1) Luis Valbuena, 2B/SS, Cleveland Indians

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

Showed some nice pop from a middle infield position. With a little plate discipline, good things are in store for the 24-year-old Valbuena!

2) Travis Snider, OF, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

I figured I'd inject some youth in my lineup with Snider, who struggled in his first taste with the Jays but has a ton of power potential.

3) Marc Rzepczynski, SP, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

He deserved to be picked earlier, but the fear of typing out his name scared the experts off. Slot him in when the matchups are good and enjoy a little boost.

4) Luke Scott, 1B/OF, Baltimore Orioles

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

I'm always surprised that he gets so little visibility. Scott is another .270/25/85 guy and, as you can tell, I fully believe in stacking up on the Baltimore offense this season.

Washington Nationals OF Elijah Dukes
Kuroda: valuable rotation filler

5) Scott Sizemore, 2B, Detroit Tigers

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Figured I would take a chance on a bench player. Sizemore has Rookie of the Year potential, which could net him some playing time for me if all goes well.

6) Magglio Ordonez, OF, Detroit Tigers

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Thought Maggs was done after a rough year. He had a fantastic offseason. This late, I'll trust an old baseball man like Jim Leyland who says he hears "the sound" in Maggs' bat again.

7) Jeff Niemann, SP, Tampa Bay Rays

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

Niemann won 13 games a year ago and is backed by a solid defense. His strikeout numbers weren't exceptional but I'm encouraged by his improvement over the second half of last season.

8) Desmond Jennings, OF, Tampa Bay Rays

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Top prospect with blazing speed, good power, excellent batting eye. He may not arrive until late season, but Tampa OF is a bit unsettled behind Carl Crawford. Jennings is worth a speculative bid at this point.

9) Elijah Dukes, OF, Washington Nationals

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

Seems refocused knowing his career might be on the line. It's a huge risk counting on him, but he still has 20-20 potential making him worth the risk this late.

10) Hiroki Kuroda, SP, Los Angeles Dodgers

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Insurance for Brian Matusz selection. K's elude Kuroda, but his control and GB percentages excel. Even at age 35, a safe capper for a deep rotation.

11) Randy Wolf, SP, Milwaukee Brewers

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

I rate Wolf around the 40th to 45th starting pitcher. Over 70 SPs went in the draft, and he was still available. I could not pass on him.

12) Conor Jackson, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

Let's call 2009 a scratch. Jackson is a very professional hitter and I'm more than willing to take the Valley Fever discount. Sleeper!
