Offseason Notes for February 13th
Oakland Coliseum, minutes before first pitch. Table of ContentsHeres the table of contents for todays edition of Offseason Notes. 1. Projecting: ZiPS for Oakland2. Tre Madden Jersey Unhelpful Video: Tom Milone Homers3. Crowdsourcing Broadcasters: Texas Television Projecting: ZiPS for OaklandDan Szymborski has published his ZiPS projections for the Oakland As. Below are some from the notable ones, accompanied by very rough WAR projections (for hitters per 600 plate appearances and pitchers per 200 innings). All numbers a sume major-league competition. OPS+ and ERA+ are park-adjusted. Seth Smith, RF, 29: .245/.322/.408, 97 OPS+, 1.7 WAR600Smith, acquired this offseason in a trade that sent right-hander Guillermo Moscoso and left-hander Josh Outman to Colorado, Quinton Jefferson Jersey isnt interesting in and of him self, but instead because his 97 OPS+ represents the highest projected mark around the entire Oakland roster. As Szymborski notes, [T]he offense is going to be god-awful. Having said that, both Coco Crisp (2.4 WAR600) and Kurt Suzuki (3.3 WAR600) could be more valuable relative to their positions than Smith. Tom Milone, LHP, 25: 159.0 IP, 114 K, 33 BB, 13 HR, 4.3 WAR200ZiPS gives Milone an ERA of 4.02, but (roughly calculated) FIP of something closer to 3.40. Given that he sits at just 87-88 mph, the Kelvin Taylor Jersey entire velocity thing remains a problem, but its very po sible that Milone will a minimum of approach his projected strikeout and walk rates of 6.5% and 1.9%, respectively. Jarrod Parker, RHP, 23: 124.1 IP, 94 K, 53 BB, 9 HR, 3.2 WAR200Brad Peacock, RHP, 24: 143.0 IP, 127 K, 67 BB, 16 HR, 2.3 WAR200Parker and Peacock are two other pitchers Oakland acquired via trade this offseason the former within the deal that sent Trevor Cahill to Arizona, the latter within the one which sent Gio Gonzalez to Washington. Parker is ranked first overall within the org in the recently released Baseball America Prospect Handbook; Peacock, third in the Washington org. Unhelpful Video: Tom Milone HomersThis George Fant Jersey video of left-handed starter Tom Milone homering in his first major-league plate appearance wont help you understand anything about his prospects like a pitcher. Crowdsourcing Broadcasters: Texas TelevisionThis offseason, FanGraphs is asking readers to rate the broadcast teams for those 30 major-league clubs. (Get more information at more about this project.)
