There was a little bit of player movement over the weekend that, while not of the same magnitude as the non-waiver trade deadline, still had some significance in the fantasy baseball world. As the teams that are out of playoff contention fall further and further out of the race, they begin to audition some of their more highly touted prospects to see just how they rate at the major league level. Some of them, you’ve heard of and some, maybe not so much. But if you take the time to scout a few of them, not only could you find yourself a nice two-month boost for this year, but you could also be getting a leg up on your competition for next season. Keeper league owners likely have a good number of these guys on their radar already, but they tend to be afterthoughts in re-draft leagues, and that might be where you can get a leg up, whether it’s using the players now or scouting them for your draft next year.
Happy Hump Day to all of you fantasy baseball players as we creep ever closer to the Midsummer's Classic. As if the Yankees haven't been good enough, we will give you good news on two of their starting pitchers. We have a couple of rookies who are totally living up to expectations, as well as a starting pitcher who lived up to my expectations by going on the Disabled LIst. Of course don't miss out on my pitch streamer pick for Friday and check out the results of the past couple of days. It is still not too late to use the Fantasy Alarm service to maintain your rosters on a daily basis as we will send player news right to your email inbox or to your cell phone via text message. Check out the home page to lear more, but for now enjoy Rounding The Bases.
I know it has been a while since you have read Rounding The Bases, but we are back and better than ever as we close out the month of June and approach the All-Star Break. As always there is a bunch of injury news with both pitchers and hitters, both good and bad. Of course we cover the night's games too and give you the performers that you need to know about for your fantasy roster. And of course don't forget our world famous pitching streamers to help those of you who have a hole in your pitching rotation. It is good to be back and hopefully you enjoy Rounding The Bases.
The calendar changes again as we enter June and fantasy baseball is in full swing. It is prospect season now as many of the minors' best will be discussed in front offices as teams decide whether or not to bring their players up. You will likely see many over the next week or so, including Brett Lawrie even though he is resting a few days after being hit on the hand. You will likely really have to make some tough choices with these kids coming up as you can't have all of them so you have to hedge your bets on which one or two might be able to help your team. But there is plenty of other news and games happening each and every day so never miss a night of Rounding The Bases.
