Free-agent starting pitcher Trevor Cahill is drawing interest from "four or five" teams after going 7-4 with a 3.76 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 over 21 outings (20 starts) for the A's last season. The right-hander has been injury-prone, which keeps his value somewhat limited in mixed leagues, but Cahill can be quite underrated... Read More

The Oakland Athletics are focused on re-signing catcher Jonathan Lucroy to a one-year deal, according to sources, but it's unclear if he's interested in just a one-year contract. The A's don't want to give a multi-year deal to a catcher with prospect Sean Murphy waiting in the wings. They have checked in on free-agents Wilson... Read More

In 2018, the average catcher in fantasy baseball posted a WRC+ of 90. That means that, on average, a catcher in the Majors was ten percent worse than any other position. If this does not show the dearth of talent right now for fantasy owners at the position than nothing will. This, in fact, keeps... Read More

Free-agent starting pitcher Trevor Cahill said his agent has talked to the Oakland Athletics about re-signing. The team has interest in bringing him back as well as Edwin Jackson and possibly Brett Anderson. The right-hander has durability issues and hasn't made over 20 starts in a season since 2013 with the Diamondbacks, so he's more... Read More

Over the weekend, the New York Mets and the Seattle Mariners closed a long-gestating agreement to exchange money, pro talent, and young assets. The M’s continued their descent into “Tank City” by unloading slugger Robinson Cano and his $120 million contract along with cheap All-Star closer Edwin Diaz in exchange for less expensive but less...

There is no such thing as a pitching prospect, well, except in dynasty baseball. As much as pitching prospects offer headaches to any team, real or fantasy, pitching is still a necessary addition to most rosters. Adding top names offers protections for those busts, but also gives owners the tools to go out and make... Read More

The Oakland Athletics non-tendered starting pitchers Mike Fiers and Kendall Graveman on Friday, making them both free agents. Reliever Cory Gearrin was also non-tendered. Fiers came over from Detroit in the middle of the season and was a huge factor in the team's playoff push, going 5-2 with a 3.74 ERA in 10 games with... Read More

The Oakland Athletics avoided salary arbitration with catcher Josh Phegley on Thursday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.075 million deal. Phegley is a backup-caliber catcher in the big leagues and hit only .204/.255/.344 with two long balls and 15 RBI in just 39 games for Oakland in 2018. He has very limited fantasy value in...

A group of 10 RotoBaller fantasy baseball experts recently came together to conduct a slow mock draft for the 2019 season. Was it way too early? That all depends on who is asking. But with it complete, we can start to look at where players ended up on the board. This is the first staff... Read More

Adrian Beltre Was The Best

You may have noticed that this is my first article in nearly two months. Much more likely, you didn't, but either way it's true. While I usually take the month of October off to recharge after the long slog of the regular season to kick back and watch postseason action without having to consider fantasy... Read More

After a full fantasy season of using Statcast measures to predicting risers and fallers each week, it’s time to take a step back and view the big picture. One of the most straightforward Statcast measurements we relied on was exit velocity or the speed the ball comes off the bat immediately after being hit. It... Read More

Oakland Athletics free-agent relief pitcher Shawn Kelley has decided against retiring and wants to play a few more years, according to his agent, Mike McCann. The 34-year-old right-hander posted a nice 2.16 ERA in 19 outings with the A's after coming over on a waiver claim from the Nationals. Overall, Kelley had a 2.94 ERA,... Read More

The Oakland Athletics are interested in signing free-agent catcher Kurt Suzuki, as their primary catcher in 2018, Jonathan Lucroy, is also a free agent. The 35-year-old Suzuki debuted with Oakland in 2007 and spent five seasons with them until being traded to the Nationals in 2012. He was an All-Star in 2014 with Minnesota and... Read More

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin was named the 2018 American League Manager Of the Year on Tuesday. Oakland's plus-22 win total from the previous season was the highest increase in baseball from 2017 to 2018. The A's also entered the year with the lowest payroll on Opening Day, but they managed to win 97 games... Read More

The Oakland Athletics are interested in re-signing starting pitcher Edwin Jackson, according to sources. Jackson went 6-3 with a 3.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 6.7 K/9 in 17 starts for the A's last year and helped fill the rotation while Oakland dealt with injuries to their other pitchers. However, the 35-year-old doesn't miss many bats... Read More

The 2018 season has now come and gone (so sad!), so it is now time to dive into trends and projections for next season! One of the main stats for measuring batters’ success is batting average. Surprisingly, Jose Altuve is the only player that was a holdover in the top 10 of batting average from... Read More

The 2018 season has now come and gone (so sad!), so it is now time to dive into trends and projections for next season! A tough statistic to find trends on is saves, as a lot of success for closers comes from success from teams. There are also a lot of bullpens by committee these... Read More

The 2018 season has now come and gone (so sad!), so it is now time to dive into trends and projections for next season!

The 2018 MLB postseason kept baseball fans on the edge of their seats, and also gave fantasy owners a new window into players as they begin to prepare for 2019. While the playoffs are a small sample, any chance to see players facing top talent from other teams, over and over, still has value for... Read More

The Oakland Athletics exercised relief pitcher Fernando Rodney's $4.25 million option for the 2019 season on Wednesday. Rodney had a 3.36 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 70 K's in 64 1/3 innings over 68 outings in 2018. All 25 of his saves came with the Twins before being traded to Oakland at the trade deadline. Walks...

The Oakland Athletics want to re-sign impending free-agent second baseman Jed Lowrie and are expected to make him an offer, according to sources. The 35-year-old was an All-Star and hit a career-high 23 home runs last season. He has averaged 155 games and an .804 OPS the last two years. If the A's do indeed... Read More

The Oakland Athletics gave multi-year contract extensions to vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane, general manager David Forst and manager Bob Melvin on Monday. Melvin's deal will run through the 2021 season and will make him one of the top five highest paid managers at roughly $3.5 million per year. Forst's extension is for... Read More

Biggest Risers of 2018 - WHIP

The 2018 season has now come and gone (so sad!), so it is now time to dive into trends and projections for next season! One of the main sabermetric stats for measuring pitchers’ success is walks/hits per inning pitched (WHIP). Walks and hits directly translate to fewer points in fantasy, so the lower the WHIP...

The 2018 MLB season was full of memorable moments and rife with power. It's unexpected to see that there was a noticeable dip in power numbers, despite the 5,585 home runs hit by Major League players. In 2017, that figure was up at 6,105 HR. Homers make the highlight reels but don't tell the whole story... Read More

Stars and Scrubs. Balanced approach. Regardless of the method chosen during drafts to fill your roster, your team likely needed more to get to the championship matchup or top of the standings. The skilled managers were ones who were able to discover players who would eventually break out. Every year there will be players that... Read More

Oakland Athletics third baseman Matt Chapman (thumb) underwent successful left thumb surgery on Tuesday, and it was performed by Dr. Steven Shin.
