The Dodgers have agreed to a minor league contract with the right-hander Sam Gaviglioreports MLBTR’s Steve Adams (on Twitter). The Oregon State product had been a minor league free agent after completing the 2021 campaign as a member of the Korea Baseball Organization’s SSG Landers.

Gaviglio did not appear in the majors last year, his first since 2016 without MLB action. Between 2017 and 2020 he appeared as a member of the Mariners, Royals and Blue Jays. Working in swing capacity, Gaviglio pitched 296 cumulative 2/3 innings in 98 outings (including 37 starts). He didn’t miss many bats, striking out just 19.1 percent of batters faced on a 9.1 percent swing hitting percentage.

To his credit, the former fifth-rounder demonstrated strong control (7.2% walk rate) and induced a decent number of worm burners (48% grounder rate). He boasts a career 4.88 ERA / 4.37 SIERA, sometimes struggling to keep the ball in the court despite his good numbers on the ground. Gaviglio hasn’t had the same home run problems in Triple-A, however, where he has a 4.19 ERA over games spanning five seasons.

Gaviglio started the season in the Rangers organization last year, having signed a pact with the minors in January. He only made five starts with Triple-A Round Rock before securing his release to pursue the aforementioned opportunity in South Korea. Gaviglio started his 15 outings with the Landers, working at a 5.86 ERA with a 19.9 percent strikeout rate and 8.5 percent walk percentage.

Hyun Jin Ryu will train in the spring despite the lockdown https://nyrenegades.com/hyun-jin-ryu-will-train-in-the-spring-despite-the-lockdown/ Thu, 27 Jan 2022 23:00:00 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/hyun-jin-ryu-will-train-in-the-spring-despite-the-lockdown/ There are signs that the MLB lockdown is going to end in the fairly near future.

There are signs that the MLB lockdown is going to end in the fairly near future. The two parties are talking to each other and progress is being made. However, there is no guarantee that spring training will start on time, which could affect players early in the season. It’s something the Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu found a way around.

Whether or not spring training starts on time for the major league players, Ryu won’t have to worry. He is expected to travel to South Korea and train with the Hanwha Eagles, his former KBO team.

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu still practices in the spring

If spring training is pushed back, even if it’s only a week or two away, Ryu could have an early season advantage. While other players would still be working on the issues, he would be at his usual pace to start the season, which would give him even more of an edge.

The Blue Jays must hope that makes a difference for Ryu in 2022. After a great first season in Toronto, he struggled last year, posting a 4.37 ERA and 1.225 WHiP in 169 innings, striking out only 143 batters with 43 walks. . His 7.6 K/9 rate was his lowest mark since his rookie campaign in 2013 when he posted his highest ERA of any full major league season.

It’s possible his performance in 2021 was an aberration. After all, many players struggled with the whole season after the pandemic cut short the 2020 campaign. Ryu was simply one of them.

But the Blue Jays need it to be just one year. Their playoff aspirations will hinge on Ryu’s ability to get back into shape, providing them with another rotational upper arm to partner with. Jose Berrios. This is especially the case now that Robbie Ray is gone, creating a big void in the rotation. This early start to spring training might be just what Ryu needs.

Hyun Jin Ryu is going through full spring training one way or another. The Toronto Blue Jays pitcher will join his former KBO team to prepare.

Jack Dominico, a North Bay native who owned the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball club, died this week at the age of 82.

Dominico is a member of the North Bay Sports Hall of Fame, among many other honors he has received over several decades. He died on Tuesday.

The Leafs, which are part of the Intercounty Baseball League, were owned by Jack and his wife Lynne for the first 40 years of their existence, the IBL said in a post after Dominico’s death. The 2021 season was his 53rd as a team owner.

“Passion, longevity and competitiveness are just some of the attributes that have made Jack Dominico,” the post reads.

“Jack was passionate about supporting youth baseball and the community surrounding Christie Pits. He hosted many weekend baseball clinics for those involved with the Toronto Playgrounds House League baseball program, where young players can learn skills from talented players on his Toronto Maple Leafs team.”

The IBL named its championship the Jack and Lynne Dominico Trophy, which the Leafs have won eight times, the first in 1972.

“In their 2002 championship season, the Leafs were undefeated at home, a league first,” the IBL said.

Dominico was inducted into the North Bay Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. Hall said he came from a well-known North Bay family and had played minor ball and hockey in the city before. to leave town to pursue a career in journalism.

He worked in Sault Ste Marie, Gravenhurst and Etobicoke before starting his own marketing business in Toronto in 1969 and acquiring the Ontario Hockey League as a key client.

Dominico bought the Leafs in 1969 and under his ownership the team won numerous championships while playing their home games (no admission fee) at Christie Pits in Etobicoke.

“Training over the years has included some former Blue Jays and Damon Topolie of North Bay captured for the club for a number of seasons and later becoming a coach,” North Bay Hall said.

Dominico was inducted into the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame in 2004 along with Frank Orr, Red Kelly and Frank Selke Jr.

In 2010, Christie Pits’ main diamond was named in honor of Jack and his late wife Lynne who worked with him, with the team and at the stadium every step of the way.

No funeral arrangements have yet been announced.

Korean starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin for the Toronto Blue Jays has embarked on preparations for the new season. According to his agency Aspect Corporation, Ryu began training on Thursday at Gangchanghak baseball field on Jeju Island. Training is set to last more than two weeks until January 21 with personal trainer Jang Se-hong, Jang Min-jae and Kim Gi-tak of Hwanhwa, and Lee Tae-yang of SSG joining the Korean Major League for his training. . Ryu pays the bills for the group training sessions.

Ryu had undergone personal training in Okinawa, Japan, before spring camp started. But he had to move to Jeju last year due to the spread of COVID-19. Ryu, who arrived in South Korea in October, was training to get back into shape with restorative workouts and heavy loads after taking a break. His sessions in Jeju will focus on outdoor training such as the long throw, capitalizing on the island’s warmer climate.

After completing his training in Jeju, Ryu plans to schedule his departure after following the progress of MLB negotiations. In December of last year, Major League Baseball went into lockdown after an unsuccessful attempt at collective bargaining. Even players are not allowed to use their training facilities at this time.

How did the Yankees’ vacation additions fare after joining the team? https://nyrenegades.com/how-did-the-yankees-vacation-additions-fare-after-joining-the-team/ Sat, 25 Dec 2021 22:00:00 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/how-did-the-yankees-vacation-additions-fare-after-joining-the-team/ Hello everyone, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and have a happy New Year’s Eve.

Hello everyone, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and have a happy New Year’s Eve. The holiday season got some of us at PSA in the mood. Yesterday, Jesse compiled his Christmas wishlist of the four things he hopes to see from the Yankees once the new collective agreement is ratified, and earlier today Matt recalled some big ‘Christmas stockings’ from the Yankees. Yankees. To stay on topic, I thought I would go back to the best “Christmas presents” the Yankees have received and rank them by fWAR.

Granted, the Yankees never signed or traded for a player on Christmas Day itself, so I widened the review window by a week on either side. I also decided to only count the WAR accumulated during the Yankees’ uninterrupted tenure after their signing / exchange, which is why Roger Clemens – signed his penultimate contract with the Yankees on December 30, 2002 – Dave Righetti – extended Dec. 23, 1987 – and Tommy John – brought back for the Yankees’ second stint on Dec. 21, 1987 – all fail for inclusion in this list. With those qualifications covered, let’s look under the Christmas tree.

12. Gary Sheffield, December 19, 2003 (6.5 fWAR)

Prior to the 2003 season, the Yankees signed Gary Sheffield to a three-year, $ 39 million contract. Even at the age of 35 and 36, Sheffield was still one of the best hitters in the game, passing 30 homers and 120 RBIs en route to a pair of All-Star appearances.

However, a collision with Shea Hillenbrand of Toronto in May 2006 resulted in wrist surgery. This virtually ended the Sheffield Yankees career as he only returned in September and was traded the following offseason with Bobby Abreu now entrenched in right field.

11. Gerrit Cole, December 18, 2019 (6.7 fWAR)

After two masterful seasons in Houston, during which he transformed into one of the best pitchers in the game, the Yankees signed Gerrit Cole to a record nine-year $ 324 million contract in the 2019 offseason. -2020. And while he’s been the Yankees’ best pitcher by far and one of the league’s best starters since joining, it’s fair to say that Cole has so far not fully delivered on his promise to arrive. , the Yankees escaping the 2021 Wild Card game as their ace attempted to throw on an injured hamstring.

10. Bullet Joe Bush, December 20, 1921 (8.5 fWAR)

In the winter of 1921, the Yankees acquired Bullet Joe Bush as part of a three-player comeback in a trade that sent Rip Collins, Roger Peckinpaugh, Bill Piercy, Jack Quinn and $ 100,000 to the Red Sox. He finished fourth in the 1922 AL MVP poll and was part of the 1923 that won the inaugural Yankees nomination. World events Title. In three seasons in the Bronx, Bush went 62-38 with a 3.44 ERA and 297 strikeouts, pitching at least 250 innings in each campaign.

9. David Wells, December 24, 1996 (8.7 fWAR)

David Wells signed for his first stint with the Yankees before the 1997 season and picked number 33 as a tribute to Babe Ruth. Boomer memorably kicked off the 15th Perfect Game in MLB history – and the second in Yankees history – on May 17, 1998, when he apparently had a serious hangover.

Wells won his second World Series ring that year before being traded to the Blue Jays in the offseason as part of the package that brought Roger Clemens to the Bronx.

T-7. Sad Sam Jones, December 20, 1921 (10.1 fWAR)

Sad Sam Jones was the second of three players included in the aforementioned 1921 trade between New York and Boston. He pitched a hit on September 4, 1923, becoming only the third player in MLB history to pitch a hit without recording a strikeout. He also won the 1923 World Series against the Giants, converting the stoppage in the deciding Game 6. In five seasons with the Yankees, Jones went 67-56 with a 4.06 ERA and 363 strikeouts.

T-7. Catfish Hunter, December 31, 1974 (10.1 fWAR)

Following a breach of contract dispute with the A’s in 1974, when Oakland owner Charlie Finley refused to pay an agreed-upon amount of $ 50,000 in a life insurance annuity, an arbitrator granted Hunter free will. Soon after, he became baseball’s most expensive player, signing a groundbreaking five-year, $ 3.35 million contract with the Yankees. He was part of the World Series winning teams of 1977 and 1978, but struggled with arm injuries in the later years of his career after more than 300 consecutive seasons in 1974 and 1975. Hunter was elected to the Hall of Famous in 1987 but unfortunately passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1999.

6. Hideki Matsui, December 19, 2002 (12.6 fWAR)

After playing the first 10 years of his career with the Yomiuri Giants, Matsui signed a three-year, $ 21 million contract with the Yankees in December 2002. Godzilla terrorized opposing pitchers in his first season in the greats, narrowly missing the recruit. of the year after two writers contested his age.

Matsui capped his tenure with the Yankees in style, winning the 2009 World Series MVP after going 8-for-13 with three homers and eight RBIs, including his six-point smackdown in the deciding Game 6 during the Philly.

5. Luis Severino, December 26, 2011 (13.0 fWAR)

The Yankees signed Luis Severino as a 17-year-old international free agent in 2011. Despite some early growth struggles after his debut in 2015, Severino rose to the national stage with two seasons of more than five wins in 2017 and 2018, looking like one of the league’s new aces. Sadly, injuries have limited him to just 18 innings since the start of the 2019 season, and the Yankees will be hoping he can regain some of his dominant form three years and two major injuries withdrawn from sustained success.

4. David Cone, December 21, 1995 (18.1 fWAR)

The Yankees acquired David Cone from the Blue Jays just before the trade deadline in 1995 and extended him for three years, $ 19.5 million that winter. He was a full member of the more recent Yankee dynasty which won four titles in five years. He also pitched the 16th Perfect Game in MLB history just one year after his teammate Wells’ feat.

In an astonishing twist, that day was Yogi Berra’s first return to Yankee Stadium after a long feud with George Steinbrenner, and the Hall of Fame catcher caught the first ceremonial pitch that day from Don Larsen, which he caught the perfect match in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

3. Jason Giambi, December 18, 2000 (21.9 fWAR)

After a two-year stint in which he won the 2000 AL MVP and was worth nearly 17 wins, Jason Giambi signed a seven-year, $ 120 million contract with the Yankees. Although he never quite reached the heights of his later years at Oakland, Giambi was arguably one of the most underrated players on his Yankees teams, consistently leading the league running while continuing to strike for power.

In seven years in the Bronx, Giambi beat 0.260 / 0.404 / 0.521 with 209 home runs, 604 RBIs and 145 wRC +, narrowly missing a ring with the team when his 2009 option was turned down.

2. CC Sabathia, December 18, 2008 (31.6 fWAR)

After his exploits in his half-season with the Brewers, Sabathia signed a record seven-year, $ 161 million pitcher contract as part of the inaugural season of the new Yankee Stadium. He helped win a title that year and dominated his first three seasons in the Bronx, setting up a trio of seasons with more than five wins.

However, chronic issues resulting from a 2011 meniscus tear in the right knee undermined the southpaw’s speed and efficiency during the final years of his tenure with the Yankees, although a change in form led to a mini-resurgence from 2016-18 until his retirement in 2019.

1. Babe Ruth, December 26, 1919 (149.9 fWAR)

And finally, who is more apt to top the list of the Yankees’ most valuable Christmas gifts than the King of war himself, Babe Ruth. On December 26, 1919, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the rights to Ruth to the Yankees for $ 100,000 and a loan of $ 350,000 from Yankee owner Jacob Ruppert, secured by a mortgage on Fenway Park. The rest is history, as Ruth would win four World Series with the Yankees, setting the single-season home run record at 60 in 1927 – broken by Roger Maris in 1961 – career home run record at 714 – beaten by Henry Aaron in 1974 – and the record 15 wins in a single season in WAR in 1923, becoming the most iconic legend in the history of the game.

Most games played for each MLB team https://nyrenegades.com/most-games-played-for-each-mlb-team/ Thu, 23 Dec 2021 02:43:54 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/most-games-played-for-each-mlb-team/ There are some players who, when you think of a team, you can’t help but think of this player carrying this uniform.

There are some players who, when you think of a team, you can’t help but think of this player carrying this uniform. There is something about putting on this uniform every day that stays on people’s minds. You will always wear this uniform … even if one day you wear someone else’s.

With that in mind, we take a look at which player from each team wore their team’s jersey on more often: the player who has played the most games with each individual franchise. For franchises that have evolved over the years (think Dodgers and Giants), we’ve included Leader in Games Played at their current location, while also noting the overall leader in the franchise.

Blue Jays: Tony Fernandez, SS (1,450)
Runner-up: Carlos Delgado, 1B (1,423)
Fernandez has actually played for seven teams in his career, but 12 seasons of his 17-year career have come with the Jays; he is ahead of Delgado by 27 games. The Jays have several players on the roster right now, you might expect, they would love to see Fernandez pass one day.

Orioles: Cal Ripken Jr., SS / 3B (3,001)
Runner-up: Brooks Robinson (2,896)
The streak may have ended in 2,632 games, but Ripken actually played 3,001 games for the Orioles. Robinson is much closer to Cal than you might think otherwise.

Spokes: Evan Longoria, 3B (1435)
Runner-up: Carl Crawford (1235)
Longoria is the only active player on this list, even though he left town four years ago. Fred McGriff, delightfully, is 10th on this list with 577 games .. just ahead Desmond Jennings.

Red Sox: Carl Yastrzemski, OF (3,308)
Finalist: Dwight Evans, OF (2,505)
For a team with such a rich history as the Red Sox, it’s shocking to see someone so far ahead of second place. Sure, Yaz is second on the all-time games played list behind Pete Rose, but Yaz has only played for one team.

Yankees: Derek Jeter, SS (2,747)
Finalist: Mickey Mantle, OF (2,401)
Lots of big names on this list, obviously, although Yogi Berra (2,116 as a player) surpasses Jeter if you count all the many matches he’s worn the uniform long after his playing days are over.

Cleveland: Terry Turner, INF (1,619)
Runner-up: Nap Lajoie, 2B (1614)
A surprisingly unknown player for a team with such a long history, Turner played exclusively during the dead ball era and ended his career with eight homers. He made seven home runs until 1906, then hit one more in 4,958 home plate appearances from 1907 to 1919.

Royals: George Brett, 3B (2,707)
Runner-up: Frank White, 2B (2,324)
Brett played two full decades for the Royals, from his season at 20 to 40. Did you know he stole 201 bases in his career?

Tigers: Al Kaline, OF (2,834)
Finalist: Ty Cobb, OF (2,806)
Kaline is one of the most underrated players in baseball history … but certainly not by Tigers fans.

Twins: Harmon Killebrew, 1B / 3B / OF (1,939)
Runner-up: Joe Mauer, C / 1B (1,858)
Killebrew also played a few seasons for the Senators before the club moved to Minnesota, so if you count his franchise total, it’s 2,329, and then there’s a bunch of Senators that would be before Mauer. But if we only look at the Minny years, Mauer is # 2.

White Sox: Luke Appling, SS (2,422)
Runner-up: Paul Konerko, 1B (2,268)
Appling was the all-time leader of the games when he retired, earning his famous nickname “Old Aches and Pains”. As for Konerko, it’s easy to forget that he made his debut with the Dodgers and played part of two seasons in LA (and one in Cincinnati!) Before landing on the South Side.

Angels: Garret Anderson, OF (2,013)
Finalist: Tim Salmon, OF (1,672)
Anderson struggled with injuries at the end of his career, but his longevity is underestimated: he ended up with over 2,500 hits, after all.

A: Rickey Henderson, OF (1,704)
Finalist: Sal Bando, 3B (1,410)
We’re only looking at the Oakland years here… if we count the time the franchise spent before moving to Oakland (including Kansas City and Philly), the answer is Bert Campaneris (1795).

Astros: Craig Biggio, 2B / C (2,850)
Runner-up: Jeff Bagwell, 1B (2,150)
It’s probably fair to say that moving away from wide receiver status has helped extend Biggio’s career a bit, right? There is probably no other franchise with a more obvious top two than this.

Navigators: Edgar Martinez, 3B / DH (2,055)
Finalist: Ichiro Suzuki, OF (1,861)
Ichiro didn’t make his Seattle debut until he was 27, so he would be the clear leader here if he hadn’t spent his formative years playing in Japan.

Rangers: Michael Young, SS / 2B (1,823)
Finalist: Elvis Andrus, SS (1652)
Young people came this nearly twice a World Series, but his 13 years at Arlington outlived everyone.

Braves: Chipper Jones, 3B (2,499)
Finalist: Dale Murphy, OF (1,926)
If you include all of the Braves’ history, Hank Aaron (3,076 games with the franchise) is the runaway leader, but he has spent much of his career with the Milwaukee Braves and has played “only” 1,270 games at home. Atlanta.

Marlins: Luis Castillo, 2B (1,128)
Finalist: Jeff Conine, OF (1,014)
Like you, I thought the answer would be Conine. He was missing 114 games. Castillo actually leads the Marlins in games (breathe), batting, home plate appearances, runs, hits, trebles, stolen bases, steals caught and sack cavities.

Foods: Ed Kranepool, 1B (1853)
Runner-up: David Wright, 3B (1,585)
It’s still Ed! Wright’s injuries prevented him from catching it. But because Kranepool has spent so much time as a part-time player, Wright has a lot more home plate appearances with the Mets than Kranepool (6,872-5,997) … not to mention a lot more hits, homers. , product points, shopping and pretty much everything in between.

Nationals: Ryan Zimmerman, 3B / 1B (1,799)
Finalists: Bryce Harper and Ian Desmond (927)
We don’t necessarily count Zimmerman as “active” because he could retire, but the Nationals’ first-ever draft pick has represented the franchise honorably for nearly two decades.

Reminder: we are only looking at Washington years with the names above. If we include the Montreal years (before 2005), the top 10 is made up of all the players who accumulated their totals mainly with the Expos. We say “mainly” because of Jose Vidro (No.6 on the list), who played 1,186 games for the franchise, including 213 in Washington.

Phillies: Mike Schmidt, 3B (2,404)
Runner-up: Jimmy Rollins (2,090)
Believe it or not, Rollins actually had more batting appearances than Schmidt with the Phillies (8,628-8,352), which can be attributed to the fact that Rollins has almost always been at bat and walked much less often than Schmidt. .

Brewers: Robin Yount, SS / OF (2,856)
Finalist: Paul Molitor, 3B (1,856)
We will all be thinking of Yount whenever we see that specific hat logo, forever. I bet you didn’t know he played exactly 1,000 more games in Milwaukee than Molitor.

Cardinals: Stan Musial, 1B / OF (3,026)
Finalist: Lou Brock, OF (2,289)
The man set the precedent and example for Cardinals baseball that the franchise tries to uphold even today.

Bears: Ernie Banks, SS / 1B (2,528)
Runner-up: Cap Anson, 1B (2,277)
Mr. Cub played for three different decades at Friendly Confines and, of course, never sniffed a World Series or playoff game. He’s the all-time record holder in most games played without ever making the playoffs, and he’s pretty sure such a sad record will stand the test of time.

Pirates: Roberto Clemente, OF and Honus Wagner, SS (2,433)
Runner-up: Willie Stargell, 1B (2360)
Clemente and Wagner having the exact same number of games played for the Pirates is one of the stats that gets you to do a quadruple take.

Reds: Pete Rose, 1B / 3B / OF (2,722)
Finalist: Dave Concepcion, SS (2,488)
Rose still tops this list despite spending time with the Expos and Phillies.

Defenders D: Luis Gonzalez, OF (1,194)
Finalist: Paul Goldschmidt (1092)
Gonzalez has played 1,194 games for the D-backs, but it’s fair to say that he will be remembered for one – that draw in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series – mostly.

Dodgers: Bill Russell, SS (2,181)
Finalist: Willie Davis, OF (1952)
Russell isn’t the guy you would have thought, is he? The shortstop / outfielder played 18 years at the Dodger Blue and competed in four different World Series. Of course, we’re only looking at the LA years here. If you count the time the franchise spent in Brooklyn (before 1958), Zack Wheat (2,322 games) became No. 1.

Giants: Willie McCovey, 1B (2,256)
Finalist: Willie Mays, OF (2,095)
Totals above include only the San Francisco years. If we include Mays’ seven seasons with the New York Giants (1951-57), he goes to No.1 with 2,857 games played with the franchise, and Mel Ott – who played exclusively for the New York Giants – would be No. 2 at 2730. McCovey’s entire career with the Giants has been in San Francisco (he also spent time in Oakland and San Diego).

Chaplains: Tony Gwynn, OF (2,440)
Runner-up: Garry Templeton, SS (1,286)
It is a testament to Gwynn’s longevity and identity with this club that he has almost twice as many games played as No.2 on this list.

Rockies: Todd Helton, 1B (2,247)
Runner-up: Charlie Blackmon, OF (1,269)
Helton’s Hall of Fame affair still looks like a referendum on how voters treat Colorado and Coors Field. How many players will it take to leave the Rockies and keep hitting well (Matt Holliday and DJ LeMahieu, to name just two) for people to realize that great hitters like Helton aren’t just Coors creations?

The major league part of the rule 5 draft may be suspended, but the minor league phase is proceeding as planned.

The teams will meet by teleconference Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET. to select the players.

You can find our rundown of the intriguing names teams might covet. Several launchers from the Rays and Guardians organizations are on our radar.

Unlike the draft MLB Rule 5, there are no list restrictions or other rules with respect to MiLB Rule 5 choices. Once a player is selected, the selection team pays the previous team $ 24,500 and the player is added to the selection club’s AAA list. This Triple-A roster designation is simply a procedural move – the player can be assigned to any level in the minors by their new team and there are no other roster requirements.

Of the 56 players selected in last year’s MiLB Rule 5 draft, 54 have played for their new clubs, five have reached the major leagues and 16 have played in Triple-A.

Below we will follow the results of each selection. The order is as follows.

ROUND 1
TO TAKE TEAM PLAYER POS
1 Baltimore Orioles
2 Arizona Diamondbacks
3 Texas Rangers
4 Pirates of pittsburgh
5 Washington Nationals
6 Miami Marlins
7 Chicago Cubs
8 Minnesota Twins
9 Kansas City Royals
ten Colorado Rockies
11 Detroit Tigers
12 Los Angeles Angels
13 New York food
14 San Diego Padres
15 Cleveland Indians
16 Philadelphia philly
17 Cincinnati Reds
18 Oakland Athletics
19 Atlanta Braves
20 Seattle sailors
21 Cardinals of Saint-Louis
22 Toronto Blue Jays
23 Boston Red Sox
24 New York Yankees
25 Chicago White Sox
26 Milwaukee Brewers
27 Houston Astros
28 Tampa Bay Rays

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.

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.
