On the seventh episode of DFA, Bryan and guest co-host Zach Crizer discuss the Bradley Zimmer call-up, and the potential end of the center field carousel in Cleveland. Then it's on to the big and little moves of the past few days, including former All-Stars going down with injury and former Royals going on to new teams.

It's Baseball Prospectus's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets) are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go.

On the sixth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. review the fall of Blake Snell, as the Rays send him back down to Durham after a rough start to the season. Then it's on to Ian Happ and his cameo in Chicago, plus the usual run-through of all things transaction–including the Dodgers gaming the system and the closers disappearing in NYC.

On the fifth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. talk about the end of Ryan Howard's career, what made him an interesting player, and how history will remember the powerful slugger. Then it's on to Justin Marks and the Dodgers' "type" of pitcher, minor moves that stick with you, and a full transaction roundup.

On the fifth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. talk about Ryan Howard's release from the Braves' Triple-A affiliate, and the (likely) end of his major-league career. (Bryan also wrote an expanded article about Howard for a Liner Notes column today!) Then R.J. brings up Justin Marks and how the Dodgers are chasing a very specific style of pitcher, and the guys reflect on some minor moves of years past that have stuck with them ... and Bryan goes a little too long on Athletics outfielder Mark Canha. Then it's off to the usual transaction roundup, where the Giants and Mariners continue to fall apart, and the Cubs may or may not be improving with the addition of Jeimer Candelario.

On the fourth episode of DFA, Bryan, R.J., and Shawn discuss the Marlins and the difficulty of rebuilding a rotation from nothing at all. After that, the guys cover the Mariners' slow descent into madness, which obviously had an effect on them as well, as they spent too much time riffing on Adam Rosales.

On the fourth episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. discuss the Marlins and their rotation choices after the untimely death of staff ace Jose Fernandez. After injuries to Wei-Yin Chen and Edinson Volquez, is the team too flawed to move forward, or can their vaunted bullpen shoulder the load. Then it's on to talk about the Mariners once again, as James Paxton's injury reminds us to never love pitchers, and Mike Zunino's demotion gets the guys talking about the devaluation of pitch framing. Finally, during our batting practice segment, things get a little weird when the topic of Adam Rosales randomly comes up.

On the third episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. attempt to figure out which early season picher injury has hurt which club the most, talk about how the Yankees have managed to play better than expected, a Pittsburgh Pirate call-up from Single-A, and much more.

On this episode, the guys rally their spirits despite a series of pitching injuries laying teams low. Cole Hamels is out for the Rangers, Corey Kluber is banged up, and even Hyun-Jin Ryu and Edinson Volquez have hit the 10-day DL in the past three days. So which team has suffered the most from a wounded wing? Then it's onto the surprising Yankees, who don't seem to be missing a step despite the recent injury to Greg Bird. Were their offseason acquisitions instrumental in building an AL East leader, or has it just been dumb luck? Plus, Shawn serves up more minor moves, including the beginning of the Kyle Kendrick era in Boston and a High-A catcher that somehow found his way to Pittsburgh.

TDGX Transactions: Week 6

J.J. Jansons

Phillies prospect Roman Quinn and Padres lifer Corey Spangenberg were coveted figures.

The Dynasty Guru Experts League is a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league founded by BP managing editor Bret Sayre in 2014. It is intended to satisfy the deep-league needs of all, down to just the right amount of Alexi Amarista. We roster 23 starters (C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI, along with two additional utility hitters, five outfielders and nine pitchers). We also roster seven bench slots and have 10 spots designated for minor leaguers, although a quick scan of the league finds that most teams utilize a majority of their bench spots for additional prospects. That means that there are an additional 100-120 prospects that are rostered above the 200 spots reserved for them.

These write-ups are intended to pair nicely with Mike Gianella’s Expert FAAB Review, as we will look at the TDGX free-agent acquisitions each week, as well as include thoughts on every major trade that occurs during the season. The yearly budget for free-agent transactions is $100, with $0 bids allowed for major leaguers and prospects.

On the second episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. delve into the early wave of prospect talent coming up in Los Angeles; will Bellinger and Urias push the Dodgers to the top of the West? Also, the guys break down Oakland's Andrew Triggs and much more.

From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

On this episode, Bryan and R.J. discuss the newest additions to the Dodgers' 25-man roster: Cody Bellinger and Julio Urias. Will these top talents push the Dodgers past the surprising Diamondbacks and Rockies in the NL West, and what should we expect from these two this season? Then the guys examine a transaction in retrospect, looking at waiver-wire pickup Andrew Triggs, and how Oakland converted this reliever into a surprising starting pitching asset. Lastly, the batting prospect topics include the NL East's spate of devastating injuries (Noah Syndergaard, Adam Eaton, Yoenis Cespedes, and Aaron Nola), and a few back-of-the-bench utility infielders such as Chase d'Arnaud, Tim Beckham, and ... sigh ... Jurickson Profar.

Rookies Cody Bellinger and Christian Arroyo present two different kind of dilemmas for the FAAB bidder.

Welcome back to Expert FAAB Review, the weekly series that looks at the bidding on free agents in expert leagues to help you, the Baseball Prospectus reader, with your fantasy baseball bidding needs. Every week, I closely scrutinize the expert free-agent bids in LABR Mixed, Tout Wars NL, and LABR AL.

As a reminder, LABR uses a $100 budget with $1 minimum bids, while Tout Wars uses a $1,000 budget with $0 minimum bids. LABR and Tout Wars use a bidding deadline of Sunday at midnight ET for all FAAB claims. Any statistics mentioned in this article are through the previous Sunday’s games.

Injuries can pinch available slots for minor-league prospects, presenting owners with a dilemma.

On the debut episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. discuss the New York Mets and how bad they are at using the new 10-day disabled list, Jerry Dipoto giving up on Leonys Martin, and the irreplacable starting pitchers heading to the DL!

On the debut episode of the show, Bryan and R.J. discuss the New York Mets and how bad they are at using the new 10-day disabled list (very bad!). After that, they try to make sense of Jerry Dipoto's latest roster churn: Leonys Martin gets DFAed as the Mariners give up on him before May. And, to close it out, the guys take aim at Shawn's batting practice topics including Madison Bumgarner, Garrett Richards, Starling Marte, and ... perhaps most importantly ... the epic Ty Kelly trade.

J.J. Jansons

Twenty fantasy baseball experts from around the internet compete in a deep rotisserie-style dynasty league. Get tips from the best by taking a look at this periodic analysis of their transactions.

Welcome to the first edition of this year’s TDGX Transactions. I’ll be taking the torch from the world’s foremost expert on leaping relievers, George Bissell, who did an admirable job of recapping transactions. He also had the first pick in this year’s draft, which you’ll find plenty of thoughts on below.
