  1. Add Billy Burns right now

    Eric Karabell

    The best team in baseball promoted one of the best base stealers in the minor leagues Monday, and I, for one, couldn't be more pleased! I remember watching the ridiculously speedy Billy Burns back in March while at spring training in Arizona, and ins...

  2. Why Josh Harrison is worth considering

    Eric Karabell

    A few weeks ago, Pittsburgh Pirates utility player Josh Harrison was one of the rare hitters chosen as an All-Star that fantasy owners could still find in free agency in many leagues. Harrison remains available in roughly half of ESPN's standard leag...

  3. Players to stash away in keeper leagues

    Eric Karabell

    Myriad fantasy baseball owners already have turned their collective attention to that other sport, the one that schedules its meaningless preseason games in August and then gives us four months of intense games mainly on Sundays and Mondays. However,...

  4. Midseason rankings reactions

    Eric Karabell

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could all redraft our fantasy baseball teams today, knowing what we know now? Perhaps the first-place teams would stick with what they've got, but then again, some of those ladies and gents might have used a first-round pick...

  5. Future value of Final Vote candidates

    Eric Karabell

    Final fan voting ends Thursday afternoon, as MLB will announce the last player -- at least for now, before replacements -- for each squad in the All-Star Game. In theory, there's nothing wrong with this idea of choosing one last performer for the gam...

  6. Will Jason Kipnis turn his season around?

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth middle infielder chosen in ESPN average live drafts entered Tuesday as the No. 43 middle infielder on the Player Rater. Yes, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has certainly been a disappointment, perhaps a bit overrated as well...

  7. Pitchers to start at home, but not away

    Eric Karabell

    The excellent and somewhat expected performances by San Diego Padres right-hander Tyson Ross and Miami Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler on Wednesday got me thinking about other hurlers who fantasy owners might rarely think about, but should because h...

  8. Buy or sell on Jake Arrieta?

    Eric Karabell

    Chicago Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta entered Monday at Fenway Park winless in five starts against the Boston Red Sox, with a 5.90 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. This certainly might have led a concerned Arrieta fantasy owner to bench him, citing history, which...

  9. Why Shin-Soo Choo should rebound

    Eric Karabell

    There really doesn't appear to be anything wrong with Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo that patience, health and luck won't fix, so for all his fantasy owners wondering why he's apparently stopped hitting, running and to an odd extent walking, ...

  10. Assessing Manny Machado's value

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, once lauded for his maturity and ability to handle pressure at such a young age, now can't stay out of the news due to his childish and potentially dangerous behavior this past weekend against the Oaklan...

  11. Fantasy value of former No. 1 overall picks

    Eric Karabell

    High school pitcher Brady Aiken was the lucky first overall selection in the MLB 2014 Rule 4 draft Thursday night, and if history is our guide, there's a pretty good chance he'll end up in the major leagues someday, but no guarantees of success. Aike...

  12. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

    A pair of Los Angeles Angels outfielders returned from injury to the lineup Tuesday in Houston, but only one of them lasted the entire game, and it's not the one who was selected first -- or second, in theory, I suppose -- in nearly every fantasy dra...

  13. Gauging Oscar Taveras' value

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to the first week of June, in which the youngest baseball players will be on display as the sport's annual draft is scheduled to begin Thursday night. Then over the next few weeks fantasy owners should see several major league-ready prospects...

  14. What is Tommy La Stella's fantasy value?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners had seemed awfully excited lately about a possible promotion for Atlanta Braves second base prospect Tommy La Stella, and thus there was a palpable buzz on Twitter when this actually occurred Wednesday. La Stella, a patient left-handed...

  15. Versatile Ben Zobrist could be DL-bound

    Eric Karabell

    I've long been a fan and defender of Tampa Bay Rays switch-hitter Ben Zobrist, enjoying his versatility and 20-homer, 20-steal potential. However, being objective, I was also planning to write a blog entry wondering whether he's become a bit overrate...

  16. Aftermath of the Fernandez injury

    Eric Karabell

    Let's start with the good news, shall we? There's an opening in the Miami Marlins rotation, however unfortunate, and someone needs to fill it. As of now it could be one of myriad options, the most intriguing being 22-year-old lefty Andrew Heaney down...
