  2. 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...

  3. 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 ...

    Eric Karabell

    It's easy to forget now, but it wasn't too long ago that speedy outfielder Michael Bourn was regarded as a really valuable fantasy option. In 2012, he was a fourth-round pick in ESPN average live drafts. Last season, he was a sixth-rounder. Today, af...

  7. Bits: Future ace Michael Wacha shines

    Eric Karabell

    It's amazing how the loaded St. Louis Cardinals continue to develop tremendous young and relevant pitching, almost an embarrassment of riches. Not only will right-handers Shelby Miller and Trevor Rosenthal likely receive Rookie of the Year votes, but...

  9. Bits: Heyward out; Cubs' Castro slumping

    Eric Karabell

  11. Morse undervalued; other injured sluggers

  13. Is Derek Jeter worth adding right away?

    Eric Karabell

    The New York Yankees will welcome back future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter to their lineup Thursday afternoon, and not a moment too soon. No offense to Jayson Nix and pals, but Yankees shortstops weren't helping the team much offensively, featuring a lo...

  14. Morneau shows pop; Straily fires gem

    Eric Karabell

    Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau smacked 19 home runs last season, which isn't really all that much for a former MVP or even a regular at his position, but it helped make him worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues. It also gave hope that ...

  16. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...
