Fantasy Impact:

A humidor is a climate-controlled chamber in which baseballs are stored. The general principle is that when a ball is stored in a humidor, it absorbs water, decreasing its bounciness and thus reducing how far a ball can be hit. Park factor concerns for Greinke should now be less concerning when drafting him or any Arizona pitcher. Balls should also be less dry which can provide a boost in grip and control for pitchers.
