  1. LOL, he just hit ANOTHER. 2 more dongs tonight with a BB and 5 RBIs.
  2. Lux has hit another homer tonight, that's 4 games in a row. He's now hitting over .500 in 14 AAA games. Albeit a small sample, that is still absurd how quickly he has adjusted.
  3. For those hoping for Rodgers to get another chance, it won't come this year. Diagnosed with a torn labrum. Yuck. Bad injury.
  4. 3-5, Another HR, SB
  5. Anything from the Padres' broadcast as to why he was scratched?
  6. Wondering the same thing. They were off yesterday and no news of any injury the day before, unless he's sick or did something during warm-ups.
  7. This was exactly my point in the Spencer Howard thread. If there is a concern about the guy, use the hype and leverage for something you can use and is more 'trusted'. Bird in the hand.... Sure, there are going to be guys that do go on to have successful MLB careers, maybe even studs, but for everyone of those there are countless others that will flame out or not come up and immediately dominate. In Fantasy, unless you have deep rosters that can tolerate the headaches of young pitchers let them be someone else's issue and take a really good piece, or a trusted piece if you can get it, imo, over that headache.
  8. 3-4, BB last night.
  9. Here is a clip of the HR: https://www.milb.com/milb/news/prospect-roundup-games-of-july-15/c-309115648 That is a nice compact swing with some slight loft/launch angle. I like that there is little movement in the legs until he is ready to unload with the swing.
  10. Grandal out because of injury or a double switch?
  11. 3-3 3B, 1st AA HR. Off to a good start.
  12. His first AAA start was okay: 5IP, 6hits, 3ER (1HR allowed), 1BB, 6Ks. One positive to take is only 1BB. 85 pitches and 57 for strikes. (*I don't think they'll bring him back out in the 6th*)
  13. If it wasn't the Mets, I'd be okay with it. Likely btter for fantasy to go to the NL (barring a Rockies/Reds/D-Backs home park).
  14. @brockpapersizer have been following him, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Do you have any data on the fastball velo?
  15. Brennan Davis is the highest I've seen him ranked, but I think by year's end it will be justified. He's still flying under the radar, but has monster tools and has the ability to hit for high average and his k/bb ratios are also really good.
  16. Some lists, like BA and Fangraphs, factor defensive value. A guy like Diaz is limited to 2B, so that knocks him down for some. And as mentioned, he was a highly touted guy a few years back, but struggled with high K rates so there was question on whether his hit tool would ever develop. PCL power numbers aside, his improved strike zone is what I take most from his improvement this year.
  17. 3-5 2B, HR. Hopefully the Marlins can find Castro a new home so they can get this kid up already. Most importantly, he has cut his K rate this year and it has been holding steady and his LHP/RHP splits are great.
  18. 5 no hit innings today. Final line: 5IP, 0hits, 0ER, 1BB, 7Ks. Kid's stock is going to go up pretty quickly if he keeps this up, better jump on the train before it's too late.
  19. I agree, wondering why the Cards keep yanking this kid around. Up and down from the minors, starter then swingman now back to starter. He's probably at least as good an option as 2019-version of Wainwright, they should just take the gloves off and see if the kid and be an MLB starter.
  20. If he keeps hitting he will supplant someone or could be an attractive trade chip. I note they did just move Solak to the Rangers, so that frees up one less MI guy in the upper minors.
  21. They seemingly are trying to get Munoz at-bats as well. They should see what they have in Edman. Give him the job for a couple weeks and see if he can run with it.
  22. I did mention Lincecum as well. It's really only him and Pedro that have found real success as starters at that height in the last 15 years.
  23. For sure, I agree and think it's hard to knock a guy with such a high OBP/walk-rate, but I guess the theory is he could do much more damage by being a bit more aggressive and driving the ball. Anyway, I'm hoping that he does become a fantasy monster. Also dig the LC reference, forgot about him.
  24. Thanks for sharing. He is going to have to prove he is durable enough to hold up over 200IP, before people drop the 'small kid' thing. Until he does, it would seem it's the only thing holding him back from elite prospect status (well that and he needs to cut down the walk rate).
