Regardless of my despair this week, there’s still work to be done. Here’s a handful of players you should be monitoring as we count down the days until Christmas…I mean, draft day.
BALTIMORE ORIOLES: For the second spring in a row, Orioles prospect Joey Rickard is tearing it up. He wasn’t originally thought to get much playing time, other than a possible platoon against lefties, but if he continues at his current pace manager Buck Showalter will have to find a permanent spot for him. He’s 10 for 26, with 10 runs, three HRs and steals; a .568 OBP, .888 PAP, and 1.337 OPS.
