pitching prospect Kyle Funkhouser will miss the remainder of the 2018 season after suffering a foot injury.The Tigers announced Tuesday that Funkhouser fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot while walking on an uneven sidewalk.Funkhouser will have surgery and is expected to return for spring training next year.The 24-year-old Funkhouser was Detroit's fourth-round selection in the 2016 MLB draft. He started this season in Double-A with the Erie SeaWolves Yuli Gurriel Jersey , posting a 3.74 ERA with 89 strikeouts in 89 innings.Detroit promoted Funkhouser to Triple-A on July 10. In two starts with the Toledo Mud Hens, the right-hander allowed six earned runs with 10 walks and seven strikeouts in 8.2 innings.The Tigers could have given Funkhouser an audition for their 2019 rotation with a September call-up. Instead, the former Louisville star will show up to camp next season hoping to earn a spot on the 25-man roster after rehabbing his injury. Counting down to opening day with a position each day"As we count down to opening day, we¡¯ll be taking a look at each position for the Twins, the presumed starter, and the other options in the organization. Today we¡¯ll be looking at short stop.The Presumed Starter: Jorge PolancoWith Max Kepler, Polanco is the other young Twin to agree to an extension this spring. Like Kepler, Polanco is already a key cog in the success of the Twins machine, and like Kepler he still has something to prove. While Kepler has to prove he can successfully hit southpaws, Polanco needs to prove that he can stay at short. Polanco has a good bat for a shortstop, which means the Twins could potentially move him to second or third down the line, if he is unable to defend his position, or if Wander Javier or Royce Lewis force the issue. Last season Polanco hit .288/.345/.427 in 77 games Jake Marisnick Jersey , while missing half the season due to a banned-substance suspension. For 2019, the major projections are a bit torn on Polanco, with Steamer taking the more optimistic tack at .272/.333/.420, and ZiPS being more bullish, at .263/.316/.401, with only ten dongs, compared to 13 or 14 dingers on the other projections. As a result, Steamer expects Polanco to be an offensive force, racking up 3.4 oWAR, while ZiPS suggests Polanco will be below replacement level with the bat, at -4.8 oWAR. Both expect plus defense, and in this case ZiPS provides the higher number. The Bench Guys: Ehire Adrianza, Marwin Gonzalez Joe Jimenez Jersey , Ronald Torreyes, Nick GordonAdrianza has been with the Twins for a few years now, and is a very competent utilityman. Last season he appeared in a career-high 114 games, and served as the primary shortstop during Polanco¡¯s suspension. Adrianza hit .251/.301/.379 last season, and is projected to do similarly this season¡ªZiPS has him at .243/.299/.355, while Steamer has him hitting .254/.313/.373. In 64 2018 games at short he registered a .966 fielding percentage.Gonzalez is a newcomer to the Twins, but came up in the Cubs and Astros system as a shortstop. He¡¯s been an adequate fill-in there for Houston, when called upon, but was largely blocked by some guy named Jose Altuve. Still, in 2018, Gonzalez did appear at short 39 times, and the Twins may ask him to shoulder a similar workload. He¡¯ll likely start the season as their primary third baseman, however.Another newcomer to the organization is Ronald Torreyes. With an option remaining http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , Torreyes is likely to begin the season in Triple-A Rochester. If the injury bug strikes the Twins infield, however, he is likely the next in line for a call up. He¡¯s appeared in parts of four seasons now, for the Dodgers and Yankees, and is primarily a glove-first guy, who has never turned in a season at below-replacement-level. If the Twins are not in a heated pennant race come September, they very well may get Nick Gordon some playing time at short, if not sooner. Gordon hit the cover off the ball in his second year at double-A Chattanooga, but scuffled a little bit when promoted to triple-A. He could force the Twins hand with a strong first half, and be a key part of the future. If he struggles again, however, he may be passed in the organization.Next up... Third Base
