  1. Fantasy value of Pirates lineup

    Eric Karabell

    The Pittsburgh Pirates enter Tuesday having lost six games in a row, but don't worry, center fielder Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to return to save the day! The defending NL MVP has apparently recovered from his rib injury and Tuesday is the first d...

  2. What to do if you own Josh Hamilton

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia certainly raised eyebrows this past weekend when he said outfielder Josh Hamilton, now in his second season with the club, is not the same player he was previously with the Texas Rangers. Perhaps it's a motiva...

  3. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  4. Astros' Chris Carter keeps on slugging

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps Houston Astros outfielder Chris Carter will never win a batting title -- hey, crazy things do happen in this sport -- but let's give this low-average hitter plenty of credit for the fine season he's having. Carter smacked two more home runs T...

  5. Takeaways from Cliff Lee's 2014 season

    Eric Karabell

    Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee didn't figure to be among the traded on Thursday before the non-waiver deadline, as he had pitched only twice since missing significant time with a left flexor pronator strain, and hadn't pitched so well. W...

  6. Masterson's new value as a Cardinal

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals acquired right-hander Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians for minor league outfielder James Ramsey Wednesday, a day before Thursday's trading deadline. Although I've never been a big Masterson fan, he really could impr...

  7. Players to get before trade deadline

    Eric Karabell

    Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline is Thursday afternoon -- I mean, nobody's been talking about this for the past month, right? -- and while we can't possibly know for sure which players will actually be sent to new teams, I have a few hunches the ...

  8. 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...

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Sunday's All-Star Futures Game at beautiful Target Field showcased plenty of power-hitting prospects on the rise, with myriad reporters congregating around the lockers of Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and Texas Rangers third b...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. What to do with struggling James Shields

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Royals right-hander James Shields is putting his fantasy owners in quite a spot, as Tuesday evening was the sixth time in eight outings the top-20 starting pitcher from draft day and long-time reliable had permitted four or more runs in g...

  13. 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...

    Eric Karabell

  15. 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, ...

  16. Fantasy impact of position changes

    Eric Karabell

    Most times that I've talked to a baseball player about the potential effects a position change will have -- or is having -- on them at the plate, they've looked at me like I was an alien from outer space. In other words, although these guys are human...
