Renato Nunez Oakland Athletics

I picked him up this weekend.  Oakland is going with youth and he's leading the PCL in homers.  252/315/546 with 20 HR in 262 ABs with 17 doubles.

Alex -- maybe throwing in the 9th.  There would have to be a save situation.

We can't speculate on minor leaguers in LABR once the season starts so it will be interesting to see where the bidding lands on Wade.

Mike Minor Kansas City Royals

I have him in two leagues, because I think he can be an effective SP again. I owned him back in his days in the NL with Atlanta so that's why I still have faith.

He's been great a reliever this year in KC, and rumors are Minor is being shopped aggressively 

Should I hope he stays in the relief role? Seems like short relievers are out-earning most SP's these days.

And you guys know I love relievers.

My players are dropping like flies.  Chris Davis, JJ Hardy, Keuchel, Andriese, and now Castro.  I'm going to have to bid heavy on Wade.  Wish I had taken him last week as he was featured on Sickels's website last week by another author.

Willson Contreras Chicago Cubs

A nail-biter to top all nail-biters in the nation's capital. I love the announcer's comment when Contreras opens it with a homer.

Capitol? I never can keep that straight.

Adrian Beltre Texas Rangers

Started the wild game in Cleveland last night with a three-run bomb off Carrasco in the first. The Rangers out-homered the Indians 4-0, but somehow were outscored 15-9.

Elvis Andrus Texas Rangers

Two homers last night. He keeps this up he's going to hit as many homers in one season as he had in his career at the start of the season.

Colin Moran Houston Astros

Is anyone tracking homers in the minors? Same thing happening at all levels?

Alex Patton Alex

Colin Moran, 3b, Astros. Manifestation of power has been an elusive piece of Moran’s development, but it sure seems to be happening now. Moran blasted his 17th homer Monday and fourth in 10 games as Triple-A Fresno beat Albuquerque (Rockies) 7-6. Moran’s previous high was 10, but Astros officials have long maintained their belief that the 6-foot-4 Moran, the sixth overall pick in 2013, had plus raw power and would eventually show it in games. Moran is striking out far less than in previous seasons, showing he’s not selling out for power, and his average on balls in play is right in line with his average (.287 BABIP, .286 average).

Re Doug Fister thread, get ready to spend $18, Peter.

I'm sure the Peppers would agree they too freely spent their loot.

And today they have a free homer to show for it.

Getting the call from the Yankees to replace an injured Castro.

Currently hitting .313 with five homers and 24 stolen bases this season in AAA.

Edubray Ramos Philadelphia Phillies

Basically yeah it was. Ramos lasted 12 batters in the span of his 3 losses and Frazier lasted 20  batters and the Yankees had multiple innings to come back in each of his 3 losses.

TIme versus stress equals... Was it really faster? Def less memorable, but we had high hopes for him. But a reminder that minor league relievers are dubious until they prove otherwise. Pitching short stints is a much different job.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Doug Fister Boston Red Sox

That's exactly right Alex. With all my money, I do not want to lose position. And I have no particular faith in Fister. But he's throwing harder than he was and the guy knows how to pitch. Or eat innings. Or did. Good pickup, one I wasn't ready to risk my second place ERA and WHIP on too much.

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Tyler Austin New York Yankees

If you have a hole free loot is free loot. He's a balancing act, but what the hell?

Peter Kreutzer Rotoman
Carter Capps San Diego Padres

I read somewhere recently that his minor league rehab was slowed because he had to change his delivery, which made him much less effective. Makes sense, but these recent stories don't reflect that. Does anyone know if there was a ruling that ruled his delivery too extreme?
