I got deep sleeper who is post hype and an afterthought who is healthy, 26 years young,  in a new place, a new start, feels great, yada, yada

 

Some quotes from the spring on him...

 

"_______keeps raking from lead off spot"

"_______big spring continues"

"_______named likely starter at third base"

 

 

 

Any guesses yet?

 

 

 

........Brandon Drury

 

 

 

 

But doesn't he completely lost PT when Vlad comes up..?

Vlad probably will play 1B, good chance drury keeps the job if he rakes.

Nope they need to give Tellez a real shot at 1st some time this season. But Smoak is still around and valuable. Vladdy will be given at least a season at 3B to prove he can't cut it defensively. He's too young to be making that shift to 1st.

Drury might have to make some starts at 2B if Gurriel's defense isn't cutting it. Otherwise he joins the crowd at DH between Morales and Teo.

You would think they would have played Vlad at 1B in ST. He only played 3rd and was a DH. I don't see where Vlad has played 1B in the minors. Plus the BlueJays have Smoak and possibly Morales to play 1B. Smoak has had a pretty good spring.

Speaking of Smoak, he could be a decent value pick...

Long-term I think vlad is too big to stick at third.   Just my opinion.

So often its the older guys who provide a lot of value - general agism in the fantasy game. 

Younger guy?  I thought Reynaldo Lopez was a nice value this year - he was lights out the last several starts, numbers identical the last 6 starts ot Castillo, yet Castillo going like 200 picks earlier in ADP.  He was consistently there pretty late in drafts I did and went for $1 in auction the other night.

I brought up Drury here like a week ago.  He's on a lot of my teams. Hopefully it works out.

I know he's been mentioned a bit here, and he's lauded by a few smart fantasy numbers' guys...Wilmer Flores should be able to get a lot of ABs finally.

Nick Burdi on PIT was a rule 5 pick that will need to stay up with the club at least through May if they want to retain him.  He has looked really good in the spring and is a couple years removed from TJS.  Throws upper 97+ with a hard slider.  Probably starts the season in middle relief but could rack up K's and wind up in higher leverage situations down the road if he sticks.  13:3 K:BB in 9.1 spring innings with a sub-2 ERA

 

Struck out the side in the 8th today.  Looked pretty filthy.  He will get used just by virtue of his status as a rule 5 pick.  He is healthy at the moment, and the bucs are forced to roster him through the end of may.  My money is on him sticking around if he continues to pitch like he has been.
