KFFL delivers the fantasy baseball spin on each Major League Baseball Hot Stove deal that matters in your fantasy baseball league. Check back for frequent updates to the Fantasy Baseball Hot Stove!
Victor Martinez, Detroit Tigers (signed)
V-Mart returns to AL Central
Knee jerk: Elite hitter plus primary DH plus continued catcher eligibility equals reach-worthy. Consider the offense around him, though. In team-centric RBIs and runs scored, he might drop a little now that he isn't with the Boston Red Sox. Even with that potential, V-Mart won't come at a Kmart price. Are you willing to pony up?
Yorvit Torrealba, Texas Rangers (signed)
Bengie Molina is considering retirement. Torrealba is capable of starting. He typically hits better at home, wherever that may be. In his new hitter-friendly digs, maybe he hits double-digit homers. Though his batted-ball inflation since '08 has skewed his value, his potential to see frequent work at Rangers Ballpark should perk up AL-only ears.
