MLB Data Visuals

MLB Data Visuals

These are interactive tables, graphs and charts that allow you to slice the data quickly and make your research process even easier. These visuals will replace the traditional MLB Game Logs and Player Scoring Calendar while adding more tools that I could only dream of in the past. These will continue to be Pro Tools and I believe will add incredible value to the price of your membership. Below is a tutorial to show the new MLB Visuals and a few FAQs. Finally, these tools are FOR YOU. I want to make these as awesome as possible, so please send me all your suggestions and feedback. I can be reached on Twitter or via email.

Introducing MLB Data Visuals

Introducing MLB Data Visuals

This may be the most exciting post I’ve written since the start of DFS On Demand. I have always been a huge fan of gathering as much raw data as possible across the sports and was always challenging myself to find new trends or uncover value options. Based on my own headaches and feedback from readers, it was clear that we needed a new (and easier) way to consume all this data. With that being said, today I am launching the MLB Data Visuals!

These are interactive tables, graphs and charts that allow you to slice the data quickly and make your research process even easier. These visuals will replace the traditional MLB Game Logs and Player Scoring Calendar while adding more tools that I could only dream of in the past.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often will these be updated?

My goal is to still update these every morning so that you have the latest data to view. There may be a few delays in the early days as I get more comfortable with this new process, but I hope to make this as smooth as possible.

Are these free?

As with the other tools that I offer, these MLB Data Visuals will continue to be part of the Membership Service. I believe that be adding these new tools, the value of the membership is even greater. The membership options can be found here.

How do I suggest new visuals?

Yes please! This is only version 1.0. I plan to improve and upgrade these as often as possible but want to do that with your feedback. You can send me a tweet or email me with any of your feedback.

 

MLB Preview, Monday July 3rd – DraftKings & Fanduel

MLB Preview, Monday July 3rd – DraftKings & Fanduel

Pitchers:

Today is a pretty short slate, so I’ll keep it short. At the top we have Marcus Stroman and Masahiro Tanaka, facing each other in New York. I prefer the Yankees starters, Tanaka, who has the higher strikeout upside in this match up. He is priced up, but considering the slate, $9,900 for Tanaka is fair. He has been pretty solid in his past 3 starts, with at least 18 points in 3 of his last 4 starts. For my SP2, I’m looking to Jharel Cotton. He faces the White Sox in Oakland. With pitching today, I’m just looking to not get blown up. Cotton has a good match up in a pitchers park. If you want to punt your second pitcher, you could do worse than Carlos Rodon and Andrew Moore.

Hitters:

Seattle Mariners

Boston Red Sox

Minnesota Twins

C: Leon, Maldonado, Phegley

1B: Bour, Ramirez, Gallo

2B: Cano, Sanchez, Pennington

3B: Moustakas, Seager

SS: Andrus, Simmons, Galvis, Rosales

OF: Betts, Pham, Khris, Bradley Jr, Kepler, Bonifacio, Young, Frazier

Home run calls are Joey Gallo and Miguel Sano.

MLB Preview, Friday June 30th – DraftKings & Fanduel

MLB Preview, Friday June 30th – DraftKings & Fanduel

Pitchers:

A full 15 game slate today, where the pitching options are interesting. At the top we have Jacob deGrom, at home facing the Philadelphia Phillies. He is the cash play, with a safe floor and a high ceiling. The Phillies do strikeout a lot, and deGrom has shown his ability to prevent runs recently. With at least 30 points in his last 3 starts, deGrom is the number one option today. Lance McCullers Jr. takes the ball vs. the Yankees, and he has a discounted price tag at $8,800. He gets to face a Yankees team without some of their starters. Matt Holiday, Starlin Castro, Aaron Hicks and Tyler Austin are all out. Lance has 8Ks in his last 4 starts, and he has already made his first start off the DL, so the leash should be back to normal. Another 8K option is Jacob Faria. He is legit good, and has a good match up. The Orioles are below average wRC+ vs. righties and strikeout above league average. If you want to get crazy Ariel Miranda faces the Angels, so he gets a great match up.

Hitters:

Detroit Tigers – Josh Tomlin faces a right handed heavy Tigers squad. Tomlin sucks to righties with a .377 wOBA. Everyone is in play.

Texas Rangers – Mike Pelfrey isn’t very good. The left handed bats in this Rangers lineup are Odor Gallo, Choo and Mazara. Andrus, Chirinos and Beltre are also in play.

LA Dodgers – Richard is tough on lefties, but the righties should feast in this match up. Bellinger and Seager are in play, but face a tough match up, until they get into the bullpen. Turner, Taylor, Grandal and Barnes all draw the platoon advantage.

C: Contreras, Ramos, Hedges

1B: Morrison, Encarnacion, Bour

2B: Ramirez, Happ, Lowrie

3B: Shaw, Seager, Sano

SS: Lindor, Crawford, Drew

OF: Harper, Dickerson, Granderson, Bonifacio, Yelich, Thames, Renfroe, Margot

Home run calls are Corey Dickerson and Miguel Cabrera

MLB Preview, Wednesday June 28th – DraftKings & Fanduel

MLB Preview, Wednesday June 28th – DraftKings & Fanduel

Pitchers:

Today’s slate might have the worst pitching options of the year. Strasburg leads these options, but in the heat, he struggles. The first pitcher that I have interest in is Masahiro Tanaka, facing an awful White Soxs team. He has gotten the strikeout pitch working the last 3 starts, racking up 27Ks. The White Sox have a right handed heavy lineup, so Tanaka has an even better chance of dealing today. We are going to get to pay up for bats today with my next 2 options. The safe option is Ivan Nova. You can almost guarantee 6IP, but he K upside is in question. He get a K heavy team in the Rays, but Nova himself pitches to contact. Luis Perdomo faces the Braves at home. Perdomo is a super ground ball heavy pitcher, who dominates at home. Both options are GPP only.

Hitters:

New York Yankees – Carlos Rodon is making his first start of the year today, and he gets thrown in the fire against the Yankees. He has been awful in his rehab starts, and struggles to find the strike zone. Judge Sanchez, Gregorius and Torreyes.

Houston Astros – They get to face Jesse Hahn at home. The last time he faced the Astros, he gave up 5 runs. Hahn doesn’t overpower batters, and when the fast guys get on, they will be able to run on any Oakland catchers.

Washington Nationals – John Lackey has been pretty good in a couple of soft match ups, but the Nats are not that. They stole 7 bases of Montero yesterday, and if they start him again the base paths will be wide open again. Lackey doesn’t hold on runners well. The big lefties in this lineup in Harper and Murphy are my favorite plays, with Turner and Zimmerman too.

Toronto Blue Jays – They just burned everyone, and are in a good spot again.

C: Sanchez, McCann, Herrmann

1B: Goldy, Bellinger, Votto, Myers

2B: Murphy, Merrifield, Pirela, Pedroia

3B: Turner, Donaldson, Harrison

SS: Turner, Mercer, Torreyes

OF: Everyone over 5K, Stanton Ozuna, Khris Davis, Chris Young, Margot, Trumbo, Spangenberg

Home run calls: Ozuna, Sanchez and Donaldson

Pitchers:

We have a full 15 game slate today,and we have some tough decisions to make at the pitcher spot. In cash games I’m going to be running out Max Scherzer and James Paxton. We all know Max Scherzer has the play play in cash, so don’t overthink it. He has scored at least 30 points in his last 6 starts. He faces the Cubs in Washington, and the Cubs carry more name value than actual production. James Paxton faces the Philleis in Seattle. He gets a big ballpark, and gets to face the Phillies who do strikeout a lot. Paxton has been roughed up a bit since returning from the DL, but this is a great spot to get back on track. A couple other options are Jeff Hoffman and Sean Newcomb. Jeff Hoffman has a great matchup, facing the Giants in San Francisco. He has been great away from Coors Field and is worth GPPs shares. Sean Newcomb  also has a solid matchup at the Padres. The ballpark is good and the match up is good. GPPs only.

Hitters:

Detriot Tigers – They get a weak lefty that is filling in the rotation for Danny Duffy. The Tigers will could throw 9 right handed bats vs. a lefty. I like the top of the order in Miggy, Upton, Kinsler, Martinez, Castellanos and McCann.

Toronto Blue Jays – The Jays take the Orioles in Toronto. Kevin Gausman is on the bumb and he is awful. Both sides of the plate, he is awful, and everyone is in play.

Miami Marlins – Gsellman sucks and the Mets catcher can’t throw base runners out. The power with Stanton, Bour, and Ozuna, could be too much for Gsellman. Dee Gordon can swipe bags and he will likely lead off.

C: Sanchez, Molina, Pina

1B: Bellinger, Votto, Thames, Adams

2B: Jose Ramirez, Cano, Taylor, DeJong

3B: Sano, Lamb, Shaw, Torreyes

SS: Andrus, Lindor, Simmons

OF: Judge, Haniger, Gamel, Pederson, Khris Davis, Altherr, Happ, Chris Young
