In Texas, he'll get AB, as well
1) A.J. Pierzynski, C, Texas Rangers
Team: Josh Shepardson, Baseball Prospectus | Roster
Pierzynski won't repeat last year's out-of-nowhere career year, but he's a full-time catcher in a high scoring lineup with a friendly home ballpark. He's an excellent second catcher.
2) Starling Marte, OF, Pittsburgh Pirates
Team: Mark Bloom, RotoExperts/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
Was very surprised to see Marte still on the board. Some may look at the depressed BA and stay away; I look at a potential 15-30 player coming into his own.
3) Dustin Ackley, 2B, Seattle Mariners
Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
I don't know how he scored more than 80 runs with an OBP under .300 last year. Some slight improvement across the board could lead to 10th round production.
4) Lance Berkman, 1B, Texas Rangers
Team: Bill Macey, Baseball HQ | Roster
Berkman probably won't stay healthy the entire season, but I don't need him to. As long as he can stay in the lineup until Corey Hart returns, I can use the pair to get premium production at my CI roster spot.
5) Adam Eaton, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks
Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster
Eaton will start from day one and has big steals potential. He is no sure thing as a rookie, but I like his potential to help in several categories. He was a guy I was targeting for late in the draft and ended up getting a chance to nab him.
6) Tim Hudson, SP, Atlanta Braves
Team: Michael Stein, The Hardball Times | Roster
After 18 rounds, I only had three starting pitchers in David Price, Roy Halladay and Josh Johnson. In case Halladay and Johnson have lingering injury issues, I became worried about wins. Hudson has always been a fantasy favorite of mine because all he does is win. He doesn't strike many batters out anymore, but he is good for 15 wins and a mid-3.00 ERA.
