    Welcome to the 2018 version of Little names, Big Games.
    [​IMG]
    1B Cole Frenzel - NYA
    34 HR(1st) - .392 wOBA(6th) - 92 RBI (2nd)
    In the 2017 offseason, the Yankees made a risky signing of Cole (5yrs/36M). Cole had talent but was 26 years old without any Major League experience and the move was highly criticized. Cole has shut up the naysayers and rewarded the Yankees for the risk with his great play this year.

    RF Arthur Lawson - MIN
    .396OBP(6th) - 41 2B(1st) - 76 Runs(3rd)
    Drafted 19th overall in 2015, Lawson has quickly turned into one of the superstars in the American League. At 21 years of age, the sweet swinging lefty looks to be a force for many years to come.

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria - CHA
    .400 OBP(5th) - SS Ranks - AVG(2nd),wOBA(1st),WAR(1st)
    Adeiny came over in the big Sale trade a year ago. A career .300wOBA hitter has come into his own at the age of 29. Hechavarria plays an exceptional defensive SS and now has added an elite SS bat to his game.

    1B Mickey Wiswall - SEA
    .318 AVG(4th) - .542 SLG(5th) - 4.1 WAR(7th)
    This is the 4th season where Wiswall has put up very good #'s. Yet, when people talk about the great players in the Dugout, Wiswall is always left out. The 29 year old slugger is putting together his best season on the best team in baseball at the moment, time to take notice.

    SP Terry Watson - BAL
    2.09 ERA - 3.39 FIP - 41K/15BB
    Watson, a 4th round pick in 2013, has really given a jolt to the Orioles rotation. The rotation was in such shambles that they even gave Gavin Floyd money to play baseball but Watson got the call up and instantly stabilized the back end. Not the strongest stuff in the league, topping out at 92 MPH, Terry relies on extreme movement to induce groundballs at a 65% rate.

    RP Scott Zuloaga - HOU
    1.94 ERA - 52K/8BB - 2.84 FIP
    The 28 year old first year player has been nothing but spectacular in one of the best bullpens in baseball. This .5 Star is out to prove that star ratings only look good on paper but you still have to produce in games. His 6.5 K/BB is by far leading the AL relievers this year.

    Was Frenzel the one who had like 50 home runs in triple a last year?

    Also, Terry Watson is a BAMF. He should be the AL ROY. He was also born and raised in Baltimore before moving out and going all the way to Baltimore County for college. Of course a guy like that is a winner.

    Frenzel is worth every penny and more. I was worried for a while last season, but he really came on at the end of the year, and then this season has been amazing.
