Two options have made a case Steve Pearce Jersey , but who takes the job?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Twinkie Town Farm ReportSatire, Irreverence, & Other HumorGame RecapsJake Cave vs. Michael Reed for fourth outfielder; Who ya got?New,17commentsTwo options have made a case, but who takes the job?EDTShareTweetShareShareJake Cave vs. Michael Reed for fourth outfielder; Who ya got?Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY SportsAs spring training comes to a close, many of the roster spots have already been determined. However, the regular season is approaching quickly(!!!) and the Twins have two men on the roster who have made a strong case to take the 4th outfielder spot. We all know about Jake Cave, who came out of nowhere to become one of the best hitters on the squad last year while filling in for the injured/inconsistent Byron Buxton. After his season last year (at age 25), one would assume he’d be a roster lock. However, Buxton is back and (hopefully) better than ever, and the corners are locked down by Rosario and Kepler. A spot as the fourth outfielder would naturally be his spot to lose, then. Enter Michael Reed. The 26-year-old has seen very limited action in the bigs with the Braves and the Brewers over the last three years, and many saw him as nothing but a depth signing this winter. However, Reed has showcased a sweet swing to produce a strong spring that is now meriting roster consideration (he’s even a Minnesotan, too!)Let’s look a little deeper. The two outfielders are strikingly similar on the surface. Both are 26 years old (born less than a month apart). Both are listed at 6 feet tall J. D. Martinez Jersey , with Reed packing a little more weight (200 lbs to 215 lbs). They can both play all three outfield positions if need be. It is hard to draw much of a comparison from their stats, as they have limited big-league experience. We’ll take a look anyway. In one year, Cave slashed .269/.316/.481 with 13 (mostly very, very long) dingers over 283 at-bats, producing 1.5 WAR. He has proven himself to be a productive hitter in the bigs. Over three years, Reed has produced to the tune of .229/.270/.257 and 0 home runs, but take those numbers with a grain of salt. Reed has only received 35 at-bats, and no more than 22 in a single season. However, he has out-shined Cave in spring training action this year. Reed is batting .313 with a home run in 16 AB’s, while Cave is hitting .268 (also with one home run) in 41 at-bats. If you overlook Reed’s advantage in the very limited sample size of spring training, I believe Cave is clearly the choice. Minor league options complicate the matter. Cave has two options left, while Reed has none. This means that if Reed doesn’t make the roster, the Twins will have to risk losing him on the waiver wire. Given his strong spring and the constant need for suitable outfielders, there is a pretty good chance he would be picked up by another team if this occurred. So the central question is this: do the Twins believe that Jake Cave will be enough of an improvement over Reed to justify losing Reed? Furthermore, do the Twins believe they have enough depth that they can lose another outfielder after shipping away Zack Granite this spring? It’s hard to say what the front office will do. However Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , here’s how I’d answer those questions: yes and yes. Jake Cave was not only a good backup outfielder last year, he was a legitimately good player. He also got enough at-bats that his season should not be considered a small-sample-size aberration. Reed has proven very little, and having 16 good at-bats in spring training shouldn’t outweigh that. The Twins have two AAA outfielders who should be ready to get their feet wet this year (Lamonte Wade and Brent Rooker), and replacement-level outfielders will likely be available on waivers at any given time during the season. It’s not only AAA that can provide extra outfield depth, either. Marwin Gonzalez, Ehire Adrianza, and Willians Astudillo (to a lesser degree) are all capable (or more than capable) to man outfield positions, and Kepler can cover centerfield with ease if Buxton is out. In conclusion, I believe Jake Cave should be the fourth outfielder for the Twins come Opening Day. Don’t send him back to the Jake Cave! Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi met with reporters to discuss the latest on Clayton Kershaw, Dave Roberts, and Manny Machado."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 2019 Spring TrainingProspectsCommentaryNews and NotesDodgers News & NotesFriedman, Zaidi on Kershaw’s contract, bringing back Roberts, Machado’s lack of hustle New,106commentsByBlakeHarris@BlakeHarrisTBLANov1 Richie Ashburn Jersey , 2018,3:43pm PDTShareTweetShareShareFriedman, Zaidi on Kershaw’s contract, bringing back Roberts, Machado’s lack of hustle Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsOn Thursday morning, both Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi sat in front of reporters and answered many questions in regards to the team. Obviously, the biggest question at hand was what the latest was with Clayton Kershaw, who has until Friday at 1 p.m. PT to opt out of his contract. Friedman described the negotiations as “pleasant”, where Zaidi described them as “ongoing”. The original deadline for a decision was Wednesday night by 9 p.m., but Friedman believed the turnaround from the World Series loss wasn’t enough time. “He’s made as much of an impact on an organization in terms of success we’ve had,” Friedman said. “Not just on the field, but from a culture standpoint.”Another offseason question is whether or not the Dodgers will bring back Manny Machado. With the injury to Corey Seager, LA had a void to fill at the shortstop position. During the trade deadline they went out and got Machado, and some believed the Dodgers may attempt to re-sign him in the offseason. After a controversial postseason, many doubt whether or not LA has any intent of bringing him back. “From a helping us win games standpoint , we feel like he came in and did a lot to get us to the point he did,” Friedman said. “He’s talked about the not hustling thing. Doc talked to him a lot about it.” “Some guys don’t hustle and it’s that they don’t really care. And some guys don’t hustle and they do care. That distinction does matter in terms of the mindset the guys have. It wasn’t a great look. Being up in the suite and watching it, it’s not a great look. He even commented that he looked at a replay of something where he’s ‘Oh wow, that didn’t look great.’ But I think he did care and his teammates really liked him and respected him.”Another one of the hottest questions is surrounding what the Dodgers plan to do with manager Dave Roberts. With his contract up, and after some controversial decisions in the World Series, many fans are calling for a new skipper. Though there aren’t any active talks, Friedman isn’t concerned, as he thinks both sides will be able to reach a deal and bring back Roberts. ‘We talked throughout the year about how optimistic we are,” Friedman said. “We’re going to work together for a long time. We remain that way. When we get to a point of having something to announce, we will.”After being the first team to bench their top-four home run hitters in a World Series game, Friedman says it won’t impact how they set their lineups moving forward. “90 percent of the home runs those guys hit were against right-handed pitching,” he said. “The fact that the other team started a lefty [David Price] mattered.”“I also think we had a very deep lineup against left-handed pitching as well. We struggled against lefties for a period of time. We got to a point where we were very well balanced against left-handed and right-handed pitching. From the NLCS on, we struggled offensively. It happens over different points of the year. Unfortunately, the timing of that was unfortunate.”
