Fantasy Baseball: Best Value by Position
In the stacked Angels lineup there will be plenty of RBI opportunities,
and we all know about the power aspect of Trumbo's game.
First Base: Mark Trumbo
Finally back to full heath, Utley looks to regain the form he had prior to his injury.
Second Base: Chase Utley
Middlebrooks was on a tier, and played with the best of his position before
an injury ended his 2012 season.
Third Base: Will Middlebrooks
Shortstop: Jimmy Rollins
.300 Average, 23 HR, 83 RBI & 79 Runs if his 2012 stats are prorated over a full season.
Catcher: Salvador Perez
1: Carl Crawford
Former 1st or 2nd round pick before his injury issues. I believe a fresh start out in LA
will do Crawford some good.
2: Alex Rios
Quietly put up a solid 20-20 season last year.
3: Josh Willingham
Not a great hitter for average, but if you're looking for a solid 30 HR, 100 RBI & 90 Runs,
he's your guy.
1. Tim Lincecum
Does one bad season ruin a career? My answer is NO. The guy still sports a career ERA
of 3.31 and is a virtual lock every season for 200 K. I expect a rebound season.
2. Jake Peavy
Player A: 219 IP, 3.37 ERA, 194 K, 49 BB, 1.10 WHIP
Player B: 198.2 IP, 3.94 ERA, 184 K, 52 BB, 1.25 WHIP
*You guessed it, player A is Jake Peavy (player B is Adam Wainwright). Peavy can be drafted on
average 60 picks later.
3. Jon Lester
Looking for a rebound for the ace of the Boston staff to regain his form with John Farrell
back in town, and minus (some) of the circus of last season.
Relief Pitcher: Glen Perkins
Over a K/IP over the last two seasons along with a 2.50 ERA, and on a team most likely
to be in a lot of close games.
