Olney On Shortstops, Juan Cruz, Mets

The latest from the blog of ESPN's Buster Olney...

  • Olney muses on who the Giants might look at as a midseason acquisition if Miguel Tejada does not work out at shortstop.  He comes up with Jose Reyes, Marco Scutaro, and Jack Wilson as possible trade candidates.  I can see Stephen Drew, J.J. Hardy, and Ronny Cedeno as other possibilities.
  • Evaluators tell Olney Rays reliever Juan Cruz looks excellent.  Apparently recovered from shoulder surgery, Cruz has allowed one run in eight spring innings.  He's whiffed nine and allowed only two hits, but also walked seven.
  • The Mets intend to keep Rule 5 picks Brad Emaus and Pedro Beato, according to Olney.  With Justin Turner being cut today, Emaus certainly appears to be the second base starter.  Joel Sherman of the New York Post digs into the Mets' logic with Emaus here.  The infielder, 25 on Monday, hit .298/.395/.495 at Triple-A last year.
