Aquino's Historic Surge

by Matt Stroup
Updated On: August 20, 2019, 8:48 am ET

Prior to an 0-for-3 on Monday, Aristedes Aquino had drilled 10 homers in his last 11 games, and had gone yard a record 11 times in his first 17 big league games. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Baseball Podcast, prospects guru Chris Crawford joins me to talk about Aquino's fantasy outlook going forward, and why this power surge coming so late in the season might actually be a good thing for fantasy owners.

Also on this episode: what to expect from Griffin Canning and Dinelson Lamet (36 strikeouts in 27 innings the last month), and why Aaron Civale may be a better real-life prospect than fantasy prospect.
