Jeff Hoffman Surprisingly Polished in Return from Surgery

Details By Chris King

Published: May 29, 2015, 3:00 pm EDT

The Blue Jays’ farm got stronger last week, as last summer’s first-round pick, right-hander Jeff Hoffman, made his pro debut for High-A Dunedin. Hoffman was in the mix to go #1 overall last year until he underwent Tommy John surgery just before the draft and slid to ninth overall. The 6-foot-4 righty has the size […]

The Fringe Five: Baseball’s Most Compelling Fringe Prospects

Details By Carson Cistulli

Published: May 28, 2015, 2:21 pm EDT

The Fringe Five is a weekly regular-season exercise, introduced a couple years ago by the present author, wherein that same author utilizes regressed stats, scouting reports, and also his own fallible intuition to identify and/or continue monitoring the most compelling fringe prospects in all of baseball. Central to the exercise, of course, is a definition […]

Drew Hutchison Needs His Good Fastball

Details By Craig Edwards

Published: May 26, 2015, 1:02 pm EDT

Breakout candidates are often identified on the pitching side either on the strength of peripheral stats which portend improvement over more conventional numbers, a strong second half, or some demonstrative change in a pitch. Sometimes, the candidates fulfill expectations and make those who stumped for them look like geniuses. Most of the time, however, the […]

A Theory on Russell Martin’s Framing Numbers

Details By Miles Wray

Published: May 15, 2015, 12:01 pm EDT

Projection systems tend to look at reality a whole lot more soberly than us humans, who can fall madly in love with a player on the basis of aesthetic appeal alone. That’s why most offseason columns here at FanGraphs reviewing free-agent acquisitions tend to damper down instead of ramp up excitement. So it is a […]

Devon Travis Wants to Be the Rookie of the Year

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 28, 2015, 2:15 pm EDT

Let’s reflect on the FanGraphs staff predictions, shall we? Seems like a great idea for the 28th of April. Every single voter selected the Nationals to win the National League East. Okay, great start. Taijuan Walker got the most votes for the American League Rookie of the Year, and his ERA’s almost 7. Daniel Norris […]

Is the New Turf at the Rogers Centre Really a Problem?

Details By Owen Watson

Published: Apr 24, 2015, 2:00 pm EDT

The Blue Jays finished their first home stand of the season at the Rogers Centre yesterday, and the discussion surrounding the games has been a little strange so far. The talk has been about the performance of the team, who have started well, but it’s also been about the artificial turf that was installed this […]

Reworking the Blue Jays Pitching Staff

Details By Craig Edwards

Published: Apr 20, 2015, 10:00 am EDT

Making wholesale role changes two weeks into the season is not likely a sound strategy, as the decisions leading up to Opening Day take in much more reliable information with considerably more history than a few appearances in April. Likewise, taking promising starters who have yet to prove they cannot start and sending them to the bullpen […]

One Week With Kevin Pillar

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 3:05 pm EDT

You’ve probably seen what Kevin Pillar did on Wednesday. On the off chance you haven’t, we’ll get to that later, at the right time. Let this much be said now: it was absolutely extraordinary. But it also wasn’t the first Pillar highlight of the season. The guy who was supposed to lose time to Michael […]

The International Signing Market: Part 2

Details By Kiley McDaniel

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 12:30 pm EDT

Yesterday I shared notes about the 33 players that should sign on or just after July 2nd and project for seven figures. A common question from readers was if their team had other deals I knew of or if they were planning to go over their bonus pool. I saved part two of this series to […]

The Upside and Downside of Toronto’s Young Relievers

Details By Paul Swydan

Published: Apr 10, 2015, 10:00 am EDT

In Monday’s “Opening Day Staff Survey,” Dave said the storyline he was most looking forward to this season was, “Breaking in young pitching prospects as relievers.” This was a little bit vague, but he elucidated on it further later that day when he recorded his weekly podcast with Carson. If you skip to the 30-minute […]
