Cheese in the Kitchen: California Dreamin'

0

Wilson Karaman

The first-half All-Stars from the Single-A California League.

With the California League’s All-Star game in the books, the season’s first half has shuffled off this mortal coil. After a down year for top-end talent last year, the league has been defined thus far by significantly more “wow” talent, mostly concentrated among the top rungs of pitching staffs far and wide. Below you’ll find the complete All-Star rosters for reference, and then we’ll get into the league’s best and most interesting fantasy prospects.

Houston out-slugs Oakland, Corey Knebel sets a strikeout record, Matt Adams keeps chugging along, and the NL West clashes.

The Thursday Takeaway

Notes on Willie Calhoun, Chance Adams, Trent Clark, Shane Bieber, Kaleb Cowart, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Kaleb Cowart, IF, Anaheim Angels (Triple-A Salt Lake City): 6-6, 5 R, 3 2B, 3B, HR, 5 RBI
Yes, the 25-year-old’s career big-league line of .176/.210/.267 has come across two more at-bats than allowed for a position player to retain technical prospect eligibility, and writing about prospects is kind of the point of this column. But…I mean, that box score’s one for the refrigerator, man.

Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 13

Mark Barry

It's a bitch (girl) how little you can rely on Rich Hill to pitch (girl).

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: Sticking It Out With Avisail Garcia

0

Matt Collins

Garcia continues to produce well beyond his career norms at the plate. What should you do with him? Maybe just sit tight.

Even for a sport that revolves around unpredictability, this has been a weird fantasy baseball season. There have been complete collapses from fantasy mainstays, unfathomable performances from rookies, and breakouts from players we’d written off years ago. One member of the latter group is Avisail Garcia.

Baseball, suicide, and defending life.

A look at five prospects who should get called up.

We’ve started the Midseason Top 50 process here at Baseball Prospectus. There is a ways to go—so far we are only at the point where we have sorted a draft in a car heading to Camden Yards and then were unable to explain to the rest of the staff why Joshua Lowe ended up on it—but one of the hardest parts of the process is pegging who will actually be eligible. We only consider players in the minors at the time of publication, and now that we are well past the Super 2 safe harbor date, teams don't have service time manipulation reasons to keep their best upper-level prospects in the minors (well, maybe one of them, which we’ll get to). So let's take a look at some of the top names who may send us scrambling to find more top 50 prospects at the last minute (I guess Lowe still has a chance after all).

Jordan Zimmermann and Mike Fiers make themselves relevant again, and you might find some gold in the Nick Pivetta pan.

Emma wonders if Juan Samuel missed a chance to break a nonexistent rule, Mary follows a conveyor belt to its unnatural conclusion, and Matt relays some earthly sightseeing.

For some reason, it always seems like the Mets should be lower.

Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander fall short of history, Salvador Perez beats Robby Scott, Jose Berrios looks great again, and Orlando Arcia makes magic.

The Wednesday Takeaway

While what happens on a baseball field may not have a tangible impact on a general fan’s day-to-day life, many of us, often unconsciously, use the sport to reflect our world. We can feel a deep connection to those otherworldly athletic multimillionaires, even if they couldn’t possibly be more different than us, because we see ourselves in them.
