Really curious about Benintendi in the fifth round in Justin’s league. That seems … high. If you squint hard enough at the Statcast data you might see cause for optimism – he increased his launch angle and barrel% a bit – but that’s paired with a notable decline in plate discipline. And there was a lot of talent still left on the board.
