1) Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C, Texas Rangers

Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster

Salty is still a starting catcher with solid tools. Won't have a lot of pressure on him with a strong lineup surrounding him. He has 15-20 homer potential in a hitter-friendly park in Arlington.

2) Jesus Flores, C, Washington Nationals

Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster

At this point I'm looking for catcher depth. Hoping he can hold off Ivan Rodriguez. Flores' BA and OPS have improved each year. All he needs is AB.

3) Scott Podsednik, OF, Kansas City Royals

Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster

I absolutely loathe drafting players like Pods. He is an almost worthless player in real baseball (contrary to what the Royals think). He could, however, be a cheap source of 30-plus SB.

4) Brandon Morrow, SP, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster

Morrow spent time being pushed and pulled all over the Seattle Mariners rotation and bullpen. Toronto is going to give him a full-time starter role and that should help him stabilize.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow
Will a new start in TO help Morrow?

5) Chris Tillman, SP, Baltimore Orioles

Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster

Tillman didn't have a great start to his career last season, but he certainly has the talent to be a top-flight pitcher in this league. I figured he was a worth a shot at this point of the draft.

6) Jason Hammel, SP, Colorado Rockies

Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster

Former top Tampa Bay Rays prospect throughout 2009: buys into Rox's grounder-inducing philosophy, refines repertoire to fit it, solves Coors Field with it, improves K/9.

7) Bronson Arroyo, SP, Cincinnati Reds

Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster

Consistent double-digit winner is a nice guy to have on your bench as a backup pitcher.

8) Ryan Raburn, OF, Detroit Tigers

Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster

Hit 16 HR in only 261 AB last season, giving him 25-HR potential if he gets the playing time. Reportedly working out at 3B and 2B in spring training to see if he can fulfill a super-sub role.

9) Casey Blake, 3B, Los Angeles Dodgers

Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster

He has no upside, but I had him as the 15th-best third basemen so no harm in taking him here.

10) John Buck, C, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster

Yawn. Targeted playing time. His average will hurt, but he'll add double-digit homers to my roster. My Carlos Santana placeholder.

11) Edwin Encarnacion, 3B, Toronto Blue Jays

Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster

Experts think that this could be his bounceback year.

12) Erik Bedard, SP, Seattle Mariners

Team: Eriq Gardner, The Hardball Times | Roster

He'll be stashed on DL. Maybe a great second-half producer. No point taking someone else. I'll be able to select another player after I move him to the DL.

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
