CLEARWATER [url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-curt-schilling-jersey]Curt Schilling Jersey[/url] , Fla. (AP) — , four-year contract, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for this week.The 25-year-old right-hander set career bests last year when he was a first-time All-Star, going 17-6 with a 2.37 ERA. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2021 season..“I think Aaron Nola brings a preparation we can all look up to and our other players can emulate,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said Wednesday. “I think his between-the-lines competitiveness is off the charts. He’s such a fighter, he’s such a grinder, he’s such a battler.”Under a deal announced Wednesday, Nola gets a $2 million signing bonus, $4 million this year, $8 million in 2020 [url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-luis-gonzalez-jersey]Luis Gonzalez Jersey[/url] , $11.75 million in 2021 and $15 million in 2022. Philadelphia has a $16 million team option for 2023 with a $4.25 million buyout.“He doesn’t want any of the attention, he doesn’t want the spotlight on him,” Kapler said. “He just wants to compete, compete, compete. That’s what he’s done and that’s why he’s one of the two or three best pitchers in the National League over the course of the last couple of years.”Eligible for arbitration for the first time, Nola had asked for a raise from $573,000 to $6.75 million and the Phillies had offered $4.5 million. Nola is to discuss the deal Thursday.Among the more than 175 players who were eligible for arbitration this year, Nola is the first to get a deal of more than one guaranteed season. Arizona left-hander T.J. MacFarland and Milwaukee catcher Manny Pina agreed to contracts that included 2020 club options.ARRIETARight-hander Jake Arrieta had left knee surgery last month. Kapler described the surgery as minor and said it was a meniscus cleanup with no structural issues.Kapler said Arrieta already has pitched off a mound and the team expects him to be ready for the regular season.“We’re just going to be smart about his running and cutting progression,” Kapler said.TRAINER’S ROOMRight-hander Jerad Eickhoff had carpal tunnel surgery on Oct. 1 and recently had a follow-up visit where it was determined he was not a candidate for further surgery. Kapler said Eickhoff will throw a bullpen session next week and be re-evaluated.“I think he’s had so much adversity over the last 12-18 months,” Kapler said. “He just wants to feel 100 percent so he continues to strive toward that goal.”Outfielder Aaron Altherr had surgery on his right foot at the end of the season and was immobilized for six weeks. Kapler said Altherr is gradually building toward running and he is expected to be ready for the start of the season.SEEING BOTH SIDESKapler says he doesn’t have any strong feeling either way on the proposed rule change that will would force a pitcher to face three batters in an inning or get the final out.“It’s fun to be able to mix and match and use one reliever to come in and get a guy out [url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-gregor-blanco-jersey]Gregor Blanco Jersey[/url] ,” he said. “But if the rule was the same for everybody there are things that would work well for our roster.”Kapler said that David Robertson and Tommy Hunter are two relievers he thinks can have equal success against righties or lefties.THIRD BASE BATTLEKapler said Maikel Franco and Sean Kingery could be competing to start at third.“There is some competition at third base,” Kapler said. “And that’s a conversation I’ll have with Maikel and Scott.” As we head into the final weeks of the fantasy baseball season we must continue to work the waiver wire as rosters expand after September 1. Many of the prospects that will get promoted have already seen some big league action.However, it’s still important to monitor their progress and determine if they can help improve your team. There’s still plenty of talent on league waiver wires. We’ll identify players who can steal bases, and we’ll also introduce you to a closer who’s owned in less than 25 percent of fantasy leagues.PLAYERS TO PICK UPLUIS URIAS, 2B/SS, San Diego Padres (23 percent owned in CBSSports.com leagues) – Urias will be batting close to the top of the Padres lineup as their starting second baseman for the rest of the season. Urias can hit for average, as his .306 career minor league batting average suggests, and he could also potentially help you in the stolen base category.AMED ROSARIO, SS, New York Mets (45 percent) – Rosario is another infielder who can provide a boost in batting average and stolen bases. He got off to a slow start but is batting .329 with five stolen bases in his last 19 games.ROMAN QUINN [url=http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-blake-parker-jersey]Blake Parker Jersey[/url] , OF, Philadelphia Phillies (6 percent) – Quinn has stolen at least 30 bases in five different minor league seasons and he’s been a fixture in the Phillies lineup for the past few weeks. He’s batting .369 and has a .388 OBP in 27 games for the Phillies this season.TREVOR HILDENBERGER RP, Minnesota Twins (22 percent) – It isn’t often that fantasy baseball players can find a closer on the waiver wire this late in the season, but since Aug. 11, Hildenberger has notched a win and converted all five of his save opportunities.TWO-START PITCHERS TO STREAMMATT HARVEY, SP, Cincinnati Reds (50 percent) – Harvey has a 3.18 ERA and has struck out 24 batters over his last 23 IP. He has favorable matchups against the Pirates and Padres next week.JOEY LUCCHESI, SP, San Diego Padres (53 percent) – Lucchesi’s ERA is actually better when he pitches on the road (2.89 on the road vs. 3.97 home ERA). He’s a strikeout pitcher who has road matchups next week against the Diamondbacks and Reds.JAKOB JUNIS, SP [url=http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-cj-wilson-jersey]CJ Wilson Jersey[/url] , Kansas City Royals (40 percent) – Junis has a 2.32 ERA in his last five starts, striking out 33 batters in 31 innings while walking just five. He takes on the Indians and later has a winnable start against the Twins next week.HITTERS TO STREAMCOLIN MORAN 1B/3B, Pittsburgh Pirates (17 percent) – Moran has been getting consistent at bats and he’s made them count. He’s batting .333 over the past two weeks. He takes on the Braves to start the weekend but finishes next week with a juicy matchup against the Reds, against whom he’s batted .317 with three home runs on the season.MIKIE MAHTOOK, OF, Detroit Tigers (1 percent) – Baseball fans sometimes forget that Mahtook was a first round pick in baseball’s 2011 amateur draft. He’s got skills and is batting .360 over his last seven games. He ends next week with a three-game set against a soft White Sox pitching staff.JOEY WENDLE 2B/OF, Tampa Bay Rays (28 percent) – Wendle is batting .333 with five stolen bases over the past month. He ends the week against the Blue Jays, who have a league worst 7.59 ERA over the past week.
