2012 MLB Fantasy sleepers

Posted: 02/08/2012 by levcohen in Baseball

Today I will start my preview of the 2012 baseball season. (fantasy and more). Here are the fantasy sleepers (for where they will be drafted)- which are the guys who i think will vastly outdo their draft spot:

Ike Davis, 1B- Ike is a young first baseman who has shown some promise. However, he was injured for most of last year, so he will be a great sleeper this year. Draft him around the top 150.

Dee Gordon, SS- Gordon is basically an Elvis Andrus, but he might end up better. He will be drafted wayy below Andrus, and is a cheap investment in steals and runs scored. Draft him around the top 110

Mike Moustakas, 3B- A young, super talented power hitter at a weak position. What’s not to like about that? He will be underrated because he had a bad rookie year, and because he is inexperienced. He also plays on the Royals… draft him around the top 150

Hiroki Kuroda, SP- He is old, he doesn’t get high strikeout numbers… however, he is a great ERA and WHIP pitcher. Away from Dodger Stadium, a hitters park, he has a career sub 3.00 ERA. Guess what? He isn’t in LA this year.. Draft him in the top 120.

Yu Darvish, SP- Darvish is from Japan. Japanese pitchers have historically preformed badly. He will snap this trend, while racking up a lot of strikeouts and wins in Texas. While a lot of people want to wait until outside the top 100 to draft him, I would draft him in the top 70.

Shin-Soo Choo, OF- He had a horrible year last year, but obviously has 30-30 talent. Fantasy owners love this kind of buy low. Draft him in the top 50 and you will be happy

Adam Dunn, DH- The only DH on this list is someone who batted below the Mendoza line last year. He had an awful year, but look for him to bounce back and hit 30 HR with high RBI again. Draft him in the top 150, and you will get a great steal.


Tomorrow is my early top 50
