  1. Garcia is okay but likely doesn't project to be a high-ceiling contributor thanks to high GB rates which limit his game power and just above-average speed that he hasn't used effectively on the bases. Contact skills look solid with a 14.9% strikeout rate and average 10.3% swinging-strike rate but that's essentially his only true valuable tool in 5x5 so I'd lean one of the other options. Drew Waters has been receiving a lot of hype, particularly over the off-season for his power/speed combo. Have seen some 60 hit/60 raw/60 speed scouting reports that have driven a lot of the hype. Did very w
  2. His combination of contact skills + power + speed could make Hampson a consistent fantasy monster in the mold of a Lorenzo Cain type at 2B/SS or like a Jean Segura that walks more.
  3. Currently projected to be the favorite for the vacant 2B gig in Colorado, Hampson is a guy that offers a fantasy-friendly skill set with high-end contact skills, a touch of power, and terrific speed with the instincts to use it effectively. Is he an intriguing sleeper heading into next year? https://www.pitcherlist.com/going-deep-garrett-hampson-the-future-fantasy-rock-star/

  6. MVP of the league while being 2.3 years younger than league average!
  7. Best/notable AAA wRC+ from players aged 21 or younger with a minimum of 130 PAs since Fangraphs has data: Eloy Jimenez 196 – 2018 Travis Snider 186 – 2009 Melky Cabrera 180 – 2006 Jay Bruce 170 – 2008 Matt Kemp 164 - 2006 Brett Lawrie 163 – 2011 Ronald Acuna 162 – 2017 * 19 Mookie Betts 158 – 2014 Anthony Rizzo 152 – 2011 Adam Jones 144 - 2007 Freddie Freeman 141 – 2010 *20 Wil Myers 137 - 2012 Xander Bogaerts 133 -2013 * 20 Kyle Tucker 130 – 2018 Nick Castellanos 121 - 2013 Jake Bauers 120 – 2017 Jose Ramirez 119 - 2014 Francisco Lindor 118 -2015 Andrew
  8. Between that and a positive 1.8 Fielding Runs Above Average grade at both AA and AAA, I think we are moving past him being a DH prospect only. He's plenty fine at 1st and one of the best slugging prospects in the minors. Oh, and he hit another HR yesterday and is now up to 324/.387/.714 with 10 HRs last 26 games at AAA (post-all-star break).
  9. Here are the best qualified full-season level minor league seasons since Fangraphs started keeping track (2006): 1.Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 2018 (19, AA/AAA): 315 PAs, 209 wRC+ 2.Kevin Kouzmanoff - 2006 (24, AA/AAA): 391 PAs, 205 wRC+ 3.Chris Colabello - 2013 (29, AAA/AAA): 391 PAs, 196 wRC+ 4.Nathaniel Lowe - 2018 (22, A+/AA/AAA): 454 PAs, 193 wRC+ 5.Kris Bryant - 2014 (22, AA/AAA): 594 PAs, 192 wRC+ Also, note that Rays 1B prospect is on this list and should be getting more recognition for what he's done this year!
  10. Just wanted to reaffirm that Vladdy Jr. isn't being held back by his D. Not sure why it's being perpetuated (more than likely a combination of his size\build and out of date scouting reports). He's actually a positive defender at 3B in 2018 (1.2 Fielding Runs Above Average across AA\AAA), and essentially would be in line with what the Jays have gotten from Yangervis Solarte at 3B this year (i.e. ~flat FRAA, underwhelming range rating, positive error rate), save for the fact that he has a better arm and is far more athletic.Everything is ready for a callup. The only thing to wait for is the ser
  11.
