  3. Holland recovers quite nicely

    Keith Law

    Texas left-hander Derek Holland, the No. 21 prospect in baseball this offseason, threw two solid innings Wednesday in a nice bounce back from a bad first spring outing. Holland faced eight batters, retired six and walked none, although he ran a lot o...

  4. Hudson signing a great deal for Dodgers

    Keith Law

    The Dodgers' signing of Orlando Hudson is easily one of the biggest bargains of the offseason. He's a very good offensive second baseman who in the past was also a plus fielder. Hudson's defense has slipped in the past two years, particularly in 2008...

  5. Signing Griffey a shortsighted move by Mariners

    Keith Law

    The Mariners' agreement with Ken Griffey Jr. is a nostalgia signing that does very little to push the franchise forward and carries some risk of retarding their recovery from five years of mismanagement by the previous baseball regime. Law chat ...

  6. Nationals' pride takes another hit

    Keith Law

    The Esmailyn Gonzalez story wasn't a huge shock to people in the industry who had previously questioned Gonzalez's age and criticized the Nationals for giving him a $1.4 million signing bonus, but I don't think anyone believed that Gonzalez was four ...

  7. Oliver case frees college players to use agents

    Keith Law

    The Andy Oliver ruling hasn't gotten much play in the broader sports-news world, but at least for baseball, it's a heck of a lot more important than startling revelations that a player used performance-enhancing drugs six years ago. The ruling puts a...

  8. Angels gain patience with Abreu

    Keith Law

    The Los Angeles Angels typically prefer players who provide more speed and defense than Bobby Abreu does at this point in his career, but he brings them a skill they have sorely lacked the past few years: patience. Abreu runs deep counts and sees a...

  9. Nats only slightly better with Dunn

    Keith Law

    Signing Adam Dunn makes the Nationals somewhat less awful for 2009 and 2010, but given their inability in the past three years to convert veteran players on expiring contracts -- Alfonso Soriano, Dmitri Young, Ronnie Belliard or even younger time bom...

    Keith Law

    The first major event of the spring scouting season took place Sunday at MLB's Urban Youth Academy in Compton, Calif. The Southern California Invitational includes the top high school players from the L.A. area down to San Diego, and has in past year...

  11. Tigers throw a strike with Lyon

    Keith Law

    The Tigers' 2008 bullpen was plagued by, among other things, a general lack of control, and their acquisition of Brandon Lyon addresses that flaw. Lyon is an extreme strike-thrower -- 101 unintentional walks in 416 career innings -- who doesn't hav...

  12. Potential top 100 candidates for 2010

    Keith Law

    The coda to this year's top 100 prospects package is a look at one player from each organization who might move up into the top 100 next offseason. The emphasis is on guys who might jump into the middle or even the top part of the rankings, the way N...

  13. Ten prospects who just missed making the top 100

    Keith Law

    I considered nearly 200 prospects while assembling my top 100 rankings, and of course, there were some late cuts and players whose omissions I agonized over -- needlessly, I might add. Here are the 10 names who, for one reason or another, just missed...

  14. Lowe, Kawakami can eat innings for Braves

    Keith Law

    Atlanta's remade rotation should provide a ton of bulk innings in 2009, likely a direct reaction to their heavy reliance on filler starters in 2008 as injuries to Tim Hudson, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Mike Hampton left them woefully short of start...

  15. Uehara might not be best fit for O's

    Keith Law

    Baltimore desperately needs starters -- their rotation before reaching a preliminary agreement with Koji Uehara was Jeremy Guthrie and four guys with the initials T.B.D. -- but is Uehara really the best fit for the Orioles? Uehara tends to work arou...

  16. A's will fill more holes by adding Giambi

    Keith Law

    Jason Giambi appeared headed for a one-year contract from the moment he hit free agency, but there's no real reason he should take one year (with an option that's likely to be exercised) when Raul Ibanez gets three and Pat Burrell gets two. But it ap...

  17. Cubs banking on Bradley to stay healthy

    Keith Law

    If Milton Bradley can stay healthy enough to give the Cubs 450 to 500 plate appearances, his signing will prove outstanding for Chicago. The question is whether his body will permit him to play that much. The 2008 season was Bradley's second in whi...
