Positions
Notes
Kevin Youkilis
BOS
1B, 3B
With his power blooming, Youk stands as a No.1 option at either CI spot
Alexei Ramirez
CHW
2B, SS, OF
Ramirez's versatitiliy at shallow positions drives up his value by a full round or two
Garrett Atkins
COL
1B, 3B
He has lost some pop of late, but he's still serviceable in the early middle rounds
Aubrey Huff
BAL
1B, 3B
Best year since '03 should inflate his value, but he's a good 3B option if he's eligible
Chris Davis
TEX
1B, 3B
Midrange option at best at either corner - a power option with a low contact rate
Jorge Cantu
FLA
1B, 3B
Florida's corner positions are still unsettled, with youngsters possibly pushing Cantu
Hank Blalock
TEX
1B, 3B
The brittle but promising slugger is a great late pick as a CI or a Plan B at 3B
Carlos Guillen
DET
1B, 3B
Highly skilled hitter coming off down year; should add OF to his resume in '09
Conor Jackson
ARI
1B, OF
Has at least batted .284 and belted 12 dingers in last 3 years; reliable late-round value
Casey Blake
LAD
1B, 3B
A steady (read: little upside) fantasy CI, Blake should be at center of LA lineup
Mike Aviles
KC
2B, 3B, SS
A late-round pick in deep mixed by virtue of his triple play of middle-infield stock
Mark DeRosa
CLE
2B, 3B, OF
Promising Tribe offense should bounce back, with DeRosa there to take advantage
Nick Swisher
NYY
1B, OF
His PT and '09 team are now uncertain, but he's a good bench pick in deep drafts
Ty Wigginton
FA
3B, LF
Wait for him to find a new home before considering him as a weak CI in deep mixed
Asdrubal Cabrera
CLE
2B, SS
Hit .416 in 77 ABs in September; Cabrera is an upside MI in deep mixed if he runs
Jed Lowrie
BOS
3B, SS
To start, the youngster might need the Sox to trade either SS Julio Lugo or 3B Mike Lowell
Clint Barmes
COL
2B, 3B, SS
After winning the battle last year, Barmes to be starting 2B heading into the spring
Brandon Inge
DET
C, 3B
The Mendoza Line dweller has some power but is at best a low-end No. 2 C in deep setups
