7) Wilson Ramos, C, Washington Nationals
Team: Michael Stein, The Hardball Times | Roster
Still needing another catcher at this point, I went with Ramos, who will likely be the starter in Washington assuming he remains healthy. Ramos is capable of being a respectable hitter, but injuries have derailed his career thus far. I knew what I was in store for when I punted the catching position, so the combination of A.J. Ellis and Ramos won't make anyone else shake in their boots.
8) Wei-Yin Chen, SP, Baltimore Orioles
Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster
Chen had an awful second half, but I can't ignore what he did in the first half of his first full season in the majors. I look for him to take a step forward this season and improve on his numbers slightly from last season, making him a good spot starter for my team.
9) Luke Gregerson, RP, San Diego Padres
Team: Bill Macey, Baseball HQ | Roster
I selected Gregerson primarily to handcuff Huston Street, who is highly likely to get hurt at some point during the year. When he does, Gregerson is the most likely candidate to pick up the saves in his absence. Thanks to his very low ERA and WHIP, I can also use him in a pinch if I am trying to avoid a bad matchup for one of my SP.
10) Domonic Brown, OF, Philadelphia Phillies
Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
I really didn't need another outfielder, but with Delmon Young nursing an ankle maybe, just maybe, Brown flashes that 20-20 talent.
11) Edinson Volquez, SP, San Diego Padres
Team: Mark Bloom, RotoExperts/SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio | Roster
Volquez is a streaky pitcher who pitches in PETCO Park. He also strikes out a ton of guys. Safe pick this late in the draft.
12) Ryan Ludwick, OF, Cincinnati Reds
Team: Josh Shepardson, Baseball Prospectus | Roster
I anticipate on the Rays opening the season with Myers in the minors to delay starting his service time clock. With that in mind, I needed an outfielder as a stop gap, and Ludwick fills that need.
