FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: ANTHONY RIZZO 1B SAN DIEGO PADRES
Its June and that means we are knee deep in prospect promotion time and the latest big name to get the call is San Diego Padres 1B Anthony Rizzo whose contract was purchased by the big club on Thursday. Rizzo will instantly become the team's starter at first base and based on the ridiculous numbers he has out up in Triple-A this season, he could be a big impact bat from the start. Lets dig in and find out a bit more about Rizzo and what he can offer for fantasy baseball the rest of the season.
First lets take a look at those unreal minor league numbers this season. IN two months at Triple-A in 2011, Rizzo has hit an absurd .366 with 16 home runs in the PCL. At any level, those are tremendous numbers and so we can clearly see how powerful a bat Rizzo has. Of course we do have to mention the fact he compiled those numbers in the PCL where my grandma can hit 5 home runs but be that as it may, Rizzo still profiles as a big time power hitter who can also hit for average.
The other aspect to look at of course in relation to the PCL is the fact Rizzo will be making his debut season in Petco Park which is about as stark a difference as you can get from where he has been hitting all season. Yes the ballpark is huge and tough to hit home runs in, but remember that Adrian Gonzalez still had a 40 home run season while playing there and so its possible to put up a big time season in that park. So don't downgrade Rizzo too much based on that alone.
Looking at the big picture and what Rizzo could do as far as numbers this season, don't look for anything dramatic yet as he is still very young and could go through some adjustment period. He does struggle some against lefties and needs to improve his contact rate a bit to hit .300 but a line of .275 with 15 homers the rest of the season sounds legit. Pick him up in moderate to deep leagues and monitor in shallow formats. Rizzo is going to be real good and it could be sooner than we think.
