How worn down are worn-down relievers after all?

On June 13, Andrew Miller relieved Trevor Bauer with the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning of the Indians' game against the Dodgers, tied at 2-2. He struck out Yasiel Puig to end the inning and retired all three batters he faced in the seventh. In the top of the eighth, though, he allowed a home run to Cody Bellinger and a single to Yasmani Grandal. He was pulled in favor of Bryan Shaw. Miller took the loss.

Fantasy Freestyle: The Art of the Deal: Transforming a No into a Yes

1

Mike Gianella

A Kafkaesque look at how to approach the trading season in fantasy baseball.

It’s that time of year: time for the fantasy scribes to put together their annual trading columns. More so than with auctioning, drafting or player analysis, trading is a difficult topic because there is so much variability from league to league and even from fantasy manager to fantasy manager. What works in my 12-team AL-only keeper league probably will not work in your 15-team mixed redraft league.

One constant that does exist across leagues is that you will have to interact with other people. “To write prescriptions is easy, but to come to an understanding with people is hard.” Franz Kafka wrote in A Country Doctor. Kafka died 56 years before Daniel Okrent’s fantasy baseball league had its initial auction at La Rotisserie Francaise in Manhattan in 1980, so we may never know what Kafka would have thought of fantasy baseball, but I suspect that he would have found the frustration with the difficulty of trading extremely relatable.

The Call-Up: Andrew Moore

4

JH Schroeder and Wilson Karaman

If you're going to be a right-handed pitcher with no particular out-pitch, it's best to be one in Seattle.

The Situation: Despite being among the best and most advanced arms in the Mariners’ system, Andrew Moore was a bit of a surprise call-up today. Most notably, the Mariners needed to DFA Tyler Cloyd to add Moore to the 40-man roster. Moore is expected to start for the Mariners; Christian Bergman was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma, presumably to create space in the Mariners rotation. Felix Hernandez is also expected back this Friday, so it remains to be seen whether Moore, or Sam Gaviglio get sent back down this weekend.

The Background: Moore was selected in Competitive Balance Round B in the 2015 draft, 72nd overall, out of Oregon State. Moore has been very successful through almost two full years in the minors, with an impressive composite ERA of 2.59. He was recognized as the Mariners minor league pitcher of the year in 2016. Perhaps most noteworthy, Moore has registered a 1.58 BB/9 throughout his minor league career.

Jose Berrios' slight adjustments have had big payoffs, as 23-year-old thrives in Minnesota's rotation.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before.

Jose Berrios entered 2017 with his career arc somewhat in doubt. Formerly a top prospect, he’d struggled—no, he had outright failed—in his first extended look in the majors, and despite his youth and his raw stuff, even his most enthusiastic supporters were forced to admit that big changes were needed if he was going to turn himself into a valuable big-league hurler.

Corey Seager goes deep thrice, Anthony Rizzo keeps loving the leadoff spot, and Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger keep pace.

Notes on Franklin Barreto, Kyle Tucker, Dominic Smith, Dillon Tate, Monte Harrison, Sandy Baez, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Monte Harrison, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (Low-A, Wisconsin): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI
If it wasn’t for injuries, Harrison would be in a much higher level. But now that he is healthy, Harrison is showing off what made him so special. Plus runner, plus (to better) raw power, an arguably 80 arm, and a plus defender. He just needs more time at the plate and to stay healthy for it all to come together.

Deep League Report: Week 12

4

Scooter Hotz

Look! Decent starting pitchers! Grab 'em!

I’m not really sure what’s going on in the Deep League Report this week. Decent starting pitchers don’t show up here very often, but this week there’s one in each league. There might be some East Coast bias in play, too, since three of the six NL-only players featured this week are Mets. But enough with the prologue—on with the show.
