Above average defender with decent strikeout rates but hasnt put up a double-digit walk rate since 2013. Throws a mid-90s 4-seamer up in the zone and a plus high-80s cutter. Reiver Sanmartin - Reds - Deceptive left-hander that won a starting rotation role out of Spring Training for the Reds. I also would be even less surprised if he ended up as a second division bench bat that ends up in Asia in a few years. Collectors typically consider these cards to be a rookies True Rookie Card (TRC) and they hold a comparatively significant demand over most other rookie cards. However, until then, not much to get excited about. At best, he competes for a closers role at some point in the future. Juan Yepez - Cardinals - Acquired from the Braves in 2017 for Mat Adams and long after that trade faded from the memory banks, Yepez popped almost out of nowhere in 2021.

I had written up an intro about how disappointing this rookie checklist was. My feeling is that he ends up in long relief and spot starter territory, which is another standard Tier None profile.

Just like Series 1, this was not part of the announced checklist, but we have started to see them pop up and the most important one of all the rookies is included - a Wander Franco HFA. Defensively he is limited and he wont provide anything in the speed department, but that is less important when it comes to the hobby. Both pitches can get whiffs, with the slider getting whiffs mostly because hitters are geared to catch up to the heat. A swingman, mutli-inning reliever pitchability lefty with a variety of offerings.

Austin Warren - Angels - Middle to back-end relief role depending on how much he can keep the walk rates down. While not tearing the cover off the ball, hes hit a respectable .266/.328/.431 with four home runs as of this writing. Not great Bob. I dont make them, I just follow them. If he keeps rolling in 2022 with that changeup continuing to be the filthy weapon it appears to be, he goes from a potential SP 3/4 to a potential SP 2 and is deserving of a Tier 2 ranking.

For now, hes a Tier None guy until he can find an everyday role and/or tap into some unexpected power. Cooper Criswell - Angels - Tall, skinny pitcher that throws from an almost sidearm slot. And thats exactly what the Diamondbacks did after hitting .201 with one home run in the month of April. Hes back in the minors on rehab outings at the moment. Tier None for now - keep an eye on his plate discipline numbers to see if there are substantive changes to lead to a climb into Tier 3. 03 80 90 73 12, Accueil | To the Tier None reliever bucket he goes. Doesnt throw any of his five pitches more than 30% of the time as he looks to keep hitters off balance and induce weak contact. While he debuted in 2022, he was called up for the Wild Card game in which the Cardinals lost and Yepez did not play. I am a little bit on the fence here with McCarthy - there is some potential for a Tier 3 everyday regular that hits 10 home runs, steals 20 bases, hits .240 - .250 and gets to play daily because of his outfield defense.

As a starting pitcher there was a glimmer of Tier 3 back-end rotation hope, but that has been snuffed out, at least for the time being. Batting below the Mendoza line currently, I expect that he will regress back to what hes shown prior to this season. His lack of in-game power and positional versatility will limit his big league opportunities.

Unfortunately, hes putting the ball on the ground way too much at right around the 50% mark. The slide piece is currently at a 25 SwStr% which is potential ace level stuff. Had a rough two-start debut in 2021, put up three decent to good games in 2022, and then got blown up by the Braves in his first start in June, resulting in him being sent back down to Triple-A. Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. The main knock up to this point is that he rarely goes deep into games with only one outing longer than 6 innings in 2022, and that innings bump is what will get him up to an SP2 and Tier 2 ranking for me. Had a rookie auto in 2022 Series 1, but this is his first flagship base rookie card. Four pitch mix with a above average fastball and curveball, average slider, and a show-me changeup. I have Yepez slotted into Tier 2 because I believe the breakout and think we are seeing a future .280 bat with 25+ home runs in a full season.

Will throw for strikes but doesnt do anything of particular note. It now looks like he could end up as a potential future closer, which has some hobby potential if the job can be held long enough. Only true aces get the Tier 1 designation, and Baz has that ace potential in spades. {"modules":["unloadOptimization","bandwidthDetection"],"unloadOptimization":{"browsers":{"Firefox":true,"Chrome":true}},"bandwidthDetection":{"url":"https://ir.ebaystatic.com/cr/v/c1/thirtysevens.jpg","maxViews":4,"imgSize":37,"expiry":300000,"timeout":250}}. Something went wrong. Potential plus fastball slider combo lacking command reliever. Alfonso Rivas - Cubs - Fourth round pick of the Athletics in 2018, Rivas was traded to the Cubs for Tony Kemp in 2020. Janson Junk - Angels - Acquired by the Angels along with Elvis Peguero at the 2021 trade deadline from the Yankees in exchange for Andrew Heaney. Will no one ever learn not to trade with the Rays? Good job Topps. The biggest question coming into 2022 was where he would play with Goldschmidt blocking him at first base and a plethora of outfielders in the Cardinals system. Started with the Reds (obviously) as a 2017 9th round draft pick, was traded to the Angels at the deadline in 2020 for Brian Goodwin, and then claimed off of waivers in the spring of 2022 by the Cardinals. The base design is the same that we saw in 2022 Topps Series 1 - go check out my article on Series 1 if you are interested in hearing my thoughts on it.

Only had one game in 2021 at the MLB level as a COVID call-up for Chris Sale and has spent all of 2022 in Triple-A including a stint on the IL for a strained pectoral. This Live Look was from the end of April, and since then, Cruz has been out to prove Jake WRONG. Romy Gonzalez - White Sox - Has a good floor given his positional versatility as he can play pretty much anywhere in the infield or outfield. Full-time run was a question given the Blue Jays depth. That will play. His floor is a multi-inning, low leverage type of reliever thats had command challenges in the past. There was a potential hit/speed fourth outfielder/second division regular profile in the offering here, but his hit tool has fallen off to the point where he is more emergency depth and a speedy pinch runner. Tier Two - Bats that may lack in a certain area such as top-end power, three true outcomes players, may be great real life/fantasy players, but not hobby-elite. Connor Seabold - Red Sox - Backend starter profile that should be able to stick in the rotation. Just like Series 1, you will find two hobby configurations, regular Hobby and Hobby Jumbo. Features a plus 96-99 fastball, a plus hard changeup in the 92-94 range, and above average slider and curveball. By the end of April, he was hitting below the Mendoza line and striking out at a 38% rate resulting in getting sent back down to Triple-A. Regression is very likely back to his MiLB profile of a .240 or less hitter with single-digit home runs. Below average bat and in-game power although there is some raw pop in there. If he can get his changeup or slider dialed in, he may find more success. Four to five years ago the hit tool and having Coors field as a future home ballpark probably would have seen Welker potentially wouldve been in consideration for a Tier 2 slotting. There is little power in the profile at the moment, although playing in Great American Smallpark means he should pick up some home runs regardless. At the moment, given his poor performance in 2022 and his future bullpen risk, hes getting slotted into the top half of Tier None. That helps his secondaries play up, especially his changeup. He also may struggle on the defensive side of the ball, wherever he ends up settling into. Strong command with a low release point and strong induced vertical break (making it look like it is rising) drive those near-elite qualities. Plenty of pitchers, catchers, role players, hit tool only bats, defense first players, etc. With Brash, its all about the movement profiles on all his pitches. There are various inserts and as usual, we get the continuation of the 35th anniversary throwback insert with the 1987 Topps design. Given his deficiencies on the defensive side, hes mostly a fringe major leaguer that will bounce around the backend of rosters across second division teams.

Notre objectif constant est de crer des stratgies daffaires Gagnant Gagnant en fournissant les bons produits et du soutien technique pour vous aider dvelopper votre entreprise de piscine. Had a rookie auto in 2022 Series 1, but this is his first flagship base rookie card. Yohel Pozo - Rangers - Primarily a catcher but is probably better suited to a 1B/DH role given his size and lack of mobility behind the dish. There have been promising flashes - seriously go watch his sequence of striking out Trout and Ohtani back to back in early May.

Youd hope at least one of those six teams thought enough to trade for him, but nope, they were all via free agent/waiver claims. More of a floor projection than a ceiling projection which keeps him in Tier None as opposed to Tier 3. I will not be writing up the rookies with base short prints (Tork, J-Rod, Witt) since they were unannounced. He hasnt pitched since he went on the COVID injured list in mid-May, he was living in top 20 starting pitcher territory. Hans Crouse - Phillies - Currently moonlighting as a pitcher for the Phillies, but come Christmas time, this man has plans at Nakatomi Plaza. Ill summarize some points from our own Jake Kerns Live Look - impressive physical presence whose most significant challenge was what was going on between the ears rather than between the lines. Slider and curveball, sometimes seemingly almost the same pitch given their similar velocities, are the best of the bunch. There is legitimate 30+ home run power in his profile and he has enough patience at the plate where he wont strike out as much as we are used to seeing from todays power-only bats. The Nationals sure need starting pitching, so I wouldnt be surprised if Adon has a long leash. He hit everything in sight in his first three years in the minors, but then the shoulder problems started back in 2018 and it seems like he hasnt been exactly the same player since. With Wade Miley (DFA), Sonny Gray (Trade), and Luis Castillo (Injury) not in the 2022 Reds starting rotation to start the season, Sanmartin got to start the second game of the season. Hence we get his base rookie card in this product. Add in a PED suspension costing him half the 2021 season and recently announced season-ending shoulder surgery and Welker plummets into Tier None. The second installment out of three of Topps Flagship products in 2022 initially left a LOT to be desired.

Mostly relies on generating weak/ground ball contact. Alexy has recently cleaned up his mechanics to keep a back end starting role in the cards.

Ralisation Bexter. He came back up in May and it was the same old story.

While he started 2022 in the Pirates bullpen, he was sent down to Triple-A once the MiLB season started in late April to stretch out to a starters workload. At his best, he could be a .250 hitter and go 20/20. Hes in the middle of my Tier 3 because of the power tool but there is a high risk that he turns into a Quad A/NPB slugger. Has a sweeping slider and a curveball that are both effective pitches when well commanded. Before we jump into the breakdown of the rookie checklist, a quick refresher on how I roughly think of my Tiers. Josh Lowe - Rays - The younger brother of former Rays and current Rangers first baseman Nathaniel Lowe, Josh is a power/speed outfielder that can take a walk but also will strike out at an above average clip. Conseils

Hobby lottery tickets where the odds are stacked against you. Hell throw a slider and a curveball with a rare changeup every now and then. Connor Overton - Pirates* - A backend starting pitcher who's now on his 6th organization in the Cincinnati Reds (even though hes a Pirates player in this product). Command and a repeatable delivery are his biggest obstacles to landing a regular mid-rotation role. | Infos Utiles It was slightly surprising that he made the opening day starting five for the Mariners in 2022, but the pure stuff is undeniable. He found some unexpected minor league power in 2021 as well, but hes going to have to find those contact rate improvements for it to be usable at the MLB level. Went on the injured list with shoulder inflammation to start the season, making it even easier to put him into Tier None. Elvis Peguero - Angels - Acquired by the Angels along with Janson Junk for Andrew Heaney at the 2021 trade deadline. The rocket arm will bale him out, but the rest of the fielding game isnt his forte. On the other hand, 2022 has been very rough for Adon. Kervin Castro - Giants - Relief arm that will throw a 95-96 fastball with an above average curveball with inconsistent command. A.J. Has a starters frame, so theres still a chance he could find a role there as hes had a ton of minor league success in the role. But I would not fault anyone for having Ryan in their own personal Tier 2 given the profile and the results. Relievers almost always belong in Tier None, and then there are relievers whove recently undergone Tommy John surgery, which should be a tier below Tier None. Suddenly we were seeing a potential ace, and then he went under the knife in March of 2022 to clean up loose bodies in his elbow. If he does make adjustments that lead to more pop without sacrificing much else, then he could become a relevant everyday player. 03 88 01 24 00, U2PPP "La Mignerau" 21320 POUILLY EN AUXOIS Tl. Marcos Dipln - Orioles - Low leverage relief arm with a variety of pitches and command issues. Biggest concern is the hit tool as his swing is geared for power. A Tier None backup catcher profile unless the unlikely outcome of his small sample success turning into large sample success comes out of left field (or from behind the dish in this case). The flip side is also true though, in that there could be that 40+ home run season at some point in the future, especially if he ends up in a lefty friendly park like Yankee stadium. At the time of writing this, regular hobby boxes are in the $125 range while hobby jumbos are in the $250 range pre-sale. TJ Friedl - Reds - Versatile fourth outfielder type that has plus plate discipline and will provide some speed on the base paths. Contact There is definitely upward mobility for Welker although the deck is stacked against him at the moment. Ralisations |

There might be quick sell opportunities if he gets hot as he has above average power, but other than that, very little of interest here. Lacks velocity but still is able to generate all of the numbers you want to see outside of walk rate. Thats a problem because if he isnt delivering, it is very easy to sit him or send him back down to the minors. If he cant get his strikeout rates back under 30% like he was sporting prior to his MLB call up in 2021, then he could slide down into Tier None. The most likely outcome is that he is an SP4 with a bit of upside. Of the two, the second feels more likely and with him going unclaimed on waivers already once this year, it results in a Tier None ranking for me. Robson, more than anything, will likely be the target of Tigers fans ire because they were hoping they would get a shot at a Spencer Torkelson rookie card in this product and instead getJacobRobson. The Main Attraction in Flagship releases is the base rookie cards and all of their associated parallels. Theres enough floor with some ceiling to keep him out of Tier None and in Tier 3.

An SP2 profile is within reach although with the Pirates it may be depressed just because he wont be regularly picking up wins.

On the short side, Kolozsvary is a third catcher that provides decent defensive value but leaves the offensive side of his game wanting. Now hes being used exclusively out of the pen and the results have left a fair amount to be desired. Is mostly throwing a curveball as his second pitch and not really doing much with anything else. A mid-rotation ceiling, but hes fallen into the bottom of Tier 3 for me with how little hes pitched lately (hes been on the minor league COVID-IL since mid-May) and not really having done anything eye-opening in his 2021 MLB debut or so far in 2022. Now hes a standard fare Tier None org depth. Primarily first base although he can play the corner outfield. High-end SP2 pitchers with additional positive factors such as team, arsenal, pedigree, etc. Sports Memorabilia, Fan Shop & Sports Cards, This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. The Pirates decided he needed to go back to Triple-A to start the season and it did not start well at all slashing .176/.282/.284 with 1 home run in April. Small sample sizes and all that, but he could be in line for some closer duty in the future if he keeps this up. He gets into Tier 3 because of the filth he throws and not the MLB performance that we saw in April. Combination of high-end Hit and Power tools that won't end up as designated hitters. Given the short turnaround time between the MLB seasons start and the release date of Topps Series 2, typically about two months, its always tough for Topps to get those rookies that debut in the first month of the season into the product.

Hes currently sporting a 31% strikeout rate with a 7% walk rate. There has been a looming specter of relief risk but the Orioles had him on that starters path all the way up until his MLB debut in late 2021. Throws two dominant pitches with a 97-100 four-seam fastball and a high 80s slider, each of which generates a ton of whiffs. And then, as people started opening and posting their hits on social media and for sale on ebay on the day before the official release, we came to see that Topps made a surprisingly smart choice by including a Wander Franco Home Field Advantage card as well as base short prints of some of the most desirable rookies in Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt Jr., and Spencer Torkelson.
