    Elvis is hitting the ball well, just at defenders. His weird defensive decline makes absolutely no sense, but it seems like its more a mental thing than physical limitations. Considering what he is...

    Delino DeShields Jr

    He has been inexplicably underestimated in his career (well, partly so... he has a frustrating tendency to take plays off) but has performed very well at every level he has played at, including the...

    I see Gallo getting a call after the first month of 2016, like Kris Bryant got this year. Alfaro will see significant AAA time. He is still striking out a third of the time and needs to develop a...

    We have three really strong outfield prospects in Brinson, Williams and Mazara, but I think your projection for 2016 is very ambitious. All three guys are superb athletes but are lacking in skills...

    Choo isn't playing well, but his BABIP of .138 is one of the lowest numbers in the league. Nothing about his stats say decline, so we will see if the bad luck will simply stabilize. I can't, however,...

    Currently, the average value for 1 WAR on the free agent market is a little over $5mm. Even when Hamilton was pretty bad for the Angels, he has never had a WAR less than 1.5. So if he just plays like...

    From what I'm hearing, Rangers get Hamilton and pick up a little less than $15mm of his salary. Angels eat the rest. Texas will send no players back, just "future considerations".

    Rangers will finish in the top 10 in runs this year, just like they always do. One game, or 5 games or 10 games is still a tiny fraction of the season. Be patient.

    And injuries at that level are...
