The Offseason: 12/4/2020

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ The day after... Yesterday was the big day as all the news that was happening about nontenders and what the team’s philosophy looks like was coming out. Naturally a lot of that discussion was the surprise over the team’s decision to tender a contract to Vince Velasquez, but there was still some talk about Seranthony Dominguez. Is it wise to keep the righthander on a guaranteed contract to rehab his broken elbow? It looks strange when they cry poor about re-signing J.T. Realmuto, yet will throw (even a measly) ~$720K at a pitcher to not...

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/MLB Photos via Things happened! Fun times (for some)! Well it finally happened. As much as baseball might not want it to, they had to make some news some day. Yesterday was that day as decisions were made about nontendering contracts to certain players, avoiding arbitration with others and deciding that still others were alright to stay in the organization. We saw some surprises, we saw some not surprises. At least the needle on the offseason move-o-meter was twitching! On to the links. Phillies news: The Phillies were among those that made...

Are the Phillies foolish to pin their hopes on a Seranthony Dominguez comeback in 2022?

Photo by Hunter Martin/ If there even is baseball in 2022. As the Phillies continue to search for a president of baseball operations and/or general manager, someone in the front office, presumably interim GM Ned Rice, is making decisions. One of those decisions involved relief pitcher Seranthony Dominguez, who has agreed to a one-year, $727,500 contract for a 2021 season in which he will not throw a single pitch. Dominguez will miss all of next year as he recovers from Tommy John surgery, but the Phillies feel good enough about his ability to recover to put him on the...
