  2. Assessing Braves bats for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The Atlanta Braves continued their September swoon with a 1-0 home loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, thanks to an Andrew McCutchen home run, pretty much ensuring more losses than wins for the season. The organization parted ways with general ...

  3. When to draft Kemp, Puig in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The words likely most associated with the Los Angeles Dodgers outfield early in the season were expensive, crowded and mostly unproductive. However, while the first word remains true, the other two don't fit any longer, as Matt Kemp has been resurgen...

  4. Red Sox full of fantasy value for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    The Rusney Castillo era began for the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, as the 27-year-old Cuban made his big league debut in center field, hitting seventh and delivering an infield single in four at-bats of a 9-1 loss. This was my first look at Castillo, an...

  5. The value of Holliday, Taveras in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    It's going to be interesting to see how much fantasy owners really want St. Louis Cardinals outfielders Matt Holliday and Oscar Taveras for fantasy purposes next season. The two players will likely handle the corner outfield slots for the perennial N...

  6. Giancarlo Stanton's season done?

    Eric Karabell

    Thursday night was an oddly dark one around the major leagues as several players were hit by pitches and forced to leave games, with the biggest name being potential National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. The excellent Miami Marlins outfielder was st...

  7. Bounce back coming for low-OPS players?

    Eric Karabell

    None of the 152 hitters qualified for the batting title have a lower OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging) than Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, but he wasn't really expected to aid a fantasy team this season. However, several others near the ...

  8. Michael Cuddyer homers in return

    Eric Karabell

    No player has a higher batting average with more than 600 at-bats since the start of the 2013 season than Colorado Rockies outfielder/first baseman Michael Cuddyer -- you can look it up! -- so fantasy owners certainly welcomed his return from the dis...

  9. Juan Lagares running wild

    Eric Karabell

    New York Mets outfielder Juan Lagares entered this season known mainly for his elite glove work as opposed to anything he has shown at the plate, but so far his September play has been extremely valuable for fantasy owners looking for an edge in stol...

  10. What to expect from Michael Wacha

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha never really had a chance to help fantasy owners much in his return to the mound Thursday, but that shouldn't be a problem moving ahead. Wacha tossed 50 pitches in three innings in what ended up being a ...

  11. Dickerson could be top-10 OF in 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Colorado Rockies hitters obviously hold a special place in the hearts of fantasy owners due to playing half their games in a wonderful offensive palace, but it is mildly interesting that only two Rockies finished last season among the top 50 options ...

  12. Fantasy impact of Carlos Gomez injury

    Eric Karabell

    The Milwaukee Brewers and fantasy owners received tough news on the left wrist injury suffered by awesome outfielder Carlos Gomez, one that could keep him out of action the next two weeks, if not more. Fantasy owners wisely love Gomez, who entered Tu...

  13. Surprises abound on leaderboards

    Eric Karabell

    With a month of games to go in the regular season, the races for individual statistical honors are still up for grabs and in most cases they feature some surprising names. That's part of the fun of it for me. Anyone could have predicted Miami Marlins...

  14. Add Yadier Molina now

    Eric Karabell

    The St. Louis Cardinals had to be hoping that when superb catcher Yadier Molina was lost for a few months with a thumb injury, they could merely remain within striking distance of the NL Central lead. Mission accomplished there. The Cardinals are NL ...

  15. Options for Sean Doolittle owners

    Eric Karabell

    A near-top 10 closer for the season on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater hit the disabled list Sunday with an intercostal strain in his side, opening up an opportunity for saves in the Oakland Athletics bullpen. Yes, lefty Sean Doolittle has done quite a...

  16. What to do if you own Garrett Richards

    Eric Karabell

    A wonderful Wednesday night of baseball -- both at the big league level and for the teens and tweens in Williamsport, Pennsylvania -- was a bit overshadowed by the knee injury suffered by Los Angeles Angels right-hander Garrett Richards at Fenway Par...

  17. 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...
