Minor League Update: Games of June 20

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.

Fantasy Freestyle: Alex Wood: Elite Fantasy Performer?

1

Eric Roseberry

Alex Wood has been an All-Star caliber performer for the Dodgers, putting it all together at age 26. Will he sustain his terrific start to 2017?

Just over a week ago, Mike Gianella released his updated In-Season Fantasy Valuations. There weren’t a ton of surprises in terms of who was providing the most fantasy value. However, on his National League starting pitcher list there was a name that stood out. Situated in eighth, behind fantasy stalwarts like Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, and Stephen Strasburg, was Alex Wood.

How the draft actually works now.

MLB held its annual draft last week. That snoring sound that you hear is amateur scouts and prospect writers all over the country finally getting a well-deserved nap. We won’t really know the final results of the draft for another decade or so. Maybe one team just drafted two Hall of Famers, like the Royals did in 1979. As someone who is decidedly not a prospect writer, I think I’ll just pick a team at random and say that they “won” the draft. (They’re all mostly guessing anyway.)

With malace toward none but stolen bases toward many, here's Mallex Smith.

Derek Fisher was sent down, but he'll be back, and was worth bidding on.

Welcome back to The FAAB Review, the weekly series that looks at FAAB bidding in expert leagues to help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Every week, I closely scrutinize the expert free agent bids in LABR Mixed, Tout Wars NL, and LABR AL.

As a reminder, LABR uses a $100 budget with $1 minimum bids, while Tout Wars uses a $1,000 budget with $0 minimum bids. LABR and Tout Wars use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET for all FAAB claims. Any statistics mentioned in this article are through the previous Sunday’s games.

Coming off one of his best non-Marlins seasons, the infielder-turned-designated hitter has disappointed.

Cody Bellinger breaks records, Clayton Kershaw has an off night, the Marlins walk it off, and Anthony Rizzo plays the leadoff role again.

The Monday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Minnesota's hitting and defense look ready for prime time, but the pitching remains a mess.

Monday was an off day for the Twins, and boy did they need it. As of Friday night they sat atop the American League Central, the unlikely owners of a 34-29 record following a disastrous 103-loss season. Then the second-place Indians came to town for a three-day, four-game series at Target Field and swept the Twins out of first place, thoroughly thrashing Minnesota by a 28-8 aggregate score. In less than 48 hours the Twins went from surprising division leaders to looking like merely something that the defending American League champions had to step over on their inevitable climb back to the playoffs.
