With the 2021 season rolling along, managers are back to making daily lineup decisions. Whether it's an injury, last-minute lineup announcement or off day, there's always key start/sit decisions to be made. That's where we come in.

Leading up to the beginning of the season, we provided a wide range of MLB Draft Guide previews that featured insights on projections, preseason rankings, mock drafts and much more. We're always striving to provide an edge via our premium tools to help dominate leagues from the first pitch all the way to the final out of your championship week.

Stacked with content aimed at providing the knowledge you need to make the perfect lineup decisions in a variety of league formats — from weekly rankings, rest-of-season projections and exclusive expert columns to our trade analyzer, lineup tools and our newest feature in League Sync — we're confident that our latest EDGE+ Roto, EDGE+ Pro and EDGE+ Max packages are the best we have ever produced.

Today, we're taking another look at our trade analyzer. With three weeks of the season in the books, we have a better gauge of where players stand. This helpful tool allows you to input any players of your choosing in a hypothetical trade to gain feedback on the deal, ensuring that you always get the most in return for offloading a player from your roster, as well as identify ideal buy low opportunities.

In this scenario, we're going to look at what pitching value you can acquire by offloading some early-season stat stuffers.
