Garion Thorne continues his MLB Positional Preview with his 2016 3B Rankings where the apparent decline of Adrian Beltre isn’t as obvious as it seems. Thorne also looks into the second half struggles of new White Sox Todd Frazier, finds a powerful player comparison for Miguel Sano, and breaks down the hidden value of Yangervis Solarte.
Garion Thorne updates his 2015 1B Rankings as June comes to a close. How high has Todd Frazier’s 23 home run season vaulted him? Are Edwin Encarnacion and David Ortiz going to turn things around? And, is Justin Turner for real?
The difficult part of every hitter’s breakout season is the follow up season. Was that breakout year a fluke? Can they repeat on their success? Here are five players whom I expect to experience a regression in fantasy value next season
This week I’m going to look at some characteristics of players that are being overvalued in 2015. Now, we’ve come a long way in this respect as well. Even fantasy baseball beginners won’t be taking Bartolo Colon or Alfredo Simon as number 2 starters because they won 15 games last year. We know Henderson Alvarez is no ace because his 2.65 ERA is not supported by his low strikeouts and high WHIP.
