2017 RECAP

Record: 38 - 37

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

King Felix proved why he is still royal. In 2014, the King mowed down 248 hitters while posting a 2.14 ERA and 0.92 WHIP. In the pen, Fernando Rodney shot his arrows all year, proving that he is far from done, saving 48 games with a respectable 2.85 ERA. His 94.9 average fastball velocity shows he was doing it with more than mirrors. On offense, Robinson Cano did not produce a quarter of a billion dollars of value but he did stabilize the Mariner lineup and hit .314 with a .382 OBP.

What Has Changed?

Nelson Cruz arrives from Baltimore to provide protection in the lineup for Cano. Not much else to get excited about on the arrival ledger unless the platoon combo of Justin Ruggiano and Seth Smith or J.A. Happ’s addition to the rotation gets your juices flowing.

What to Expect:

Expect Nelson Cruz to be overdrafted. Seattle is a far tougher place to hit for power than Camden Yards. In addition, 2014 was the first and only time Cruz registered 600 or more at-bats. Robbie Cano, on the other hand, will provide value as his performance likely rises in year two in his new home. Given that he is as durable as they come and his contact rate and K-rate actually improved last year, there is every reason to invest and feel safe.

This Year’s Surprise:

Dustin Ackley will be the next in a long line of so-called “post-hype sleepers” to exceed his draft day value. Ackley is only 26 and already has over 1,800 major league at-bats. In all candor, the advanced metrics are mixed. However, now that Ackley has a job, is not being moved around to different positions and is hitting his prime, a jump up in value is possible.
