Joey Gallo Texas Rangers

"Barrels" is a Statcast thing, so I assume it is measured objectively by cameras (and perhaps radar). Is it identical to or just similar to exit velocity?

What is the average exit velocity on line drives? On pop-ups? On balls that are fouled back? How does the speed of the pitch correlate with exit velocity? Is the exit velocity on fastballs, on average, higher than the exit velocity on sliders?

So many questions.

Joey Gallo 11.4

Kris Davis 10.7

JD Martinez 10.6

Jean Segura Philadelphia Phillies

Jean Segura (SS) SEA - Dec. 2

The Mariners have agreed in principle to send Segura to the Phillies in exchange for J.P. Crawford and Carlos Santana along with additional prospects, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The deal hasn't been finalized just yet, although both sides could work out the details as soon as Monday. Segura slashed .304/.341/.415 with 63 RBI and 20 stolen bases over 144 games with Seattle a season ago, and he figures to benefit from heading to a Philadelphia club that hopes to make a deep playoff run in 2019. The 28-year-old shortstop would have to waive his no-trade clause in order for the trade to go down, although sources close to Segura have noted that "Segura will gladly waive no trade clause... he wants out worse than anyone.", Jon Heyman of reports. Expect the exchange to come to fruition in the coming days.

Addison Russell Chicago Cubs

Are arbitration-eligible players who sign now, before the two sides submit figures, subject to this? Quite a few have signed one-year contracts. I assumed they were all guaranteed but I am the furthest thing from an expert.

Jesse Winker Cincinnati Reds

i traded for Winker in Tout right before he got hurt.

Mike Gianella MikeG

Ron Shandler agrees. He paid $25 in the XFL.

Rougned Odor Texas Rangers

Or just divide the K% number by the K/W. 

van wilhoite LVW

The same can be said for BB% ... right?

Howard Lynch LynchMob

Yeah, K/W seems superfluous with the totals already in the line.

Mike Landau ML-
A.J. Pollock Arizona Diamondbacks

Could someone please explain to Rotoworld that "ask" is a verb, not a noun?

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that A.J.
Pollock this winter is looking for a contract close to the five-year,
$80 million deal Lorenzo Cain got last offseason.

it would be his initial ask isn't surprising, but Pollock -- while he's
"attracting plenty of interest," per Nightengale -- figures to
ultimately fall short of what Cain received.

Zach Eflin Philadelphia Phillies

Requesting a pick/pan on Eflin in The Guide.

Jesse Winker Cincinnati Reds

The power is coming. FB, LD, and HCt rates all up.June slugging .513(.205 ISO) and .615 slugging(.173 ISO) in July when he got injred. 

van wilhoite LVW

Too high! A slap hitter who plays bad defense and doesn't run. Defense may not be a category but it gets you playing time.

In OBP leagues $13 might be a dollar or two too low.

Alex Patton Alex
Eric Hosmer San Diego Padres

I think $21 about right. 

carter carter GypsySoul
Rougned Odor Texas Rangers

In place of K/W?

Alex Patton Alex
Roberto Osuna Houston Astros

Too low, even in 5x5.

Assuming I'm not too late (my deadline was yesterday), he'll be a PATTON PICK in the Guide.

Alex Patton Alex
Rougned Odor Texas Rangers


any way to add BB% to the line above?

Mike Gianella MikeG
Eric Hosmer San Diego Padres

I'm thinking $19 or $20.

Edwin Diaz Seattle Mariners

It's done, says Mike Puma in the Post, and the Mets aren't done.

A sad day for Diaz owners in AL leagues.

Alex Patton Alex
Eric Hosmer San Diego Padres

Too low. I'd go with our bids last year.
