Why I (generally) Avoid Catchers: Given the lack of consistent at bats and injury concerns at the position, I tend to hate drafting catchers early (so they are typically inordinately low on my board). It’s not hard to get top 5-10 catchers at the end of the draft or even off the wire. I’ve never owned Joe Mauer or Victor Martinez (aside from his under-the-radar breakout year in 2004).

2013 Updated Relief Pitcher Guide

I’ve updated the 2013 Relief Pitcher Guide and made it free to everyone via the Fantasy Fix. You’ll get about 42,000 words on mostly relievers and how they might fit into saves, holds, K/9 and other types of leagues.

For cliff notes, check out here and here, which focused on some sleeper candidates  including Rhiner Cruz, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, Esmil Rogers, Junichi Tazawa, Jake McGee, Tommy Hunter, Cory Burns, A.J. Ramos, Fernando Salas, Josh Edgin, Nick Vincent, Brad Brach, Zach Stewart, Chris Leroux, Raul Valdes, and Adam Ottavino.

Mark Reynolds (#118 Hitter, #27 1B, #15 3B) was covered in the first basemen preview here.

In the minors, Mike Moustakas (#137 Hitter, #16 3B) was a power dynamo, slugging 36 HRs between AA and AAA in 2010. He seemed to get his stroke back at the beginning of 2012, socking 15 HRs in the first half, but finished with just 20 total bombs.

Even with Dan Uggla’s (#52 Hitter, #6 2B) disastrous 2012, he has the 17th most HRs since 2010 – that’s among all hitters, not just second basemen. Among second basemen, he has the second most HRs, is tied for the fourth most runs, and has the second most RBIs since 2010.

As noted elsewhere in this series, my rankings value consistent players who have put up numbers for the past three seasons. As such, it should be no surprise that I am, once again, one of the highest on Paul Konerko (#27 Hitter, #5 1B). Since 2010, Konerko is tied for the eighth most HRs, has the 14th most RBIs and owns the 14th best batting average among all qualified hitters. Of course, he is living off a pretty impressive 2010 (39 HRs) and has seen his HR total decline from that high to 31 to 26 last season. Not surprisingly his HR/FB rate has been on a downward trend as well, while his ground balls have been increasing.

Beware the Hype Machine: Paul Goldschmidt for @TheFantasyFix

Beware the Hype Machine: Paul Goldschmidt for the Fantasy Fix. At the tender age of 24, Paul Goldschmidt batted .286/.359/.490 with 20 HRs and 18 SBs (against just three caught stealings). He scored and knocked in 82 runs in just 145 games. This followed up a somewhat impressive debut in 2011, during which he socked eight dingers in just 48 games.
