    Eric Karabell

    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

    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...

  8. 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, ...

  9. 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...

  10. Adams valuable, even if Taveras returns

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams played in 52 games before hitting the disabled list in late May with a calf injury, and in that span, he hit a mere three home runs. Adams was getting many singles, beating defensive shifts, but it was har...

    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...

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

    Eric Karabell
