Fantasy Baseball Prospect Report – George Springer

The Houston Astros purchased the contract of their top prospect, George Springer, from their Triple-A affiliate today with a promotion to the big club and a spot in the starting lineup. The 24-year-old right fielder destroyed Minor league pitching last season to the tune of 37 big flies and 108 runs batted in combined between Double and Triple-A. He also hit .303 and swiped 45 bags in what was a very impressive campaign and one that solidified him as one of the game’s next young stars.

Fantasy Baseball Slow Starts – Don’t Panic

Fantasy Baseball Slow Starts – Don’t Panic

Here we aren’t even a month into the 2014 season and you have already been contemplating players to get rid of via trade or by dropping for another guy who came out the gate blazing. Here are some names that have come out the box a little slow this season, but that you want to hold too. After all, you don’t want the guy you let go of in April knocking you out of the playoffs in August.

Edwin Encarnacion, Tor 1B/3B

Edwin might be of to a slower start than usual, but that is no cause for concern. We’re talking about a guy who has hit over 35 long balls and batted in over 100 of his compadres the last couple seasons in Toronto’s powerful line up. Those aren’t numbers you easily quit on early in a long season. He has looked better as of late and we should witness his first home run of the campaign any day now. Fantasy owners can expect here to be a lot more where that came from.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Top Prospects – Hitters

2014 Fantasy Baseball Top Prospects – Hitters

Baseball is in full swing like some of these top hitting prospects mentioned below. A few of these players are already in the Major Leagues while others are waiting for their call to the Show. In either case, there is a lot of fantasy value here for you owners to take note of.

For those players still in the Minor Leagues, it is hard to predict when they will make their debuts because it will all depend on the club’s situation. An injury could take place and the call gets made; or lack of production from an incumbent ahead on the depth chart, or a team could be way out of the playoff picture and decide that the young prospects are going to get a chance to shine.

Billy Hamilton, Cin OF

This speedster is the Reds’ leadoff man to start the 2014 season and the 23-year-old got off to a slow start. Hamilton went 0-for-16 out the chute, but has swung the bat better as of late and stole his first two bags on Wednesday.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers – Starting Pitchers

With lots of fantasy drafts taking place this weekend and for those owners who may have drafted already, but want to add a player or two to their team, here are some undervalued starting pitchers to look over. There is a ton of talent on this list, so make sure to pay attention to all the guys listed below because you never know where the next, big talent will come to form.

Masahiro Tanaka, NYY

Coming off of a 24-0 season in Japan, Tanaka will look to make an immediate impact in the states as the newest member of the Yankees’ pitching staff. The 25-year-old right hander signed a seven-year, $155 million contract during the offseason, adding great pressure to his highly anticipated first season in the Bronx. In seven seasons in Japan, Tanaka posted a 99-35 record with a 2.30 earned run average, but during his past two seasons he managed to reduce his ERA to an epic 1.27.

We move on to the most undervalued outfielders heading into your fantasy baseball draft. These sleepers are a good mix of veterans and young players who are poised to have a good 2014.

Josh Hamilton, LAA

It wasn’t too long ago that Hamilton was regarded as one of the game’s top sluggers while playing for the Rangers. Last season was his first with the Halos and it was his worst since 2009. The 32-year-old veteran posted career-lows in batting average (.250) and on-base percentage (.307) in 2013.

2013-2014 Fantasy Basketball Recap

Fantasy basketball gurus Matt Bohannan and Brandon Osborne analyze NBA fantasy basketball topics and recap what happened this past season.

Best values, and biggest come-ups

BrandonRobin Lopez, C Por: Lopez, AKA “Sideshow Bob” changed location and seemingly changed his game virtually overnight. His fantasy numbers don’t really stand out, but he’s extremely efficient and rarely gets injured (as opposed to his more hyped brother, Brook), which are traits I look for in a big man.
