About Jon Denzler - RotoBaller

Born and raised in Cleveland, OH and now living in Denver, CO Jon developed a love of baseball from his first games at Jacobs Field (always the Jake) to playoff runs in the 90s, rebuilds in the 00s, and heartbreak by way of the Cubs. Jon mostly plays in deep dynasty and keeper fantasy formats but is always willing to talk streaming pitchers, prospects, and other fantasy baseball nuggets. Jon currently works as a college debate coach and professor, mixing in baseball where he can.

Jon Denzler - RotoBaller has written 207 articles so far, you can find them below.


Three Up, Three Down for Prospects - Catcher

While this is not a hot take, the catcher position has been dreadful for fantasy owners over the past few seasons. And yet, this does not mean that catching prospects are also on the decline. For example, this writer has four catchers in the top-60 dynasty prospect rankings, and two close to jumping into that... Read More

Daniel Palka - 2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

With the increase in power production across the board in real/fantasy baseball, owners are finding it much easier to add a 20-plus homer option late in drafts. And yet, not all sluggers are created equal. Take for example the infamous Chris Carter, who even with 41 homers in 2016 has yet to find, or keep,... Read More

Keon Broxton - 2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

2018 was a bit of a roller coaster for Keon Broxton with multiple trips between Milwaukee and Colorado Springs, about as much of a culture shift as one can find in the country.

Is Punting Steals a Viable Draft Strategy in 2019?

For readers who tune in to watch MLB games regularly, the phrase “small ball is dead” is becoming more and more the cliche. Managers do not feel the need to run as much, there is a decreasing rate of sacrifice bunts, and above all, no more hit-and-run as a primary offensive tactic. While many factors... Read More

Kevin Gausman - 2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

No pitcher benefited from a mid-season trade more than Kevin Gausman in 2018. During his time in Baltimore, Gausman had posted a 4.43 ERA, five wins, and a 1.52 HR/9. Following his move to Atlanta, those numbers changed to an ERA of 2.87, five wins, and 0.75 HR/9. Albeit, the Atlanta metrics came in half... Read More

Jake Bauers - 2019 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

Daniel Murphy to the Rockies - Fantasy Implications

Rockies fans watched a 2018 team that disappointed on offense and the front office might have just made the key addition to fix some of those headaches.

Carlos Santana and Edwin Encarnacion Swapped - Fantasy Impact

For Cleveland fans, last year was an odd viewing experience, as for the first time in eight years Carlos Santana was not suiting up for the team.

Top 10 Dynasty Catchers - Fantasy Baseball Prospects

In 2018, the average catcher in fantasy baseball posted a WRC+ of 90. That means that, on average, a catcher in the Majors was ten percent worse than any other position. If this does not show the dearth of talent right now for fantasy owners at the position than nothing will. This, in fact, keeps... Read More
