  2. Brewers acquired SS Willy Adames and RHP Trevor Richards from the Rays for RHP J.P. Feyereisen and RHP Drew Rasmussen. Adames, 25, should immediately step in as the Brewers starting shortstop and represents a major upgrade -- especially defensively -- for the Brewers. He has struggled at the plate this season -- slashing just .197/.254/.371 with five homers and 15 RBI -- though he did clobber 20 homers as a 23-year-old back in 2019.
  3. From Fantasy Six Pack by Trent Dickeson: Adolis Garcia has been one of the better stories in 2021. His 145 wRC+, .382 wOBA, and slash of .287/.329/.559 with eleven home runs, twenty runs, and thirty RBIs have made him the Fantasy Baseball waiver wire find of the year so far. His Baseball Savant page supports the type of player he currently is: xBA- .269 xSLG- .528 xwOBA- .367 xwOBAcon- .493 He will strike out a decent bit, but if he makes contact, the ball is flying off his bat.
  4. Byron Buxton (hip) is still limited to "light" rehab activities, per Twins manager Rocco Baldelli. "He’s started to move around," Baldelli told reporters on Thursday. "Exactly what all of those movements are, those are going to change on a day-to-day basis ... so he still has some work to do and some time before ramping up." It doesn't sound like the 27-year-old outfielder is at all close to returning from the Grade 2 hip strain that sent him to the injured list on May 7. Buxton had roared out to a .370/.408/.772 batting line with nine home runs, 17 RBI, five stolen bases, and 19

  6. Late Breaking Bulletin: Michael Pineda has been scratched from Tuesday's start against the White Sox. White Sox broadcaster Steve Stone reports the change. The scratch isn't injury-related and Pineda might actually start on Wednesday. Bailey Ober will reportedly be called up to make the start instead. J.A. Happ got knocked around on Monday and the bullpen might be needed again on Tuesday with someone making his first career start.
  7. From RotoBaller today: DL Hall - SP, Baltimore Orioles Level: Double-A 2021 stats: 3 GS, 12 IP, 1-0, 3.75 ERA, 1.167 WHIP, 23 K The Orioles' first round pick in the 2017 draft, Hall is off to a hot start this season and could find his way onto the mound in Baltimore very soon. Through his first three starts, Hall has posted an absurd 44.2 percent strikeout rate while dropping his walk rate to 11.5 percent from 15.6 percent in 2019. He has had an elevated walk rate throughout his career, but it's somewhat promising early on to see his walk rate down from his 13.4 percent career ma
  8. Enjoy, Kelenic owners...[...] 😭 From Nick Zaniboni at Fantasy Six Pack: 2021 AND DYNASTY VALUE Unfortunately, in 2020, we lost the entire minor league season. Kelenic got to play at the team’s alternate training site. Twitter would update any curious Kelenic fans, and it seems like he did a great job at the alt site. Well, now it’s 2021, and we are back to sort of regular Baseball. Kelenic reported springing training with the hopes of making the big club. He was only able to play ten games due to a minor knee injury. However, what he did in those ten games was worthy of making
  9. That was what bothered me the most. Usually a player can tell instantly if he's suffered a serious injury and their reactions can often tell alot about an injury's severity.
  10. Yeah, Trout's reaction ("looked frustrated and slammed his helmet down") is not a good sign...makes me think he knows it's something serious.
  11. Mike Trout was removed from Monday's game against the Indians with an apparent leg injury. Trout walked in the bottom of the first inning but then came up gimpy while running from second to third as Jared Walsh popped out to end the inning. The superstar looked frustrated and slammed his helmet down as he went down the dugout steps and into the clubhouse. The Angels should have an update on Trout soon.

  12. I think it's getting late early to sell high on Rodon
  13. Our boy was named Prospect1500's Player of the Week in Double A today: Double-A HITTER: Triston Casas, 1B (Boston Red Sox #1) Portland Sea Dogs (6 G, .462/.481/.846, 12 H, 3 HR, 1 2B, 10 RBI) The Boston Red Sox top prospect really loved hitting in Hartford last week as the 21-year-old collected at least one hit in every game and multiple hits in four of his six contests. He posted a six RBI game on May 12th that featured three extra base hits including two homers.
  14. This post from RotoWire seems to back up the theory that a hidden injury was the cause of this slump: France (wrist) will wear a splint for up to five days and take anti-inflammatory drugs during his time on the 10-day injured list, the Associated Press reports. Spin: France was hit by a pitch in the forearm back on April 28, and he slashed .067/.192/.089 over the 52 plate appearances covering his subsequent 13 games before hitting the injured list. There's very likely a connection to his struggles, and the hope is the combination of down time and the anti-inflammatory medication wil
  15. I wondered if maybe he was hiding/nursing an injury. It seems to me that his slump came right after he was plunked by a pitch on the forearm (April 20th) and removed from the game. I was expecting the worst because it seemed fairly serious at the time but aside from sitting out the next day, he was back in the line-up after that. This slump followed directly after that.
  16. From Michael Avallone @MavalloneMiLB : Whatever frustration Triston Casas might have been feeling over a slow start came to a head Wednesday night. The baseball took the brunt of it. Boston's top prospect homered twice en route to a career-high six RBIs as Double-A Portland rolled past Hartford, 14-3. Casas added his first double of the season and singled to equal his personal best of four hits set on June 10, 2019. "Those first few games were tough," Casas said. "I think I was trying to do too much last week. The bat felt like a feather in my hands
  17. And another biggy: It isn't just Jarred Kelenic time for the M's. They're calling up right-hander Logan Gilbert, their top pitching prospect, and he's likely to start tomorrow, sources tell ESPN. Big stuff happening in Seattle, where Kelenic, Gilbert and eventually Julio Rodriguez will be staples. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) May 12, 2021
  18. New Mets call-up Khalil Lee might fit the bill if you have the need for speed (53 SB's in 129 games)
  19. Mets recalled OF Khalil Lee from Triple-A Syracuse. Lee will be active for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Orioles and figures to make his MLB debut at some point during the matinee. The 22-year-old racked up 53 stolen bases over 129 games during his last full minor league season in 2019 before getting traded to the Mets over the winter as part of the three-team Andrew Benintendi swap. The raw speed is certainly intriguing for fantasy purposes, and he could get a decent amount of playing time for New York until Brandon Nimmo (finger) is read
  20. Hall, the fourth-ranked O’s prospect, turned in his second straight scoreless outing after scattering a pair of hits and fanning nine over five frames. The southpaw did not issue a walk and tossed 45 of his 62 pitches for strikes. Hall faced the minimum through three, whiffing the side in the first and third. He retired the side in order in the fifth on six pitches. The 22-year-old is sporting a .125 average against and 0.64 WHIP over 9 1/3 innings this season. He's also struck out 19 in those 9 1/3 innings. With all the chatter in the last few months about McClannahan, Manoah, Gore, Gilb
  21. Prospect roundup for May 7 (mlb.com)
  22. Twins placed OF Byron Buxton on the 10-day injured list with a grade two hip strain. Ugh. This isn't completely unexpected news, but there had been some hope that the oft-injured outfielder would be able to avoid a trip to the injured list. He has been an absolute monster when on the field this season -- slashing .370/.408/.772 with nine homers, 19 runs scored, 17 RBI and five swipes in 24 games -- but his ability to stay on the field has always been an issue. Trevor Larnach was recalled in a corresponding move and should see fairly regular playing time while Buxton is sidelined.
  23. I was wondering the same thing. The timing seems odd unless there's another move forthcoming.
  24. I'm surprised they're doing this at this time. Why now? He pretty much made it clear this was his last season. It seemed they were planning this "final tour" for him. Maddon even gave him the opening day start and sat Walsh on the bench for the 1st 2 games of the season. I wonder if there's another shoe to drop in this? Maybe the Angel's have a replacement in mind.
