The Decline of David Fletcher

We’ve never really paid much attention to Angel infielder David Fletcher — to our detriment in 2019 and 2020, but not so much since then.

We’re not sure why he didn’t enter our consciousness more, but we’re here with a closer look now to rectify this.

Fletcher enjoyed a solid rookie effort in 2018, putting up some decent counting cats in a half season, so perhaps 2019 should never have crept up on us as a surprise, but it did.

In his first full campaign, he showed more extra-base sock and a vastly improved walk rate, and while he may not have been much of a help to Fantasy owners in homers or steals, he offered enough in runs and BA to be useful, and even valuable in OBP leagues. Fletcher’s contact skills were off the charts, with only Hanser Alberto proving harder to strike out in 2019. Oh, and did we mention Fletcher has some serious defensive chops (at least in the virtual world… see video below)?

In 2020, he took his on-base skills to the next level, proving his emergence the season before was no fluke. By this point, Fletcher looked like the new Mark Loretta (a player who, back in the day, was once a hero for the Los Angeles Dodgers).

But then came last year, and while Fletcher saw more action than ever, actually proved more useful as a source of speed (15 thefts), and improved his contact rates, his chief allure — on-base skills — regressed dramatically, pulling most of his value with it.

So far this season, things have gotten even worse as his OBP is just .220, and perhaps we now know why:

It’s quite reasonable to assume that a core muscle problem like this was behind Fletcher’s declining results. Which begs the question: when he returns around the All-Star break, could he be closer to his 2019-20 form? If so, this is a second half sleeper to consider.

In the meantime, Luis Rengifo — one of a few Angels that has a chance to take advantage of Fletcher’s injury — is a whole lot more interesting. Rengifo has posted a .375 OBP in a very small sample size this year, but considering his minor league career mark is .361, it’s not out of scope. Rengifo is young enough to have upside, and he’s flashed more power and speed potential than Fletcher.

Still, assuming Fletcher isn’t a write-off for 2022, we’ll be following his progress very closely as the second half nears as he has the potential to be a very fruitful addition for the stretch run.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

Originally from London, England, Deep Purple helped develop both heavy metal and hard rock. In 1971, the band planned to record Machine Head at the Montreux Casino in Switzerland, but the building burned down during a Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention show. Hence the backstory to Deep Purple’s classic “Smoke on the Water,” one of the greatest songs in rock history.

2022 NFL Draft: Top Five QB Prospects

April 21, 2022 | by Cody Cook | Comments Comments Off on 2022 NFL Draft: Top Five QB Prospects
Similar to Willis, Pickett is ready to start on a pro team for our money, but where he lands will dictate his Fantasy value. If Pickett winds up in Seattle, for instance, his ability to pass the ball downfield would work perfectly with the Seahawks’ compliment of receivers (what sounds better: Lock to Lockett or Pickett to Lockett?). Pickett has the tools to lead an NFL team to a winning record and the size to be a viable pocket presence, capable of flawlessly throwing the ball wherever he needs to.

2021 NFL Draft Preview: Top Five Tight End Prospects

April 7, 2021 | by Lucas Chan | Comments Comments Off on 2021 NFL Draft Preview: Top Five Tight End Prospects
Baltimore needs to pass more, regardless of what formation. If it wants to continue its three-TE tendencies and stretch the field, then Tremble is the best option — especially given how the Ravens have a history of developing tight ends. The Saints, the other hand, don’t particularly need more pass-catchers, but they do need someone fast inside. In a best-case scenario, if Tremble goes to Baltimore, we could be looking at 60 catches, 800 yards, and 6-to-8 touchdowns.
