This article is part of our Regan's Rumblings series.
Given the volume of questions coming my way related to keepers and 2017 planning, I'll shift my focus this week to one player in each of baseball's 30 organizations who I find interesting and worth a quick write-up. Many of these guys aren't well-known in shallower formats, but hopefully this is helpful.
Peter O'Brien (OF-ARI) – Basically the NL version of Evan Gattis. Batting .282/.307/.586 with 21 homers and a 111:11 K:BB for Triple-A Reno. He will be traded to the AL his winter and could be a DH/OF sleeper in 2017.
Adam Ottavino (RP-COL) – Sure he could get hurt again, but you could say that about most other pitchers as well. Ottavino has been lights out since returning from Tommy John surgery, allowing no runs in 11.2 innings to take over as Rockies' closer. Look for Ottavino to keep that job next year and save 35+ games with a bunch of strikeouts.
Rob Segedin (3B/OF-LAD) – Josh Donaldson didn't establish himself as a viable big leaguer until he was 27, the same age Segedin is right now. I'm not comparing the two in terms of future or past performance, but perhaps Segedin is a similar late-bloomer. After tearing it up in spring training, Segedin batted .319/.392/.598 for Triple-A Oklahoma City before recently making his big league debut. In his one and only big league start, Segedin had a single and double to drive in four runs, but the playing time just won't be there for
