Always liked Touki Toussaint, hope he can get hooked up with an organization that can help him get that little bit of control that seems to keep him from holding a regular rotation spot.

I hope the Cubs jump on Luke Voit. What's he gonna cost $7-8 this year, maybe $10 next year. Might even get him in the door on a 2/$14 deal. As long as they spend the savings on him relative to Abreu elsewhere.

I'm not sure what the Cubs are thinking on Ortega. He's been useful and is still just a super-2, I can't imagine he'd cost more than $1.5-2. There are going to be OF PAs available.

Yarbrough is interesting but I see he's had significant HR problems the last couple of years. Still you could probably do worse for #5 starter. Alfaro seems like another pretty obvious guy to pick up unless he's the Jackson Pollock of pitch framing or something -- somewhere between solid backup and average C for $3 M, the Cubs could use that.

And sure, the Cubs could use Bellinger at the right price too.

I've always been intrigued by Alex Young as a fulltime reliever, but he didn't strike out many guys last year with the Giants. I would have loads of interest in a healthy Josh James. The Dom Smith trajectory has been depressing; apparently the Rays have interest in him so maybe they'll sign him and he'll become a great hitter.

This strikes me as a pretty uninteresting list. Bellinger will get a deal of course but he's not good right now. Alex Reyes is hurt and probably needs to agree to a two year deal to make this worthwhile for anyone. I love Aquino's arm in the OF but that's not a good enough reason to sign him. Alfaro may be a good get for someone who needs the back half of a catching duo. Voit is definitely a good buy for a team that needs a HR threat at DH.

Biggest suprises to me are Jackson Stephens and Art Warren - both pre-arb, options remaining, some success in MLB. I get that their teams probably needed to clear a 40 man slot, but still. After that, Jarlin Garcia - about as reliable as a non-elite RP can be. Ortega and Edwin Rios are also useful and cheap.

Kind of a given that the non-tender list will be uninteresting -- the "big" names are a list of players that teams don't think are likely to even be worth their arb salaries but they also couldn't find anybody else interested enough to give them a mini-prospect in return; the little names are a list of players teams don't have room for on their 40-man (and nobody was willing to give them a sub-mini-prospect). As a former MVP and RoY, I wouldn't be surprised if Bellinger is the "biggest" name in non-tender history (with the possible exception of injured pitchers ... e.g. I think Mark Prior was non-tendered at some point).

There was the 2021 bubble where it seems all the AL & NL Central teams freaked out about covid revenues and felt the need to non-tender at least one $10 M OF. How interesting Kyle Schwarber, Eddie Rosario, Joc Pederson, etc. are is in the eye of the beholder.

Cleveland Guardians: LHP Anthony Gose

Yes, folks, he's still around.
   8. McCoy Posted: November 20, 2022 at 06:38 PM (#6106259)
He was on my OOTP13 team. Traded for him and he and Rock Shoulders powered my team to some WS titles and both got a trip to the HoF out of it.

I had never heard of Texas Rangers' RHP Nick Snyder. He was a 19th-round draft pick awhile back who hasn't pitched much or well above AA, but still, to get to AAA and even five innings in the major leagues, that is something to have achieved as a pro ballplayer.

Brailyn Marquez was a top 100 prospect just 18 months ago, but he hasn't pitched in two years. Would be a nice low-cost gamble.

I will still believe in Touki Toussant no matter how many teams he fails with.

Josh James misses bats but can't find the plate.

Brailyn Marquez was a top 100 prospect just 18 months ago, but he hasn't pitched in two years. Would be a nice low-cost gamble.

Really three years, as he only pitched 2/3 of an inning in the Covid year. He's thrown 257 innings combined over the last 7 seasons with only that weird 2/3 of an inning above high A. He'll be 24 at the start of the season. Sure, he had great stuff once, and I guess he could be the next Jameson Taillon. Great prospect, hurt forever, eventually becomes a serviceable big leaguer, but that seems like a longshot. It's a shame. The stories of the lefty in single A who touched 100 were very exciting for a Cubs fan in 2019.
