2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Mariano Rivera RP New York Yankees

Mariano Rivera's cutter needed a tune-up, and he's more hittable now, as his K/9 plummet shows. It isn't THAT bad, but it's not an automatic K per frame anymore. Fly-ball jump and creaky knee warn of possible vulnerability, but the 41-year-old still keeps the ball on the ground and has skills stability to prevent a Trevor Hoffman-esque collapse. Thirty-ish saves still a safe bet. Your draft room mood will determine if paying for a 41-year-old top-end option in a shaky position is an advantage. In most cases, it won't be worth an extensive bidding war.
