Diaz looking tough, hitting strong


 Lake Buena Vista, Fla. — For the second time in three springs, Matt Diaz looked like a hockey player this morning. Sans a playoff beard.

 Diaz smiled this morning to reveal to me his chipped front tooth. And I don’t mean a slight chip. We’re talking the bottom half of the tooth was gone.

 Or, rather, the cap was gone.  

Matt Di ... er, Gino Odjick

Matt Di ... er, Gino Odjick

 And it all looked familiar.

 For those who might not remember, Diaz’s tooth was chipped near the end of 2007 spring training when he got struck accidentally by Chris Woodward’s bat near the batting cage before a Grapefruit League game.

 He’s had a cap on it since, but that cap got broken Wednesday when Diaz used his teeth to remove a bottle cap. Hey, even intelligent folks do less-than-intelligent things.

 “It was stupid,” Diaz said, shaking his head and smiling.

 Former hockey player Tom Glavine told Diaz that he looked like a hockey player.

 And he did.

 But when Diaz told me what Glavine had said, he did so in a voice that sounded a bit like Daffy Duck, on account of the missing tooth. So much for mistaking him for Gino Odjick.

 Diaz, a Lakeland, Fla., native, is headed to his family dentist this afternoon. The same dentist he saw in March 2007, when he was rushed over from Kissimmee after the pregame incident.

 The bottlecap removal is about the only thing that’s gone wrong this spring for Diaz. Wait, scratch that. There was also the fly ball that bounced off his glove for an error yesterday against the Phillies, though it was a tough play and Diaz covered a lot of ground to get to it in the left-center gap at Clearwater, showing off some speed after dropping 20 pounds this winter on the P90X diet.

 Anyway, his spring has been otherwise impressive. He’s hitting .364 (8-for-22) with a team-high four doubles, a home run and seven RBIs, also a team-high.

 “He’s ready to go,” hitting coach Terry Pendleton said as Diaz was hitting line drives and long balls to every part of the field during batting practice.

  When I asked Pendleton if the Braves would be alright in left field if Garret Anderson isn’t ready to begin the season, he said, “Oh, absolutely.”

  (For the record, Bobby Cox said again that he’s “pretty confident” Anderson will be ready to begin the season, though the veteran has yet to play in a Grapefruit League game after pulling a calf muscle. No return date yet.)

 Good bloke is ailing: Phil Stockman had an MRI in Atlanta on Wednesday, which confirmed he has two herniated disks in his lower back. They haven’t determined a next course of action, but he’s reluctant to get more injections simply because that’s been tried and hasn’t worked.

  At the same time, it’s also been explained to him that surgery, though a relatively simple procedure to shave part of the disks, does have risks, including infection and the potential that it won’t alleviate the problem.

  As I understand it, he and the doctors believe all this could stem from the bad hamstring injury he had in 2006, when he ended up having one of three hamstring tendons in his left left removed after it tore from the bone and wouldn’t heal properly.

  The theory being that the hamstring injury, in effect, threw his body a bit out of alignment and he’s had various compensatory injuries since then. The fact that he’s 6-feet-8 might magnify everything in this situation.

 “It’s very frustrating, because I came to camp in the best shape of my life,” the amiable Aussie reliever said this morning.

 Medlen can hit, too: Among the Braves’ scheduled relievers today after Jair Jurrjens’ start is Kris Medlen, the undersized right-hander whose stock climbed last year soon after he was moved from the bullpen to starting rotation at Double-A Mississippi.

 Medlen, generously listed at 5-10 (he’s closer to 5-8), went 6-5 with a 3.11 ERA in 17 starts after moving to the rotation in early June. He was fourth in the league with 120 strikeouts (and only 27 walks) in 120-1/3 innings, and was recently ranked the Braves’ ninth-best prospect by Baseball America.

 Even before I saw him pitch, I figured he was a pretty unique cat when I was out at the Arizona Fall League and saw this little dude hitting fungoes to Mesa Solar Sox fielders. Not just messing around, but hitting them like an expert, like a coach who’d done it for years.

  As it turns out, Medlen, 23, was a shortstop in college. He could hit. Still can.

 But he pitches better. He throws hard, which is initially surprising when you’ve first met him, this right-hander who looks like someone’s kid brother that’s visiting the clubhouse.

 Medlen has allowed one hit and one run with two walks and four strikeouts in three innings this spring, and he’s caught Bobby Cox’s eye. The manager has praised him several times.

  In November out in Arizona, I asked Mesa manager Rocket Wheeler about him. Wheeler also had Medlen on his high-A Myrtle Beach team in 2007 (Medlen had a 1.13 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 24 innings for that Myrtle team).

  “Jim [Fregosi] asked me the other day, do you like him better as a starter or reliever,” Wheeler said, recalling a conversation with the Braves special assistant and top scout. “I said I haven’t seen him as a starter. He’s a reliever for me for about three weeks [in 2007], then he goes to Double-A and I haven’t seen him since [until the Fall League].

  “He’s got a great changeup, spots his fastball very well, and got a good curveball to go with it. He gets in trouble when he hangs it, but that’s like any pitcher.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

 “He’s a very fierce competitor, and probably one of the best athletes on the team. He hit .308 in Mississippi when he got to hit.”

 Gonzo goes today: We’re also scheduled to see closer Mike Gonzalez make his third appearance of the spring. He was clocked at 92 mph in his last outing, up a few ticks from his spring debut.

  Gonzalez said 88-91 mph in spring training is normal for him, always has been. He said he’s had no problems with his surgically repaired elbow and he’s jacked up, excited, about the season and being healthy for the first time in a few years.

 Among NL leaders: Before today, Tommy Hanson and Derek Lowe were tied for fifth in the NL with nine strikeouts, and Jo-Jo Reyes was second in innings (13) and 10th in ERA (2.08)…. Yunel Escobar’s .444 average ranked sixth among NL leaders in Florida, and Matt Diaz was fourth in slugging percentage (.682) and tied for second in doubles (four)…. Braves starting pitchers had a 1.55 ERA in the past six games, with 12 hits, four runs, six walks and 22 strikeouts in 23-2/3 innings. Hanson is scheduled to face the Marlins on Friday in Jupiter, Fla.

 OK, game’s about to start: So let’s take this out with a tune from Waylon’s seminal outlaw-country album, Honky Tonk Heroes, which might just be the greatest country album ever. If you don’t own it … why?

 

“YOU ASKED ME TO” by Billy Joe Shaver & Waylon Jennings

Long ago and far away
In my ol’ common labor shoes
I turned the world all which a way
Just because you asked me to.

Like unto no other
Feel simple love is simple true
There’s no end to what I’d do
Just because you asked me.

Let the world call me a fool
But if things are right with me and you
That’s all that matters
And I’ll do anything you asked me to.

Knowing how much I love you
And after all that I’ve been through
I’d turn and walk away from you
Just because you asked me to.
(Lord. I hope you’ll never do.)

Let the world call me a fool
But if things are right with me and you
That’s all that matters
And I’ll do anything you asked me to.

Jurrjens watched the Netherlands’ upset of the Dominican Republic Tuesday on the internet at the vacation home he’s staying at in Orlando. Needless to say, he was excited.

“I don’t know how come my neighbors didn’t call the cops on me,” he said, referring to all the noise he made in the late innings.

Bowman said he saw Logan this morning, and he had his hand wrapped in guaze. Asked him what happened, and Logan responded “nothing, he just did that a lot in the mornings” Bowman concluded lefties just walk a different line than most.

Bowman also said Garret said that his leg was progressing well. He raised his leg up…and later reached down to pick up his keys. Maybe he’ll be back sooner rather than later.

Yes, there are “ifs”, but are the ifs worse than what happened last year? I doubt it, but it is possible. I certainly have no problem recognizing the ifs, but I do have a problem with ignoring that last year we did not have the back end of our bullpen, essentially, at all since Gonzo was not 100% even when he came back. So, yes there are ifs, but on the other hand there is a good chance that we will get much more from the back end “prospects” than we did last year. And, too, should not be ignored.

Regarding G Anderson, it may take a while before he is 100%. Calves are interesting muscles. They can feel pretty good but not yet be completely healed. So it would be wise that even when it gives him no pain, they let him continue to rehab before putting it to the test. If they do, since he has said that this is a first, it probably won’t be an ongoing problem.

When in my mid 40’s I pulled one of my calf muscles because I tried to do a hurry workout and did not warm up properly. (As David said, even if someone has intelligence, or some measure thereof, they still can do stupid things.) I had over 600# on the calf raise machine and “pow”. I rehabbed it slowly and did not set it for 2 months. Since then I have been able to do well over 600# without any problems. I say all of that to say that even at his age, this does not mean he will always have trouble with the calf.

“Remember what Andruw used to do with hanging breaking balls?” one scout said. “Even when his rear end came flying out, he could hit the ball a long way. He can still hit a mistake now, but it’s basically the same stuff we’ve been seeing the last couple of years.”

Even Jones’ defense is suspect these days. One scout said Jones’ bat speed is still adequate, but wondered if he has a vision problem.

“He’s not tracking balls well in the outfield, and he’s swinging and missing at some pitches by a foot,” the scout said.

i know anders is gone, but i want repost this, to make sure he sees it when he comes back.

anders Not to mention one of your so called innings eaters, Glavine, can’t get on the mound yet and can we let Kawakami throw in the MLB for a couple of months before we pencil him in at 180 to 200 innings?

why cant you realize that if we get 200 innings out of vazquez and lowe (almost a given) that will be 2 more guys than we had do that last year? not even counting glavine and kawakami, weve probably got around 100 more innings coming from our guys now than we did from any two guys from last year, not counting jurjens. look at this:

2008:

jurjens 188ip
campillo 158ip
reyes 113ip
morton 74ip
hampton 78ip

those were our top guys. lets just modestly project our 5 this year.

lowe 200ip
vazquez 200ip
jurjens 180ip
kawakami 150ip
glavine 100ip

the first group totaled 611 innings. the second group will total 830 innings. thats a 200 innings difference, and also a modest estimate. if you dont think that will make a HUGE impact on the bullpen all by itself…well then youre lying.

Jurrjens hasn’t looked too good this spring. I really hope he avoids a sophomore slump.

Amazing how Hewiett was a great coach just 5 years ago, now he is a bum? Part of the problem is that he has recruited certain guys who leave after one year. Crittenton should still be there IMO, and Favors already said he is one and done. The GT fans should take some blame too with their attendance. Hard to create a hostile enviroment with 2500 people, half of which are wearing sweater vest. Hewiett is to blame some, but not all, of GT woes.

I threw out a chick from LF at first at a soft ball tourney once. Kinda felt bad. Not like i was playing that close up…we had to play behind cones when the girls hit so we couldn’t all be rovers. She hit it pretty hard. I just charged it strong, got a nice one hopper, bunny-hopped, and threw a bullet to first.

Dukeboy—I would love to see Lon Kruger from UNLV come to GT if they could pry him lose. Though I wonder if he burned some bridges when he was with the Hawks.

B. Jones hit a liner that SS Guzman leaped to snag, robbing him of a hit.
