  2. Well Trout stunk when he first came up so no you can't assume a future superstar is going to be great from the get go. This is baseball, the game of patience. Not freaking football.

  4. You conveniently leave out that in his first two years of stints in the majors ARod hit 224 with a 609 OPS over 65 games... 5 HR, 7 SB... Before that age 20 season. He was not a rookie in 96 when he exploded, he hit rookie limit in 95.

  5. That’s dumb logic, lol. Wander missed out on an entire year of development last season otherwise he would have likely debuted as a 19 year old. The lost year makes what he did this season at AAA even more impressive. Your expectation should never be for a 20 year old to be great off the bat, anyways.

  6. He's the best hitter I've ever seen by a mile. He makes Trout look like a light-hitting slap hitter by comparison. Put him in the HOF.

  7. Only if you ignore the fact that MLB has used the same empty sternly-worded threat approach before but didn't do any enforcement. This led to a loss in credibility, and a sense that MLB was just covering their behinds rather than sincerely interested in policing foreign substances. Heck, I don't think the players themselves had a really firm idea of what they wanted -- some hitters said they prefer pitchers get a good grip, some managers said the same... It always seemed like one of those things that would just never be enforced, and you can't absolve the league of their responsibility for

  8. This guy probably just deserves to be in deep sleepers, but I'm just going to make a thread anyway. Fangraphs had him at a 40 FV last December so he's not really coming out of nowhere. Apparently he worked on a curveball in the lost season. Not sure how fangraphs already had it at 55, but they do. So potentially 3 plus pitches with a 4th one that could be average. He's 6'2" 240, so probably not any alarming durability concerns. These grades below are from last December, so it's potentially elevated after his strong start to the season. 2021 Report Te

  9. From a raw stuff perspective, he seems right: FA- backed up from last starts uptick, but sat exactly in his normal range (93-94 MPH) touching 95...trademark excellent movement--registered 13 called strikes and 2 whiffs with it. CH- was primary offspeed and sat 85, tossed 13 with 1 called strike and 3 swinging strikes SL- right after CH with 12 offerings--1 whiff, it also sits 85, but moves in such a complimentary fashion to the CH CU- had some great shape, also works well because it is so unique compared to the SL--with even more horizontal action on it, sits 80 MPH, spun u

  10. I'm eyeing a lot of teams in need of relief help and teams that are non-competitive with good relievers on the move across MLB, so let's get into it. I'll list a few, people can add any insight they may have, as this is very speculative by nature. First, the likely candidates, in no particular order, and logical replacements/deep league sleepers: (*-denotes a player who would continue to close if traded) MIA-Yimi Garcia, FA; handcuff-Floro; sleeper-Bender; if the Marlins can move Bass and Floro too they will, clearing the way for Bender. CHC-Kimbrel*; handcuff-Tepera; sleeper-Winkler

  12. Going off his chart, it was an interesting performance and if he's hurting it did not show: FA sat 95 MPH and hit 97!--almost 2 full ticks up from what he had been averaging this year. All sorts of vertical run--8 called strikes 3 swinging strikes CH was pretty flat but did manage 3 swinging strikes on it, threw 9 SL or Cutter depending on who is classifying it, sat 86MPH, usual good action, threw 10 Only threw 5 curves, but had nice 11-5 shape and speed at 80 MPH

  13. June 17, 2021 DeGrom is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his sore right shoulder Thursday, but he said after exiting his start in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Cubs that he's "confident that this is nothing [serious]," Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

  16. Throwing this out there. Mods if not allowed, my deepest sincere apologies. These folks, I’m planting my flag on in 2021. Some it’s based on adp, others not…my most owned shares to this point. I play 12tm H2h 1pt ppr… Qb-love Lamar’s value this yr. I’ve seen him go end of 6 which is absolutely nuts. Rb-love Ceh’s value this yr. he’s creeping up, but earlier I was able to snag multiple shares in rd3. Chubb-I’d take him over many backs that go in front of him 🤫 Bus Edwards love him in rd9 or later. wr-AJ brown—dude played on 2 broken knees last yr and was still a beast. YAC MONSTER.

  17. Just realized I get to see this kid play here in Buffalo in early July, and now hoping for them to get Brujan up here in the next 10 days too. I'm marking the date on my calendar as "Wander v. Vlad Jr. Day" as the stars have aligned for an epic matchup on the 4th of July weekend. Super excited!

  22. Curtis Terry 1B Texas Rangers (AAA) 2019 hit .293 between A and A+ 25 homeruns 84 rbis. This year at AAA he’s hitting .306 10 homeruns 29 rbis. 24 years old and the #26 prospect in the rangers organization. Nate Lowe hasn’t been great and they don’t really have a DH, where Terry fits best anyways. Could see him getting a shot soon.

  23. I am surprised my man J Schoop has no thread. He is killin' it lately. 7 homers and 1.280 OPS in June. 1.100 in the past 30days. After the poor start though, OPS still sits below .800. Hope he gets traded to a winning team and helps some team in the post season. PS, am I the only one who thinks of this song when seeing his name?

  26. Back today and got the win after letting a couple of Sims’ inherited runners score. That’s the good news. The bad news? Sinker spin rate was down 206 rpms. Curveball spin rate was down 306 rpms. Slider spin rate was down 192 rpms. I think he can still be an effective reliever without the sticky stuff (allegedly) but I’m not sure we see the elite numbers that he was putting up earlier in the year.

  31. The fact he was pitching in MLB games at 20 years old is impressive regardless of results. To pull out a 21/22 year old's stats in major league games to say he's not any good, doesn't make much sense. Most guys are fumbling around down in A or AA at that age. There's a lot of potential for this to blow up quickly, but his numbers thus far and how he looked vs LAD are promising. Even if he tanks the rest of this year, this is still a developing young pitcher that's only in the majors because Texas' pitching has, does, and will continue to suck forever it seems.

  32. [...] The short sample numbers this year say otherwise, and its legitimately time to ask if he's worth noticing in deeper leagues. You need to move quicker and react to small sample trends there, because other owners are looking for the same information. Luis Garcia's wasn't a big-time prospect heading into this year, either. Sometimes guys just figure things out when they get some opportunity, and we're trying to foster that discussion by asking legitimate questions. Thanks to BMcP for doing what we all could do-use that thing called Google. Every single time we post we could probably ju

  33. I know this post is old but it is so full of bad information I just had to reply. He was drafted 14th overall out of high school, IDK about you but to me I consider that a big prospect. The kid is still only 23 years old and is sporting a 2.92 era with a very respectable 4.11 K/BB and 9.8 K/9. Theres not many 23 year old pitchers with stats better than that. Will he be an all star? Idk probably not but he's not done improving as a pitcher and he does not suck

  34. Can we stop with this bogus mid season change narrative? It's just flat out false. MLB sent official notice to all teams in the off-season notifying teams they were aware of what players were doing and extra efforts to catch them breaking the rules were being made including analyzing spin rates of pitchers. Here is an article on the memo https://www.si.com/mlb/2021/03/24/mlb-cracks-down-foreign-substances-baseballs-help-hitters This is a long standing rule. MLB issued official notice this off-season the were aware of players cheating and would be increasing efforts to catch them both

  35. "It's so hard to grip the ball," a frustrated Cole said after the New York Yankees' 3-2 win. "For Pete's sake, it's part of the reason why almost every player on the field has had something, regardless if they're a pitcher or not, to help them control the ball." Here’s something to help out boys.

  36. He is still making some mistakes over the heart of the plate, but generally executing his arsenal well. He did work the edges pretty effectively. He wasn't feeling his CU and went away from it yesterday, for some reason...only threw 8 (74 MPH), but did toss 9 nice sliders (87 MPH) with 2 called strikes and 4 swinging strikes. FA sat 95 MPH and touched 97, pairs it with sinker at 94 mph and both move a ton and with distinctively alternate actions--he got 4 called strikes and 6 swinging on the 2 offerings. Highlight yesterday was the CH, had excellent dive and dart movements, sat

  39. I'm not normally into batter vs. pitcher numbers, but in a desperate search for a reason to start Rhys vs. Kershaw tonight, I thought I remembered him doing well against the future first ballot hall of famer, and indeed, Hoskins has a robust 1.458 OPS over 9 PAs, Good time to break out of his 0 for 31 with a bang.
