Maybe Franmil is the most surprising of the HR hitters on the PCL's Power Hungry Redux roster ... but personally I'm more surprised by Dansby's 13!  He was kept in PCL at $11 ... a good keep.

$7 in LABR ...

Before you get too excited check the injury report.  He had surgery on his wrist recently and was scratched yesterday due to wrist pain.

Alright, you guys have convinced me.

Swanson is the shortstop. He's not much for contact, but he walks enough to not be dismal, and he's a good fielder. I'm sure he'll lose some AB to Camargo, but not that many. Well worth a $5 keep.

Camargo is 25 too, and Donaldson was signed to play third.  Not sure either gets the ABs to match 2018 $.

I think if you throw him back at $5 you'll be sorry ... he earned $13 last year ... he's only 25 ... i'll bid $6 in a heartbeat ...

Have Dansby at $5 but I think he may go for less if I throw him back. There's not much to recommend him, 10 HR and 10 SB plays much better for a buck or two.

From Fangraphs:

Swanson has yet to show the offensive skills that made him the first overall pick in 2015. With the Braves making moves to contend in 2019, it’s possible that he sees less than full-time action if he continues to struggle at the dish.

I think Howard's inclusion of a Johnny Manziel quote in this forum to be awesome! Manziel managed to get himself banned from the CFL. the CFL!!! Luckily for him he still has the AAF (does anybody actually watch that? Rotoworld has AAF Fantasy news, who the hell is that hard up?), Arena football and the soon to be resurrected XFL to get banned from.

Dansby Swanson (SS) ATL - Jan. 19

Swanson hit off a tee for the first time Wednesday since undergoing offseason wrist surgery, although he's expected to take it slow at the beginning of spring training, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: He had surgery to eradicate a loose body in his left wrist at the beginning of November. While Swanson is expected to be ready to go for Opening Day, the Braves will take it easy with their starting shortstop this spring to prevent further issue.

Especially after what he did in his first 129 AB ... baseball is hard.

(Which, by the way, is Johnny Manziel's argument that Kyler Murray should keep playing baseball! ... which makes some sense to me)
