1) Chris Perez, RP, Cleveland Indians

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

Yes, I dig middle relievers, especially those who can chip in their fair share of strikeouts, bring a healthy WHIP and have opportunity for saves growth.

2) Orlando Hudson, 2B, Minnesota Twins

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

The reserve portion of the draft is meant for players with high upside. After securing Sean Rodriguez two rounds earlier, this is my insurance pick.

3) Jhonny Peralta, 3B/SS, Cleveland Indians

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Peralta's positional eligibility stood out over other rebound/depth candidates. Opens up my drafting for the final few rounds. I expect him to sniff 20 HR again while driving in 80 runs.

4) Delmon Young, OF, Minnesota Twins

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

My third straight young OF (Chris B. Young, Elijah Dukes). All three have a ton of potential, and each could be a terrific fifth outfield option this year.

Minnesota Twins OF Delmon Young
Young finally ready to break out?

5) Pedro Alvarez, 3B, Pittsburgh Pirates

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Excellent power prospect who is blocked in PIT only by Andy LaRoche. Expected to arrive in second half of season but could be up sooner if LaRoche struggles.

6) Troy Glaus, 1B, Atlanta Braves

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

My team may be a little short on power, but Glaus does have seven 25-plus homer seasons to his credit. He'll be hitting cleanup behind Chipper Jones (and possibly in front of Jason Heyward).

7) Homer Bailey, SP, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Finally displayed mid-90s heat, implemented an effective splitter and was hot in final nine starts. Don't forget: He's talented. And now, dedicated. Scouts peg him as breakout player.

8) Derek Holland, SP, Texas Rangers

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Holland needs to cut down his flyball rate in that ballpark, but he certainly has the "stuff" to be a top of the rotation type pitcher.

9) Randy Wells, SP, Chicago Cubs

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

His rookie season makes this one worth the gamble. Even a slight adjustment in his strand rate should keep his ERA under 4.00, and he has a shot at 15 wins

10) Madison Bumgarner, SP, San Francisco Giants

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

I'm not sure the upside is as high as some think, but he's in a good situation to succeed. The ballpark is going to help, and the Giants offense is approaching respectability.

11) Skip Schumaker, 2B/OF, St. Louis Cardinals

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

Skip gives me the flexibility to play him at 2B, MI and OF. He's hit .302 with 87 runs and .303 with 85 runs in each of the past two years. Not much for SB or HR, but a good, solid bench player.

12) Scott Rolen, 3B, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

An oldie but goodie, Rolen helped keep me in contention last year while Alex Rodriguez was out for two months. Rolen will competently fill a bench role again.

Rnd: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28
