  1. Seriously, can anyone point to an article or any information post-visit with Andrews that Sale has UCL damage and that TJS is a likely scenario? Unless you can, the speculation is baseless. If you are an owner in a dynasty/keeper league and want to sell him for pennies on the dollar, based on all the chicken littles spinning this story, then go nuts.
  2. And now Santana also out. Fingers crossed.
  3. Mazara left tonight's game with oblique tightness. Hoping if he hits the IL that they give Solak The Call.
  4. Honestly, this is taking things to the extreme. What we do know, he has elbow inflammation. There is absolutely no mention that there is UCL damage or that he is now some kind of candidate for TJS. Could he? Yes, obviously, but that is not really based on any medical opinion or diagnosis right now. Dr. Andrews did not recommend surgery or even list something else as an alternative before deciding if it was needed. The report says he has elbow inflammation and he received a platelet-rich plasma injection. He will refrain from throwing for 6 weeks. That's all that can be taken from this.
  5. Surprised nothing has come out yet on the meeting with Andrews. I don't think you can read into that, good or bad, but if anyone hears anything on the locals in Boston if you can please relay. Many thanks.
  6. I guess it depends if you believe that his stats this year are a 'true breakout'. If so, then he looks like he could have 20-25HR upside with a good average. Not sure his speed, but at least from his milb career he doesn't look like a guy that's going to give you more than 5-10sbs.
  7. Not really a guy I'd want. Looks mid to back end rotation upside.
  8. He's only 24 so he could add some additional power as he ages, I think he's got 25-25 upside. I agree with the above, he's hot then he's cold (start singing), but overall the numbers are there.
  9. Another solid outing today. 5IP, 4hits, 1ER, 2BB, 7Ks
  10. Clap clap, one month later and even better.
  11. Followed up his 3hr game with a 2hr game last night. 3-4, 2Hrs, BB. Putting up video game numbers so far in the PCL.
  12. Interesting line tonight. 5IP, 0hits, 0ER, 5BBs, 7Ks
  13. It's tough, he's literally blocked at every position for both the near and distant future (barring an injury). Hopefully he seizes the opportunity, but perhaps another team will look to deal for him in the off-season.
  14. According to RW, Profar was told he will be taking a seat to Joseph. If he can hit the ground running, the job might be his ROS.
  15. I agree with @Cmilne23, that was my point as well.
  16. In fairness to Pham, he's trying to gut it out. I recognize that for fantasy that's not helpful, but you can't fault the player for wanting to give it 110%. His stats have gone down since the injury and you can't ignore that he was on his way to a 20-20 season with a good average. You don't want him on your team moving forward, that is justifiable considering the injuries, but he was at least productive for a good portion of the season.
  17. I don't think we can call Lowe 'made of glass' at this point. Still, it is fair to wonder why a shin bruise would keep a guy out 6 weeks. There wasn't even a diagnosis of a hairline fracture, which may help explain it. Any MDs that can comment that may assist, because to the lay person it really makes no sense.
  18. And the woman sitting directly in front of her doesn't even flinch, haha.
  19. Should be noted that both of the ER were from inherited runners that scored.
  20. He's getting his first taste of big league action. Not everyone hits the ground running. From what I've seen, he has not been swinging wildly or just going up hacking. It seems he does have a plan but just has been fooled on some quality big league stuff and some of the Ks as a result have been looking rather than him just hacking, as mentioned. It takes time for most guys his age to adjust. IF you are relying on him this year, then I would not be expecting much out of him. The Marlins have nothing to play for, so they are better served giving the kid every day ABs to see what they have. That said, if he continues to struggle he'll get moved down into the 7th-8th spot (like Brinson) and that is a fantasy wasteland, especially on an NL club. Long-term, I think this kid has a conducive swing that could get you 25+Hrs and 15+ steals, but the average may not be more than .270-.275 or so. I could see him as a Jonathan Villar type, with less speed (perhaps the reverse hr/sb split). Just my two cents.
  21. Ya, my perspective is they don't rank him because he has almost no defensive ability. They were way down on Alonso, I believe, as well for the same reason. If Martin continue to hit with the power he has shown thus far, there is a chance he can carve out a role. I like him and I think he is undervalued fantasy guy. As for sites, I like Eric Cross at Fantrax and RazzBall are good. On RW, there are a number of great posters, @brockpapersizer and @garlando are two of the guys I respect greatly, but there are a lot of other knowledgeable guys too. So, if you are looking for up and comers a great thread is the "Deep Sleepers" one and also just keep a watch at threads being created. Usually, you will have a ton a guys that you will end of up liking, haha. GL
  22. @Golden Spikes - I know you are a big Pads guy and respect your opinion. What do you think of France? Obviously, the juiced ball has to be taken into account, but his numbers even factoring in same are still crazy good. Do you think he gets any shot with the Pads before year end, outside of a September call-up, and is there any path to playing time?
