With 2B Jorge Mateo on the concussion list, Orioles 2B Connor Norby is the latest among Baltimore’s bevy of prospects to get his opportunity. It’s interesting to see him up instead of Jackson Holliday considering Norby is striking out 30.7 percent of the time in Triple-A, but he’s also slashing .286/.374/.510 through 238 plate appearances and struck out 21.6 percent of the time across 633 Triple-A plate appearances last year. Even with the increased strikeouts, his wRC+ has jumped from 109 last year to 127 this season.

Been a downbeat week around the fantasy game. Nobody likes to see a star like Ronald Acuña Jr. lose another season to injury. Baseball is just a tick less interesting today. For our game, there’s not much one can do to replace an Acuña. In a 15-teamer where I’ve gotten off to a fast start and am in first place, I traded Kodai Senga, Landon Knack and Abimelec Ortiz for Brandon Nimmo. He’s not going to approximate Acuña, but he should fill an outfield spot and help me hold down the Runs category. He’s batting third this season and is on pace for his best RBI season by a long ways, even as his batting average has tumbled. He’s painting the statcast bars red, and his career outcomes suggest he’s got upside in the batting average category. Now I just need to replace a few dozen stolen bases. No big deal, right?

As prospects in general have garnered increased hype over the past few fantasy-season cycles, the pool of post-hype prospects has also gotten deeper year over year. We turn the page in a hurry when a player struggles to capitalize on that first big chance, or that second big chance, or the third. Even the most patient players among us have to acknowledge reality after a while. We need these roster spots for the stats they can provide. Can’t just use our parents’ house as a free-rent incubator a la Erlich Bachman.

On the podcast the other day, I compared Jordan Westburg to Bo Bichette, and BDon stopped the podcast, called his job and told them he needed two years off to organize a music festival called, “Grey’s Finally Admitted About Overrating Bo-Chella.” At Bo-Chella, as it will be known colloquially, the headliners will be Jordan Westburg, […]
