  1. A healthy Glasnow belongs in this group
  2. As a Tigers fan, seeing how slim Miggy looks right now is pretty shocking. The weight loss is very noticeable. With that being said, I am expecting a good BA and not sure what else.
  3. Sleeper and the bust podcast mentioned that he is reworking his delivery/mechanics yet again. They didnt seem very encouraged
  4. Upside could be Gerrit Cole. Cole only reached 140 IP once in his first 4 seasons and I remember he was always considered an injury risk. Since then he's gone three straight years 200+ with no problems and truly elite K totals. While Glasnow has shown elite K ability, of course he may never get to Cole Cy Young levels due to his control issues and I am worried about the wrist surgery eventually turning into a TJ type of disaster. Huge upside, huge risk for 2020 and dynasty. Im really struggling with how to rank against Syndergaard/Greinke/Bauer because I believe the upside is so great.
  5. You asked what was there to like, and that projection is actually what he finished with last season playing half of his games as a semi-reserve OF and without Lindor/Ramirez/Santana. The upside is that he improves on his numbers from last year. For as devalued as you say power is, only 10 guys in the entire league went 40/90 last year. Sure we are gambling a bit on upside at his ADP but I dont mind him versus the players you mentioned. Sano ADP 124 Actually more expensive than Reyes and yes I would say he is similar type of player. Where are his SBs? He's played 486 games with 2 career SBs. Franmil ADP 140 Edwin ADP 152 Age 37 and is descending as a professional baseball player. Also plays a different position, where are his SBs? Hasnt chipped in more than 3 SBs in 7 years and hes a pretty solid bet for zero in 2020. Khris Davis ADP 169 Good value but youre also betting on a big time bounce back after last season. Prime Khris Davis (what youre chasing when you buy off of a down year) is actually similar to Franmil Reyes type of dream season with average walks and no SBs. And Khris Davis was an early round draft staple for years. Where are his SBs? Justin Upton ADP 202 Agreed. I love Upton this year in drafts
  6. Streamer has him projected for a .260 BA and a league average BB% of 9. Combined with elite-elite raw power, AL for a full season opposed to Petco, proven 37 HR production, gets to bat behind Lindor/Mercado/Santana(.360+ OBP)/Ramirez (.360+OBP), changed approach has resulted in an improved end of 2019 and Spring Training, wont be limited to UTIL eligibility, still young at 24 maybe we havent seen his best season yet and he has colorful dreadlocks. I like that I dont like his Ks which does mean he is prone to streaks and the downside associated with that type of hitters profile. But youre either in a really shallow league or youre going to sell me on a power sleeper that will struggle with playing time and even the same exact lack of SBs that you mentioned. How many guys in the league hit 40 homers and steal bases anyways? Yes, custom league settings make some stat lines more valuable than others but in a MLB where no one steals its a bit strange to single him out for the lack of speed. Reyes seems like a pretty safe bet to provide great HR and RBI production all year and owners are hoping he has a league average BA. What if 2018 was his breakout year? In 2018 he hit .324 in AAA with 16 homers, and then pushed to the majors where he finished with 16 more HRs while hitting .280. And youre going to single out 50 games in CLE where he batted .237? I made an earlier post about how Franmil struggled with the trade and switching teams. But after making an adjustment with Carlos Santana he finished the season on a .270 hitting clip. People are hoping that adjustment sticks and that he can even add to a pretty impressive stat line from 2019. He was still very unknown and unproven last year in drafts and finishing with 37 homers actually got him close to finishing top 150 in value for my league.
  7. Franmil hit 37 homers as part of a major league baseball team last season. He was 23 years old and spent half the year in Petco Park. This hype isnt just about his 2020 spring training, guys.
  8. Has anyone mentioned he has only 3 K in 27 ABs this spring?
  9. No argument to the Ks and glitter butt. But I have a hard time ignoring the potential in the middle of the CLE lineup. Tido has said his bat will be in the lineup, and the lost weight/non-disaster in RF this preseason has ensured he is will keep his OF eligibility. More DH starts the better, but our concerns as managers should be that he reaches the bare minimum of starts to keep the RF and I think that's guaranteed. In this interview he mentions a specific instance of Carlos Santana pulling him aside in the locker room last year after the trade. Since that date Franmil says he made some adjustments to his approach and that he feels much more comfortable at the plate. Is the turning point he is talking about Aug 12th weekend at home versus the Red Sox? From that date forward: Strikeouts remain scary, but the 18 XBH really stand out. Just trying to find other stats to talk about other than his beautiful exit velocities. His .270 after Aug 12th is also closer to Fangraphs projected .258 for 2020, and I might be okay with the Ks if I think he can produce 40 HRs with middle of the lineup RBIs and runs. This kid is younger than Pete Alonso believe it or not. His AVG is tied to how he hits RHP, as he hit .280 with .881 OPS 11.8% BB against LHP in 2019 overall. Although his ISO was higher against RHP, I am still hoping the adjustments from Carlos stick and can add a few more hits and improve on the deadly .238. 2 more homers tonight yall know the Franmillionaire:
  10. Needs to be more noise on this kid. Switch hitter, good eye, good defender, and is on the verge of a starting job in early-2020.
  11. Some important context, and why I choose the span of games I did: The 5.5 IP you provided is impacted by a slow start of the season in March. We have to remember 2019 was dedicated to transitioning him to a starter. He did not make one start in the second half of 2018, and they started him off slow in 2019. The 5.5 IP number is also affected by his last 3 starts, in which he went 3 IP, 2 IP, and 2 IP. All of these starts were a result of his oblique injury.
  12. His IP from games 5/8 to 7/16 and then dealt with an oblique injury 6 IP 6 8 8 4 6 7 6 7 7.2 6 6.2
  13. According to Rays’ manager Kevin Cash, Blake Snell is about 10 days behind Glasnow in his rehab start, which would put his target return the third or fourth week of September. That would be in time to make a start or two before a possible Wild Card game. https://calltothepen.com/2019/08/27/tampa-bay-rays-blake-snell-tyler-glasnow-close/
  14. Won't return before mid-September August 25, 2019 Manager Kevin Cash reiterated Sunday that Snell (elbow) remains without a clear timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. ANALYSIS Snell hasn't hit a setback in his recovery from left elbow surgery since beginning a throwing program Aug. 12, but he's still not far enough along in his rehab process for the Rays to identify a target date for his return. Since Snell remains limited to playing catch off flat ground at this stage, Topkin posits that the southpaw is likely at least 10 days behind rehabbing pitcher Tyler Glasnow (elbow), who is slated to throw live batting practice Tuesday. With Glasnow realistically trending toward a return in the second week of September, it thus appears safe to rule out Snell for at least the first half of the season's final month. A clearer timeline for Snell's return should emerge once he advances to mound work. https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=12189
