  1. He's back from Olympic qualifiers! Nice to see his name in the MiLB box scores again. Maybe a late summer cup of coffee...especially with the Red Sox 1B woes? 🤞 Casas went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs, a stolen base and an RBI in Double-A Portland's 9-8 win over New Hampshire on Tuesday. Spin: The 21-year-old first baseman had been inactive for Portland for the past two weeks due to obligations for Summer Olympics qualifiers, but he was back in action Tuesday. He didn't miss a beat in his return to the lineup, extending his streak of two-hit games to four thanks to his pai
  2. Courtesy of rotoballer.com There's more to the article today (06/07) and each of the 50 prospects on it is given a brief summary. Some pretty aggressive ETA's here IMO (Casas and Rutschman this August caught me by surprise) Top 50 Fantasy Baseball Prospects for Week 11 | RotoBaller Top Impact Prospects for Redraft Leagues These prospect rankings are for 2021 redraft leagues.

  5. Adell 2-3 with another HR and no K's. Can he REALLY be so bad that the Angels will keep running Ward/Lagares/Rojas out there?
  6. Yes, Garcia's offense is only part of his appeal (the part that matters to us fantasy seam-heads). He's also really good defensively. He's pulled at least 2 HR's back from over the wall that I know of (one was Mitch Haniger on May 27th. Can't remember who hit the other one) and it's plays like those and the diving catch above that have made Adolis a fan favorite in Texas and, really among every baseball fan...except maybe those that missed out on picking him up. The home run robbery is only fair because he had his first Major League robbed by an umpire in April: Texas Rangers:
  7. Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins. Mondesi has not played since Monday after leaving that game against the Pirates with a left hamstring injury. Hanser Alberto is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in his place. A trip back to the injured list for Mondesi cannot be ruled out at this time.

  11. FakeTeams.com had an article today about starting pitcher trade targets in dynasty leagues and wrote this piece up about Poteet (it even references his less-than-stellar minor league numbers): Cody Poteet, Miami Marlins, Age: 26 Peak Projection: 164 IP, 11 W, 3.91 xFIP, 1.26 WHIP, 9.98 K/9 When it comes to talent, age, and control, the Marlins may have the best starting rotation in all of the major leagues—but there is one name at the back of that rotation that is currently getting overlooked. Cody Poteet was called up last month after posting some unimpressive numbers over
  12. From FanTrax today Buy or Sell - Adolis García FOMO & Post, Post, Post-Hype Nick Pivetta (fantraxhq.com) : Adolis García (OF – TEX) Major FOMO here with Adolis García since I didn’t buy into him early in the season. Well, the toolsy outfielder crushes baseballs and keeps producing power and speed. This is a case of yet another former Cardinals outfielder performing well with a new team like Randy Arozarena for the Rays. However, I liked Arozarena a bit more heading into 2020. Can’t say García was even on my radar. In 2019 at Triple-A, García hit 32 home runs and 14 steals with a .

  14. The HR's are coming...maybe not 20+, but he'll hit a decent number. Like jfazz23 said, when the weather heats up the HR's will come
  15. This was just posted today on RotoBaller.com: Trevor Larnach - OF, Twins Recommended move: Add for the long haul. I'm a little surprised to see Larnach rostered at such a low rate, considering that his prospect pedigree, and the fact that he is generally playing well on top of it. He is in a platoon, which like the aforementioned Choi, limits his fantasy value, but he is legitimately performing well with a .228/.389/.456 slash line (142 wRC+), as he is providing good power (.228 ISO) and plate discipline (16.7% walk rate). The Statcast metrics look good here too, with a much bet
  16. I'd take the over on a .265 AVG. by quite a bit, actually. I'd guess maybe .285-.290, 13-15 HR, NO SB's (eh, maybe 1...even Cecil Fielder got 2) with a healthy mix of RS and RBI. Eligible at 1st and 2nd . Nothing not to like...unless you are expecting Rickey Henderson on the basepaths.
  17. There's rain scheduled throughout Wednesday in Cincinnati. The game will be made up on June 28 at 6;40 p.m. ET. Spencer Howard and Vladimir Gutierrez were the scheduled starters for Wednesday's affair. Not the best way to start todays slate.

  19. From Faketeams.com today: 1B/2B/3B Ty France, Seattle Mariners (28% rostered) The phrase “professional hitter” still applies. France got disrupted due to a slump at the plate, followed by a left wrist injury. This is still the man who crushed 27 homers at the Triple-A level in 2019, though (only 76 games). He swatted seven homers in limited MLB duty that same year, but then slashed .305/.368/.468 in 2020. He had a blistering Mar/April to begin 2021, slashing .289/.386/.464 with a .175 ISO. That’s more in line with what I think we can expect from him. Sample sizes are so small still, a

  21. Hitting .382 (13-for-34) over nine games since returning from the injured list on May 24: 6/1 Oak 3/5 0 0 1 0 .600 .800 0 5/31 Oak 1/5 1 0 1 0 .200 .200
  22. I picked him up to hold down a spot when Puk got hurt in my 12 team AL only league . He had a good matchup coming up (forget who it was) and I planned to drop him if the going got rough. He's been nothing but lights out since then. I have no intention of dropping him short of a catastrophic regression or a demotion to the pen.
  23. Exactly! This guy needs some attention! He's beating quality offenses, putting up great numbers and NO ONE is talking about it. 13 posts on this thread since May 8th? There should legitimately be some serious chatter on this guy.
