Way Too Early 2022 Roster Predictions

I think the trick to start the season in 2022 is to platoon Hill and Greene in CF and Daz and Baddoo in LF.  Give Grossman an occasional break using the platooners.  See what shakes out and go with the hot hand.  Spend the FA money on a couple of familiar starters and a lefty for the pen.  Extend Candelario.  And no extended trips to the DL.

1. Hill/Greene CF
2. Schoop 2B
3. Grossman RF
4. Cabrera DH – spot start at 1B
5. Candy 3B
6. Torkelson 1B
7. Haase C
8. Krieder SS
9. Daz / Baddoo RF

Bench – Garneau (he has earned it) and the Castro brothers

Rotation - Mize, Skubal, Manning, JV, Scherzer

Pen – Alexander, Fulmer, Funkhouser, Soto, Cisnero, Wentz/Boyd, FA Lefty

Hill is injured so often, but in his defense they are all hustle plays. 

What happened in Tampa Sunday was 100% on the first baseman.   He's not supposed to cover the whole bag with his foot and he always does it and Hill had to lunge at the bag awkwardly.   MLB needs to have a word with that first baseman.      The interference call was ridiculous too............Where the hell is he supposed to run on that play?

When does the 2022 season start?   It wont start on time.  Those two sides are not going to budge.   

 

That could be advantages for the Tigers................keep the inning load down on the young pitchers and let the young hitters get plenty of AAA at-bats before they are needed.   I just have a feeling it's going to be about the time school lets out.

1B: Torkelson

2B: Schoop

3B: Candelario

This will sound foolish, but if they did go out and sign Justin and Max, I'd buy season tickets.  I suspect, however, that my money is safe.

Otherwise, I like what you offer. I'm not quite ready to give up on Victor Reyes yet. He seems like someone with potential, if he can ever get his offense in gear.
