2020 Player Adds/Drops

Postby Kevin » Wed Feb 26, 2020 12:55 am

Here is the initial list of players who will be added to, and dropped from, the league roster for the 2020 season. We have over a week before the draft will begin next Thursday, so there is plenty of time to discuss some of the names on this list, or missing from it. I'm certainly open to suggestions.

Two things stick out about this year's add list. First, this rookie class has a chance to be an all-timer. There are a ton of potential superstars who will be rookies in the league this year. Even those of us picking near the back of the first round should like our chances of selecting an impact player. Second, there is an unusually high number of returning players from last year's cut list. Not sure what to make of that, exactly. But it was very noticeable when I started typing the names below.

Here are the changes for the upcoming season:

Yeah, I'd be willing to make that swap. To be honest, I hadn't really given Cordero much consideration because he was buried on the primary rankings list I was using. Santander was one of the last OF adds. I will consider it further, but there is a good chance I'll make this change.

Alright... I intend to make the draft player pool available later tonight. But first, I have a few changes to announce. First, as Marc requested, I'm going to leave Franchy Cordero in the league and Anthony Santander will not be added. Next, Emmanuel Clase is probably going to miss the first two months of the season. As a relief pitcher who isn't a closer, and may not even be the next in line for that job on his team, that makes him not very intriguing. So I'm going to replace him with his Indians teammate James Karinchak, who arguable could have been in ahead of Clase even without Clase's injury. Finally, I reserve the right to remove Griffin Canning later this week depending on what news comes out regarding his elbow injury. It sounds ominous to me, but I'm not going to drop him just yet. For planning purposes, the player who would take his place is another teammate situation. I will keep Julio Teheran in the league if Griffin is dropped.
