THE BAT X Projection System by Derek Carty

THE BAT X Statcast-Based Projections Have Been The
Most Accurate Original Season-Long Projections the Last 3 Years

Derek Carty has developed THE BAT over the past 10+ years and 10,000+ hours, using skills and methods developed from his time in the sabermetric community working with some of the best baseball minds in the world, many of whom are now making decisions for championship-winning MLB clubs. THE BAT incorporates all the necessary basics, like park factors and platoon splits, plus many lesser-considered factors like air density and umpires to give you an edge on the competition. And starting in 2020, it began using Statcast data!

When tested, THE BAT proved even more accurate than Vegas and is regularly found to be the most accurate season-long projection system in third-party tests! Plus, it works with RotoGrinders’ LineupHQ, helping you build your ideal lineups for both cash games and GPPs!

Derek Carty

You may recognize Derek Carty from his role on Baseball Tonight, his articles at, or his occasional SportsCenter appearances. He’s also been published by FOX Sports, Sports Illustrated, NBC’s Rotoworld, FanDuel, and Fantasy Insiders, among many others. He’s a long-time DFS player and the creator of THE BAT and THE BLITZ, perhaps the most sophisticated DFS projection systems on the market. Prior to DFS, Derek honed his statistical chops as the Fantasy Manager of two of the biggest sabermetric outlets, Baseball Prospectus and The Hardball Times (now the nerdier branch of FanGraphs — yes, that’s a thing), and holds an elite track record in year-long expert leagues (6 titles while finishing top-3 over 50% of the time). He’s also the only active fantasy writer to have graduated from MLB’s exclusive Scout School, which he blends with his statistical background to form a complete picture of a player.
