TDGX Transactions: Week 8

0

J.J. Jansons

Matt Adams gets newfound attention. Max Moroff continues to rake in the minors.

The Dynasty Guru Experts League is a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league founded by BP managing editor Bret Sayre in 2014. It is intended to satisfy the deep-league needs of all, down to just the right amount of Alexi Amarista. We roster 23 starters (C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI, along with two additional utility hitters, five outfielders and nine pitchers). We also roster seven bench slots and have 10 spots designated for minor leaguers, although a quick scan of the league finds that most teams utilize most of their bench spots for additional prospects. That means that there are an additional 100-120 prospects that are rostered above the 200 spots reserved for them.

These write-ups are intended to pair nicely with Mike Gianella’s Expert FAAB Review, as we will look at each week’s TDGX free-agent acquisitions, as well as include thoughts on every major trade that occurs during the season. The yearly budget for free-agent transactions is $100, with $0 bids allowed for major leaguers and prospects.

The Stash List: Eighth Edition

8

Greg Wellemeyer

Yoan Moncada reaches Chicago, but it's just so a doctor can look at his hand. Hunter Pence can be a reliable offensive source, when healthy. Carlos Rodon is inching closer to a major-league return.

The Graduates: Travis d’Arnaud (Previous Rank: 7), Dwight Smith, Jr. (23)

After missing three weeks, d’Arnaud was activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Deep League Report: Week 8

2

Scooter Hotz

Anthony Alford gets a chance with the Jays and Jared Hoying gets one with the Rangers.

The over-under for the number of starting pitchers featured in the Deep League Report each week is 0.5. This week, we have 3.5. Hope you pounded the over. On the offensive side, we have a couple of players on opposite sides of the same platoon trying to take playing time from each other, and a veteran infielder with a good-glove, no-bat reputation tearing the cover off the ball. This game, it’ll make you cry. Seriously. There’s a link to some sincere tears in the NL-only section. Let’s get going.

TDGX Transactions: Week 7

Tommy Pham has legs. Do you know Yanio Perez? What's Max Scherzer's trade value?

The Stash List: Week 7

4

Greg Wellemeyer

Blake Snell, Amed Rosario, Jharel Cotton, Dan Vogelbach, Jose De Leon, Sean Newcomb and Harrison Bader are among the biggest movers up the list. Jose Berrios and Bradley Zimmer aren't on the list anymore—but it's OK, because they got promoted.

The Graduates: Bradley Zimmer (Previous Rank: 2), Jose Berrios (5), Welington Castillo (6), Lucas Duda (14), Amir Garrett (23), Raimel Tapia (24)

Zimmer made his major-league debut Tuesday and struck out three times in three plate appearances. He’s gonna have more games like that. He’ll also chip in some power and speed, and should hold down at least the strong side of a platoon for the duration.

Deep League Report: Week 7

0

Scooter Hotz

Another played named Daniel Robertson, taking a shot with some non-closers, and the Eddie Butler revival.

The hitting options in this week’s Deep League Report are thin, especially in the AL. The pitching is pretty interesting, though, particularly on the AL side, where there are several relievers with double-digit K/9 potential. Beyond that, there’s a recently traded outfielder who’s been getting a lot of playing time in his new home, a hitter on the wrong side of a platoon who hasn’t been good since 2015 and a starting pitcher filling in on a team that’s close to a lock for the playoffs. OK, no more spoilers. Just keep reading.

Deep League Report: Week 6

10

Scooter Hotz

Slim Pickens was a great character actor, but is not what you want in the world of fantasy free agency.

Some weeks, a few of the players profiled in the Deep League Report will be interesting in shallower leagues, too. This is not one of those weeks. It’s ugly out there in deep AL-only and NL-only leagues. Be careful.

The Stash List: Fifth Edition

7

Greg Wellemeyer

Twenty-five guys—some top prospects, some major-leaguers already—who are lurking and, perhaps, ready to contribute to fantasy rosters in 2017. It's just a matter of when.

The Graduates: Didi Gregorius (Previous Rank: 3)

Gregorius was activated last Friday and has started each of the Yankees games since.

Deep League Report: Week 5

2

Scooter Hotz

Middle relievers with good rate stats, catchers who play, guys filling in during injuries. Some of them could help your team.

Unlike a week ago, there are no big names or hot prospects in this week’s Deep League Report, just the usual collection of players on the bad side of platoons, backups and non-closing relievers. Feels like home. Come on in, I’ll pour you a drink and turn on one of the West Coast games.

The Stash List: Fourth Edition

14

Greg Wellemeyer

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)

Deep League Report: Week 4

4

Scooter Hotz

Big names from the prospect world enter the morass of utility players and middle relievers.

A couple of notable call-ups are mixed in with the usual cast of utility players and middle relievers in today’s column. Hang the garland, pop the champagne and fire up the band—it’s a banner week here at the Deep League Report.

The Stash List: Third Edition

13

Greg Wellemeyer

Julio Urias might need just a little more stretching in the minors before the Dodgers promote him. Bradley Zimmer can't stay stuck in the minors forever. Get ready to ride the Reynaldo Lopez train!

It’s week three of the Stash List and things are moving. We’ve got some graduates, some dropouts, some new blood. Let’s get on with it.

The Graduates: Joe Ross (Previous rank: 5), Martin Prado (8), Joey Gallo (20)
