The Dynasty Digest: July 19, 2023
Chris Clegg runs down all of Tuesday's action that you need to know for dynasty.
It was a bad day to be a pitcher on Tuesday, as I think more home runs were hit than any day this year. But there were still some bright spots, plus we saw some bats do big things that are highly relevant for dynasty. Let’s get to the names.
Bubba Chandler, RHP, PIT, 20, A+
Chandler has had an up-and-down season which is largely evident by his 6.22 ERA across 68 innings, but the good news for Pirates fans is, the stuff is really good. There has been a ton of batted ball back-luck, which is evident by a .412 BABIP, and the xFIP sits at 4.59. Not the most encouraging number in the world, but let’s talk about the stuff.
The fastball is Chandler’s bread and butter, sitting 96-98 mph and holding deep into starts. It gets a ton of ride at the top of the zone, and he was sitting around 18 inches of IVB on the Trackman in his start in Greenville. His slider sat in the upper 80’s and reached up to 17 inches of sweep on it. The changeup was firm and sat 89-91 mph. Chandler’s arsenal is really good, and Pirates fans and fantasy managers alike should be patient as Chandler was a multi-sport prep star who was going to play QB at Clemson AND he was a two-way baseball player as both a SS and RHP. He is focusing on pitching for the first time in his career; results will come.
Coby Mayo, 3B, BAL, 21, AAA
Mayo has been on an insane heater this year and is proving to be one of baseball's top dynasty prospects. I ranked him 12th in my latest update, but I wonder if he should occupy the 10th spot Colt Keith currently sits in.
Now in Triple-A, Mayo mashed his first home run with Norfolk on Tuesday, leaving the bat at 103.8 mph, and he also had an additional batted ball of 110 mph. Mayo is up to 18 home runs on the season in 82 games and is showing strong plate discipline skills. He is going to play up in an OBP league but still post solid batting averages while having 30 home runs potential.
Christian Scott, RHP, NYM, 24, AA
I’ll just put it out there; I think Scott might be the best pitcher in the Mets system. The converted relief pitcher out of the University of Florida is thriving in a starter’s role with the Mets and showing he can go deep into games. On Tuesday, Scott fired seven innings(tied for a career-high) with eight strikeouts and zero walks.
Scott induced 20 whiffs which was led by his mid-90s fastball that gets up to 98 mph. He pounds the strike zone and has a strike rate of 66 percent. He throws a nice changeup away from lefties but also has a dominant curve and slider. There is still time to get in on Scott in dynasty, but I would do it soon.
