Jon Rauch, RP, Minnesota Twins

2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Jon Rauch rebounded by increasing his groundball rate; his new cutter helped. Flyball issues lurk. Closer Joe Nathan will miss 2010 season; Minny is trying a committee approach for saves, barring a trade. Rauch has the most experience among non-Nathan Twins relievers. While Rauch won't be saving games every day at first, he's the best bet to emerge from this batch as the top option. He's a low-end No. 3 mixed closer but could be a value pick in AL setups. The word "committee" might scare off your competitors.
