The Stash List

Third Edition

by Greg Wellemeyer


It’s week three of the Stash List and things are moving. We’ve got some graduates, some dropouts, some new blood. Let’s get on with it.

The Graduates: Joe Ross (Previous rank: 5), Martin Prado (8), Joey Gallo (20)

After two starts for triple-A Syracuse, Ross was recalled to start Wednesday for the Nationals. He began the season in the minors mostly because of timing; the Nationals have needed a fifth starter only once to date, and thought it was a good idea to give that one to Jeremy Guthrie. Ross should be up for good.

Prado was activated from the disabled list Monday and slotted in the second spot in the Marlins batting order. If he stays there, with Dee Gordon on one side and Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton on the other, there should be ample opportunity for contextual stats to go alongside his excellent batting average.

Gallo is manning the hot corner every day while the Rangers slow roll Adrian Beltre’s return from a calf strain, so he doesn’t really fit the parameters of the list for the time being. Gallo’s 36.5 percent strikeout rate represents progress, but I’m not sure he’s done enough to earn a full complement of at-bats whenever Beltre returns.

The Dropouts: Lucas Giolito (15), Jose De Leon (16)
