Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Jose Altuve, Josh Beckett and a look around the league.
Jose Altuve can't be stopped, and Josh Beckett has exceeded expectations as well.

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Dustin Pedroia and a look around the league.
I’m a Dustin Pedroia fan and even proclaimed he’d be the top fantasy second baseman before this season, but he’s becoming tougher to back as an elite fantasy option. Here are his slugging percentages over the past five seasons, respectively: .493, .474, .449, .415 and .382. That’s trending in the wrong direction, I say. He [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Nelson Cruz, Adam Wainwright and a look around the league.
Nelson Cruz has always been an injury risk, but even with that aside, his .808 OPS over the previous three seasons ranked 59th in baseball despite playing in a home park that increased run scoring more than any in MLB other than Coors Field over that span. He currently leads the majors with 17 homers [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Mourning Jose Fernandez and a look around the league.
Francisco Liriano looked good during his outing in Milwaukee on Wednesday, but he has yet to win a game this year and has a 4.25 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP. This might be attributed to decreased velocity, as his average fastball has fallen from 93.0 mph last year to 92.0 this season, while his slider [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Slumping Sluggers and a look around the league.
As someone who recommended taking starting pitching early this year, Clayton Kershaw getting hurt and Stephen Strasburg currently sporting a 5.33 ERA sure hasn’t helped my case. But after those two, most have been as advertised (give or take). I’m in no way claiming victory with this strategy (and admittedly, I was high on Danny [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Yordano Ventura, Billy Hamilton and a look around the league.
Yordano Ventura keeps performing well, but his strikeouts have been way down since he missed a start with an arm injury.

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Joe Mauer, Max Scherzer and a look around the league.
Joe Mauer currently sports a career-high 27.8 LD% to go along with a career-high 2.80 GB/FB ratio and hasn’t hit one popup this season, yet his .344 BABIP (while still good) is actually below his career mark of .349. So while fantasy owners should be encouraged his .276 batting average will improve from here on [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Yasiel Puig and a look around the league.
Normally I’m guilty of overhyping young players, but I questioned Yasiel Puig’s high ADP entering 2014 because of his 1.63 GB/FB ratio, poor SB success rate (57.9%) and propensity to get hurt. I acknowledged a young player like Puig had plenty of room to improve in those areas, but it’s clear I was ultimately wrong. [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Yordano Ventura, Johnny Cueto and a look around the league.
Yordano Ventura is 22 years old, pitches in the American League and has a 2.00 ERA with a 1.03 WHIP over 36.0 innings. Before the season, scouts had me convinced that despite his impressive velocity (his average fastball of 96.7 mph leads MLB by a wide margin), his lack of refinement and secondary pitches would [...]

Mostly MLB Notes: Talking Andrew Cashner, Homer Bailey and a look around the league.
Despite averaging 94.5 mph with his fastball while posting a 3.09 ERA and 1.13 WHIP, Andrew Cashner recorded just 128 strikeouts over 175.0 innings last season after finally becoming a full-time starter. The K rate improved after the All-Star break, when he produced a 2.14 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with a 61:19 K:BB ratio over [...]
