  1. Ten players who could soon help in saves

    Eric Karabell

    In the past week we've seen one established closer moved from the NL to the AL where he gets to continue closing (Huston Street), while on Wednesday another ninth-inning option stayed in the AL but saves don't appear to be close to his immediate futu...

  2. Contact rate hints at fantasy value

    Eric Karabell

    Many fantasy owners pay attention only to the offensive statistics that directly affect them, from home runs to stolen bases, but analytical folks look at far more items that matter, one of them being contact rate. When a hitter makes contact, good t...

  3. What to expect from Headley in pinstripes

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners seem awfully excited about Chase Headley being traded from the San Diego Padres to the New York Yankees on Tuesday, as he vaulted onto the most-added list in hours. While it does free up a potentially valuable player to provide fantasy...

  4. Red Sox hitters to buy or sell

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth-most owned Boston Red Sox hitter -- and seventh-most owned Sox player -- is Brock Holt. Think about that for a minute. These are the defending World Series champions, a team that scored by far the most runs in baseball in 2013, and Holt --...

  5. A closer look at Odrisamer Despaigne

    Eric Karabell

    His name is Odrisamer Despaigne, and you're forgiven if you don't know much about the Cuban right-hander that toils for the San Diego Padres. The franchise that has never had a no-hitter in its history (7,264 regular season games) came close Sunday a...

  6. Players to stash away in keeper leagues

    Eric Karabell

    Myriad fantasy baseball owners already have turned their collective attention to that other sport, the one that schedules its meaningless preseason games in August and then gives us four months of intense games mainly on Sundays and Mondays. However,...

  7. Buy low, sell high: All-Star Game edition

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- The 85th All-Star Game has come and gone, and while it was clearly a night to honor and celebrate New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter in his final midseason classic, on occasion we certainly see eager fantasy owners assign altered v...

  8. Talking baseball with NL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- What a week it's been for Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier! What a season, really. Let's just say few would have guessed that if the Reds were going to have an offensive breakout performer this season, that Frazier, who enter...

  9. Talking baseball with AL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- One of my favorite players to watch this season has been Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, in part because his excellent performance, at least to this level, was unexpected. After all, Dozier was a 20th-round selection in ES...

  10. Projecting second-half power numbers

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Let's get this out of the way right now: Colorado Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau might not have a spectacular second half in the power department, but you're kidding yourself if you think it's because his swing "got all out of wh...

  11. Midseason rankings reactions

    Eric Karabell

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could all redraft our fantasy baseball teams today, knowing what we know now? Perhaps the first-place teams would stick with what they've got, but then again, some of those ladies and gents might have used a first-round pick...

  13. How to deal with injuries to Molina, Phillips

    Eric Karabell

    Earlier this week, the popular injury for preseason top-five first basemen Edwin Encarnacion and Joey Votto was the quad. On Thursday fantasy owners got a few more jolts of bad news with thumb ligament injuries to St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier M...

  14. Future value of Final Vote candidates

    Eric Karabell

    Final fan voting ends Thursday afternoon, as MLB will announce the last player -- at least for now, before replacements -- for each squad in the All-Star Game. In theory, there's nothing wrong with this idea of choosing one last performer for the gam...

  15. Will Jason Kipnis turn his season around?

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth middle infielder chosen in ESPN average live drafts entered Tuesday as the No. 43 middle infielder on the Player Rater. Yes, Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has certainly been a disappointment, perhaps a bit overrated as well...

  16. Yankees hitters to buy and sell

    Eric Karabell

    A mere five players hit more than the 34 home runs outfielder Alfonso Soriano blasted last season, and of the 14 players who reached the 30-home run mark, none registered more than the 18 stolen bases he did. So why did Soriano simply stop hitting an...
