Another Look: Manny Acosta

Can you believe that early in 2008, Manny Acosta was actually earning saves for the Braves? However, he was so substandard this spring that he didn’t even make the team out of Spring Training. Acosta put up some nice numbers at Triple-A, and pitched very well after being recalled to Atlanta in late-May.

However, things went downhill from there.

Acosta struggled after the break (5.40 ERA), and had to be sent back down to Triple-A. He got a September call-up, but was simply too easy to hit by both righties and lefties, and that simply doesn’t bode well for his chances going forward. He may still have some upside, but in his current situation, his Fantasy prospects are grim.

Atlanta Braves Gear

The Braves have upgraded their pen, but Acosta should have a relief role and possibly seem some late-inning action – not that it will come with any value. We’d be shocked to see Acosta be of any use this coming season, so feel free to ignore him.

Kawakami enjoyed some huge seasons among his 10 years with the Chunichi Dragons before the Braves signed him to a three-year, $23-million deal in January.

Another Look: Jeff Francoeur

September 5, 2009 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Despite the fact that he’s playing through a torn thumb ligament, Francoeur has played very well lately (well, prior to a current 3-for-18 skid). He had an RBI single on Thursday and walked and scored Friday. What’s that? Two straight games with a walk drawn for Mr. Lack of Strike Zone Judgment? Before we get too excited, Friday’s walk was of the intentional variety, so it’s not as if Francoeur suddenly developed some patience.

Another Look: Randy Wells

August 23, 2009 | by RotoRob | Comments (1)
The 26-year-old won five games in July, and has sported an even lower ERA this month, despite taking one serious ass-kicking in Coors. Wells started the month by pitching shutout ball into the eighth inning in Cincy, good enough for him to win his fourth straight start. Then came the beat-down in Colorado, but since then he’s responded with back-to-back quality outings, including 6 2/3 innings without an earned run allowed in a tough-luck loss Friday night.

Another Look: Andre Ethier

Well, we were half right, as Ethier did stumble badly in May (.211 BA, one homer, 601 OPS) after his excellent start to 2009.
