  1. C.J. Cron seems like he could return some value to owners this year. Penciled in as Detroit's everyday cleanup hitter. Elite statcast numbers. Healthy now. Detroit's lineup will stink and Cron has strong LHP/RHP splits but he won't cost you much. https://www.pitcherlist.com/going-deep-as-the-cron-flies-under-the-radar/ https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/savant-player/c-j-cron-543068?stats=statcast-r-hitting-mlb https://www.rosterresource.com/mlb-detroit-tigers
  2. 2/28/20 Longenhagen FG"s chat: 12:07 Reynolds: you mentioned that Heriberto was your favorite guy from back half of top 100. what makes him special to you/separates him from peers on the list? 12:08 Eric A Longenhagen: I just like watching him rake. It’s ‘favorite’ in the same way that butter pecan is my favorite, not that I like Heriberto more than others from an analysis standpoint. I’ve just never seen a player hit the ball so hard so consistently here in Arizona in my five years of living here.
  3. Super Excited about this guys as well! Some information about where he could end up on diamond: “I think the plan right now is to find creative ways to keep his bat in the lineup every day,” Hagen says. “We’re honestly not sure where he will ultimately end up (defensively), but with the trend within the game, we know that versatility will only help his case. He will get plenty of work (in camp) in the outfield on his routes, angles, ground balls and most importantly, in-game reads.” At 6’1, Hernandez is not much bigger than Khris Davis, and there are those who believe his power potential might eventually invoke the same name. Hernandez has quickly gone from “sort of old to be signing” to “sort of young to be playing full-season ball every day,” but the 20-year-old is no longer thought of as the former. He’s about two months away from settling in as the latter. These quotes are from Matt Hagen, newly appointed "Field Manager' for the Rangers. He will be responsible for the instruction and development of the organization’s minor-league position players. Part of that is having significant input on player assignments — that is, not only what uniform they play in but at what positions. For Hagen, both decisions on Hernandez have yet to be made.

  4. Preseason wouldn't be complete without some muscle gain talk: Kieboom enters spring training with a real opportunity to win the everyday third base job vacated by Anthony Rendon's departure, Nationals manager Davey Martinez told reporters Friday. “He deserves a shot to make the team,” Martinez said. “We need to fill a void at third base, and we think he's appropriate. He can do the job. I wasn't at Winterfest, but the guys there said he put on about 15-20 pounds of muscle, so I'm looking forward to watching him play there. "What I want to do, and I'm going to talk to him in the next few days, is just let him play third base and not move him all over the place and let him get used to playing third base and get him over there and see what we got.”
  5. 5 GS 4 Starts: 12.13 K/9 3.91 ERA 3.96 FIP 4.18 xFIP 25.5 K-BB% 3.50 SIERA 39.8 O-Swing% 16.8 SwStr% Small sample size and majority of it comes from gem he pitched vs. Boston but not a bad guy to take a flyer on. Has a plus curveball which is filth, not so sure about rest of his arsenal.
  6. He has batted cleanup for the Orioles for the whole Toronto series (past 3 games). The first game of the series (6/12) he started at DH over Chris Davis...... "And I want to see Sisco play, to be honest with you." - Orioles manager Brandon Hyde With the Orioles drafting Adley Rutschman in this past draft, it makes sense that they want to see what they have in Sisco now. He hasn't had noticeable R/L spits in the upper minors the past couple of years. If he is splitting time with Pedro Severino at C but also picking up starts at DH and batting cleanup he could be an interesting catching option moving forward.

  11. "safely hidden" = running routes for overthrown passes by backup QB Brian Hoyer.
  12. Not to rain on anyone's parade but per RW: Phillip Dorsett caught 4-of-4 targets for 36 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night. Dorsett started in the Patriots’ opening three-receiver set opposite Chris Hogan with Julian Edelman in the slot. Tom Brady found Dorsett for a crucial fourth-down conversion toward the end of the first half, showing trust in the former Colts first-round bust. At least until Edelman returns from suspension, Dorsett looks likely to open the season as the Patriots’ No. 2 receiver. He will still be the fourth or fifth option in New England’s passing game behind Hogan, Rob Gronkowski, James White, and Rex Burkhead with gadget guy Cordarrelle Patterson also in the mix. http://www.providencejournal.com/sports/20180825/phillip-dorsett-shines-in-patriots-third-preseason-game https://nesn.com/2018/08/has-phillip-dorsett-earned-place-in-tom-bradys-circle-of-trust/ The RW comments and links above are mostly fluff pieces but Dorsett caught 4 of 4 Brady targets last night with 1st team offense and it looks like the 25 year old, former 1st round talent could be Pats starting WR2 until Edelman returns (ahead of Patterson). Funny that Dorsett doesn't even have a 2018 thread. Patterson is interesting in his own right but not sure why he is getting more hype than Dorsett.
