It’s not a real surprise to see so many from the wRC+ list are also on these lists. On the plus side, it helps narrows our search a bit for potentially impactful fantasy producers moving forward.

Of course, some of these AAA players have been recently promoted and may not be available to your fantasy teams anymore. In fact, I was lucky to grab a few shares of Christopher Morel a couple weeks before his promotion (for virtually nothing) and now enjoying the fruits of that labor. I’ve also missed on a few others too, but that’s the fun of it. There’s no time for a victory lap though. We need to answer the question, “Who’s next?”
Thanks Foxman, I appreciate the feedback. I love how you’re mining and flipping prospects. All things equal, I think Cowser has the clearer line to a call-up, especially with Mateo and Henderson locking up the left side of the infield. Cowser’s quad injury looks minor right now but we’ll have to see if it slows the process at all. I’d feel a little more encouraged with a Westburg call-up if his BB/K wasn’t upside down (9.9% BB vs 23.6% K). The O’s seem content with Frazier at 2B too but if that changes, Westburg should be the guy. I expect both in Baltimore by the Summer but unless catastrophe occurs in the near term, it seems to me Cowser is closer right now.

Fantasy Gold right here. I have been stashing Elly for 3 weeks, starting to get trade offers now. I was thinking about who could be my new stash if I trade Elly. I really like the idea of stash and trades. Hype machine gets so loud when guys get called up, that you can usually get a quality, proven MLB player in exchange. I was thinking Westburg, but you think Cowser is a better play? Trying to figure out where they play.The first thing to note is that a good number of these players have or are currently playing in the Bigs. Most recently, Matt Mervis and Christopher Morel were notable promotions by the Cubs. Mervis hasn’t exactly lit MLB on fire with a .222/.256/.317 slash and 1 HR. On the other hand, Morel is the epitome of what we fake baseball folks look for in promotions, currently slashing .371/.389/.857 with 5 HRs in only 8 games. Others like Keston Hiura, Zack Collins, and Jo Adell may have burned some bridges in the fantasy world but will certainly garner interest if/when they return to The Show.Colton Cowser, OF, Orioles: Colton Cowser has been on the fantasy radar for some time but has not yet received his call to Baltimore yet. Unfortunately, a quad injury just this week may delay that call even further. Regardless, there’s little question he is ready. In his second stint in AAA, Cowser has flourished based on advanced metrics.

The objective of wRC+ is to quantify run creation and normalize it so we can compare players apples-to-apples. This is going to be very important when we look at players across both the International League (IL) and Pacific Coast League (PCL).
dying to add Baker and or Domcanzone, i can find where the dbacks will play Dom, but cannot figure out where Cards play Baker..any insight? Baker’s on track for like 45HR in AAA and an equal K and BB%I’ve said it before and will say it again here…huge props to the MLB teams which are bringing up so many of their young players instead of manipulating service time. Certainly, not all prospects are ready and may not stick the first time (like Mervis). For us in the fake baseball realm though, it’s always exciting to play the prospect lottery and ride the wave like we’re currently seeing with Christopher Morel. Fun times!Again, we find a majority of the AAA HR leaders, including the top 6 in each league, rank in the top 20 on the wRC+ table above. In fact, it’s reassuring to me that so many of the top players on the wRC+ list are also included on the other lists. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting you limit your research to a single analytic, but some are clearly very useful to us in fantasy baseball. wRC+ is one of them. We’re all about bats today. By now, you should have a good feel for the strengths and weaknesses of your offensive categories. Are you falling behind in: R? RBI? HR? AVE? No matter what you need, I’ve got you covered here. Jake Scheiner, 3B, Mariners: Jake Scheiner is an under-the-radar player who is quietly making a name for himself in Tacoma this season, amassing 12 HRs and inclusion in all the top 20 lists above. Scheiner was acquired by the M’s in 2019 and systematically worked his way through the system to the edge of a big league callup.Hello again, fake baseball fans! After a brief hiatus last week to take the fam on a much-needed vacation, I’m back with your weekly dose of fantasy baseball analytics here at Razzball.

Makes sense to me. Plus Urias back at some point will only add to that infield congestion. Cowser will be my guy as soon as I see he is back in game action. Thanks
In summary, wRC+ is a statistic which attempts to credit a hitter for the value of each outcome (single, double, etc.) rather than treating all hits or times on base equally, while also controlling for park effects and the current run environment.

The topic of finding prospects is exciting enough on its own. There’s no need for me to further introduce this subject with my eminent comicality and banter. Comicality and banter…, ok maybe my vacation was too long, my apologies! Let’s just dive right into the analytics and identify a few names to keep an eye on.
Now that we have the lists, who should we be keeping our eyes on, perhaps even stashing now, before the FAAB rush? Here is a suggestion from each league:

League average is considered 100 so we’ll be searching for players significantly north of that threshold. Here are the top 20 across the IL and PCL, respectively:
I’m with you on Baker, the path to playing time in StL is just not there for him. He’ll eventually get a shot sometime if he keeps it up but it’s really hard to identify how that happens right now. Of course, it is the Cards so you never know…

Are you an owner who looks to jump on the exciting youngsters who get the call to The Show? If so, you’re at the right place. Today, we’ll be looking at the current crop of players in AAA to identify a few who may soon help your squads win championships.Stating the obvious, fantasy baseball is a grind. In addition to all the data to track for MLB players, it pays to keep an eye on the minor league stats as well so you’re ready to beat your league mates to the punch. I’ll revisit this topic later in the season when we traditionally see more prospects getting the call. For now, though, make sure you place some of the names above on your handy-dandy free agency board and hold it close!

His BB% has almost doubled, K% has decreased by almost a third, and contract % is up to over 70%. In addition to being 5 in the IL for wRC+, Cowser ranks 2 in OBP (0.469), 7 in OPS (1.023), and 11 in BABIP (0.415). Although I didn’t cover SB or the advanced stat of Speed (Spd) specifically, it’s worth noting Cowser has 5 bags (0 in 26 AAA games last year) and an impressive Spd value of 6.645 so far this season. There’s little question he’ll get his shot to make an impact with the big club and your fantasy teams very soon. Stash!
His current slash of .273/.383/.587 represents the best of his career, steadily increasing over the past 3 seasons in the upper minors. Much like Cowser above, Scheiner’s advanced metrics show the same growth: BB% is up, K% is down, contact % is up, ISO is up and BABIP is up. He may very well be a Eugenio Suarez injury away from an everyday shot with Julio and the boys in Seattle. If that happens, most fantasy owners will probably not know much about the prospect. Keep an eye on but be ready to pounce!

“We have a life sentence without Janari. It’s all about him. We have a life sentence without that little boy. Nine years old. We won’t see him again,” Ford said.
Janari Ricks’ family said they knew Darrell Johnson because he grew up in the area and he had a distinctive limp. Prosecutors said it was actually that old injury from a shooting that gave him away. He’s being held with no bond.

In 2005, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for attempted aggravated carjacking and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He’d previously been sentenced in 2002 to probation for an aggravated battery.
Prosecutors said 39-year-old Darrell Johnson was caught on surveillance cameras stopping multiple times peering through fences, as if he was looking for someone. After the shooting, witnesses saw him limping away from the scene. Johnson had the characteristic limp since he was shot several years ago in the leg and ankle. Balloons, flowers and candles have taken over the sidewalk in front of the Cabrini row houses. It’s the spot where prosecutors said nine-year-old Janari Ricks was standing, shaking hands with a friend when he heard shots on Friday night. On Sunday, officers saw Johnson attempting to enter that same car that was caught on surveillance camera after the shooting and he was taken into custody.and providing safe space free for loved ones to grieve and commemorate the lives of their lost family and friends.

Upon arrival, officers found the victim, 31-year-old Jarez Cyril Ricks, suffering from two gunshot wounds to the chest. EMS transported Ricks to EAMC Lanier Emergency Room, where he succumbed to injuries.The two-part event at Eden United Church of Christ kicks off Saturday. The goal, said pastor Jacki Belile, is to “connect heart to heart” through art, dialogue and food.

Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said during a press conference Monday that police were able to quickly take Johnson into custody thanks to neighbors who spoke up about the shooting.
Instead, 9-year-old Ricks, who was playing outside hear his home, was shot several times before Johnson took off, police said. Ricks was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7 p.m.

Boyd was ordered held without bond during a Tuesday hearing. His defense attorney told the court that he has only one prior crime on his record, a 2009 drug conviction.
“Many communities lack trust completely that we have to build from ground zero…I would encourage those communities that don’t have a sense of trust to look at this community as an example of how they can be made safer by bringing violent criminal offenders to justice and off the streets of Chicago,” Brown said.

Ald. Walter Burnett Jr. (27th), who grew up in Cabrini Green and knows Ricks’ family personally, said the shooting stemmed from a feud between two men whose families have known each other for nearly 50 years. Both men no longer live in the area where the shooting happened.Additionally, Chicago Police charged 30-year-old Terrell Boyd of Racine, Wisconsin for the murder of Natalia Wallace, a 7-year-old girl who was visiting family on the West Side for the Fourth of July when she was gunned down. A GoFundMe campaign to help the family of Janari Ricks pay for funeral expenses has been created. A Stop the Violence march in Janari’s honor will kick off from the school he attended —Edward Jenner Public School, 1119 N. Cleveland Ave. 4 p.m. Thursday. He is the third offender charged in Natalia’s slaying. Reginald Merrill, the alleged driver in the shooting, was charged July 7 and Davion Mitchell, one of the alleged shooters, was charged July 15. Police said they are still searching for Boyd’s brother in connection to the shooting.Ald. Andre Vasquez (40th) has previously asked neighbors to stop setting off fireworks. This year, officials will fence off the baseball fields, police will patrol the park and Amundsen High School’s parking lot will be closed.“We’re not in this position without the help of the community who came forward and gave us information which allowed us to identify and arrest the suspect,” Deenihan said. “So, all the video in the world and all the hard work of the detectives, we aren’t able to arrest the suspect unless the community comes forward and actually helps us, and in this case they did.”

Darrell Johnson, 39, faces a felony murder charge in the fatal shooting of 9-year-old Janari Ricks last Friday. A third man was also charged in the West Side slaying of a 7-year-old girl.
