Inaugural Draft Results: Davon Carlock

Updated 01-16-2015 at 06:55 PM by absurddoctor

Our tenth pick, good for 178th pick overall, went to Davon Carlock.



Davon was lifted as left fielder when first drafted, and while I hoped to get him some time in the minors for improvement, he was already close to meeting his currently scouted potential so I knew he might be ready early. After only three games at AAA, he he was brought up to cover for an injury. He continued to do well, but in his sixth game he was hit in...

Inaugural Draft Results: Bill Shinkle

Posted 01-16-2015 at 06:15 PM by absurddoctor

Our round 9 pick (147th overall) went to Bill Shinkle, a 32 year old second baseman who could easily play third or short still.



Bill is 32 years old with a significant number of injuries in his past. With an obvious decline in his 2018 stats from previous years (though, he did lead the league in triples), I wasn't more hoping for decent numbers from Bill, and that his leadership abilities would bring a big intangible benefit....

Inaugural Draft Results: Andres Chavez

Updated 01-16-2015 at 06:02 PM by absurddoctor

Our 8th pick (142 second overall) brought in right-handed starting pitcher Andres Chavez.



Andres was drafted with the intention of keeping him in the minors for most of the season. Ultimately, he had to step it up early and is currently holding the number four spot in our rotation. Chavez is clearly the weak-spot; he is the only starter without a positive WAR (though at least its not negative), the only starter with a losing...

Inaugural Draft Results: Matt Lyons

Posted 01-16-2015 at 04:46 PM by absurddoctor

On to round 7! Overall pick number 111 brought right-handed starting pitcher Matt Lyons to the Boston Barristas.



Back to Boston I should say. His history is another peculiar story. In the initial 2015 inaugural draft, he went in the 7th round (pick 14, 110 overall). It looks like he had a 1-year five million dollar contract, because he was a free agent at the end of the season. 2015,2016, and 2017 all saw him pick up on...

Inaugural Draft Results: Bill Cooper

Updated 01-16-2015 at 04:22 PM by absurddoctor

Our round 6 pick (106th overall) went to SP prospect Bill Cooper.



Five-pitch pitchers always attract me, especially if they are all at least decent pitches. The fifth pitch which can't be seen in the screenshot is a Forkball, currently rated at 45/60.

Cooper's case is a weird one. He was the 8th pick in Round 1 of the 2017 draft (going to the Jacksonville Twins). He pitched 2.2 innings for their AA team that...
