Who Is Your Darkhorse?

Who Is Your Darkhorse?

PostPost #1 by Tucker Blair » February 2nd, 2012, 12:41 pm

What player is your darkhorse candidate to make the team?

-This player must not currently be projected to make the club.
-They can be a ST invite guy,
-Just not someone who was on the club already last season for an extended amount of time (Example: Troy Patton)
-Or someone new who is projected to make the club (example: Matt Antonelli)

My Dark-horse candidate is Pat Neshek. I think if he is fully healthy, he could force his way onto the club. He was once a very talented pitcher, and has shown signs that MAYBE he can come back to relevance.

A darkhorse guy has little chance to usually make the club, so If I am wrong, sue me!

I would like to say Adams. But it looks like second base is Andino's job to lose.
If Markakis isn't ready, I could see Miller holding down right field.
If a catcher goes down, I can see Paulino stepping in.
Is Flaherty on the projected roster?

I would say as of now, Flaherty would not be on the projected roster.

would you all agree?

I vote Ryan Adams. I think a solid spring on his part makes Andino very much tradeable 8-)
