Free Agent Watch: Week Seven

Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre

If these players are on your league's waiver wire, they might be worth considering, depending on the format in which you play.

Welcome back to our weekly walk through some of the players who may want to keep an extra eye on in your leagues. Mike and I will be tackling this topic on Thursdays again and focusing on a singular hitter and pitcher in four of the more popular formats: shallow mixed, deep mixed, NL-only and AL-only. These are certainly not the only players who are worth pickups, but it gives us a nice opportunity to write about players we have close tabs on in our leagues.

Rumor Roundup: Competition in Coors

5

Daniel Rathman

The Rockies try to settle on a center fielder, and the Yankees consider moving a catcher.

Rockies’ center-field competition a four-horse race
Most teams that have openings in their starting lineup are holding spring training competitions for two players or, in some cases, three. The Rockies? They’ve got four players contending to be manager Walt Weiss’ primary center fielder.

Five to Watch: American League Hitters

7

Bret Sayre

Leonys Martin leads off a list that includes three outfielders, a third baseman, and a shortstop.

While it’s true that spring training statistics are barely worth the internet parchment on which they are printed, spring training performances are another story. Racking up impressive statistics has little to no value to you, the fantasy player, but overall performances beget changes in player roles and confidence (or lack thereof) in player health. And it’s the contextual nature of the performance that is a net positive or negative for a player’s fantasy value in the upcoming season. To paraphrase a modern-day proverb, Rick Porcello doesn’t have to be faster than the bear, he just has to be faster than Drew Smyly to get a fantasy bump for the 2013 season.

This mini-series will focus on players who have a chance to increase or decrease their fantasy values based on their performances during spring training. And we’ll start by looking at some American League hitters.

Age 27 is often thought of as the time when players peak, but sometimes it's just the opposite.

Eight months ago, I wrote about the saddest age-27 seasons in recent history, the idea being that age-27 is, if not the panacea that turns every player into his best self, at least the last year that we pay attention to post-hype sleepers. Or, as I wrote, “It’s the year when, if you hit .253/.289/.418 in the PCL, smart people will probably quit writing spring training love letters calling you the comeback kid.” That was about Brandon Wood, who ended up hitting .259/.313/.409 in the PCL. I can’t tell you how happy I am that nobody has identified a year of my life when I’m supposed to stop feeling good about myself.

But if baseball's age 27 lasts just one season for each player, it lasts forever for us—we get older, but 27-year-olds stay the same age—and so this year there was a whole new group of age-27s. Here are 10 potential nails in coffins, ranked by dispiritability.

Our take on Tuesday's surprising three-team trade involving the Diamondbacks, Indians, and Reds.

What turned Drew Stubbs from the player he was to the player he is?

Casting Drew Stubbs as a bench player a few years ago seemed delusional. Nowadays, it makes more sense. Performances trending the wrong way have transformed Stubbs from one of the game’s exciting, well-rounded talents into a frustrating enigma. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty—having strengthened his outfield already by re-signing Ryan Ludwick and transitioning Billy Hamilton to center—kept looking for additional support by eyeing Colorado’s Dexter Fowler and Cleveland’s Shin-Soo Choo. Jocketty pulled the trigger last night, landing Choo and sending Stubbs to Cleveland in a three-way trade. Stubbs’ downfall in Cincinnati merits the question—how did things get so bad, so quickly?

The Reds drafted Stubbs with the no. 8 pick in the 2006 draft, one pick behind Clayton Kershaw and two picks ahead of Tim Lincecum. The University of Texas product shot through the minors. He reached Triple-A in his second professional season, and the majors in his third. Although Stubbs’ official rookie season encompassed 42 games, he managed to smack eight home runs and steal 10 bases during the cameo. By the end of his unofficial rookie season, Stubbs had 30 home runs and 40 steals (on 50 tries) in 779 trips to the plate. Add in stellar defensive play and stardom seemed like a given.

Resident Fantasy Genius: Winners, Losers of Trades That Didn't Happen

5

Derek Carty

Plenty of well-documented rumors came to nothing last week, and Derek looks at what the lack of activity means for your team.

I’ve spent the last week and a half breaking down the fantasy ramifications of every deal that was made at this year’s non-waiver trade deadline, but lost in this shuffle were the players who figured to benefit from (or be hurt by) a trade that never happened.  Today, I’m going to shine some light on a few of these guys.

Future Shock: Who Would You Rather?

Kevin Goldstein

When confronted with the chance to take Yoenis Cespedes or a big-leaguer, who do big-league scouts and execs choose?

Now that Yu Darvish is a Texas Ranger, all of the attention on the international market has gone to Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes. Now that Cespedes has established residency in the Dominican Republic and is eligible to sign, the spotlight is growing brighter. His U.S.-based representative, Adam Katz, insists that Cespedes will be in camp with a team. Since he could sign soon, talk now turns to how good the outfielder will be in the majors.

The tater trots for June 17 & 18, including an inside-the-park home run from Drew Stubbs.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Enjoy your special day. And if you ever feel the need to celebrate something today, I hear a home run trot is a pretty good way to do it.
