  1. Wanted to start this as a sequel to the 2019 thread “2019 ‘Deep’ Sleepers”. Feel free to Add any deep prospects throughout the year to this thread that haven’t really been mentioned elsewhere. Or are on few to zero lists. May take awhile to get this one going with no minor league season last year... however, here are a few I’ve stumbled across... -Brenton Doyle, OF - COL Great athletic build. Drafted out of DII college where hit dominated. If it were D1 he would probably have some more hype around him. Didn’t skip a beat and Hit like a madman and stuffed the stat sheet in professiona
  2. Depends on if the 2 games will impact them making playoffs or not. Being how close the race is, I’d say Most likely they will.
  3. 6 bombs in the last 7 games. Could be a power hitting breakout in the making. Had 36 hrs in just 98 games last year. It was in the PCL however. Expected stats practically match his output. I’d add now, question later.
  4. Holds seekers... Look into Phil Maton. Holds his last two appearances. Dominant numbers.
  5. Here’s a list of guys that are among the leaders in k-bb%, xFIP, SIERA, and have either been getting holds or have been in critical game situations of late that could be available in your league: -Jake Diekman OAK -Josh Tomlin ATL -Josh Staumont KC -Evan Marshall CHW -Jake McGee LAD -Jonathan Hernandez TEX -Caleb Ferguson LAD — been getting holds, wins, and just pitching a lot. His Swstr% is impressive at 18.4% Unlikely he’s available but if he is, even in non-holds leagues, add TYLER DUFFEY immediately. One of the best RP in the game. Could be closer i
  6. Haven’t heard anything about those changes and it doesn’t seem likely they’ll make the effort to clarify those statistical definitions. I hope they do though. My thought on this is how is it fair if one team plays like 10 games in this format as opposed to another that doesn’t play any? If it’s a team built for shorter games with less depth they seem to get a competitive edge with this format. Kinda weird to implement this in terms of competitive integrity.
  7. I guess I didn’t remember correctly. Lol, Thanks for actually doing the research I didn’t have time for it when I posted unfortunately and now I look like a clown. But Even better, I feel a lot better about him now especially after his nice start. Not sure why I was thinking he didn’t last long. I apologize for the misinformation..
  8. Also of particular note, both his home runs this year have been off offspeed pitches, something he Significantly struggled with up until this year. From briefly watching live, he looks good. Much better than last year, sits back on off speed pitches, more patient, and I haven’t seen him flail at off speed pitches in the dirt like he normally does. Personally I’m buying where I can.
  9. He has massive K potential, but I would definitely temper expectations. IIRC, Most of his starts were only in the 4ip range last year in AA/AAA. But like Brock says, could be a reliever long term but definitely intriguing. I’ve had a couple shares since last year so I’m excited to see what he brings today.
  10. Nick Solak would fit in there over Guzman but yeah still not a great lineup. Willie could breakout this year, he had a great showing last year and will finally have a starting gig heading to the year. Prior years his mentality and dissatisfaction with not having a starting role seems to have at least impacted him a bit. He appears much more motivated this year in spring. Can’t wait to see his results.
  11. I’m not proud to start this thread lol but he’s had a nice few games to start spring. He’s 5/7, with 4 bbs and already a few homers. Dare I ask if there’s anything left in the tank? Anyone heard any offseason stories about swing change, etc.? Obviously SSS but it warrants an inquiry at least.
  12. Didn’t see a thread for Sheffield anywhere, surprisingly.. if one exists please merge this one with it. Making the start against TOR tonight. Was terrible in AAA this year but dominant after they demoted him to AA. AAA- 6.87 / 7.19 / 6.08 ERA/FIP/xFIP 55ip, 7.85 k/9, 6.71 bb/9 AA- 2.19 / 2.60 / 3.14 ERA/FIP/xFIP 78ip, 9.81 k/9, 2.08 bb/9 However his most recent start in AA he gave up 5ER on 5h and 2bb in 6ip with 6k. Anyone trusting this guy tonight? I know the AAA is juiced but I mean so is the MLB one..
  13. Gallen didn’t have walk issues in AAA this year shown by his 1.68 bb/9 in 91.1 innings. Weird he is walking so many guys in the bigs. His bb/9 is 4.94 between the marlins and dbacks this year after his 6 tonight.
  14. Gallen didn’t have walk issues in AAA this year shown by his 1.68 bb/9 in 91.1 innings. Weird he is walking so many guys in the bigs. His bb/9 is 4.83 between the marlins and dbacks this year.
  15. No mention of the no-no? Lol over now but still a nice game pitched for Hudson. 4 bbs is what escalated his pitch count.
  16. Is anyone concerned with his walk rate? He has a 4.18 bb/9 since his return to the rotation. 5 in one start back on August 2nd and 2 in each of his other 4 starts. K/9 is just 7.71 in that span too. His ERA looks great but is this just smoke and mirrors? SSS but in those 5 starts his xFIP is 4.60. Im just a little weary adding him, especially being in the payoffs already in my league. Not running to add either with the Cubs up next week.
  17. I can agree with you on most your points here. But many people have different opinions than you do. You can’t say that no one could say that he was gonna turn it around from his poor start. That’s just an opinion. He’s a great hitter, great hitters always have the potential to hit great lol even you said at the end of your post you expected him to turn it around. I expected it too and continued to be surprised when he wasn’t producing. I knew he was a great hitter and results had to be coming sooner or later. I’m not gonna lie, I was getting close to dropping him but I still believed in his po
  18. That’s my dilemma. Super juicy matchups. K’s W’s WHIP ERA He can still really help in. I’m leaning towards picking him up. Just hate to see he’s been capped at 80-90 pitches lately.
  19. Jeez man, I get the sense you either traded or dropped him right before he came alive. I don’t get the animosity. It’s like 10 against 1 here. Everyone knew Jose Ramirez could produce like he is. He did it last year, he did it the year before and his numbers showed. Hell, even during his cold streak his numbers showed he was probably a little unlucky. From April1-June22: High bb% (11%), low k%(13%), low BABIP (.228), and a low hr/fb (4.4%). Thats just a random date range. He’s an elite talent with an elite skillset.
  20. Yeah, sorry I didn’t clarify that. I’m currently in the quarterfinals. My league likes to avoid the period where teams bench their stars after they clinch the postseason lol
  21. Solid start yesterday. 6ip 6ks 1bb 3er Anyone keeping him around next week? Seems very risky, next 2 starts are vs BOS and then vs LAD. Sucks to drop after how well he’s pitched but might not be worth his next couple matchups unfortunately
  22. Anyone think he’s worth it in QS leagues for next week? Seems to be in line for 2 starts vs SEA and @BAL. Has he been on a pitch limit In his recent starts? Looks like he’s went 5 or less innings in all but one start.
  23. True he could’ve ruined your team earlier In the year but that’s not necessarily the case if you benched him and held on to him. After awhile most smart owners would have benched him after his horrid start to the season. He can’t ruin a team from the bench. I just think of it like stashing a top prospect or something along those lines. Yeah he’s eating up a bench spot but the payoff later could be significant. Same if you were stashing Yordan Alvarez all year (not in an NA spot) or another top prospect such as Lux or Roberts (even though they’re likely not to be up this year). My point is you
  24. Well this sucks. Out of nowhere too. Just as he was finding his groove once again... https://www.mlb.com/news/chris-sale-injured-list
