Inaugural Draft Results: Andres Chavez

Our 8th pick (142 second overall) brought in right-handed starting pitcher Andres Chavez.



Andres was drafted with the intention of keeping him in the minors for most of the season. Ultimately, he had to step it up early and is currently holding the number four spot in our rotation. Chavez is clearly the weak-spot; he is the only starter without a positive WAR (though at least its not negative), the only starter with a losing...

Inaugural Draft Results: Matt Lyons

Posted 01-16-2015 at 03:46 PM by absurddoctor

On to round 7! Overall pick number 111 brought right-handed starting pitcher Matt Lyons to the Boston Barristas.



Back to Boston I should say. His history is another peculiar story. In the initial 2015 inaugural draft, he went in the 7th round (pick 14, 110 overall). It looks like he had a 1-year five million dollar contract, because he was a free agent at the end of the season. 2015,2016, and 2017 all saw him pick up on...

Inaugural Draft Results: Bill Cooper

Our round 6 pick (106th overall) went to SP prospect Bill Cooper.



Five-pitch pitchers always attract me, especially if they are all at least decent pitches. The fifth pitch which can't be seen in the screenshot is a Forkball, currently rated at 45/60.

Cooper's case is a weird one. He was the 8th pick in Round 1 of the 2017 draft (going to the Jacksonville Twins). He pitched 2.2 innings for their AA team that...

Inaugural Draft Results: Bryan Davis

Our fifth pick (75th overall) went to right fielder Bryan Davis.



Bryan was drafted by the previous Boston GM as the 7th pick in Supplemental Round 1, so while he seems to have lost some stock, he did at least get to avoid moving with this draft (unlike most other players).

Bryan was the runner-up for Rookie of the Year last year. In spite of that, he still seems to expect to be warming the bench, so has been...

Inaugural Draft Results: Eddie Rogers

Posted 01-16-2015 at 02:10 PM by absurddoctor

Our fourth pick (70th overall) went to Eddie Rogers, another prospect looked at for his potential ability with a bat, not his fielding skills.



Eddie is more a gamble than Gaskill, as he is almost completely lacking in plate discipline at this point. However, his very intelligent, works his tail off, and seems to have the drive needed to improve. It is a gamble I would take again, though it seems difficult to believe there...
