Baltimore has the goods

Paul Fry, 2021 percentile rankings

Why buying?

  • He’s impossible to barrel

Why not buying?

  • He lacks control

Trade value: average

With all ups and downs, Fry is the one reliever of the trio who could be somewhat cheap, earning more than the other two being in arbitration but still a bargain, he has scary splits and tendencies but also an uncanny ability of avoiding damage and a death sentence against LHB.

Cole Sulser, 2021 percentile rankings

Why buying?

  • He has a demonic changeup

Why not buying?

  • His stuff is garden variety

Trade value: moderate, slightly above average

Sulser’s newfound ability to strike out a gazillion by means of his changeup makes him an interesting RHP option for every pen, one that has late game experience, years of control and minimum impact on the payroll.

Tanner Scott, 2021 percentile rankings

Why buying?

  • He’s the rare 80 Stuff 80 Movement guy

Why not buying?

  • He has no idea where it’s going

Trade value: who the hell knows!?

I have no idea how to consider Scott: he has unreal stuff, a long track record, has still to go to arbitration and provides rare lefty heat without the matchup constraint, but he’s also unbelievably wild and hard to tame.
