Brett Anderson SP Oakland Athletics

What is it that scares many away from Brett Anderson? It must be last April's strain near the elbow that sent him to the DL twice. It can't be his nasty slider or spacious home ballpark. It's not his GB-friendly approach. Unquestionably, the southpaw carries some health risk. Few are willing to pay for the possible reward. The 23-year-old closed last season by pitching the final 2 months without an elbow-related incident. His 2010 setbacks weren't surprising; his 2008 workload swelled by 70 innings in 2009. Anderson's danger makes you cautious. His fantasy ceiling - a No. 2 or No. 3 mixed league starter - is too high to forsake going a buck or two more than this year's timid crowd is willing, however.
