Byung-Ho Park, Jesus Montero, Zack Cox, Danny Hultzen. Unless you play in a ridiculously deep -ONLY League…you know what? No, this HAS to stop. Minor league rosters are still littered with these names and more, prospects from years gone by. Perhaps a steep price was paid to acquire their services

The All Star Break is almost here. At this point, you know exactly what type of team you have. You know your team’s strengths and weaknesses. You know if you have a shot at the top spot in roto, or the playoffs in H2H. If you reside at the top

In the age of launch angles, lowered hands, and exit velocity, sometimes all it takes is some muscle to emerge offensively. Whit Merrifield started his MLB career via the 2010 Amateur Draft. He was taken in the 9th round with very little fanfare. You hear about ‘level-per-year’ players, but Whit

I prefer sites with virtually unlimited watch list sizes, which allow fools like to me to place any remotely interesting player on watch. My thought process is that I can review player progression at some imaginary point in the future when

Let me introduce you to Mitchell White. A 2016 2nd rounder, he utterly dominated the minors last season in a huge 22 inning sample size. Okay, that’s minuscule compared to a full starters workload, but at this stage the innings total is meaningless. His workload was tightly managed and understandably so,

While taking a trip to a minor league baseball game may not sound like the most riveting experience ever, it’s an experience I highly recommend. Not only are you able see get far closer to players than at most major league games, but, oftentimes, you’ll also have the ability to personally

Back-of-the-rotation starters who have always been back-of-the-rotation starters don’t often have the look of exciting fantasy sleepers, especially ones who have no prospect pedigree to speak of and a lack of big league success. Despite this, Matt Andriese may be a special case, carrying hidden upside that most fantasy owners
