  1. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Cleared to begin throwing 15 hrs ago | by RotoWire Staff Ohtani is set to start a throwing program in the coming days following his six week reevaluation on his throwing elbow. After being reexamined, it was determined that Ohtani's right elbow ligament is healing, and he could pitch again sometime this season if all goes well. Although he's been shut down from throwing since June 8, he's managed to contribute with his bat in the designated hitter slot. Expect more updates on Ohtani's status as he progresses through his throwing program.

    The struggle here is whether to cut bait or wait this out to see if he gets traded or regains his spot in the lineup. This is easier in many deeper leagues (where he is so far above WW options that it is almost a no-brainer to hold for a bit) but for shallow mixed it is a really tough call.

    Ouch. I hate to drop the guy but in many formats you simply can't carry someone if he is going to only play a couple times a week. Not sure what I will personally do but that is terrible news. Cardinals do have a game on 7/19 which will be one more data point before the second half begins in earnest.

    Took the plunge hoping the recent trends will pay off for the second half. Don’t have high expectations for tonight, though.

    Career over 9 games at Coors Field he has a 7.11 ERA, 1.624 WHIP and 6.7 K/9. I'm sitting.

    CBS is showing him as returning from injury as early as July 8 and still has him scheduled to start vs NYM on the 9th. Not sure if that is accurate.

    They botched things by splitting the player but not on the DL issue. DL eligibility should be tied to the player being on the DL in real life. If he isn't on the DL, then he shouldn't be DL eligible in fantasy. As far as impact on owners, Yahoo was damned if they do and damned if they don't on the DL issue - either giving people a freebie DL spot for someone not eligible or having the pitcher properly lose DL status despite being shut down for the year. Problems in Yahoo leagues all stem from the botched decision to split which is indefensible but I'd defend them on the DL issue as they made the better of the two bad choices on that item.

    Wow. I'm amazed there would be leagues where no one drafted him given his pedigree and the expectation he would start the season in the majors or be there shortly into the year. That is an amazing overreaction to spring training stats. For Yahoo, I read the post on page 22 of this thread as saying he will lose the DL designation when he comes off the DL. The only reason Ohtani can't play today from a rules perspective is because he is on the DL. Once he is no longer on the DL, both the pitcher and hitter can be played at any time by the Angels. The fact that the Angels will choose not to have him pitch doesn't mean he can't play from an eligibility standpoint.

    It is a crazy year when I am desperate to move him to my corner infield spot but that is where things are! 3B eligibility will be helpful to a lot of people in a lot of formats.

    0-fer day (so far) but still got an RBI and a SB heading into the 9th.
  11. George Springer 2018 Outlook

    Yep. This is his MO. You get some cold streaks and some molten lava streaks. Ends up with good numbers for roto owners.
  12. Miguel Sano 2018 Outlook

    Hate that I invested long-term in him this offseason. He needs to really pull it together. Prior AAA numbers were great earlier this year so not sure what is going on in A right now. SSS and all that but the only remote positive so far is the 3 BB / 3K ratio.
  13. James Paxton 2018 Outlook

    It was objectively painful to all our ratios. Paxton is still a stud, though. He will rebound.
  14. Middle Relievers 2018 Outlook

    Super obvious name but just commenting that Betances has been MUCH better lately. After 6/1/2018, he has given up 0 runs, 1 hit and 3 walks over 10 innings. Nice 0.00 ERA, 0.40 WHIP, 20 K/3BB.

    Shohei Ohtani SP | LAA Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Kicks off rehab by RotoWire Staff (6 hrs ago) Ohtani (elbow) has begun a rehab regimen since being shut down June 8 with a Grade 2 UCL sprain, Avery Yang of MLB.com reports. Thus far, Ohtani's activities have included one-armed swings, running and general strength training, but he seems unlikely to begin a throwing program until after being re-evaluated at the end of the month. While manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that the Angels' medical staff was "very optimistic" about Ohtani's prognosis and said the rookie's "swing is not impacting his ligament at all," the skipper declined to say whether Ohtani would be used as a hitter prior to resuming mound work.
