Sunday 17th Dec 2017

domingo CATCHER: Stephen Vogt and Manny Pina are the likely opening day duo with Jett Bandy   and Andrew Susac also in the mix.

 INFIELD: The left side looks good with Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia. Eric Thames and   Jesus Aguilar look to share time at first. Second base is unclear with Jonathan Villar the   leading candidate along with Hernan Perez and Eric Sogard.

 OUTFIELD: When healthy, Ryan Braun is a sure thing, as is Domingo Santana. Center   field will be a battle between Keon Broxton, Brett Phillips and Lewis Brinson.

BENCH: The losers of the battle for second and outfield will yield decent depth, with Perez able to play all over the place..

Nelson POD 2017ROTATION: Chase Anderson and Kyle Davies will hold down the fort until Jimmy Nelson returns. Youngsters Brandon Woodruff and Brent Suter should earn rotation spots with veteran Junior Guerra still an option. Josh Hader is a wild card as he looked great in relief, but has the stuff to start.

BULLPEN: Corey Knebel emerged as the go-to guy, one of the league's top closers. Jacob Barnes, Jeremy Jeffress and Jared Hughes are a capable set-up corp, along with Hader if he sticks in the bullpen.

PROSPECTS TO WATCH: You likely know about Brinson, Phillips and Hader. No one else is all that close, except maybe starting pitcher Luis Ortiz, who could get a look if he handles Triple-A Colorado Springs, perhaps the worst park for a young arm to sow his oats.

POSSIBLE ACQUISITIONS: Depending on how close management feels they are to competing, I can see a veteran arm coming from agency (CC?) along with a second baseman since they seemed to have soured on Villar.
