What You Need to Know: No Sale

0

Daniel Rathman

White Sox ace Chris Sale deals with injury issues, plus the action from Monday and what to watch today.

The Monday Takeaway
When Travis Wood stepped to the plate in the bottom of the second inning of yesterday’s Diamondbacks-Cubs series opener, he had six career home runs and a chance to do what few major-league pitchers even dream of. The left-hander slugged half of those half-dozen big flies last year—including one each of the solo, two-run, and grand slam varieties. He needed a three-run blast to complete the home-run cycle.

Interleague Report: Week One

5

Jeff Quinton

In the debut edition, Jeff looks at the DH options of the NL clubs who will visit AL parks and the lineup changes for AL clubs losing the DH.

I am excited to introduce our weekly fantasy baseball Interleague Report. With interleague play now being year-round, we can benefit from keeping tabs on teams that have played or will be playing games in opposing leagues. The plan is to give you helpful info whether it relates to daily or weekly lineups, waiver or FAAB pickups, or changes in positional eligibility. The Interleague Report will cover last week, this week, and the following week.

Rumor Roundup: Filling First Base

6

Daniel Rathman

The Astros and Mets create rumors at first base, and the A's try to pad out their injury-depleted rotation.

Astros “calling around” about available first-base types
After releasing long-ago top prospect Brett Wallace last week, the Astros are in the hunt for depth at first base, according to ESPN’s Jayson Stark.

The Mets try to get a power arm in return for Ike Davis, and the Rays' requests in David Price trade talks become clearer.

Mets hunting for power arms in exchange for Ike Davis
Since taking over the reins of the Mets in October 2010, general manager Sandy Alderson has done much of his best work on the trade market, exporting aging assets like Carlos Beltran and R.A. Dickey for high-end pitching prospects like Zack Wheeler and Noah Syndergaard. This offseason, Alderson is working with a much younger and less-accomplished trade chip, but when it comes to the return, he has mid-90s heat on his mind again.

Fantasy Freestyle: Putting Stock in the Best Hitters of the Second Half

6

Bret Sayre

These players excelled from July through the end of the regular season, but does that mean great things are in store in 2014?

It’s relatively easy to tell when a player has a full-on breakout. Matt Carpenter and Paul Goldschmidt both had easily the strongest seasons of their respective careers in 2013—it doesn’t take a baseball genius to figure that out. However, every pre-season, there is always be a lot of talk about how a player had a “breakout second half,” leading to talk that they will be able to build off that experience in the following season. At face value, that makes sense. But at face value, we’re also clearly dealing with sample size issues. For every Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson, who hinted at their offensive explosions towards the end of the prior season, there are many more who never capitalize on said promise.

For the purposes of this exercise, we’re going to be looking at hitters with a .900+ OPS during the second half of the previous season in at least 100 plate appearances. But before we dig into the 2013 members of this group, we’re going to take it one step further and look back at the last couple of seasons to see exactly how this control group fared.

Free Agent Watch: Looking Ahead to 2014

1

Bret Sayre

Fast forward to April, and these players might tempt you if they're sitting on your league's waiver wire.

With only four days left in the regular season, I’m going to do a slightly different take on our usual Free Agent Watch column before we morph into off-season mode. But speaking of off-season mode, I know even the most loyal BP readers are used to the fantasy section taking a couple of months off when the season ends. So my deepest apologies to those of you who were looking forward to time away from us—under my reign of terror as Fantasy Content Manager, you will be subjected to year-round fantasy analysis. And that includes some new things that I am very excited about.

But back to the task at hand, we are going around the diamond to spot players who are worthy of picking up in dynasty and high-volume keeper leagues with an eye squarely on 2014. And if the names I’m highlighting aren’t deep enough for some of you, I’ll be including a deep sleeper at each position as well (and if those aren’t deep enough for you, then you’re just going to have to be OK with that). In the words of future Poet Laureate Mike Skinner, let’s…push…things…forward.

Ben and Will discuss the confusing career of Ike Davis, then talk about whether there are any prospects teams wouldn't trade straight up for Giancarlo Stanton.

The Keeper Reaper: First, Third, and DH for 1/16/13

12

Michael Street

A look at fantasy corner infielders reveals two young hitters not quite ready for prime time, and Michael explains why he still doesn’t like Ike.

Brett Lawrie | Toronto Blue Jays
Shallow (30 keepers): No
Medium (60 keepers): Fringe
Deep (90 keepers): Yes
AL-only (60 keepers): Yes
Super Deep (200 keepers): Yes

Lawrie had an excellent 2011 major-league debut (albeit one tempered by two separate hand injuries that cost him more than a month’s worth of games), posting a .293/.373/.580 line with nine homers and seven steals in 171 plate appearances. Fantasy owners gobbled him up in the early rounds of the 2012 draft—even in expert leagues—and Lawrie seemed to be paying them off over the first half of the season. Through the end of June, he was hitting .293/.341/.438 with eight longballs and 11 steals in 320 plate appearances.

The tater trots for August 27 (and the full weekend).

Oof. Four days can feel like an eternity sometimes.

The tater trots for July 29: a walkoff from Anthony Rizzo and Carlos Gomez continues to fly around the bases.

It may have been a fun weekend for some baseball fans out there - Hanley Ramirez's go-ahead blast for the Dodgers, Ike Davis's three home runs on Saturday, another blast from Adam Dunn - but I can't help but focus on the horrific Nationals/Brewers game I was at yesterday. Francisco Rodriguez ruins an eighth-inning four run lead, John Axford blows two different leads, back-to-back home runs from Norichika Aoki and Carlos Gomez are wasted... and the worst thing is, this is routine these days for the Brewers. Not a lot of fun to be at a game like that.

David Wright's newfound plate discipline has helped him bat near .400 for the season's first two months, and an interview with Yu Darvish.

David Wright and Ike Davis play on opposite corners of the Mets' infield. Their hitting approaches and results in the first quarter of this season also couldn't be more opposite. Wright is off to the best start of what has been a fine career. The 29-year-old third baseman has a triple-slash line of .399/.497/.601 in 173 plate appearances. Now healthy after being limited to 102 games because of back problems last season, Wright seems to have taken his game to another level in 2012.
