Jose Siri is locked in, not just because he’s found a way to avoid iPhone jokes for a majority of the season, but because lately Siri has the answer. What? You didn’t think I’d go there? It’s like you hardly know me. (BASEBALL FOCUS.) Not since Francisco Mejia’s 50 game hit streak have we had a streak so epic. So not since last year, and even that, meh not really true. Regardless Reds outfield prospect Jose Siri is in the midst of a 34 game hitting streak, one that’s raised his average to .299, and left him with the very healthy slashline of .299/.343/.541. Siri has never been much of a contact guy, and has fallen into the power/speed upside camp. So far in 2017 the strikeouts are way down, the walks are up, the average is up, and the homers and steals have nearly doubled! So things are going good for Siri. Here’s a look at Siri cranking a homer against South Bend earlier this season.

He is however, still only a depth prospect in most dynasty formats. Despite recent success, he’s had a history of swinging and missing, inconsistency with his approach, and some off the field concerns. Despite all that, a high upside low minor player remains, and one that might be worth a speculative grab in 16+ team leagues. At 22 he’s old for A ball, and he could use a promotion to high A to really put this breakout to the test. No matter the details the streak pushes on… Here’s the rest of the happenings in MiLB.

  • It’s the best time of the year, other than the other 3-5 times I say it’s the best time of the year. Seriously though I love the silly season, because, I more often than not, am in the know on these players that are being traded for stars and vets. Changing organizations, and the opportunity that comes along with it, adds a fun wrinkle to prospecting.
  • Jose De Leon has been on a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League ramping up his workload in the process. He struck out 8 over 4 innings his last go round, and 4 over 5 this time out. He should be back in Durham, and then up to Tampa in short order.
  • Anyone remember Ramon Laureano? He was a big deal coming into the season after a great 2016, and rave reviews during last year’s Arizona Fall League. He’s really struggled against righties this year, hitting .202 against them. After rocking averages of .202 in April, .188 in May, and .206 in June, Laureano is hitting .286 in July and might just be turning it on again. He’s in a loaded Astros organization, and looks like the kind of high upside expendable piece that could be a kicker in a deal.
  • On Friday night top Reds prospect Nick Senzel collected his first four hit game in AA while homering and doubling for Pensacola. In 32 AA games Senzel is slashing .331/.386/.521 with 4 homers. The third baseman will approach 22-25 homers in the majors at peak, but is an absolute doubles machine, hitting 35 already this season. If you play in a slashline league, Senzel will be of more value.
  • The Braves promoted 20 year old lefty pitching prospect Luiz Gohara to AAA this week, and he proceeded to get a little roughed up. He did strike out 5 over 4 1/3rd and is extremely young for the level. We discussed Gohara on the podcast yesterday, and I love the fastball-slider combo with his ability to command both, as well as a fringy change.
  • After getting roughed up in his last few go rounds since returning from the DL Brandon Woodruff pitched 5 scoreless innings for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox last night striking out 6 in the process. After injuring himself minutes prior to his MLB debut the righty is on the shortlist for a callup to Milwaukee.
  • Last night Indians righthander Shao-Ching Chiang ended a two month losing streak pitching a nine-inning no hitter for High A Lynchburg. He saw just two batters over the minimum, walking one, while the other baserunner reached on a throwing error. Chiang isn’t a very exciting prospect for fantasy outside of very deep formats. His bread and butter is control and weak groundball contact only striking out batters at a 15% clip.
  • After earning PCL player of the month honors for the month of July the Rockies Ryan McMahon celebrated in style going 3 for 4 last night and finishing a triple short of the cycle. I went into full on add alert in all RCLs this week when Ian Desmond went down with yet another injury, but alas Ryan McMahon did not get the call. If he’s not traded in the coming days McMahon could end up an August callup that could help fantasy teams down the stretch. The question remains however, where does he find consistent at bats in Denver?
  • The new top prospect in the game (updated rankings coming in August – September) Ronald Acuna had another game last night going 4 for 5, with a homer, a double, an RBI, and 3 runs scored. He’s now slashing .318/.400/.606 with 4 homers and a couple of steals in 17 games at AAA, and has absolutely no split issues (.300/.321). Far be it from me to poo-poo an aggressive Atlanta promotion but Ozzie Albies reached AAA at 19 and he’s been there for a year plus. Don’t bank on an Acuna callup, though it’s not out of the realm of possibility, particularly in September.
  • We might be mere days away from the debuts of Mets prospects Dominic Smith and Amed Rosario…(3) then again, maybe not. It is after all the Mets we’re discussing here. Either way, both were in action last night as Smith went 2 for 3, with a walk, and an RBI, while Rosario went 0 for 3 with a walk and 2 K’s. Each has been knocking on the door all season maintaining superb batting averages, .341 for Smith, and .329 for Rosario. Each should hit at the next level eventually, if not immediately.
  • You know I can’t go a post without bringing up one of Preller’s Diaper Dandies right? Well this week, we’re talking Adrian Morejon’s A ball debut, as the lefty went 5 strong, allowing one run on 5 hits, and a walk. Quite an impressive performance by an 18 year old starter for a full season squad. During his time with the Tri-City Devils of the Northwest League, Morejon flashed brilliant command and control with the ability to miss bats, and drive weak contact. As this rate we might be watching a future ace develop before our eyes. I’m such a Padres homer.
  • Speaking of Padres pitching prospects Anderson Espinoza is having Tommy John, meaning he’s going to be out another year after not seeing any action since last August. Espinoza should be dropped to back end of most fantasy Top 100’s for the next year.
  • Future boring major leaguer Jeimer Candelario homered twice yesterday for his father’s birthday, you can find this touching story on Cut4 I’m sure. Sorry just throwing some chum to the Crabs. Anywho, Candelario looks like a league average 3rd baseman with 17-20 homer pop, and a .270 average. Good depth in a deep league but that’s about it.
  • Big game for Tigers pitching prospect Beau Burrows on Thursday, as he struckout 10 across 5 frames. He’s been steadily improving since a rough initial promotion to AA. He’s one of the few bright spots in a rather abysmal Tigers system.
  • The homie Brandon Marsh was back in action for Orem, after missing every game since I wrote my glowing Dynasty Stock Watch post on him. Not to worry cause Marshie came through with a homer for all the Marsh-a-maniacs throughout the world. He’s now 3 for 6 since returning to action on Friday night. BUY! BUY! BUY!

    Thx for the update!

    Monte Harrison was dropped in my league (20 milb players each). Was looking closely at him and in 100 PA’s a Carolina he’s got 5 HR and 6 SB’s. the AvG is a struggle thus far, but the BABIP is low compared to career and the ISO has held around .210.

    He’s not very high on any lists, and I know injuries had a lot to do with that….but a combined 2017 in 368 PA’s of 16 HR and 18 SB and a future hitters haven makes me think maybe he can be what we wanted Keon Broxton to be? What say you? Worth a shot?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Stewzilla: I think he’d be lucky to be Keon Broxton, Broxton’s average stinks but he’s still 14/17 this year, and walks a fair amount. I think they’re similar.

  3. Jason says:
    (link)

    Not a prospect-related question, but are you worried about Mazara in a dynasty league? I know you were high on him a year ago, but given a year-and-a-half of struggles, do you think he’s still got Top 20 OF upside?

    • Sport says:
      (link)

      @Jason: I like this question, and would like to throw David Dahl into it please.

      • Ralph Lifshitz

        Ralph Lifshitz says:
        (link)

        @Sport: Dahl is a matter of staying on the field and staying in Colorado. I just traded for him in a league where I’m building. I think he’s a good buy low if you can take on the risk. Top 20 OF upside.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Jason: No not to worries, even with the struggles he’s been productive when you factor in age. Yes I still think he has top 20 upside. Maybe as early as next year.

    RP (room for 6) vincent (3.2 2018), gregerson (5.2 2018)
    DL n.jones (5.348 2018)
    prospects (of some note, the others could be dropped when need be, max 35 spots, all of which are free and if they were up right today would have .4 till end of 2020 contracts):
    C okey
    CI w.craig, denton, lavalley, padlo, e.rios
    MI demeritte, p.gonzalez (OF now i think you’ve said), a.a. tejeda, a.rondon
    OF cozens, dj davis, v.garcia, kirilloff (who i drafted AHEAD of acuna, not having a mixed list of 1st year guys last year with big movers from 2016 season, this should be remedied this offseason), sierra, tocci, g.whitley
    SP r.lopez, kilome, diplan, b.martin, a.smith, r.yarbrough, v.alcantara,
    RP staumont, sherfy, m.cabrera, m.ynoa, rj alvarez

    trying to move beltre and/or reynolds for pick(s), prospect(s). got 2 teams offering
    1. 3rd rounder and i take some junky rental contracts for reynolds and he has these prospects (i’d either get one better pick than 3rd, or the 3rd and prospect(s) or 2 picks):
    trammel/erceg/j.reyes (BAL)/almanzar/i.soto (MIA)/wilk garcia (NYY)/vlad gutierrez (CIN), zeuch. the picks in play would be a crappy 2nd rounder (about 20th in that round), good 3rd rounder (5th or so) or middle 3rd rounder. i’d only get a mix of this (pick/prospect together) if he gets both beltre/reynolds.
    my team is doing the best it ever has (5th now, most of year 5-6th, never higher than 9-11th in a season), BUT we turn from roto to h2h league for september and by far the best team is in my division. seeing which of these worth attempting in this. my guess is he rules out the 3 that make your top 200 (trammel (big gap) – almanzar – vlad g (CIN)), seeing how these others rack up.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: a 2nd owner has these to offer (he only is interested in beltre so it wouldn’t be with a pick probably): j.gregorio SF, strahm, faygo vieira (different spelling but the soda so), b.mata (BOS), dalbec (maybe ockimey he has both), he has both)

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: took the offer of
        my mini donkey + beltre (both rentals and i’m tagging alonso/segura/sale)
        for
        a-gon (18 mil, i cut and eat 9 mil)
        diekman (drop for small loss, no DL room)
        annabelle SP (cheap enough to not eat anything if i cut)
        trammell
        good 3rd rounder (we have 6 rounds now up from 5)
        not only was this owner ok with one of trammel/vlad g (CIN)/almanzar he’s probably the ONLY owner willing to give any top 100 guy. i’ve seen guys like beltre (productive, but old man rentals) go for 5th rounders alone in the past.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: just noticed trammel went at 2.20 in this year’s draft, ONE pick after i went w.craig.

            @goodfold2: Damn, like the Trammell grab. Yeah Craig hasn’t been what we thought he might be. Power hasn’t translated at all.

            • goodfold2 says:
              (link)

              @Ralph Lifshitz: after putting together 2 pieces of info
              1. earlier this week a batshit expensive trade went down for verdugo (who i looked up whatever crazy level he is at MLB.com’s lists it’s from his defensive tools, not his fantasy tools)
              verdugo
              for
              erceg
              t.pham (3 mil per 2019)
              2nd rounder (really good one)
              6th rounder (really good one)

              2. then my trammel and good 3rd rounder for rental values and cost cutting.
              holy F’ing shit. the same guy who got that haul for verdugo gave me a guy you have nearly identically valued, amazing what a market bears.
              MLB.com’s own lists have verdugo 28th overall with a line of (60/50/50) but trammel 78th with a (50/50/70). so a positive 10 pts of batting average and a negative -20 of speed is worth 50 SPOTS!

              • Ralph Lifshitz

                Ralph Lifshitz says:
                (link)

                @goodfold2: Yeah I think long term Trammell is a much better fantasy prospect. Good work!

                • goodfold2 says:
                  (link)

                  @Ralph Lifshitz: they’re two spots off on your list, but the fact that we can even talk about them as if they are close makes mlb.com’s list silly. it does make for over/under estimations for a lot of owners though for sure. i’m quite sure if i shopped trammel nobody in this league would give me near that verdugo haul. the guy i made this trade with for the future is probably the best team (his prospects he ruled out better than trammel were about 6 or 7 guys), and a top 5 team right now.

                  • Ralph Lifshitz

                    Ralph Lifshitz says:
                    (link)

                    @goodfold2: Yeah they’re close on my list but very different types of players. Trammell has the ability to develop into a top 25 guy within a year, while Verdugo is close to the majors and safe. Lot more upside with T2

                    • goodfold2 says:
                      (link)

                      @Ralph Lifshitz: some guys that are doing well for me a lot just this year (better than expected for sure) were 2nd rounders or later in rosario/altherr. and next january with the help of these top 200 (and at end of season i’ll go backwards from most recent post and write down any other unowned names) i won’t have that ugly kiriloff (pre injury) over acuna issues of last year when i didn’t have the list of up and comers to compare to the 1st year player rankings list. so far your top 200 there are enough names to fill out my entire 1st round (about 37 names or so not owned): biggest guys who could’ve been previously drafted by me (and were listed by me at the time): y.alvarez, arozarena, hays. all names on top 100 ahead of alvarez (only 10 names) aren’t owned only from not being draftable until 2018 january (i’m including otani)

    Is AJ Reed still a viable prospect to track in keeper and dynasty leagues, or is the shine off?

    As always, love the work Ralph… In the midst of a rebuild in a keeper league with Moncada, Calhoun, Meadows, D. Smith, and Alex Reyes to go with Thor, C-Mart, Arenado, T Turner, Sanchez, and C Seager. Your work has been helpful.

    Hey Ralph
    quick trade question
    I get Harper
    the other guy wants trea turner,Clint Frazier and Devers
    its a keeper league
    I want to counter with Frazier, Devers and Berrios
    what do you think
    or can try and counter with
    Reynolds, Berrios, Devers or Frazier

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @glory daze: I’d try the later, but if you’re looking to consolidate for a talent like Harper I’d do the first deal after options were exhausted.

      • Daze says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz:
        The only problem is Harper would cost $43 next year to keep. Which I think is too much
        Turner and everyone else are keepers for 2 more years.
        Would you still make that deal

    Had a busy schedule lately and haven’t been commenting but still reading all your stuff! It keeps getting better and better.

    Where do you think Marsh gets ranked on your list in September?

    I was hoping for Kingery and Christin Stewart call ups after trades but it sounds like they both might be middle summer 2018?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Sport: Thanks a lot man!

      I’m not sure he’ll move much, I really was aggressive with his rank at 62. I could see him breaking the top 50 of he goes off from now until the end of the year.

      Sounds like they’re holding both down at least until later in September.

    We play 2 guys at each position, so at !B I have Goldy and Healy. This is a 12 team dynasty keep all. I have Hoskins as one of my 4 reserves. Joseph is a FA. My drop would be Gyorko, or I could roster another 1B prospect. Can you give me a couple names that might be better than Joseph or can I look in another direction if you think Hoskins will produce in 2018? Getting another 1MB has been a thorn in my side. FWIW I had Bird.

      @Packers: I think Hoskins will produce in 2018. If you’re looking for a fourth 1B I say take a look at Ryan McMahon, Dom Smith, Bobby Bradley, Jake Bauers, Ronald Guzman, JD Davis.

    Hey Ralph,

    Good stuff yet again. Will keep an eye on Siri, and Beau Burrows is unowned in my dynasty too.

    It’s 12 team H2H. 7×7 (BB, XBH, HLDS, QS). 20 player milb farm team.

    Just traded Mancini and Carlos Gonzalez for Will Myers. Which has left an open spot on my Milb roster. Am assuming you’ll like that trade?

    My farm team is looking good (Acuna, Beuhler, Soto, Mejia, Stewart, McMahon, Senzel, Bader, Florial, Collins) and also has some players who have been promoted that I don’t need to promote yet ( Gsellman, Matt Chapman, Sam Travis, Tom Murphy, David Paulino). However the farm team also has some prospects who are not panning out the way I hoped (Sedlock, Fried).

    Most of the farm team,has been built on your advice, thanks very much, your advice has bee fitted me greatly and part of the reason I have Benintendi, Bellinger, Trout and Myers at OF in that league.

    Am thinking of adding three of (filling empty space, dropping Sedlock and Fried) Shed Long, Brandon Marsh, Colton Welker, Ryan Mountcastle, Yordan Alvarez, Nick Neidert, Michael Baez.

    A) add them in that order?
    B) drop any of Paulino, Sam Travis, Gsellman to add any of the others ?
    C)
    D) worried at all that my prospects are mainly batters ? If I am to roster a SP on my Milb team, I would prefer one with real upside.

    Appologies for the novel.

    Best wishes,

    Dan

              @Swfcdan:

              Scarborough. The Owls U23 team are visiting Scarborough next Saturday. Assuming you are Sheffield based.

              How do you watch your baseball ? I have BT sport and watch whichever games they choose. Tried using Kodi every now and again, it’s a bit hit and miss.

              Best wishes,

              Dan

    Good stuff as always!

    Has Acuna’s performance this year leapfrogged him over Robles, or at least have them in the same conversation for top OF prospect?

    I’ve been offered Posey for Robles in a 2-catcher, H2H 12-team dynasty (I currently start Pina/Ramos), but I also have Acuna, Bader, Tapia, Verdugo, Weaver, Mahle and Duplantier on my minor league roster. I’m in 3rd place right now, top 6 make playoffs.

    I also have a young OF, rostering Trout, Betts, Ozuna, Pham and Inciarte, as well as Bryant and Taylor who are eligible.

    I think it’s unquestionably an overpay, but we’re right at the trade deadline and Ramos has scuffled since he’s been back…also feel that it almost make sense to overpay for a good catcher given how shitty most have been?

    What do you think?

      @Jay: Yes, I think Acuna is #1 right now.

      I’d hold off on that Posey deal personally, but I can see it’s appeal. He’s old in catcher years, they age like dogs.

      Seems like a steep price with a large probability of blowing up on you.

    This may be a dumb question, but would you rather roster castellanos or McMahon at this point? The former seems more and more like he is destined to be a huge tease, and what we have seen for three years may just be who he is. At least there is some question about McMahon…keep waiting for him to stop hitting almost 400 and it doesn’t happen.

      @Oddball Herrera: I’m still leaning Castellanos. I see your point though.

  17. Hey Ralph, I’m in the hunt, so would love your thoughts on this potential deal. We get to keep 2 pitchers, and I’ve already got Kluber and deGrom. I think I can trade Severino and Drury for Odor and Nola. How big a downgrade is it from Severino to Nola, especially given that there may be an innings limit on Sev this fall? Would love your thoughts. All of the front-runners are making mad deals, so I need a second opinion on whether the deals I’m considering are worth it.

      @Milarky: It’s a step down but Odor from Drury is prolly a step up, as long as he’s not butt cheeks in batting average again. Gotta be 5×5 roto though. If it’s an OBP league I’m all set.

    Hey Ralph

    I’ve got a trade offer of Aroldis Chapman for Mitch Keller and Mike Soroka. Its a 20 team Dynasty league with deep minor league rosters.

    What do you think about this? Thanks!

      @Bawits: I like the Keller and Soroka side
