Pitching changes take up a lot of time

If Chicago doesn’t trade Jose Quintana, he’ll likely assume the top spot in the rotation after a 2016 in which he earned his first All-Star appearance and finished 10th in Cy Young voting. If the Sox ship Quintana away, the ball is in 24-year-old Carlos Rodon’s court. Rodon, who was Cheap USA Basketball Jerseys the third overall pick in the draft in 2014 out of N.C. State, has shown flashes in his first two seasons, averaging 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings, but likely can’t be relied on as a front-end starter until he cuts down on baserunners allowed, with his career WHIP sitting at 1.416.

As for Eaton, the White Sox don’t have a definite replacement for the speedy center fielder. As of now, it looks like 24-year-old Charlie Tilson is primed to start the season there, as Chicago doesn’t field much outfield depth. Luis Alexander Basabe, acquired from the Red Sox in the Sale trade, might eventually take one of the outfield spots, although he appears poised for a debut in 2018.

After losing Ricky Wagner in free agency and with Marshal Yanda set to be 33 next season, the Ravens could use another high pick invested in an offensive line. Receiver and even running back are options, but Ramczyk is a good value here.

The Bengals’ offensive line needs coupled with Foster’s incident at the NFL Combine could allow the GM-less Redskins an opportunity to get the draft’s best linebacker. If they trade Kirk Cousins, Mitch Trubisky is likely their target.

Pitching changes take up a lot of time, and being that relievers usually have to run all the way from the outfield bullpen, let’s expedite the process; just have relievers hop in a go-kart.
