2014 Fantasy Football: Camp Updates — AFC North
Pittsburgh Steelers Things have been relatively quiet in Steelers camp, especially on the offensive side of the ball. There are still some notes on the skill position players. Sophomore RB Le’Veon Bell is being held out of practice with a hamstring injury. He is considered to be day-to-day. LeGarrette Blount has been struggling while filling […]

Three Players We May Considered Moving On From For The Remainder Of 2014
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Whether it’s via trade or simply dropping them, here are three players you may consider moving on from based on their BABIP vs. xBABIP (the BABIP and xBABIP come courtesy of Fangraphs and are through July 24):   Derek

Kevin Kiermaier is Jake Odorizzi’s Best Friend
It is a bizarro right field in Tampa Bay this season. Wil Myers seemed assured to follow up his .293/.354/.478 rookie half-season with a top 40 outfield season, at the very least. Instead, Myers hit just .227/.313/.354 in the first third of the season and then landed on the 60-day DL with a wrist injury. […]

Closer Updates: Trade Bait & Bullpen Check-Ins
With the trade deadline just a few hours away, plenty of changes could still be ahead for baseball this season. Saves-seekers might be pushing their luck, however, if they expect several major bullpen shakeups before the deadline comes. After the earlier Huston Street trade and Jason Grilli for Ernesto Frieri swap, it might be a quiet afternoon. Just in case, we’ll explore a couple of names that have been floated as trade bait and discuss a few other bullpen situations who utilized the clos...

Fantasy Roundup: Hammel Struggles Again
Hammel hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far for Oakland (Photo: Beck Diefenbach/Special to the Chronicle) Since being acquired from the Cubs, Jason Hammel has had two disaster starts and two average starts. Yesterday was his worst start as member of the Athletics. Six of the eight runs he allowed came in the first inning, all with two outs. From the very beginning of the game it was obvious he wasn’t going to have control. He wasn’t finishing his pitches, which hindered his ability ...

Revisiting Trevor Bauer
We collectively scratched our heads when the Diamondbacks traded top prospect Trevor Bauer to the Indians after the 2012 season. But after he posted a suspect 4.15 ERA at Triple-A with the Tribe and then a 5.29 ERA over four starts with the Major League club, we thought that perhaps the team didn’t act as […]

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Asdrubal Cabrera on the move?

Merry St. Louis Masterson
The Cardinals traded for one of the most unreliable starters this year, Justin Masterson and his 5.51 ERA. Ouch. The Cardinals fell asleep and the Indians drew a shaft and balls on their forehead. People are snickering at you, Cardinals, because you have a shaft and balls on your head. Unless it's a non-Leaning Tower of Pisa that is partially obscuring a tractor trailer so all we're seeing is its giant wheels. Then, it's a lovely scenic landscape, but you still got had. ...

Bullpen Report: July 30, 2014
• Only Addison Reed could pull off the amazing feat of allowing a 3-run homer and still racking up a save in the same game. After Eury De La Rosa started the ninth inning with a four-run lead, he allowed a pair of baserunners, turning a non-save situation into a save situation thanks to the […]

Just How Good Is Brett Gardner?

The Lucas Duda Experiment
The New York Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this season, opening up the 1B position full time for Lucas Duda. Today, in a 11-2 beating of the Philadelphia Phillies, Dude hit his 19th home run of the season and picked up his 58th, 59th and 60th run batted in.  It was his 5th HR since the All-Star break, behind just Carlos Santana and tied with Anthony Rizzo, David Ortiz and J.P. Arencibia for the most in the league since the Midsummer Classic. Dude has hit be...

The St. Louis Cardinals Acquire Justin Masterson From the Cleveland Indians
The St. Louis Cardinals acquired right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Double-A outfielder James Ramsey today, according to Peter Gammons. An addition to the Cardinals pitching staff has been anticipated for some time now, but many assumed they’d be trying to make a bigger splash with names like David […]

The Red Sox are close to dealing ace Jon Lester to the Orioles. In what has to be deemed a shocking development, the Red Sox are "closing in" on a deal that would send

Justin Masterson Traded To St. Louis For OF James Ramsey
The Cleveland Indians have dealt starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for outfielder James Ramsey. Masterson had hoped to be doing better before the deadline approached but he’s been downright awful posting 13 earned over his last three starts in which he combined to complete 9 innings of work. Not exactly the kind of guy most teams were chomping at the bit to get for the stretch run. But the Cardinals are hoping that Masterson is close to fully healthy a...

Closer Carousel Creates Holds Opportunity
It’s probably safe to say that the Tampa Rays and Anaheim Angels didn’t draw up their bullpen plans like this in March. Both teams have had numerous players close games — or rather, attempt to close games — since the beginning of the season. They’ve both had the dubious “closer by committee” approach. They’ve both […]

Cleveland Indians Trade Justin Masterson to St. Louis Cardinals
The Cleveland Indians have traded Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals for an OF prospect.  Masterson is currently on the disabled list, and hasn't pitched since July 7th, and has not pitched more than 4 innings pitched June 19th.  Masterson won a career high 14 games last season, his 3rd straight double digit win season.  With the MLB trade deadline tomorrow, it appears as though the St. Louis Cardinals will not be in the running for Boston Red Sox Jon Lester or Tampa Bay Rays Da...

OPS Leagues: A Jose Ramirez Hunch
Which Jose Ramirez am I discussing, you ask? No, not the other eight professional Jose Ramirez's... but the Cleveland Indians stopgap between Asdrubal Cabrera and Francisco Lindor. FranLind has been extremely impressive-- he's already got 2 successful Double-A go-rounds under his belt at 19 and 20 totaling 400+ at-bats (.280+ AVG and 30 SB). While the historical HR/Isolated-Slugging isn't ideal, currently (and briefly) at Triple-A, he's mashing to the point where it's not even worth pre...

Differences in Daily Scoring Systems — Pitchers
On Monday I took a look at how hitters fare under different daily fantasy scoring models.

Relative Waiver Wire: Brandon McCarthy, Vance Worley
Two pitchers who have changed scenery in the past four months and have rediscovered better versions of themselves with the relocation.

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Jul 31
Thursday gives us two great, near sure-thing starts: Johnny Cueto @MIA and Clayton Kershaw vs. [insert any team here].

Every once in a while there’s a great opportunity to remind people that these rankings take into account a ton of factors, but sudden velocity decreases and poor control due to a lingering injury are hard to quantify.

Top Fantasy Waiver Wire Adds for Week 18
It’s almost August and football is just around the corner. While my attention sometimes drifts away from baseball as its younger, more popular brother comes around, my want to win my darn leagues will not wane.

Stock Watch: Fantasy Trading Deadline Part 1—Risk and Reward
 There’s a trading deadline coming up and it’s not July 31.(Okay, that one’s coming up too.)  But what I’m talking about is your fantasy league’s trading deadline. The last day for trades in my various Yahoo! leagues is August 17; in a custom CBS league we have all the way until the start of the playoffs in early September. But whatever it is, you really don’t want to be the team that notices a need, goes to make a trade offer…and only then discovers that it’s late August an...

Deep League Waiver Worthy: Is Kyle Hendricks For Real?

Jake Peavy Trades Clam Chowder for Garlic Fries
It’s been a disappointing season for Jake Peavy, as he posted a 4.72 ERA with the Red Sox and although meaningless on its own, sported a rather hilarious 1-9 record. And it’s not even like he was simply suffering from poor fortune. His 4.33 xFIP was his worst mark since his first full season in […]

Fantasy Roundup: Billy Burns’ Call-Up
Craig Gentry went on the DL with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand. The injury is not regarded as serious as he’s expected to only miss 2-3 weeks. No one ever wants to go on the DL, but supposing the hand is healed in two weeks then this is a great time for him to go on the DL because he has been dealing with a sore right knee as well. Coco Crisp has been out of the lineup since Sunday with a sore neck that may require him to go on the DL. These injuries left the A’s without a tr...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Jul 29
For the life of me I can’t figure out Tsuyoshi Wada. He has a very good first start (5 IP, 0 ER, 3 K @CIN) so I decide to go with him against the Cubs in his second start, which failed miserably (5 IP, 5 ER, 4 BB). Then I decide to go with a couple Rockies against him yesterday and he shows up spectacular fashion (7 IP, 1 ER, 6 K). His voodoo even extends to Josh Rutledge, who was a very late scratch last night leaving me with just the cheap, left-handed Ben Paulsen to take on the Chicago ...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Jul 30
I’ve found myself becoming an increasingly bigger fan of Zack Wheeler. While he’s certainly erratic and still prone to some blowups, he doesn’t allow a ton of homers and has major upside on any given day. He comes in at number two in Wednesday’s rankings. There are a lot of really big names pitching Wednesday. Corey Kluber is among them, but Steamer’s ROS projected 3.47 ERA seems high, especially for a guy with a 2.77 ERA and 2.79 SIERA. I’d bump him up a few spots. Jon Lester ha...

Who is Tsuyoshi Wada?
Way back in December of 2011 Tsuyoshi Wada signed with the Baltimore Orioles, thus beginning his career in MLB. Unfortunately for Wada it took him 3 years to make his major league debut. The resume from NPB was impressive. In 2011 Wada threw 184.2 innings for the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks while maintaining a 1.51 ERA. He also struck out 8.2 batters per nine innings while ...

Draftster Recommendations: July 29
There's good reason for CarGo to be so discounted considering all the injuries this year have limited him to 10 homers in his worst season since he was a rookie with the A's. He missed two games this weekend because of an ankle woe, came back Monday and looked very rusty (0-for-4 with two Ks), dropping his BA to a butt-ugly .152 mark over the last 20 games. So why in the hell would we recommend the struggling Gonzalez? Well, how about his career 7-for-9 mark with six RBI against Jackson? Clim...

Obviously there are a variety of fantasy leagues out there, and while it is not necessarily the most popular among hardcore fantasy fans, the daily leagues do exist and Seth Smith is a guy that should be owned across the board in such formats. The main reason is his platoon split, as he has a […]

DraftKings – Northsiders And Southpaws
After nearly three consecutive months of travel and boozing I think I might just be falling apart. I have little to complain about jumping from bachelor party, to wedding, to cider launch party and returning home to the heart of wine country. But, add in the grind of the fantasy season, nursing a pregnant wife and, well, nursing a pregnant wife and I’m all but convinced I am going to need to replace approximately 50% of my organs in the next 8 years. It’s time to bare down and build a ...

Taking Another Look At Stephen Strasburg And His Potential For The Remainder Of 2014
by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) We continue to believe in Stephen Strasburg as one of the truly elite in the game. However, at 7-8 with a 3.67 ERA and 1.26 WHIP his numbers are respectable, though hardly “elite”. Keep in mind, among pitchers who

3 Catchers Who Could Soon Make Impact
This year doesn’t look like a promising one for the promotion of catching prospects, at least those who could make a positive impression in fantasy baseball leagues.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Value: Is Ben Zobrist on the move?
The second wild card has thrown a monkey wrench into the whole trade deadline process. It’s even caused some people to propose pushing the non-waiver deadline back into August. The problem is that too many teams think they are still in the hunt when the deadline comes this Thursday. The Rays are one of those […]

RotoAuthority Unscripted: Trade Deadline Rundown
The next couple days are always some of my favorite in baseball. Maybe it’s just my short attention span, but I love it when players are changing teams and rumors are flying around like crazy. No wonder I became an MLBTradeRumors.com addict...during the Trade Deadline and the Winter Meetings I refresh RA’s parent site several times an hour if I’m sitting in front of a computer.  And you should too. No, not just because I’ve been tasked with driving up MLBTR’s traffic (I’m pretty ...

Today, I will check in on some hitters whose BABIPs are far above their xBABIP marks […]

No More Snickers With That Melky Way
Last night, Melky Cabrera hit two homers. Watch out, Melky's lactating home runs! Sorry, I cribbed that from Rotowire's notes. Kidding. Of course. Imagine you clicked on a player's name on another site and the first thing it said was Melky's lactating home runs. Only it would probably be more like this, "Melky has found his groove this year, especially vs. right-handers, who he's hitting .330 against. In the power department, he's lactating equally against righties and...
