Camptown Races, Feb. 23: Out on a limb

With apologies to Ken “Hawk” Harrelson, my Spring Training picks to click:

Left-hander Kris Johnson — I just like this guy’s stuff, control and hard-edged mentality. He’s paid a lot of dues, and just seems primed to be noticed.

Outfielder Jose Tabata — Remember him? He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him (none of that best-shape-of-his-life meme) and will respond to the challenge of having to reclaim his name.

As for the far-off season, Starling Marte is not only the one to watch, you won’t be able to take your eyes off him. The Pirates have brought him along perfectly, and he is about to blow it up. Yeah, Mike Trout-esque.
