1) Jason Frasor, RP, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

I have doubts whether Kevin Gregg's propensity for fly balls will land him the closer role in Toronto. We'll see in a month whether I've landed a closer in the 22nd round or just a contributing middle reliever.

2) David DeJesus, OF, Kansas City Royals

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

In one word: steady. My last two picks had a risk factor in them. It was time to settle down and pick someone who will meet my projected expectations.

3) Brian Matusz, SP, Baltimore Orioles

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Polished youngster could pay dividends quickly. Slew of pitchers I could've grabbed, but Matusz is the biggest boom-or-bust selection. Diverse arsenal will help him in AL.

4) Chris B. Young, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

Once upon a time he went 30-25. Hell, it was just the other day really (2007). If he comes through in '09, he could be a cheap 20-20 option.

Atlanta Braves SP Derek Lowe
Can D-Lowe rebound in '10?

5) Seth Smith, OF, Colorado Rockies

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Fourth OF in Colorado went .293-15-55 last season in only 335 AB. Excellent upside if he receives the playing time and a fine late-round speculation.

6) Buster Posey, C, San Francisco Giants

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

The catching pool is down to the dregs, so I decided to go for upside. Posey will probably start the season in the minors but once he's ready, he can be a solid contributor.

7) J.J. Hardy, SS, Minnesota Twins

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

A small leap of faith: Hold out for Hardy, who has 25-homer power but stunk last year. A better, sounder lineup and some familiar friends should help him rebound a bit.

8) Wade Davis, SP, Tampa Bay Rays

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Davis is another power arm for my staff. I love his potential for the coming season, pitching in the middle of the rotation for an above-average team.

9) Drew Stubbs, OF, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

How can I turn down a 50-steal threat at this point in the draft? Stubbs pushed out Willy Taveras and has good upside as an extra outfielder.

10) Ryan Theriot, SS, Chicago Cubs

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

No real upside here, but he deserves to be picked before some of the middle infielders already off the board.

11) Derek Lowe, SP, Atlanta Braves

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

Lowe has had at least 12 wins every year dating back to 2002. His ERA and WHIP went to hell last year, but he's a good candidate for a rebound.

12) Alex Avila, C, Detroit Tigers

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

With Gerald Laird's bat weighing down the lineup, it's only a matter of time before Avila becomes the starter and begins injecting some offense from the catcher position.
