A few guys we will see in 2020- P Chris Sale, P Luis Severino, P Noah Syndergaard, P- Seranthony Dominguez, P- Tyler Beede, 1B/OF Trey Mancini,

OF/DH- Yoenis Cespedes of the NY Mets- Brings a big power bat to the already outstanding lineup. Cespedes offers excellent protection in the lineup to Pete Alonso.

P/OF/DH- Shoei Ohtani of the LA Angels- Will pitch once a week. WOOOOHOOOO get this man in the lineup, get him on the field. Let him go to work and help Trout be Trout. Very excited about this news

P- Cole Hamels of the Atlanta Braves. Great for the Braves Rotation, who needs to lead and the additional depth. I also expect to see Felix get into this rotation and be a stabilizing force.

P- James Paxton of the NY Yankees. Man, Put this guy after Cole, Tanaka, and maybe even get Severino back for the playoffs. Watch out!

OF/DH- Aaron Judge of the NY Yankees. Judge is going to play regardless of how his ribs feel. He has said he is fully healthy. Hopefully, the Yankees are smart with their slugger as his bat will be crucial in a 60 game season.

P- Justin Verlander of the Houston Astros. If JV makes it back to the field from a groin injury and he is in that rotation for the Astros, regardless of how much I like this team or not, they get that much harder to beat.

P- Austin Adams of the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners will be their bullpen to ready for the season, and Adams is a massive part. As he is expected to be there as Set Up man or as the Closer

OF- Mitch Haniger of the Seattle Mariners- This man has had crappy luck the last season and offseason. He is recovering from offseason surgeries. Yes, more than one. He is a pure hitter and an above-average defender. Without him in the lineup, the young guys have big shoes to fill.

P- Jameson Tallion of the Pittsburg Pirates. 10+ Months after TJ surgery. He has been throwing off a mound and looks to be trending in the right direction.

OF- Giancarlo Stanton of the NY Yankees- The injury news is great for the Yankees. Stanton and Judge are expected to play for opening day. A lot of HR and runs going to be on the board for NY. The east better is ready for a slugfest.

OF- Willie Calhoun of the Texas Rangers- He was hit in the face in spring training. But he is expected to be ready for opening day. Calhoun brings a much-needed bat to the Rangers lineup.

OF- Michael Conforto of the NY Mets- Now, I am not sure about Conforto and the oblique injury. But at this point. He should be ready to rock. Again with Cespedes coming back, having Conforto is needed for that lineup.

Now to wrap it up. A few players who had a small setback in the spring

C- Gary Sanchez of the NY Yankees. He had a small back injury that was keeping him out a week. But he is good to go.

P- Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals. This one I haven't seen a lot of, but he had an ailment on his side. This report came out in March to be a combination of lat, serratus, oblique. Its been so long, I would expect him to be ready. However, he is up there in age but still as good as ever.

OF- Bryce Harper of the Phillies. He had an HBP off his foot. But it was fine. Giant impact bat for the Phillies.

P- Jordan Hicks of the St.Louis Cardinals is throwing heat again and is gearing up to make his impact for the res birds this season.
