Fantasy Baseball Rankings Report - AL
Fantasy baseball players must follow changes in preseason rankings, including how injuries, depth chart changes and transactions can affect their fantasy baseball teams. Stay up to date with notable adjustments in KFFL's fantasy baseball projections to outperform competitors.
Tampa Bay seems intent on going with platoon situations for second base and right field. Rodriguez could have a chance to build on his spring sizzle in both places.
Arrival in Bronx puts Winn in competition with Brett Gardner. Even if he becomes the No. 4 outfielder, he could still see enough work to chip in for mixed roto owners once in a while. He could be a solid AL reserve.
Assured a spot in the rotation for a season's worth of innings, Masterson will have a chance to build on K explosion last season.
Looks like Joe Nathan is done for the year. Though Minny might seek outside help, Rauch has the best in-house profile for long-term save duties.
Another Joe Nathan ripple: Southpaw Mijares could see save opps in lefty-heavy situations.
He's a potential backup plan for saves with Joe Nathan's season probably over.
Enters discussion for saves sans Joe Nathan, but he's working his way back from Tommy John surgery and will probably remain in a setup role.
Back problems from 2009 are still lingering, affirming doubts he can hold up in full-time work.
Pat Burrell remains the starting DH, per Tampa Bay. Blalock could see time there and remains a backup plan at first if he makes the club, but his path to at-bats isn't clear.
Hank Blalock's arrival gives Burrell some competition for DH time.
He's getting other opinions, but a torn ulnar collateral ligament points to his season being over.
