Every week in baseball, a significant player will hit the disabled list, slip into a slump, or get traded out of a good spot.

Due to a combination of harder throwers and hitters focusing on hitting for power, strikeouts are at an all-time high in baseball. For pitchers, this is an ideal trend. The ability to generate swings and misses is the most important skill to possess, as it's the only true way to control what happens after the... Read More

We're all familiar with slugging percentage and how it values extra base hits over singles. Expected slugging percentage is a newer stat that attempts to identify a player's skill more so than regular slugging percentage, as xSLG removes defense from the equation. Since batters have control over their exit velocity and launch angle, but not... Read More

To be blunt, catchers in fantasy baseball have been a huge disappointment this year.  The lack of production from the position is leaving massive holes in some lineups and leaving owners scrambling to make up the difference. At the same time, there is not much owners can do when the position as a whole is... Read More

Injuries suck. We've always known this, but the move to a 10-day disabled list last year along with numerous injuries to high-profile players this year have slapped fantasy owners in the face with the hard, cold hand of reality. Injuries can cause huge shifts in value for fantasy players, so it's always wise to assess... Read More

It's time to revisit the most telling of Statcast numbers - Barrels. You may recall that last time we identified Evan Gattis and Andrew Benintendi as potential buy-low candidates because their power was due to arrive while warning you away from short-term power surgers like Pedro Alvarez and Daniel Palka. Let's see how things have... Read More

I have an unabashed affinity for post-hype sleepers. The concept of the post-hype sleeper ranks somewhere between posterizations (shoutout to my basketball readers) and Post Malone on my power rankings for concepts that begin with "post", and I've always found it a great deal of fun trying to pick out once-hyped players who others have...

It finally feels like summer! As the weather heats up, so do many bats that have lain dormant for the first quarter of the season. Monthly splits are very real for certain players, so you may consider buying into some recent hot streaks, fluky as they may seem. Scouting players who may be undervalued and... Read More

Every year the baseball community gets together to draft high school and college players who will not see the majors, at best, for three or four years.
