Miami's outfielder is attempting to accomplish a feat few others can claim.

Justin Ruggiano is having one of the league’s most surprising seasons. He entered Sunday with 245 plate appearances, a .324 batting average, and strikeouts in 25.3 percent of his plate appearances. Intuitively, we all know striking out more than a quarter of the time makes it tough to be a productive hitter, and nearly impossible to post a high average. Yet Ruggiano is angling to join an exclusive club of players with more than 250 plate appearances in a season, a strikeout rate above 25 percent, and a batting average of .300 or better:

Our 2003 cover-boy once had a bright future, but surgeries on both knees limited his development. Now that Joshua Lee Phelps is in pinstripes, Marc sorts out what happened to him, and what lies ahead.

Josh Phelps graduated from Lakeland High School in Idaho in 1996, finishing fourth in his class and earning Most Valuable Player honors for his baseball achievements there. The Toronto Blue Jays made him selection number 279 overall in the 1996 amateur draft, and his professional debut came at Medicine Hat at age 18. Phelps did not display much in the way of offensive ability during his first three professional seasons:

Fantasy Focus: Building a Fantasy Farm System

0

Jeff Erickson

Jeff wonders if fantasy owners should stock their farm system with young hitters or young pitchers.

Is the same true of a fantasy farm system? I've always believed so, and my experiences in keeper leagues have only reinforced that point of view. Take the RotoWire Staff League as an example. We now have three years under our belt, in an 18-team league where each team starts the year with a 10-man minor league roster. In those three years, I've drafted 19 minor leaguers (because some of those draftees were retained, I didn't have the full complement of 10 picks each season) and traded for three others:

There are signs that teams "get it." I don't think it's any secret that the Blue Jays are one of the teams that get it. Sprung from the brain of the Athletics like Athena, the front office put together by J.P. Ricciardi can compete with the braintrust of any team. Despite revenue problems, hamstrung by contracts written in a bygone era, and having to play in the same division as the Red Sox and Yankees, the Blue Jays definitely "get it" and are headed for success.

ANAHEIM ANGELS Placed RHP Al Levine on the 15-day DL (shoulder tendinitis), retroactive to 6/27; recalled RHP John Lackey from Salt Lake. [6/28] I don't disagree with the idea of bringing up John Lackey to move into the rotation. Lackey is the organization's best upper-level prospect, and he's obviously ready to go.

Recalled RHP Matt Wise from Salt Lake; optioned RHP John Lackey to Salt Lake. [6/25]
