2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Where would you have had Martes had he been eligible? About ballpark where did you have Derek Fisher, Franklin Perez, and Yordan Alvarez? Thanks!
(Dustin from Houston)
Oh geez, probably a little lower than preseason. The struggles have been exactly what you would worry the struggles would be. Glad I didn't have to pick a spot for him. Fisher and Perez would in the next 10-15, Alvarez wasn't really in consideration. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Does yordan alvarez enter the top 100 discussion since all he does is crush?
(Lewis21 from Tampa)
I'm not quite there yet on Yordan Alvarez, but he's a name worth watching. First-base only profiles tend to suffer in our rankings though. (Craig Goldstein)
