  1. Gary Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    Yes, looks like they've flat-out stated that they anticipate him back on Friday barring any setbacks: "Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that as long as Sanchez continues to progress, the plan is for him to start behind the plate in the club’s first game after the All-Star break — July 20 against the New York Mets." https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2018/07/15/yankees-gary-sanchez-to-begin-minor-league-rehab-assignment/
  2. Gary Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    Caught 7 innings and hit a homer (off Ervin Santana) yesterday. Seems like a safe bet to come off the DL immediately after the break. https://www.milb.com/scranton-wb/news/gary-sanchez-powers-railriders-to-3-1-victory/c-285958314

    In H2H points where the Ks could potentially offset the runs/dingers, it might be worth the gamble. Otherwise the only reason to start him today is if you're desperate for Wins or Ks.
  4. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    Well then here's hoping the Astros do the right thing (for Bregman's fantasy owners) and get him 2 more starts at SS while Correa's still out!
  5. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    He apparently even has a start at 2nd, which I had no idea about. Not holding my breath but Bregman with 2b-SS-3b eligibility would be amazing.
  6. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    Yahoo shows Bregman as having 5 Games (3 Games Started) at SS. Does anybody know if that's enough to keep SS eligibility for next season already?
  7. Andrew Benintendi 2018 Outlook

    Two more doubles last night, and a steal of third base (with two outs nonetheless)! Gotta love his value ROS hitting between Betts and JD Martinez. Probably the best 1-2-3 lineup in all of baseball right now.
  8. Willians Astudillo 2018 Outlook

    Started out 5 for 14 and hasn't seen an at-bat in 5+ games since... time to cut bait?
  9. Juan Soto 2018 Outlook

    Soto is one of the best young players ever. "Not that special" is one of the most... "special"... things I've seen written in my short time on these boards
  10. Robbie Ray 2018 Outlook

    Would've been nice to see a better start vs a weak SD team. That being said, I'm holding. The main reason to own Ray is for the Ks and he's still delivering there. I don't think he'll revert to last season's overall numbers, but he's somewhere in between that and what he's shown so far this season. ERA should be in the high 3s by the end of the year.
  11. Max Fried 2018 Outlook

    Yahoo has him listed as the probable starter at Milwaukee on Thursday, but I don't see confirmation of that anywhere else. Are there other candidates in the Braves' organization who could conceivably get the start over him, or is it safe to add him for that start?
  12. Carlos Correa 2018 Outlook

    People comping him negatively vs. Javy Baez this year... I guess it depends on the type of league you're in. But from my view Baez stats this year are nothing to scoff at, so I don't see what the big deal is there. Baez is just having a really good year so far. Trea Turner is also ranked behind him in my league, and he was ranked #4 (or maybe it was 6?) OVERALL in Yahoo's preseason rankings. I don't think the ROI on Correa so far is as bad as some folks are making it out to be. Approaching the halfway point Correa is on pace for about a 28 HR 100 RBI season... and he hasn't even gone on a hot streak yet like we've seen him do in the past. Barring injury he is probably going to be a top 5 SS at worst by season's end. Top-tier talent usually shows out over the long haul (despite what those unsourced unnamed scouts may have said about his hitting when he was drafted).
  13. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    The same user had some equally... insightful... comments in the Andrew Benintendi thread during his early season slump Very glad I held onto Bregman! just wondering if I should sell high after another month of good hitting, with him (presumably) losing his SS eligibility after this year.
  14. Andrew Benintendi 2018 Outlook

    As someone who confidently held onto Beni in April, I just took great amusement in seeing all the early season hate reading through this entire thread just now. Looks like all those commenters have disappeared
  15. Mike Soroka 2018 Outlook

    According to Yahoo, he'll be back starting for Atlanta on Wednesday. Nice!
