Dropping off: Tyler Wade (67th), Andrew Velazquez (71st), Mauricio Dubón (78th), Lenyn Sosa (79th), Rodolfo Castro (80th)

  • Kyle Farmer has been adequate, but the Reds have correctly deduced that it's time to see what Jose Barrero can do in Cincinnati. Long the Reds' shortstop of the future, Barrero's future is murkier now as a result of Elly De La Cruz's ascendance and the acquisition of two top shortstop prospects in the Luis Castillo trade with the Mariners. He also missed the first month and a half of this year with a broken hamate bone, and he'd struggled offensively (as can happen) since his return, batting .209/.282/.377 in 55 games. Barrero offers plenty of power potential and quality defense at short. OBP is the question mark. He's probably not going to be a mixed-league guy this year, but he could be next season if he establishes himself.

  • The Guardians opted to give Tyler Freeman his first call-up Wednesday after he hit .280//371/.364 in 343 plate appearances for Triple-A Columbus. Freeman is a fine prospect who should have a lengthy career as a regular, but his fantasy potential is limited by a lack of home run power and stolen base ability. He's not going to take playing time away from Amed Rosario or Andres Gimenez in the short term, so he's not one to worry about now.
