The Daily Farm Report (7/5)

Welcome to the July 5th installment of The Daily Farm Report! We rake the news for each organization’s top prospects and give you a digest with some commentary for you greedy prospectors to enjoy. Here’s some recent news and highlights:

Tom Eshelman
Phillies #12 by MLB Pipeline

Eshelman allowed 1 earned run over 7 innings while striking out 7. This is a definite improvement from his recent form. He’s had a rough year at AAA, going 1-7 with a 6.28 ERA and 1.81 WHIP. He doesn’t strike out enough batters to give himself any margin for error (16% K-rate in 2018). If you are still holding Eshelman, there are far better options for you to own in your dynasty league.

Luis Garcia
Nationals #5 by MLB Pipeline

Another young Nats prospect to get hyped about. Garcia, still only 18, has performed well enough to deserve the promotion to A-Advanced ball. He’s a left-handed hitting 2B with some speed and some raw power, but he might be a better real-life prospect than fantasy prospect. That being said, he has tons of time to see if the raw power will translate into game power. He’s a ‘watch list’ guy for now for those of you in deep dynasty leagues.

Jimmy Lambert
WhiteSox #29 by MLB Pipeline
Baseball Farm Roto #89 Overall

Jimmy Lambert keeps his strong 2018 season rolling with a win in his first start for AA Birmingham. With the rash of injuries suffered by White Sox pitching prospects this season, it’s nice to see players like Lambert stepping up and taking advantage of their opportunity. He’s now the #89 overall pitcher in all of the minors according to our own weighted roto rankings. Unfortunately for Jimmy, one of the pitchers that he is chasing is his younger brother…

Peter Lambert
Rockies #3 by MLB Pipeline
21 Peter Lambert (Rockies AAA P 21 yr) | 2.23 era | 0.99 whip | 75 so | 6.25 kbb | 0.54 hr9 |

Jimmy Lambert’s younger brother Peter is doing his best to prove which of the Lambert bros is the better pitching prospect. Just 21, Peter made his first AAA start for Albuquerque on the 4th of July, working an efficient 6 innings and allowing 2 earned runs. Peter has the better prospect pedigree (2nd round pick vs. 5th round pick), but he’s 1/100th behind Jimmy in FIP so far this season (Jimmy 3.01 FIP at A-Advanced, Peter 3.02 FIP at AA). Both Lamberts are worth owning in deep dynasty leagues, and we’re rooting that they continue their brotherly rivalry all the way to the MLB.
