Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

X-rays on Yonder Alonso's right wrist came back negative.
Alonso was lifted from Tuesday's game after being hit by a pitch, but he's managed to escape with just a bruise. He'll probably still be sore for a bit, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit out a game or two. Alonso just returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing time with a knee injury.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Bautista crushing. Peripherals are confusing. Hitting less grounders, striking out more purely because he's making less contact. Nothing else seems crazy. His new mean just may be something like 350 OBP with 30 home runs now?

Hand is not officially closer, says Padres skip Andy Green. They'll take it situation by situation going forward, he says.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

MLBTR reporting that the Padres are actively marketing Hand. Still worth picking up, but don't expect the saves to last for too long.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Top 20 pitcher? Or top 20 overall player?
The only pitcher I would have inside the top 20 overall for dynasty is Kershaw.

Ive been a lot lower on Thor than most people for the past 2 years, but my reason was/is for exactly what happened - major injury is always going to be a concern.
At this time I dont think id consider Thor even a top 40 dynasty asset.

Thank god they sent Jeff Hoffman down. Otherwise I'd probably pick up, gasp, a Rockies pitcher!

Tulo/Donaldson being activated before tonight's game.

Manaea pushed up to start tonight, Cotton coming back tomorrow, no reason or word why Graveman was pushed back

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Also, nothing official yet, but J McCann going to DL moves Avila back to primary C (and is playing 1B in 1st game of DH today). His OPS is right below Harper/Conforto, so if you need a Catcher for the next 10 days or so, he's a solid grab

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Unconvinced on Lomo, but def other 2. Also Avila with another HR tonight...

edit: Guess unconvinced is bad wording, think he's a solid pickup, but injury prone (and likely running hot), and so many good 1B being picked up clogging Util's, just so little room

Hope you're right. Been playing Catcher roulette the whole year before going without for a week. Have gotten 5 runs, 1 hr and 5 rbi out of the position so far this season.
