Draft Scripts: Using NFBC ADP’s to evaluate Outfield

In anticipation of the FSTA draft this week, I continue my early look at NFBC ADP’s, concentrating on the top 200 in money drafts. While the names continue to shuffle others stay the same. Outfield will be about trust, mixing some power with guys who can steal some bases and catching that bargain that others either overlooked or were burned by last year. It is evident in the ADP information that it will take due diligence and maybe a little luck to hit on the breakouts this year. Due the fact there are forty nine names to digest I made one chart and took the liberty of splitting up their strengths by color:

Red – 20+ HR, 8 < SB (Power); Green – 10 < HR, 20+ SB (Speed); Blue – 10+ HR, 10+ SB (Blends)

Here is how the outfield stacks up. I listed their draft rank below and also inserted their average ADP’s in the NFBC drafts to give an early indicator of their value prior to Thursday’s FSTA draft.

OF NFBC Avg ADP Chart Update 2

Keeping with the format, I have processed each player drafted in the top 200 in charts with their respective Steamer Projections courtesy of Fangraphs.com. After each group I will give some thoughts about how the outfielders stack up and then move to the next one. The first two charts will be in groups of seventeen then the last group will round out to the 49 outfielders according to the ADP numbers.

Group One – 4 Power, 1 Speed and 12 Blends

OF NFBC Projection Chart 1-17

I mean the first seventeen at most positions should be rock solid and for the most part the outfielders are. I have sort of clumped some highlights into categories since the Golden Globes just happened, so here goes. By the way I am not scared of either Matt Kemp or Justin Upton in San Diego but I wrote about that already here.
Safety in numbers: Adam Jones, Baltimore
He is not flashy and is always a regression candidate and he just keeps producing. It is like you do not feel great drafting him at his ADP but he is consistent while not flashy, which in the first round is not so bad.
Bounce Back: Ryan Braun, Milwaukee
I was warning drafters last year to avoid Ryan, but I am back. Since his ADP is trending down, his health may be up and guys who produce 28 home runs and 12 steals are dwindling with a batting average near .300, so I am here with open arms.
Trust Issues: Michael Brantley, Cleveland; Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado
While I am intrigued by the price on Carlos Gonzalez, his checkered health past, last year makes him a very risky option this early. But he could deliver a season like Michael Brantley did last year. Let that marinate a minute. Brantley broke through for a strong 2014, are you feeling lucky paying for a repeat? If you are the cost may alarm you.
Wild Cards: Bryce Harper, Washington; George Springer, Houston
Two guys who could determine how teams finish. I mean there is a 25 home run and 15 steal season while hitting .290 just waiting for Harper who people seem to forget is only 22 years old. With batting averages dropping across baseball again, a guy who could hit 30 home runs and if his legs stay healthy, steal 20 is tolerable if he hits .240, but the .240 could be iffy. If Springer gets his average to .250, then he is a potential top 10 outfielder. There, I said it.
Upside Play: Starling Marte, Pittsburgh
At the same cost as Carlos Gonzalez who may strain a pinkie or Billy Hamilton I can get a poor man’s Jacoby Ellsbury who is younger with more upside? Twenty picks later? Absolutely.
Group Two – 6 Power, 2 Speed, 9 Blends

OF NFBC Projection Chart 18-34

Safety in numbers: Nelson Cruz, Seattle
It is clear that Nelson Cruz’s huge 2014 netted him the Mariners contract which is twofold, first he will protect Robinson Cano and second he adds a power right handed bat that they have craved. While I am not saying to invest heavily in a repeat, he can still hit 25 home runs and you know what you are getting with Cruz.
Bounce Back: Jay Bruce, Cincinnati
At a time when power hitters are craved a strong return by Jay Bruce at a deflated cost would be huge for his fantasy value. We know he can hit for power, or at least should, but will his batting average return to respectability? Or does the shift have another victim?
Trust Issues: Charlie Blackburn, Colorado; J.D. Martinez, Detroit
One had a career year in Coors field and the other was an outcast from the Astros and found success in Motown? If I had to pick from the two, I think a repeat in power by Martinez is possible with some losses in batting average but his Steamer projection supports a solid season. I think Blackburn is a nice story but to invest in him this early when there are other options available late is a tough pick to justify.
Wild Cards: Rusney Castillo, Boston; Jorge Soler, Chicaco Cubs
A Cuban theme here in the wild card section so all kidding aside, they both have immense ability. If Castillo can translate his winter season statistics to the major leagues then the Red Sox have an even deeper outfield and should be dealing Allen Craig sooner than later. Not to kill the theme, but a power hitting outfielder is becoming rarer and rarer, so Jorge Soler has to be on radars. Since he could hit more home runs without destroying a team’s batting average I may venture to gamble on him since he can develop over say a Jay Bruce….the shift….
Upside Play: Jason Heyward, St. Louis
On my tombstone it will read, he trusted in in Jason Heyward. He has not hit left-handed pitching, well, at all lately and even though I sang his praises from the rooftops last year Heyward was replaced in Atlanta by Nick Markakis? Yes, that Nick Markakis. I am not saying that 20/20 is a guarantee but would it surprise anyone that being a Cardinal unlocked his potential? Would not be the first guy to have that happen.
Group Three: 3 Power, 4 Speed, 7 Blends, Melky Cabrera

OF NFBC Projection Chart 35-49

Safety in numbers: There is not really safety out here….

Bounce Back: Shin-Soo Choo, Texas
With health, it is hard to imagine a prohibitive top twenty outfielder in 2014 draft preps has fallen so precipitously, but Choo has. How many owners did he upset? In NFBC formats this means he is a tenth round pick and chance well worth taking. Unless the curse of Kinsler is real.
Trust Issues: Same as the safety problem, there are going to be trust issues here as well. Just look at the ADP’s of Alex Rios and the aforementioned Choo.
Wild Cards: Avisail Garcia, Chicago White Sox; Yasmany Tomas, Arizona
It takes some stones to invest in players out here in drafts and when you see the pitching options you will see why I am going to get power and hitters early and try to target pitching later. But I will take a chance on Avisail Garcia here since he could have a ceiling of 20 home runs with ten steals at an ADP of 172 on average. All day every day. The White Sox are going to score some runs. Yasmany Tomas will come with some hype especially with the breakout that Jose Abreu had last year but I fear that Tomas will resemble a different White Sox teammate, Dayan Viciedo. Tread lightly here….
Upside: Gregory Polanco, Pittsburgh
There are all kinds of terms, post-hype sleeper for example, whatever you want to say I think Polanco had a tough go after his promotion last year but he is talented. After watching him in person I was a fan and he has presence. Though his ceiling in 2015 is probably 13 home runs and 25 stolen bases that is a bargain where he is going.
It is getting late so I am going to offer up one more chart with player that are beyond the top 200 in each category for outfield with their projections included. When you speak of me, please speak nicely.

Rescue Scripts: Replacing Tulo &Cargo

Happier times in the Rockies with a healthy Tulo & CarGo, but now both may be out the rest of 2014
The good old days. Both of Colorado’s studs will miss the remainder of the 2014 campaign

“Love on the rocks ain’t no surprise
Pour me a drink,
And I’ll tell you some lies
Got nothing to lose,
So you just sing the blues, all the time”

It’s not a surprise that Troy Tulowitzki will miss the remainder of the season due to a hip injury. Part of the reason that he is so frustrating to own is that you have to factor in for lost time during the season. 2014 is no different. Tulo has played more than 150 games twice in the last eight years. His per year average is a paltry 117 games. However, when he is on the field, he is unquestionably the best player at his position in baseball. That is what draws fantasy owners into chasing the unicorn when his value is depressed. It’s a trap.

His uber-talented teammate is cut from the same cloth. Unfortunately, that cloth is made from frilly lace. A myriad of injuries have hampered Carlos Gonzalez this season. He’s been bothered by thumb and knee injuries all year. News broke tonight that he will go under the knife and have surgery on his patellar tendon, which will likely also end his season. If CarGo does in fact miss the remainder of the season, his average gamers played per season will be 111. In spite of the time missed, this will be the first year that he will not go 20/20. This is why fantasy owners were willing to take him on average with the fifth pick in live drafts entering this year. If he is on the field, he produces. If…

“You need what you need
You can say what you want
Not much you can do
When the feeling is gone
May be blue skies above,
But it’s cool
When your love’s on the rocks”

So, as a fantasy owner it’s time to move on. It is time to look to your league’s waiver wire and see what can be found. With the final six weeks approaching, the free agent pool can be thin so I tried to find three replacements for each by position. If possible, I would stash Michael Cuddyer, available in 69% of ESPN leagues and 62% of CBS leagues. What do you have to lose, he can hit for power if healthy and on his rehab assignment has hit .464 over 10 games. If he is not there, here are some more options and a new chance to find production, if not love.

Replacing Tulo:

1. Jordy Mercer (Pirates): 39.5% ESPN, 44% CBS, 20% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 45 R, 7 HR, 41 RBI, 2 SB, 264/313/384
Last 30 Days:25 G, 11 R, HR, 13 RBI, SB, 315/392/472
ZiPS (R): 36 G, 2 HR, 13 RBI, SB, 257307/385

While Mercer is not a sexy name to add, he has been productive. In fact if you go to Fangraphs and look up shortstops over the last 30 days, his name will be on top at the position. While ZiPS is not painting a great picture over the remainder of the season, he has not produced at this level before so it will predict a regression. He has been killing left handed pitching and if he can keep the OBP where it is, he may be able to continue the production for the rest of the year. Of the options available, he may be the best.

2. Xander Bogaerts (Red Sox): 48.8% ESPN, 71% CBS, 52% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 46 R, 8 HR, 30 RBI, 2 SB, 233/307/385
Last 30 Days: 22 G, 7 R, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 226/239/357
ZiPS (R): 38 G, 17 R, 4 HR, 15 RBI, SB, 254/318/400

After a great start to the season playing shortstop, the Red Sox signed Stephen Drew and put “X” back at third base. Immediately after the trade, Bogaerts was quoted talking about how much more comfortable he is at shortstop. If you do not think being comfortable is important to a young player, here are his slash lines at both positions:

Bogaerts at 3B – 180 AB: 182/217/300
Bogaerts at SS – 276 AB: 269/349/384

Guess where Xander will be the rest of the year? Shortstop. This creates a great buy low opportunity in keeper leagues and makes him an intriguing add to replace the loss of a Tulowitzki. He may even eclipse the power numbers that ZiPS puts forth.

3. Josh Rutledge (Rockies): 8.6% ESPN, 26% CBS, 11% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 25 R, 3 HR, 21 RBI, 258/310/403
ZiPS (R): 32 G, 14 R, 2 HR, 12 RBI, 2 SB, 268/315/414

It feels like every time that the fantasy community gives up on Rutledge, he finds his way back into playing time. He is a speculative add but there is a risk to batting average when he is on the road and is running out of chances to maintain relevance. If he cannot attain the ZiPS projection, it is time to give up.

4. Chris Taylor (Mariners): 0.7% ESPN, 9% CBS, 3% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 7 R, 0 HR, 3 RBI, 367/407/469
Steamer (R): 26 G, 11 R, HR, 10 RBI, 3 SB, 266/326/372

I know I said three, but here is a bonus play. In deeper leagues I think Taylor deserves a look and his Steamer projection seems to agree. In fact, I have an idea of what Rutledge can do, so why not take a chance on a younger player in a better situation and something to play for. Seattle is a sneaky play moving forward.

Healthy CarGo:

1. Norichika Aoki (Royals): 45.8% ESPN, 42% CBS, 40% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 50 R, HR, 26 RBI, 13 SB, 273/343/341
Last 30 Days: 23 G, 14 R, HR, 12 RBI, 6 SB, 316/393/405
ZiPS (R): 37 G, 19 R, HR, 10 RBI, 5 SB, 277/338/356

While Aoki does not have the “wow” factor that fantasy owners want, he bats leadoff, is hot and will not hurt a team’s batting average. That is not exciting, but runs and stolen bases will be there along with some occasional power. The Royals have the best remaining schedule for hitters so why not have a leadoff hitter that will help in the coming days?

2. David Peralta (Diamondbacks): 19.6 ESPN, 38% CBS, 13% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 29 R, 5 HR, 29 RBI, 4 SB, 299/332/464
Last 30 Days: 23 G, 11 R, 2 HR, 13 RBI, 2 SB, 267/313/478
ZiPS (R): 32 G, 15 R, 3 HR, 15 RBI, 2 SB, 283/321/434

Unlike Aoki, Peralta has been hitting third for the Diamondbacks and his season and story have been successful thus far. Veteran scout Bernie Pleskoff loves him and I will jump on board. His stat line is the most like Carlos Gonzalez as he not only provides some pop, but can steal a base as well. In fact I could see a combo of 5 homers and steals each until the end of 2014.

3. Chris Coghlan (Cubs): 22.9% ESPN, 24% CBS, 30% Yahoo!

2014 Stats: 34 R, 6 HR, 23 RBI, 5 SB, 286/360/475
Last 30 Days: 24 G, 10 R, HR, 7 RBI, 1 SB, 318/383/494
ZiPS (R): 27 G, 11 R, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 2 SB, 258/329/399

How soon we forget, Chris Coghlan won the Rookie of the Year in 2009 and after an injury riddled career has resurfaced with the Cubs and is their primary leadoff hitter. He has provided a little pop and some steals which is what CarGo owners are looking to find. Only caveat here is that the Cubs are a boom or bust offense so this could make his production a bit streaky.

“First they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you’re out there
Walking in a storm

And when they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

Love on the rocks
Ain’t no big surprise
Just pour me a drink
And I’ll tell you my lies
Yesterday ‘s gone
Now all I want is a smile…”

I cannot say it better than Neil Diamond. When you love the Rockies, it can create love on the rocks as a fantasy owner. But they keep drawing us in…

Mark Buehrle vs. Houston Astros – Buerhle went 8 & 2/3 innings giving up only 4 hits and striking out 11 in his first start of the season. He faces an Astros team with the 2nd lowest run total in the AL. I look for him to pick up where he left off in his first start.

Matt Wieters vs. Ivan Nova – hitting .379 (11/29) with 3 2Bs, 4 HRs, 7 RBIs & 4 BBs
