The resemblance between Luis Severino and Chris Archer is starting to become striking.
"My plan is just to keep growing, each and every day, not trying to focus too far down the road."
We can no longer look at Addison Russell as a glove-first, bat-second player.

Notes on Yadier Alvarez, Zach Shepherd, Josh Hader, Mark Appel, Nick Senzel, and more.
Hitter of the Day:
, 3B, Zach Shepherd (High-A Lakeland): 2-3, 2 Detroit Tigers , 2 R, 2 BB , 4 HR , K RBI
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi! Signed by Detroit as a 16-year-old from Sydney, Shepherd announced his stateside presence with authority during a stellar GCL debut back in 2014, but has failed to move the needle much since. He hit a whopping .186 in his first go against High-A pitching last year, but so far, so much better in 2017, as a return engagement has brought a .306/.400/.556 line through his first 20 games this season. There isn’t a carrying tool here, but the glove is decent at third and there’s some intriguing raw material with the bat.
Toronto has a very bad day, Washington goes crazy at Coors Field, and the Red Sox and Yankees play fast for once.

Lots of changes at the top and the free-falling Royals sink all the way to the bottom.

Notes on Cody Reed, Erick Fedde, Kyle Tucker, Will Craig, Dylan Cozens, and more.
Pitcher of the Day:
, LHP, Cody Reed (Low-A, Kane County): 6 Arizona Diamondbacks , 0 IP , 0 R, H , 11 BB K
After suffering through a dead arm period last July, the other Cody Reed has gotten off to a quality start in Kane County. While his arsenal is average, his advanced strike-throwing ability has flummoxed hitters thus far. The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level.

Gift Ngoepe makes his MLB debut, Aaron Judge and Luis Severino shine, and a Little League game breaks out in Baltimore.

White Sox prodigy Yoan Moncada takes over the top spot.
Some weeks the Stash List is a re-shuffle of the previous version, a low-key graduation or two. This is not one of those weeks.
The Graduates: ( Julio Urias Previous Rank: 1), ( Michael Conforto 4), ( Devin Mesoraco 9), ( Cody Bellinger 14), ( Aaron Altherr 17), ( Dan Vogelbach 19), ( Kennys Vargas 21) The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.
George Bissell, Bret Sayre and Mike Gianella of Baseball Prospectus discuss Eric Thames ridiculous hot streak, realistic expectations for Cody Bellinger and Dan Vogelbach, and analyze the latest FAAB acquisitions in the Tout Wars and LABR expert leagues. King Felix looks shakier than ever, Trea Turner goes for the cycle, Danny Duffy dares everyone, and Eric Thames did it again.
The Tuesday Takeaway
After two seasons of slipping velocity, miscellaneous injury struggles, and other various signs of the aging process,
is no longer the ace that was once crowned king. He’s still, for the most part, recognizably himself—just less consistently and often less effectively and simply Felix Hernandez less so. But decline in and of itself is neither interesting nor surprising; it’s the how and the when that provide that color. For Felix, this year seems potentially key to answering both. Were last season’s career-worst numbers truly the beginning of the end, or just an anomalous spike on a gentle downward slope? His first four starts of the season didn’t do so much to provide context there, but his fifth was a discouraging nod toward the former. Read the full article...
