What You Need to Know: Weekend Wrap-Up, 6/9

17

Daniel Rathman

How the Manny Machado incident(s) occurred, Jose Bautista's big night, the Tigers' bullpen problems, and more, plus what to watch today.

The Weekend Takeaway
By the bottom of the eighth inning of Sunday’s series finale, the Athletics and Orioles had seen just about enough of each other. With the A’s up 10-0 in the rubber match at Camden Yards, Fernando Abad threw at Manny Machado twice, and the second straight tight one led Machado to chuck his bat toward third baseman Alberto Callaspo:

In the debut edition of this series, the fantasy team looks at players who could outperform their PECOTA projections in batting average.

One of the fun ways we all try to outsmart our opponents in fantasy is by searching for hidden value in players who, for one reason or another, we suspect have the ability to outpace their projections (and, relatedly, their draft cost). Our Darkhorses series features staff picks for players who could very well outpace their PECOTA projections for the year and finish at the top of one of the standard five-by-five categories. We’ve all picked one player currently projected by PECOTA to fall just shy of the top 10 (in the 11 to 25 range) and one longer shot player currently projected outside of the top 25. We’ll take a look at offense this week and pitching next. To kick things off here is a bounty of hidden treasure in the batting average department:

OUTSIDE THE TOP 10

What You Need to Know: Monday in Playoff Implications

7

Daniel Rathman

The Pirates and Reds clinch postseason appearances, Texas goes to town on the Astros, and the Orioles have an ugly night.

Defensive Play(s) of the Day
That’s right—we’re starting with the defensive play of the day, and it comes from the bottom of the ninth inning of the Pirates-Cubs game at Wrigley Field. With two away and Nate Schierholtz on first, representing the tying run, Ryan Sweeney singled to right field off of Jason Grilli. That should have put runners at the corners and brought Brian Bogusevic to the plate, but Marlon Byrd booted the ball.

Cubs third base coach David Bell saw the misplay in right-center field and decided to go all in on Schierholtz’s wheels versus Andrew McCutchen’s arm. That gamble, thanks to a fine throw from the center fielder and an outstanding relay by Justin Morneau, proved unwise.

Skewed Left: The Literal Rise of the Shortstops

3

Zachary Levine

Manny Machado, Xander Bogaerts, and Carlos Correa could spearhead another growth spurt at a position where the players keep getting bigger.

If your Creator or your chromosomes or whatever combination of the two you deem responsible for such things didn’t make you short enough to play shortstop, then you just have to get that short yourself.

That’s Xander Bogaerts’ key to being a tall shortstop. The superb Red Sox prospect and rookie big leaguer is listed at 6’ 3”, claims 6’ 2”, and realizes that when he’s at the position, he has to act like he’s 5’ 9”.

Fantasy Freestyle: Ditch or Play Down the Stretch

8

Mike Gianella

Mike runs down 10 players who have hurt their fantasy owners in recent weeks and explains whether you should ride out their ruts or cut bait.

If you’re in an NL- or AL-only league, your bed is made with all of the big-ticket items on your roster. Starlin Castro might be a disappointment, but at this point he’s your disappointment. You’re not going to cut him for a back-up middle infielder in the free agent pool who is going to get three to five at-bats a week.

In mixed leagues, however, these are the types of players you have to make choices on down the stretch. A number of mixed leaguers have already cut the cord with Castro. However, there are other players who might be worthy of tossing off of your roster, or at least keeping on reserve for the time being. Below are a handful of players who are slumping yet mostly owned in mixed leagues. Should you hang on or try to find better stats elsewhere?

Pebble Hunting: A Week of Watching Manny Machado

11

Sam Miller

Visual confirmation that the Orioles' young third baseman is already good at baseball, and going to get better.

Last summer, when Ron Washington was asked about Mike Trout, he anticipated the questioner's tendency to overreact to hot young things: 

"He's not Willie Mays. No, he's not Willie Mays. He's a pretty good player. I think the comparisons, y'all got to stop. Let that kid play."

Two bright, young players are struggling. Should we worry about each one to an equal extent?

Last weekend the Twins and Orioles met in Baltimore for a three-game set. Of the various subplots to come from the series—including the O's losing two more one-run games—the one with the most long-term impact could be the continued struggles of Manny Machado and Aaron Hicks, two young, gifted players with the potential to have long, glamorous careers but who are currently playing below their expectations.

Although technically no longer a rookie, Machado remains the youngest everyday player in the American League. His play last season—as a 20-year-old inserted into a postseason race—obscured this fact, save for a rough postseason. However, Machado's 6-for-30 start to the new year is bringing it back into focus. He's almost unfathomably young and that makes him a difficult player to evaluate during times of extreme play. Think of it as the Mike Trout corollary: highly skilled youth are capable of what their numbers say they are until they aren't.

The Orioles are confounding for projection season.

Adam Jones doesn’t like predictions. And really, if you were coming off a playoff berth, you wouldn’t like being told by someone that you’d finish last, either.
