An all-star starting pitcher from 2015 has some serious red flags I’m unable to overlook. He’s joined by a righty whose ERA estimators were more than a run better than his ERA in 2015, but the ERA estimators don’t tell the whole story. On the positive side of things, a
The outfield is deep, and for that reason, it isn’t combined with another position in the Like Him Less, Like Him More series. At shortstop, I chose not to discuss the rankings disparity for Manny Machado as it appeared the result of some rankers not ranking him at that position.
I’ll start by addressing the elephant in the room. I did not discuss the sizable gap in ECR and my rank of Manny Machado. It appears some experts aren’t ranking Machado at shortstop, and that’s the reason for the ECR of seventh at shortstop. Moving on, a pair of Cardinals

Rasmus becomes yet another power hitter with high strikeout
Yovani Gallardo will be leaving the only organization he’s ever played for, the Brewers, and changing leagues as a result of Monday’s trade to the Rangers. The Brewers received middle infielder Luis Sardinas, relief pitcher Corey Knebel, and 18-year old pitching prospect Marcos Diplan in return for Gallardo’s last year of team
Breakout is an ambiguous word, so with that in mind, I’ll start by clarifying that I’m not expecting Kyle Gibson to be a fantasy ace. I do, however, believe he makes for an interesting late round flyer in large mixed leagues and deeper formats after digging into his 2014 performance.
