  2. I don't see a thread on him, he may be forgotten in the deep San Diego system. If he is healthy and can pick up where he left off, he can move through the minors quickly. 2016 pitching stats in A ball before TJ surgery were: 9 starts 42 1/3 IP 20 hits 5 bb 71 ks 0.95 era 0.59 whip He just turned 22 years old, what are you expecting from him this season? Recent article on him: https://friarsonbase.com/2018/02/16/san-diego-padres-prospect-chris-paddack/ "After missing all of 2017, Paddack is expected to begin the 2018 season in minor league training camp this month. Hopefully, he will be worked back in very slowly. The amount of pitching depth affords the Padres this luxury. His fastball is a potential plus-pitch that sits at 91-92 mph. It does have good movement, a slight cut-action which he uses on both sides of the plate. His best pitch is his changeup. A potential plus-plus pitch, Fangraphs grades the off-speed offering at a 65. It’s the curveball that gives Paddack the most trouble. Nowhere near major league ready, this could be the deciding factor as to whether he’s a bullpen piece or a member of the starting rotation. He will need that third pitch to reach his projected ceiling, a back-end of the rotation starter."
  3. I dont see him listed as a top 100 prospect on any of cbs, mlb.com, baseball america, espn's lists so far. Any obvious reason for this that I am missing? I was expecting him to be in the 25-50 rangeon every list.
  4. No he wasnt, am I allowed to post espn's top 100 without the descriptions?
  5. I remember being turned off by last March's elbow swelling right before the season started which turned out to be nothing significant. Anyone still think of him as an elbow injury risk? http://www.cleveland.com/tribe/index.ssf/2017/03/cleveland_indians_carlos_carra_14.html He had Tommy John surgery back in 2011. At what point are pitchers at a greater risk for another elbow injury after having tj surgery. I remember reading something like most pitchers last on average ~6-8 years. http://www.imaginarybrickwall.com/high-risk-starting-pitchers-in-the-post-tommy-john-surgery-death-zone/
  6. https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Help-with-Fantasy-Baseball/C-Chris-Gimenez/td-p/269924 To anyone in yahoo leagues, you can be almost certain that only Shohei Ohtani's SP stats will be used. Even though Gimenez was not a valuable player, he did meet position eligibility requirements for both both catcher and pitcher. The comments in the link attached explain that since his regular position was catcher, he was never given pitcher eligibility. I assume an exception will be considered to avoid complaints. Adding a 2nd separate Ohtani for offense only seems reasonable.
  7. Is this true that espn is doing that? I cant find the source for that anywhere. Can you post a link?
  8. That makes sense, on yahoo's league standings page, both teams are listed at .509. But maybe thats meant to only be informative and they use the formula that you posted to determine the better record. Just a strange situation because team B has their head to head tiebreaker. Logically, I thought team A's additional 2 wins and 2 losses (.500) would decrease their overall win%.
  9. Question on how yahoo determines end of season ranking for a head to head league: Team A's record = 107-103-10 .509 win% Team B's record = 105-101-14 .509 win% Team A finished in 4th and made the playoffs according to yahoo, but if you calculate the exact win%, team B has a greater win % (.5097 vs .5095) Any insight would be appreciated.
  10. If that is the case, do you expect Gleyber Torres to start the year at 2b/ss?
  11. Doolittle pitchung to start the 8th inning? 2 inning save or is someone else getting an opportunity in the 9th?
  12. Herrera's last pitch was a fastball that came in at 91, trainer and manager came out to look at him and quickly taken out of the game. Maybe an arm injury here? Who is next in line in KC in case it's something serious?
