  2. It could have been better: I just found out his Edwin’s full name is Edwin Elpidio Encarnacion. E3!!!!!! Serendipitous. If only he was a first baseman (and he might soon be haha).

  3. OK, the O’s are calling up Corey Patterson. He may slide right into the leadoff spot. My AL-Only league plays OBP, and of course SBs are valuable. Anyone think he might have found an at least Fountain of Youth?

  4. Saunders .273/.358/.430 would fly in most deeper leagues, and would more than likely be better than your 3rd or 4th OF even in shallow mixed leagues. If that prediction is to be believed, of course; he’ll probably hit for lower average but higher slugging than the prediction.

  5. I just picked him up in my AL-Only league. I’ll admit I did it based on his physical size as well as early results- seems he probably has the potential to hit for power.

  6. Does he remind you any bit of Richie Sexson (hopefully the productive version)?

  7. Thanks for the good stuff. The other writer will be eating his words when Medlen takes off with the starters job and runs with it. He WILL be a hot pick-up in other leagues come mid-June I predict.

  8. @Colman: agreed. Medlen will be a full time and high quality starter for the Braves this year. Breakout.

  10. That slash line was less a prediction than a translation of his minor league stats with luck and park effects taken out. If they represent his true talent level in the minor leagues, we’ll have to temper our expectations. Big Sexy had a lot more power… but Saunders is still young.

  11. Not starting a feud – love Mike’s work. More often than not, caution is the right response. ON the other hand, there’s a lot to like in Medlen.
