7) Mike Moustakas, 3B, Kansas City Royals

Team: Michael Stein, The Hardball Times | Roster

I was targeting Moustakas hoping he would last awhile, and I didn't think he would make it back to me by my next pick. His first full season in the majors in 2012 had mixed results, but there is no denying his power. He is still young and has a lot to learn, especially against lefties. But even if the batting average doesn't top .260 I am still happy signing up for 20-25 home runs and 75-80 RBI.

8) Joel Hanrahan, RP, Boston Red Sox

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Not sure how many decent closers will be left by the time I pick again, so I took my second at this point. Hanrahan was a little up and down last season but still posted solid numbers. He heads to a team that should give him plenty of save chances and a new league that hasn't seen him much. These are all pluses in my eyes.

9) Michael Cuddyer, 1B/OF, Colorado Rockies

Team: Bill Macey, Baseball HQ | Roster

I grabbed Cuddyer in this round for two reasons: most importantly, any player on the Rockies is always a threat to post a monster season. But I also wanted a dual-eligible player like Cuddyer to give me more roster flexibility in-season to help maneuver around inevitable injuries.

10) Jon Lester, SP, Boston Red Sox

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster

I believe Lester will rebound in 2013. Here's the reasons why.

11) Tom Wilhelmsen, RP, Seattle Mariners

Team: Mark Bloom, RotoExperts/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster

After picking Rafael Soriano, I really wanted to follow up with another closer. Wilhelmsen was available and I took him mainly due to his high K rate.

12) Grant Balfour, RP, Oakland Athletics

Team: Josh Shepardson, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

I was hoping to nab Wilhelmsen, but he was snapped up right in front of me. Balfour was the next closer in my rankings. He has been excellent four of the last five years and is a reliable second closer for my team.
