I figured it was because so many players got injured last year there were multiple “starters” at each position. Since they had the offseason to heal up they’re back. Returning 19 of 22 legit starters should give everyone a real good idea what Beaty’s coaching is actually doing.
@wissox I still can’t believe Rizzo made that trade. All we needed was middle relief and after refusing to trade either of those guys for Andrew Miller at the trade deadline we trade BOTH for a center fielder. oh well.
