Hey UTR Junkies…..the time has finally arrived. Full season leagues in the minors get underway today. And though most of us enjoyed a mild winter, it looks like the cold winds from the north are returning, along with some snow, and could create havoc in most opening series. Marc and I are raring to go. Our fantasy drafts are in the books and the cells on our blank tracking spreadsheets are just waiting to be filled-in. Again, we want to thank all of our readers and followers who made this past off-season our best yet. As we embark into our 3rd season at UTRMinors and our 8th year of tracking under the radar players, our energy level has never waned. We hope to see the site grow in popularity, as we take another big step with our work in 2016.
If you’re new to the in-season coverage here at UTRMinors, Marc (hitters) and myself (pitchers) will breakdown each night’s boxscores within LoA and HiA. The very next day, we will post those who had the best daily performances, along with possible blurbs about that performance or player. We will also provide coverage for the Dominican Summer League, all Rookie Leagues (GCL, AZL, Appy, PIO, etc), Short-Season (NWL, NYPL) when they get underway.
Check back with us on April 8th and everyday through August…. and make sure you have fresh legal pad or notebook handy to jot-down the next UTR standouts.
