5 Prospect Bats to Stash for 2015

It is no secret that the farm systems around baseball have been raided by their major league clubs more often than I can remember in the past. This reliance on young players has happened for two reasons: the second wild card spot and a return to normal from the steroid era, which had us believe players getting better in their late 30s was the norm. With more teams on the cusp of...

Finnegan’s Wake: Trade Deadline Prospects

The trade deadline is approaching fast, and we've already seen a few major deals go down. I'll wrap up the rest of the trades next Wednesday, but here's a look at a few of the notable prospects who have changed teams so far. As always, we'll look at them through the Cheeto-dust-covered lens of fantasy baseball. Not every prospect is going to have a significant change in value, but...

DraftKings: Day After Stacking

Tuesday night, there was much action piling into the DFS Volkswagen that was the Toronto Blue Jays hitting. Many saw the matchup against rookie LHP Adam Morgan and stacked their rosters full of Jays accordingly. Not an inexpensive stack, the Jays proceeded to roll up runs in the first two innings, including a dinger from freshly minted leadoff man Devon Travis. The rout was on, yes...

Los Angeles Angels acquire David Murphy and David Dejesus

Bill Stoneman certainly hasn’t been afraid to pull the trigger on trades since taking over as the interim general manager in Los Angeles. True to his style, his trades have been under the radar moves that tend to add up over time. In the span of two days, he has acquired Conor Gillaspie, Shane Victorino, David Murphy, and David Dejesus. While Stoneman was not necessarily known...

Philadelphia Phillies trade Jonathan Papelbon to Washington Nationals

The Philadelphia Phillies finally pulled the trigger on trading one of their core veterans by dealing Jonathan Papelbon to the Washington Nationals in exchange for Nick Pivetta. The move had been in the works for days and could open the door for more moves from the Phillies. Moves like these tend to create a lot of changes for fantasy owners, so let’s take a look at the breakdown...

Storen Owners Pop A Vein

Jonathan Papelbon has a contract that insures that he remains the closer if he's traded. He would likely be the closer in Washington even without that stipulation, but it's so like Papelbon to have that in his contract. Should just call that the douche clause. To fix him, the Nationals should bring him into games where they're up one run in the seventh and run him out there for...

Los Angeles Angels Acquire Conor Gillaspie and Shane Victorino

Just like the New York Mets, the Los Angels Angels made a pair of moves the past few days that have flown underneath the radar. First, they acquired Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox for cash considerations and then they traded infielder Josh Rutledge to the Boston Red Sox for Shane Victorino. The pair of moves barely register on the fantasy Richter Scale, but they could prove to...

One Man’s Trash: Conforto in LF Major

Michael Conforto (+29%) was the most added player in fantasy baseball this past week. The New York Mets have been staggering along on offense this season (29th in MLB in runs scored), which hasn't exactly made life easy for their impressive trio of starting pitchers (Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, and Noah Syndergaard) thus far. Despite this offensive ineptitude, they are currently just...

New York Mets Acquire Tyler Clippard, Juan Uribe, and Kelly Johnson

The New York Mets made a pair of trades yesterday to add to their bench and bullpen depth. When you take the trades individually, they really don’t amount to much, but when you add the trades together you have to consider them to be contenders. First, they acquired Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson from the Atlanta Braves for John Gant and Robert Whalen. Then, they turned around and...

Marcell Ozuna’s Revenge

Nearly a month ago the Marlins made the somewhat curious decision to send Marcell Ozuna down to Triple-A. Just looking at his offensive numbers — and not reading into their potential displeasure with him showing up to camp somewhat out of shape or he and agent Scott Boras' rejection of an extension— it isn't like Ozuna was setting the world on fire with his bat. Owner of a...

DraftKings: Pheast on Phillie P(h)itching

Last week it was lefties beating up on Shane Greene, this week we have the Canadian lefty killers, the Toronto Blue Jays. If you read me at all this season you’ve noticed some themes. Mainly the pitching staffs I enjoy picking on most, Texas and Philadelphia. When one of those two waltzes into a home stadium of the highest scoring team in MLB, I get a little excited. The cherry...

Colorado Rockies trade Troy Tulowitzki for Jose Reyes and Prospects

The Toronto Blue Jays and the Colorado Rockies pulled off what is easily the biggest blockbuster trade of the 2015 season. The team essentially traded shortstops as Troy Tulowitzki heads to the Blue Jays and Jose Reyes heads to the Rockies. In addition, Latroy Hawkins goes to the Blue Jays and three prospects are going back to the Rockies to complete the trade. With two money contracts...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Giancarlo Stanton, Home Runs and the Hamate Bone

Last week I covered a handful of Washington Nationals players on the mend, and one of them — Anthony Rendon — finally made his return over the weekend. Today we’ll look at another high-profile player that you can expect back in the near future: the Miami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton’s the big fish (pun intended) on the disabled list. He was leading all of Earth...
