Hot Prospects – Week 6

This week’s list is my favorite to-date.  It’s not that every name on the list produced a tremendous stat line, but instead, it’s a collection of interesting names.  Some that might be able to help their respective big-league team this year and others who might be flying under-the-radar. Enjoy the list and please click on […]

Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

We are at the quarter-pole mark in the baseball season.  So far, it’s been another season of launch angle, home runs and strikeouts where a 4.30 ERA is league average and if you don’t hit 20 home runs, you have below-average power. It’s also been a season of kids getting promoted and this week we […]

Hot Prospects – Week 5

When I scan the weekly results for minor league players, the number of Triple-A hitters at the top is the largest I’ve seen over the past five years.  Clearly, the new ball is having an effect.  When you combine that with great hitting PCL ballparks and the normal inconsistent pitching you always see in Triple-A, […]

Waiver Wire – Week 6

The kids just seem to keep coming.  This week saw the arrival of Nate Lowe and Nick Senzel.  At the moment, both seem poised to stick in the Major Leagues with Senzel having huge potential.  For most of you, Senzel is already owned but Lowe might not be. But it doesn’t stop there.  Several other […]

Hot Prospects – Week 4

As we close out April, there have been a number of quality performances.  However, Luis Robert and Casey Mize were the best of the best and have won our April player of the month and pitcher of the month honors. Both have been recently promoted to Double-A with Mize already notching a no-hitter.  Roberts should […]

Waiver Wire – Week 5

How did you celebrate Vlad Jr. weekend?  Yeah, it was over the top, but that’s ok.  Baseball needs to highlight its young players.  After all, they are the future and whether you are a Blue Jays fan or not, you have to admit, it was cool to see him finally wearing a major league uniform. […]

Hot Prospects – Week 3

The end of Week 3 of the minor league season brings the debut of Vlad Jr.  Finally, the Blue Jay’s fans get to watch their great hope.  I don’t think he will disappoint as the hit-tool is too good.  The question on his immediate power might be getting answered as it’s in the ball.  With […]

Waiver Wire – Week 4

The injuries came fast and furious with this week with early-round draft picks such as Jacob deGrom, Aaron Judge and Starting Marte hitting the shelf and up-and-coming youngsters, Austin Meadows and Scott Kingery joining them. In a word, it was brutal. But, that’s what we are here for.  When you’ve got problems, we have solutions…er, […]

Hot Prospects – Week 2

The second week of the minor league season is upon us with Luis Robert putting on a great copy of what Vlad Jr. did in 2018.  He’s hitting everything in sight while showing plus power.  It shouldn’t be long before the White Sox challenge him with a promotion to Double-A. Once again, I went with […]

Waiver Wire – Week 3

Chris Davis had the baseball world on pins and needles as he broke two major league records over the past six months.  The first is he posted the lowest batting average for an entire season in 2018 and since last September, he had not gotten a hit in 62 plate appearances.  He broke that streak […]
