Last Sleeper List Update

New, 10 comments

Here is the final updates for the pre-season sleeper list.

In general, I still find it easier to pick out pitching sleepers than hitting sleepers.

Carlos Ramirez, C, Los Angles Angels: Horrible year, .176/.308/.289 for Class A Cedar Rapids. Unusually strong platoon splits: killing lefties at .289/.426/.579, but right-handers murder him at .135/.262/.183.

Jose Ramirez, RHP, New York Yankees: 3.44 ERA, 65/23 K/BB in 71 innings for Class A Charleston, 61 hits, zero homers. Looks good right now.

Wilking Rodriguez, RHP, Tampa Bay Rays: 4.14 ERA, 69/16 K/BB in 74 innings for Class A Bowling Green, 75 hits allowed. Like the K/BB ratio, other numbers decent.

Rusty Ryal, INF, Arizona Diamondbacks: Hitting .286/.342/.386 in 48 games for the Diamondbacks. Don't like the 3/21 BB/K, but he's held his own in limited ction and I wish he'd get to play more.

Eduardo Sanchez, RHP, St. Louis Cardinals: 3.38 ERA with 26/8 K/BB in 24 innings for Double-A Springfield, 19 hits allowed, 1.81 GO/AO, nine saves. Fine season so far.

Juan Silva, OF, Cincinnati Reds: Hasn't played this year.

Jonathan Singleton, 1B, Philadelphia Phillies: Excellent season for Class A Lakewood, .369/.459/.631, 22 walks, 25 strikeouts in 130 at-bats. Very impressive and, I believe, genuine. Was a steal in the eighth round last year.

Andrew Taylor, LHP, Los Angeles Angels: 2.06 ERA, 39/14 K/BB in 35 innings, 24 hits allowed for Double-A Arkansas, lefties hitting .167 against him. Stuff is good enough that he can get beyond LOOGY role if the command is there.

Ashur Tolliver, LHP, Baltimore Orioles: Shoulder problems kept him in extended spring training, expected to pitch in the NY-P soon.

Matt Way, LHP, Philadelphia Phillies: 3.49 ERA, 75/20 K/BB in 77 innings for Class A Lakewood, 72 hits. He's very polished, but we need to see at higher levels.

Allen Webster, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers: 3.11 ERA, 66/25 K/BB in 67 innings, 57 hits for Class A Great Lakes. Impressive thus far.
