    Eric Karabell

  4. Will Michael Bourn return to previous form?

    Eric Karabell

    It's easy to forget now, but it wasn't too long ago that speedy outfielder Michael Bourn was regarded as a really valuable fantasy option. In 2012, he was a fourth-round pick in ESPN average live drafts. Last season, he was a sixth-rounder. Today, af...

  6. Neil Walker continues powerful start

    Eric Karabell

    Big league second basemen don't generally contend for home run titles, and when one comes along with enticing power, fantasy owners tend to gravitate toward that player. Last season, for example, 26 hitters managed to reach 26 or more home runs, and ...

    Eric Karabell

  9. Don't rush to pick up Dayan Viciedo

    Eric Karabell

    The loss of Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia for the rest of the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder shouldn't send shockwaves through the fantasy baseball world. After all, Garcia, 22, was owned in barely 10 percent of ES...

  10. Can Braves rotation maintain success?

    Eric Karabell

    The Atlanta Braves debut for right-hander Ervin Santana could not have gone much better. The veteran Santana, who was signed seemingly out of desperation after two of the team's starting pitchers ruined their elbows, made his first start Wednesday at...

  11. Is Josh Hamilton worth waiting for?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners will be tempted to cut Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton now that he's on the shelf for at least six weeks, and perhaps more than two months, with a thumb injury, but I think that's a mistake. Sure, I can't possibly know how ...

  12. Should Braun owners sell high on him?

    Eric Karabell

    Much-maligned Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun entered Tuesday with a .150 batting average, nary a home run or a run batted in and a worrisome thumb problem. He'll enter Wednesday hitting .240 with three home runs, seven RBIs and yep, still...

  13. Yordano Ventura electric in season debut

    Eric Karabell

    In a fantasy baseball world that unfortunately gets cluttered with so many injuries -- and there were more significant ones Tuesday -- it's always nice to see a young pitcher with nasty stuff make us smile. It reminds us why baseball is so awesome an...

  14. Nationals preparing for infield shake-up?

    Eric Karabell

    The details regarding Ryan Zimmerman's shoulder injury are starting to become a bit clearer, and it's actually possible that if the Washington Nationals move him over to first base, at least on a part-time basis, there really could be no statistical ...

  15. Don't overreact to Matt Moore's injury

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore is not hurt as badly as it originally looked when he left his Monday outing in the fifth inning, but generally when a pitcher leaves a start in the worrisome fashion he did, clutching...

  16. Middlebrooks, Teixeira land on DL

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into the weekend both Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks and New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira were owned in 100 percent of ESPN standard leagues, each having been selected in the range of the 17th round in ESPN live dr...
