respects, Juan Lagares’s 2016 season was a success. His offense rebounded a bit, driven by the highest walk rate and line drive rate of his career. There’s an argument to be made that his 84 wRC+ was actually a bit of an underperformance due to a deflated BABIP as well. More importantly, Lagares’s defense rebounded to elite levels, as his 17.6 UZR/150 would have ranked sixth among major league center fielders had he played enough innings to qualify. After missing his defensive wizardry for a year in 2015, Met fans were treated to plays like...

Boston Red Sox trade: Tyler Thornburg has had past elbow issues; Is he same injury risk as Carson Smith?
The Red Sox traded for Carson Smith on the first day of last year's Winter Meetings, then he missed nearly all of 2016 because he underwent Tommy John surgery in May?
The Mets third baseman looks to begin his rehab later this month. While speaking to the media at the winter meetings today, Sandy Alderson said that David Wright is “definitely on track” to begin baseball activity later this month. This is the first news of the offseason regarding Wright’s rehab. Wright played in just 37 games during the 2016 season before suffering a herniated disc in his neck. The injury ended his season when he opted to have surgery on it after his neck did not respond well to any treatment. Wright was already receiving scheduled days off, as he played in only 38...

Eyeing a former Rookie of the Year to help solidify the team's bullpen. Without digging too deeply into their statistics, it’s pretty safe to say that both Anthony DeSclafani and Dan Straily had solid years as pitchers for the Cincinnati Reds in 2016, right? Certainly there are factors that limited their overall success - Disco’s oblique injury that cost him the early part of the season, Straily’s rather pedestrian K/BB ratio - but on the whole, they were two of the better pitchers the Reds rolled out last season, without a doubt. According to FanGraphs, they combined for 3.2 WAR in...
