Rookie Update:

Hong-jin Sasaki should have a solid rookie season, playing in Safeco will likely prevent him from getting ROY consideration.

I think I’ve made improvements to my bullpen, I still need to get a closer and perhaps improve the back end of my rotation. I may have to trade a solid prospect to do so. We’ll have to see how the RP’s that I have perform. My core players are still young and my team should be much better just based on their progression. Doesn’t help that my starting SS just got injured, luckily it happened early enough that I can still sign a decent FA to fill in.

Projected Win Total: 100 (2 seed)
