Athletics Acquire Wilmer Font

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 20:29:53 +0000

The Athletics have acquired righty Wilmer Font from the Dodgers, per a club announcement. Lefty Logan Salow will head to Los Angeles in return.



Adrian Beltre Placed On 10-Day DL With Hamstring Strain

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 20:15:48 +0000

TODAY: Beltre is indeed going to the DL, per a club announcement. The team activated righty Doug Fister and called up Ryan Rua. Those moves required an additional roster spot , which was created by optioning reliever Matt Bush. That’s obviously a disappointing turn of events for Bush, who needs to iron things out after allowing…

Brewers Place Eric Thames On DL With Torn Thumb Ligament

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 19:51:37 +0000

2:51pm: Milwaukee GM David Stearns tells reporters that Thames will likely require surgery, though that determination is not yet finalized (Twitter link via Adam McCalvy of MLB.com). The team still expects to have Thames back in the fold for a “significant” portion of the 2018 campaign, Stearns further adds. 2:39pm: The Brewers announced Wednesday that…



Rays To Select Contract Of Jonny Venters

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 19:33:41 +0000

The Rays are set to select the contract of left-handed reliever Jonny Venters from Triple-A Durham, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter links). It’ll be the first appearance in the Majors for Venters since way back in 2012. The lefty was a star setup man for the Braves before injuries decimated a…

Pitching Profile: Buehler Steals The Show With Rendition of Danke Schoen

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 19:00:05 +0000

This should be old hat by now. If a prospect is called up, I'm going to profile him. It's what I do. When my two worlds collide into one, everything suddenly stops, and I become one with the ball. Feeling each twist and turn, as I tumble out of Walker Buehler's hand and into Yasmani Grandal's mitt. That was supposed to be more poetic than homo-erotic thriller, but I'm not sure I achieved that. Oh well, any-fracking-way, Dodgers super-prospect, former first round pick, and Vanderbilt ace made the start on Monday... Wait for it, before being sent back down on Tuesday. It's a rough life for these prospects. One minute you're sipping champagne from between Charlotte McKinney's dirty pillows, and the next you're back in Omaha eating at Denny's. (They actually sent Buehler down to Hi-A Rancho, with the intent of adding an arm to the pen for the remainder of the week, before recalling him for Saturday's double-header against the Giants.) My guess is Buehler will be back in Hollyweird, canoodling with Charlotte once again. Here's what I saw on Monday.(image)



Top 10 Swing Strike% (Pitcher’s Edition): How To Handle The Early Season Success Stories (Corbin, Morton & More)

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 18:30:03 +0000

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Swinging strikes don’t necessarily mean that a pitcher is a lock to accumulate gaudy strikeout totals, but it certainly helps.  Obviously when you look at the Top 10 (through Monday) you are going to see some familiar names, but there



Mariners Outright Dario Alvarez

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 18:15:54 +0000

The Mariners announced that lefty Dario Alvarez has cleared waivers and been sent outright off the 40-man roster. Seattle had claimed Alvarez off waivers from the Cubs late in Spring Training. Alvarez was already pitching for the club’s Triple-A affiliate and will remain there, as the club didn’t announce a corresponding move. The outright, then,…

Perception Vs. Reality: Mingle With Christian

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 18:00:19 +0000

Welcome back to Perception Vs. Reality where we run through the player rater and talk about players that have been outperforming their expectations from a numbers standpoint. Last week, I mentioned how poor the weather has been and it seems that we are seeing a much better outcome from mother nature going into this week so let's hope that it continues. This week might seem like a little bit of a rerun from my post a couple of weeks ago, but there are a couple of names that are worth repeating again as they continue to crush baseballs and expectations. But I will start with a name that is new to this post in an effort to shake things up.(image)



Braves Promote Ronald Acuna

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 17:57:18 +0000

April 25: Acuna’s contract has been formally selected from Triple-A Gwinnett, the club announced. He’s playing left field and batting sixth for the Braves in his MLB debut. April 24: The Braves are set to promote top prospect Ronald Acuna to the Major Leagues, Daniel Alvarez Montes of EVTV Miami reports (Twitter link). MLB.com’s Mark…



Braves Designate Peter Bourjos For Assignment

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 17:56:15 +0000

The Braves announced Wednesday that they’ve designated outfielder Peter Bourjos for assignment. His roster spot will go to Ronald Acuña Jr., whose contract has been formally selected from Triple-A Gwinnett. Acuña will make his MLB debut tonight. More to come.

Points Leagues: Mo’ lina Mo’ lina Mo’ lina

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 17:00:18 +0000

I thought about going with "Yadda Yadda Yadier" as the title for this week's rant, but I used that line last week when discussing the top catcher in fantasy baseball points leagues. While I would only be stealing from myself I wanted something new. If only Molina had homered three times last night this would have been perfect. I still think it's good enough, and good enough is good enough for me. Speaking of "good enough", Yadier Molina has been far better than good enough. In fact, he has been fantastic. The dude's got 6 home runs, 16 runs batted in, a .316 batting average and 2 stolen bases to boot! With 69 points Yadier is in a league of his own at the catching position. Eat your hearts out Gary Sanchez owners! While you were busy drafting Sanchez in the third round I drafted Manny Machado. And when I drafted Molina in the 12th, you were stuck taking Paul DeJong.(image)



Draft: Shark in the Water

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 16:45:22 +0000

Giants starter Jeff Samardzija is a shark lurking in the waters on Tuesday, ready to put up a big performance for those who draft him. He is only projected as the seventh-best starter, but I think Shark is your best option outside of the three aces pitching today. He went five scoreless against a tough Angels lineup in his first time out, and that was when he was restricted to just 80 pitches. With a longer leash, Samardzija should have an even better start against the Nats. A popular sleeper candidate before his injury, Samardzija posted a 24.2% K-rate with just a 3.8% walk-rate in 2017, putting up a 3.63 Deserved Run Average. He's not a top-tier ace, but he's still a very useful fantasy starter, and people will start realizing that soon enough. New to Draft.com? Scared of feeling like a small fish in a big pond?

Knocking Down The Door: Adames, Ferguson, Kingham, Kopech, Poche

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 23:50:11 +0000

The 2018 debut of “Knocking Down The Door” is here! Over the next four months, I will be identifying Minor Leaguers who I believe are putting themselves in position to earn a big league call-up in the near future. Walker Buehler and Gleyber Torres would’ve gotten serious consideration had they not already been promoted. Many others who make…
