The Stash List

11th Edition

by Greg Wellemeyer


Here are the four types of players eligible for inclusion:

Minor leaguers: anyone currently in the minors.
Major leaguers on the DL: anyone currently on the disabled list who is owned in fewer than 25 percent of ESPN leagues.
Closers-in-waiting: any reliever who is not actively getting saves and is owned in fewer than 25 percent of ESPN leagues.
Others-in-waiting: any other player who is not currently active in the role that would net him the most fantasy value.

The Graduates: Cameron Maybin (Previous Rank: 4), Joc Pederson (6), Lewis Brinson (11), Derek Fisher (14)

Maybin returned to the top of the Angels’ lineup Friday and swiped four bags, followed by another pair the next night. With Mike Trout out for a while, it makes sense for the Angels to turn Maybin loose on the bases in an effort to manufacture runs.

Pederson was activated from the disabled list Tuesday and started in center, batting eighth. With Adrian Gonzalez heading back to the DL as the corresponding move, there’s enough room in the Dodgers’ lineup to keep everyone in the lineup who should be in the lineup. If Pederson still isn’t hitting by the time Gonzalez is ready, he could be looking at a strict platoon at best.

Brinson made his major-league debut Sunday and has started each game since. Five strikeouts in 13 plate appearances means very little, but does underscore the longstanding swing-and-miss concerns among scouts. Despite the reports, Brinson ran an entirely acceptable 22.1 percent strikeout rate in Triple A prior to his call-up. I expect Brinson to remain in Milwaukee for the balance of the season and provide power and speed, even if growing pains result in some ugly stretches.
