1) Jonathan Sanchez, SP, San Francisco Giants

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

There were safer options available but no remaining starter is expected to strikeout more than one batter per inning. Don't care so much that he's a sleeper as much as he fits my team's pitching strategy.

2) Sean Rodriguez, 2B, Tampa Bay Rays

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

The potential is there. Will he have enough at-bats to justify a spot on the active roster? If so, then this is a high-reward, late-round pick.

3) Lastings Milledge, OF, Pittsburgh Pirates

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Money, meet mouth. Milledge's second half was encouraging. Counting on speed first, but 20-HR pop made him alluring. Waiting on other positions with more options.

4) Ryan Madson, RP, Philadelphia Phillies

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

As talented as any reliever left on the board, he is my handcuff in case Brad Lidge isn't ready to go because I only have two closers (Lidge and Trevor Hoffman).

5) Gavin Floyd, SP, Chicago White Sox

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Floyd's skills improved last season. He could duplicate or improve upon 2008.

Chicago White Sox SP Gavin Floyd
Will we see '08 or '09 Floyd?

6) John Danks, SP, Chicago White Sox

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

Danks and Gavin Floyd have been similar pitchers - double-digit wins, decent ratios - ever since they arrived in Chicago together in 2007. I was targeting Floyd, but he was taken the pick before mine, so I went with Danks.

7) Johnny Cueto, SP, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Cueto, 23, not a sleeper anymore? Fatigue and nagging injuries won't mute his outstanding ability - see first half last year - because he took the winter off this time.

8) J.A. Happ, SP, Philadelphia Phillies

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

It will be tough for Happ to match last season, but I still love his upside for the coming year. He'll be a middle of the rotation pitcher on a great team. Happ has a power arm that is capable of helping fantasy teams in several categories.

9) Orlando Cabrera, SS, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

With the pickings slim in the middle infield, I wanted to attack here for a starter and look for a backup later. The Cincinnati ballpark I feel will help Cabrera offensively.

10) Nick Johnson, 1B, New York Yankees

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

As always Johnson is an injury waiting to happen. He will, however, have a career year in that lineup and ballpark if he can play 140 games. His on-base skills should allow him to score 100-plus runs and he will pop 15-plus HR. A solid low-risk, high-reward gamble.

11) Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3B, Oakland Athletics

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

I chose Kouzmanoff to fill my corner infield position. He has averaged close to 20 HR and 82 RBI the past three seasons. Having escaped PETCO Park, he should be able to at least match that production.

12) Edwin Jackson, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

I rode Jackson's breakout year last season and believe he's truly turned the corner. He might have moved on to a hitters' park, but he now gets to face the opposing team's pitcher!
