Is he useable? I saw orioles and got excited...then I saw a 6 ERA.

 

In a points league with a starts limit for sure (where I am using him) but I wouldn't use him in a rotisserie league. His ratios are bad and he has gotten pounded several times this year.

This is a good account in case it hasn't been shared yet.     https://twitter.com/Opener_News    

@Opener_News is a great Twitter resource for up to dat Bulk/Opener news. Has been tremendously helpful for myself having a good idea of which Bulk guys to stream. 

Knowing the Rays id guess Bulk 80% regular starter 20%   hes usually right around 5 IP in his minor league starts which suggest Bulk when hes up

Here’s a game winner. If Tampa bulks McKay, you’ll have a powerful weapon in points leagues. Otherwise you’ll have a great starter. 

 

Good point. Is there any indication on whether they will bulk him or have him start when he comes up?

Quantrill is a good candidate to be one.  He is the long reliever in that pen.  Any time Margevicius pitches he is a good bet to also be on the mound after him.

All-Star Break Check-in!

Below are a few 'bulk' SP/RP I wanted to list off the top of my head. Easy to access if folks need to shift over to this strategy. A lot of questions surrounding the point to this. For example: My 10 team ROTO league caps games started at 180. We count both QS and W. This method will not help in QS but can score big for my W, Ks, ERA and WHIP. I'm mainly focusing on the W and K aspect of this strategy. They are not starting so my cap is safe!

Please feel free to add names to this list, I am having a brain fart at the moment...

  1. 1. Wade LeBlanc Sea SP, RP
  2. 2. Felix Pena LAA SP, RP
  3. 3. Jalen Beeks TB RP <-- Currently in AAA but look for news of him being called back up
  4. 4. Ryan Yarbrough TB RP, SP
  5. 5. Austin Pruitt TB RP
  6. 6. Tommy Milone Sea SP, RP
  7. 7. Nestor Cortes Jr. NYY SP, RP

Is that a random order or how you would rank them in terms of value?

Random. But LeBlanc has been one of the most reliable bulk pitchers of late. I really liked using Beeks a few months back as you can see how good he was in his ratios. I just want to get the names out there so folks can put them on a watch list or something of the sort to track them easier.

Here are the strictly bulk numbers (game start numbers were omitted). Some of these guys are more suited to point leagues but Ive been rolling with Beeks/LeBlanc/Pena/Milone and Chirinos (early on) in my roto leagues and it has paid off big time. 

                                                                

  1. 1. Wade LeBlanc Sea SP, RP             3-0, 2.97 era, 1.09 whip 27 Ks – 39.1 IP
  2. 2. Felix Pena LAA SP, RP                   6-1, 4.89 era, 1.25 whip 66 Ks – 57 IP
  3. 3. Jalen Beeks TB RP                         5-0, 2.79 era, 1.29 whip 51 Ks – 61.1 IP
  4. 4. Ryan Yarbrough TB RP, SP            5-1, 4.36 era, 1.08 whip 28 Ks - 35.1 IP
  5. 5. Austin Pruitt TB RP                       1-0, 5.66 era, 1.28 whip 16 Ks  - 20 IP
  6. 6. Tommy Milone Sea SP, RP             0-0, 3.21 era, 0.82 whip 19 Ks – 28 IP
  7. 7. Nestor Cortes Jr. NYY SP, RP        3-0, 4.78 era, 1.19 whip 32 Ks – 32.1 IP
    1. 8. Yonny Chirinos TB RP, SP              3-0, 3.94 era, 1.03 whip 18 Ks - 25 IP
