  10. He was just dropped in my somewhat shallow 14 teamer. Digging into his FG page to try to figure out what’s going on here. Only good news I see is that he’s not walking guys at any alarming rate. His FIP is also a “not atrocious” 4.76. Unfortunately, the Reds probably aren’t trading for Andrelton Simmons, so the defense is what it is for fantasy purposes. His GB, FB, LD & hard hit rates all look more similar to his 2018, where he was not good, but not this bad. Looking at his pitch mix, he’s throwing that change quite a bit more and the FB & slider less. The SL grades o

  16. If you want an actual example of behind-the-woodshed, check out Castillo’s start tonight. The kid looked really impressive - even his line looked good. No walks, one more hit than IP, one more K than IP. He obviously was battling nerves - but got more comfortable as he settled into his outing. They may have waited a tad too long to introduce his secondaries - but giving up two long balls to two of the best sluggers in the game is no cause for shame.

  17. Alright can't wait for some of you guys to be like who the hell is this lol. He first really popped on my radar after his first AAA start this year where he dominated batters with a 5 2/3IP 3H 1ER 2BB 10K line. I was throughly impressed with this kid last night & I think he sticks up in the big league as long as he continues to perform. The 4th / 5th spots in the Marlins rotation have been a huge sore spot. Cody Poteet put up a 36% CSW last night & 16.9 SWSTR% in his first MLB start 5IP 4H 2ER 0BB 6K . (17% SWSTR in his AAA start this year) So who the hell is Cody P

  20. I laughed out loud when I saw Jarred Kelenic had his own thread on Edge Forums. The guy has officially made it. He is a little skidmark on the fantasy scene. Speaking of skidmarks that is one way of describing his statistical performance this season. Although pile of s*** would probably be more articulate. Probably the worst "hitter" I have ever seen. If I was a teammate of Jarred’s I would treat him hitting the ball out of the infield almost as a walk off HR. Just shower the guy with a ton of high fives in the dugout.

  25. Since your first post this week Vlad is OPSing like 2000. Homered in 4/6 games. 2 3 hit games, another double today. Whatever. Quadrupling down on your take. If you want to quintuple it, have fun. Most everyone in this thread seems to understand. the ebbs and flows of baseball stats. Vlad came into today was the 5th best hitter per WRC+, i think a homer and a double could potentially push that up to #2 behind Trout after today. These numbers will come down, but for someone who "was going the wrong way" in May and hitting too many grounders, he has a better WRC+ for this year than

  29. The mistake people make with Cleveland is assuming they want their best RP to be closer. Karinchak is their best RP and it isn’t that close. He might be the best RP in baseball. He has a 0.52 ERA, 0.46 WHIP, and strikes out more than half the batters he faces. Clase is really good too, and his 71.7% groundball rate is crazy, but If this was a competition Karinchak would’ve won by now. Karinchak is better at putting out fires because of the whiffs. Runners can score on a weak groundball. Clase is best when he starts with bases empty, and if a seeing-eye single or two gets through it’s

  34. He's just over .900 OPS over the last three weeks and over .1100 over the past week. 7 walks against 10 K's over 3 weeks. Encouraging.

  35. That's the question we're all asking. At this point I'd probably say Doolittle has the longest road to the job, but I can see a real argument for each of them. If you can hold them, I'd say grab one at random and cross your fingers. The cost is relatively low, but not zero - that roster spot could be going to some other player breaking out on the ww. Maybe you could have grabbed Cease or Rodon while these clowns keep blowing their chance to be closer. Maybe you could have grabbed some other flavor of the week who fizzled out within days. The team clearly wanted Amir to take the job to op

  36. Encouraging...for who exactly? Dr. James Andrews?
    6 points
  37. What? He threw 147.2 IP in 2017 across 3 minor league levels, 133.1 IP in AA in 2018 and 171.1 IP in 2019 between AAA and MLB. Obviously 2020 was shortened but he didn’t miss a start. Likely headed for TJ now but this is really the first year he’s had injury problems as a pro. He’ll have a spot saved for him in the Arizona rotation whenever he returns, even if it’s 2023.

  40. It’s been pretty well established by people on this forum who know pitching better than me that by some definitions he actually has 4 pitches: FB, 2 sliders (one more like a curve) and a show me change up. So I don’t buy the 2 pitch thing anymore and neither should you. the health thing is a bit different and I kind of agree with you there. I’d probably take a sell high if it fell on my lap for a real ace but unlikely I can swing that.

  41. Huascar Ynoa vs PHI (W) – 6.0 IP, 1 ER, 4 Hits, 1 BBs, 6 Ks – 10 Whiffs, 30% CSW, 92 pitches. THIS JUST IN. Ynoa is still dope. 51% sliders for 45% CSW while his four-seamer sat 97 mph and earned all the outs. There it is, that’s the story and the man can’t be stopped. And now he gets the Brewers and Pirates?! Yessssss. https://www.pitcherlist.com/great-dane/

  46. He does not need any more seasoning. The dude has proven beyond any doubt that he is a major league bat. There is nothing he or the White Sox would gain with him going back to the minors. Look at it more from real life value vs fantasy value. 261/350/364 with elite exit velo, double digit walk rate, <24% k rate, and 0.4 WAR through his first 22 games in MLB. All while learning a new position. And he's also performed measurably better week to week. As someone already mentioned he's getting more loft now than the first few weeks and some of his hard hit balls are flying over the infield
