Every day I post a Twitter thread breaking down a snapshot of the fantasy baseball market. This is just a recap of the previous week. Data may have changed but the overall trends may still hold true. We all need a little advice from time to time and the FBB MarketWatch wrap-up may hold a nugget that leads to you making your decision to move on or even acquire a player.
C.J. Cron (UP!)
What a week (5 games) Mr. Cron had last week. 10/18 (.556 BA), 4 HR, 25 runs+RBI, 1.5 BB/K & 363 wRC+. Absolute silliness. Hopefully you had him in your lineup. Season long metrics are actually pretty good. .373 xwOBA, 39% HardHit rate & 114.7 maxEV. If you need to add some pop you could do a lot worse than C.J. Cron.
Luis Gil (UP)
Made 2 impressive starts last week. 11 IP, 0 ER & 14 K. Avg 14.5 WHIFFs & 33% CSW. Mostly missing bats with his FB & SL. Had a 4.14 ERA in AA & AAA but struck out more than 12 per 9. Control/command is important indicator for his future success. A guy with his prospect pedigree, I’m looking to bring him aboard.
Dylan Cease (UP!!)
Back2back outings w/ 10+ K. Now rocks an 11.96 K/9, 30.8 K% & 21.3 K-BB rate on the season. About a 45% WHIFF rate on SL, CH & CB! Even though his FB gets hit hard more than 40% of the time, it is still an effective offering (-5 pVAL). 3.64 SIERA is good to see for Cease. If the team builder in your league that rosters Cease is skeptical, try and buy the righty.
Reid Detmers (DOWN)
Has yet to find success in 1st 2 GS. 11 ER in 9.1 IP. Did face 2 tough really tough opponents however (LAD & OAK). In Sunday’s outing he had 15 WHIFFs (30% CSW) which is encouraging. His CB is a plus pitch so far (-2 pVAL). 4sFB is getting crushed though. Giving up a .438 BA, .562 wOBA & 53.3% HardHit rate. He is leaving it over the middle far too often. Easy to see with his pitch maps. He will probably be in back on your waiver wire shortly, I’d leave him there but monitor his next start.
