Tyler Austin is back on the radar. Should we just ignore him? Also, what does the future of Stephen Vogt hold in Milwaukee? And while it's true that Flags Fly Forever, is the same true for Cameron Perkins?

Welcome back to The FAAB Review, the weekly series that looks at FAAB bidding in expert leagues to help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Every week, I closely scrutinize the expert free agent bids in LABR Mixed, Tout Wars NL, and LABR AL.

As a reminder, LABR uses a $100 budget with $1 minimum bids, while Tout Wars uses a $1,000 budget with $0 minimum bids. LABR and Tout Wars use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET for all FAAB claims. Any statistics mentioned in this article are through the previous Sunday’s games.

The Buyer's Guide: Mike Montgomery

0

Eric Roseberry

Mike Montgomery has been effective for the Cubs as a starting pitcher. But what does that have to do with the price of beans as it relates to your fantasy team?

The first two months of this season, Mike Montgomery was a solid option out of the bullpen for the Cubs. In those initial 36 2/3 innings, he held a 2.21 ERA and struck out 26 batters. While he was getting opportunities to pitch, he wasn’t going to get save chances. Thus, Montgomery wasn’t on the radar of many fantasy owners. Montgomery’s situation changed June 9.

The Cubs were looking for a pitcher to fill a spot in the starting rotation due to Kyle Hendricks' stint on the disabled list, and Montgomery ran with the opportunity. In his first start, he gave up two earned runs against the Rockies in four innings. He surrendered two earned runs in his next start. Montgomery hasn’t given up an earned run in his past two starts, and he’s struck out 10 over the course of those 12 innings. That’s the kind of production that will get the attention of fantasy owners.

Cameron Maybin and Mallex Smith make for valuable speedsters in mixed leagues, while Matt Adams continues to show value filling in for Freddie Freeman. Meanwhile, it's time to talk Turley—Nik Turley—and to speak Franchy—Franchy Cordero.

TDGX Transactions: Week 7

1

J.J. Jansons

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

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.
