  3. Early 2015 top 10 pitcher rankings

    Eric Karabell

    I think we all enjoy baseball nights when aces are in action, even though I rarely own aces in the first place. Perhaps that's why I enjoy it, to some degree, not really worrying from pitch to pitch about my teams but just reveling in the glory of a ...

  4. Non-closer RPs to consider adding

    Eric Karabell

    Saves aren't everything. Sure, the most popular relief pitchers in fantasy leagues are the ones who pitch the ninth inning with small leads for that very statistic, but as we approach September, it's time for many fantasy owners to take another look ...

  5. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

    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...

    Eric Karabell

  8. What to do with struggling James Shields

    Eric Karabell

    Kansas City Royals right-hander James Shields is putting his fantasy owners in quite a spot, as Tuesday evening was the sixth time in eight outings the top-20 starting pitcher from draft day and long-time reliable had permitted four or more runs in g...

  9. Fantasy value of former No. 1 overall picks

    Eric Karabell

    High school pitcher Brady Aiken was the lucky first overall selection in the MLB 2014 Rule 4 draft Thursday night, and if history is our guide, there's a pretty good chance he'll end up in the major leagues someday, but no guarantees of success. Aike...

  10. Pleasant surprises among top relievers

    Eric Karabell

    Let's talk closers! With roughly a third of the MLB season complete and much upheaval in terms of injuries and torn UCLs and hitters performing below expectations, it's actually been a relatively quiet season so far for closers. After all, of the top...

  11. Can Braves rotation maintain success?

    Eric Karabell

    The Atlanta Braves debut for right-hander Ervin Santana could not have gone much better. The veteran Santana, who was signed seemingly out of desperation after two of the team's starting pitchers ruined their elbows, made his first start Wednesday at...

  12. Yordano Ventura electric in season debut

    Eric Karabell

    In a fantasy baseball world that unfortunately gets cluttered with so many injuries -- and there were more significant ones Tuesday -- it's always nice to see a young pitcher with nasty stuff make us smile. It reminds us why baseball is so awesome an...

  13. Don't overreact to Matt Moore's injury

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore is not hurt as badly as it originally looked when he left his Monday outing in the fifth inning, but generally when a pitcher leaves a start in the worrisome fashion he did, clutching...

  14. Andrew Cashner's fantasy ceiling

    Eric Karabell

    The non-Aussie version of the 2014 Major League Baseball season opened Sunday night with the San Diego Padres beating up Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson for a 3-1 win, but the story entering play, and for the first seven innings, was ...

  15. Bullpen Report: NL saves projections

    Eric Karabell

  16. Fantasy impact of Chapman's injury

    Eric Karabell

    Entering Thursday, there was only one relief pitcher being selected ahead of Cincinnati Reds lefty Aroldis Chapman in ESPN standard drafts. Unfortunately, this will change now that Chapman is likely out until mid-May at least after a scary incident W...
