Here are my personal favorite; based on their valuable ratios and opportunities for high leverage innings: Devin Williams Jake Diekman Ty

your link is appreciated. Your sarcasm is not.   The article is a good read. Wasnt aware of the rotator cuff inflammation. Good to know he is working his way back. Last year it was fun to ha

I concur. Run don’t walk.


Thanks guys. Just picked him up and ready to give it a whirl.

 

What’s the story on this kid and how good are his skills?

 

Edit: just saw that he had 14 Ks, 0 ER, 0 BB in 7.2 spring training IP. Oh and he’s SP eligible. Let’s go

Keep an eye on Sam Coonrod on the Phils. He already threw pretty hard, but I believe he had a velo increase. Dude was pumping 101. Hasn't earned the trust for higher leverage yet.

 

Someone I'll scoop in deeper leagues if he performs well. Alvarado on the DL too.

This isn't very encouraging

I considered keeping him last year since he was so ridiculously good, but anytime there's an injury involved, it's best to punt. They said it was "minor" but no way he is 100%.

PS, very disappointing that Bednar of PIT appears to rank behind even Chris Stratton, who stinks.

Hard to see him smelling any svs unless PIT trades like half the pen.

how much value to you guys put in  guys like garret whitlock in leagues that don't count holds as a catagory?

do you think the k's and ratios are on a limited basis make them valuable ?

Depends on the format. I play in a few leagues with low min IP and categories skewed towards ratios. Guys like Whitlock are golden with the SP/RP designation. I can field a roster with Whitlock, Caleb Smith, Carson Fulmer, Antone, Kopech, Zimmer etc and kill the ratios between spot starts between a few traditional starters.

I am saying standard scoring leagues that don’t count holds as a category..that is the format

I guess it was implied when i responded. Yeah those leagues im referring to dont have holds as a cat but they do lean more towards the ratios....K/9, BB/9 etc.

Its really just a matter of doing the math and what strategy you want to implement (punt W or QS and go for ratios or just boost your rotation on off days). If you roster 3 or 4 of these guys its like adding an ace to the rotation, you just have to stay vigilant on roster mgmt.

thanks for the feedback, i can see what you are saying about having 3-4 guys like this and that would add up nicely, but like you said about roster sizes and potential issues there.  More or less wondering if it makes sense to only have 1 of these guys like Whitlock and if their stats would even be worth having over the course of a season.

If you didn't end up with SPs that can compete *bad draft or injuries' or by design) with the rest of the league at any point, you can 'punt' qs/wins/ks go for ratio's and Sv/hds. Plays very well in h2h, might be less useful in Roto (as that doesn't seem like a winning roto strategy).

True, unless the h2h league has weekly minimum innings pitched requirements which necessitates rostering starters.

Im in several with min IP per week and it ranges from 20-30 IP. This is feasible with 4-5 of these guys and 1 or 2 starters and 3-4 true relievers

For instance, last week:

in one league....Carson Fulmer, Kopech, Sims and Whitlock netted me 10 IP, 13Ks, 0 ERA 0.6 WHIP 

in another....Kyle Zimmer, Antone, Caleb Smith got me 12.2 IP, 12Ks, 0.74 ERA and 0.49 WHIP

Add in 2 starts from a Darvish and a Tony Disco with 4-5 true RPs and im looking at roughly 25-30IP.

Yeah, was thinking about having only me guy like Whitlock in roto league where innings pitches is not an issue

In that situation I’d lean more to gut like Kopech or Antone that’s going to hopefully get you 5+ innings over a week rather than a guy like Whitlock who lols he’s settling more into the 1 inning high leverage role

How are we feeling about Devin Williams? 3Ks and no earned runs in his last two IPed. Anyone think he's possibly turning the corner and becoming what we expected him to be?

There is a lot of rumors in the Boston media they are going to stretch Whitlock out and throw him in the rotation. His last 2 & 2/3rd inning appearance already supports that...

He's a stud though. He's a sneaky add that you can probably get for cheap due to a very small track record.
