Start Your Dynasty Team Rebuild From The Waiver Wire

If your dynasty or keeper team is at the back of the pack, now might be the time to rethink strategies. At the very least, it is time to take stock before other under-performing teams do the same and the resource pool becomes limited. Minor moves now could set your team up for success starting...

Hot Prospects to Watch Week 18: Beeks, Phillips, Spanberger

Today is the trade deadline and it seems safe to assume we'll be seeing more prospects landing on new teams by the end of the day. Last week we took a look at some top prospects that could potentially have a path to the majors open up by trade or that could themselves be traded... Read More

Surplus to Requirements - Minor Trades and Fantasy Implications

For fantasy baseball owners the trading deadline is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, the hope is that players move into better spots on better teams, or at the very least, do not move to worse spots. On the other hand, trades lead to changes, and changes are not always good... Read More

Cole Hamels to Chicago Cubs - Fantasy Implications

It did not feel like we would ever get here, but  Cole Hamels was finally traded by the Texas Rangers. Very little in baseball has been more up and down than Hamels' performances this season, but the Rangers finally found a trade partner in the Chicago Cubs, who were willing to give them the return they...

J.A. Happ in Pinstripes - Fantasy Implications

Deadline season might be the most exciting of the baseball campaign, with every team making moves and deciding whether to sell or buy. In this particular trade - Toronto sending J.A.

Hot Prospects to Watch Week 17: Gonsolin, Ray, Rutherford

It's getting closer to the trade deadline and we're starting to see prospects finding new teams as star players go on the move.

Zach Britton - Does Joining The Bully Bullpen Help Or Hurt His Value?

The New York Yankees sport arguably the strongest, most dominant bullpen in baseball. Chad Green, Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder, David Robertson, Dellin Betances, and Aroldis Chapman all sport sub-3.06 ERAs and all — save for Holder — own 10+ strikeouts-per-nine-innings ratios. A.J. Cole has been nothing to sneer at either (3-1, 1.29 WHIP). You would... Read More

Orioles Prospects Analysis - The Manny Machado Trade

Welp, it happened. After months and months and months and months, Baltimore finally traded their franchise shortstop to the Dodgers for a cache of prospects. He’ll be a huge upgrade for a club that has struggled to replace Corey Seager’s production, and an already strong squad gets stronger. In a lot of ways, L.A. lucked... Read More

Prospects Stat Scouting - Deep-League Hitters to Target at the Deadline

Imagine this scenario: you are an owner who plays in a dynasty league, but all the known prospects have been already taken.  No Francisco Mejia, no Brendan Rodgers, and no Bo Bichette.  Your team sits in the rebuild section of the standings and now is an excellent time to start flipping those assets for the...

Brad Hand to Indians - Fantasy Implications

News broke on July 19 that Padres closer Brad Hand will be moving to the shores of Lake Erie and donning the home blue of the Cleveland baseball club.

Rookie Report: Recent MLB Prospect Call-Ups (Week 15)

I'm glad I led off last week's article with Kyle Tucker because the Astros made me look great. They called him up this past weekend and it looks like it's going to take a small adjustment period for Tucker to get adjusted to MLB pitching. We'll get to that later. The calendar turning to July seems... Read More

So Kyle Tucker is still destroying the minor leagues. He has a .301/.367/.505 triple-slash with 13 HR and 14 steals (82.4% success rate) and yet the Astros have not given him the call yet.

Ottoneu Waiver Wire Report - RotoBaller's Staff League

Ottoneu leagues, available on Fangraphs, are a different beast, and for good reason.

It warrants constant monitoring and tinkering to fully optimize your lineup, and the innings restrictions per roster slot certainly force you to make some... Read More

At this point, we're just waiting for teams to start service clocks for their blue-chip prospects; we should see... Read More
