    Welcome back to Razzball Hitter Profiles for the 2022 Fantasy Baseball season.  We will be rattling through interesting names every Saturday as we roll up to the regular season.  We are not talking the top hitters, because you really do not need me to tell you that Juan Soto can hit, or that Trea Turner can run.  You need that like Nelson Cruz needs to play the outfield.  Just because it can be do...2022

    Happy New Year, Razzballers!

    I call this year's fantasy baseball sleepers,"Rookies that failed to impress last year." Okay, not all, but Alex Kirilloff is clearly in the same boat as Jarred Kelenic and Andrew Vaughn. By the by, before we start, I can't properly express how much I must like Alex Kirilloff, because spelling his last name over and over again is like trying to pat my head and rub my stomach at the same time.

    It seems to me that the nature of the beast when discussing prospects is you get a lot of: Here's what I said previously when he was supposed to be called up already. Unlike most prospects, Josh Jung wasn't kept in the minors simply for service time reasons. Josh Jung was ticketed for the majors this past preseason until he hurt his foot. Jung, man, no need to be bruised. Here’s what Prospect Itch...2021

    San Francisco Giants closer Jake McGee was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday afternoon with an oblique strain. Big Jake has racked up 31 saves this year, and paired with some stellar ratios (2.72, 0.91 WHIP) has been a big part of how solid this bullpen has been all season long. Welp, that’s over now but the Giants’ season certainly isn’t and for a first place team fighting to avoid the Wil...2021

    Bailey Ober gave up a lot of home runs. 20, to be exact. That was only in 92 1/3 IP. His 1.95 HR/9 made me choke on my boba. That alone is a crime punishable by "not getting a fantasy baseball sleeper post written for him." Bailey Ober's pitches generated a 19.7 Launch Angle.

    It's a rare occurrence when a Yankees player is a sleeper. I can count the instances on one finger, the same finger I use to point at my mustache, my mustache-pointing finger. In 1984, Don Mattingly was coming off a 4-homer, .283 season, and everyone admired his mustache, but thought his bat was too weak to stick at 1st base. "He's no Cecil Cooper," they'd say.

It didn't mean that, but if the Tigers sign Carole Baskin, the Pirates will trade Bryan Reynolds to the Tigers for her. So, the Tigers signed Javier Baez, and I love...2021

    Bit of a trivia question off the top: who were the last two big-time Yankees prospects who weren't overrated. Aaron Judge is quick to mind. Who else?

Still a pretty good trade for the fish considering Stanton’s ...2021

Well, maybe not it it, but it is close enough to it. That it is in the It Crowd. In the big broad, general sense. If the player is in the 2nd category, then I'm not going to cover them.

    The notion of a closer’s role has evolved over the years, but there’s never been any doubt of the importance of a reliable late-inning relief strategy.

    Wait! Before you close the window, just give me a chance! Come back! Everyone's gone, huh? *yells, hears echo* Welp, I guess I'm doing this 2022 fantasy baseball sleeper post for myself. I get it, Jeimer Candelario is mega boring. If Jeimer Candelario were an NFT, he'd be a jpeg of beige. If I am properly understanding what an NFT is, and that's at like 25% odds.

    This is the 2nd Angels outfielder that I've pegged as a 2022 fantasy baseball sleeper. What's the chances that comes to fruition? Zero? Can you do negative odds? Last year I pegged Jared Walsh as a sleeper, and he broke out. This year I like two. What can I tell you, I'm a dumb man. At least I think Luis Rengifo is still very terrible. Having Mike Trout (I think, he still plays, right?) and Shohei...2021
  • • Toronto Blue Jays Top 10 Prospects for 2022 Fantasy Baseball
    It’s tough to see how things get better than they were in 2021. Robbie Ray and Marcus Semien were grand slam one-year signings. Vladimir Guerrero chased a triple crown. Alek Manoah dominated as a rookie. Jose Berrios pitched well down the stretch after the club swapped two top prospects to get him. And therein lies the upside. The club was able to sign Berrios to a long-term deal, and I have a har...2021

    It didn’t end the way they would’ve liked, but the Red Sox had a wonderful season, channeling some Tampa Bay ways with the help of Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom and employing smart management on the field with the help of Alex Cora. When the club signed Enrique Hernandez, few would have predicted a 4 (3.9) WAR season punctuated by a monster playoff run (.408/.423/.837 with 5 HR), but I feel p...2021

    Nobody beats the book like Houston. Their prospect lists require close-reading and separate buckets of research because you don’t want to miss Jose Urquidy or Luis Garcia if you don’t have to. Jake Meyers and Chas McCormick both popped from relative obscurity onto fantasy baseball rosters in 2021, and that looks like the way it’s going to go with Astros’ prospects. I don’t know what it is that kee...2022

No shame in that, I'd do it again if I had the chance. At the backend of the top 100 for the 2nd half, you gotta go risky ishkabibble vs. safe whose-he-whatsies. Vidal Brujan was called up right before the break last year, so I figured we were ...2021

Shortstops are not as deep as 2nd basemen. The 2nd basemen benefited from some guys (Semien, Trea) getting 2nd base eligibility, but it still leaves the shortstops, a position considered extremely deep, shallower. *si...2021
