2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections


Chris Capuano SP New York Mets

Do you remember, like, four or five years ago, someone in your mixed league (was it you?) thinking that Chris Capuano was No. 4 starter material? Those days are gone, but the southpaw remains, two Tommy John procedures (seven years apart) and a (non-throwing) shoulder surgery later. He's a front-runner for one of two spots. He has struck out 7.40 batters per nine in his career. BB/9 kept his BB/k from teasing 3.00, save in 2006, but in his small sample size of a journey back to near relevance, he kept them in check. He was always wont to give up the long ball (1.27 HR/9 lifetime), but that'll be less of a concern at Citi Field. His stuff probably isn't 7.00 K/9 material anymore, but the deception and location remain respectable whiff material. Anything approaching his old-school rates, and he's giving you gravy for your end-game bid.
