During the off-season, the Pacific baseball league underwent some changes. New managers were brought in, new players were drafted, and trades were made. With all of these changes, it can be hard to keep track of who is on which team and what to expect from them. This guide will introduce you to the new members of the Pacific baseball league and give you an idea of what to expect from them this season.
The roster is set and the season is just around the corner. Here is a breakdown of who is who and what to expect from your 2019 Pacific Baseball Team
Justin Verlander- Recently acquired from the Astros, Verlander will be looking to anchor the pitching staff and lead the team to a World Series title. The ace of the pitching staff, Verlander has been one of the best pitchers in baseball for over a decade. Expect him to be in the running for the Cy Young Award once again this season.
Gerrit Cole- Another recent addition to the team, Cole comes over from Houston to form one of the best pitching duos in baseball. Cole had a breakout year last season, finishing second in Cy Young voting. He will look to build on that success this season and help lead the team to a championship.
Madison Bumgarner- The veteran of the staff, Bumgarner has been with the team for several years now. He is a former World Series MVP and has been one of the best postseason pitchers in history. Bumgarner will look to provide leadership and mentorship to the younger pitchers on the staff while also contributing on the mound.
Kenley Jansen- The closers role is always a important one and Jansen will be tasked with filling that role this season. He is a experienced reliever who has been one of the best closers in baseball over the past few years. Expect him to be called upon in high pressure situations and come through in big moments.
Pedro Baez- A versatile reliever, Baez can pitch in any situation. He will likely see some high leverage innings this season as well as some lower leveraged innings when needed. Either way, he will be counted on to get important outs throughout the course of the season.
Baez had a strong 2018 campaign and will look to build on that this season
