  1. 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 ...

  2. Should Braun owners sell high on him?

    Eric Karabell

    Much-maligned Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun entered Tuesday with a .150 batting average, nary a home run or a run batted in and a worrisome thumb problem. He'll enter Wednesday hitting .240 with three home runs, seven RBIs and yep, still...

    Let's hear it for the old guys! Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter hit his 11th home run Wednesday and doubled twice in a rout of the Washington Nationals, raising his batting average to .316. Hunter, 38, completed a stellar July in which he hit ...

    Eric Karabell

    It's been two weeks since Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes delivered an impressive, winning show at the Home Run Derby at Citi Field, and finally he's hit a blast in a game that counts. More are forthcoming. Is it a Derby jinx or just one...

  5. Bits: Ruf gets chance; Hefner pitching well

    Eric Karabell

    Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard smacked a long home run off Atlanta Braves lefty Paul Maholm on Friday night, and it understandably sent some fantasy owners into a tizzy on Twitter. After all, Howard used to be one of baseball's preem...

  6. A-Rod back in action; Bailey unhittable

    Eric Karabell

    Baseball's active home run leader participated in his first game of the season Tuesday night for the Charleston (S.C.) RiverDogs, and while Alex Rodriguez still has a way to go before he's actually manning third base for the New York Yankees, hey, it...

  7. Bits: Werth, Harper deliver for Nationals

    Eric Karabell

    While Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper made news Monday by coming off the disabled list and -- naturally -- smacking an opposite-field home run in his very first at-bat, fellow outfielder Jayson Werth was the one who finished with an eye-...

  8. Projecting HRs: Who will hit the most?

    Eric Karabell

    It might seem crazy to bet against Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera leading the majors in pretty much whatever he wants to, but when predicting the final home run leaders for 2013, based on what we know so far and what I think will happen, I'm g...

  9. Granderson's return alters Yankees' lineup

    Eric Karabell

    What interests me most about the return of New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson to the lineup is not, oddly enough, the two-time 40-home run, 100-RBI player himself. Granderson is going to play regularly. He's going to hit home runs and stri...

  10. Can we still believe in Eric Hosmer?

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into Thursday's games, plenty of players with 100 at-bats this season had yet to hit a home run, but the names read like a who's who of powerless singles hitters, from Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus to San Francisco Giants infielder Mar...

  11. Time to pick up Yuniesky Betancourt?

    Eric Karabell

    Let's be clear right off the top: It's not outrageous that Milwaukee Brewers infielder Yuniesky Betancourt is one of the most added players in ESPN leagues, as he is improbably mashing one home run after another and stunning the fantasy wor...

  14. Bits: Stanton off the home run schneid

    Eric Karabell

    Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton worried many a fantasy owner the first three weeks of this season; he entered last Wednesday hitting .176 with one lonely RBI in 14 games. But good things come to those who wait: Stanton launched his first h...
