    This is the crazy part to me. $1.5M is practically a rounding error for a major league club, and Houston has been running some of the lowest payrolls in baseball the past few years. Nix and Aiken for...

    From the Reds, what do you think of Ben Lively? He seems intriguing.

    From the Cardinals, what about Jon Jay? Two years of control left after 2014. Not a perfect fit, but at the moment there are...

    Is independent ball still an option? I recall players (specifically Matt Harrington) who didn't sign going to play for independent teams back in the early 2000s. They played one year and then were...

    There has been a lot of important news for Alex Meyer since my last update.

    First, Meyer has pitched in three games:
    6/23
    Another marginal start for Meyer. He wasn’t able to finish the 4th...

    Ouch is right. Poor guy. I'm kind of surprised that elbow and shoulder MRIs aren't part of the standard pre-draft medicals.

    Assuming this is only temporary until Plouffe or Nunez come off the DL (or until Santana is deemed healthy), what impact will this have on his service time calculations going forward?

    This was my speculation two weeks ago:



    Depending on how much you buy into the 120-pitch 'test' that Trevor May underwent as part of his development, it is possible that Meyer underwent a...

    6/13
    Another rough start for Meyer. He only pitched two innings and gave up 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks and only 1 strikeout. He was pulled after 55...

    The strange thing about his current pitch limit is that he didn't have one in late April. He had three consecutive starts in late-April to early-May where his pitch counts were 100, 100 and 92. This...

    Last Monday, Meyer had another so-so start. In this start against the Gwinnett Braves, he pitched only 5 innings. The first 4...

    I like Marshall and Reetz, and in general I think some more position players with upside would be good.

    I agree. BPA in draft. However, I do think it is prudent for them to target bats by other avenues this year. If they end up trading veterans (Willingham, Suzuki, Correia), I hope they target position...

    My quick, back-of-the-envelope calculations makes it seem like the Twins would need to save $1.4 million from their later picks in order to not lose their #1 pick next year.

    It has been a dedicated 2 year effort, but that's what happens when you prioritize pitching for an extended period of time. Here are the young-ish pitchers they have acquired since the 2012 draft (in...

    I'm not sure why this is misleading. I was trying to point out that a player can be very valuable at 3B without having the standard 3B offensive profile - the 25+ HR, .800+ OPS in the...

    I would definitely trade Duensing; I might trade Fien. I would also argue that both are better than the player the Pirates gave up.

    Is this anything less than a cost-cutting move from the Marlins?...

    I looked back at how other top HS pitchers performed at low-A the year after they were drafted.

    Stewart's K rate is currently at 18.1%. Since 2007, there have been only 3 HS pitchers (out of 20)...

    I have seen some scouts give him a future power grade of 55 to go with 50 hit. That would project him hitting .260-.280 with 15-20 HRs and lots of doubles. If he walks enough, his OPS is between...

    There has been some buzz that teams are talking themselves out of Kolek. My guess is that he is the one that would be available.
