Annnnnd, he's out after 2.2 innings and one run. Topped out at 94, pretty straight.
Please explain why Kluber will likely be off the books in 2021.Bauer and Kluber will both likely be off the books in 2021, but at that time we may try to extend, Clev, Bieber, so our main three on paper would Carrasco, Clev, Bieber then have two of the best of the remaining talents we have in the system. In the end we may end up with the same amount of money tied into our starters, but we should have equal production at the bare minimum. We have setup a very good future pipeline wise for the starting pitching and I dont expect it to stop anytime soon.

He's still under contract and I'm fairly certain trading an ace like him is never "likely."
He was our lone representative in Keith Law’s midseason top 50 (at #50)There seems to be a pretty strong opinion that Nolan Jones is not going to be a 3B.
People might forget that he was pretty much evenly rated with Valera. He’s pretty advanced for a young switch hitter, and perhaps even more rare, he has good power from both sides already as a teen.Also.... add Aaron Bracho to the list of breakout prospects. Finished a double short of the cycle today. He and George Valera were the big money guys in the same July 2 class but Bracho was injured all last season which delayed his debut. Signed as a SS but has played 2B exclusively in AZ.
Only batting .250 but has 5 HR and more BB's (12) than K's (11) and an OPS of 1.042
I was at the FanGraphs meetup event at the Speakeasy on W 25th, where Kiley McDaniel and Eric Longenhagen were on the Q and A panel. I told them that I see Robinson Cano and a little Juan Soto in George Valera, and they laughed at that idea. Not so sure they will be laughing in a few years.
