Surprised not to see a thread for the big boy. Put up 17 homers, 62 rbi's, and a .322 average in only 61 games last year between rookie ball and low A. He'll probably start this year at high A and be up sometime in 2014 assuming the wheels don't fall off. He reminds me of a young Prince Fielder, just with a little less pop.

He reminds me of a young Matt Adams.

This guy is a lot closer to Prince Fielder than Matt Adams. He has big time pop and has been tearing through the minors the past two seasons.

Granted it's been small sample sizes so we shouldn't get too worked up but it's hard not to when

Last year in 245 ABs he hit 17 HRs, 21 doubles, 3 triples, 48 Ks to 37 BBs between Rooke and low A ball as a 19 year old.

He's blocked at 1B. Nowhere for him to play on the Cubs, fellas.

Oh my friends, my friends, forgive me

That I live and you are gone.

There's a grief that can't be spoken.

There's a pain goes on and on.

Who are you to doubt VogelBOMB. His bat will find a way into any lineup

Quick update. Was promoted with Bryant yesterday to Daytona.

Has put up a slash of .284/.364/.450, 17 HR, 57 BB, 76 SO at Kane County.

Power is lower than last year, but reports are he has a better approach. Taking what pitchers are giving him and going opposite way. Obviously, the stick is going to have to be better to get him in to the show. Hope the Cubs can keep him, but likely becomes trade bait for an AL team still.

Already smashed his first VogelBOMB at Daytona today.

Epstein has said before he believes that the NL might have a DH before Vogelbach hits the majors.

Man would that be ideal for Vogelbombs....because he's not going to play the field. It's either DH or the USA men's slowpitch softball team.

this guy is one of my favorite prospects to follow. He'll continually be downgraded by prospect evaluators and prospect listings because of his size, but the bat is very legit and that's all that matters in fantasy

Be interesting to see what happens with him. Do the Cubs look to deal him to an AL team since he's probably best suited as a DH?

How do you view this guy moving forward? Looking at 1B of the future and see him high on some rankings and low on others.

Has lost a ton of weight since being draft, something like 60ish pounds. With that said, he's still 1B only and borderline ok at 1B is about as optimistic as you could put it. He started the year really slow in the extreme pitcher friendly FSL, but put up a .982OPS in June. He's going to have to hit a lot to be a big leaguer.

Yeah he's strictly a 1B. He's almost assuredly going to be dealt to upgrade their pitching, either for a minor league or major league arm. Who knows. He's just been average this year, nothing special. And his splits aren't all that encouraging, .311 vs RHP and .198 vs LHP. I think the best situation for him would to be traded to an AL team where he can be part of a DH-platoon starting against RHP's. Brett Sayre from Baseball Prospectus was pretty high on him pre-season. Had him ranked 39th overall for fantasy prospects. Here's what he wrote;

39. Dan Vogelbach, 1B, Chicago Cubs (Age: 21, Previous Rank: 67)
  • Potential Earnings: $25-30
  • Risk Factor: High
  • Fantasy Overview: Four-category contributor; impact potential in AVG, HR, RBI, R
  • Realistic Ceiling: Prince Fielder with less power
  • Realistic Floor: Billy Butler with less average
Vogelbach is the first name on the Fantasy 101 that does not show up on Jason Parks’ Top 101, and for good reason: He can’t play the field. For better or worse, we don’t care about that. We care that it’s always autumn in Vogelbach’s world, since there will be a lot of raking in his future.

Thanks guys. Sounds like DH or platoon coming for him. Probably better off to look else where.
