Today's notes:

Brice Turang SB/BA help

Could be everything we hoped from tovar

Sean Murphy’s PT is NOT good.

lineup

Platoon watch:

Luke Raily - streamer? Strong side platoon watch

Isaac Paredes PT? Just 1 of 3 vs RHP

Merrifield not a everyday player early on. Only 1 o f 3 vs rhp

Luis Garcis leading off vs RHP IS a thing.

Graham ashcraft season

Ashcraft 3 pitch mix (at least 11%) but heavy cutter/slider usage

+1.9 on slider and added 2in of horizontal break

-1.2 mph on cutter

MacKenzie Gore good outing

M. Gore velo up on all secondaries and posted a 32% CSW% vs Braves. Impressive. This is with 63% fastball usage with FB sitting 94.7 mph on the day. In line with last year.

Tanner Houck new cutter

T. Houck velo down across the board. Yuck.

Did feature a new cutter that he averaged around 90 mph on and threw it 27% of the time (2nd most of any pitch) A 40% CSW% - not too shabby

Springs is amazing and featured a new sweeper.

Springs is amazing and featured a new sweeper that he threw 12% of the time. Got a 40% CSW on it and a 41% CSW overall. Just another weapon for the budding star.

Drew Rasmussen is interesting (tweet)

Carlos Estevez sweeper?

Carlos Estevez velo dipped yesterday-1.9 on 4-seam

-2.3 on slider

Ryan Weathers watchlist

Musgrove returning. Could be odd man out

+1.8 mph on 4-seam but lost movement. Could be an issue if it is too straight.

1.6 on sweeper but 5 inches added to vert. Break. And 2 inches to horizontal break. Had a 40% whiff rate.

I want to see him throw more secondaries.

Chapman big velo spike

Kolten Wong and Jarred Kelenic sat 2 straight vs LHP

Names to stash in deeper leagues: Senzel/ Votto/ Kirilloff

Deep league note: Zack McKinstry getting strong side run with J. Schoop getting weak side.

Braxton Garrett is an add

M. Kepler DTD - next man up?

E. Sosa strong spring and carrying it over. Can the PT be there?

INSTANT REACTION to Eloy Jimenez injury and the potential fallout of the newly available playing time.
