7) Josh Johnson, SP, Toronto Blue Jays
Team: Michael Stein, The Hardball Times | Roster
With only three pitchers on my roster at this point, I wanted to take another before the options really started thinning out. There is obviously a lot to be concerned about with Johnson and his extensive injury history. But after a relatively healthy 2012 with a bad Marlins team, Johnson gets a fresh start north of the border and will be the #2 guy behind R.A. Dickey. Johnson will be pitching for a contract which is usually good news for fantasy owners. The risk/reward is well worth it in the 12th round.
Too many Coors
8) Jayson Werth, OF, Washington Nationals
Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster
His power production going down is a concern but he still hits for average and will steal a few bases. If he can get his power back some, Werth will be a steal in the 12th round. This pick was an easy choice for me as I looked to build my outfield.
9) Alexei Ramirez, SS, Chicago White Sox
Team: Bill Macey, Baseball HQ | Roster
Alexei doesn't offer much upside, but he's averaged approximately 15 HR and 13 SB over the last 3 years and I expect him to put up similar numbers in 2013. I'm happy to grab a reliable MI here allowing me to speculate on a breakout pick later.
10) Dexter Fowler, OF, Colorado Rockies
Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
Will he ever learn to hit on the road? His BABIP was league leading last year so the average might fall a tad, but I think there could be a 20/20 season here.
11) Chris Davis, 1B/OF, Baltimore Orioles
Team: Mark Bloom, RotoExperts/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
I knew that I wanted to get a closer in either the 12th or 13th round. There were two on the board I liked in Rafael Soriano and Sergio Romo. Since I didn't care which one I got, I took Davis first to make sure I didn't lose him. With a little more plate patience, Davis has an outside shot at 40 HR this season.
12) Josh Reddick, OF, Oakland Athletics
Team: Josh Shepardson, Baseball Prospectus | Roster
Ideally I wanted to kill two birds with one stone with my 12th round selection, and I did just that. I added more power to my squad while also filling my third outfielder roster spot.
