    Definitely starting. Confidence is at a 7/10, I like what I've seen from him so far despite mixed results
  2. Danny Duffy 2018 Outlook

    This is definitely speculation, but I think he's dealing with his own demons. He was arrested for a DUI last year at 7pm in a Burger King drive thru. That's not your everyday drunk driving, that sounds like someone who has a problem. Hopefully he's getting the help he needs
  3. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    Great breakdown. Still think he's one of the best buy lows around.

    36 games at 2B, 1 at DH so far

    It's easy to forget with his amazing power that he's a lock for hitting .300. He's shown the ability to hit for a high BABIP too because of his excellent contact skills and batted ball profile. So even with his .413 BABIP now, that may only drop .30 points or so. His xBABIP is .380 right now. 54.3% Hard contact rate (1st among qualified hitters) 4.3% Soft contact rate (1st among qualified hitters)

    There he goes again 2/5 2 Runs and a solo job. He might be a top 20 player this year if he can stay healthy
  7. CJ Cron 2018 Outlook

    Correct. In the "Feed" tab they have statcast data for all batted balls

    You love to see it. Always a fan of his power potential. Maybe we have this year's Lomo?

    I only brought up the IFFB% because I saw how his K% wasn't very high and his BABIP was consistently above his BA. It's unusual to see. I did also hear that the IFFB% may be calculated differently in MiLB. So please take what i said with a grain of salt. As frankly, I don't know enough about how IFFB% translate from the PCL to MLB.
  10. Franmil Reyes 2018 Outlook

    Has anyone brought up his high IFFB%? It's very concerning IFFB% might as well be a K for batting average purposes. This is going to limit his batting average potential tremendously. Here are the 2017 leaders in IFFB% and their respective BA. You'll see his FB% is lower than everyone one else on that list too. That PCL 41.2% HR/FB ratio is not sustainable. I'll keep an eye on him but really not expecting much from him. I think he'll be back in El Paso soon to be honest.

    He's on pace for an absurd 71 SB. I don't think we'll see this pace continue but I do see some encouraging signs. He's stealing bases much more efficiently this season. He had his 3rd CS last night after an overturned replay on a swipe of 3rd base. Another one of his CS was on an attempt at stealing home. I think he will easily surpass 30 bags with the possibility of 40 this year. (50 wouldnt shock me). He's doing it more efficiently this year so why would the manager let him stop. Plus, now that he's batting ~5th or 6th their manager won't be afraid to let him run. As opposed to him running into outs with the big boppers at the dish.

    Following up on this developement. Type Velo (Max) H-Break V-Break Count Strikes/% Swings/% Whiffs/% BIP(No Out) SNIPs/% LWTS FT (Two-seam Fastball) 94.9 (97.0) -9.73 4.97 16 11 / 68.8% 8 / 50.0% 1 / 6.3% 4 (3) 7 / 58.3% 2.66 FF (Four-seam Fastball) 95.4 (97.2) -8.50 7.16 48 31 / 64.6% 25 / 52.1% 10 / 20.8% 8 (2) 23 / 57.5% -2.18 CH (Changeup) 86.1 (87.3) -9.97 2.23 30 18 / 60.0% 14 / 46.7% 8 / 26.7% 2 (0) 16 / 57.1% -1.42 SL (Slider) 83.7 (84.7) -1.27 0.68 9 4 / 44.4% 1 / 11.1% 1 / 11.1% 0 (0) 4 / 44.4% -0.00 Again we’re seeing Castillo pump his 4 seamer with more regularity. That 2 seamer is not a good pitch. At least not this year. It accounted for 3 of his 5 hits allowed. The 4 seamer however, was dominant today. 10 swinging strikes on a fastball is a lot. That’s really encouraging. The changeup only generates 8 whiffs today. Continues to be one of the best swing and miss pitches in all of baseball.

    I still think he’s a hold if you can. He flashed too much upside to just dump him now. If your league has a lot of pitchers on the wire then go ahead, but I’ve seen too much to just drop him after one misstep.
  14. Domingo German 2018 Outlook

    He’s definitely struggling a bit, Oakland is also doing a great job being patient. They are a legit offense

    The encouraging thing is the horizonal and vertical movement of the cutter seem to be normal. He is grooving more cutters than he ever has according to Brooksbaseball
