1) Chris Snyder, C, Pittsburgh Pirates
Team: Ryan Lester, Lester's Legends | Roster
He has a little pop - 15 HRs last year and double-digit HRs in three of the past four years. He gives me depth at catcher.
2) Kyle Farnsworth, RP, Tampa Bay Rays
Team: Tim Heaney, KFFL | Roster
Maybe some saves I can sell during the season, if he distinguishes himself from this committee. Farnsworth gets a bad rap, but his skills have actually improved over the last few years. His K/9 is attractive here.
3) Jake McGee, RP, Tampa Bay Rays
Team: Doug Anderson, RotoExperts | Roster
Tim Heaney had just drafted Kyle Farnsworth, so I thought I'd draft the Rays' best reliever. Farnsworth will likely get the first shot at saves, but I'm a big believer that McGee's talent will win over before too long.
4) David DeJesus, OF, Oakland Athletics
Maybin gives upside in final round
Team: Pasko Varnica, Mastersball | Roster
Last pick; time to risk or to go with a sure thing; I went with a known entity.
5) Cameron Maybin, OF, San Diego Padres
Team: Ray Flowers, Baseball Guys | Roster
I wanted to add depth in the outfield with my last pick and also gave a thought to Roger Bernadina, Alex Gordon and David DeJesus (though DD was taken the pick before me).
6) David Freese, 3B, St. Louis Cardinals
Team: Joe Hamrahi, Baseball Prospectus | Roster
Freese was putting together a nice season before an injury shut him down for the year. Hopefully he can return to his pre-injury form and provide some insurance as a corner infielder behind Ryan Zimmerman and Daric Barton.
7) Aaron Harang, SP, San Diego Padres
Team: Eriq Gardner, Fantasy Ball Junkie | Roster
Didn't draft a starter until the 10th round. Ended up with 9 of them, including my last, Harang, who still has strikeout prowess and can temper down those HRs in his new Petco home.
8) Michael Pineda, SP, Seattle Mariners
Team: Harold Nichols, Baseball HQ | Roster
SEA GM says there is a rotation spot for him, so he's a good gamble at this point in draft. If he doesn't make rotation out of spring training, it should not be long. Has the stuff to be solid immediately.
9) Yorvit Torrealba, C, Texas Rangers
Team: Jeff Paur, RTSports | Roster
My catcher spot isn't too exciting, so I gave Torrealba a shot. He should get most of the starts in Texas, a hitter's park that could produce his best season to date.
10) Alexi Ogando, RP, Texas Rangers
Team: Nicholas Minnix, KFFL | Roster
If uber-talented Neftali Feliz makes a strong case for Texas' rotation, Mr. Almost Nearly Irrelevant may close. This stage is made for long shots. In a month and a half, would be nice to find out I've drafted another closer. Ogando has the goods.
11) Jon Garland, SP, Los Angeles Dodgers
Team: Steve Gardner, USA Today | Roster
I'd love to make my last pick a statement pick, but there wasn't really anyone out there who fit the bill. Believe it or not, I actually wanted to take Michael Pineda but Harold got him three picks earlier. I'll settle for a guaranteed double-digit win guy who I can activate on weeks he gets two starts.
12) Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3B, Oakland Athletics
Team: Collin Hager, FantasyPros911.com | Roster
Don't like the fact his OPS has declined three straight years, but his potential for 20 home runs at this point in the draft is just fine for a Mr. Irrelevant.
