About The Author

Sayantika is an MLB writer at EssentiallySports. Post her experiences in Web Stories, Sayantika transitioned to a full-time MLB author, actively covering two prime events - 2023-24 Free Agency and 2024 Spring Training. Sayantika developed an interest in the realms of Major leagues when the two-way phenom, Shohei Ohtani, grabbed the world's attention with his staggering deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since then, she has continued to curate stories, infusing her creativity and storytelling approach. Sayantika’s coverage extends beyond the pool, and she takes a specific interest in the progress of the rivalry between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Be it during the games on the field or during the player-acquisition in the offseason. Her stories revolve around various veteran athletes like Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez to rookie players, including Spencer Jones and Yoshinobu Yamamoto. When not writing, she can be found tapping her fingers online, garnering insights into MLB through distinct publications.
