June 4, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (The DSL begins)

As Jim said the other day, today begins reporting for the Dominican Summer League, and also marks the official start of Short Season and Rookie Leagues. Which if you’ve followed us for a long time, you’d know the various Rookie leagues are my personal favorites. There’s nothing more exciting than watching an under-the-radar kid’s stardom unfold as he keeps up with highly touted draft picks and/or top international signings. Jim and I have based our success on these particular leagues 

Despite the American-side rookie leagues, however, the DSL is where several pieces of the UTR bread-and-butter sit/sat and this season should be no different. Although most industry prognosticators look at the DSL as the infant stage in player development, brushing off any stellar production as “kids vs kids”, you simply cannot ignore or waive off such a thing when you’re in a deep-level fantasy league, especially if you want to stay ahead of your opponents. So, for all of your DSL statistical needs, stick with us for another season. We’ll continue to provide the very best performers for you once again.
