Five First Base (1B) Deep Sleepers for 2014 Fantasy Baseball

  Five 1B Deep Sleepers for 2014 Analyzing first base is one fantasy proposition, but predicting the 2014 season’s breakouts is an entirely different ball game (pun intended).  Generally, when we think of the position’s elite options, we think of the slow contributor with no SB who provides a hefty percentage of your team’s HR...

Kolten Wong (2B, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Kolten Wong, one of the Cardinals' top prospects, has arrived. He's debuting to open up a weekend series against the rival Cubs. Well, if you haven't been informed yet, Wong has impressive abilities with the bat. He's a plus-contact hitter with above-average speed. Assuming he stays in the... Read More

Mark Reynolds (1B, 3B, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: The Yankees have made their second significant transaction-- first they acquired Alfonso Soriano, and now it's Reynolds. After witnessing Soriano's impact post-trade, the former Indian third baseman figures to earn a starting gig. Even with A-Rod healthy, Reynolds should still find a spot in the lineup on most...

A Dynasty League Trade-off: Prospecting for Success

For seasonal league owners and in some cases for keeper league owners, the goal is always to win now.

Marco Estrada (SP, RP, MIL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Marco Estrada was an interesting draft pick going into the season, but he failed to impress before getting injured in late May. The Brewers' rotation has been scuffling with injuries recently, but the right-hander finally appears healthy again. In two starts since coming off the D.L., all Estrada... Read More

Emilio Bonifacio (2B, OF, KC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Emilio Bonifacio has not offered mixed-leaguers much production, but all of that could change soon. He is no longer a Blue Jay, as he has been acquired by the Royals. The speedster has hit for a measly average (.218) while failing to steal bases at respectable clip (1 SB for... Read More

Chia-Jen Lo (RP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Two weeks have already gone by since the Veras trade, and the Houston closer saga still remains unresolved. The team opted to go with a closer-by-committee approach, but only two save opportunities have arisen. Jose Cisnero was initially expected to take over the role, but it never came to fruition....

Brandon Belt (1B, SF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Brandon Belt has earned N.L. Player of the Week honors, but don't expect him to slow down any time soon. The preseason breakout candidate is seeing the ball better right now than he has all season. The 2 HR and 5 RBI last week may not have turned many heads,... Read More

Brian Dozier (2B, SS, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Dozier has been one of the few bright spots in the Minnesota lineup this year. Since the start of his recent outburst, he has transformed into a doubles machine: he has doubled in eight out of his last 13 games played, while posting five multi-hit performances. In fact,...

Dane De La Rosa (RP, LAA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Ernesto Frieri has recently been removed from the closer's role for the second time this season. This time around, however, it appears other relievers will get a chance to audition for the the role. Just one day prior to the closer change, De la Rosa notched his first... Read More

Darin Ruf (1B, OF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Darin Ruf has become the Phillies' everyday 1st baseman with Ryan Howard on the shelf. The Creighton product has recorded a hit in 11 out of 13 games, since receiving everyday at-bats. Today he went 2-for-4 with a HR, 2 RBIs and 2 Runs.  Over the last 14... Read More

So You're Playing for Next Year: Keeper League Values Around the Diamond

We've come to the point in the fantasy baseball season when, especially in roto leagues, it's all but clear which teams are contending for the money spots.  In keeper and dynasty formats, it's important for those teams that are out of contention to make some transactions with an eye toward next year.  This means evaluating...

Alex Avila (C, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: After his game-winning, three-run shot against the Indians, Avila has now amassed three home runs in his last five games. With Miguel Cabrera hobbling and Prince Fielder slumping, the Tigers have discovered their newest offensive weapon. His .325 BA since the start of his recent hot-streak may be... Read More

Danny Farquhar (RP, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Tom Wilhemsen has been removed from the closer role for the second time, and now demoted to AAA.  Danny Farquhar has been handed the the last two save opportunities, and has converted them. There are no guarantees that he'll run away with the job, but it appears it is his... Read More

Jose Cisnero (RP, HOU) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: Earlier today, Houston's closer Jose Veras was dealt to the Detroit Tigers. With the closer's role now vacant for the Astros, Jose Cisnero is expected to become the main beneficiary for saves. If the team chooses an alternative option or opts to use a committee, Wesley Wright and Josh Fields... Read More

Eduardo Nunez (3B, SS, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Entering the season, the 26-year-old was handed (not earned) the starting shortstop role, thanks to a Derek Jeter injury. Being given a prime opportunity to prove himself as a regular, Nunez failed to take advantage. In an April to be forgotten, he batted a putrid .203 with a 13/7 K/BB... Read More

Junior Lake (3B, OF, CHC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS: With a name sounding like a summer camp or amusement park, Lake has been flat-out raking since making his debut last week. The young third baseman has batted .484 while recording four multi-hit games in his first 7 major-league games. A slight regression is inevitable, but an impressive strikeout rate... Read More
