Notes on Franklin Barreto, Forrest Whitley, Ronald Acuna, Mitch Keller, Kyle Wright, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Franklin Barreto, MI, Oakland Athletics (Triple-A Nashville): 4-5, 3 R, 3B, HR, 4 RBI, K
After a few inconsistent months in the middle of the season, Barreto has finally settled into a decent groove over the past few weeks. Amid the struggles at both Triple A and in his brief big-league introduction it’s worth a friendly reminder that he is still 21 years old, and enthusiasm for his long-term offensive projection should in no way have dampened this summer.

On the 24th episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. and guest host Zach Crizer reflect on Jered Weaver's career and, most importantly, his impact on Jeff Sullivan's tweets. Then it's on to the moves of the past few days, including Chris Hatcher's move to Oakland and the Twins' gigantic new starting pitcher.

It's another episode of the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

This week we talked to Rob Arthur of FiveThirtyEight and Jim Albert, professor of mathematics and statistics at Bowling Green State University about Rob's article Baseball’s ‘Hot Hand’ Is Real, co-authored by Greg Matthews assistant professor of statistics at Loyola University Chicago. We covered specifics of the article and the research behind it and also delved into how we can present statistical analysis to the general public in a way that's both rigorous and accessible.

Flu-Like Symptoms: Pitching Panacea?

9

Rob Mains

If you can't beat 'em, partially eliminate 'em.

This isn’t my idea. (Always a rousing way to start an article!) You may read this and conclude that I’m a moron. I’m not saying that’s wrong! I’m just saying that your logic in saying so may be fallacious, if you’re basing it on the proposal here. It isn’t mine. I’m just reporting it.

Craig Wright is a prominent baseball analyst. He was the first front office sabermetrician for the Rangers, way back in 1981. During a 10-year stint with the Dodgers, he’s widely credited with promoting the abilities of 62nd-round draft pick Mike Piazza.

Notes on Alec Hansen, Joey Wentz, Gavin Lux, Yordan Alvarez, Patrick Mazeika, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Patrick Mazeika, C/1B, New York Mets (Double-A, Binghamton): 3-6, 2 R, 3 2B, 3 RBI, K
Mazeika has shown an ability to hit, it could be a plus tool for him. But the rest of the profile is tough; he has a below-average arm and doesn’t catch well, limiting him behind the plate. He doesn’t have a lot of over-the-fence power either, which makes first base a tougher profile than catcher. Hitters find a way, though.

Rookies look good for the Mets, Aroldis Chapman looks bad for the Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton hits no. 44, and Miguel Sano does his Brooks Robinson impression.

Notes on Stephen Gonsalves, Dakota Hudson, Brock Stewart, Eric Skoglund, Brian Miller, Brock Burke, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Brian Miller, OF, Miami Marlins (Low-A, Greensboro): 4-4, 3 R, 4 2B, 4 RBI, BB
Chosen 36th overall in the 2017 draft, Miller looks like an everyday player in center field, which would be big for the team. While the only tool that stands out is plus speed, he has a knack for making contact, getting balls in the outfield, and getting on base.
