  1. Made a swing change right around the end of July. Basically going for broke on power. Stopped choking up completely, not even with 2 strikes. Since then he increased his exit velocity to 91 mph which would be a career high and his xWOBA was .380. Keep that in mind before you draft next year!
  2. He has power and he can run. Plays at Coors. Good enough for me.
  3. If he's still hot on September 1st, I bet they call him up. They're in a playoff race and don't have much in CF. It's dumb to turn down a chance for lightning in a bottle when the margin to make the playoffs is so thin.
  4. Predictably on fire after being traded from Detroit.
  5. I think the chances are reasonable. The Angels FO must know that he's going to put up numbers in the PCL which will increase the pressure to call him up. They could have let him finish the season in AA but chose not to. Maybe they are actually ok with the pressure to call him up because they're trying to expedite his timeline to get up and help Trout/Ohtani ASAP.
  6. Sounds like a phantom injury. The best kind of injury.
  7. Look, when you have great veteran ball players like Peraza and Aquino, you have to get them in there whenever possible. It doesn't matter that VanMeter can hit, hit for power, play defense and steal bases. He hits left handed and there's a lefty on the mound.
  8. 3rd straight game. Hader wasn't going 2 innings. He was just being used for Chapman/Olson and he got rocked.
  9. David Bell would put literally any right handed human being in the lineup against a LHP. Peraza .727 OPS vs. LHP? Get him in there!
  10. If this guy is not a hitter then nothing is real. Looks locked in every PA.
  11. Got some disgusting swings out of the Mariners. Has 5 pitches, all with movement. This guy was throwing like 88 with gas can stuff a year ago apparently. No one seems to know who or what he is.
  12. Ya of course he's being whiny. No argument there. Doesn't change the fact that it's 420 across the whole CF wall. And he wasn't exaggerating when he said he hit one 436 off Sanchez and it was in the first row. If you don't think that's gross then I don't know what to say. He can be whiny and also right. I hope they trade him to Philly so we can see if he's legit or not.
  13. Most players hit better at home due to familiarity. His numbers at home would be even better if the fences were in. Castellanos has a 13% HR/FB career on the road and only 9% at home. He hits a lot of balls to center which is a ridiculous 420 feet. I mean, when he says it's too far he's actually correct.
  14. Has 2 games at first base now at AAA.
  15. Whoever trades for this guy will get a .900 OPS. Last 30 days: 11% BB and 15% K.. .401 wOBA.
