Aaron Judge: The Verdict Is In

Everything is bigger in New York – but no-one is bigger than Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees’ 6-foot-7, 282-pound slugging outfielder that has taken Major League Baseball by storm. The 25-year-old rookie leads the American League in … well, just about everything, and the “Baby Bombers” are in first place in the American League East. The car-length California native has been nothing short of baseball’s most valuable player this season – as his MLB-best 4.1 WAR attests.


Mad Max Giving Hitters Fits Over the Last Month

No starting pitcher has been more effective lately than Washington Nationals righty Max Scherzer. Over the last 30 days, the 32-year-old Scherzer has the lowest ERA among MLB starters at 1.13, ahead of C.C. Sabathia (1.21), Robbie Ray (1.30), Corey Kluber (1.61) and Brandon McCarthy (1.91). Over that stretch, no starting pitcher has struck out a higher percentage of batters than Kluber (39.7 percent), and no one is allowing a lower batting average against (.132) or has a lower WHIP (0.63), either.

Which Round is it Best to Draft a QB?


Quarterbacks come in all shapes and sizes. Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger is one of the best in the league, and he checks in at 6-foot-5, 241 pounds. Seattle’s Russell Wilson is also part of that elite class, despite being just 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds. New England’s Tom Brady is the best of the lot, and he’s somewhere in between at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds.


New Homes For Veteran Wide Receivers


While many NFL teams will be looking to add new wide receivers to their roster in this week’s draft, several teams already shored up this need via free agency. Let’s take a look at some of the bigger wide receiver signings with help from Sportradar’s Research Team and the NFL’s Next Gen Stats. The route maps displayed represent the route a receiver ran every time they were targeted in a specific game. Yard numbers represent the distance from the line of scrimmage. If you are interested in including NFL route maps in your content or in an app, please contact our sales team to learn more.


MLB Data Feed Enhancements


Sportradar is deeply committed to providing you the very best Major League Baseball data and content coverage. Take advantage of three new enhancements to our MLB API this season!

The Ponle Acento Initiative (v5 and v6)

In an effort to accommodate Major League Baseball’s Ponle Acento initiative, Sportradar will be adding Spanish accent marks to player names beginning on March 30th. This initiative was started by Robinson Cano last year in an effort to recognize the influence of the game’s Latino athletes.
This change will affect all feeds where players’ names appear. For example, Robinson Cano will now be Robinson Canó and Felix Hernandez will now be Félix Hernández. This change will only be present for players that have specifically submitted this request.
