Kyle Farnsworth spent his first six big league seasons with the Cubs, the organization that signed him as a draft- and-follow in 1995. He then embarked on a 16-year career as a reliever that took him to eight other teams. Farnsworth ranks 29th all time in pitcher appearances with 893. (JONATHAN DANIEL/GETTY IMAGES)To no one’s surprise, Kyle Farnsworth brought along a cage so Rambo, his 10-year-old American bulldog, could sit in the dugout during a recent charity softball event for the South Carolina Youth Diabetes Association in Lexington, S.C.Rambo was one of his two bulldogs that engaged in a fight during the 2009 season when he was pitching for the Royals. When he interceded, Farnsworth famously was left with several stitches on his pitching hand.Such was the career of Farnsworth,…

HAVE A QUESTION?@jjcoop36askba@baseballamerica.comQ Is playing both football and baseball professionally a viable option for Kyler Murray?—DOUG @HDOUGLASOTTOA Because Murray is a quarterback, I would say no. If he was a running back or corner-back, a job-sharing role might be possible. It’s hard to envision any NFL team being willing to make a part-time player a starting quarterback because reps and practice time are so valuable. In baseball, Murray is already behind in at-bats compared with his peers in the 2018 draft. Splitting time would make playing catch-up even more difficult.Murray has publicly said that his plan is to join the Athletics, who drafted the outfielder ninth overall out of Oklahoma, for spring training. And there are plenty of logical reasons to stick to that plan. Baseball players have a much…

1. NICO HOERNER, SSBORN: May 13, 1997. B-T: R-R. HT: 6-1. WT: 200. DRAFTED: Stanford, 2018 (1st). SIGNED BY: Gabe Zappin.TRACK RECORD: While he was never a thumper during his three seasons at Stanford, Hoerner stood out for his ability to make consistent quality contact. He never had a strikeout rate higher than 12.5 percent in any season. He also showed aptitude with wood bats by hitting better than .300 in both the Northwoods and Cape Cod leagues. Combine those skills with his leadership qualities up the middle, and it was an easy call for the Cubs to draft Hoerner 24th overall and sign him for $2,724,000. His pro career started with a bang when he hit the first pitch he saw in the Rookie-level Arizona League for a triple.…

1. NICK SENZEL, 3B/2BBORN: June 29, 1995. B-T: R-R. HT: 6-1. WT: 205. DRAFTED: Tennessee, 2016 (1st). SIGNED BY: Brad Meador.TRACK RECORD: From the day he arrived at Tennessee, Senzel showed he was special. He batted cleanup for the Volunteers from his first game as a freshman, starred for three years there and in the Cape Cod League and became the highest drafted player in school history. Senzel’s fast track to the big leagues has been slowed by position switches and ailments. Vertigo ended his 2017 season early. With Eugenio Suarez signed to an extension, the Reds tried Senzel at shortstop and second base in spring training 2018 before junking the shortstop plan when he reported to Triple-A Louisville. A further bout of vertigo cost Senzel much of May. A…
