Mostly uneventful week, which is what you want in March. Jeffress was released due to some mysterious off field issue, meanwhile our hitters are bashing the ball. Three weeks until opening day. I'm still holding out hope of getting a ticket.

maybe the best news this spring is from robles: real good obp so far hitting leadoff and he's taken some walks.

Who's hot:
Zimmerman - only four games but top on the team with a 1.555 OPS
Castro
Avila - would be a nice surprise if he keeps hitting
Bell - will be pushing Zim for playing time
Harrison
Gomes

Who's not:
Turner
Kieboom - uh oh, not good
Soto - lowest OPS in spring, hold off on that half billion contract

We might need a dedicated Soto thread. Fangraphs says that he is worth a $500 million contact, Talk Nats says $400.

Good thing for Kieboom that spring stats don't matter, oh for three today.

The problem is that if there was 1 guy on the roster who really needed to have a good ST it was Kieboom. .143 so far.

And when he's not hitting, his high strikeout rate becomes even more problematic:

33% in 2019 regular season
40% in 2020 regular season
31% so far this Spring Training. Against pitchers of random quality

Stras seems to have bounced back from his sore leg, he pitched a sim game. Robles strained his back making a long throw and got pulled from the game yesterday but he's young and strong and should be fine. I hate spring training, nothing but five weeks of bad news.

And now Davey is suggesting 3B is up for grabs. Wonder if we're gonna see Castro at 3B and Harrison at 2B to start the season.

Spring training is over. After that rough first half inning the offense did well. No bad injuries. The only negative from Palm Beach was Kieboom's performance and hopefully he'll turn things around before the AS break.

Zimmerman + Bell together could be MASSIVE upgrades at 1B this season -- hope they both keep crushing the ball. Not the greatest ST's for Hand and Hudson. Hopefully those guys will work things out. They are badly needed this season. Rainey looks like he might be back to normal, 2 k's in 1 inning yesterday.
