I'm curious about the dugout dynamic of position players pitching.  Does the manager ask for volunteers, or does he ask a specific player?  And if that player is a fringe MLBer, can he really say no?

Hey, he's a first baseman, of course his arm is sore.

Rotoworld:

06.16: Frank Schwindel is not in the Cubs' starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Padres. (Schwindel,
who has pitched in mop-up duty on two of the last four days for
Chicago, will get Thursday's series finale off as the Cubs try to snap a
nine-game losing streak. Patrick Wisdom is at the cold corner with
Jonathan Villar covering third base on Thursday afternoon.)

I saw that live. It's like the ball hits an invisible barrier.

Taylor Rogers had nothing. Schwindel hits the ball just about as hard as he can.

Crowd goes nuts. Rogers doesn't even crack a smile. Schwindel doesn't even curse, at least not out loud.

If you want to see a classic example of the 2022 baseball, check out this game-ending fly out to the wall that, I believe, would have been a Grand Slam in 2021 (and before) ...

I would rather have Soler for sure.

Right, but assume there is 30% inflation.  $15 is $20 (about).

It really isnt obv that Soler is a clear choice at that price, but probably I wouldnt want either at $20.

Just calculated the inflation in my league and suffice it to say, Schwindel may be a keeper at $20.  The bids for Soler and Schwindel are in the same ballpark.  Wouldn't you rather have Soler for the same price?

From a Q&A at Baseball America about how minors are affected...

5. What happens to the Rule 5 draft?

When the lockout stretched into January and February, the expectation was that the Rule 5 draft would happen soon after the CBA deal was reached.

But if the lockout stretches for another month, it becomes hard to see how a Rule 5 draft could work. The minute minor league games are played, it becomes much more complicated. Protection lists were made in November 2021. MLB teams will dread the idea of having players show they have taken a big step forward and then be made available for an in-season Rule 5 draft.

A shortened season also makes the supposed penalty of picking a Rule 5 pick (carrying them on the active roster all year) a smaller one.

If this happened last year, Astros outfielder Jake Meyers, Twins infielder Jose Miranda and Cubs first baseman Frank Schwindel would have been among the players who could have quickly pushed themselves into Rule 5 consideration.
