  1. Remain grounded on outlook for Pujols

    Eric Karabell

    The fact that Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols became the first player to hit his 499th and 500th career home runs in the same game Tuesday night is not reason alone for fantasy owners to trust the future Hall of Famer this season. Afte...

  2. Inside the Julio Teheran-Cliff Lee duel

    Eric Karabell

    PHILADELPHIA -- Entering Wednesday, one complete game had been thrown in baseball this season. It's only a few weeks, but still, it's clearly been a rarity. During the afternoon Wednesday, Cincinnati Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto joined San Diego Pa...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Hang with, or buy low on, Homer Bailey

    Eric Karabell

  5. Adrian Beltre the latest star to hit shelf

    Eric Karabell

    A second member of the top 10 in ESPN average live drafts has hit the disabled list, as Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw has company in Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. However, while Beltre was placed on the DL Sunday, i...

  6. 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...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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...

    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...

  12. Weekend Watch: Matt Kemp returns

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is expected to make his season debut in center field Friday night against the San Francisco Giants, and from what I've read he's feeling pretty confident he's healthy and ready to resume his productive ways. F...

  13. Colabello a shrewd daily league pickup

    Eric Karabell

    The story of Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello is actually kind of interesting, one I followed during the past year due to my investment in one of my deep teams. The Massachusetts native played for most of his 20s in the indepe...

  14. Bonifacio is bona fide for now

    Eric Karabell

    Let's make this clear up front: Chicago Cubs speedster Emilio Bonifacio is not exactly a great baseball player. However, the Cubs have played two games and Bonifacio has nine hits and three stolen bases already. He's the fourth guy in 85 years to sta...

  15. Fantasy potential of Hamilton, Young Jr.

    Eric Karabell

    Two of the five players projected for the most stolen bases in the major leagues this season went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in their season openers Monday, the famed golden sombrero. While it's never a good idea to panic after one game -- there ar...

  16. Andrew Cashner's fantasy ceiling

    Eric Karabell

    The non-Aussie version of the 2014 Major League Baseball season opened Sunday night with the San Diego Padres beating up Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson for a 3-1 win, but the story entering play, and for the first seven innings, was ...
