  1. Royce Lewis-SS/OF-MIN

    I'm a bit surprised that he's already showing as much pop as he has. I envisioned him as a 15HR bat in the majors when I drafted him, but he's already sporting enough power to do that at age 19. Can we dream on something as ridiculous as him becoming a 25HR 40SB player?

    After an extremely glowing write up in the helium section of BAs hot sheets, there's no more ignoring NYY OF prospect Everson Periera. Young kid who already had very good bat on ball skills and plate discipline puts on some size over the winter and goes from gap power to plus power hitter. The difference for Periera is he's only 17 and he's already showing it in games.

    Thank god for that. An event as big as this one would have completely changed the landscape of baseball and really soured the game for a lot of casual fans.
  4. Forrest Whitley - RHP HOU

    As much as I would love that and god know's my team could really use it, I can't see him anywhere but out of the pen in 2018 outside of maybe a start or two when rosters expand.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but where is the hype around Taylor Widener? Putting up good if not great numbers in AA, missing a ton of bats and yet I never hear him mentioned. Following last night's 6IP 3H 0ER 2BB 12K performance, his season numbers, are a very impressive 2.53ERA 3.12FIP 3.22xFIP 11.84K/9 2.93BB/9. It's not like he's living on deception either, as his fastball sits 93-95 touching 98mph which earns 60/60grade, an above average slider which earns a 55/60 and he's added a change up that has continued to improve this season and is a quality 3rd pitch at 50.
  6. Prospect Hot Sheet - Baseball America

    Despite adding a decent amount of new content and updating lists frequently, I think BA made a pretty big mistake. There's far too many upstarts giving away information for free.

    If this is true, then this is a nightmare for baseball both structurally and in the public eye.

    Here we are just over a month later and Amaya has done nothing but get better. His season line stands at a robust .293/.371/..518 with 8Hrs. His downside was that despite success at earlier levels, Amaya was throwing people at a terrible rate this year. Well the Cubs brought in an instructor and in the following days he gunned out 9 of the next 13 runners. It's no stretch to say at this point in time that Miguel Amaya is the Cub's #1 prospect ahead of both Alzolay and Ademan

    Matt Swarmer(24) A+ SP CHC Sits in the low 90s but can touch 94, he has a plus change up and solid slider. He also features plus command which lets all of his stuff play up. He's putting up a 2.38ERA 1.84FIP 10.52K/9 1.19BB/9 line in A+ and that was before tonight's 6IP 2H 1ER 1BB 6K outing. Due to his age you'd expect him to get pushed quickly so I expect AA to be in his very near future.
  11. Trade help! WHIR

    I would agree, I'd want someone a little higher up the totem pole than Junis. I don't think it's a huge difference, but it's enough where I'd push for just a bit more.
  12. Which Deal? (WHIR)

    Wrong thread
  13. My Pham for his Brantley+Morton? WHIR

    I'll be honest I'm quite worried about Pham. It's not just that he's struggled at the plate lately, it's that he's misreading balls in the OF as well. Put those together and I'm quite concerned that he's having issues with his eyes again. If you can get that kind of package, which would have been a great haul even before he started slumping, then I'd run with it.
  14. Clevinger for Lester/Davidson

    If you're trying to win this year maybe, but I definitely don't like it going forward and the more I think about it the more I wonder if it really make you all that much better this year. Stay put. Help me out:
  15. Marte or Snell?

    If we're just talking straight value and we know nothing about the league or team needs, I guess Marte, but Snell isn't far behind. Help me out: http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/703583-which-deal-whir/
