William Contreras Atlanta Braves

This guy is really exceeding expectations.  Looking more and more like his brother.  I always like it when a catcher is being played at 1b, OF, or DH by his team.  Tells me they know the guy can rake.

Seven earned runs in 1/3 IP last night and not even a mention of it on Rotoworld.  What the bleep happened??

Thomas Szapucki New York Mets

Allowed 6 ER on 7 Hits in his MLB debut on June 30th of last year......he looked like a Cy Young winner in that game compared to his 1st MLB start today....9 ER on 7 Hits in 1 1/3 innings.

Robbie Grossman Detroit Tigers

Just for kicks:  those 9---adding in Austin Meadows for Riley Greene----have posted a 4x4 line of .213-18-87-4, which is not good. 

Nor have Eric Haase or Daz Cameron or Derek Hill helped.  I guess Willi Castro has, by hitting .275, but yeesh.

Max Fried Atlanta Braves
Another quality start Tuesday
May 25, 2022
Fried didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Phillies, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out five.
ANALYSIS
The lefty tossed 58 of 99 pitches for strikes before exiting with a 4-2 lead, but Fried was denied his fifth win of the year when Kenley Jansen blew the save in the top of the ninth. The quality start was Fried's second in a row and sixth in nine trips to the mound, and he'll carry a 3.27 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 52:8 K:BB through 55 innings into his next outing.

Robbie Grossman Detroit Tigers

I agreed with ML back in March. Hasn't worked out that way.

Takes seat Wednesday
May 25, 2022
Grossman isn't starting Wednesday against the Twins.
ANALYSIS
Grossman will get a breather after he went just 1-for-20 with a double, a run, a stolen base, a walk and six strikeouts over the last five games. Willi Castro, Derek Hill and Daz Cameron will start in the outfield from left to right.

Rotowire:

Goes yard twice against Cards
May 25, 2022
Jansen went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
The backstop launched a three-run shot off Jordan Hicks in the fourth inning and a solo blast off Drew VerHagen in the seventh. Jansen has only played in 11 games this season due to an oblique strain, but he's made the most of his chances by hitting .310 (9-for-29) with five homers, six runs and eight RBI.

Tommy La Stella San Francisco Giants

05.25: Tommy La Stella went 2-for-6 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mets. (La Stella launched a three-run homer off Chris Bassitt with two outs in the fourth inning, but this one would ultimately be decided late, with
the two teams combining for 15 runs (10 by the losing Mets) over the
final three innings.)

His batting average, that's what.

With two hits yesterday, he's batting .365.

Roger Maris topped Babe Ruth’s single-season record, hitting 61 homers in 1961. His total has been surpassed several times since, but by players who have been connected to performance-enhancing drugs.

Calvin Mitchell Pittsburgh Pirates

Rotowire:

En route to big leagues
May 24, 2022
The Pirates plan to select Mitchell's contract from Triple-A Indianapolis prior to Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old corner outfielder isn't one of the Pirates' top prospects, but he could get an everyday role with the big club nonetheless after he produced an impressive .306/.362/.500 slash line with five home runs and six stolen bases across 138 plate appearances. The Pirates may view Mitchell as an upgrade over right fielder Jack Suwinski, who could be demoted in a corresponding move after posting a meager .609 OPS in 82 plate appearances since receiving a call-up from Double-A Altoona in late April.

Me too, we have a 6 man minor league roster, he was on mine since early on.

Cal Raleigh Seattle Mariners

4 HR out of 6 hits so far in 50 AB. 4 Runs scored. His BAvg is .120.  His ISO is .240.

Triston McKenzie Cleveland Guardians

I think he is morphing from being a thrower into a pitcher. The improvement in the walk rate leaves me very happy and I agree that the Guardians will be very careful with his workload. I think that 135-to-150 innings is in the cards for this year and that's what I'm planning around. My biggest concern is the build. I'd love to see him put on 20 pounds.

Stuart Fairchild San Francisco Giants

Up with the Giants.  We have a week to decide whether to FAAB him.  Probably not.
