Welp, we were supposed to start our fantasy baseball sleepers today, but there was some movement before the lockout. *looks in the toilet* "Hey, we got movement!" By the way, for those of you who didn't hear my thoughts on the impending lockout, you can listen to the last episode of our fantasy baseball podcast. Basically, I expect them to go to their separate corners. Owners will cry poor; players will cry that the owners are crying poor, which will be accurate, and then they'll come back. My guess is we lose about a week of the season and gain the NL DH. It will seem dire, because a lot of reporters are on team payrolls and they're paid to make it seem dire. It won't be as dire as it seems, unless we get to May and still no baseball. Bright side of that would be Acu a will be ready for Opening Day. Lowercase yay! Any hoo! We'll start the sleepers as soon as teams stop signing big free agents -- we (I) did start my 2022 fantasy baseball rankings on our Patreon, by the by. The Mets went out and got Mark Canha and Starling Marte, as they remade their outfield. The A s did their best to change their culture, club wasn't working around players like Canha and Kaprelian but those windows of opportunity come and go. They come and go. Boy, Jorge Soler would fit nicely there. The best thing about the addition of Mark Canha and Starling Marte is they push Dominic Smith and Jeff McNeil to the bench-slash-platoon-Slash-Axl. Remember when there were people who thought some random 60-game stretch of Dom Smith meant he was good? Haha, those people were almost as dumb as the people who drafted Cody Bellinger last year. Hey, wait, that's me! Jeff McNeil actually pulled the wool over our eyes in a full season, but he was never really good either. On a related note, the Mets cornered the market on Micks who hit weak grounders. Between McCann and McNeil, they hit about as hard as the IRA, if the Irish Republican Army was modeled after everything they read about IRAs on Charles Schwab. Any hoo! Canha should fit perfectly in with the Mets, because Mets' fans need a good sense of humor so Canha helps. Can't really be a laughingstock without a Starling ability to Canha. Canha's 20.5% strikeout rate with a .231 average is a little bit of a concern. Couple that with his .274 and solid speed paints a picture of a guy who makes weak contact. McCann, McNeil and now M.C. are gonna bloop other teams to death. Seriously, Canha's peripherals indicate some pretty weak contact, and backing that up was the 35th worst Hard Contact% in the league. His Launch Angle came down a little, which was prolly better for him, as it led to a few less weak fly balls, even if they're more like weak bloopers to the 2nd baseman. For 2022, I'll give Mark Canha projections of 73/21/64/.239/10 in 571 ABs. That was the longest Mark Canha breakdown ever, because it was really just a giant stall for me, before tackling Starling Marte. A 33-year-old who just matched his career high at 47 steals. That's not even taking into account the very real evil eye the universe gives to all players who sign with the Mets. Ugh. I promised myself that I wouldn't be an ageist anymore. I wouldn't write off players just because they're old, but I sorted by all the players who were 33 years old who stole 47 bags or more, and there were 21 seasons of them since 1914 with 13 players. Seven of those were Lou Brock and Rickey Henderson. Guess what I'm saying is, after much deliberation about not worrying about a player's age in regards to steals, I am still doing exactly that. Marte also had a .372 BABIP. It's too simplistic to say the Mets just got had. Not as simplistic as saying a guy is old and his BABIP was high, but do you see why I was stalling? In the end, here's the thing, there's so many players to choose from, that you don't have to be right or wrong on some guys, you can just ignore them, and that's what I think I'm gonna be doing with Starling Marte. As far as his lineup slot, I will say the Mets have more number twos than a public toilet. If I were the Mets manager, and the Mets had a manager, I'd start the lineup Marte, Canha, Lindor, Alonso, but where are you finding Nimmo a spot? Maybe a trade with Miami, since he's a fish at heart. For 2022, I'll give Starling Marte projections of 89/19/61/.277/32 in 534 ABs. Anyway, here s what else I saw this offseason for 2022 fantasy baseball:
Major League Baseball's non-tender deadline is scheduled for Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET and, with it, some players will become free agents as teams look to avoid their rising arbitration costs.Notable names hit the open market every year. The 2020 list included Kyle Schwarber, Paul Sewald, and NLCS MVP Eddie Rosario.Let's take a look at some key players who could find themselves searching for a new club before the current collective bargaining agreement expires. Some names are more bold than others. Cody Bellinger, Dodgers John W. McDonough / Sports Illustrated / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 95 10 36 .542 -0.8 Projected salary in arbitration: $16.1 millionThe likelihood of Bellinger hitting the open market might be higher if he played for a club more cash-strapped than the Dodgers. However, L.A. has gobs of cash and will almost certainly retain its former MVP, even if that means a hefty one-year price tag for a player who was below replacement level last year.There's a slight chance the Dodgers cut ties from him. First, Bellinger's shoulder surgery could impact Los Angeles' decision if the team believes it'll potentially cause lingering issues next season. Second, perhaps the Dodgers look into their crystal ball and see that the new CBA includes a salary cap. These are slim chances and likely won't affect its verdict, but L.A. needs to consider these variables with the deadline looming.Tyler Glasnow, Rays Douglas P. DeFelice / Getty Images Sport / Getty IP ERA FIP WHIP WAR 88 2.66 2.77 0.93 2.5 Projected salary in arbitration: $5.8 millionThe Rays are notoriously frugal, and Glasnow is slated to be sidelined for most, if not all, of 2022. That being said, he's still the ace of their staff and was a Cy Young front-runner before suffering his injury last year. If Tampa really wants to save the money owed to the right-hander, it would likely be worth it to retain Glasnow through the non-tender deadline and then trade him.Adam Duvall, Braves Rob Carr / Getty Images Sport / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 146 38 113 .772 2.4 Projected salary in arbitration: $9.1 millionThe Braves could non-tender Duvall for a second straight season. The slugger posted similar numbers to his 2020 campaign after Atlanta acquired him at last season's trade deadline - his second stint with the club. The team let him walk before last year's tender deadline because he was expected to earn at least $4 million in arbitration. That figure projects to more than double this time around.Jesus Aguilar, Marlins Mark Brown / Getty Images GP HR RBI OPS WAR 131 22 93 .788 1.2 Projected salary in arbitration: $7.4 millionAguilar was seen as a potential non-tender candidate in 2020 as well, but the slugger and Marlins avoided arbitration with a one-year, $4.35-million deal. Now, after contributing similar production, Aguilar is expected to get a roughly 40% raise. In an offseason where the Pittsburgh Pirates have already given Yoshi Tsutsugo $4 million, maybe Aguilar is worth that. However, first basemen with Aguilar's skill set aren't especially rare, so Miami could look elsewhere to keep costs low.Manuel Margot, Rays Mike Ehrmann / Getty Images Sport / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 125 10 57 .696 1.4 Projected salary in arbitration: $5.0 millionMargot's 2021 campaign was a far cry from his 2020 playoff performance when he posted five home runs, 11 RBIs, and a .896 OPS. With the 27-year-old projected to earn $5 million through arbitration, it wouldn't be surprising if the Rays non-tender him since he's only posted an OPS above .696 once in his career. The Dominican's play on the other side of the ball - 13 defensive runs saved last season - might be enough to save his job.Josh Bell, Nationals Michael Reaves / Getty Images Sport / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 144 27 88 .823 1.4 Projected salary in arbitration: $10 millionBell's first season in Washington got off to a slow start, but the slugger turned it on from June to season's end, setting him up for a sizable raise through arbitration. The Nationals aren't presently in a position to contend, meaning Bell's hefty salary might be too rich for their blood. However, he's still relatively young, and his bat complements Juan Soto better than any of the first basemen available in free agency not named Freddie Freeman.Victor Robles, Nationals Adam Hunger / Getty Images Sport / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 107 2 19 .605 -0.5 Projected salary in arbitration: $1.7 millionRobles, a former top prospect, has failed to live up to expectations. The projected $1.7 million likely won't stop Washington from keeping a speedy center fielder who hit a promising .258/.328/.430 over 176 games between 2018-19 while accruing 3.1 WAR. However, he's essentially become a defensive replacement behind Lane Thomas, so the rebuilding Nats could look to prioritize other areas. If so, Robles has a tantalizing enough set of tools that another team would be eager to give him a shot.Gary Sanchez, Yankees Sean M. Haffey / Getty Images Sport / Getty GP HR RBI OPS WAR 117 23 54 .730 1.5 Projected salary in arbitration: $7.9 millionIt's been a while since Sanchez dominated opposing pitching, but he still showed flashes of his old self last season with 23 homers. Still, questions remain about his offensive consistency, as well as his lingering defensive issues. A few things may be working in Sanchez's favor, though. New York's internal catching options aren't great, free agency is thin at catcher, and $7.9 million isn't much for the Yankees to spend on one more shot with the Dominican backstop.Copyright © 2021 Score Media Ventures Inc.
