Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.

Chicago White Sox
Outfield – Eloy Jiménez – 6yrs $43 Million
Before contract: .000 AVG, Average Home Runs Per Season, 0 Average RBI Per Season 0
After contract 2019: .253 AVG, Home Runs Per Season 12, Average RBI Per Season 29 RBI
The White Sox gave Jiménez a contract without ever stepping onto a major field. They have a lot of promise in the Dominican slugger, but the start of his career has not met expectations. Currently sitting at a -0.1 WAR his 28.4% strikeout rate is highest of any his professional seasons.

Teams shouldn’t and generally don’t draft to need as in other sports because a need today may not be one a few years down the line when these kids will be ready to hit the Show. Here is a great article from Jim Callis which runs down each team’s pool money and the full draft order including compensatory picks.
