In make the most of a bad situation news, former Dodgers outfielder DJ Peters could leave the country for more money and better playing time.

First, Peters made his MLB debut with LA last season, battling for an average of .192 in 18 games before being designated for an assignment and ultimately traded to Texas Rangers. Where most of the old Dodgers end up, apparently. In 52 games with Texas, the Glendora native reached just 0.198, but connected on 12 homers while leading by 34 points.

After the Rangers added a number of players this winter, including not only Corey Seager and infielder Marcus Semien, but also outfielder Kole Calhoun, Billy McKinney and Zach Reks, it looked like playing time could be harder to find at Globe Life Field for Peters. With that, KBO insider Daniel Kim recently tweeted that former Dodger could end up signing with the Lotte Giants.

At just 25 years old, now is the perfect time for Peters to get out there and find some financial security. Especially with so much going on with MLB locking.

The Arizona Fall League ended Nov. 20 with a Mesa Solar Sox Championship against the Suprise Saguaros.

In this space, we’ll be going over the 2021 Arizona Fall League, highlighting the players who have been the most notable and the disappointments based on their performances from a fantasy baseball perspective.

Many of these prospects won’t make an impact in majors this coming season, but they are some of the best players of the next generation of prospects. Managers in the Dynasty League should make it a priority to familiarize themselves with these players.

Editor’s Note: Stay up to date with our off-season MLB news and fantastic analysis. Read our daily fantastic articles on MLB Outlook, Offseason Moves, Breakout Candidates, and more.

Let’s go!

risers

Below are the players who upgraded their proverbial stock:

Triston Casas, Boston Red Sox, 1B

Triston Casas was a bit of a headache for me, to be honest. He hit .372 with a .495 OBP and a .982 OPS despite a single home run in 95 appearances at home. If you read the reports, people rave about Triston Casas. That said, someone who’s supposed to have 30-40 home runs hitting a 78-stroke home run certainly raises eyebrows. He bills himself as a corner batsman and is set to make his Major League debut in 2022 for the Boston Red Sox.

Nelson Velazquez, Chicago Cubs, OF

2021 Arizona Fall League MVP Nelson Velazquez had a big breakthrough this fall. He hit 0.385, with an OBP of 0.480, an OPS of 1.191 and nine league-leading home runs. His performance likely played a role in his addition to the 40-man roster last week, ensuring he won’t be selected by another team in the Rule 5 Draft. According to the MLB Prospect Rankings, he is the # 29 hope in the Cubs system.

In 2021, Velazquez starred in both High-A and Double-A. At High-A, he hit 12 home runs, stole 12 goals in 69 games while defeating .261 with an OBP of .321 and strikeout rate of 33.7%. At Double-A, he hit eight homers, stole five goals while hitting .290 with a .358 OBP and a 25.5% strikeout rate in just 34 games.

I don’t know what his fantastic potential is, but it’s definitely a name I’ll be watching this spring and next season in the minor leagues.

Owen White, Texas Rangers, RHP

Owen White was the 2021 Arizona Fall League Pitcher of the Year. He started six games, pitched 28.1 innings, was 5-0 with a 1.91 ERA, a WHIP of 1.16 and 29 strikeouts. In 2021, White started eight games and pitched 33.1 innings in Low-A. He was 3-1 with an ERA of 3.24, a WHIP of 1.11 and a K-BB% of 31.1%. According to the MLB Prospects page, White is the # 27 prospect in the Rangers system with an ETA date of 2023. Similar to Velazquez, I’ll be keeping an eye on White but don’t know what his fantastic relevance will be.

Gabriel Moreno, Blue Jays of Toronto, C

Gabriel Moreno has also caused quite a stir recently. He had 11 doubles at the top of the Arizona Fall League in 98 home plate appearances. It hit 0.329 with an OBP of 0.410 and an OPS of 0.904. Haven’t seen him play yet, but people say he’s playing solid defense. Sometimes young receivers struggle at home plate as they get used to defense and pitching handling at the Major League level.

He is set to make his debut in 2022 and some believe he is the future receiver for the Blue Jays. In the fantasy world, the receiver is not a very relevant position beyond the very best players. I don’t know if Moreno is someone who can hit 40 home runs or steal double-digit bases. I kick position a lot, so if he’s someone who can play the majority of the time behind the plate and not destroy my batting average, I’m in it.

Nick Gonzales, Pittsburgh Pirates, 2B

Nick Gonzales hit 0.380 with an OBP of 0.483, 1.032 OPS, two homers and four interceptions in 84 home plate appearances. He had 18 home runs and seven interceptions in the High-A ball last year in 369 home plate appearances. At 22, can he quickly move from High-A to Major League?

Bryson Stott, Philadelphia Phillies, SS

Bryson Stott is another player who has had a great fall. He reached .318 with an OBP of .445, .934 OPS, two homers, five interceptions and 31 RBI in 26 games. One beat writer believed Stott’s performance would keep the Phillies out of the shortstop free agent market.

In 2021, Stott played 80 Double-A games before being promoted to Triple-A for 10 games. In those 80 Double-A games, Stott hit 0.301, an OBP of 0.368, with 10 homers and six interceptions. He had a strikeout rate of 22.2%, a walk rate of 10% and an ISO of 0.179. Steamer screened him for 288 home plate appearances with eight homers, four interceptions and an average of .257 in 2022. In a full season, he’s on track for 16 homers and eight interceptions. He’s someone I would line up late in a Draft Champions format, or a possible waiver thread added in the middle of the infield in a 15-team league – if he gets regular playing time.

Disappointments

Spencer Torkelson, Detroit Tigers, 1B / 3B

Spencer Torkelson sprained his ankle after playing just seven games and was sent home earlier. In the seven games he played, he reached 0.450. He is Detroit’s top prospect (No.4 overall) according to MLB.com’s Prospect Rankings and is set to make his first-base debut sometime in 2022. Steamer predicted Torkelson will hit 0.259 with an OBP of 0.341, 29 home runs, five interceptions. in 525 plate appearances. Despite the limited drop, he is expected to be a fantastic and useful contributor in 2022.

Marco Luciano, San Francisco Giants, SS

Marco Luciano had a disappointing fall league in Arizona. He touched .253 with an OBP of .356, .730 OPS and three homers in 86 home plate appearances. Strikeouts, one of his biggest concerns in his minor league stats, were also a concern here. He was No. 7 in the Arizona Fall League with 28 strikeouts. It’s disappointing because if you search for him on YouTube you’ll find some towering home runs, and he’s an electric player when he’s on. The downside is also significant at this point in his playing career. The belief is that overall prospect No.5 will make his Major League debut in 2023.

CJ Abrams, San Diego Padres, 2B / SS

I was interested to see what CJ Abrams would do in the Arizona Fall League after fracturing his left shin and spraining the MCL earlier this season. Unfortunately, he injured his shoulder while slipping into a base during the fall training league. We’ll get our next look at prospect # 6 in 2022 in Spring Training.

Nolan Gorman, Saint Louis Cardinals, 2B

Nolan Gorman has only appeared in six games in the Arizona Fall League with a hamstring injury. In those six games, he hit .375 with an OBP of .565 and hit a home run. He’s gone from third to second since the Cardinals now have Nolan Arenado for the foreseeable future. I wonder if he will end up being a Max Muncy type player.

Gorman stole seven goals in the minor leagues, but that was in 119 games. A lack of elite speed at an intermediate position on the pitch can be difficult for a fantastic line-up composition. So far the transition to second base has been positive, however, if the National League ever adds a designated hitter, one has to wonder if guys like Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado will have some time at DH allowing Gorman to occasionally playing a corner infield position.

MacKenzie Gore, San Diego Padres, LHP

MacKenzie Gore had a disappointing fall league in Arizona. He pitched just 11.1 innings, allowed nine runs (earned eight), struck out eight batters and walked six. In 2020, he was the highest ranked pitcher prospect. He’s been added to the Padres’ 40-man roster, and we’ll see what 2022 brings to MacKenzie Gore.

Bobby Miller, Los Angeles Dodgers, RHP

Bobby Miller pitched 10 innings, struck out 10, walked seven, allowing 11 earned runs. He’s a well-known prospect who is set to make his debut in 2022. I’ve had issues with the Dodgers pitching roster outside of Walker Buehler and Clayton Kershaw (when he’s in good health). You never know how they’re going to be used and often young pitchers like this end up being better in real life than the fantastic options, especially early in their careers.

Final thoughts

Prospects No.4 (Spencer Torkelson) and No.6 (CJ Abrams) didn’t play much to pull something insightful out of the fall. Marco Luciano, No. 5 prospect, suffered a disappointing fall. Triston Casas, Gabriel Moreno, Nick Gonzales, Nelson Velazquez and Owen White have won one of the Arizona Fall League’s biggest buzzes heading into spring.

Outside of Torkelson, it’s unclear when most of these top performing players will make their major league debuts, as most could spend the majority (if not all) of the season in the minor leagues in 2022.

Shohei Ohtani was a game-changer in his historic season this year with the LA Angels.

During what was arguably the best season in baseball history, ShoTime won the AL MVP with ease and etched his name into the history books seemingly every night. He was dominant as a pitcher, starting 23 games (9-2 record) while posting a 3.18 ERA. He was dominant as a baserunner, stretching eight doubles in triples (tied for Major League lead) and stealing 26 bases while being named the AL’s fastest baserunner by his peers.

However, that was only the tip of the iceberg when it came to who Ohtani was. He was better at punching than anything. He was even awarded for how dominant he was on the plate on Sunday, as he won the Edgar Martinez Outstanding Designated Hitter award.

Edgar Martinez was a game-changer. That’s why even rival AL West fans like Angel fans even have respect for him. Shohei changed the game as well, and that’s why he so deserves this award.

A collection of baseball cards, approximately 30,000 of them, will be up for grabs at a Swampscott Little League fundraiser. The goal is to raise $ 10,000 through small donations of $ 10, $ 20 and $ 30.

The fundraising was the brainchild of Swampscott resident Bruce Golomb, who is a retired teacher and former Little League coach. Vincent and Joe Fazzolari donated space in their hair salon, Rosa Brothers at 202 Humphrey Street, for Golomb to set up displays and organize fundraising on days when the store is closed.

Retired teacher and former Swampscott Little League coach Bruce Golomb holds just a few of the many sheets of baseball cards he plans to donate to raise money for Little League.

30,000 cards… how did it go? It all started when Golomb was 10 and, of course, a baseball fan.

“I was a little kid – and I grew up in Malden – and you could go to the drugstore and buy baseball cards, packs of cards, for a dime, a dime, whatever,” Golomb said.

He started teaching at Malden in 1973 – he worked at Belmont and Beebe schools – and three years later opened a confectionery there, while continuing to teach. The store was originally called The Sweet Shop, then became Pudge’s Slush, and it eventually opened a store in downtown Rockport.

Golomb said that in the late 1970s and early 1980s when he went to buy wholesale candy, vendors also had baseball cards. He decided to buy them too and include a small section for them in his shop.

Bruce Golomb has about 30,000 baseball cards in his collection.  Here are a few.

Over time, he started to do sets. A standard pack contains 15 cards, but a full set for one year would be 700 cards. People would come in and say they needed certain cards to complete a set.

“The cards themselves, just because they’re old,” he said, “they’re relatively more valuable than what you could buy today.”

As lockout threatens Major League Baseball, current collective agreement set to expire at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, December 1st, the flurry of activity over Thanksgiving weekend was a combination of panic and urgency. The New York Mets’ $ 124.5 million spending madness on three ballers set a very different tone from the start of the week when free agent pitcher Steven Matz changed his mind at the last minute when it came to a return to Flushing. He decided to sign a four-year, $ 44 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. Mets owner Steve Cohen was furious at the way Matz’s agent Rob Martin had handled the case. However, Cohen is still a big winner as Starling Marte will patrol the central Mets field on a four-year, $ 78 million contract.

The Seattle Mariners weren’t tired of the tryptophan and acquired All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Even the Tampa Bay Rays stepped into the action by signing two-time AHL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber to a one-year, $ 8 million contract according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman. Also, let’s not forget that the Rays have finalized shortstop Wander Franco’s 11-year, $ 182 million contract extension. The Miami Marlins have officially entered the free agent frenzy according to Craig Mish and Jeff Passan as they agree to a four-year, $ 53 million contract with outfielder Avisail Garcia.

Free agent shortstops continue to grab the headlines. Robert Murray and Jeff Passan were the first to report that the Texas Rangers signed a seven-year, $ 175 million contract with Marcus Semien. After settling for a one-year, $ 18 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays last season, Semien is finally securing a long-term contract thanks to an assist from his new agent, Scott Boras. Rumors are circulating around Javier Baez and possible contract negotiations with the Detroit Tigers. Even after an expensive weekend, there is still hope that Baez will bring any offer he receives to the Mets to see if it is equal or surpassed in length and value.

The Minnesota Twins have made it clear what they think about center fielder Byron Buxton. According to Ken Rosenthal, Jon Paul Morosi and Mark Feinsand, the Twins have agreed to a seven-year, $ 100 million contract for Buxton, which includes a $ 1 million signing bonus as well as performance bonuses associated with earning the MVP award and home plate appearances. . Buxton’s long injury history is well known as it is a bold and risky move for the Twins.

There is no shortage of prominent starting free agent launchers in the market at different points in their careers. Robbie Ray and Kevin Gausman will likely order nine-figure contracts. Ray has just completed a one-year, $ 8 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, as well as a bonus of $ 150,000 for winning the Cy Young Award of the American League according to Cot’s Baseball Contracts. He is the last starting pitcher to reject a qualifying offer and remains a free agent. Under the expiring collective agreement, the Blue Jays will receive compensation in the form of a draft pick after Competitive Balance Round B in next year’s draft if Ray signs with another ball club.

Half a dozen baseball clubs are rumored to be actively pursuing Gausman as he is on the verge of making a final decision. Last offseason, he accepted a one-year, $ 18.9 million qualifying offer from the San Francisco Giants. Gausman bet on himself and has had a career season. In 33 starts, he struck out 227 batters in 192 innings while forming his first all-star team.

Max Scherzer stands out among the free agent starting pitchers. The age-defying right-hander still exudes dominance with a streak of nastiness that separates him from nearly every pitching player in the game. During his season at the age of 36, Scherzer made 30 starts for the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers while striking out 236 batters in 179.1 innings. He led Major League Baseball with a tiny 0.864 walks and hits per inning pitched (WHIP) while posting a 2.46 earned-run average (ERA) according to Baseball-Reference. Three-time winner of the Cy Young Award, Scherzer became the 19e member of the illustrious 3,000 strikeout club last September.

Scherzer just completed a seven-year, $ 210 million contract, which is considered one of the best independent agent contract signings in recent memory. It was also one of the most complex in terms of structure. In Scherzer’s 30- to 36-year-old seasons, he started 200 regular season baseball games while striking out 1,699 batters in 1,297.1 innings. In addition to winning a world championship with the Nationals in 2019, Scherzer has won two National League Cy Young Awards and finished in the top five in votes in six of the past seven seasons.

Scherzer’s free agency could eventually end before the expiration of the current collective agreement. Four baseball clubs are rumored to be legitimate contenders for his services: Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets and San Francisco Giants. The Mets will likely have a hard time securing Scherzer’s services as there is a rumor that he prefers to play for a West Coast baseball club. There are also three other factors that Scherzer is considering as well: a multi-year contract, playing for a championship-caliber ball club, and an average annual value of $ 35 million.

There have only been 10 pitchers to win three Cy Young Awards. Scherzer not only accomplished this feat, but he is also one of six pitchers to win the prestigious award in both leagues. It’s also worth noting that seven pitchers won a Cy Young Award after their 36-year season. Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens have both accomplished this remarkable feat on two separate occasions. Clemens is the oldest Cy Young Award winner during his season at 41 with the Houston Astros in 2004.

The aggressiveness of the baseball clubs over Thanksgiving weekend was an adrenaline rush for Major League Baseball and its fans. Whether it’s a panic or an emergency, expect more high-profile deals to be made before a potential foreclosure temporarily ends the “Hot Stove” season. Don’t be surprised if starting pitchers Kevin Gausman and Max Scherzer wrap up their brief period of free will in hours instead of days.

In the span of 10 days at the start of January 2016, the Chinese Super League (CSL) transfer record was broken three times. First, Jiangsu Suning paid Chelsea £ 24million to sign Ramires. Then, Guangzhou Evergrande paid Atletico Madrid £ 25million for Jackson Martinez. Not wanting to be outdone, Jiangsu Suning went even higher, watching Liverpool to lure Brazilian winger Alex Teixeira from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth £ 38.5million.

And that was just the transfer fee. Salaries were at another level. Ramires has seen his salary double to over £ 10million a year. Likewise Teixeira, who was not even a full-fledged international.

“(Chinese clubs) seem to have the financial power to attract all European players,” Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger warned. “There is a very strong political will in China to become a great player and we (the Premier League) have to be concerned.”

And so on. In that year’s summer window, Hebei China Fortune bought Ezequiel Lavezzi from Paris Saint-Germain, before Shandong Luneng signed Papiss Cisse from Newcastle United and Graziano Pelle from Southampton. Shanghai SIPG broke the transfer record by signing Brazilian striker Hulk from Zenit St Petersburg for £ 45million, giving him a £ 320,000-a-week contract.

LaVar Ball tears Hornets apart for keeping LiAngelo in G League: “I let them down a superstar” https://nyrenegades.com/lavar-ball-tears-hornets-apart-for-keeping-liangelo-in-g-league-i-let-them-down-a-superstar/ Fri, 26 Nov 2021 21:07:50 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/lavar-ball-tears-hornets-apart-for-keeping-liangelo-in-g-league-i-let-them-down-a-superstar/ The 2021-22 season can only be described as a flawless success for the Ball family in the world of professional basketball.

The 2021-22 season can only be described as a flawless success for the Ball family in the world of professional basketball. LaMelo Ball is on course to become a superstar in a stellar second season for the Charlotte Hornets, and Lonzo Ball has apparently found his place with the Chicago Bulls as they rise to rival status. The last Ball brother to wait for his shot at NBA glory is LiAngelo, but if his dad is successful, he won’t wait any longer.

Middle brother Ball currently plays for the Greensboro Swarm, Charlotte’s G League affiliate, but LaVar Ball lashed out at the NBA club in an interview with TMZ Sports for keeping his son away from the big leagues. . “They don’t understand what they have,” Ball said. “They have to let my boy go ahead and play.”

“I let them down with a G League superstar and they don’t know what to do with him,” he continued. Of course, there is little evidence to suggest this is true. LiAngelo Ball has averaged just 9.3 points per game for Greensboro, and while there have been highs like his 22-point outing against Birmingham Squadron, his last game against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers the saw aimlessly. While Ball’s G League career is still young, his failure to leave a consistent mark on it so far doesn’t exactly scream the future NBA star.

But the situation is delicate for the Hornets. No matter what they think of LiAngelo, LaMelo is the face of their franchise and keeping him happy is essential. Many teams have signed the disappointing brothers of their most accomplished players in large part to appease these stars, with Thanasis Antetokounmpo in Milwaukee being the prime example right now, but LaVar’s presence as the media instigator makes matters much more. complicated for the Hornets. As long as LaMelo continues to play like a superstar, LaVar will have the advantage of continuing to push LiAngelo onto the franchise as part of a global deal.

White Sox sign outfielder Luis Alexander Basabe and two more in minor leagues https://nyrenegades.com/white-sox-sign-outfielder-luis-alexander-basabe-and-two-more-in-minor-leagues/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 16:31:21 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/white-sox-sign-outfielder-luis-alexander-basabe-and-two-more-in-minor-leagues/ The White Sox recently signed a trio of players, one of which is a guy many of you will likely recognize.

The White Sox recently signed a trio of players, one of which is a guy many of you will likely recognize.

According to America’s Baseball Chris Hilburn-Trenkle, the club signed RHP Luke Shilling, second baseman Jagger Suconi and outfielder Luis Alexander Basabe to minor league deals.

Of the three, Basabe is the name that catches the eye here. The now 25-year-old was originally part of Chris Sale’s return to the business with third baseman Yoan Moncada and right-handed pitchers Michael Kopech and Victor Diaz. After spending four years with the organization as a scheming prospect, Basabe was nominated for an assignment and moved to the San Francisco Giants for money considerations in August 2020.

The outfielder then made his Major League debut and nine appearances for the Giants that season before being excluded from the 40-man roster in February after sustaining a wrist injury. Basabe ultimately appeared in just 22 games for affiliate Double-A from San Francisco in 2021 where he slashed 0.206 / .349 / .338 (14-for-68), with three doubles, two homers, nine RBIs. , 5 stolen bases, 15 walks and 26 strikeouts. He also played 11 games in the Arizona League before being elected in free agency on November 7.

Although Basabe dominated at Double-A Birmingham in his first stint, the Sox will give him one last shot to see if he can prove his worth in 2022. His speed and defense are his bread and butter, so it could work well. in his favor if he manages to place his bat at an average level.

As for Luke Shilling, the 24-year-old had some tough times early in his career. Dating back to 2018, injury after injury after injury left him unable to compete for most of his time in the organization. Although he finally got a taste of minor league baseball last season, the right-handed pitcher is back on the injured list and will stay there for the 2022 season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Rusconi, the third player signed, spent time at four levels in the organization last season – Arizona League, Low-A Kannapolis, High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham. In those 43 games, he hit 0.265 / 0.337 / 0.368 (41 for 155) with nine doubles, two triples, a homer, 17 RBIs and 0.705 OPS. Like Shilling, the 25-year-old will be looking to avoid the injury virus that plagues him often and will likely start next season in the middle with the Birmingham Barons.
