Andrew Stutzman is an avid fantasy baseball player since high school. The objective analysis of baseball has been his passion since that time.


AL Player Spotlight - October 3, 2009

David Ortiz (DH – Red Sox) After months of debating whether or not David Ortiz was cooked, he has very quietly put together 4 consecutive very strong months to finish the season. If you remove Big Papi’s remarkably futile April

NL Player Spotlight - September 30, 2009

Ronny Cedeno (SS – Pirates) It is looking very likely that Ronny Cedeno will not return this season due to a pair of pulled hammies. About a month ago, I made the case advocating that teams have been too quick

AL Player Spotlight - September 26, 2009

Carlos Quentin (OF – White Sox) I think it is important to once again point out how truly unlucky Carlos Quentin has been this season. Quentin actually increased both his LD (+1.2%) and FB (+4.6%) rates this season, but somehow

NL Player Spotlight - September 23, 2009

Pablo Sandoval (3B – Giants) Pablo Sandoval has experienced a true breakout in ’09, and in this season, he has adopted a much more patient approach at the plate. He has swung at 11.8% fewer pitches outside the strike zone,

AL Player Spotlight - September 19, 2009

Clay Buchholz (SP – Red Sox) Clay Buchholz picked up another win on Friday night by allowing just 1 ER over 6 IP, but once again he was not dominant in doing so based on his 1 K and 3

NL Player Spotlight - September 16, 2009

Alfonso Soriano (OF – Cubs) With Soriano out for the remainder of the season following knee surgery, we can get a head start on evaluating what was his ’09 season. Soriano posted the lowest OPS of his 9 year career

AL Player Spotlight - September 12, 2009

Randy Ruiz (DH – Blue Jays) Randy Ruiz cracked his 7th homer of the season on Friday night in just his 80th at bat. Ruiz makes for a very interesting case. He has spent 11 seasons in the minors, and

NL Player Spotlight - September 9, 2009

Matt Maloney (SP – Reds) After being sent down due to a procedural move last week, Matt Maloney returned to the bigs last night and pitched fairly well against the Rockies. He only struck out 2 in his 5 IP,

NL Player Spotlight - September 4, 2009

Jeremy Hermida (OF – Marlins) Jeremy Hermida left Wednesday night’s game with a strained intercoastal muscle. He is likely to miss a game or two at the minimum. I can’t quite figure out what to make of Hermida. In ’09

AL Player Spotlight - September 3, 2009

Jarrod Washburn (SP – Tigers) It is being reported that a bum knee is a potential reason for why Jarrod Washburn has a 6.81 ERA since becoming a member of the Tigers. I think I have a better idea as

NL Player Spotlight - September 2, 2009

Tony Abreu (2B – Diamondbacks) Tony Abreu was shipped off to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. After missing all of ’08, Abreu has done a nice job at salvaging some of his prospect status with a .351 / .382 / .609

AL Player Spotlight - August 29, 2009

Andrew Bailey (RP – Athletics) Andrew Bailey re-aggravated a knee injury in Thursday night’s game. Bailey made very little out of the injury, as he has been dealing with it all season long. However, we are approaching the point in

NL Player Spotlight - August 26, 2009

Brett Myers (RP – Phillies) Just a reminder that Brett Myers is still on schedule to join the Phillies bullpen on September 1st. Myers has reportedly been throwing around 93-94 MPH in his rehab appearances. Before landing on the DL

AL Player Spotlight - August 22, 2009

Neftali Feliz (RP – Rangers) The Rangers have rolled out an explicit plan designed to limit the amount of innings Neftali Feliz will pitch this year. This is probably a good move from an organizational and future performance standpoint, but

NL Player Spotlight - August 19, 2009

Ryan Doumit (C – Pirates) Ryan Doumit was dropped down into the 5 spot in the Pirates order on Tuesday night, and has yet to put anything together since returning from injury. Doumit is very clearly pressing at the moment,

AL Player Spotlight - August 15, 2009

Jayson Nix (2B – White Sox) Just when it appeared as though some of Jayson Nix’s playing time was about to dry up with the arrival of Alex Rios, Chris Getz landed on the 15-day DL, which opens up 2B

NL Player Spotlight - August 12, 2009

Jhoulys Chacin (SP – Rockies) After Aaron Cook’s start was pushed back due to injury, Jhoulys Chacin made his first career major league start on Tuesday night. He had a nightmare of a start as he struggled mightily to find

AL Player Spotlight - August 8, 2009

Julio Borbon (OF – Rangers) Julio Borbon was recalled on Friday, and should have the opportunity for some fairly regular playing time while Nelson Cruz is sidelined. Borbon was a supplemental 1st round pick two years ago, who would have

NL Player Spotlight - August 5, 2009

Miguel Montero (C - Diamondbacks) Chris Synder got the start behind the plate on Tuesday night, which gives Montero 4 starts in the 7 games since Snyder's return. In these 7 games, the Diamondbacks have faced left-handed pitching 4 times,

NL Player Spotlight - July 29, 2009

Jason Marquis (SP – Rockies) As has been his style this year, Jason Marquis wiggled his way through 6 effective innings on Tuesday night. As Paul pointed out yesterday, Marquis’ .274 BABIP and 7.7% HR/FB rate are ripe for some

AL Player Spotlight - July 25, 2009

Carlos Guillen (OF – Tigers) Carlos Guillen returned from the DL on Friday, and started both games of a double-header. He was used at DH, and batted 5th in both contests. Guillen returns to quite an ugly .200 / .267

NL Player Spotlight - July 22, 2009

Gaby Sanchez (1B – Marlins) Gaby Sanchez was called up on Tuesday. Sanchez’s defensive skills are ideally suited for 1B, but he has shown the ability to handle the hot corner adequately in Triple-A this year. It is way, way

AL Player Spotlight - July 21, 2009

Sean O'Sullivan (SP - Angels) Sean O’Sullivan was scheduled to start on Monday night, but the game was postponed due to rain. Since the game never even started, it would seem logical to have O’Sullivan get the start Tuesday night

AL Player Spotlight - July 18, 2009

Fausto Carmona (SP – Indians) Carmona has certainly surprised with his immediate effectiveness in the minors. He was dominant in his lone Single-A and lone Double-A start, and now has looked very solid in his three starts at Triple-A (3.79

AL Player Spotlight - July 11, 2009

Brandon Wood (3B - Angels) Brandon Wood was called up yesterday; but, with Vlad Guerrero and Torii Hunter landing on the DL, he still does not have a consistent place to find at bats. Wood ripped up Triple-A last year

AL Player Spotlight - July 8, 2009

Angel Pagan (OF – Mets) Angel Pagan is nearing a return to the majors, and with the Mets outfield desperate for some warm bodies, I see some real value here. Pagan does not offer much at the plate (.713 career

Daisuke Matsuzaka (SP – Red Sox) Dice-K left yesterday for Florida where he will commence a conditioning program. The Sox are essentially treating this as a do-over, and have likened it to Spring Training, which Dice-K missed due to the

Craig Stammen (SP – Nationals) Despite early indications to the contrary, Craig Stammen will remain in the rotation upon the return of Scott Olsen, while Shairon Martis is sent down to Triple-A. I am a bit more bullish on Stammen

Robinson Cano (OF – Yankees) A bounce-back season was predicted from Cano in ’08. This projection was largely based on an unlucky BABIP of .286 in ’08, but we have seen more than just regression to the mean from Cano

Ian Snell (SP – Pirates) Kudos to Paul for predicting the bomb of a start that Snell tossed up against the Indians last night. Snell needed 70 pitches to labor through just 2.2 innings while walking 3 and striking out

Joba Chamberlain (SP – Yankees) Joba was extremely wild on Friday night by needing to throw 100 pitches to make it through just 4 innings. He walked 5 batters on the night, but managed to limit the damage to just

Khalil Greene (SS – Cardinals) Khalil Greene made his first rehab start on Tuesday, which leads me to believe that he’ll get the call back up to the majors in about a week. He was a popular sleeper candidate heading

Ricky Nolasco (SP – Marlins) Ricky Nolasco is expected to be recalled from the minors and will start on Sunday in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez. I still firmly believe in Nolasco, as the peripherals from last year are

Matt Maloney (SP – Reds) With Edinson Volquez hitting the 15-day DL once again, Matt Maloney appears to be the favorite to receive the start on Saturday. The Reds could turn once again to Homer Bailey, but I feel that

Gordon Beckham (SS – White Sox) Gordon Beckham started at 3B in his first game at Triple-A on Thursday. This is significant due to the fact that Josh Fields and Chris Getz are both reeling at the moment. Beckham has

Jorge De La Rosa (SP – Rockies) On Tuesday, Rockies manager Clint Hurdle attributed Jorge De La Rosa’s recent poor performances to problems while pitching from the stretch. The numbers confirm Hurdle’s assertion. With men on base, De La Rosa

Robinzon Diaz (C – Pirates) The Pirates seem to be willing to ride the hot-hand at catcher, since neither Jason Jaramillo nor Robinzon Diaz has significantly out-played the other thus far. Diaz is currently the hotter of the two, as

J.J. Hardy (SS – Brewers) J.J. Hardy had by far his best game of the season on Tuesday night, as he went 3 for 3 with 2 walks and 4 RBI. This line was very much necessary for Hardy owners
