The Daily Dugout: Prospects, Padres, Pitchers, and PORN!!

By | May 18, 2017

OK, so I lied about the “PORN!!” but 3 outta 4 ain’t bad right? Eh, sonny boy? Zip it up chief, here’s a wrap up of today’s major fantasy baseball analysis:

  • Razzball has a great post on their Top 50 Prospects for Fantasy Baseball.  This list differs from other prospects lists (like Jonathan Mayo’s) because it is solely concerned with fantasy production in 2011.  The top three are all pretty close although I think Jeremy Hellickson will be the best of the lot.
  • RotoAuthority wrote an interesting article a couple days ago comparing Travis Wood and Mike Leake in their battle for the Reds’ fifth starter spot.  It is a tough call but I have to agree with them in predicting Wood, I think he has proven to be more consistent up to this point.
  • Fantasy Baseball Hot Stove analyzes Victor Martinez, who as you know will now be playing half of his games in the less-hitter-friendly Comerica Park.  The bigger outfield could surely hurt his home run numbers but he will still get you a ton of production at RBI and Avg. If other managers choose to shy away because of the move, pay them no mind and swoop him up.  He is still one of the best options at a shallow position.
  • Baseball Guys has a great analysis of the sleeper potential of the Padre’s Tim Stauffer.  I know what you are thinking. Why should we care about Tim Stauffer? Isn’t he coming out of the bullpen? Well he has a shot at locking up the fifth starter spot this spring which would make him worth a late round flyer.  Check out his performance down the stretch last year.
  • Speaking of which, Yahoo’s Brad Evans has a few things to say about the San Diego Padres.  His intrepid colleague Brandon Funston answers questions about the Seattle Mariners, including some tidbits regarding Dustin Ackley’s possible 2011 arrival and Justin Smoak’s potential for this year.
  • RotoHardball highlights a guy that you should definitely be targeting in keeper leagues this year, and at least have him in your back pocket in regular leagues.  Mike Moustakas, the Kansas City Royals third basemen of the future, is – to put it simply – a beast.
  • The Hardball Times wants to help you find that elite sleeper starter, the high-K/9, sub-4.0-ERA type.  This article throws out a few names you may find surprising.  All I gotta say is draft Dan Hudson. Just trust me on this.
