oniinyan’s Offseason Plan: The Crooked Number Plan

ARBITRATION-ELIGIBLE PLAYERS

  • Alex Colomé, $10.3M – non-tender, not feeling it

  • Leury García, $4M – non-tender
  • Evan Marshall, $1.3M – tender
  • Josh Osich, $1M – non-tender
  • Ryan Goins, $900K – non-tender

CLUB OPTIONS

Write “pick up” or “decline” after the option.

  • Welington Castillo: $8 million/$500,000 buyout – decline

OTHER IMPENDING FREE AGENTS

  • Jose Abreu (made $16M in 2019), 3y/36M (or less) or let go, no qualifying offer
  • Iván Nova (made $9,166,167 in 2019) – let go
  • Jon Jay (made $4M in 2019) – let go
  • Hector Santiago (made $2M in 2019 on split contract) – minor league deal

FREE AGENTS

1. Anthony Rendon 8y/225M

2. JD Martinez 4y/80M

3. Josh Donaldson 3y/60M

4. Yasmani Grandal 4y/60M

5. Drew Pomeranz 2y/15M

TRADES

Acquire Keone Kela, Chris Archer, Jameson Taillon for Stiever, Dunning and Basabe.

Found our pitching, at least one of whom won’t pitch this season

Acquire Jorge Soler, Whit Merrifield, Brad Keller and Scott Barlow for Tim Anderson, Andrew Vaughn, Blake Rutherford and Andrew Dalquist

SUMMARY

1. Moncada CF

2. Donaldson 3B

3. Martinez DH

4. Rendon SS

5. Grandal C

6. Abreu 1B

7. Soler RF

8. Jimenez LF

9. Merrifield 2B

bench: Madrigal (IF), McCann (C), Robert (OF), Collins or Mercedes

Rotation: Giolito, Cease, Kopech, Keller, Rodon/Archer

Bullpen:  Bummer, Lopez, Kela, Archer, Pomeranz, Marshall, Cordero, Barlow, Fry

Cease and Kopech will be good I can feel it

I think the payroll is like $160M. No big deal. Didn’t even trade Madrigal or Robert, probably should though since they’ll be riding the pine. Save it for trading for an ace or two at the deadline.
