  1. I mean, this is a little bit surprising.
  2. It's good practice not to believe a word that comes out of the mouth of pitchers when it comes to their health.
  3. Just needs to keep stringing some good ones together.
  4. "Right forearm tightness" is the news from the Rays dugout.
  5. Definitely not good. Not many ways to sugarcoat it.
  6. Career high 11k tonight. Number 11 on Kyle Schwarber attempting to bunt with 2 strikes. 👀
  7. I agree. There's such a thing as being too clever by half.
  8. He said he "grade 2" ankle sprain and he partially tore two ligaments. 😬
  9. So the thing about selling high with him is that everyone else can see the low counting stats too. His value seems to be his consistency and versatility and those are not super sexy factors to tout when shopping him around. He's more useful as a guy on your bench to plug in whenever your starters have a day off than as a trade chip.
  10. The mantra for Devers is "22 years old, 22 years old." Things aren't much fun especially for redraft owners right now but it seems like things are lining up for long-term success.
  11. I don't really see the point of him in the majors right now. He won't develop or hit sitting on the bench. Pretty classic developmental catch-22.
  12. https://yanksgoyard.com/2018/05/13/yankees-frazier-supplant-hicks/amp/ While he may not cover as much ground as say, Dustin Fowler, whom the Yanks traded to Oakland in the Sonny gray deal, Frazier’s ability to read a ball off the bat and excellent throwing arm certainly make up for it. According to Fangraphs, Frazier’s defensive grades are as so: Speed: 50/50 Field: 45/50 Throws: 60/60
  13. He has graded pretty high as an outfielder. What's been the problem?
  14. Honestly I think it's the history of injuries and the relative anonymity of players not named Vlad Jr up in Toronto. He is decidedly post-hype at this point.
  15. Good defender. Athletic guy. Just needs to avoid concussing himself running into walls.
  16. I think getting waylaid by something so stupid as blisters/cracked nails has got to be, ironically, really mentally challenging. As a pitcher you probably steel yourself for major injuries like torn UCLs, but not losing years to such frustrating, niggling stuff. I've really enjoyed the flashes he's shown and don't blame him a bit if he's feeling good about it.
  17. The fact that he's a) healthy enough to play on day 1 and b) selected to play on day 1, to me, is significant.
  18. Loaisiga would be the more likely candidate to shift to the bullpen IMO. If German doesn't stay in the rotation he'll be on the AAA shuttle bus for starts when needed.
