  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. 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,...

  3. Surprising end-of-season predictions

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to Friday the 13th, the only one of this entire calendar year, and one can be sure if there's an impactful baseball injury on this day many a fantasy owner will blame it on bad luck because of the number 13. Without getting into how ridiculou...

  4. What impact will Kendrys Morales have?

    Eric Karabell

    The Minnesota Twins were the surprise franchise that ended up with noted free-agent slugger Kendrys Morales this weekend on a one-year contract. Morales, who hit 45 home runs the past two seasons for the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels and sh...

  5. Victor Martinez flashing surprising power

    Eric Karabell

    Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is quickly becoming one of the more valuable players in fantasy, but my favorite stat on him is this: In an era of ridiculous strikeout totals by hitters, Martinez has actually homered more times than ...

  6. Sleeper stolen base options for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    One of my favorite players to watch while seeing spring games in Arizona last week was Oakland Athletics outfielder Billy Burns, because pretty much every time the guy got on base -- and he was on base quite a bit -- he tried to steal second. And at ...

  7. Bits: Brewers sleepers emerging; Tulo sits

    Eric Karabell

    The Milwaukee Brewers certainly aren't playoff-bound, but it hasn't stopped several of their more unheralded players from becoming interesting in fantasy baseball. Right-hander Marco Estrada dominated the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, allowing one hit o...

  8. Bullpen Report: Helpful middle relievers

    Eric Karabell

    So it's mid-August, and a buddy of mine in one of my many leagues just noticed the small print on a pretty critical rule that really affects his team: There's a starts limit of 200 in our league. Perhaps there is in yours as well, and while you shoul...

  9. Assessing values of Soriano, other Cubs

    Eric Karabell

    While the baseball world awaits a resolution on the annoying Alex Rodriguez situation (like the Ryan Braun saga, it's not likely to end well), the New York Yankees have reportedly been trying to acquire another right-handed bat, one certainly familia...

  10. Can Marlon Byrd's power surge continue?

    Eric Karabell

    I spent a reserve bench pick on New York Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd in the LABR NL-only auction the first weekend of March, hoping the guy would just make the team. After all, the goal late in a one-league format is often to simply find playing time...

  11. 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...

  12. Examining June's offensive leaders

    Eric Karabell

    While Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was undoubtedly the most intriguing individual baseball story from June -- I hear they're getting his Hall of Fame plaque prepared this week -- there was actually one player who eclipsed him on the ESP...

  13. Bits: Thoughts on Pence, Gallardo ...

    Eric Karabell

    Two San Francisco Giants outfielders were 13th-round picks, on average, in ESPN standard drafts for this season, which surprised me a bit. One was Hunter Pence, who I thought was seriously underrated on draft day. He made my top 100, and while I didn...

  14. Closer Report: Gregerson gets his chance

    Eric Karabell

    For years, San Diego Padres right-hander Luke Gregerson has been discussed as one of the many top setup men on the verge of becoming a closer. Now that the opportunity has mercifully arrived, he deserves attention in all leagues. What, Huston Street ...

  15. 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...

  16. Can Gerardo Parra keep up the pace?

    Eric Karabell

    One of the main reasons it was easy to be skeptical about whether Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra would be able to continue his exceptional season was the competition on his own team. After all, the Diamondbacks figured to use lefty hit...
