Over the first eight weeks of the 2017 season, 14 teams underwent a change in the closer’s role, whether as a result of injury or ineffectiveness.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Zack Wheeler took a two-season hiatus following 2015 Tommy John surgery, but is finally back on the mound for the Mets, and has actually been one of their more reliable starters.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 43% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: After an injury-riddled 2016 campaign, David Peralta has returned to form in the early stages of 2017. Through 36 games played, the 29-year-old has slashed .319/.367/.489 with four homers and four steals. He is cemented into the two-hole of a Diamondbacks lineup... Read More

Edwin Diaz looked like the best young closer in baseball down the stretch last season, mowing down opposing hitters to the tune of a 2.79 ERA and 5.87 K/BB. However, he has struggled to command his pitches in 2017, leading to a 5.28 ERA and just 2.00 K/BB. The Mariners finally made a change on... Read More

As mentioned here, it can be quite easy to overreact to a player’s early season production— or lack thereof. While some players take time to adjust to the new season, others explode out of the starting gate, only to fade away as time passes. These five players often play their best baseball in April, and... Read More

It’s easy to pass judgment on a player based on his production in April, but it’s important not to overreact to a small sample size in the season’s opening month— especially when that player has a tendency to crawl out of gate as if he had been napping all offseason. These six players all have... Read More

Read More

Russell Westbrook is priced at $13,300. That’s insane. He needs 80 points to hit value in tournament play, and even if he does reach 5x for cash games, he takes up so much salary that you’ll have to find several very cheap players who will also produce. No, thank you. With Kevin Durant out with... Read More
