Hot Prospects – Week 11

Short season ball has started and the pool of players who can make our Hot Prospects List has increased.  We have only added one this week in George Valera.  He’s has gotten off to a terrific start the season and assuming that continues, could be a consideration for our Top 100 list next season. It’s […]

Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

After surviving Air Yordan waiver wire, this week’s list looks a little flat.  While the names might not be as exciting and explosive as we’ve seen over the past several weeks, it might be more stable and predictable.  JBJ is only 25% owned?  Kevin Keirmaier is only owned in 40% of leagues. Sometimes in fantasy […]

Hot Prospects – Week 10

Now that Air Yordan is promoted, the next impact player in Triple-A is none other than his teammate, Kyle Tucker.  When will he get promoted?  I have no idea, but he’s hot and could help now. Next week, short season ball should be in full swing, so look for some really young players making our […]

Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

I know it’s all about the Yordan Alvarez today.  The young Cuban slugger, turned all around studly hitter made his debut Sunday and didn’t disappoint.  But, he’s owned in 63% of CBS league and likely is only available in the most shallow of leagues.  However, if he’s available in your league, you know what to […]

Hot Prospect Week 9

It’s another strong week for prospects and prospect361 has presented you with another 15 players who have been playing this past week.  As has been our practice, we are trying to limit our selections to players, not in Triple-A.   This week, we were successful in not have any Triple-A players represented. Over the next couple […]

Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

As the calendar turns to June, the first trade is in the books.  With trades come playing time opportunity for some and bench time for others.  It will be our job to help you navigate who to pick-up and who to leave on the waiver wire. In fact, Tim McLeod, our senior baseball writer is […]

Hot Prospects – Week 8

As the baseball world turns their attention to next week’s MLB Player Draft, it’s easy to forget that there are plenty of players in the minor leagues that are shoving it.  This week’s list is particularly strong with strong pitching performances from a pair of Tigers pitchers as well as strong hitting performances from a […]

Waiver Wire – Week 9

Memorial Day weekend is typically the time that fantasy owners need to look at their teams seriously.  That 10th round picks that you were sure would breakout and haven’t, it might be time to move on.  Only you can make those decisions but our job is to provide names that might help you both short […]

Buy Low Pitchers using BABIP and xwOBA

Now that we’ve passed the quarter-pole of the 2019 season, we are starting to be able to deep dive into the underlying statistics with more confidence. A quick way to see which pitchers we could argue have been unlucky is to compare their xwOBA (derived from Stat Cast batted ball data) against their BABIP.  Because […]

Hot Prospects – Week 7

In this week’s Hot Prospects, I provide an analysis of the difficulty the Houston Astros face in promoting Yordan Alvarez.  While Alvarez has arguably been the best player in the minor leagues this season…ok, along with Casey Mize and Luis Robert, the calculus on his promotion is hard. In addition to Alvarez, we provide 14 […]
