I'm filling in for Jan Levine this week - he'll return next week after the holidays conclude. I apologize for the late filing. Please let me know if there are any other players in the comments you'd like for me to cover.


Scott Baker - At first the Cubs indicated that Baker would relieve, but instead he started Sunday against the Brewers, throwing five shutout innings. I was all over Baker in the endgame this year, thinking I'd get four months of him. Alas, his rehab from Tommy John surgery took longer than scheduled. I still like him next year as a cheap option if his stuff recovers. He's worth watching this last month - check the radar readings to compare from his pre-injury numbers, if not the actual results. The jump to the NL should help someone that was once a crafty starter. Mixed: $1; NL: $3.
