2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Joe Blanton added dominance to his innings-eating approach, but his approach dictates his K/9 won't remain high. He saw some BABIP help midseason but continued to display excellent command. Spikes in flyball and HR/FB are worrisome, but he has generally excelled at keeping the ball down. Improvement made in his stretch delivery could sustain strand rate growths. The 29-year-old vet is a decent late-round rotation capper in deep mixed, but don't expect much, if any, upside.
