DJ Carrasco can’t keep a job.

I could see an attempt to resign him. So I guess the Zach Duke deal went down or they’re waiting till Midnight.

It would have been more pithy to say that he cannot “hold” a job. You know, since he had seven holds last year. The redheaded stepchild of middle relief stats.

Surprisingly so.

Theres always one surprise…The Non-tenders have pretty much barely started (there are going to be a ton more) but the first hand surprise is Sammy Gervacio…I want to see the Royals sign him.

I was non-tendered last week from rookie ball. I couldn’t believe it. To think they would do that to a 38 year old veteran rookie ball crusher.

DJ come back to the south side.

I just don’t understand why you would nontender someone like Carrasco especially the Dbacks. Here is a guy who is effective in the bullpen and give you a decent spot start every now and then.

And they let him go for nothing?!

4 years 8 months ago

This IS the Diamondbacks we’re talking about here.

So they decide to nontender Boyer instead?

Still not a good move IMO.

Padres non-tendering somebody named Tony Gwynn is like not calling your mom on Mother’s Day.

Infield Fly

While the Gwynn name is a sentimental favorite, the player himself…well…let’s just say he’s not all that much like his father. Besides memories he brings little more to the table than his glove. I don’t know that you can expect a team to keep someone like that on the roster indefinitely, but maybe this is an experiment to see how the fans respond. If there’s an outright mutiny the Padres can always re-sign him.

4 years 8 months ago

Pitching and defense damn near got the Friars into the post season. Given how far the Giants went with that formula, I would be hesitant to minimize a good glove. Especially one in Petco.

Infield Fly
4 years 8 months ago

No minimizing about it (particularly on the part of someone who LOOOOVES the D’). It’s just conjecture, so don’t misconstrue things.

Looking at things at another way, from last season to this, the Giants decided they needed a little more in the offense department, and made sure they got it before the trade deadline. That seems to be part of how they got past you guys in the end. So perhaps cutting a sentimental favorite to make room for a difference-making bat could be a helpful thing for you guys, going forward.

I think Dad would still outhit son.

jimboslice9

Considering Gwynn says he couldn’t come back now because he can’t run, but he can still hit just as well as he did on the tail end of his career, I’d say his son isn’t the only player he could outhit at this point.

I think Gwynn would be a nice pickup for the Marlins. They need someone with speed and good defense to patrol that large outfield. Sure his hitting is weak, but anything is better then watching Cameron Maybin and his atrocious defense.

Infield Fly
4 years 8 months ago

Ironically, one of Maybin’s catches made the “Best Defensive Plays of 2010,” on the MLB Network. Based on your assessment that must’ve been an “off” day for him. :)

mlbscout6
4 years 8 months ago

The problem with judging a players defense on an instant replay is you don’t get to see the whole play. Maybin gets terrible jumps on the ball and will often run in on a ball hit over his head. So while he may make the occaisional diving catch, most of those plays he shouldnt have had to dive for in the first place. And the ones that he doesnt catch up to turn into doubles and triples.

Infield Fly
4 years 8 months ago

Ugh! Sounds a lot like Eric Byrnes (and others) — taking an indirect route to a ball so that it practically requires a dive in order to finally make the play. In Maybin’s case it sounds like this is due to a lack of skill. However Byrnes was a fake showboater. I sure don’t miss watching him in the field!

mlbscout6
4 years 8 months ago

If there is one thing Maybin is not it’s a showboater. He is a nice, humble guy and a great athlete, but unfortunately has very poor baseball instincts. I really hope someone can teach him but I have a feeling that his poor instincts in the field and poor pitch recognition at the plate will be thing that gets him benched or sent down halfway through the season

grabarkewitz

Byrnes was awful in the outfield. I never saw a guy misplay more balls than he did and not get called on it by any announce team.

4 years 8 months ago

Lol but his show was cool lol:)

See Jacoby Ellsbury especially in 2009

Dan Uggla is still listed as a Marlin in non-tender tracker. Just figured I’d point that out.

padreshobo

Gwynn was a nice defensive sub. I also enjoyed his inside the park home runs. But outside of late inning defense and those two plays he was less than memorable to me. I think the only fans that will be heartbroken will be the same fans that show up to season ticket holder meetings and ask when we are going to get our big bat, when are we resigning Adrian, or when we are going to have a payroll above $100 million.

4 years 8 months ago

Don’t forget his hit as the brewers which knocked the Padres out of the playoffs in 07

I would LOVE to see Diaz play for the Sox. It would be nice to have a traditionally good bat against LHP in the AL East with all those lefties (to platoon with either Ortiz or Drew)

4 years 8 months ago

So Carrasco isn’t listed anyone. Maybe he was tendered.

4 years 8 months ago

yeah what happened with that? can they non tender him then just say oh just kidding we want you? haha

4 years 8 months ago

So he was nontendered it seems.

Kevin Towers should be all over Sammy Gervacio….25 yrs old, cheap and could be a closer one day with electric stuff.

4 years 8 months ago

Yeah I agree, if we can add him, Putz and one more back end type of guy our bullpen will be pretty nice looking.

grabarkewitz
4 years 8 months ago

And one of the best windups in the game.

oremlk

He went down with a shoulder injury early last season and didn’t pitch again. I’m not sure whether he had surgery, I forget, but shoulder injuries are the most frequent causes of early career ends for pitchers. TJ surgery is no big deal (relatively speaking) by comparison.

Sage

Kevin Towers should be all over Luis Perdomo. Another young guy, Padres just non-tendered him. Did Towers have Perdomo when he was in SD? That would make it even more likely, I’d think.

padresfuture
4 years 8 months ago

Perdomo is ok. He is middle relief on most teams, could be an ok 7th inning guy on a weak bullpen like the D’backs. Would be a good pick up for them.

HerbertAnchovy

Guess it’s not Coffey time now.

4 years 8 months ago

By the Way Gervacio has been injured and that is why he was non-tendered

Dave_Gershman
4 years 8 months ago

I knew it! I Called the Veras non-tendering. The Marlins pen is just so packed now. Badenhop doesn’t have a spot.

marlinsfanatic
4 years 8 months ago

Bro the hopper is long relief he is staying on the team.

Dave_Gershman
4 years 8 months ago

I realize that, but there’s no room for him.

Webb/Nunez/Hensley/Mujica/Richardson/Sanches/Dunn. Where does the Hooper fit in?

marlinsfanatic
4 years 8 months ago

Richardson is not ensured a spot at all he is andrew miller junior. If you take him out of your projected bullpen we would only have six reliecvers, marlins carry around 10 just saying.

marlinsfanatic
4 years 8 months ago

Ceda cishek marines and jennings will all get looks and the hopper will definitely be in the pen.

Dave_Gershman
4 years 8 months ago

They don’t carry 10. I’d they did, that would make 5 starters in the rotation = 15, plus only 10 position players? Come on dude. Every teams pen has 7 relievers.

Dylan

Diaz will be in a Philly uniform next year.

Sage
4 years 8 months ago

Okay, I understand getting rid of Coffey (although, now we’ve lost all of our reliever entrance entertainment). But Inglett? He was the best pinch-hitter in the league last season. Why would we non-tender him?

Flharfh
4 years 8 months ago

The only reason I can think is that he was injured on and off and didn’t play very good defense. Kind of handicaps your bench when you have a guy who can pinch-hit but does little else.

Sage
4 years 8 months ago

That is a good point. It also occurs to me, he is already 32, and this would open up a spot to keep Mat Gamel on the roster.

Pirates close to signing Karstens, just like Neal told me earlier tonight…they were gonna sign some guys to avoid arb
