    Orioles’ Trash Find National League Success
Perhaps it’s just my Baltimore bias but it’s always seemed like the Yankees could pick up any fading, aging star, plug him into the lineup, and watch him have a career resurgence. For every big money free-agent flop that’s floundered in the Bronx there’s a David Justice, Bobby Abreu, Alfonso Soriano, or Cecil Fielder. In recent years leaving Baltimore’s had a similar effect on careers, as the Orioles’ trash has become National League treasure.
The O’s shipped a pair of confounding pitchers to the Cubs last summer for Scott Feldman. Jake Arrieta and Pedro Strop had the stuff to be big league standouts but their inconsistency left fans wanting to bang their heads together. After posting a 7.25 ERA for the Orioles last season, Strop pitched to a 2.83 ERA in 37 games for the Cubs. Strop got off to a fast start for Chicago this season but succumbed to a groin strain in early May. The recently activated right-hander figures to return to a setup role for newly appointed Cubs’ closer Hector Rondon.

    Power-Starved Cubs Swing Big in Draft
The Chicago Cubs have one of baseball’s least productive outfields. While Junior Lake flashes some promise and easy power at the plate the rest of Chicago’s outfield is a wasteland. The Cubs took a step towards addressing their outfield power outage by selecting University of Indiana standout Kyle Schwarber with the fourth overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Schwarber, who caught at Indiana but is expected to move to the outfield as a professional, was considered by many to be the top power bat in the draft and was predicted to be selected in the middle of the first round. The Cubs were rumored to be salivating at the chance to select North Carolina State lefty Carlos Rodon with their first selection. The crosstown White Sox threw the Cubbies a curveball when they chose Rodon one spot ahead of the Cubs. Schwarber may be viewed by some as a consolation prize after missing out on the draft’s top arms but he’s an advanced hitter who could move quickly through Chicago’s minor league system.

    Stubborn Pirates Sink in Standings

The Pittsburgh Pirates followed up last season’s long-awaited playoff run with a dormant winter. The team lost starter A.J. Burnett first to retirement then to the Phillies, as well as sluggers Marlon Byrd and Justin Mourneau. Burnett was replaced by the underwhelming Edinson Volquez and the promise of Jameson Taillon. Byrd and Mourneau weren’t really replaced at all.
The Pirates have scuffled in the early going of 2014. Francisco Liriano hasn’t been able to replicate his 2013 success, Volquez has been predictably lackluster, and the recently acquired Ike Davis has contributed just two home runs since his trade from the Mets. The Pirates lost Taillon, the team’ stop pitching prospect, early in the season to Tommy John surgery. Taillon won’t be making a mid-season big league debut a la Gerrit Cole in 2013. Pittsburgh also has a gaping hole in right field where Jose Tabata has contributed just five extra base hits in over 100 at bats. Tabata shares time with Travis Snider and his .212 batting average.
