Updates on Gleyber Torres, Steven Matz, Trea Turner, and more.

Hitter of the Night: Brett Phillips, OF, Astros (Lancaster, A+): 3-3, R, 2B, HR. Phillips has done nothing but produce since reaching full-season ball last year, and that’s not slowing down any time soon, especially as long as he’s in the California League. He’s got tools across the board and production to spare, which makes it odd that he’s generally overlooked in most prospect circles. That won’t be the case for long if he continues to back up his first strong season with a second act.

Chris Mosch

Chris Sale doesn't get much help from his defense, neither does Jacob deGrom, Ryan Howard and Mike Moustakas handle the shift differently, and Mike Leake let's hit bat do the talking when it comes his opinion on the DH in the NL.

Reflecting on various strategies for building a DFS roster

We all know that drafting is the best part of fantasy sports. It's why we spend months poring over statistics and scouting reports in preparation for the Christmas-like atmosphere of draft day. The beauty of DFS is the ability to draft a new lineup every day, fueled by the same competitive edge that motivates off-season research yet triggered toward the changing tides of in-season performance.

An Agent's Take: The Luckiest Accidents

19

Joshua Kusnick

Players slip through the cracks in this sport. Finding those guys before they break out usually takes a stroke of luck.

One of the most rewarding experiences is finding a gem that everyone missed. People ask me all the time how I find clients, and, honestly, a lot of the time I meet these kids by accident. Call it fate, call it determination, call it whatever, but the roads taken by my clients that led them to me have often been very strange.

Rubbing Mud: Closing the Lefty Disadvantage

5

Matthew Trueblood

A survey of the dominant offensive trends, and how they have held up this April.

These last few years, we’ve been living in a world of extremes. It’s not enough to say, as so many have, that scoring is at its lowest levels since the early 1990s. It’s not even enough to observe, as even more people have, that the scoring drought has been driven by the combination of record-high strikeout rates and record-low walk rates (walks were rarer in 2014 than in any season since 1968, and rarer than in any season between 1920 and that one). There are several fundamental things about the way offense worked for the last two decades that have not been true for the last two years.

Since 2012, we have seen unprecedented:

Fantasy Freestyle: Checking in on April Leaders

J.P. Breen

A breakdown of and buy-low candidate at every position.

We can only glean so much information from looking at April’s statistics. It’s inherently a small sample size. However, in my experience of dishing out advice to fantasy owners in the Bat Signal and on Twitter, it’s obvious that owners don’t often evaluate the “state of the position.” That is, they tend to look at individual players and not focus on the context of the position.

Jeff Moore

Updates on Justus Sheffield, Gleyber Torres, Francisco Mejia, and more.

Hitter of the Night: Tucker Neuhaus, 3B, Brewers (Wisconsin, A-): 3-5, 2 R, 3B, HR. Neuhaus is a virtual unknown in most prospect circles. Two years ago, Jason Parks mentioned him on our Brewers list as a potential on-the-rise player to watch, but the tools that scouts saw then haven’t come to fruition on the field. He’s just getting his 2015 season under way, but this is a solid second game of the season to get things off on the right foot. He’s still not 20 yet and is in full-season ball for the first time, so he could be a prospect to watch.

The Orioles win the weirdest one, the Astros roll, the Yankees and Rays go deep, and the best defensive play of the day.

Playing in front of 40,000 empty seats, the cold corner, and too much of Nats-Braves

Yesterday's slate of games featured a boatload of runs, and DFS scores have been bloated for the past several days. The thin red line of 100 points has not been sufficient for profit, but it has fortunately been my floor for the past eight lineups. I'm also happy to report that Draft Kings has finally removed the shortstop designation from Billy Hamilton (who hasn't played more than one game at short since 2012 in the minors), and he qualifies only as an outfielder.
