Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: A Deeper Dive: WHIP

0

Scooter Hotz

We've run out of WHIP puns, which means it's almost time to move onto another category.

With rate stats like WHIP, the value in the category doesn’t help much unless it’s paired with a big enough exposure base to move the needle for your team. For hitters, that means at-bats for batting average and plate appearances for OBP. For pitchers, that means innings for ERA and WHIP. To keep my WHIP low in deep AL-only and NL-only leagues, I don’t just look for guys who are good bets to post shiny WHIPs. When it comes to starters, I value health and grip on a spot in the rotation as much as I value WHIP since a good WHIP doesn’t do much in the standings without a decent chunk of innings. When it comes to relief arms, I look to fill out the back end of my bullpen with guys who are likely to put up good WHIPs who will also throw 70 innings or more. Lastly, I look for pitchers whose success in WHIP is driven by a low walk rate rather than a low hit rate. Walks and hits count the same in WHIP, but hit rate is more variable from season to season while walk rate is more stable relatively, making walk rate the more predictive WHIP component.

Fantasy Players to Avoid: Relief Pitchers

9

BP Fantasy Staff

You might want to let someone else draft or buy these closers in your leagues this spring.

At long last, our journey has come to an end.

Over the past two months, we've worked tirelessly (read: written two blurbs a week) to bring you a player to target and to avoid for each fantasy position. We hope our collective experience has helped you recoup some value and avoid some mistakes in your drafts this year, and we've enjoyed the debates that many of the names we've listed have spurred.

Rumor Roundup: Atlanta's Extension Spree

Daniel Rathman

The Braves talk two more extensions, and the latest updates on bullpens around baseball.

Braves hope to secure extensions for Andrelton Simmons, Julio Teheran
General manager Frank Wren has been busy in recent days, locking up Jason Heyward through his arbitration years and Freddie Freeman to an eight-year, $135 million hitch that represents the largest outlay in franchise history. Joel Sherman of the New York Post believes that Wren isn’t done yet.

Fantasy Team Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

14

Paul Sporer

The Snakes feature a new closer and a power-hitting first baseman with a case to be the no. 3 pick in drafts this spring.

The Diamondbacks’ moves the last two years have been a bit peculiar and yet seemingly despite their best efforts, they still have a rather formidable team. They have established star talent, quality veteran talent, and emerging young talent. It’s far from a flawless team, but it has the makings of a contender. Additionally—and more importantly—it is ripe with fantasy goodness.

Projected Lineup

Ben and Sam discuss recent trades and signings, focusing on moves by the Indians, White Sox, and Diamondbacks, Kevin Towers' changing approach to building a bullpen, and the reliever market.

Bullpen Report: Deadline Fallout

7

Mike Gianella

With the trade deadline in the rearview mirror, Mike looks at the changes in the closer landscape before unveiling his new tiers and the updated dollar values.

Welcome to another installment of The Bullpen Report. As a reminder, closers are rated in five tiers from best to worst. The tiers are a combination of my opinion of a pitcher’s ability, the likelihood that he will pick up saves, and his security in the job. For example, a pitcher in the third tier might have better skills than a pitcher in the second tier, but if the third tier pitcher is new to the job or has blown a couple of saves in the last week this factors into the ranking as well.

This week’s edition of The Bullpen Report will focus on moves teams made at yesterday’s Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. Additional analysis is also available at today’s Free Agent Write-Up, but if you’re looking for more specific analysis about middle relievers/deeper league fodder like Jesse Crain, you’ve come to the right place.

Bullpen Report: Stuck in the Middle

13

Mike Gianella

Mike explains why elite middle relievers haven't climbed his tiers, before revealing the latest edition of those tiers and the updated dollar values.

Welcome to another installment of The Bullpen Report. As a reminder, closers are rated in five tiers from best to worst. The tiers are a combination of my opinion of a pitcher’s ability, the likelihood that he will pick up saves, and his security in the job. For example, a pitcher in the third tier might have better skills than a pitcher in the second tier, but if the third tier pitcher is new to the job or has blown a couple of saves in the last week this factors into the ranking as well.

Last week, one of my readers wanted to know why I didn’t have a middle reliever in the top tier. Although middle relievers are integral in some leagues, I have not been ranking them due to the fact that their value is vastly different depending upon each league’s rules. In leagues that use holds as a separate category, non-closers carry a great deal of value. In standard mixed leagues with no start limits, you might not feel the need to carry a middle reliever on your staff at all. My goal is to take a cursory look at a handful of valuable middle relief arms in a non-holds, deeper-league, standard Roto format.

Bullpen Report: Introducing Tiers

7

Mike Gianella

In this week's edition, Mike obliges multiple reader requests by adding tiers to the reliever rankings, to go with the regular news and notes.

For this installment of the Bullpen Report, I am adding rankings, by popular demand. Closers are rated in five tiers, from best to worst. The tiers are a combination of my opinion of a pitcher’s ability, the likelihood that he will pick up saves, and his security in the job. For example, a pitcher in the third tier might have better skills than a pitcher in the second tier, but if the third-tier pitcher is new to the job or has blown a couple of saves in the last week, this factors into the ranking as well.
