  1. Out again. No details again. For all we know they don't intend to start him at all ROS and they just don't care to say so. Couldn't have happened at worse time
  2. Anyone who was watching. Why was he out of tonight's game early? The lopsided score, or injury?
  3. Santana gets pulled from Rangers game due to hammy at 9:45 EST. Nick Solak pulled from AAA game at 10:30 in 6th inning. hmmmmmm
  4. Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) took about 40 swings off the tee from each side on Tuesday and also fielded grounders and did some light throwing. It's another step in the right direction for Mondesi, who has been sidelined since July 17 due to a left shoulder subluxation. The 24-year-old switch-hitting speedster owns a .266/.294/.433 slash line with 48 runs scored, seven home runs, 52 RBI and a major league-leading 31 stolen bases in 82 games. He's on track to return to the Royals' lineup sometime in early-to-mid August. ------------------------------------------------------------ No he isn't. Rotoworld blurb writer simply assumes this timeline even though there's zero credible information to be found. This garbage is literally attached to Mondesi''s player profile in Yahoo leagues, and most fantasy GM's assume it's actual news. The day before this made up trash was published, there was this:
  5. NEVER EVER trust ROTOWORLD's careless blurb writers. There is absolutely ZERO credible info out there suggesting he will be back in early to mid-August. They wrote that garbage literally the day after the manager was quoted that it will be a "while" and only indicated that he'd "want him back before the year's out" Who gives these fools the liberties to just report their uninformed guesses as fact?
  6. Taken out of yesterday's game late due to "calf stiffness". Hope this is nothing.
  7. Not only that, but he went with two totally untested guys in the 8th even though Martin was more rested than LeClerc
  8. Bad news for both Martin and LeClerc owners. Martin seems as good as gone and LeClerc doesn't have the sack for the job.
  9. I like Kingery's upside over Mazara even with no Giles, so no way for me. help here?
  10. In the future, you may get stuck with Moncada (next year) and Bregman (2021) having only 3B eligibility. I agree with some others that this trade leaves you very thin at 2B for the future, but you could always flip a SS for a 2B down the line. Adding that much speed in a h2h is hard to turn down tho. help here
  11. I'd roll the dice with Smith and his upside. Hard to trust d'Arnaud given his track record - could just be a hot streak and nothing more help here?
  12. Trading Alonso for something good is smart given you have Belly and Freeman. But really to me you're only getting Corbin back and thats not enough. Price is old, and Smith, Doolittle may not even be closers going forward (Smith may not even be a closer ROS for this season) help here?
  13. It would be Peralta or Eloy for me. Mercado looks for real and SB big in H2H help here?
  14. I'd drop Holland for Anderson or whoever looks to take Hollands spot, keep Eovaldi a few more days to see how BOS situation pans out. help here?
  15. For this season I would hold, but if your playing for the future, I'd do it. help here?
  16. Which tandem will deliver more ROS? - 5 standard + OPS league - positional eligibility not an issue Mookie Betts and Austin Meadows OR Starling Marte and Yuli Gurriel WHIR
  17. Seems to me Martin catches all of Ryu's and Maeda's starts, and as good as those two have been this year, why would they change that up? Smith could get 3 out of 5 - that's not bad. He appeared in 9 of the 28 games the Dodgers played during his earlier season callup (7 starts), considering he was the 3rd catcher that's pretty good.
  18. Got his Yahoo Sp eligibility, but what's the point? Manager seems to have no interest in using him for high leverage situations. Tries to push him two innings today as opener against a red hot Twins lineup after he threw 30 pitches yesterday, and he looked bad. Don't think the kid has any idea of his role. Had a month long stretch from early May thru early June where he was completely dominant, yet manager just kept teasing how he was "close", but never put him back in the closer role. Don't know if the early failures are still in his head, or the managers usage of him has got him screwed up. Either way, doesn't look to have much value going forward for saves or holds. Been keeping him all year, as my league counts holds and he gets his K's, but he's not really even getting the hold opportunities when they arise. Can't blame those in saves-only leagues who cut bait long ago. I really did think he'd turn it around, though. Anyone else still holding this guy?
  19. Anyone have a theory as to his unusual struggles against RHP this season? 2019: .348/.392/.739 vs LHP .233/.305/.371 vs RHP Smallish sample due to the time missed, but pretty extreme splits there. In his career pre 2016, he had distinctly better splits vs lefties. in 2016-18 something changed and he killed RHP. Recent seasons vs RHP: 2018: .863 OPS 2017: .952 OPS 2016: .942 OPS Can a knee injury affect how he handles RHP vs LHP?
  20. Okay so Adrianza returned the 28th, Buxton and Marwin the 29th... Arraez started all but one game since. Marwin sat twice, Adrianza sat 3x. Sano did not start 2 games but came in as PH midway through both of those non-starts. Cruz sat twice, and also was removed from last nights game as a "precaution" due to "heel discomfort". Cron has been lousy for the past 3-4 weeks, yet never really sits. What, if anything, does all of this say about Arraez' PT going forward?
  21. Carlos Martinez gets 2 inning save even though Hicks was off yesterday and has made only 3 appearances last 10 games. That said, it was also only Martinez's 3rd appearance last 10 games.
  22. He needs 3 more starts or 6 more appearances
