    For those curious, yes even after over half a season of baseball, you can drastically raise your OPS overnight. Garver went from .849 before yesterday's game to .886 today. The wonders of 5 PAs at...

    I agree in that I'm not sure whether everything is measurable (especially when it comes to catchers), but, for what it's worth, DRS has Suzuki pegged for 3 defensive runs saved above average for...

    I think it's interesting to reflect on how the season progresses and doesn't necessarily change opinions on TD, but brings different voices to the forefront. Going into the season, I think it was a...

    Report from the farm is that Garver smashed 3 long ones today vs. Ft. Wayne for 5 RBI. Going into the game, he had 4 HR in the last 90 days, so he was due for a power surge, but I'm not sure anyone...

    Seeing that 5-RBI night for Ortiz, I wouldn't mind him putting on a Twins uniform and covering LF when (not if) Hammer gets traded. Seeing the young guys get playing time is quickly looking like the...

    Exactly. I know that people on TD are dedicated to following the Twins, but if you've been watching them the last few years, then you begin to appreciate how hard it is to find average starting...

    Peterson has only pitched twice in the last 10 days.
    In a game against the Palm Beach Cardinals he relieved Steve Gruver who had one runner on base with one out in the eighth. He allowed a double...

    I noticed that Kvasnicka hasn't been playing catcher anymore, so I guess he's a pure OF now? Maybe I was wrong to group him with Herrmann then, but at this point I would have thought that having...

    I guess I'm not clear on how the college option works for draftees deciding not to sign; could someone clarify?

    If someone signs with a four-year school, is there a minimum number of years they...

    Considering it's a thread on the OF of the future (and not a(nother) Dozier trade thread :D), I figured I'd try to spark some discussion about less-heralded OF contributors.

    Does anyone know what...

    Actually, Bbref keeps track of ML splits separately. But it does combine in the minor league screen.

    So, in theory, you could subtract the ML split PAs from the totals shown in the minor league...

    There's also one further over of him hitting a homerun while batting left-handed from early July. So he's been hitting switch (again) since at least the beginning of the month...probably longer?

    I was going to ask the same thing. Looks like it must have been plain WAR. Even with oWAR, there's the position bonus, so a great-hitting 1B isn't going to look as good on the chart because they...

    In 11 ABs (4 games) since his four-for-four-Fourth, Barrie has only managed one hit. Over the same span, he struck out 3 times and walked 3 times. Nothing too concerning. At this point, playing...

    Garver made his return to the Kernels on the 5th of July and proceeded to hit in 7 straight games. His hitting streak ended yesterday, but he did take a walk and score a run. It appears that the...

    I see what you're saying. WAR isn't a counting stat because it can count backwards, but it's a cumulative stat in that a player needs to play a lot of innings defensively or acquire a lot of PAs to...

    It's already been mentioned here before... but it's almost too enticing to think of what peak-level, career-numbers, highly-respected Suzuki could fetch midseason in a market desperate for ML-caliber...

    I'm not 100% on all the 40-man rules, but doesn't Meyer need to be added to the 40 this offseason to protect him from Rule 5 anyway? I don't see the harm in adding him in September and letting him...
