My guess... only three:


Ernest Dove said...

Do they protect any of the catchers because of the centeno loss ?

Charles said...

Thor, Verrett, Leathersich, Morris, Mazzoni, and hopefully Ynoa.

Three definites in my view are Thor, Mazzoni, and Leathersich. I lean towards Verret because of the success that McHugh is now having. There is a place for pitchers who know how to locate and have a decent arsenal of pitches. Verret has value to many teams.

Ynoa has SP3 upside and a shitty team may burry him in their bullpen for a year. Morris has proven to have too good of an arm and could move quickly this season and end up in AAA.

If they could protect Robles two years ago, they can protect Morris. And hopefully they will.

Other than that, anyone else could be a stretch. But last year they protected Goedell. That was surprising to me so you never know.

Ernest -

Possibly Maron but my guess would be no.
