  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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...

  5. Ten players who could soon help in saves

    Eric Karabell

    In the past week we've seen one established closer moved from the NL to the AL where he gets to continue closing (Huston Street), while on Wednesday another ninth-inning option stayed in the AL but saves don't appear to be close to his immediate futu...

  6. 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,...

  7. Buy low, sell high: All-Star Game edition

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- The 85th All-Star Game has come and gone, and while it was clearly a night to honor and celebrate New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter in his final midseason classic, on occasion we certainly see eager fantasy owners assign altered v...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

    Eric Karabell

  11. Can Jimmy Rollins keep rolling?

    Eric Karabell

    Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins singled and stole two bases in Wednesday's win over the San Diego Padres, and it quietly moved the fellow about to become the franchise's all-time hit leader into the No. 15 spot among middle infielders o...

  12. 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...

    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. Top surprises, disappointments thus far

    Eric Karabell

    Surprise! We're finishing up the second full month of the fantasy baseball season and yes, it seems to have flown by. The overriding theme of the campaign has been the ulnar collateral ligament -- whose is torn and whose is not -- but there have been...

  15. Should you buy low on Carlos Santana?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners haven't enjoyed owning Cleveland Indians catcher Carlos Santana this season. Sure, he added third base eligibility early on and he has contributed modest power, but a .159 batting average through nearly two months is painful, and the r...

  16. Injured Beltran among active WAR leaders

    Eric Karabell

    More than half of the top 15 for wins above replacement (WAR) among active players entering this season have been New York Yankees at some point. Perhaps this isn't surprising, but with the news Thursday that Carlos Beltran was placed on the disabled...
