ALL STAR BREAK STAT UPDATE





The lineup is very top-heavy, especially with the injuries to Judge, Tapia, and Torreyes. After Hicks Sanchez and Didi are a bunch of league-average hitters whose main contribution is defense. JT Riddle has crashed back down to earth after a blazing-hot start, and 1B has been a black hole of production all year. So much, in fact, that Ian Happ was learning 1B in AAA Scranton before his call-up to replace the injured Torreyes at 2B.



Losing Chad Green for the year hurts. A lot. He's been the most valuable relief pitcher by WAR in all of baseball so far this year. I'm going to keep an eye on Tyler Webb - as long as his walks outnumber his strikeouts his numbers could regress badly. Brad Hand has given up an unsightly 2.3 HR/9 since his acquisition, but hopefully that number should regress back to his career-average 1.1 in the second half. Meanwhile, Luis Cessa has been a pleasant surprise as a multi-inning reliever in the middle innings.

DOWN ON THE FARM

AAA Scranton WB Railriders

The Railriders currently have a record of 46-45. Their offense ranks among the top in the International League, while their starting pitching ranks among the worst.

For much of the year, the Railrider offense has been driven by prospects Ian Happ (ranked 9th in the Yankee organization), Dustin Fowler (ranked 18th) and Miguel Andujar (ranked 17th). Whichever 1B are not currently being used at the Major League level have also proven to be middle-of-the-order forces for the Railriders.

After dominating AA in 12 starts, LHP Justus Sheffield (ranked 16th) has been inconsistent in his initial AAA action. Meanwhile, fellow top prospect RHP Chance Adams (ranked 3rd) has struggled with his command in 5 starts. RHP Domingo German (ranked 15th) has spent much of the year on the DL with a partially torn labrum.


AA Trenton Thunder

The Thunder currently have a record of 42-48.

The number 2 prospect in the organization (and 6th in MLB), Gleyber Torres, has spent his entire year so far at Trenton learning how to play 2B. SP Ereck Fedde has spent much of the year on the DL and has been limited to 9.2 ineffective innings on the year. Fellow RHP Domingo Acevedo seems destined for the pen has he has struggled with his control, walking nearly a batter an inning. Meanwhile, OF prospect Julio Pablo Martinez has hit .248 with 5 HR in 26 games since his promotion after hitting .362 with 10 HR in Single-A Tampa. LHP prospect Tanner Scott, who came over in the Zach Britton deal, is out for 10 months with a torn elbow ligament. INF prospect Jorge Mateo is also out a few weeks with a sprained ankle.


A Tampa Yankees

The Yankees have a record of 46-44. There are no notable prospects at this level.


A Charleston Riverdogs

The Riverdogs have a record of 47-44.

The most intriguing prospect on the Riverdogs is Oswaldo Cabrera. The 18-year-old switch hitter has already shown himself to be an elite defender in the middle infield. His bat is beginning to catch up to his glove, as he his hitting .282 with 9 HRs so far this season. He is somebody to watch who could make a massive jump in prospect rankings in upcoming years.

Meanwhile, late-round college relievers selected in this year’s amateur draft Lincoln Henzman and Max Engelbrekt have gotten their starts to their professional careers at this level to mixed results.


Short-A Staten Island Yankees

The Yankees have a record of 10-13 in the first part of their young season. There are a number of intriguing prospects with high ceilings currently at this level.

Three RHPs provide the core of the SI Yanks rotation. 19-year-old Riley Pint is already capable of throwing 96 mph and has the potential for three plus pitches. If his changeup develops, his ceiling is that of a front-line starter. If it doesn’t, he profiles well as a high-leverage reliever. 21-year-old Jorge Guzman is a classic example of someone who throws 100 mph and has no clue where it is going. He is likely destined for the pen as he climbs through the minors. Meanwhile, 19-year-old Jio Orozco , despite not having overpowering stuff or any standout traits, has managed to succeed wherever he has gone, pitching to a 2.02 ERA so far in the young season.

CF Estevan Florial has the potential to be a 5-tool player if he can improve his contact. As it stands now, he has above-average power, elite baserunning and defense, and an incredible arm. His contact potential, however, is limited by his proneness to strikeouts.

SS Nonnie Williams is not highly regarded throughout the rest of the league. However, Yankees scouts believe that the 19-year-old switch hitter can be a solid everyday infielder who can also play some adequate OF in a pinch. Williams has elite speed and an incredible arm in the infield and has the potential to be good for a SS at the plate.

1B/OF Isiah Gilliam has a lot of raw power. So far it has translated well in the lower minors, but if he cannot improve his contact he will struggle in the upper minors. A poor defender, he is likely a DH in the future.

OF Juan Soto has a bright future ahead of him if he reaches his potential. Yankees scouts he can be above-average in all five components of hitting (contact, gap power, HR power, eye, and avoiding Ks) while being serviceable in the OF. Scouts believe he can play 1B adequately in a pinch.

INF Wilkerman Garcia profiles as an average fielder who can hit for average from both sides of the plate. Although not projected to hit many HRs, Garcia has the potential to be a doubles machine who can play anywhere in the infield. Only 19, his power may increase as he gets older and goes through the system.


Rookie Ball Players

Since the Yankees have 4 rookie-ball teams, I’m just going to combine the analysis into one spot (and by position).

C Sam McMillan is our 3rd round pick from this year. Although very raw, Yankees scouts believe that he has the potential to hit 30 HRs a year with average contact while playing average defense behind the plate. He is a line drive hitter who bats from the right side of the plate.

1B/3B Mikey Polansky is our 8th round pick from this year. The left-handed hitter has above-average power. Defensively his ceiling is a plus defender at 3B and an elite defender at 1B.

INF Nick Allen is our 2nd round pick from this year. The right-handed hitter projects as average to slightly above-average at the plate with elite speed and baserunning skills. A natural SS, he projects to be a very good 2B.

INF Cooper Swanson is our 5th round pick from this year. A bat-first prospect, Yankees scouts believe that Cooper has the potential to hit 40 HR on a consistent basis. A natural SS, Cooper will likely have to move to somewhere else on the infield

INF Will Hoyle is our 7th round pick from this year. Hoyle is a jack-of-all-trades, master of none prospect. He is not likely to hit for much power, but could hit in .290+ and play okay defense everywhere but SS.

INF Asdrubal Alvarez is not highly regarded outside the Yankee organization at the moment. However, that could change over the next few years. Yankees scouts believe that he has the potential to hit .310 with tremendous raw power and above-average defense.

CF Everson Pereira is the crown jewel of the Yankees 2017 International Amateur Free Agent class. Barely 16 years old, Pereira has already been promoted out of the International Complex and playing in the DSL. Pereira earned every cent of his $4.5 million bonus as a 5-tool player. There are scouts in the Yankees organization that believe he can play at a AA level already.

At the end of the eighteenth week, the Yankees are 62-44, leading the AL East by 7.5 games over the 65-52 Boston Red Sox. The bullpen has ERA of 3.34, second-best in the AL. The Yankees are 22-19 in bullpen games on the year.




*NOTE* I have noticed that in the month of August key members of the bullpen (particularly David Robertson, Zach Putnam, Jonathan Holder, and to a lesser extent Dellin Betances) have begun to struggle as they approach 60 innings on the year. Walk and HR rates are up for all of them, and several have even had outings where they fail to record an out or only record one. I am wondering if it is a coincidence or if 60 innings is a milestone to relievers what 200 innings is for starters. My gut is leaning towards coincidence, but I just thought it worth mentioning.

MLB STANDINGS (as of September 4)



The first takeaway from looking at the standings is that the division races are pretty much formalities at this point. Anybody currently leading a division losing their division race would require a pretty big September collapse.

The Wild Cards, on the other hand, are pretty wide open Ė well, in the American League at least. The Nationals and Diamondbacks are likely the NL Wild Cards, although the Cardinals and Giants arenít quite out of the race yet. In the American League, the American League East has become the American League Beast, as the top 4 teams in the Wild Card race are from the division and are within 3.5 games of each other. That could be a very interesting race to watch down the stretch.

Here’s a look at the final standings of the year. Some thoughts, by division:

AL EAST
In terms of talent, this might be the division that is closest between the first place team and the last place team. Every single team held a playoff spot at some point during the season, and even the Yankees’ division lead, which tended to hover in the 7-12 game lead throughout the season, never quite felt secure due to the streakiness of the team. Overall, the only reason that the two wild card teams came from this division is because each of the other divisions in the AL had a super-team that deflated the records of everyone else in the division. In most years, the inter-divisional games, which tended to be around .500 for everyone, would have kept the 2nd and 3rd place teams out of the wild card spots.

AL CENTRAL
There’s the Cleveland Indians, and then there’s everyone else. Cleveland might be one of the most dangerous teams in the league with their dominant workhorses in the rotation. Minnesota is a pitching staff away from contention – their offense is legit. The Royals, White Sox, and Tigers are in various stages of rebuilds. This division should be the Indians’ for the time being.

AL WEST
The Astros are situated comfortably at the top of the division. The Angels managed to free up some money by trading Albert Pujols to the Astros during the year, only having to retain 25% of his contract. If they spend the money they freed up in the move wisely, they can make a run at a wild card spot over the next few years. The Rangers are another team in dire need of a pitching staff if they want to contend. Despite having one of the largest budgets in the league, however, they will need to be economical in their attempts to build a pitching staff, as they could use an upgrade at all 5 spots in their rotation and several spots in their pen and only have $30 million available. The Athletics appear to be a year or two away from contending. Meanwhile, the Mariners seem destined to wallow in mediocrity – they have no money for free agents and no top talent in their farm system.

NL EAST
The New York Mets might just be the most complete team in the league right now. They have elite starters, an elite offense, and an above-average bullpen. Thor is out for the entirety of 2018 with Tommy John surgery and the Met juggernaut of a rotation doesn’t even blink.(Real life note: this kinda shows just how impressive it is the Mets have struggled the last few years. Developing 5 aces and not being able to capitalize on it while they were all cheap). The Nationals offense, meanwhile, goes as Harper goes, and their rotation is second to the Mets. The Marlins, frankly, overperformed, while the Phillies and Braves continue their rebuilds.

NL CENTRAL
The Cubs led their charge through an above-average offense, a front-heavy rotation, and an elite bullpen. The Cardinals are a top starter away from truly challenging the Cubs for the division. The Reds have some intriguing pieces but desperately need to upgrade their pitching staff if they want to have even a longshot chance at a wild card. The Brewers and Pirates, meanwhile, need to decide whether they want to blow it up and rebuild or double-down and try to win now.

NL WEST
The Dodges run the West, and should for the next few years. Their offense is ridiculous, ranking first in everything but stolen bases in the NL, and their rotation and bullpen are both elite. They also have the money to keep this together for the next several years. The Diamondbacks have a lot of talent, but don’t really have the money to build upon a solid core. The Giants frankly should begin a rebuild, while the Rockies and the Padres are in ones.

PLAYOFF COVERAGE – WILD CARD ROUND/DIVISION ROUND PREVIEW

AL Wild Card – Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox
The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 7-1 during the Wild Card game on October 4, 2017. Marcus Stroman threw a complete game to win Wild Card Game MVP.

NL Wild Card – Arizona Diamondbacks at Washington Nationals
The Washington Nationals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks on October 5, 2017 to advance to the NLDS. Nationals SS Emmanuel Burriss won Wild Card Game MVP with 4 hits in 5 at-bats.


ALDS PREVIEW
The Toronto Blue Jays finished 3rd in the AL East with a record of 86-76. The Blue Jays didn’t really excel in any one area, but they didn’t struggle in any area either. They scored the 9th-most runs in the American League while giving up the 6th least. Their offense is built primarily by getting on base and hitting HRs – their AVG was 13th in the AL, while their OBP and HR were 5th and 3rd, respectively. Meanwhile, their rotation ERA was 6th in the AL, while the bullpen ERA was 7th.

Position-by-Position Breakdown
CATCHER: Gary Sanchez was arguably the best-hitting catcher in the AL in 2017, while still providing average defense behind the plate. Russell Martin may be a good clubhouse presence, but his best days at the plate are definitely behind him. ADVANTAGE: NYY

FIRST BASE: Todd Frazier has provided some power and defense at the position, but he still provided below-average offense for 1B for the Yankees down the stretch. In an admittedly limited sample size, Rowdy Tellez showed why many are optimistic about his potential at the plate. ADVANTAGE: TOR

SECOND BASE: Devon Travis had better power numbers, but Ronald Torreyes played significantly better defense and got on base much more. ADVANTAGE: NYY (slight)

SHORTSTOP: Injuries have made Troy Tulowitzki a shell of his former self. His defense is still above average, but his offensive numbers have dipped dramatically and he will soon have to move off SS as his range in the infield decreases with age. JJ Hardy performed admirably in a small sample size in September, but it is unlikely he can continue to produce at such as high rate. ADVANTAGE: push

THIRD BASE: 40-HR/100 RBI Gold Glove candidate Josh Donaldson, or light-hitting defense-first JT Riddle whose offensive numbers are inflated by a ridiculous two weeks in May? Easy choice here. ADVANTAGE: TOR

LEFT FIELD: Due to injuries to Raimel Tapia and Steven Pierce, neither starting LF will be playing in this series. Brett Gardner provides a veteran presence and positive defense in left, while Chris Coghlan sacrifices a bit in the field for a bit more at the plate. ADVANTAGE: push

CENTER FIELD: Gregory Blanco, who signed to a minor league deal mid-summer, has been a godsend for Toronto down the stretch. Blanco has provided solid play in the outfield since Kevin Pillar was traded to the Astros at the deadline. Meanwhile, prospect Ian Happ struggled for much of the year but seemed to heat up during the last week of the season. ADVANTAGE: push

RIGHT FIELD: Jose Bautista’s age began to show during 2017. He hit only 24 HRs and was significantly below-average in RF. Meanwhile, Aaron Judge is a legitimate MVP candidate, hitting .300 with 56 HRs and playing good defense. ADVANTAGE: NYY

DESIGNATED HITTER: Aaron Hicks is the epitome of “jack of all trades, master of none.” He hits for an acceptable average with average power and serviceable defense. As a DH, however, he doesn’t come close to the level of Edwin Encarnacion, who returned to Toronto in a trade over the summer and hit for the same average while hitting twice as many HRs. ADVANTAGE: TOR

STARTING ROTATION: Luis Severino won the pitching Triple Crown, while Masahiro Tanaka matches up favorably with the Blue Jays right-heavy lineup. Lefty Jordan Montgomery will likely get a short leash, while Matt Garza didn’t even make the postseason roster and instead will be replaced by a bullpen game. As for Toronto, Francisco Liriano is the undisputed ace of the staff, while Aaron Sanchez only pitched in 18 innings since returning from injury. When Marcus Stroman is on, he is dominant, but when he’s not, he’s a major liability. Lastly, Mat Latos struggled in 18 starts and would probably not start on any other playoff team. ADVANTAGE: NYY

BULLPEN: Toronto’s best reliever is Roberto Osuna, who only pitched 0.2 innings during the season due to a torn rotator cuff. Setup man Chris Devenski struggles with inconsistency and has a tendency to give up the long ball, but if he can keep that under control he is solid. The Yankee bullpen, however, led the American League with a 3.35 ERA in 712 innings – an ERA that would be even lower if August wasn’t such a disaster for the Yankee bullpen (4.72 ERA in 114 innings during the month of August). ADVANTAGE: NYY

ALCS PREVIEW
The Houston Astros finished 1st in the AL West with a record of 93-69. The Astros were led by their offense, which was the highest-scoring offense of the American League. The Astros hit an MLB-record 285 HRs while still ranking 2nd in the American League in both batting average and OBP. The Astros’ lone weakness lay in their starting rotation, which underperformed their talent levels throughout the season.

Position-by-Position Breakdown
CATCHER: The Yankees traded Brian McCann to the Astros to pave the way for Gary Sancehz to start at catcher. It was definitely the right move - Gary Sanchez was arguably the best-hitting catcher in the AL in 2017, while Brian McCann was barely replacement-level. ADVANTAGE: NYY

FIRST BASE: Todd Frazier has provided some power and defense at the position, but he still provided below-average offense for 1B for the Yankees down the stretch. Marwin Gonzalez and Albert Pujols split the majority of the time at 1B. Together, they provide much more consistent offense than Frazier and similar defense. ADVANTAGE: HOU

SECOND BASE: Ronald Torreyes is a poor man’s Jose Altuve. Even in a down year, Altuve still hit .304 with 16 HRs and pummeled lefties with a .357 AVG and an OPS+ of 147, When you have the choice, you go with the perennial MVP candidate. ADVANTAGE: HOU

SHORTSTOP: Carlos Correa hit nearly .300 with 40 HRs and 128 RBIs. Slightly below-average on defense, Correa more than makes up for it with his bat. Meanwhile, JJ Hardy performed admirably in a small sample size in September, but it is unlikely he can continue to produce at such as high rate. ADVANTAGE: HOU

THIRD BASE: JT Riddle may have won the ALDS MVP by hitting .400, but he can’t be trusted to sustain this level of offense. Meanwhile, Alex Bregman provides consistent offense and average at the 3B position, and the former 2nd overall pick will only get better as he gets older. ADVANTAGE: HOU

LEFT FIELD: Yulieski Gurriel was second on the Astros in HRs and RBIs, with 31 and 100 respectively. Gurriel punishes lefties and is solid against righties – however, his defense in let leaves much to be decided. Brett Gardner provides a veteran presence and positive defense in left, but age has definitely caught up to him. ADVANTAGE: HOU

CENTER FIELD: The Astros traded for Kevin Pillar from the Blue Jays at the deadline, giving up setup man Chris Devinksi. Kevin is extremely light-hitting, but makes up for it in his stellar defense in center. Prospect Ian Happ provides more power at the plate, but doesn’t play as good defense. ADVANTAGE: push

RIGHT FIELD: Jake Marisnick makes most of the starts in right for the Astros. Has a bit of power at the plate and plays solid defense in right. Howver, Aaron Judge is a legitimate MVP candidate. ADVANTAGE: NYY

DESIGNATED HITTER: Aaron Hicks is the epitome of “jack of all trades, master of none.” He hits for an acceptable average with average power and serviceable defense. Prospect AJ Reed and Evan Gattis platoon at DH for the Astros, providing similar offense to Hicks. ADVANTAGE: push

STARTING ROTATION: Dallas Keuchal is the undisputed ace of the Astros staff. When he’s on, he generating weak contact and going deep into games. Lance McCullers Jr spent much of the year on the disable list with ulnar nerve entrapment and has struggled to live up to his potential since he came back from injury. The Astros acquired James Paxton from the Mariners at the deadline in exchange for OF George Springer, and has performed significantly better since being traded. Finally, Brady Rodgers should not be starting playoff games and is only starting due to injuries. As for the Yankees, Luis Severino is the likely Cy Young award winner. Masahiro Tanaka and Jordan Montgomery, however, are both plagued by the long ball. ADVANTAGE: push

BULLPEN: The Astros bullpen, led by closer Ken Giles, was ranked the 4th-best in the American League. However, they are facing the best and deepest bullpen in the American League. ADVANTAGE: NYY

NYY 3, HOU 5, push 3

WORLD SERIES PREVIEW
The Chicago Cubs finished 1st in the AL Central with a record of 96-66. The Cubs are a strong all-around team, with a strong front-of-the-rotation, an elite bullpen, and a high-powered offense.

Position-by-Position Breakdown
CATCHER: Wilson Contreras started the most games for the Cubs behind the plate, although that was only 85 games. A league-average bat this year, Contreras should only improve as he gets more playing time. Against most teams, he would be the better catcher. The Yankees are not one of those teams. ADVANTAGE: NYY

FIRST BASE: Todd Frazier has provided some power and defense at the position, but he still provided below-average offense for 1B for the Yankees down the stretch. Anthony Rizzo, on the other hand, provides elite offense and defense. The 2017 All-Star hit .299 with 43 HRs and is a candidate for his second Gold Glove Award. ADVANTAGE: CHI

SECOND BASE: Javier Baez has the superior tools. He has above-average power and top defensive potential. Neither of which he has harnessed yet. Ronald Torreyes is not a particularly flashy option, but he had the superior year in every aspect compared to Baez with one exception – HRs. ADVANTAGE: NYY

SHORTSTOP: Addison Russell continued to build off his breakout 2016 season by posting a better average and being more selective at the plate. Russell murdered lefties on the year to an OPS+ of 185, and provides above-average defense at the most important defensive position. JJ Hardy, meanwhile, has struggled in recent weeks, and being replaced by Adeiny Heccheveria is not quite out of the question. ADVANTAGE: CHI

THIRD BASE: Kris Bryant might win the NL MVP and the Gold Glove Award at 3B. He led the league with 54 HRs and 132 RBIs and was worth 8.3 WAR on the season. JT Riddle is a good story, but that’s it. ADVANTAGE: CHI

LEFT FIELD: Thanks to an injury to John Jay, Kyle Schwarber is starting in left for Chicago. The big lefty has a powerful bat, but his defense in left is lacking even when he’s healthy. A strained hamstring will limit his already-pitiful range in left. Brett Gardner is nowhere near the hitter than Schwarber is, but he is a much better defender and has been playing like a man possessed this postseason. ADVANTAGE: push

CENTER FIELD: Old friend Jacoby Ellsbury currently mans center for the Cubs. He had a solid year after being traded, hitting .281 with 9 HRs and 44 RBIs at the top of the Cubs order. Aaron Hicks provides a more power at the plate and has the significantly better arm in center, but Ellsbury’s range and baserunning skills are better than Hick’s. ADVANTAGE: push

RIGHT FIELD: Jason Heyward is an elite defender. His bat, however, has not lived up to the massive contract the Cubs gave him after the 2015 season. Meanwhile, Aaron Judge is an MVP candidate. This is like third base, just in reverse. ADVANTAGE: NYY

BENCH: The Cubs are missing a key part of their bench with Ben Zobrist out with a torn ACL. Matt Szczur serves as a defensive sub for Schwarber and is a candidate to start if Schwarber DH’s at Yankee Stadium. Chesny Young serves as the utility infielder, and Jeimer Candelario is the big bat off the bench and another candidate to DH. Meanwhile, the Yankees carry a short bench. Ian Happ has the ability to play anywhere on the field, Adeiny Hecchavaria plays elite infield defense, and Luke Voit is a big bat off the bench. Against righties at Yankee Stadium, look to see Ian Happ in center with Aaron Hicks DHing, and against lefties Luke Voit DHing. ADVANTAGE: push

STARTING ROTATION: The Yankees catch a break missing Kyle Hendricks, who is out with a wrist injury. Jake Arrieta is the undisputed ace of the staff, while Jon Lester had a down year but still has the talent to be a big-game pitcher. Jon Lackey has still kept pitching well despite his age, even throwing a no-hitter back in August against the Phillies. Injuries have forced groundball pitcher Ryan Williams into the rotation, whose success will be determined by how much he can keep the ball down. Yankees ace Luis Severino will not be available until Game 3 after pitching in Game 7 of the ALCS, and once again the Yankees choose to substitute a bullpen game rather than giving Matt Garza an inning in the playoffs. The lefty-heavy lineup is a good matchup for Jordon Montgomery, not so much for Masahiro Tanaka ADVANTAGE: push

BULLPEN: The Cubs bullpen was the best in the National League. Led by Wade Davis and Carl Edwards Jr, the Cubs ‘pen features a variety of highly effective arms who strikeout a lot of batters. The Yankees bullpen has met their match. ADVANTAGE: push

NYY 3, CHI 3, push 5
