Chase Anderson in Brewers' Opening Day bullpen

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Chase Anderson will start the season in the bullpen, manager Craig Counsell announced Thursday.

What It Means:

Anderson has made 133 starts over 134 career appearances, so this will be an adjustment for the 31-year-old right-hander. The Brewers will open the year with a starting five of Jhoulys Chacin, Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, Freddy Peralta, and Zach Davies.

Prior to this announcement, numberFire's models expected Anderson to twirl a 4.14 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 138 punchouts over 163 innings.

Alex Reyes to start 2019 in Cardinals' bullpen

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes will open the 2019 season in the bullpen, manager Mike Shildt announced Thursday.

What It Means:

Reyes was limited to just 4 innings in one appearance last season. Depending on how the season develops, the 24-year-old right-hander could potentially see an opportunity at closer.

numberFire's models expect Reyes to record a 3.89 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 62 strikeouts and 28 walks across 62 1/3 innings this season.

Athletics' Jesus Luzardo out 4-6 weeks with shoulder injury

Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo is being shut down for 4-6 weeks due to a muscle strain in his left shoulder.

What It Means:

Luzardo was considered a candidate to be in the Athletics' Opening Day rotation, but now he will not be able to make his big league debut until at least late April. The 21-year-old left-hander is considered a top-tier pitching prospect.

Luzardo recorded a 2.88 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 129 strikeouts and 30 walks across 109 1/3 innings last season while going 10-5 in 23 starts.

Yankees' Greg Bird seeking X-rays for right elbow

New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird has been sent for X-rays on his right elbow.

What It Means:

Bird woke up with swelling and tightness in his elbow after being hit on the elbow by a pitch Wednesday. Yankees executive Brian Cashman called the X-rays "routine" and downplayed the injury as a day-to-day thing, so Bird may still be available for Opening Day. The 26-year-old has been competing with Luke Voit for the starting job at first base.

Assuming Bird is healthy, numberFire's models expect him to hit .232 with 10 home runs, 29 RBI, and 23 runs scored in 223 plate appearances this season.

Dodgers' Corey Seager sails one deep in Cactus debut

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (elbow, hip) hit a home run Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs in his Cactus League debut.

What It Means:

Seager wasn't expected to see any Cactus League action, but he made a surprise start at shortstop and went yard off Cole Hamels in the top of the third inning. The 24-year-old is slated to play in all three of the Dodgers' exhibition games against the Los Angeles Angels next week. Following an injury-plagued 2018 campaign, there's no concern about Seager's Opening Day status.

numberFire's models project Seager for a .288 batting average with 22 home runs, 79 RBI, 88 runs scored, and 2 steals across 610 plate appearances this season.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
