Hello everyone and welcome back to the Minor League Ball Gameday. It's FanDuel Friday and I've made one minor tweak to the spreadsheet with the Duels of the Day getting their own tab in the spreadsheet instead of being buried beneath the Top 175 Pitchers.

The first stat update of the year is scheduled to hit the press tomorrow afternoon/evening, and I will also be working on an article covering some of the hottest starts of the year. Once all of that is taken care of, I'm going to introduce a Duel of the Day counter to keep track of how many times each pitcher is selected as a participant.

Our incredible tech support, kicker31, took care of the minor issue some of you encountered yesterday with the hitters stats. Go ahead and click the link below for the Gameday spreadsheet, which will open in a separate tab in your browser. Below that you will find the schedule for today's slate of games, the Duel's of the Day, and our running injury list.

The Top 175 Prospects, Sleepers, and IFA's
