Player Caps Now on the Player Pages

Short updates about over 1100 players are now on the player pages! As part of our new approach to membership, the player caps are free. Each player cap attempts to put the player in context by talking about recent career events and their outlook for the coming season — mostly with a fantasy slant. No matter your interest, however, you’ll find some nuggets in there, including Blake Murphy on Adam Rosales, Matt Klaassen on Alcides Escobar, Craig Edwards on Logan Schafer, and David Wiers on Chase Utley.

Thanks very much to our writers, listed below! They each worked hard to bring you insight.

The fantasy research pieces that used to be part of FG+ are now running over at The Hardball Times, with pieces about the following topics. Also free!

  • Mon., Feb. 15: Rylan Edwards, “Finding the Chacon Zone
  • Tue. Feb. 16: Mike Podhorzer, “xLOB%: Projecting a Pitcher’s Left On Base Percentage
  • Wed., Feb. 17: Alex Chamberlain, “On the Sustainability of Hitters’ Plate Discipline Gains”
  • Thu., Feb. 18: Tanner Bell, “Properly Valuing Hitters with Injury Risk”
  • Fri., Feb. 19: Jeff Zimmerman, “Comparing Pitcher First-Half and Second-Half Performances”
  • Thanks very much for your readership. I hope you enjoy these as you prepare for the upcoming season.

    With a phone full of pictures of pitchers' fingers, strange beers, and his two toddler sons, Eno Sarris can be found at the ballpark or a brewery most days. Read him here, writing about the A's or Giants at The Athletic, or about beer at October. Follow him on Twitter @enosarris if you can handle the sandwiches and inanity.
