Dropping off: Josh Hamilton (75th), Socrates Brito (95th), Tyler Naquin (107th), Scott Schebler (109th), Dustin Ackley (111th), Jerry Sands (119th), Alex Presley (120th), Alex Rios (125th), Anthony Gose (128th)

 

  • It looks like Orioles manager Buck Showalter is coming to terms with the idea that Kim, not Rickard, is his best option in left field. Kim hasn’t showed much of a power stroke, but there’s a lot to like about his approach at the plate. I’m just not sure it will translate into mixed-league value without much in the way or homers or steals.

 

  • I don’t think the Twins could have left Buxton in the minors much longer anyway, but they were forced to promote him Monday as a result of Danny Santana’s strained hamstring. It’s an obvious upgrade. Buxton was hitting .333/.402/.605 in 127 at-bats for Triple-A Rochester, and while I don’t think he’s ready to excel offensively in the majors, he’ll be better than Santana offensively and especially defensively.

 

  • Alexei Bell was recently cleared to sign by MLB, and he’s currently playing in Mexico, going 6-for-31 with a homer and two doubles in his first eight games. He’s a little past his prime at age 32, but he was one of Cuba’s best hitters in his heyday and he still could be interesting in a corner spot for some team (the Angels?).
