There has been a lot of talk on fangraphs lowballing dylan cease and being behind the curve. I thought it was worth posting a full article that described why they are down on pitchers like cease and trying to reevaluate which pitching prospects are worth ranking. TL/DR is pitchers like Cease have flamed out a lot more, and they are systematically devaluing them in rankings, even at cost of missing next big stars. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/should-we-adjust-how-we-evaluate-pitching-prospects/
What is most interesting to me is that not only were there three contenders, but apparently two teams who "weren't ready to win" in 2017. I wonder who the teams were. Obviously we know the Cubs. The Brewers were the team most talked about before the deal broke, so it is safe to assume they were contender #2. I seem to remember the Yankees being a possibility? On to the non-contenders, there were rumors about the Braves sniffing around Sale, could they be one of the teams? If so, could Acuna have been on the table? What would the choice be, Acuna or Eloy? The Phillies added Arietta during the off-season, could they have been the other one?
I saw a lot of prospects during my week in Carolina, and one of the most pleasant surprises was RHP Dylan Cease. I'm now happy to report my ranking of him around 10th in the last T30 discussion was too low - he's clearly an MLB T100 guy and I'd put him substantially higher on the team list if I voted again today. All kinds of details here for you to peruse. Get to know Cease.
