With Spring training set to start tomorrow lets get some predictions going. Lets try and make them surprising but possible. Here are a couple of mine:
- Mesoraco almost forces his way onto the big league club. I see Mesoraco in a similar situation as Posey last year. Good enough to head north/east with the club but starts the season in AAA.
- Valakia makes the club as a utility INF and Cairo is cut.
- Todd Frazier wins the LF platoon job with Lewis, Gomes is traded.
- Willis wins the LH bullpen slot, Chapman is sent to AAA to be a starter.
Surprises: Willis, Frazier, Mesoraco, Hamilton
Disappointments: Alonso, Francisco, and Gomes
