Host of Spring Invites Looking to be Tribe’s Next Winter Find

Over the last couple of years, the Cleveland Indians have done well in finding veteran free agents no one else wanted and watching them become diamonds in the rough, so to speak. Dan Otero last year and Jeff Manship in 2015 were both free agent relievers the Tribe was able to bring to spring training on minor league contracts. Both had histories of past success but were trying...

Dan Otero making a case for Comeback Player of the Year

Mostly just an afterthought in a sea of offseason bullpen additions by the Indians, Dan Otero has cemented himself as one of the league’s best relievers in 2016. When the Cleveland Indians acquired relief pitcher Dan Otero from the Philadelphia Phillies for cash considerations last December, not much was made of it. In fact, the bigger news of that day was that the Indians also...

Sunday Notes: Jays’ Harris, Irish Conlon, Quirky Records, Otero, more

Jon Harris had a rocky outing a week ago. After allowing just one run over his previous 32 innings — an unearned run, to boot — the Blue Jays pitching prospect was kicked around for eight runs in a loss to South Bend. The reason for his poor performance was as much mental as it was physical. “I was in a funk,” explained Harris, whom Toronto selected 29th-overall last year...

They also quietly made the December purchase of right-handed reliever Dan Otero from the Philadelphia Phillies. Otero is a four-year Major League veteran who turned 31 last Friday. He had a good half-season...

Oakland A’s new chant “Mayday, Mayday!”

As the saying goes, April showers brings May flowers. Oakland A’s fans were hoping that a shaky month of April baseball would bring a stronger month of May in terms of wins and stats. However, that is just not the case. Quite the opposite. In fact, the A’s have been struggling the entire season and now sit in last place in the AL West at 12-19. To emphasize how critical this...

Sunday Notes: Otero, Fredi, A New Manny, Leskanic’s Last Hurrah, Sox-Rays, Joba

Dan Otero is excelling out of the bullpen for the Oakland Athletics. The 29-year-old righthander has a 1.90 ERA in 56 games since hopping across the bay prior to last season. It was a hop with a twist, and the second time he changed venues in a roundabout way. Otero is a graduate of Duke […]
