    Keith Law recently ranked Alabama RHP Dylan Smith at 22 on his draft top 50.



    Also young for the class (doesn't turn 21 until late May), 12.1 K/9, 2.0 BB/9, 2.58 ERA this year. I'm convinced...

    Not yet counting Kimbrel as toast. Apparently the issues are similar to the ones they were able to tweak last year. I'm anticipating some brutal early season struggles, but hopefully he's back to...

    Bote's had 200 PAs against LHP. That's not a lot. But he still has basically the same BB%, K%, and ISO as he does against RHP. Players get so few PAs against LHPs that it's tough to take their actual...

    BA highlighted Pinango and DJ Herz as potential breakout prospects for 2021. Apparently Herz made a delivery adjustment that resulted in a velocity and spin rate jump.

    They likely would have saved about a million vs slot given the bonus Yorke got. I like Yorke's general profile enough, but being able to maybe overslot a guy in round 2 would have had me down. More...

    The Angels knew they were going to be underwater on the latter half of the deal. It's the same reasoning people always use with big pitcher contracts. The bad break was Pujols becoming unusable as a...

    Hmmm...Justin Turner should actually be informative for this kind of hitter. I certainly think more years would be involved. So, maybe the $60M/3 makes sense as a starting offer for the Cubs and they...

    Players who walk, don't strike out, and hit for power are hard to find. The Cubs don't have many long-term commitments. If everything is looking alright with Rizzo's back, I'd go for it provided you...

    I think an offer like that might make Rizzo walk away from the negotiating table entirely, at least this spring. He still projects to be a really good hitter, even an excellent one by PECOTA. I think...

    Really excited to see if Abbott finally gets a real shot. My hope is that he's the first one up from Iowa (if Alzolay is on the big league roster, that is).
