In one of our tightest matchups (81 -71), the 1st annual Pitcher List Prospect Tournament Champion is…
OF Julio Rodríguez, SEA
Every now and then, there’s simply a juggernaut that can’t be beat. That’s essentially what JRod was in this tournament. While I obviously don’t think you can go wrong getting BWJ on your team in dynasty leagues (or redrafts for that matter), Rodriguez seems to have the star power that propels certain players throughout their career. I think everyone that’s not a fan of any other AL West teams were glad to see the Mariners make the right move by starting Rodriguez in the Opening Day roster.
With that being said, I hope you all enjoyed this year’s tournament. We’ll see you next year with another field of 68. Who knows who will follow Rodriguez’s footsteps in being crowned champion?
