2023 Dynasty Baseball Buy or Sell

Welcome to the 2023 Dynasty Baseball Buy or Sell 2-10-23

I know this is a Dynasty Baseball article but I would be remised if I didn't take this time to discuss the Super B.... um, the "Big Game" sorry can't say those two words.

This Sunday the NFL season's finale is finally here as we get to see the AFCs best Kansas City Chiefs face off against the NFCs best Philadelphia Eagles. Both of the top seeds have made their way through the NFL gauntlet otherwise known as the NFL playoffs.

There are a ton of storylines with this game. Including the head coach of the Chiefs Andy Reid facing off against his former team the Eagles. We also get to see a set of brothers facing off against each other as Travis Kelce faces off against his brother Jason Kelce.

The halftime show is headlined by none other than Rihanna and we will see Chris Stapleton perform the National Anthem. Obviously, this is one of the biggest watched televised events of the year so there is also no shortage of great commercials. I have even heard that the New York Mets owner has shelled over a portion of his seemingly never-ending money for a commercial this year.

Regardless of the outcome, we should be in for a good game that shouldn't have any shortages of scoring. At least that is my hope.  Here at Fantasy Six Pack, we have some content regarding betting on the game. So be sure to check that out.

Now let's get into this week's Buy or Sell.

Cody Morris, RHP, Cleveland Guardians

Cleveland is quickly becoming one of the top pitching development hot spots. Currently 4/5th of their starting rotation and another 5/8th of their bullpen are all homegrown talent.

The next in line for the Cleveland pitcher talent stream is their seventh-round pick from 2018, Cody Morris. The tall right-hander had himself a solid cup of coffee in 2022 for the Guardians.

Before making his debut late in the 2022 season.  Cody was having a spectacular season between the Complex league and Triple-A. He made six starts and had a 1.69 ERA, 0.70 WHIP, and 39 K in 21.1 IP.

In his five starts for Cleveland, Cody had mixed results as he did have 12 walks in 23 IP. However he also had a strikeout per inning and an 87% left-on-base rate.

Cody features a mid-90s fastball that touches the upper 90s at times. His cutter has some solid late movement that starts in the zone and runs away to righties. His curveball still seems to be a work in progress, While his changeup is his best secondary pitch. The changeup had a 27% put-away rate and a 36% CSW.

As of right now, Morris is not slated to open the year in the rotation, but the 26-year-old should be able to force his way into the rotation and I would be looking to buy him, Cody Morris, now while the cost remains low.

Sell

Kyle Hendricks. RHP, Chicago Cubs

This pains me to write as I am a Chicago Cubs fan at heart, but the time to sell Kyle Hendricks is upon us. After a marvelous run from 2016-2020, Kyle has seen a lot of regression in the past couple of seasons. Including a career-worst 2022 when his season was cut short due to a shoulder injury.

However, despite the injury in 2022, the writing on the wall of regression has been right in front of our eyes. After never having an ERA above 3.50 before 2021. Kyle's ERA inflated to a lofty 4.77 in 2021 and a career-worst 4.80 in 2022. The advanced stats echo the ERA was not a fault of bad luck either. His xERA and FIP were above the 4.80 mark and the 4.70 SIERA was in line with the 4.80 ERA.

Kyle has also seen his walk rate increase over the past two seasons with an above-career average of 6.7% in 2022. Furthermore, he saw a decrease in his ground ball rate as well as it fell to a career-worst 36.2% in 2022.

When looking at his Statcast stats it only furthers the argument that Kyle's time as a serviceable starter maybe we fading. His xBA, xSLG, and xERA all rank in the bottom 10% of the league.

There are not a lot of pitchers that can succeed in the MLB in this day and age with upper 80s velocity. I believe Hendricks is nearing his time as a successful starter in the majors and I would be looking to sell him if the right offer comes across your eyes.
