Metacomet is on a distinguished road
Apparently, Tyler Naquin has been tearing the cover off the ball in Arizona. He's batting well over .300, and he's even getting hits off lefties. He smoked a double the other day off Giants' ace Madison Bumgarner. Naquin has five or six RBIs. I haven't heard yet if he's closed the hole in his swing for high heat.

I've also heard that Carlos Santana and Francisco Lindor have been red-hot for their respective countries in the WBC. Outfield prospects Greg Allen and Bradley Zimmer have been impressive. So was Yandy Diaz, until he got banged up. Diaz hasn't played for about a week. He hasn't looked good in the outfield, which will hurt his chances to make the team. I'd love to see his .300-plus bat in the lineup.

Lefty pitcher Andrew Miller has gotten knocked around a few times in the WBC. I'm not concerned...
