I was very ecstatic to hear that Barry Zito and Tim Hudson would oppose each other in their final career starts. It is just a nice story: former teammates who both started their careers in Oakland would face off against one another for one last hurrah. I hope they both pitch well. It would be... Read More

This is quite the pickle that the Mets have found themselves in regarding Matt Harvey. They don’t want to push him past that 180 IP mark a season following Tommy John surgery, but they also need him in the rotation in the postseason to help them go all the way. If they are wise, they... Read More

Trea Turner was actually called up by the Nationals, and it happened before rosters expanded. Turner may not see starting time right away, but it may only be a little bit longer before a desperate Nationals squad plugs Turner into the shortstop spot to replace the underperforming Ian Desmond. With his job on the line, Matt Williams could... Read More

That trade between the Atlanta Braves and the Arizona Diamondbacks is very odd to me. In case you missed it, The DBacks traded an injured and old Bronson Arroya and 19 year-old pitching prospect Touki Toussaint for utility man Phil Gosselin. That Diamondbacks must have seen something that most people don’t in Gosselin. Or maybe they... Read More

Here at RotoBaller, we have discussed Carlos Correa at length over the past few days and weeks, and the MLB top prospect was finally promoted to the Astros on Sunday. After going 1-for-4 with an RBI in his major league debut, he followed that up by going 2-for-4 with a home run, stolen base, one run scored and... Read More

Prospects are an essential part of any keeper or dynasty league. Keep in mind - they are also a valuable commodity in re-draft leagues if you have a keen awareness of which prospect's value is on the rise and can make an immediate fantasy impact once he gets the call. This week's edition of the... Read More

You know the drill by now. Each week we will check out three players, and break them down in sabermetric detail to determine if they are "Champs" or "Chumps". We help you cut through the fog to understand what's really going on with a player and whether or not their performances are sustainable (if they're... Read More

The Astros and the Cubs are eerily similar right now. Both are looking like they are on the verge of a potential postseason run for the first time in several years. They are loaded with young talent, both especially on offense, with just enough pitching to get them through games. The Astros have more pitching... Read More

I have been very neutral in both of the Bryce Harper debates that have gone on between this season and last season. Last season, people were saying that he was overrated and will never be a great hitter. I knew that was too harsh on him considering his youth and still blossoming career (he is younger... Read More

This past week saw several top prospects get the call up to the Majors. Carlos Rodon, the number one prospect in the Chicago White Sox system, and Kris Bryant, the number one prospect in the Chicago Cubs system (and by many the number one prospect in baseball) each were called up to their respective big...

  MLB Prospects Who Got The Call-Up We are getting to the point of the season where teams are calling up MLB prospects from the minors faster than I can include them in my weekly reports.  I’ll start this week with two prospects that are already seeing major league action now.   Kevin Gausman, (SP,...

Prospect hunting in fantasy baseball can all come down to opportunity for playing time. No matter how much potential a young guy has, it can be hazardous to carry a guy on your roster if he isn’t getting a chance to compete. Today I’ll feature two players who may get a chance this season, mostly... Read More

With April over and teams jockeying for position in their divisions, it is nearing the time where teams will pull the trigger on some of their top prospects. While most teams will wait until June to ensure their players don’t get “Super Two” status, others may not have that luxury as the young guys are... Read More
