Give me 25 of your best men!"Today is the fir Antworten

st day of spring training Babe Ruth Jersey , a good time to make predictions on which 25 players will be introduced at Kauffman Stadium on Opening Day against the Chicago White Sox 44 days from now. Much of the Royals starting lineup seems about set, but right field may still be up in the air. Jorge Bonifacio and Brett Phillips still have an option year remaining, which may work agains them, while Brian Goodwin and Terrance Gore do not. The fifth spot in the starting rotation is up for grabs with Heath Fillmyer and Jorge Lopez the most likely candidates, although a surprise candidate like Ben Lively, Trevor Oaks, or even veterans Homer Bailey or Jesse Hahn could impress with a strong spring. As for the bullpen, it is almost completely up for grabs save for maybe veterans Wily Peralta and Brad Boxberger. Here are the players currently in camp:Catchers:Nick Dini*, Xavier Fernandez*, Cam Gallagher, M.J. Melendez*, Salvador Perez, Sebastian Rivero*, Meibrys ViloriaInfielders: Humberto Arteaga*, Hunter Dozier, Samir Duenez*, Jecksson Flores*, Kelvin Gutierrez, Nicky Lopez*, Erick Mejia*, Whit Merrifield, Adalberto Mondesi, Ryan O’Hearn , Frank Schwindel*Outfielders: Jorge Bonifacio, Brian Goodwin, Alex Gordon, Terrance Gore, Billy Hamilton, Elier Hernandez*, Chris Owings, Brett Phillips, Jorge Soler, Bubba Starling*Starting pitchers: Homer Bailey*, Scott Barlow, Scott Blewett, Danny Duffy, Heath Fillmyer, Jesse Hahn, Jakob Junis, Brad Keller, Ian Kennedy, Ben Lively, Jorge Lopez, Trevor OaksRelief pitchers: Jason Adam*, Brad Boxberger, Chris Ellis Joe DiMaggio Jersey , Brian Flynn, Conner Greene, Foster Griffin*, Arnaldo Hernandez, Tim Hill, Jake Kalish*, Richard Lovelady, Zach Lovvorn*, Andres Machado*, Kevin McCarthy, Sam McWilliams, Jake Newberry, Wily Peralta, Glenn Sparkman, Josh Staumont, Michael Ynoa*, Kyle ZimmerSuspended: Eric Skoglund*-indicates not on the 40-man rosterWho is on your 25-man roster? Bob Levey/Getty ImagesIt's not often that Major League Baseball sees a seismic move prior to the trade deadline, but that will be the case this season as it looks like Baltimore Orioles slugger Manny Machado is headed out of town.Per Bob Nightengale of USA Today, "the Baltimore Orioles, barring a last minute snag, will trade All-Star shortstop Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday."While the biggest name on the trading block appears to be off the table, a few other notable players should be on the move. You can take a look at three of them below. J.A. HappAt 43-52, the Toronto Blue Jays are playing out the string. They sit 23.5 games back in the American League East race and 14 behind the Seattle Mariners for the AL's second wild-card spot.Therefore Mickey Mantle Jersey , it's no surprise that their No. 1 pitcher, J.A. Happ, could be headed out as the Blue Jays look toward the future. Per Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia, "there is definite interest" in the southpaw.While Happ has done fairly well this year (121 strikeouts in 106 innings, 4.02 FIP per Baseball Reference), a glance at the Phillies' depth chart reveals that bullpen help may be a bigger need. Salisbury noted the Phils are interested in Orioles lefty reliever Zach Britton (more on that in a minute), and that would likely take precedence over any Happ deal.However, Happ would give the Phils their only lefty in the starting rotation, and he would presumably be the team's No. 3 starter behind ace Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta.Philadelphia would then have a good problem on its hands, as it would have four solid candidates (Zach Eflin, Enyel De Los Santos, Vince Velasquez and Nick Pivetta) for the final two rotation spots during the stretch run.Presumably, De Los Santos, a 22-year-old prospect with just two starts under his belt, would be an odd man out, leaving three right-handers for two roles.It's never much of a problem to have an overabundance of pitching options, so the surprising Phillies would be set up quite well for a playoff race should they land Happ.Zach BrittonBaltimore Orioles left-hander Zach Britton was the subject of trade rumors last year, but nothing ever materialized.Given how poorly Baltimore has done this year (28-69), one has to figure that he'll be on the move as the team begins an extensive rebuilding process.A few rumors have been reported.Per Bruce Levine of 670 The Score, "the Cubs are one of eight contending teams talking to the Baltimore Orioles about reliever Zach Britton, according to a source."Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia added some information about the Phillies' interest in the left-hander:Jim Salisbury JSalisburyNBCSI am getting the vibe that the Phillies are angling to land Machado AND Britton is same deal. VaSulQpHjnAt his best, Britton was one of the best relievers in the game. According to Baseball Reference, Britton earned 120 saves in addition to a microscopic 1.38 ERA from 2014-2016. He was also called upon nearly every other day , as the O's reliever made 204 appearances.However, Britton has battled injuries over the past two years, notably forearm tightness in 2017 and a ruptured Achilles tendon that kept him out for the first part of the 2018 campaign.Since his 2016 campaign, which saw Britton post a 0.54 ERA and 47 saves, the southpaw has fallen back to Earth a bit to the tune of a 3.19 ERA. However, if Britton stays healthy, gets into a groove and returns closer to his mid-decade form, then whichever team gets him at the deadline will receive a tremendous asset toward the stretch run.Jeurys FamiliaPer Buster Olney of ESPN, New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia could be going elsewhere:Buster Olney Buster_ESPNNL teams appear to be at the forefront of the talks about the Mets Jeurys Familia, who is among the best available relievers. Phillies interested (although they may wait until Britton/Machado talks resolved), Giants, etc.The Mets' season has been an absolute disaster, as they sit in last place in the National League East with a 39-55 record. The issue is that the team needs to undergo a massive organizational rebuild, as the farm system isn't stacked with potential MLB prospects. Of note, Sam Dykstra of ranked the Mets' farm 26th out of 30 MLB teams prior to the season.At this point, the Mets need to go on a fire sale, which is why trading Familia makes sense. For the season, the 28-year-old has 17 saves and a 2.88 ERA.Either the aforementioned Phillies or Giants can work: Both teams could use relief help, although Philly's bullpen ERA ranks in the bottom half of the league (4.08, which is 17th). The Phils may be more desperate than San Francisco to make a move for Familia.Ultimately, don't expect Familia to be a Met by the end of the month. He's likely joining a team in the middle of a playoff race.
