Razzball Hitter-Tron (aka Hittertron): This tool is designed to identify attractive short-term hitter pickups, to determine when to start/sit hitters on your roster, and for selecting players in fantasy baseball daily leagues like DraftKings as well as other sites such as FanDuel, DraftDay, DailyJoust, StarStreet, FantasyFeud, and FanThrowdown. The higher the $ value, the more attractive the start. Hitter-Tron projections rely on Steamer Rest of Season projections as a foundation and then adjust based on several game-specific factors that include quality of opposing starting pitcher, hitter’s performance vs. the handedness of opposing starting pitcher, park factors, whether the game is home or away, and predicted batting order spot (for Runs, RBIs, and Plate Appearances).
Sorting/Filtering The Table: To sort, click the column header. Clicking once will sort in descending order. Click twice for ascending order. The Name field does not support sorting. The default sorting is based on $U which is a player’s value independent of position ($ factors in position value). To filter, type within the text box underneath the column headers. For text, it looks for any match. For numbers and dates, you can use greater than and less than signs as well (so a 2 in Runs would filter to only players with more than 2 projected Runs). You can use multiple filters at the same time.
$ Values - A hitter’s projected stats for the game are multiplied by 150 and then valued for a 12-team MLB league using the ESPN/CBSSports roster format (13 hitters, 9 pitchers) and a $260 team budget. While the $ values would vary for any other league format, we would expect the rankings to remain relatively the same. For 12-team leagues, $8 is about the ‘average’ hitter start. The ‘$’ estimate takes position value into account. The ‘$U’ estimate is position-neutral and is the value to use when looking at players for Utility slots.
%Start - This is the estimated percentage that a player will start in a game. This takes recent playing time into account including the handedness of the pitcher for platoon hitters. It does not take day-to-day injuries into account – either for the injured player or the fill-in player. Recently called up players who are not undisputed starters may take a couple weeks before their playing time estimate matches reality (until then it’s underestimated). More info can be found in this post.
What Is Your Expected Accuracy? - More info to come but expected correlations will be in line with preseason projection accuracy.
Own% - Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 64 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.
