I would call fantasy baseball sleepers my “All-Want Team,” except it’s not always that black/white for Grey, said the color scale.  David Peralta was a surefire “Want” last year; this year, he’s a “Want for the Right Price.”  Peralta had three homers and two steals through the first five weeks of the season.  That comes out to about 16 HRs, 11 SBs over the course of the season.  It’s not a completely fair prorating job because he wasn’t hot once in that time.  You’d figure for at least a portion of the season he’d heat up and raise his season stats.  Though, maybe he would’ve gotten colder too.  Alas, we’re left with prorating five weeks out to a season because on May 8th began the dreaded Day-to-Day Dance of Day-to-Dayness.  Injury update on May 8th, “David Peralta is out with a bruised forearm.”  On May 9th, “David Peralta missed his 2nd straight day with a bruised forearm.”  On May 10th, “Peralta visited a wrist specialist.” Don’t you love how the injury isn’t even the right body part when it starts?  On May 12th, “Peralta’s wrist exam showed no structural damage.”  Wait, this is when it gets good.  On May 13th, “Peralta says he won’t need the DL.”  Does anyone have any question how this is about to turn out?  On May 15th, “Peralta hit the 15-day DL with wrist inflammation.  It’s believed to be precautionary.”  Please tell me you know where this is going.  On August 10th, “Peralta underwent season-ending wrist surgery.”  The final bit of injury news is, “Peralta will be ready for the start of spring training.”  I guess I’m the idiot here, because I know injury news is always five to seven times worse (exact science!) than what is relayed to us and I’m choosing to believe he will be ready for spring training, even though his previous eight months is littered with land mines on the dance floor of the Day-to-Day Dance of Day-to-Dayness.  So, what can we expect from David Peralta for 2017 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

He’s not even being drafted.  He’s being written off in just about all leagues.  You can have him for next-to-nothing in an NL-Only league, so he’s a sleeper everywhere.  He’s penciled in to the cleanup spot in Chase Field, right after Pollock, Lamb and Goldy.  Maybe that changes, but Peralta’s left-handed bat plays well exactly there in the lineup.  I’d put the chances of him falling much further than the five-hole as about as likely as him ending up hitting 2nd and Lamb moving to five.  The D-Bags have only so many places to bat a true left-handed bat — 2nd or 5th seems about right.  As for his power, he hit 17 homers in 2015, and looked to be on his way to that figure again last year.  I think he gets there no problem, but with the possibility for more.  He upped his fly ball rate and was having a bit of bad luck with his HR/FB% through the five weeks last year.  He had a 28.5% fly ball rate, if he had continued that, he would’ve hit 103 fly balls, and if he would’ve heated up and got back to 17% HR/FB rate he had the year before, he would’ve hit 18 homers.  Obviously that’s not a huge uptick from 17 HRs, but it shows he can hit 17 HRs again.  Alone, that’s nothing, but he has 10-steal speed and a .292 hitter in 285 career games in one of the best parks in the middle of a solid top five.  Again, this isn’t “David Peralta, yay!”  This is “David Peralta, can’t get a much cheaper sleeper in even the deepest of leagues.”  Frugality isn’t sexy, or at least I like to think it’s not sexy because frugality reminds me of my grandmother — shudders — but Peralta’s one of the best sleepers due to his low, low price of nothing.  For 2017, I’ll give David Peralta projections of 73/18/85/.289/9 with a chance for a wee more, said the leprechaun.

    Grey!

    Great write-up as always!

    a. Greetings from Punta Cana, DR!! All went well with the travel.

    b. I jimmy-jammed up the almost 0-pressure toilet in one sitting so there’s that. The local yokel came to fix it and I didn’t tip him. Next time he’ll prolly take his sweet time! Sigh! Actually, on the immigration form they ask profession. I was going to write ‘Professional toilet jammer’, but then better just write ‘UN bureaucrat’.

    c. Peralta should be good, hopefully as good as his TV brother from Brooklyn’s 99th precinct – aka Jake Peralta. 20HRs and 90+RBIs from 140 GP should be fantastic on top of whatever you scrape off the waiver wire.

    Cheers,
    Ante

    WANT. And probably more than you. I’m thinking he’s an OF3-4 on my board. in the 90-120 OF range, I expect. I haven’t really had a chance to finish my eval to that depth for next year with FA still in play, but he should be a great value pick this year no matter what. The one thing you eluded to but didn’t really hit home in this write up is his consistency. Even in his lulls, he’s usually keeping the OBP over .250. That’s good for a guy like this that has a propensity to have streaky weeks.

    I was away from the “Fantasy Baseball Dark Web” (which is what my co-worker refers to this site as since I introduced him to it…) for the holidays, so I missed the Joc Pederson post… it reminded me of last year’s Joc Pederson post…
    http://razzball.com/joc-pederson-2016-fantasy-sleeper/
    Check out our sweet argument in the comments Grey! I was totally wrong, he wasn’t a 4 steal guy… he was a 6 steal guy! AJ Pollock was brought up… such a sore subject this year…

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @CMUTimmah: 90 -120 hitter range* not OF range. i don’t think he’s a 4th OF in the entire MLB, lol

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: The excitement for Peralta from everyone is starting to scare me… He’s definitely a $0 guy… Might end up a $8 guy next year

    I’m in a 12-team H2H dynasty “keep forever” league.

    The scoring categories are:

    R H HR RBI SB BB K AVG OPS TB and IP K/9 K/BB HR W QS WHIP ERA

    Which side would you want for this season and the future? Is it close?

    Side A – Johnny Cueto / Hanley / JP Crawford
    Side B – Addy Russell / Porcello / M.Moore

    • Jason says:

      @Jason:
      In addition, I’ve received this offer from another owner

      Side C – Cueto Hanley Hendricks
      Side D – TFrazier Felix Duffy Calhoun Conforto

      Which side would you want in a dynasty?

    • Grey

      @Jason: Cueto, not close

  6. Whatever says:

    Hi Grey,

    Was thinking of offering Carrasco/Judge for Cueto. Carrasco and Cueto would have the same salary next year.

    Thanks,

    Whatever

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Whatever: I’d take Carrasco side

  7. Mikey Mike says:

    Grey,

    Think Story for Freeman is close? I know you don’t love Freeman, not sure how much you love Story.

    I’m thinking that Freeman is top 20 and Story might be mid 30s? But in a keeper Story can close the gap?

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @Mikey Mike: In a keeper, they’re very close, prolly Story slightly above him

  8. Jason E. says:

    Thanks for the article. I really like these sleeper articles. I am coming out of hibernation and back to fantasy baseball! I received a trade offer last night in a keeper (6 player max) 16 teamer of:

    I Give: Harper, deGrom, and Bregman

    I Get: Machado and Cargo

    My 6 keepers would be: Machado, Hosmer, Story, Marte, and some combo of Salazar, Matz, Schoop, Maeda, Oh, Rodon, Jon Gray, or G. Richards. Would you make the above trade? I initially feel like I am giving a lot.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! I’d want Bryce/deGrom, but it’s close

      • Jason E. says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Ok, thank you! Do you think Salazar can put it all together this year?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          I do, yeah, if healthy

      • CMUTimmah says:
        (link)

        @Grey: @Grey: This guy wants to keep Bregman in a keep 6? I can only assume that if he’s a throw in… His team must be in bad shape…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, it’s aggressive

  9. Dan says:
    (link)

    Great article. Peralta is soneone I’ll be targeting and reaching.

    Keeper question. 5*5 weekly category head to head. Can keep 7. Draft position being equal, who do you prefer out of Abreu, Posey, and Chapman? Who do you like least?

    Also have an opportunity to keep Brantley in the last round but the above should be much safer. Agree?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Abreu, Posey, and Chapman, that order…. These guys are all safer than Brantley

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        @Grey: thanks Grey!

        Would it change your thought process if I could keep chapman in the 8th versus the 6th in Abreu/Posey?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Not really, they’re all good value… That would make my ranking Abreu, Chapman, Posey

          • Dan says:
            (link)

            @Grey:
            Thanks again. I’m torn on those three bigly. My five I am sure of are Myers in 18 and 1-4 stack of kershaw, Correa, springer, and Syndergaard. Leaning Abreu and Chapman, but Posey is a huge plus over the rest of the market. I’m anticipating Lucroy and Sanchez to be kept, at the least.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              No problem… They’re all close, and you can’t go wrong with any of them…. Really between Abreu and Chapman, depends what you think will be in the draft for you to get to replace each… If you can get Goldy, forget Abreu…. If you can get good closer, forget Chapman

              • Dan says:
                (link)

                @Grey:

                Hah funny you mention goldy. Worked on An 11th hour trade deadline deal that I ultimately declined of springer, Myers, and Salazar for goldy. In retrospect I would’ve been able to keep all of the above on that scenario.

                • Grey

                  Grey says:
                  (link)

                  That’s pretty close, prolly a bit much

  10. Big Odio says:
    (link)

    I love these kind of sleepers. The forgotten, the written off. Reminds me of my late round flyers post. Now to get peope to not reach will be the tricky part. I had Peralta penciled in too but I had him penciled twice. Once for being a great value at the right price point and again as someone I worried about because wrist injury recoveries can be scary (I own him in the razznasty) so please excuse my concerns. They are only there because I have decided to keep him.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yeah, wrist issues can be a problem, but less so at his price

      • Big Odio says:
        (link)

        @Grey: totes. It’s like buying a car with a rough idle. Could be an expensive fix like a valve or a cheap one like new spark plug wires.

    Morning Grey!

    Nice write up as always…

    1. My apologies if this has been asked, but what day does January Grey start releasing rankings?

    Potential Trade question for my keeper 6×6 with K/BB and OPS on yahoo standard (salary based with actual salary numbers and cap of $145 mil for 2017):

    2. I’m looking for a power OF bat that won’t kill in average. My target is JD Martinez (i think he will have a monster and hopefully injury free season on his contract year). I am an Alex Reyes owner… would you trade Alex for JD?

    We keep 12 players and draft 13… here’s what we’ve got so far:

    1b Abreu
    2b Peraza
    3b Arenado
    SS Villar
    OF Braun
    OF Desmond
    UTIL Beltre

    P Kershaw
    P Salazar
    P Walker
    P Reyes
    P Colome (3. could change this one to kipnis or duffy, what do you think?)

    4. Do you think Peraza will finally get his chance to play every day?

    Thank you in advance and happy new year to you and Cougs!

    – Big W

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. Jan 16th 2. I’d take JD 3. Don’t follow 4. Yes, but not at first… Thanks, man! You too!

      • Big W says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thank you Grey…

        for question #3, I have Colome penciled in as my 12th and final keeper, but alternatively I could keep SP Duffy or 2b Kipnis… Ideally if I could trade Kipnis and Colome for JD, that would be great, but doubt the JD owner would want to do that. He has Dozier and Betances + Chapman.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Oh, get JD

          • CMUTimmah says:
            (link)

            @Grey: He’s not getting JD if the guy is already keeping Dozier and doesn’t need a closer… but I would keep Kipnis over Colome when that doesn’t happen.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Makes sense

            • Big W says:
              (link)

              @CMUTimmah: Thanks for the input… just to clarify, I’m not offering him kipnis and Colome for JD… I said Ideally that would be nice, but I recognized he has no need for them… the offer is Alex Reyes for JD

              BUT, you did answer the part that Grey missed, and that was if I should keep kipnis or Duffy over Colome and Grey agreed with you there.

              Thanks all!

    Do you like Bregman 2017, is he top 50 player? Is he worth keeping over SP like Salazar or Duffy?

    Hi Grey,

    I’m doing a mini-rebuild in a keeper league. I’m wondering if I’m getting enough in return in this deal:

    I trade Hendricks Encarnacion Cueto
    I receive T.Frazier D.Duffy Ozuna Conforto and Calhoun or Felix

    The other team has Betts, Bryant, Trout, Arenado, Odor and is unwilling to include any of them

    Reject or good value?

    Seems like a “quantity over quality” kind of trade? Would

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Reject

      • CMUTimmah says:
        (link)

        @Grey: That’s not even a question, is it? Always want to have the best player in a trade, especially in an offseason. You are selling high on Hendricks, that’s fine, but you better get a packaging that isn’t a bunch of .250 hitters.

        If I’m that guy, I’m sitting on my Betts, Bryant, Trout, Arenado and Odor also. That guy has a great squad of 25 and under guys… with Trout being the old man of the lot!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, hear that

        • F.K.A. Ralph says:
          (link)

          @CMUTimmah: Just to be that guy — Arenado is actually older (4 months) than Trout! Bryant is just barely younger (4 months), too!

          Trout is probably the GOAT, and this is just another way of worshipping him :)

    Hey Grey!

    Still fielding some keeper league offers for my Kershaw . . . which side do you like in these? Any trade you like more than the others? I like the idea of keeping Kershaw so I don’t need to touch pitching until late, but would be happy to trade if the offer is heavily weighted in my favor.

    A. $30 Kershaw [dropping my $6 Khris and $10 Dahl to the FA pool] for $12 Degrom, $10 JD Mart, and one of $7 Buxton or $3 V-Mart

    B. $30 Kershaw [again dropping my $6 Khris and $10 Dahl to the FA pool] for $19 Strasburg, $10 JD Mart, $23 Blackmon.

    C. $30 Kershaw for $11 Carrasco and $10 JD Mart (dropping only Khris to the FA pool).

    Thanks as always.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Not one Frazier mention! I like them all, would take C and keep Dahl

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Phew! Though I’ll admit I’m trying for him in another non-Kershaw trade.

        Do you have any significant concerns about DeGrom’s health? I don’t really remember his issues last year, other than that he had some weird ones.

        In lieu of DeGrom, I might also be able to get all bats (JD, Blackmon, and another bat like a $12 Murphy $18 Freeman or $12 Hanley). Would that then become your favorite?

    Interesting trade for the Royals today. Peter O’Brien who screams at being a DH going to the AL. Roster resource currently has Soler as their DH but I doubt Dyson gets the everyday nod unless Cain gets moved. Which feels like a definite possibility by the break at the latest. He’s going to be a deep league grab for me. Also makes me wonder whats going on with Hunter Dozier. Either way O’Brien will be making my batty call short list

      Agreed, O’Brien should at least see 300+ ABs

      Not Matz or Gausman… If you like Matz, next to go would be Porcello

      • Make Baseball Great Again says:
        (link)

        @Grey: thanks man! I do like Matz… with Carrasco though, I’d have a pretty injury prone 2-3

    Just took a look at Tristan’s rankings at ESPN. They were updated on December 23. Thought you’d get a kick out of his 182 ranking of Franco.

      • SwaggerJackers says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yup, I read that post. That’s why I figured you’d appreciate how much he’s being buried in those early ESPN rankings. Sounds like an even better target now!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I figured they’d ignore him… Let me guess, Beltran is top 75?

          • swaggerjackers says:
            (link)

            @Grey: Lol, not quite. They have him at 156.

            Yelich @ 33

            Verlander 38

            Pedroia 90

            Aaron Sanchez outside the top 100

    this one’s weird. if you are on this page, which appears to be the best resource for culling prospect lists
    http://fantasyrundown.com/2017-mlb-prospect-rankings/

    and go down to this (search it)
    Prospect361.com 2017 MLB Prospect Rankings,
    then pick TB, you get a link to your keon broxton sleeper post. while i liked your broxton post, is there a reverse link hidden in the broxton post if i wanted to find a TB post?

  30. goodfold2 says:

    this is odd, for some reason this site, which culls together different places which have prospect lists
    http://fantasyrundown.com/2017-mlb-prospect-rankings/

    if you search: Prospect361.com 2017 MLB Prospect Rankings
    and hit TB’s list, you get taken to your keon broxton page. don’t get me wrong i liked your broxton page, but is there a hidden link in there for prospect361’s TB page?

    Taking Harper with the 12th overall pick in the first round as a keeper (last year as keeper) , but who to take with 15th pick overall in the mixed snake draft 6×6 roto: Encarnacion , Bogaerts, Cano , Votto, Springer, Murphy, Lindor, Abreu ?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Who else are you keeping?

      • JoeG414 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: only get to keep one hitter and one pitcher from last years draft spot. Keeping Arrieta as a 7th rounder, only get to keep them for two years after they are drafted. This is the last year for both, Arrieta is my best pitcher , I could keep Bogarets -3 or Odor – 5 . But, don’t think I can past up on Harper.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I like Springer

      • JoeG414 says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Would you take/ rate Blackman , T.Turner or Marte if they fall to me.
        Thanks .

    Hey Grey,

    Where do you see Mazara this year ? Got offered Quintana for him in my keep 11. My other pitchers to potentially keep are Matz, Harvey, Walker, Gausman (will likely keep 3 or 4 sp and 1 closer and Rizzo/Dozier/Correa/Crush/Trumbo/Dahl/Brinson)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I’d want Mazara

  35. JoeyBell says:

    Hey Grey — Let’s test your Springer love. Him, Villar, Story, or Votto for keeper league? Thanks!

    The current bid for Jankowski is a 5th round pick. Should I up the bid? If so how high should i go, or let him go?

    @Grey:

    10 Team Roto, $260 auction
    OBP instead of AVG, QS instead of W
    Keepers increase in price by $3 each year. Please pick 5:

    Villar ($4)
    Wil Myers ($8)
    Starling Marte ($13)
    Pollock ($12)
    Danny Duffy ($4)
    Herrera ($4)
    Jackie Bradley ($4)
    Napoli ($4)

    Not my strongest batch of keepers.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      No brainers: Villar ($4)
      Wil Myers ($8)
      Starling Marte ($13)
      Pollock ($12)

      Then you can go a few ways… Prolly just go Duffy

      • swaggerjackers says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Agreed. Another option I didn’t mention was Alex Reyes ($4). Maybe he’s the upside gamble for the 5th?

    Pitchers and catchers are packing their bags. 12 T Dynasty keep 8 forever no contracts. Was blessed with a plethora of talent only to sleep with the fishes, once the playoffs began. Oh well. Betts, Bryant and Rizzo are no brainers as part of my 8, but I gotta cut loose quite a few AllStars. Murphy, Lindor, Villar, Votto, Stanton, Pollock, Max, Carasco, not to mention Bregman, Dahl and Moncada. I need 5 of the aforementioned. 8 position players plus a DH. 6×6 OBP
