Fantasy Freestyle: The Evolution and Decline of Francisco Lindor

10

George Bissell

His home runs are up, but what about his batting average and stolen bases? Lindor hasn't been nearly as valuable as in recent seasons, and it seems to stem from an early season power surge.

The Call-Up: Josh Hader

0

Jeffrey Paternostro and George Bissell

The hard-throwing lefty takes his fastball/slider combo to the Brewers' bullpen, for now.

The Situation: The pipeline of prospects keeps coming in Milwaukee. Shortly after calling up Brett Phillips, the Brewers have added their top pitching prospect Josh Hader to the bullpen mix.

The Background: Hader was the Orioles' 19th-round draft pick in 2012. A local prep arm, he burst onto prospect radars with a dominant professional debut in short-season ball that summer. His full-season debut went swimmingly as well. Hader struck out nearly a batter per inning as a 19-year-old in the South Atlantic League before he was dealt to the Astros at the deadline as part of the Bud Norris package. The lefty wasn’t done wandering yet, though (he even looks the part of a well-traveled roadie).

The Call-Up: Jacob Faria

John Eshleman and George Bissell

So close and yet so Far(ia)

The Situation: Faria has pushed his way up the 40-man depth chart, earning this chance by carving up the International League. He’ll start Wednesday against the White Sox after the Rays lost Matt Andriese to injury and played a weekend doubleheader, leaving them in need of a starter this week.

George, Mike, and Bret Sayre banter about the brawl in San Francisco, Mike Trout’s injury, and discuss BP’s in-season fantasy rankings updates at starting pitcher, outfield, and relief pitcher.
