What must Sano think watching Astudillo and Arraez hit?

Orlando Arcia Atlanta Braves

Traded to the Braves.  Seems like the Reds should have been all over this.

Andrew Chafin Chicago Cubs

New hierarchy from the Monkey:

Chicago Cubs
– Alec Mills picked up his first save of the season, spelling Craig
Kimbrel, who got the night off. Andrew Chafin was dynamite in the set-up
role, striking out all four batters he faced, and Brandon Workman will
likely continue to get late-inning work, so we’ll monitor where Mills
fits in going forward.

Hierarchy remains: Kimbrel | Chafin | Workman.

Randy Dobnak Minnesota Twins

Went for $2 on Saturday. Not to me.

April 6, 2021

Minnesota Twins
– Randy Dobnak picked up a 3-inning save in Monday’s blowout victory
over the Tigers. He doesn’t factor into the Twins usual late-inning

Hierarchy remains: *Colome | Rogers | Robles.
* = closer-by-committee

Adley Rutschman Baltimore Orioles

The first four picks in my league's supplemental draft were - Rutschman, Torkelson, Rodriguez, and Witt.  I took Torkelson with the #2 pick.  I see him as a high average, high power 1B, something that I usually don't have on my roster.  I see Rutschman as the most valuable baseball player, but likely not in Rotisserie b/c he will likely develop slower at the plate b/c of catcher defense being a priority.  I think Witt has the highest upside in our game because of the possibility to steal even though I don't think he'll be more than a 15-20 SB player. Rodriguez is likely the first to arrive.  I think my league's order is correct.

A readers asks:

In a nutshell, how would you rank these 4 prospects for fantasy upside.


Julio Rodriguez


Witt Jr.

I gave two different answers -- this-year upside and dynasty upside. I'm curious what others say.

Kyle Keller Pittsburgh Pirates

Pittsburgh Pirates optioned RHP Kyle Keller to Pirates Alternate Training Site.

This news freaked me out for a minute ... (ie. this is NOT Mitch :-))

Trevor Rogers Miami Marlins

Trevor Rogers, LHP, Marlins — After leading the Grapefruit League with 29 strikeouts, Rogers made his season debut on Monday. The lefthander, who was impressive in 2020, whiffed six and walked four over four innings. His four-seam fastball topped at 98 mph, and he got swinging strikes on 15 of his 77 (19.4%) pitches.

Akil Baddoo Detroit Tigers
22-year-old outfielder who has never played above Single-A.

Akil Baddoo, OF, Tigers — The Tigers’ Rule 5 pick did it again on Monday, socking his second career home run. This time, Baddoo victimized his former team by socking an opposite-field blast into the bullpen off of Randy Dobnak. It’s very early, but Detroit looks like it has something in the 22-year-old outfielder.

One more update to go (Thursday, probably early afternoon). It occurs to me to ask... how many people still haven't drafted yet?

Mike Mayers Los Angeles Angels

I had a late game "nominate other teams handcuffs" strategy, and it worked a couple of times.  Threw Mayers out at 1, crickets.  At that point I realized the Iglesias owner was the one owner to have already completed his team.  I could have done worse
