2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Jeff Francis' recent shoulder woes should keep his cost at virtually nothing. Which is one reason that he's worth a shot. Another: The southpaw morphed into a saber-friendly target in the past 4 years with his continued improvement in BB/9. Last year, he sported a 1.98 BB/9 while he was upright. A BB/9 in the mid-2.00s is a real likelihood. Francis won't miss Coors Field; Kauffman Stadium is much kinder. The 30-year-old is at full strength and keeps his club in ballgames. Good health may not last beyond ST, but it may last for the balance of the year. KC doesn't have the O for great run support, but help isn't far off. Francis isn't sexy, but he has a lot of room to turn a profit.
