  1. Ryan Zimmerman 2018 Outlook

    On his rehab assignment, 2-2 with BB, 3 runs, RBI, in his first game.
  2. Eric Pardinho - SP TOR

    Tonight's line: 5IP, 4hits, 1ER, 3bbs, 6Ks.
  3. Willie Calhoun - 2B TEX

    Strictly LF and DH'g.
  4. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    Hopefully the inept Mets Management decided to watch the game.
  5. Luis Alexander Basabe

    He's on Razzball's Mid-Season top 100 for Fantasy purposes.
  6. Edwin Encarnacion 2018 Outlook

    Yahoo blurb said that Francona indicated he was fine and removed as a precaution.
  7. Edwin Encarnacion 2018 Outlook

    Any update? I'm sure they had him undergo an X-ray immediately.
  8. Willie Calhoun - 2B TEX

    3-4, HR, BB, tonight. Average now over .300 and his OBP is over .350
  9. Shane Bieber 2018 Outlook

    He'll be back up. Indians just using the option so they can bring up another bat for the remainder of the weekend. Bieber has really come out of nowhere this year and it's really hard to complain at the results. A head's up for weekly leaguers, he likely won't pitch in that first series back after the break at Texas.
  10. 7/14 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Not watching Rays-Twins. Did Archer get yanked because of pitch count, injury re-occurrence or his usual suck-a-tude?
  11. Razzball Ralph's Mid-Season Top 100 Update

    This is the great thing about opinion, everyone has one and is entitled to one, but that doesn't mean it reflects your own. Obviously, Razzball's author thinks there are some concerns, or he just doesn't value pitchers as highly as some of the bats ahead of him on the list. There's usually more volatility with pitchers given the susceptibility to injury in this day and age. At the end of the day, take his list for what it is - his list - and feel free to critique it and rank the guys you like with how you view them.
  12. Taylor Ward - C/3b Anaheim

    I think I read in a Fangraphs chat that both he and Thaiss have changed their swings.
  13. Minor League Draft

    If Adell goes 1, I'd go Luzardo 2. I like Jansen, but even if he's close to MLB ready unless Martin is traded at the deadline (which is unlikely unless the Jays eat a ton of what's left on his contract), I don't think Jansen is playing anything more than 50% next year. That and Luzardo has been near dominant and seemingly could be up at some point next season. Looking at the names, I'm assuming in an 11 team league that most of these guys will be gone by the time you pick in the 2nd round. If Ward is there, I would grab him as a 'big league ready' guy. Seems on the verge of a call-up and if he has made adjustments could be a nice find. Let us know how it goes and good luck!
  14. Taylor Ward - C/3b Anaheim

    Personally, I like him too. Besides the above though, he also plays in an extreme hitter's league and park. Jose Fernandez, David Fletcher, Matt Thiass have are all having similarly insane seasons. Is some that adjustment, probably, is some of that related to park factors, probably. So while I'm with you on the idea he's been one of the best hitters in the minors, I think most are going to need to be convinced by a big league call-up and production in the majors.
  15. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    3-4, double, 2hrs, BB. Hard to judge the stats as a 20 year old (next week) in AA. Scouts still seem super high on him even though the numbers this year are not.
  16. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Well, I think a lot will determine how they handle him the rest of the year. I agree with the above, he's likely on an innings limit this year. If he dominates again early part of next season, presuming he starts the year in AAA, I can't see the A's keeping him in the minors too long if they deem him ready.
  17. Michael Chavis - 3B BOS

    To correct my above post, Chavis was sent back to Lowell because Portland is on it's All-Star break.
  18. Michael Chavis - 3B BOS

    Agreed, but he was brought back up to Portland (AA) for two games, struck out something like 5 times in 8ABs and was promptly sent back to Lowell. Not sure if they saw him in those two games and thought he still needed more ABs before seeing advanced competition or what the rationale was? In any event, he's likely back with Portland soon if he has a few more games like this one.
  19. Gavin Lux - SS/2B LAD

    Thanks for the write-up S.S. Thoughts on whether or not he could get moved off SS? Lots can happen, I know, including him being moved in a deal for Machado or someone else at the deadline. He's still a couple years away, but provided he stays in the organization, it would seem Seager is likely to stay at short (unless Lux is a superior defender?) so if he's moved does he have enough bat for 3B/OF, or would he be more likely to move to 2B do you think?
  20. Eric Pardinho - SP TOR

    Roughed up a bit tonight: 4.1IP, 5hits, 4ER, 1BB, 7Ks (2 of the charged runs were the result of inherited runners scoring by the RP)
  21. Michael Chavis - 3B BOS

    3-4 1BB, 2 2Bs and a HR
  22. SP Jesus Luzardo, OAK

    Beat me to it. Add to that he's still only 20 years old.
  23. Dodgers Farm System 2018

    I get Buehler, but seriously, when you have a chance to win worrying about guys like Verdugo or Ruiz and what they 'might be' is really annoying if I were a contending team and had a legit chance to win. What are you waiting/hoping for that these guys might turn into good players in 3-4 years time. At that point, who knows where Kershaw is, what the health of the team might be, what the division looks like. Go for it with no regrets.
  24. Mid Season Prospect Rankings Watch

    Is this a "Fantasy" list?
  25. Connor Joe - LAD (3B)

    Always a possibility. Tommy Pham comes to mind of a recent late bloomer.
