This league was disbanded because it was not full prior to the scheduled draft time.
2021 fantasy baseball leagues will mirror the 2021 MLB season as closely as possible. Drafters should expect the possibility of a later than normal season start, a shorter than 162-game season, universal DH, 7-inning double headers, and more possible changes to the MLB season and games.
All drafted leagues will play out regardless of how or when the MLB season is played. Repeat, if you draft in a league, the league will be played out. Please consider all possibilities, for instance your NL-Only league will play out with or without a universal DH.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner went 1-for-2 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Miami Marlins. Turner has now recorded a hit in his first three spring training games to begin 2021. What is most interesting is that the Nationals appear to be following through with their plan of hitting him in the middle of the order as he once again batted third on Wednesday. Turner's speed is well-known as he has stolen 90 bases across the previous three seasons, but now with the Nationals moving him down in the order, the RBI production could be there as well.
Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's bout with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ramirez has gotten off to a rocky start this spring as he is now 0-for-6 with two strikeouts through his first six at-bats. Ramirez will likely rebound as he gets back into the groove of baseball activities and is a sure-fire first-round selection in fantasy drafts after slashing .292/.386/.607 with 17 home runs, 46 RBI, and 10 stolen bases en route to a second-place MVP finish.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Zach Plesac struggled in his spring debut Wednesday by allowing three earned runs and only striking out two across two innings pitched. The main blow came off a Christian Walker two-run shot in the first inning. Expectations are high for Plesac as he enters his third season in the big leagues after posting a 2.28 ERA, .80 WHIP, and striking out 57 across 55 1/3 innings pitched in 2020. He will be the anchor of several fantasy teams heading into 2021.
The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a contract with outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. The outfielder is slated to sign a $24 million contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, according to reports. The Boston Globe reported that the 31-year-old free agent will sign a two-year deal with a player option after the first season. The center fielder had been seeking a "significant" contract in free agency. He leaves the Red Sox with two World Series rings, a Gold Glove, and an American League Championship Series MVP. Bradley is now 31 years old and is not going to develop the power/speed many foretold when he was younger. With that being said, his defense is elite and should keep him in contention for playing time. Bradley will likely be a platoon/bench player and likely wouldn't be extremely relevant in terms of fantasy production in 2021.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder DJ Stewart had another nice day at the plate in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Braves, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run. Stewarts' fourth-inning shot off of Carl Edwards Jr. was his second of the spring. The 27-year-old hit a poor .193 in 2020, but did have seven HR. With Anthony Santander and Ryan Mountcastle as the projected starters in right and left field, Stewart and Austin Hays are currently battling for playing time in the corner outfield as well as designated hitter. Stewart can certainly improve his standing if he continues to hit well through spring.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Austin Hays had a special day at the plate in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Braves, going 2-for-3 with a single, a two-run home run, and a stolen base. The HR was Hays' first of the spring and came in his first game playing in front of his infant son, Levi, who was born this winter. The 25-year-old put forth a decent showing in 2020, slashing .279/.328/.393 with four HR and nine RBI. However, with Anthony Santander and Ryan Mountcastle as the projected starters in right and left field, Hays will have to contend with Cedric Mullins and DJ Stewart for playing time in the outfield and at designated hitter. The O's could have a surprisingly decent lineup this season, so Hays could be a fantasy sleeper if he can get enough playing time.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber turned in a strong performance on Wednesday, tossing two perfect innings with three strikeouts. Somewhat encouragingly, Kluber's multi-year velocity decline appears to have plateaued as his sinker sat at 91.1 mph on Wednesday, roughly in line with last season's 91.5 mph mark. Fantasy managers shouldn't take much away from one spring training start (especially one that lasted only two innings), but Kluber's first outing in pinstripes was encouraging.
The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a minor league deal with free-agent right-hander Heath Fillmyer on Wednesday, according to sources. The 26-year-old last pitched for the Kansas City Royals in 2019 and will give the Snakes some pitching depth as they enter the 2021 regular season. Fillmyer allowed 20 earned runs in 22 1/3 innings over 12 outings (three starts) for the Royals in 2019 for a brutal 8.06 ERA and 1.79 WHIP while also striking out 15 and walking 12. He was a lot better in his first major league season in 2018 for KC, posting a 4.26 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 57 strikeouts and 32 walks in 82 1/3 innings over 17 outings (13 starts). With just a 6.2 K/9 in 104 2/3 major league innings, the righty will need to lower his free passes if he hopes to find any success.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Tim Locastro tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday night and will be out for 10 days unless there has been a false positive, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Locastro is feeling good and currently has no symptoms. The 28-year-old is expected to have a decent-sized role for the team this year, either as the starting center fielder or as a versatile backup. He hit .290 with two home runs and four stolen bases in 33 games for Arizona in 2020. It's a setback no doubt during camp as he competes for a starting gig, but Locastro still has plenty of time to get ready for the start of the regular season. He could be worth a look in NL-only leagues, but only if he is playing regularly.
Boston Red Sox RHP Bryan Mata (triceps) is scheduled to have an MRI Thursday, March 4, because of right triceps soreness.
St. Louis Cardinals RHP Miles Mikolas (shoulder) is dealing with shoulder stiffness, but it isn't expected to be a long-term issue, according to president of baseball operations John Mozeliak.
Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Domingo Leyba showed off some pop at the plate on Wednesday, as he went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and two runs scored in the win over Cleveland. Leyba missed all of 2020 due to an 80-game suspension after testing positive for boldenone, and is in camp now as a non-roster invite. He has shown 10 to 15 home run potential in the minors while hitting for a high average, but there are several guys in line ahead of him for playing time in Arizona. Managers shouldn't consider Leyba outside of dynasty formats for now, but he could be an interesting waiver-wire pick up if someone goes down with an injury later in the year.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Kyle Garlick went 1-for-3 with a solo blast in the bottom of the fourth inning against Boston for his second homer in Grapefruit League action. The veteran outfielder's blast left the bat at an exit velocity of 100.3 MPH, with his two outs also leaving the bat at 100-plus MPH. Garlick has compiled two homers and five RBI in two games, as he's made a convincing case for a bench spot so far, though there's still a fair amount of time left in spring training. He ended last season on the injured list with an oblique strain- and while he could earn some playing time if he keeps raking like this, he's still going to be hard-pressed to find consistent playing time with Alex Kirilloff and Brent Rooker also in the mix for at-bats.
Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker had a big day at the plate on Wednesday, finishing 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI against the Indians. Walker followed up his breakout 2019 campaign with another solid effort at the plate last year where he finished with a .271/.333/.459 triple-slash line along with seven home runs in 57 games. He'll be a good late-round pick in most formats this year, as well as a must-roster in NL-only leagues.
Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 14-6 loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday. Garver drilled an upstairs fastball offering from Nick Pivetta to right field for a solo shot in the first inning. The dinger left his bat at an exit velocity of 102.4 MPH and traveled 373 feet. While it's only his second game of the spring, it's still encouraging to see the veteran backstop go opposite field, something he did at the lowest rate of his career last season. Garver is now 2-for-4 in two Grapefruit League games with two hits, two runs scored, and a homer. He'll be splitting time behind the plate with Ryan Jeffers this season, but Garver could be a steal at his 213 ADP if he cuts down on the strikeouts and rediscovers his power stroke.
Chicago White Sox C Yasmani Grandal (knee) is making progress in his recovery but there is no timetable for his return, according to manager Tony La Russa.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Raimel Tapia slugged his first Cactus League home run on Wednesday when he went 1-for-2 with a pair of RBI against the Athletics. Tapia took Jordan Weems deep for an opposite-field home run with Brendan Rodgers aboard in the bottom of the third inning. The two-run shot helped make up for a pair of costly errors he committed earlier in the game. The 27-year-old has now led off in two of three Cactus League games for the Rockies and looks primed to start the season as their everyday leadoff man. Tapia put together an excellent 2020 season after a strong finish. He ended with a .321/.369/.402 batting line to go along with one home run, 17 RBI and eight stolen bases over 184 at-bats. He has some holes in his swing and apart from last season has never been a great source for on-base percentage, but he'll carry a lot of fantasy value if he can bat in the top spot for the Rockies this year.
Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Ryan Castellani had a rough outing in his Cactus League debut on Wednesday against the Athletics. He only surrendered two hits, which led to seven runs (four earned), while also walking a pair over his two innings of work. The poor outing wasn't entirely his fault, though, as a few costly errors by first baseman C.J. Cron and left fielder Raimel Tapia factored into the inflated run total. Castellani didn't look sharp for his part, however, as only 24 of his 44 pitches went for strikes. Command was an issue for the 24-year-old last season as well, when he registered a rough 5.82 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 25:26 K:BB ratio over 43 1/3 innings (nine starts). He's currently competing for a rotation spot with Austin Gomber and will need to improve on his command if he wants to win the job. He's not a recommended fantasy arm, even if he does make the starting rotation.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Jimmy Nelson will get the start in Thursday's spring training game against the Chicago Cubs. Top prospect Josiah Gray will make his spring debut in relief. Nelson last pitched in the majors for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2019. He missed the entirety of the 2020 season after undergoing surgery on his lower back. The 23-year-old Gray is one of the team's top prospects. In 2019, he posted a 2.28 ERA and 0.992 WHIP over 130 innings spread across multiple minor league levels. Because the Dodgers are so loaded at pitcher, both players may not make the team's opening day roster.
Colorado Rockies RHP Antonio Senzatela (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring during practice Monday, March 1, and likely will miss two starts, according to manager Bud Black.
