The two prospects everyone is waiting on remain in the minors. A pair of very talented catching prospects are nearing call up and speed in the outfield and a potential star corner infielder round out the focus of this week's hitters on the Farm Report.
Five pitchers for you in this week's edition of Farm Report. We have the two young guns that are already on many rosters. A former young gun that once enjoyed near Strasburg hype, a prospect that was roughed up and sent back down and a flame thrower stretching out after not finding success as a closer.
While we have some young talent making their debut in "The Show" this week, we also have a former All-Star who is finally all the way back.
We don't have any "can't miss" prospects debuting of late, but we can share some hurlers that have a shot at contributing for your ball club. Half a dozen arms have been hand picked for your review, including a couple of short men that could end up landing you saves.
Is your pitching staff tired? In need of a shot in the arm? While there are plenty of free agent options, often time it is the rookie find that can turn things around. These five arms should be on your radar and are worthy of your free agent dollars or draft position when they get the call.
Who is next? As we move towards the midway point of the 2012 season, often times call-ups are a far better option that hitting that has been sitting on your waiver wire off and on all season. Here are half a dozen players worthy of keeping an eye on.
Yesterday we brought you some pitching options, today we take a closer look at some hitters that should be on your radar. Our segment focuses on those players that were recently sent down to the minors and/or are expected to be called up soon.
Does it seem that an extraordinary amount of pitching has ended up on the disabled list this season? While it sure seems that way, studies show the numbers are actually below the norm. What we do know for sure is that you have an open pitching spot on your roster or will have one open up sometime this week.
Just four weeks in to the season and already major league clubs are scouring their affiliates for help. This past week saw the games two biggest prospects in Bryce Harper and Mike Trout called up to the big leagues. This week I take a look at the recent recalls and discuss whether they are up for good or just a short term fix. We’ll also take a look at some of the best remaining prospects and see how they are doing down on the farm. So, if you’d like to stay ahead of your fantasy league and be able to tell all your buddies what skills the latest AAA recalls possess, come with me for the rest of the Farm Report.
It seems like Major League teams were being ultra exclusive this spring. So many worthy prospects were left off of big league rosters it makes you wonder whether teams are thinking with their mind or their pocketbook. Either way this leaves a ton of great players in the minor leagues and that suits us just fine. Every week we’ll take a look down on the farm and let you know who is raking and who is struggling. We’ll also analyze which players are in line for a call up whether it’s because of injuries or performance. So, let’s take a look at how some of those snubbed prospects are faring down on the farm.
