Can you believe that the minor league season is almost over? Just one more week left before playoffs begin.

Rookie Report: Recent MLB Prospect Call-Ups (Week 21)

With the fantasy playoffs looming around the corner (or, in some instances, in full swing), rookie impact becomes less and less important due to the fact that there simply aren't any great stashes remaining. A top prospect being promoted for a cup of coffee can make a huge impact, but there does not profile to... Read More

Arguably the most exciting pitching prospect in baseball gets the call today, as Michael Kopech will start for the Chicago White Sox tonight against the Minnesota Twins. Kopech appeared in last week's column, where we looked at his long term value going forward. We're going to take a look at him again this week, but... Read More

Rookie Report: Recent MLB Prospect Call-Ups (Week 20)

A handful of intriguing rookies made their MLB debuts this past week, with two of the top 100 prospects according to MLB Pipeline joining The Show. Save for Jansen, I do not really foresee any of the recently promoted prospects being impact players, at least for fantasy, down the stretch, so it still remained a... Read More

Rookie Report: Recent MLB Prospect Call-Ups (Week 19)

This week was a particularly slow week in the world of prospects; just eight rookies have debuted since the publishing of last week's column. With that being said, there are still a handful of newcomers worth highlighting and a bunch of returners still cooking with gas. As we come up on the end of the... Read More

Eloy Jimenez - How Hyped Should We Be?

It is difficult to not get excited about a player of Eloy Jimenez’s caliber, especially when there are rumblings that he may get the call up to the bigs soon. During an interview with 670TheScore in Chicago, White Sox Player Development Director Chris Getz stated that Jimenez is close to joining the big-league club. Getz... Read More

New Faces in Baltimore - ETAs on Fantasy Prospects

The trade deadline has finally passed, but the real work is just beginning for fantasy owners. Sifting through the prospects dealt is hard to do, as most fantasy players do not have the time or opportunity to see these players, and instead have to look and project from stats to date. That is where we... Read More

Brian Dozier To Dodgers - Fantasy Impact

Brian Dozier spent the first six-and-a-half years of his career with the Minnesota Twins. There, he became a fan favorite while hitting more than 25 home runs three times and anchoring the second base position next to another Twins hero in first baseman Joe Mauer. All that came to an end though, at the 2018... Read More

Tommy Pham To Rays - Fantasy Implications

In what has to be classified as one of the more confusing trades during this year's crazy trade deadline, The St. Louis Cardinals shipped outfielder Tommy Pham to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for left-handed pitcher Genesis Cabrera, outfielder Justin Williams, and right-handed pitcher Roel Ramirez. The Rays, in addition to Pham, receive $500,000... Read More

The calendar has turned to August and we still have yet to see some of the big-name prospects that were expected to come up this season.

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

Nathan Eovaldi to the Red Sox - Fantasy Implications

As if the Boston Red Sox didn't already have one of the top rotations in baseball this year, they managed to improve upon it by acquiring Nathan Eovaldi from the Rays on Wednesday.
