  1. 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...

  2. Remaining value of Darvish, Bailey

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Wednesday, five of the top 20 starting pitchers by ESPN average draft position this season -- a quarter of them! -- had that annoying asterisk next to their name denoting their place on the disabled list, and as we found out earlier this wee...

  3. Who's on pace for 20/20 seasons?

    Eric Karabell

    It's not easy as it used to be to finish a baseball season with more than 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Nine players achieved the feat last season, 10 the year before and 12 in 2011. Basically, the trend of five-category fantasy options continues...

  4. Versatile Ben Zobrist could be DL-bound

    Eric Karabell

    I've long been a fan and defender of Tampa Bay Rays switch-hitter Ben Zobrist, enjoying his versatility and 20-homer, 20-steal potential. However, being objective, I was also planning to write a blog entry wondering whether he's become a bit overrate...

  5. Is Adam Jones poised for a big May?

    Eric Karabell

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones entered Wednesday's game hitting .252 with one home run in five weeks, this after consecutive 30-plus homer campaigns plus enough stolen bases to matter earned him second-round status in ESPN leagues. Naturally...

  6. Hang with, or buy low on, Homer Bailey

    Eric Karabell

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey entered his Monday outing against the Pittsburgh Pirates having been torched for four runs in each of two outings by the strong St. Louis Cardinals lineup, leaving many of his fantasy owners concerned. Bailey...

  7. Jason Heyward capable of greatness

    Eric Karabell

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward has yet to reach his 25th birthday. That's right, the team's leadoff hitter is in his fifth season but is still just 24, still full of promise and upside. And the two-run homer he smacked off Milwaukee Brewers ...

  8. Disappointing Sandoval homers thrice

    Eric Karabell

    San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is listed on his player card at 240 pounds, and perhaps that's accurate, but I'm taking the over. Kung Fu Panda, as he is affectionately known, has battled weight issues in the past, and it's likely a...

  9. Can Josh Reddick keep hitting homers?

    Eric Karabell

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick entered this past weekend hitting .203 with only five home runs in 82 games, and looking nothing like the breakout performer who smacked 32 home runs in 2012. Reddick wasn't highly coveted in ESPN live drafts...

  10. 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...

  11. Assessing the Reds' rotation sans Cueto

    Eric Karabell

    The big news involving the Cincinnati Reds' rotation this past weekend involved its most annoying member (fantasy-wise) leaving his Friday outing prematurely and heading to the disabled list yet again, while its most intriguing option is becoming fan...

  12. Outlook for Ryan Braun, Brewers bats

    Eric Karabell

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is having another fine season, hitting better than .300 and on roughly a 30-homer, 100-RBI pace, but there's been one statistic notably missing and it's why he hasn't been one of the very best fantasy options s...

  13. Moreland no longer Rangers' 'weak link'

    Eric Karabell

    A month ago, the focus on Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland was on how he was the weak link in a strong lineup and should be replaced in the lineup by hotshot prospect Jurickson Profar. Ian Kinsler would slide from second base to first base ...
