Magpies re-sign LOOGY Morris

By Maggie Pye | 10 Mar | 2,662 comments

Jack Morris, the free agent relief pitcher who played for the Magpies in the 2047 season, has rejoined the organisation for the 2050 season, it was announced today. Morris split last season between Raleigh’s rotation and Albany’s bullpen, posting an 11-9 record with a 3.92 ERA. In his previous season for the Magpies, he put up a 2.84 ERA over 19 relief appearances.

Morris takes the LOOGY role in the Magpies bullpen, and David Gaines has been re-assigned to the minor league roster to continue his development. Morris seems likely to be only a stopgap in middle relief for the Magpies until either Gaines or prospect Marv Lewis are deemed ready to step up to the active roster permanently. Neither look very far away.

Magpies pre-season preview
Posted by Lauren Seesaw, @seesawseesawseesaw

The Magpies surprised themselves as much as anyone else with their superb season last year. But as their budget problems persist, can they continue to contend?

Rotation: Kevin Cantrell (3.5*, 16-12, 3.33) returns to head up the pitching staff, with Wesley Weaver (2.5*, 15-9, 2.86) a good #2 starter. Robinson Ortíz (3.5*, 18-8, 3.01) and Aurelio Alomar (1.5*, 14-10, 4.02) had up-and-down years. Former top prospect Israel Padilla (3*, 1-0, 2.53) takes up the spot vacated by the departed Jeremy Williams and will be one to watch. Marv Lewis and Cory Adams are the most talented of a big group of prospects pushing hard for game time.

Bullpen: League championship series disappointments aside, Gabe Copeland (4*, 6-2, 2.34) remains a quality closer. The setup men are the electric Ken James (5*, 5-2, 1.86) and occasional starter Gustavo Cruz (1.5*, 9-0, 2.27). The middle relief options are largely talented but inexperienced. Jesús Benítez (4.5*, 0-0, 3.86) and Bernardo Merrado (4*, 0-0, 9.00) are developing fast, while last season’s draft pick Walt Davidson (4*, no stats) has been fast-tracked to the majors. Free agent arrival Jack Morris (1.5*, 11-9, 3.92) will have to play well to keep hold of his spot ahead of flame-throwing David Gaines.

Catcher: Walton White has been traded, and Ernesto Solís (2.5*, .751 OPS, 3 HR) has been promoted to take over as starting catcher. Solís is an outstanding defensive catcher and good contact hitter. Veteran Kenkichi Sato (3.5*, .529, 21) has been brought in as cover while trade acquisition José Pereira gains experience on the minor league roster.

Infield: All-star first baseman Jeffrey White (4.5*, .969, 29) and third baseman Ángel Márquez (4.5*, .885, 20) anchor the lineup at the #4 and #5 positions. Ángel Ochoa (4.5*, .711, 10) enjoyed a good first full season as starting second baseman. Designated hitter Gonzalo Torralda (2.5*, .776, 12) started slowly but got progressively better as the year wore on. The jury is out on whether rookie Eric Warner (1.5*, .777, 0) can adequately replace Roberto Caro at shortstop. Youngster Nick Baker (1*, .723, 0) is a quality and versatile backup who excels all across the diamond and in the corner outfield positions. Juan MacNamara, Zacharie Garneau and Reynaldo Rodríguez are youthful and talented minor league players.

Outfield: Fan-favourite Enrique Limón (4.5*, .831, 19) plays left field and bats lead-off. Pedro Soto (4*, .812, 20) at RF and Gianni Hagenaars at CF (3*, .674, 29) complete a quality outfield trio with excellent defense. Backups Terry Lawrence (1.5*, .661, 1) and António Fernández (1.5*, .617, 2) will get regular at-bats. 23-year-old minor leaguers Rob Crawford and Dave Plummer are aiming to force their way onto the roster.

Third baseman Márquez signs 4-year, $60m extension with Des Moines
Move confirms slugger as key part of Magpies long-term plans

By Tim Curtain, 11:33PM, 15 Mar 50

Ángel Márquez has reached agreement with the Magpies on a 4-year contract extension worth $15m per year. The deal runs until the end of the 2054 season, buying out Márquez’s remaining arbitration years and first year of free agency at a continuation of his current salary. From the Magpies’ perspective the deal guarantees that Márquez will receive no further salary increase from the arbitration panel, and ties a key member of the lineup to the organisation for the long term.

GM Billy DePodesta is reportedly also in discussions with the agents of other Magpies players who will be eligible for arbitration at the end of this season, including reliever Ken James and infielder Ángel Ochoa, and further announcements may be on the way soon.

Ochoa and Hagenaars agree contract extensions with Magpies

By Maggie Pye | 19 Mar | 3,100 comments

The Magpies have announced today that second baseman Ángel Ochoa and centre fielder Gianni Hagenaars have both agreed 3-year contract extensions which run until the conclusion of the 2053 season. Both players are on minimum salary contacts for the coming season, but were on course to be eligible for arbitration at the end of the year. The agreed extensions mean neither player will now face the lottery and pressure of the arbitration panel process.

Hagenaars’s contract will pay him $3.7m per year, while Ochoa’s is valued at $4.0m annually. Magpies front office insiders say that both salaries are considerably lower than the figures that they estimated the two men could have be awarded by the arbitrator in the fall, and have helped ease the club’s huge projected overspend for next season and beyond by approximately $6m-$7m per year. Such club-friendly contracts do not, of course, mean that the two players will definitely remain in Des Moines for their full duration, but they do markedly increase their chances of GM Billy DePodesta retaining their services beyond this year.

GM’s notebook

- The net result of the offseason roster moves is to give me a player payroll for this season of $98m ($97.6m to be exact).
- The nice extensions agreed with Ángel Ochoa and Gianni Hagenaars have reduced the projection for 2051, but that still stands at a prohibitive $137.5m. And that doesn’t include an estimate for outfielder Terry Lawrence who is certain to be a super-2 qualifier for arbitration at the end of this season if he remains on the roster for the whole year.
- The second lowest SCL payroll after us, as of today, is Sacramento with $144m. Most of the other teams’ payroll is in the $180m-$200m range. Division rivals Lansing have a payroll of $264m!

Magpies agree 3-year pact with elite reliever James

By Maggie Pye | 26 Mar | 3,994 comments

Ken James has become the latest Magpies star to agree a contract extension which will keep him away from the dreaded arbitration panel process. James and Magpies GM Billy DePodesta shook hands on a 3-year, $12.6m deal which runs from 2051 to 2053. James will be eligible for free agency at the expiration of the contract.

The big right-hander, the Magpies’ first pick in the 2047 player draft, went 5-2 with a 1.86 ERA over 62 innings last term, racking up 75 strikeouts and a 1.00 WHIP. He primarily operated as their setup man bridging between the starting pitchers and closer Gabe Copeland. Pundits agree the deal looks extremely good value for the club.

Offseason round-up

Posted by Yvonne Yttrium | Mar 28 | 10:21AM

- The first major trade of the winter saw Denver acquire all-star starting pitcher Nathan Hanson from Santa Fe in exchange for former rookie of the year Iemitsu Ishii.
- After a slow start in the free agent marketplace, Tallahassee made the first major move by signing 31-year-old former Richmond catcher Troy Bartlett for 5 years, $104m. Bartlett bounced back last year from a poor 2048 season, but Islanders fans are concerned their team has significantly overpaid here.
- Starting pitcher Jeremy Williams signed a 3-year, $58m contract to pitch for St. Paul. That’s a huge hike on the 3-year, $21m contract he earned previously in Des Moines.
- It wasn’t until 12 January that the first really big name came off the free agent board, Annapolis signed starting pitcher Justin Dodson to a 3-year contract worth $21m annually. The Mustangs are looking to recover from a dreadful 66-96 season, and their starting pitching needs overhauling, so securing 2-time all-star Dodson looks a good place to start.
- Santa Fe won the race to sign 3-time Outstanding Pitcher Donnie Lee, the top free agent pitcher, inking the 31-year-old to a 4-year deal worth $90m. The Outlaws finished 14 games behind Baton Rouge in the South Division last year, and Lee will take a big step towards closing the gap.
- Trenton agreed a 6-year, $96m contract with injury-prone starter Steve Coleman. He is a good player - when he plays.
- All-star left fielder Juan Guillén joined Providence on a 4-year contract valued at $18m per year. He had originally been seeking closer to $25m.
- Tallahassee upgraded their already strong rotation by coming to terms on a 4-year, $21m per annum deal with former Salem man José Márquez. The 2047 champions now have former Outstanding Pitcher award winner Philip Givens earmarked as their #4 starter and are pushing hard for a second championship.
- The biggest contract of the winter was given by Phoenix to SP Junji Tada, who will earn $113m over the next 5 years. Tada and Kenny Young provide a quality #1-#2 punch at the top of the Raccoons’ rotation.

1 April 2050

From: Achilles Guesswork, Chief Scout
To: Billy DePodesta

Des Moines Magpies Scouting Department
PROSPECT REPORT


As you will be aware, the Baseball News Network has this morning published its annual Top 100 prospects list. It makes for extremely good reading for the club. Our top prospect a year ago, Israel Padilla, no longer qualifies thanks to be time on the major league roster last season. The #1 prospect overall is Boston’s 19-year-old starting pitcher Luis Vélez, the 6th overall pick in the 2048 draft.

Pitchers
#24 - SP Marv Lewis (down from #19 last year)
#49 - SP Ronald Williams (down from #45 last year)
#53 - SP Eduardo Castillo (new entry)
#55 - SP Roger Lambert (down from #53 last year)
#68 - SP Robert Terry (down from #48 last year)
#73 - MR David Gaines (new entry)
#87 - MR Walt Davidson (new entry)
#89 - SP Robinson Ramírez (up from #91 last year)

SP Cory Adams, #15 last year, remains a prospect on our minor league roster but was ineligible for BNN’s analysis due to his major league time in Lansing’s bullpen last year.

I was extremely surprised that SP Jesús Zamora, the #26 overall prospect last year, has dropped off the list completely. Our scouts are concerned that he is not developing the control of his pitches that we expected, but missing the top 100 entirely is a worry. What do BNN see that our scouts do not?

Position players
#44 - C José Pereira (up from #64 last year)
#89 - CF Lance Frazier (down from #75 last year)
#92 - 1B Darrel Rogers (up from #93 last year)

Our top draft pick last year, outfielder José Rosas, is another I would have expected to appear.
