7) Sergio Santos, RP, Toronto Blue Jays
Team: Steve Gardner, USA TODAY/Sports Weekly | Roster
I really wanted to take another power-speed guy in Chris Young, but since I invested in Jays closer Casey Janssen as my second closer, I needed to add Santos in case Janssen's shoulder isn't 100 percent.
8) Rob Brantly, C, Miami Marlins
Team: Mark Chamberlin, Baseball Sharks | Roster
Here's hoping Brantly can serve as that bridge to Grandal; batting order is very important to me and this late in the draft all I'm looking for is a catcher that should avoid the dreaded 8 hole. All signs point to Brantly being able to do that; one early-season hot streak and he will have fulfilled his role.
9) Chris B. Young, OF, Oakland Athletics
Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster
Moment of pick: Nice depth OF with power-speed combo that could rotate with Lorenzo Cain and Drew Stubbs. About half an hour later: Thank goodness I took him because Curtis Granderson, my third-rounder, just fractured his forearm and is out until at least May.... Gotta love slow drafts.
10) Jon Jay, OF, St. Louis Cardinals
Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster
One of the reasons I was willing to wait on my fifth outfielder was some confidence in Jay, although I gambled that he'd be available this late. I'm a believer in our valuation of Jay, primarily because of his role on a good team and his proven ability to hit left-handers deftly. If it weren't for an injury last season, he'd be close to a mid-round mixed pick in 2013, I think.
11) Peter Bourjos, OF, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Team: Howard Bender, FanGraphs | Roster
Yes, the Angels outfield could be a little crowded, and yes, Mike Scioscia has a knack for killing the fantasy value of his players, but if Bourjos does get the full opportunity and plays up to his potential, he could end up being a great source of runs and cheap stolen bases.
12) Clay Buchholz, SP, Boston Red Sox
Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster
The injury paranoia is so pervasive this year that Buchholz, who was reported having a minor ailment, was still available in Round 25. Steal of the draft, IMHO.
