MLB Barometer: The Bigger Picture

This article is part of our MLB Barometer series.

If you're still reading this column each week, thanks for sticking with me deep into the season.

Hopefully, you're making your push toward a league title (or two), but even if it's not in the cards for this season, there is still plenty of information to gather as you begin the prep for a championship in 2019.

I wanted to take a step back and focus on a few bigger picture shifts in value that have resulted with recent promotions, position shifts, lineup adjustments, and swings in production.

The challenge I have had with this piece each week is writing about shifts in value with players that are not available as free agents in the overwhelming majority of leagues. Although, the more consistently actionable advice comes in the weekly FAAB/pickups articles that go up on Sundays.

You've reached the end of our free article preview.
