With a 162-game regular season and ever-changing rosters of 30 teams, professional baseball is one of the most challenging fantasy sports. Because fantasy baseball involves constant monitoring, here are some apps to help stay on top of the latest news from across the league.
Rotoworld Fantasy News is a one-stop shop. This fantasy sports app gives you the latest football, baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, soccer and racing news. It will alert you to the latest player updates, injury reports and analysis. Downloading this app during fantasy baseball means you’ll have it on hand for all of your other fantasy leagues throughout the year.
Strategizing your lineup for each game is very important. Batter vs. Pitcher has statistics from batting and pitching match-ups in professional baseball games dating back to the 1940s. Select one or more batter and pitcher to match up, then see hitting statistics for all possible combinations. Once you’ve got your lineup set, play the Guess the Average game included in the app to test your batting average prognosticating skills and see how many runs you can score.
To help increase the chances of winning your fantasy league, use Fantasy Alarms, the app awarded the 2013 “Most Innovative Fantasy Product or Service” by the Fantasy Sports Trade Associations. This fantasy sports app gives you direct access to the information the press uses to report on breaking news and team and player information for fantasy sports. Within seconds of news released by the team, you receive an alert on your mobile phone or tablet. The alerts tell you when a player on your roster does not appear in the daily lineup or when one is moved to or from the DL, minors or inactive list. The app also alerts you to game rainouts or postponements – and it predicts a pitcher and closer.
The season is just beginning, so download some of these fantasy sports apps and start taking the lead in your league.
