Today, I want to talk about several players that are intriguing going into the 2013 baseball season; all of these players are of interest for different reasons. Some of them are young, others are old, but you should be taking a second look at all of these guys going into your fantasy drafts.
Brandon Beachy, SP, Atlanta Braves
At just 28 percent owned in Yahoo leagues, 25 percent owned in CBS leagues and 24.4 percent owned in ESPN leagues, Beachy is worth stashing on the DL during your drafts.
Jonny Gomes, OF, Boston Red Sox
2005 (101 games) - 21 HR
Gomes is slated to be the starter in left field for Boston and does not have much competition behind him. Minor League journeyman Daniel Nava is second on the depth chart at that position, followed by Mike Carp. Both players have some upside, but not nearly as much as Gomes presents.
Gomes is currently owned in 4 percent of Yahoo leagues, 4 percent in CBS leagues and less than 1 percent owned in ESPN leagues. You could do worse than Gomes with a late-round selection.
Lonnie Chisenhall, 3B, Cleveland Indians
Chisenhall also showed some maturity when he spoke to the media about his status coming into camp. "I can just focus on doing the work," Chisenhall said. "In the past I put too much pressure on myself to try and impress the people that made the decisions. This year, I'm coming in with a little different look at it."
Chisenhall is now 25 and the Indians are committed to him at third. He is 7 percent owned in Yahoo leagues, 10 percent owned in CBS leagues and 3.4 percent owned in ESPN leagues.
Darin Ruf, OF, Philadelphia Phillies
Ruf flashed some power in 12 Major League games with the Phillies, tallying three home runs, 10 RBIs and a .333 AVG.
Ruf is just 4 percent owned in Yahoo leagues, 5 percent owned in CBS leagues and 3.8 percent owned in ESPN leagues.
Some other players to consider later on in fantasy drafts include: Garrett Jones, Hiroyuki Nakajima, Jurickson Profar, Chris Nelson, Andy Dirks, Matt Carpenter, Shelby Miller, Trevor Rosenthal, Bruce Rondon, Erasmo Ramirez, Tyler Skaggs, Wily Peralta, Trevor Bauer, Bobby Parnell, Wade Davis and Chis Tillman.
