  1. I don't know much about this guy, it is nice to hear about prospects that are off the radar. Just looking at his stats though it appears his K rate is fairly consistent throughout. We'll find out what he's got when he moves up to AA.
  2. I have a slight disagreement. The straight change is good for getting hitters out in the zone as long as long as the arm speed is the same as the FB and there is enough speed differential. The power change is good too with good lateral movement, but you are relying on the batter to chase outside the zone. Circle change, split change, straight, power... they all have their place. As long as the results are there that is all that matters IMO. Thanks for the feedback though.
  3. I'd be interested in what JenksDodger has to say about Calhoun's defense. I know he keeps a close eye on the Drillers. Jenks?
  4. promoted to A ball. I'm excited to see how he does.
  5. He reminds me of Darin Ruf.
  6. Sounds like they outsourced their help desk to India, lol.
  7. He was actually pretty efficient thru 5 IP (70ish pitches), but they pulled him because of a rain delay.
  8. Dante's boy has been absolutely crushing the GCL. 66th overall pick of the 2016 MLB Draft http://www.bluebirdbanter.com/2016/7/22/12241184/bo-bichette-knows-minor-league-baseball Eric Elliott gives some insight below: From what I've read he is not likely to stick at SS, 2B and 3B are more realistic. He is currently on the DL because of an emergency appendectomy. Dynasty owners, you've been put on notice.
  9. Care to share those lists? Those are probably the ones I want to see anyway.
  10. He gets plenty of love from folks close to the Indians, but very little hype as of now outside the organization. He is just as good if not better than all the HS arms in MLB's top 100. I guess that qualifies him as a sleeper prospect. From one McKenzie owner to another, nice pick up.
  11. He has also been reducing his K rate as the season goes on. That is what i like to see.
  12. For a 19 yr old getting his first taste of A Ball then yeah his start to the season was probably average if not better. In terms of what he done the last two months (.812 OPS in June and now .902 in July) he had a slow start (.690 OPS in April followed by a .638 in May).
  13. After a sluggish start Riley is finally starting to heat up. It will be interesting to see what his line looks like at the end of the year.
  14. At 6'5', 210 lbs. Wentz was selected by the Atlanta Braves with the 40th pick of the 2016 draft. Widely viewed as a top 20 1st round talent, he signed for $3.05 mil, roughly twice the slot value. As a Kansas City area product he is friends with Riley Pint. He blew through the GCL with 18 Ks and 0 ER through 12 IP. He got touched up a bit is his APP debut with Danville on 7/22, but the report below was based on that appearance. Guys like Wentz tend to be overlooked because of being passed over due to bonus demands, but there is a lot to like here and he is definitely worth following.
  15. The kid is making a mockery of the APPY, 21 for 44 over his last 10 games... equates to a .477 average. promote the kid already!
  16. In my other league I almost selected Eloy at the very end of our Minors draft in February, but I changed my mind the last minute and selected Estevan Florial. Kicking myself for that right now to say the least. I expect him to be gone within the first few picks next year. Darn!
  17. I expect him to finish the year as a top 75 prospect, and that is really conservative in my opinion. I am just as pumped about this kid as I am Robles to be honest.
  18. I was fortunate to pick him up just a few days ago when he became available on CBS. CBS added all the 1st rd picks to the database at the same time and most guys were as expected targeting the college players. I picked up Kirilloff along with Delvin Perez and Matt Thaiss. I really like this kid's bat.
  19. Thru 27.2 IP in short A McKenzie has allowed 1 ER for a miniscule 0.33 ERA. In his minor league career he has allowed 2 ER thru 39.2 IP with a K/BB of 48/10 and a .76 WHIP. He has only given up 20 hits with 1 HR in 39.2 career innings. He doesn't turn 19 till next month. Helium alert!
  20. I think Kirilloff is going to be a special player. I was watching the draft and couldn't believe he wasn't selected earlier. In my opinion this is one heck of a pick for the Twins, probably the best pick of the draft. He would have been the #2 bat on my board, behind Senzel mainly because of proximity.
  21. Listed at a lanky 6' 5", 165 lbs the 42nd overall pick of the 2015 has shown flashes of brilliance in his young career. McKenzie began the year in extended spring training, and now he has a few nice outings under his belt at short A... picking up where he left off after dominating the Arizona League last year. In the few clips I've watched you can see that the kid has a smooth seemingly effortless delivery while featuring good command of a low 90s 4-seamer, a plus change, curveball. If his performances to date are any indication, then this kid could be something special. http://w
  22. Interesting bat here, but it seems Joseph has locked down the 1B job. Not sure how Philly would get his bat in the lineup barring an injury of course.
