RotoBallers, as always, we’re constantly trying to come up with new features that will help you dominate your fantasy leagues. Recently, we’ve built a tool that identifies the biggest trends in a pitcher's strikeout rate over the last thirty days. The tool is for Premium subscribers only, and can be found here. Missing bats is the #1 way a... Read More

So we're officially into the second half of the season. Those fantasy pennant races are heating up, and it's no time to coast. Every win matters and there's no point in hanging on to dead weight anymore. If you have someone who is really becoming a waste of roster space, it's time to get rid... Read More

Happy Fourth of July everyone! With all the fireworks, hot dog eating, beer guzzling and all things that make America great going on (that is in no way, shape, or form a Trump endorsement) take a second to check out this week's cut list. The All-Star Break is right around the corner so the season... Read More

It's lucky Week 13 in fantasy baseball. Things are getting interesting. We have some closer upheavals, some new risers, and then obviously the fallers. As always, it's important to know when to let go in fantasy, and to drop the dead weight that may be holding your teams back. So let's get to the cuts.... Read More

So I've added a new segment to this column that I like to call "Reverse Jinx." I'm going to feature a player or two that you can't really cut, despite really wanting to, in the hopes it sparks a hot streak for that player. Worth a shot right? Anyways, it's important to know when to... Read More

It worked! Me listing Carlos Correa on the Cut List "hot list" actually sparked him. Of course I was never serious about dropping Correa, but the reverse jinx is real. Anyways, we're basically a third of the way through the season and you're getting a good grasp on how good (or bad) your team is.... Read More

The Cut List curse continues, as some more players are heating up just after I write about them here. I'm looking at you Adam Wainwright. Anyway, June is fast approaching. Some of those highly touted prospects could be up soon and that means it's time to trim the fat on your rosters to make room.... Read More

Every day, we will be taking a quick look at the best and worst fantasy baseball performers from yesterday's games. It's important to keep close tabs on what's going on around the league, especially early in the MLB season, and that's what we are here to help out with. Here's a quick look at those... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 54% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: I doubt many people expected much from Drew Pomeranz entering the season, but he's been found money so far. Pomeranz is rocking a 2.12 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 41K in 34 IP. No that's not a typo. The former first-rounder is really... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 40% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: The Oakland offense is no juggernaut, but Marcus Semien has been hot lately. Semien has eight homers on the season and 15 RBI, despite a .210 average. Over the last two weeks, Semien has hit four homers, driven in eight RBI,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Jayson Werth got off to a miserable start this season. His average remains an uninspiring .202, but his other numbers have picked up big time--Werth has six homers on the season along with 19 RBI and 16 runs scored. He has 11 RBI... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Castellanos is absolutely on fire right now. The third baseman for the Tigers is hitting a cool .368 and has driven in 19 runs. His .441 BABIP suggests regression will bring that average down to earth pretty soon. The early power display... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: A popular sleeper heading into 2016, Realmuto disappointed out of the gate. Even yours truly lost patience with him. He's been on fire over the last week or so, riding an eight game hitting streak. He has two homers and five... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: You may see the lack of counting stats and wonder why I'm recommending that you pick up Asdrubal Cabrera. Well for one thing, shortstop is incredibly shallow. Cabrera also has no one really vying for his playing time, and he hits... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Drury was tearing it up for Arizona in the spring, but ultimately seemed poised for a super utility role in 2016. Things can change very quickly though, and, sure enough, it seems that Drury has carved out a starting role for... Read More

The calendar is turning to May and Week 5 is about to start. The hot starters are beginning to cool off, and the sleepers may have hit the snooze button. Injuries, changes in the lineup, etc. - so many things are coming into play. Here is a list of some guys with whom you shouldn't... Read More

Every day, we will be taking a quick look at the best and worst fantasy baseball performers from yesterday's games. It's important to keep close tabs on what's going on around the league, especially early in the MLB season, and that's what we are here to help out with. Here's a quick look at those... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 59% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Wil Myers is looking good at the dish right now. The former top prospect looks to finally be delivering on his potential. All it took was being mentioned in my Cut List article. In all seriousness though, Myers is in the... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: This post would have been more positive had yesterday gone a bit better. Conley struggled a bit against the San Francisco Giants, giving up four earned runs in 5.2 innings of work. He yielded seven hits and walked four, so it... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: The Melk-man cometh! Left for dead by many in fantasy drafts this year, Cabrera has come on of late. Eight hits, two bombs, four RBI, and seven runs scored over the last six games is pretty nice. Batting behind Jose Abreu will... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: Odubel rules! I liked this kid a lot last season, but that had more to do with the fact he could play second base, outfield, and shortstop in Yahoo Leagues. This year the position eligibility is just at OF, but his value... Read More

Week 4 of the fantasy baseball season is upon us. You're starting to get an idea of what your rosters' strengths and weaknesses are, and what the guys on your team are capable of. What comes with that is seeing that some guys may not be in for a good 2016, or that you might... Read More

The first week of the season is always interesting. Fantasy players are overreacting like crazy to everything they see, or don't see, from their picks. Over the years you see some funny "rage drops" for flavor of the week guys you never hear from again. On that note, here are some guys that should be... Read More

Hi, all. New guy here. Well, kind of -- new to RotoBaller, not new to fantasy baseball analysis. Maybe you have read my stuff at RotoGraphs (of the FanGraphs.com family). Maybe you haven't. It's all good either way. The RotoBaller staff has charitably offered me a slot on their MLB writing staff, which I graciously... Read More

Same players, but new environments. It happens every year. For any number of reasons - including trades, free agency, new team directions, or just plain old chemistry issues -  MLB players switch to new teams in the offseason. Over the years, we’ve seen these moves work out in all sorts of different ways. Now I'm here to predict how some of... Read More

Five 2016 Second Base Sleepers

After you get past the elite options at second base, guys like Jose Altuve, things can get a little iffy. Because of that, it is pretty easy to just settle for a low-end player, punt that position, or even worse, reach for an overvalued player. As we get closer to Opening Day, here are some... Read More

Tyler Clippard did not have a great 2015 campaign. His strikeout rate was down, and his flyball rate was up. In 2014 with the Nationals, Clippard had an impressive 10.5 K/9 ratio. However it fell to 8.8 in Oakland in 2015, and then after going to the Mets in the same season it fell to... Read More

Addison Reed was bounced from Arizona after a nightmarish stretch as the team's closer. He would rebound and be an effective reliever, but never regained his closing job. After joining the Amazins, Reed posted an impressive 1.17 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 17/5 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. With Tyler Clippard gone, Reed is poised... Read More

A true fan favorite, Wilmer Flores may not have a chance to give his fans some face time in 2016. When the Mets signed Asdrubal Cabrera, it basically relegated Flores to the bench and out of fantasy relevance. However Flores could platoon with Cabrera, and will be one of the first bats off the bench... Read More

Bartolo Colon may be the most entertaining player on the Mets just by virtue of his size, and how he looks at the plate. Make no mistake though, the seasoned veteran still has a little something something to offer. His strikeout rate and ERA won't wow anyone, but his walk rate will. Colon makes hitters... Read More
