OAKLAND J. D. Martinez Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels catcher Francisco Arcia began the day behind the plate, did a brief stint on the mound and ended up in the major league record books.Arcia pitched two innings of relief and hit his sixth home run in the Angels’ 21-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.In doing so, Arcia became the first player to catch, pitch and homer in the same game according to the Angels.“They just told me that,” Arcia said. “I’m pretty happy, I guess.”The 29-year-old Arcia was already in the record books after driving in 10 runs in his first two games after being called up from the minors on July 26.Arcia also became the first Angels position player to pitch since 1993 Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , when he threw one scoreless frame against the A’s on Aug. 11, but hadn’t done much since.That changed Thursday when the Angels fell behind by double digits early. Manager Mike Scioscia felt no need to tax his bullpen, so turned to Arcia.Arcia needed only five pitches to retire the first two batters before allowing three consecutive hits, including back-to-back home runs by Nick Martini and Chad Pinder.“Just BP fastballs,” Arcia said when asked what his repertoire included. “Played catch with my catcher, that’s it.”Mark Canha singled off Arcia with one out in the eighth Richie Ashburn Jersey , but Dustin Fowler hit into an inning-ending double play.Arcia then homered off Chris Hatcher in the ninth.“That’s a nice little note for Frankie, for sure,” Scioscia said.Arcia has been splitting time at catcher with Jose Briceno ever since the Angels traded Martin Maldonado to the Houston Astros and Rene Rivera was claimed off waivers by the Atlanta Braves.“I just play hard,” Arcia said. “Wherever they put me, I’ll play hard.”__ El Tanque fights to get back on the 40 man roster”WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodCrowd Sourcing Diamondbacks Over/Under Projections: #39 Yasmany TomasNew,39commentsEl Tanque fights to get back on the 40 man rosterEDTShareTweetShareShareCrowd Sourcing Diamondbacks Over/Under Projections: #39 Yasmany TomasCheryl Evans-USA TODAY SportsIf familiar with this series go ahead and skip to poll. If not , please read on.This series of articles will run from now until shortly before opening day. The purpose is to crowd source the D-Backs fans of this website to get a sense of how they feel about the prospects of each individual player on the 40 man roster. For this exercise I will only be using rate (average) stats and poll the readers on their sense of direction for that player’s level of basic performance, regardless of playing time expectations.I’m not including defense and base running, so no WAR here, as that is playing time dependent. You will be given two poll options:The player will either exceed the projection or under perform the projection by 5% for hitters OPS or 10% for pitchers ERA/FIP.There is no middle option to vote on. (Otherwise the majority of votes would end up agreeing with the projection).What I am looking for is if you are forced to indicate your sense of direction for the player, is it well over or under the projection?Other Points of note:Projections are the average of Steamer and ZIPS projections.(Click through for original tables)The projections draw on 3 or 4 year samples, weighting most recent seasons the heaviest , but I’m just showing 2018 and career statsin mini table below for simplicityThe player’s name is high lighted with a link to the player’s Baseball-Reference page.Click on that to see more player history and detailAge is the 2019 player age.Polls will run until mid March, so if you miss a player,you can go to the story stream box on the front page andfind a player you might have missed .Please let us know in the comments section your thoughts behind your vote. Thanks !CONTEXTYasmany Tomas , age Yasmany Tomas has a projection for a .711 OPS. Is he likely to come in over or under ?
