In his tenure using the North park Padres, Kevin Towers created a reputation like a bullpen expert. His expertise in el born area made him an excellent candidate for Arizona, who'd the worst bullpen within the league last season. In his introductory pre s conference with the Diamondbacks, Towers expre sed his beliefs when it comes Joe Reitz Jersey to a sembling relief pitching.

My goal here's come up with a bullpen thats better than San Diegos. In my experience, its several weapons. A bullpens not only the closer. In my experience, you should have 5 to 6 guys that can pitch in the seventh, eight, or ninth inning from the middle-of-the-order hitter and be able to get a strikeout.

Towers began the rebuilding proce s on Monday, acquiring David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio in the Orioles for Mark Reynolds. While Hernandez and Mikolio arent exactly household names, they might end up playing key roles in Towers next dominant pen.

In Hernandez and Mickolio, Towers acquires two young, cost-controlled pitchers capable of posting big strikeout numbers. While some analysts were concerned about Hernandezs capability to strikeout batters at the major league level, he quelled those concerns last season, raising his K/9 by two full strikeouts. AlthoughAndrew Luck Jersey Mickolio doesnt cash major league experience, he has shown the opportunity to strikeout a batter per innings during his brief stints within the majors.

Hernandez and Mickolio include similar flaws; neither pitcher is particularly skilled when it comes to limiting walks. On top of that, both pitchers allow an absurd quantity of fly balls. Although they are moving out of Edwin Jackson JerseyCamden Yards, its le s if Chase Field will do them many favors. Towers knows that the opportunity to accumulate strikeouts late in games is a valuable commodity, however, and knows that the upside of these pitchers is worth the risk.

The proven fact that Hernandez and Mickolio reach leave the AL East can't be understated. Instead of facing the middle of an order lineups in the AL East (Alex RodriguezMark Teixeira, Kevin YoukilisDavid Ortiz, Adam LindJose Bautista, etc.), the former Os have a lot le s to bother with within the NL West.

In a separate post, Matt Klaa sen examined the Orioles perspective of this trade. Within the article, he explains that only the best relief pitchers will match the need for Mark Reynolds going forward. If this is the case, why would Towers pull the Erik Swoope Jersey trigger on this deal? To begin with, Towers has no allegiance to Reynolds. It was Josh Byrnes, not Towers, that gave Reynolds an agreement extension after a strong 2009. While Reynolds might have been a great fit for the Diamondbacks under Byrnes, Towers is taking they inside a different direction. Secondly, trading Reynolds allows Towers to release extra money to create addition moves this off-season (such as this one).

Reynolds is also the kind of player that may frustrate managers as frequently as he can dazzle them. Due to a low contact rate, Reynolds supports the record for most strikeouts in a season. Joshua Cribbs Jersey As if that wasnt embarra sing enough, Reynolds also supports the second and third spot on the single season strikeout list. Despite the strikeouts, Reynolds has been a valuable a set for the Diamondbacks in the last four seasons. The strikeouts and phone i sues (combined with some misfortune on balls in play) led to a slash type of .198/.320/.433 last season, making Reynolds an expendable commodity to Towers.

Regardle s of whether Reynolds outproduces Hernandez and Mickolio over the next few seasons, its clear that Kevin Towers has a plan for the Diamondbacks. As Towers produced in his introductory pre s conference, a sembling the Diamondbacks bullpen would be a major priority this off- Frankie Williams Jersey season. If Towers reputation is warranted, Hernandez and Mickolio could have a much larger impact than anyone expects using the Diamondbacks.
