Anthony Rendon’s Record-Setting Day Erased an Abysmal Start

In case you missed the New York Mets and Washington Nationals face off in the final game of a three-game weekend series, there’s a pretty good way to describe what happened. All you need to know is that Nats third baseman Anthony Rendon did more at the plate himself than the entire Mets offense.

On a day in which Washington accumulated 23 runs on 23 hits, Rendon was the standout star — which is inevitable when you go 6-for-6 with three home runs, five runs scored and 10 RBI.

It’s hard to escape the spotlight following something like that.

There were a lot of firsts that came with this, as well. He was the first player to record a 10-RBI game since Garret Anderson did it back in 2007, but this factoid pretty much takes the cake.

Boston Red Sox History Tidbits

Baseball is fun as much for the trivia, stories and tidbits of knowledge that accumulate as for the actual action that takes place on the field. The Boston Red Sox are one of the most storied franchises in the sport, and as such have a rich trove of factoids. Here is a sampling.

At least this one wasn’t in Coors. The second cycle in Carlos Gomez’s career put the Rangers over the top over the Angels.

But don’t get used to this list. There is bound to be another one soon!

Texas Rangers Top 25 Prospects

For the second straight year, the Texas Rangers ran away with the AL West with a 95-67 record, and for the second straight year, they failed to make it out of the division series, getting swept by their new arch rival, the Toronto Blue Jays. Despite the repeat result, 2016 was an encouraging year for the Rangers. Older, broken down players like Prince Fielder and Josh Hamilton stepped aside, leading to younger players like Rougned Odor and Nomar Mazara to start the Rangers identity overhaul. Ace pitcher Yu Darvish finally came back from injury to contribute down the stretch as well, and late season additions Carlos Beltran and Jonathan Lucroy ensured that the Rangers would be the AL West’s only postseason representative. And who could forget Matt Bush? The former number 1 pick, who had seen his career bottom out due to addiction and legal troubles, found a home with the Rangers, and became a key part of their bullpen during the season.

Positional players are currently made of both experienced veterans and young phenoms who could be the faces of the franchise moving forward. Jonathan Lucroy is only entering his second season with the club, but has hit the 30-years mark and is an expiring contract. Adrian Beltre is nearing 40 and will likely play out his newly signed contract before hanging up the cleats for good. There are a handful of openings available, but also a number locked up moving forward. Rougned Odor and Elvis Andrus are both inked for the next six seasons and prospects Joey Gallo, Nomar Mazara and Jurickson Profar have become regular contributors in the everyday lineup. The club is set up in a favorable position if they can reload at the voiding positions in the next couple years.

Texas Rangers’ Minor League System

The Jonathon Lucroy and Carlos Beltran trades saw a great deal of prospects moved to both the Brewers and the Yankees, including 2012. 2014, and 2015 first rounders Lewis Brinson, Luis Ortiz, and Dillon Tate. In spite of this, organizational rankings put Texas in the middle of the pack. This isn’t to say the Rangers farm system is lacking, in fact, it shows that the remaining Rangers’ prospects do have significant value. With Mazara completely shattering expectations of who he is and Matt Bush’s revival, it’s clear that once the system repopulates from the Lucroy and Beltran deals, the Rangers could once again be a top 10 organization.

The Rangers’ system is very well represented internationally, with their top 5 players all ISD products, and their 2016 draft gave them two top ten prospects as well. Texas has done a lot better with international prospects in the past three years, and it’s likely that that trend will continue. A number of the top options, Leody Tavares and Cole Ragans, remain a few years away from any real contributions at the top level. However, there is a fair mix of players ready to make an impact: Jose Leclerc, Yohander Mendez, and Jose Trevino.

Matt Holliday reached base 4 times, scored 3 runs and capped off an improbable Yankee comeback with a 10th inning 3 run walk off homer to stun the Orioles, 14-11.

Travis d’Arnaud hit a pair of homers and drove in 5 runs as the Mets held off Washington, 7-5.

Charlie Morton overcame early trouble to throw 7 innings, allowing 3 runs, striking out 12 Oakland batters and getting the 9-4 victory for Houston.

Jacob deGrom struck out 12 Nationals batters in 7 innings, allowing just 3 runs and earned the 7-5 decision for the Mets.

A.J. Pollock and David Peralta Are Just What Arizona Needed

Just about everything from the 2016 season could be viewed as a disaster for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Looking back now, it was probably a bit of foreshadowing when outfielder — and spark plug — A.J. Pollock went down with an elbow injury on the eve of the regular season.

Instead of taking a step forward from the 79-83 record they posted in 2015, they took a step back with a 69-93 mark.

While the outlook of this club looked more grim heading into 2017 compared to the year before, there was still a lot of young talent to get excited about.

There are another five months to go in the regular season, but here we are, with them competing for the top of the National League West with a 15-9 record.

That looks a lot different from last April, when they finished with a 12-14 record, and the presence of both Pollock and David Peralta in the first two spots of the lineup has been a noticeable and welcome difference.

Prospects of the Day: Dodgers’ Yadier Alvarez Stellar in Abbreviated Start

After yesterday’s performance by names you normally don’t see storming up prospect rankings, today the well touted names come into form. Yadier Alvarez and Ian Happ both had star power outtings that are well worth the prospect of the day touting. Though the single hit for Ian Happ is normally not the line you see he played well across all aspects of the game. Joey Wentz and Rhys Hosking both creep into the notable players for the first time this year.

Yadier Alvarez

4 innings pitched- 2 hits allowed- 0 runs allowed- 7 strikeouts

Baseball Rank’s #2 Dodgers prospect, RHP Yadier Alvarez, tossed 4 scoreless innings on Thursday. The Dodgers have been extremely conservative with Alvarez ever since they have acquired him and that trend has continued to begin 2017. Alvarez’ first start he went 2.1 innings, then the next one was 3.2 innings, and on Thursday he stretched out to 4 innings. Alvarez did make the most of the 4 innings nonetheless. Alvarez was perfect the first 2 innings, striking out 3 in the process. He would let up a single and a walk in the 3rd, but nothing more than that. His fourth and final inning saw no trouble either as the only blemish was a standalone single. Alvarez threw 65 pitches in the 4 innings and the Dodgers hooked him as he seems to be on an extremely strict limit.

Alvarez defected from Cuba a few years ago and signed with the Dodgers in 2015-16 international signing period. Alvarez has a fastball that has been clocked at triple-digits and a biting mid-80s slider to complement it well in addition to a couple other secondary pitches that have plus potential. Alvarez only pitched 60 innings all of last year and the Dodgers are being very cautious with the 21-year-old Cuban. He is slowly starting to get stretched out this year and it would not surprise me to see his next start go about 5 innings.

Top Prospects Of The Day

Matt Carpenter hit a walk off grand slam and drove in 5 in the opening game and reached base twice and drove in another run in the night cap to help the Cardinals sweep a double header against Toronto, 8-4 and 6-4.

Francisco Lindor hit a come from behind 2 run homer that gave Cleveland a 4-3 lead over the Astros that they would hold.

Taijuan Walker struck out 11 Padres in 8 innings, allowing 4 hits and 2 runs, earning the 6-2 decision for Arizona.

Masahiro Tanaka threw a complete game 3 hit shutout against the Red Sox as the Yankees swept, 3-0.

Daily Matchups for 4/27/2017

Pitchers To Target:

Noah Syndergaard- After having his start moved from Weds to Thurs, he still makes the top play on the day against a Braves’ team that he has had success against in the past. Thor is coming off a great performance against the Phillies (7 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 10 Ks and 114 pitches.) With that amount of pitches it would appear that his fingernail/blister issue is behind him. Hopefully the Mets’ offense can give him the run support that will allow him to get his 2nd win of the season.

Career vs Current Braves Roster

AVG: 0.279 [19 for 68], BABIP: 0.360, K%: 25.0, BB%: 6.6
FIP: 2.58 Strikeout: 19 Single: 16Groundout: 12 Flyout: 8 Walk: 5Pop Out: 4 Lineout: 4 Forceout: 2Sac Fly: 2 Triple: 1 Double: 1 Hit By Pitch: 1 Home Run: 1

Justin Verlander- This could be a very iffy pick but if it plays out you’ll be ahead of the pack. People might take a look at see that Verlander is 1-2 with a 6.04 ERA but he’s got a great match-up against a Mariners team that is in last place and has had trouble to score runs this season. He makes a great SP2 or a GPP pitcher.

Career vs Current Mariners Roster

AVG: 0.245 [37 for 151], BABIP: 0.290, K%: 24.1, BB%: 7.2
FIP: 4.09 Strikeout: 40 Flyout: 29Groundout: 20 Single: 20 Walk: 12Pop Out: 9 Double: 9 Lineout: 8Home Run: 6 Forceout: 2Grounded Into DP: 2 Triple: 2 Field Error: 2 Fielders Choice Out: 1 Sac Bunt: 1 Hit By Pitch: 1 Sac Fly: 1Bunt Pop Out: 1

Corey Kluber- Kluber is coming off back to back wins against the White Sox and the Tigers. In his last start he pitched 9 innings, gave up only 3 hits and struck out 9  while inducing 11 ground balls. In his start against the Tigers he actually gave up 6 runs but still got the win. His ERA is sitting at 4.28 but he should be good to go against an Astros team that he has had success against in the past.

Career vs Current Astros Roster

AVG: 0.206 [20 for 97], BABIP: 0.265, K%: 26.5, BB%: 4.9
FIP: 2.68 Strikeout: 27 Groundout:23 Single: 12 Flyout: 12 Walk: 5Double: 5 Pop Out: 5 Lineout: 5Forceout: 3 Home Run: 2Grounded Into DP: 2 Triple: 1

Other Pitchers: Masahiro Tanaka, Julio Urias, Gio Gonzalez (GPP)

Ian Kinsler went 4 for 5 with 2 RBI and 4 runs scored as the Tigers clobbered Seattle, 19-9.

Clayton Kershaw pitched 7 strong innings, striking out 7 Giants, allowing 1 run and 1 walk to give the Dodgers a 2-1 victory.

Dallas Keuchel went the distance, working out of jams throughout the game as the Astros topped Cleveland, 4-2.

Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Trea Turner, April 25, 2017 )

Screen Shot 2017-04-25 at 11.10.17 PM

Another day, another cycle hit at Coors!

OK, maybe Coors is designed for having guys hit for the Cycle. That isn’t to take away from Trea Turner’s remarkable 7 RBI night for the Nationals. It just seems like they come in bunches at Coors where the thin air allows more homers and the big dimensions to keep balls in the yard lead to triples.

Ah well, why rain on Trea’s parade?

This Isn’t The Kind of Performance Kevin Gausman Had in Mind

Fresh off having one of the more disappointing starting rotations in baseball last year, the Baltimore Orioles didn’t do much to change this group in 2017.

Instead, they were hoping their young hurlers would take another step forward to lead the unit as a whole. That included Kevin Gausman, who parlayed a strong second half and impressive performance during Spring Training into an Opening Day start against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The thing is, his strong showing after the 2016 All-Star break hasn’t exactly carried over into this year.

Through 24 innings of work (five starts), the right-hander has posted a 1-2 record with an unsightly 7.50 ERA and 2.04 WHIP. Those looking for some solace in his peripheral numbers won’t find it, with a FIP (5.65), xFIP (5.51) and SIERA (5.39) all north of 5.00.

The Orioles need him to pitch like an ace this year, but he’s done the complete opposite. What’s going on?

Top Prospects Of The Day: Christian Arroyo Called Up To The San Francisco Giants

For different reasons than you’re typically used to seeing on here, Christian Arroyo has just made the list! Off to a blistering start this season – unlike his parent club – Arroyo has slashed .446/.478/.692 in 65 Triple-A at-bats this year despite being just 21-years old in the class. His promotion to San Francisco is likely to be nothing more than a first taste, filling the role of shortstop while regular Brandon Crawford is added to the bereavement list, but it’s a tip of the hat to the type of start he’s gotten off to.
This season was Arroyo’s debut in Triple-A Sacramento and he’s certainly made the most of it. Even though he’s never walked much, he makes a ton of solid contact and might even be adding a greater element of power to his game, having already hit three this season despite never hitting more than nine in a single campaign.

Arroyo’s glove is pretty capable, too, but profiles more so as a fill-in shortstop but is totally going to be able to manage big-league time on the regular at second and even third.

On Twitter, Arroyo posted that his mom didn’t believe he was telling her the truth when he said he’d been promoted. Maybe a Tuesday night debut in San Francisco will provide the proof she needs.

This would have been my 6th selection, and I may still yet throw down $15 on this odds, with a 40/1 odd, and an early Adam Wainwright injury, this is good value.

Daily Matchups for 4/24/2017

Pitchers To Target:

Zack Greinke- It’s not too often lately that we would suggest using Greinke but I actually like this match-up against Jhoulys Chacin and the Padres. The only downfall here is it’s in Coors Jr. (Chase Field) instead of Petco Park. Greinke faced these same Padres in his last start and the results are pretty damn good. 8 IP, 5 H, 1 BB, 6 SO, 1 ER, 1 QSTART and 43 FP.

Career vs Current Padres Roster

AVG: 0.225 [32 for 142], BABIP: 0.264, K%: 21.3, BB%: 5.2
FIP: 3.12 Strikeout: 32Groundout: 23 Flyout: 22Single: 19 Lineout: 11 Double:10 Pop Out: 9 Walk: 8Grounded Into DP: 4 Sac Bunt:3 Home Run: 3 Bunt Groundout: 3 Forceout: 2Fielders Choice Out: 2Strikeout – DP: 1 Hit By Pitch: 1Field Error: 1 Sac Fly: 1

Jason Vargas- I have absolutely no idea how Jason Vargas is doing what he is doing but he’s so far 3-0 with a .44 (!!!!) ERA and still only $8,500 on Fanduel. He’s had back to back amazing starts where he had 9 Ks, and 8 Ks to go along with 58 FP and 57 FP. He’s got a great match-up tonight against a very shaky White Sox offense and while although his numbers aren’t the very best against him, he’s been pitching way above his numbers. He’s gotta come back down to earth eventually but I’m not too sure that tonight is that night.

Career vs Current White Sox Roster

AVG: 0.283 [13 for 46], BABIP: 0.324, K%: 20.0, BB%: 8.0

Prospects of the Day: Lamet K’s 13 in Impressive Outing

Thursday saw some impressive pitching outings from some prospects who are not that high on many lists. Pitchers such as Dinelson Lamet, Lucas Sims, and Nick Pivetta are all prospects who have not been talked about a ton, but pitched gems on Thursday. Baseball’s top prospect, Yoan Moncada, continued his hot start.

Dinelson Lamet

5.1 Innings Pitched- 13 strikeouts- 3 hits- 3 walks

Dinelson Lamet, one of the Padres’ top prospects, was dealing on Thursday night. Lamet started the night off strong, striking out 2 batters in each of the first 3 innings. He then upped his game and struck out the side in the 4th inning increasing his total to 9 strikeouts through 4 innings pitched. The beginning of the top of the 5th he found himself giving up a walk and a single to begin the inning, but quickly got out of trouble by striking out three in a row. Lamet would give up a home run to Gordon Beckham to begin the 5th inning and would be pulled in the 5th after a few more batters. All said and done, not too shabby of an outing for Lamet, tallying 13 strikeouts over only 5.1 innings pitched.
