  1. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    Luis Rengifo has been going HAM too. Batting .345 in AA with a insane .449OBP through 30 games. He's only struck out 13 times. And has stolen 11 bases. Total stat line between HiA and AA is just ridiculous .332/.438/.498 66R, 4HR, 33SB 21 years young.. He's going to be a top 100 prospect by years end, IMO.

    Still no one talking about this guy? 18HRs with a .413OBP.. Sounds like he's going to stay on the dirt.. I give him some slack about being 22 in HiA because he played at Xavier.. A promotion to AA has to be coming soon... He plays in the Cal league but Rancho is pretty neutral hitting environment..

    Damn, didn't know he homered tonight! What a monster.
  4. Yordan Alvarez 1B HOU

    Just ridiculous, thanks for sharing! It's early, but damn this kids bat may trump Tuckers. It's a 1B vs OF argument though so that's tough to evaluate.. What he's done at 20 years old in AA vs what Tucker did at 20 in AA... Alvarez ABs: 134, HRs: 9, RBI: 36, SB: 5, .328/.387/.597 Tucker ABs: 287, HRs: 16, RBI:47, SB: 8, .265/.325/.512 Tucker has double the ABs, so obviously it's not a completely fair comparison.. but it's still fun to look at and dream on.

    Astros got this kid for Josh Fields
  6. Yordan Alvarez 1B HOU

    Rotowire has him as the #17 fantasy prospect. Which I would tend to agree with... the potential here is tremendous.. 60 hit tool with the potential of 70 grade power? 70 grade power may be a little strong but this guy is a BEAST and still just 20 years old (turns 21 in a week). There's 30+ HR power in here from what I've read and seen so far.

    I'm on!

    Has anyone mentioned Jonathan Hernandez? 21yrs old in HiA.. SwStr% of 17 and has struck out 9+ in in 5/6 starts and has double digit Ks in his last 3 starts.. Now this is a guy I'm running out to get if he's not owned in your league.. (Deeper leagues) Was in the futures game last year.. I'm super high on this kid.

    Rylan Bannon, 3B LAD - Disclaimer: He's 22 in HiA and is playing in the Cal League I'm not surprised they have him in HiA because the competition at Xavier isn't the best.. He's striking out a little more than I like, but he's also walking quite a bit too.. Now, he was an 8th rounder out of Xavier last year and is in the Rotowire Top 400 fantasy prospects... I believe he's top 200 on that list, if memory serves. He's hit 23 bombs in 93 games between last year and this year, showing a pretty dang good OBP% to boot. 29XBH through 53 games so far this year.. Have not seen any scouting reports, I'm purely posting this guy from finding him on the Rotowire Top 400 and liking his stat line. Keep him on your watch list.
  10. Kyle Tucker, OF HOU

    I would like to know what kind of "swing adjustments" they have Tucker working on.. He's hitting considerably more ground balls this year than last. 1.22 GB/FB in 2018 vs .82 GB/FB in '17. FB% is down from 41% last year to 33% this year. If I was to guess that has to be playing a factor into the lack of power we've seen so far this year. He's turned it on a bit lately, but his slugging is still only at .464 compared to last years .528 This could also very well be caused by an increase in talent level. But I can't help but think, with Lunhow saying he'd be in AAA for swing adjustments, is the main cause for discrepancy in the GB/FB ratio this year.
  11. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    BA put a 70 on his control.. I've hardly ever seen that.

    .475 BABIP, only a 4.6% BB Rate and K Rate of 24%.. most likely Org depth, very few make it with that kind of BB Rate.
  13. 2018 "Deep" Sleepers

    Luis Rengifo - SS LAA 21 year old SS that was recently promoted to AA (first good sign - 21 at AA). Hit .323 with an .892 OPS in A+ with a 14.2% BB rate and a 11.6% K Rate.. Stole 22 bases in 41 games. Doesn't seem like he's going to be star material, but it looks like he's got a great plate approach, some above average speed and a little bit of pop. This is definitely a guy I added in my 800+ prospect league. Maybe not a guy you add in shallow leagues and just follow, but any time I see a young guy like this with an above average plate approach I get excited.

    Tyler Phillips, SP TEX He's 5th in all of Minor League baseball with a 17.7% Swinging Strike rate.. The questions about his control/command? 5 walks in 44IP.. 9.41 K/9 and a 1.02 BB/9.. He's a 20yr old in class A, but it seems like this dude has wicked stuff that the Rangers may have figured out how to start harnessing it. He has a 2.40 FIP.. I think he's pretty far off the radar, but in super deep leagues I think he's probably worth an add. Pitch grades: FB - 60, CB- 55, CH- 60.. so the potential is there!
  15. Kyle Tucker, OF HOU

    Dark One is right here.. There's been a bunch of opportunities for him to take advantage, and he just flat out hasn't forced the issue. It remains to be seen whether he's down there working on "swing adjustments" or whats causing the lack of power this year.. I fully expected him to hit 25HR+ between minors and MLB this year.. Still convinced he's gonna be a stud, he's just starting out quite a bit slower than I anticipated. It'll come in due time, I suppose.
