TDGX Transactions: Week 16

0

J.J. Jansons

Ask me about Jose Siri!

The Dynasty Guru Experts League is a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league founded by BP managing editor Bret Sayre in 2014. It is intended to satisfy the deep-league needs of all, down to just the right amount of Alexi Amarista. We roster 23 starters (C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI, along with two additional utility hitters, five outfielders and nine pitchers). We also roster seven bench slots and have 10 spots designated for minor leaguers, although a quick scan of the league finds that most teams utilize a majority of their bench spots for additional prospects. That means that there are an additional 100-120 prospects that are rostered above the 200 spots reserved for them.

These write-ups are intended to pair nicely with Mike Gianella’s Expert FAAB Review, as we will look at each week’s TDGX free-agent acquisitions, as well as include thoughts on every major trade that occurs during the season. The yearly budget for free-agent transactions is $100, with $0 bids allowed for major leaguers and prospects.

Notes on Royce Lewis, Jon Duplantier, Ryan McMahon, Calvin Mitchell, Chase Vallot, and more.

Hitters of the Day:

The GCL Yankees: 21 R, 11 H, 21 BB, 9 K
I can’t stress enough how magical this box score is. First things first, they scored 19 of their 21 runs in one inning. Not a typo. All told, my dudes plated 21 on 11 hits, thanks to 21 freaking walks. Nobody in the entire lineup tallied more than two hits. They hit no home runs. They knocked only three extra base hits – all triples – in the entire game. They even gave up 13 just because they could! You could live through a million more healthcare votes and never see anything like this again.

Will an acquiring team receive a helping...hand?

It's never easy for the Rays.

Tampa Bay is 53-50 and facing the usual issues with payroll, attendance, and division difficulty. Should they go for it this season, parting with long-term assets for short-term help, or stay the course and keep the competitive window open for as long as possible? Our roundtable debates the pros and cons of each side, with a couple interruptions from the Rays making trades.

News and notes from around the minor leagues.

To The DL

Nationals RF Juan Soto had been out for a while rehabbing his ankle. Well, now he is sidelined a bit longer after having his hamate removed. According to Nationals Director of Player Development Mark Scialabba, he should be back in the lineup in a few weeks.

Mark Barry

Luis Severino is an Auto-Starter, please send congratulations

It's time to preview the hurlers scheduled for two starts in the upcoming week. As the old wrestling promoters would always say: “Card Subject to Change,” because injuries and tinkering managers can make this less than a science. Should new information present itself, we can go over it in the comments.

Fantasy Freestyle: On Sustainability

Scooter Hotz

Leagues offering daily transactions, instead of weekly, open themselves up to losing owners.

A few weeks ago, there was some talk on the message board in one of my leagues about moving from weekly transactions and lineups to daily. I’m firmly on Team Weekly because I prioritize sustainability.

The Call-Up: Erick Fedde

Jarrett Seidler and Wilson Karaman

The Nationals turn to their 2014 first-round pick to fill a rotation spot.

The Situation: Stephen Strasburg’s latest mystery elbow problem has landed him on the 10-day DL. He’s only expected to miss one start, but the Nationals have called up their top remaining pitching prospect, Erick Fedde, to take the turn.
