Roster Resource (MLBDepthCharts was created and launched in February 2009. The goal was to become a valuable resource for baseball fans by offering up-to-the-minute roster projections in the offseason and an accurate look at a team’s organizational depth throughout the entire year.
In July 2011, MLBDepthCharts was named to SI.com’s inaugural Twitter 100, a list honoring the most essential twitter feeds in the sports world. The site has also received Twitter shout-outs from ESPN’s Senior Fantasy Analyst Matthew Berry, former Dodgers GM Dan Evans, and Hall of Fame baseball reporter Peter Gammons. In addition, the site has been referenced in numerous articles on websites that include FanGraphs, Baseball-Reference, Grantland, and Sports Illustrated’s February 28, 2011 cover story titled ‘Brave New World’. A 2013 episode of MLB Network’s “Clubhouse Confidential”also referenced MLBDC’s “How Assembled” charts.
