About Scott Slezak - RotoBaller

I have attended games at all 30 Major League stadiums. I split time between New Jersey and Scottsdale, Arizona, the center of the baseball universe - Spring Training, Arizona Fall League and home to many MLB players past and present. When pitchers and catchers report, I report. Baseball love transcends to rotisserie, Strat-o-Matic and Scoresheet. Invent a platform for a baseball game, and I'll play it. A source of roto information emanating from Cactus League Spring Training and beyond.

  Tasked with ranking the top 50 MLB starting pitching prospects for redraft leagues, I found out real fast that preseason prospect lists for fantasy baseball probably shouldn’t be this long. The fact of the matter is, there aren’t that many MLB rookie pitchers who make an impact in any given season, let alone an... Read More

As we enter the final weekend of the regular season, it is getting increasingly difficult to form a FanDuel lineup. With most of the league eliminated from playoff contention and rosters expanding, teams are plugging in different players, using their benches and bullpens liberally, and basically becoming unpredictable. It is like playing fantasy football in... Read More

Happy Monday, FanDuel players. We have twelve games today, beginning with a few afternoon tilts that won’t factor in to the late-game contests. Nonetheless, I will make recommendations based on the complete slate of games, just in case you want to play some of the full-day contests. Today, we have one clear ace on the mound:... Read More

Happy Labor Day to all you DFS players out there. It is one of the best baseball days of the year with lots of afternoon games, rosters expanding and pennant races in full tilt. Hopefully you all have time to get a few Fanduel lineups into play today and earn some money while enjoying the... Read More

There are ten games this evening with a wide-open pitching field and some juicy stacks against vulnerable pitchers, so I'm going to suggest a few stacks to consider in addition to my typical position-by-position recommendations. With no extremely pricey pitchers on the slate today, everyone will have some extra bucks to build an offense. I will... Read More

  MLB Prospects & Call-Ups This week, I took to the phones and email to try to get a scoop on which prospects will get called up when rosters expand to 40 players on September 1. I put in some work trying to track down information on rookies and sleepers from all 30 major league teams, and though the... Read More

Below are my picks for Monday 8/18's Fanduel contests. The afternoon game between the Mets and Cubs is not included in this analysis since it won’t factor into most of tonight’s entries. Keep in mind that these picks are based upon Fanduel’s dollar values and won’t necessarily be the best plays in other formats. For those who... Read More

Here are my top value plays for Fanduel today. I did not include the Mets-Phillies afternoon game which is not included on the Fanduel slate. There are a lot of awful matchups, pitching-wise, to take advantage of today. I would recommend a stack of Tampa lefties against Colby Lewis, Rangers righties against Drew Smyly, Twins... Read More

This is the second installment of my Prospects On The Move, detailing a few of the minor leaguers and MLB prospects who recently changed teams at the trade deadline. You can see part 1 of the series here.   Chicago Cubs Trade Deadline Prospects The Chicago Cubs received Victor Caratini from the Atlanta Braves in exchange... Read More

With the whirlwind of activity at the non-waiver trade deadline this past Thursday, we saw the big names like David Price, Jon Lester and Yoenis Cespedes change teams. But looking at the transaction wire, or hearing reports on TV, there are always the unnamed minor leaguers who come to teams as throw-ins or for organizational depth.... Read More

Here are my top value plays for FanDuel and DFS leagues today. We have a short slate of just seven games today, and all starting pitchers are right-handed, which eliminates a lot of the typical platoon lefty-killers from consideration. Looking back at last week’s picks, I have to apologize for the Madison Bumgarner recommendation; he... Read More
