The Stash List

17th Edition

by Bret Sayre


The Graduates: Javier Baez (1), Wilmer Flores (10), Trevor May (12), Tommy Milone (15)
Considering it was a regular week, it was a pretty popular one to ascend from the Stash List. We all know how Baez has spent his first week in the majors, and it’s been almost exactly as we would have thought—three homers, 12 strikeouts, and no walks sounds pretty indicative of what to expect the rest of the way. If you need power, make sure he’s not available on the waiver wire.

Flores may only have a .557 OPS, but he’s certainly the best offensive option the Mets have at shortstop in the medium-term, and will now give him every chance to prove he’s as terrible at the position as his scouting report says.

On second thought, maybe it wasn’t the best idea in the world to get May his first major league start against the Athletics. His low-command approach wasn’t exactly the antidote to Oakland’s highly patient offensive attack. He’ll get another turn or two, but his next outing (Friday vs. Kansas City) is going to have to be significantly different.

Milone finally gets his place back in an MLB rotation, as the Twins finally moved on from Kevin Correia. He’ll pitch the rest of August in pitchers’ parks, so he makes for a pretty good pickup in medium-sized and deeper leagues right now.

The Departed: Jonathan Gray (24), Dylan Bundy (HM), Jesus Montero (HM)
The Gray thing just isn’t happening this year. Hope you enjoy your Yohan Flande. Same with Bundy, though at least the Orioles have actual pitchers ahead of him on the depth chart. Plus, he hasn’t looked all the way back from Tommy John yet. There’s still plenty of time for him to get there in 2015. Finally, despite a stolen base this week (his first in over five years), Montero falls off here—and likely for good. All the hot hitting in the world won’t get him a real shot in Seattle this year, so here’s to a change of scenery in the off-season.

And the ones who are still left waiting:
