Dan Szymborski | FanGraphs: The Phillies haven’t finished with more than 82 wins since they won 102 in 2011. If Philadelphia is to finish better than .500, Dave Dombrowski will need to add to a top-heavy roster. ZiPS loves Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler, but it doesn’t love the depth.
Blake Newberry | Viva El Birdos: In Alex Reyes’s first full season since 2016, he showed why he was such a highly-regarded pitching prospect. He displayed excellent swing and miss stuff albeit with little command. Harnessing his curveball could be the next step for the Cardinals’ reliever.
RJ Anderson | CBS Sports: With the lockout unlikely to end anytime soon, free agents on the fringes have even more reason to look for work outside of MLB. A handful of players have already signed with teams in the KBO and NPB including Freddy Galvis and Ivan Nova. Perhaps more could follow as spring draws near.
