Collision in the OF Thursday. 

Thanks - I was aware. Hopefully today is the continuation of regular starts from him. He was moved up to the #2 hole today, so there is that!

Will Smith headed to Dodgers. In his last 15 AAA games he hit .396, 1.266 OPS and 5 dingers but it's still kind of tough to get super excited about catching prospects, especially with Keibert Ruiz in the org as well.

I guess he's been playing a lot of 3B and could have some pretty decent value in the coming years if he were to get some run there and maintain catcher eligibility.

Gio Urshela has been solid, a nice little fill in with SS and 3B eligibility. What were his expectations as a prospect? Just a utility guy? I don't remember the name much when he was with Cleveland and he was never on my prospect radar.

Defense was always considered at least above average from what I remember.  It always came down to the hit tool with him, which generally let him down until this season so far.

Ex-MLB player Angel Pagán and professional baseball player Orlando Román were rescued at sea this morning.

Authorities informed that the men were rescued off the coast of Puerto Rico at 7:09 am, Tuesday morning after a 15–foot wave flipped their boat. They were accompanied by a minor.

The boat capsized between the river mouth and Cibuco beach in the town of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico.

Vega Alta is in the northern coast of the island, roughly an hour away from San Juan.

Angel Págan played in the Major Leagues for the Cubs, Mets and Giants. In 11 seasons, he accumulated 1143 hits and had a .280 batting average. Pagán won a World Series ring with the Giants in 2012.

 

 

The Giants and Mets remain lost at sea

Is this a ploy to try to get me to drop one of my "good" veteran starters? <_<

Curious if we're about to see a Bobby Bradley call-up.  Bats have been an issue all season and whatever happened in Boston stayed there as they only scored 10 runs in 4 games in Chicago over the weekend.  Bradley will come with a pile of K's, but 285/355/606 with 8 bombs in the last 12 while Bauers is now 216/311/341 and is just 7-47 over that same timeframe.

Chance Sisco is back up. I know he's not very exciting but even a glimmer of hope in the catcher fantasy wasteland is worth a look.

Well, we're talking about the Indians here.  So later rather than sooner, probably.

Tito's patient with vets, but he isn't with kids.  The team needs to determine how much they're selling this month and this offense isn't going to cut it.  Not saying Bradley's gonna come up and be a solution, but unlike what's currently there he might.  So give him a few weeks, see what sorta impact he has, then re-assess around the AS break.

The Yandy trade is often cited, but it's also looking like that Leonys Martin trade was a mistake.  The guy traded for him is slashing 349/426/527.  People around here can't wait to get rid of Kipnis, but they can't because there isn't an alternative - only there was one 11 months ago. Thanks for that one.

Don't get me started....lol.  It's amazing how pristine the local media portrays ownership, front office , and manager compared to the other franchises here over the years.

The Phillies called up Adam Haseley to replace Cutch in center.  He has a good draft pedigree (1.08 in 2017) for what it's worth.  He put up decent but uninspiring numbers at AA and has only  27 PAs in AAA.  He hasn't shown much power or speed but he just turned 23 and maybe there's a leap in there somewhere.

It remains to be seen if Haseley will be any better than Nick Williams or Altherr or Quinn.  Odubel Herrera's administrative leave was just extended two more weeks.

This OF looked pretty decent two months ago.

Bradley is just 23 but his prospect star is fading. Not sure why they wouldn’t give him a shot based on what they are currently rolling out there, but the Indians are a strange outfit. He has 2200 minor league at bats with a mid 800s OPS, might as well give him a shot. :shrug:

Danny Jansen looks to be finally coming around. Not worth picking up yet but he's worth watching IMO - was surely dropped in every league but he was hailed as a borderline top ten catcher to start the year and like I say, he's finally starting to hit the ball hard.

Yordan Alvarez seems to be pretty good at hitting baseballs a long way.  Embarrassment of riches in the Astros organization.

Pretty good little start, Yordan.

Pittsburgh has to call Mitch Keller back up this week with Kingham DFA and Lyles on the IL, right? 

He’s pitching today.  Very tough matchup for the kid.  Last outing he settled down very nicely after a horrendous first inning.

Cavan Biggio is hitting .418/.522/.636 in AAA (he's who I was really checking out when I posted Travis Snider's numbers). I pulled the trigger on him in the last league he wasn't owned so I'm willing to post now. He was 26/20 last year in AA  and the power is looking more real. The OBP has been there from the start.

------

He's never been a "top" prospect and Keith Law hates him but his age, production, opportunity and the Jays current situation all seem like he should be there soon, especially now that Vlad is up and the next wave is here. Probably a better fantasy player than real life but that's what we care about, right?

Biggio has his second 2 HR night in the last 5 games. Up to 233/378/517 and has 4 starts in the outfield, so in Yahoo leagues, he should pick up eligibility there in the next week. His upside might be better than I gave credit for, he has an awesome eye for the plate and really drives the ball.

Zach Collins gets the call from the White Sox.  He's a three-true outcomes catcher who might be usable in deep OBP leagues if he can show some power in the big leagues.  He's supposedly not a great receiver and has struggled against LHP in the minors so his upside is pretty limited.

He might even get some DH ABs so definitely worth a look for those strapped at C(which is just about everyone).

Miami calling up Zac Gallen to start tomorrow.

Was never a big prospect but he’s been arguably the best pitcher in AAA this season with a 9-1 record, 1.77 ERA, 11.04 K/9 and 1.68 BB/9. A bit homer-prone but Marlins Park will help with that. Not overpowering but he has 3 solid pitches and good command. More of a high floor, low ceiling type.

Some usually informed Toronto sources think Bo Bichette comes up in the next month or so. I'm not sure what benefit it does anyone but since he has 5 RBI in Buffalo today, I'll throw it out there.

Yeah, that would be odd to give up a year of team control to have him play meaningless games. Not like he’s lit the high minors on fire either, although today’s outburst raised his OPS about 70 points.

Enyel De Los Santos is making a spot start for the Phillies today.  He's been a little iffy so far in the majors but has been great in AAA (over 1 K per inning , about a 3 ERA, etc.).  He's only 23 and could be something if he puts it all together.

Not official yet, but the Bobby Bradley promotion seems imminent today. Leonys Martin was dfa'd and yesterday's spot starter isn't needed anymore.

had a feeling that all 3 2nd-geners would be brought up together in May until Bo got hurt, but i wouldnt be surprised if they dont rush Bichette now because Galvis & Sogard have been the gamest Jays this season and they might not want to insult that with nothing to play for. Bichette has too high a ceiling not to want to try him @ his chosen position and they've already slid Gurriel & Biggio to the OF.

There's one big difference between Bichette and Gurriel and Biggio.  The former is 21, the latter are 25 and 24.  There's no age motivation to manipulate Lourdes and Cavan's timeline. Then I think back to what this team did with Vlad (then, 19) last year and I think it's more likely they don't bring up Bo this year.  He may have been able to force their hand if he came out on a tear, but with the injury by the time he could be on a tear it'll be into the second half of the season and this team is already dead now.  So instead of getting him to the show I can see this group making a business decision with Bo like they did last year - and the beginning of this season - with Vlad.  Would love to be wrong if he earns the promotion over the next month though.
