MLB News and Notes: Week of May 21

It has been a while since I treated you to a trivia question. So with people losing their minds, as well as their FAAB budgets with recent call-ups like Juan Soto, here is a trivia question revolving around rookies. Who are the only two MLB players to win Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player in the same year? Answer at the end of the article. Juan Soto Gets the Call Even as I wrote about Juan Soto last week, I was still surprised to see the young prospect called up to the big leagues. The move was decided after…

Waiver Wire Report: Austin Meadows Finally Gets the Call

Sorry, folks. No snazzy title today. This week's waiver wire report was going to follow a similar path to last week in that the sexiness was yet again lacking. Then, in an 11th hour move last night, the Pirates decided to call-up Austin Meadows to fill in for the injured Starling Marte. So I fired up the old lap top and added Meadows to this week's report.

The National League is a little more top-heavy…

As we get closer to the top of these rankings, I’m finding it harder and harder to limit how much I write about each prospect. Can you really blame me? These aren't your run-of-the-mill prospects in this article. No, sir. These are elite stud prospects with tantalizing upside that are about to explode all over the MLB landscape. As you'll see pretty quickly, the terms "ace-caliber" and "elite tools" enter the discussion plenty of times below. You won't find any power or speed-only players below, either. As we continue to…
