August 14, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (Wrapping it Up)

Yesterday marked Jim’s final UTR Pitcher Performance of the Day post for 2016. Within this years PP posts, Jim reached quite the milestone reaching over 10,000 entries in his seasonal spreadsheets. Since the beginning, Jim has tagged 18 weeks as the point in the season where minor league pitching staffs thin out, making it difficult to designate starter lines from long relief.  No longer do managers game plan a young hurler to go the distance. So, it’s rare to see a pitcher toss more than 5 innings in a mid-to-late August boxscore.

The three-week hiatus Jim takes before the conclusion of the minor league season gives him a chance to Factor Score all of his pitchers, which is a precursor to shifting each pitcher line into his TPS score. Over time, on top of our Organizational All-Stars and “Ones to Watch” (formerly Breakouts), Jim has added several more criteria to his pitchers such as Legit UTR, Roster Stash, Possible Flier and Instant Roster Add. These are basically tiers/categories that help fantasy players determine the urgency in which to add a young hurler. And knowing that information can be critical to fantasy success.

Now, you’ll see that I’m continuing to run my Hitters of the Day posts. This will continue for another week. This leads up to the start of the collegiate fall semester in which I have to prepare for. Once the minor league regular season concludes, I, too, will be preparing my off-season spreadsheets with PAG/APPA scores. I plan to go back to the intricate basics which I employed in 2014. My future lists may not look as they did back then, but the comprehensive stat runs I waived off for 2015 off-season will not happen again. Despite 2016 being a less-than-stellar year for UTR hitters, trust me, I’m incredibly excited to dive into the off-season work. So, look for next Monday August 22nd as my final daily Hitter post of the season.

Equalling Jim’s sentiments, thanks for following us all season long. It means everything and we wouldn’t have the drive without the love and support from everyone.
