Outrighted last week to AAA. Started in AAA with a 1/13.

Maybe they should convert him to a reliever. He's pitched better than a lot of the Brewers bullpen.

Between him and Shaw, maybe they should fire their new hitting coach.

Still very solid dWAR numbers ... leading to positive WAR the last 3 seasons (he was -0.1 so far this year).  Costs only a bit more than the major league minimum.  Can reasonably handle 2nd, SS, 3rd, and OF.  Sort of surprised that he cleared waivers ... now a San Antonio Mission.

.399 OPS from June 2 to last week ... with a .219 BABIP.  Interestingly, a 42% hard hit ball rate and only a 12% soft contact rate during that time, and a 33%/52%/15% pull/center/opposite distribution ... which suggests that there was some serious bad luck in play over that time.

Stats show he's still an above average defender.  Won't clear waivers, with the team who picks him up only owing $1.25 mil over the rest of the season.

Without a doubt, providing a nice little return for whoever grabbed him in the end game.  Will likely never repeat 2016 ... but repeating 2017 is just fine for what was likely a $2 or $3 investment.

Good one Fred. Peter and I had him on our sleeper list in the XFL draft on Monday but we waited too long.

I have been trolling for sleepers in the NL and came across this March 5 blog from Kyle Lobner in the Shepherd Express:


"Hernan Perez’s bat is showing some of its trademark pop early in Cactus League play. In his first five games he collected four extra base hits, including three home runs. It was a nice first step as he works to bounce back from a disappointing 2018 season, where he posted his lowest batting average (.253) and on-base plus slugging (.676) as a Brewer....  It turns out that Perez’s struggles might have had a medical explanation: Perez had offseason surgery to remove a bone chip in his left wrist, an ailment he claims he played through for much of the season."

Obs, I'm a fan. I say buy no matter what, everyone is down on him, but playing time is an issue that isn't going away. And his lack of walks and an obvious position could cut into it. But that's a reason to bet on him, when everyone else is playing it safe. Could be a sleeper alert, I guess.

Here's the trick. He's not a sure thing, but given his price he could be a big thing. Buy him cheap.

Between the big price and the value of the projection?

Uncertainty about playing time tempers the big price, I imagine.

And, even if Hernan gets those 422 AB, it is a bold projection. I love bold projections myself, but I've learned many times not to match them with equally bold bets. If you really want a player, put down a bid limit that you think is just enough to get him. If you're wrong, let him go. The bid limit marks the point that the risk starts to exceed the reward.

Fantasy Baseball Guide has $8 for big price. Any idea why such a difference in value?

Three picks, no pans in the Guide.

Speaking for one of the pickers, I was trying to pick someone no one else would even think about.
