In parenthesis, I am providing each players age as well. 

C-Jorge Posada, NYY (39) I know this probably looks funny to some people because Jorge appears too old. However, I think the role of DH will allow him to put up very descent numbers, or good for a fantasy catcher.

2010 line-383 abs, 248 avg, 18 hrs, 57 rbi, 3 sbs, 49 runs

2011 projection-480 abs, 272 avg, 19 hrs, 74 rbi, 2 sbs, 65 runs

1b-Kendry Morales, Angels (27) Morales is my guy this year in fantasy baseball. Before his broken leg, he was on his way to another big year. The injury seems to have him discounted more than he should be in early Mock Drafts. Morales has first round ability.

2010 line-193 abs, 290 avg,11 hrs, 39 rbi, 0 sbs, 29 runs

2011 projection-582 abs, 296 avg, 36 hrs, 115 rbi, 4 sbs, 88 runs

2b-Ian Kinsler, Rangers (28) Even when healthy, last year, Kinsler was just not the same player we have seen. I think the track record is too strong to jump off the bandwagon.

2010 line-391 abs, 286 avg, 9 hrs, 45 rbi, 15 sbs, 73 runs

2011 projection-538 abs, 282 avg, 19 hrs, 71 rbi, 24 sbs, 96 runs

SS-Derek Jeter, Yankees (36) A lot of things went wrong for Jeter last year. I think it had a lot to do with his contract situation. Now that the contract is signed, look for him to bounce back just fine.

2010 line-663 abs, 270 avg, 10 hrs, 67 rbi, 18 sbs, 111 runs

2011 projection-633 abs, 298 avg, 16 hrs, 76 rbi, 17 sbs, 109 runs

3b-Aramis Ramirez, Cubs (32) Ramirez had a strong second half but I expect many fantasy owners to jump off of his bandwagon. That should spell a nice draft day value.

2010 line-465 abs, 241 avg, 25 hrs, 83 rbi, 0 sbs, 71 runs

2011 projection-522 abs, 284 avg, 26 hrs, 95 rbi, 0 sbs, 80 runs

OF Nick Markakis, Orioles (27) Markakis looked like a rising star heading into last year, then he lost his hr stroke and the fantasy world forgot about him. I think it was just an aberration.

2010 line-629 abs, 297 avg, 12 hrs, 60 rbi, 7 sbs, 79 runs

2011 projection-618 abs, 306 avg, 21 hrs, 93 rbi, 7 sbs, 96 runs

OF Jacoby Ellsbury, Red Sox (27) Injuries killed Ellsbury’s 2010 season. He was a 3rd round pick in most drafts last year and his stock has dropped to around the 5th or 6th this year, nice discount. 

2010 line-78 abs, 192 avg, 0 runs, 5 rbi, 7 sbs, 10 runs

2011 projection-569 abs, 296 avg, 9 hrs, 58 rbi, 56 sbs, 104 runs

OF Carlos Lee, Astros (34) I just don’t think that Carlos Lee is done yet. He has been streaky throughout his career and he just never really got hot last year.

2010 line-605 abs, 246 avg, 24 hrs, 89 rbi, 3 sbs, 67 runs

2011 projection-568 abs, 273 avg, 29 hrs, 94 rbi, 2 sbs, 70 runs

SP-Tommy Hanson, Braves (24) The final line was not that bad for Hanson last year, but, as his owners know he struggled with consistency all year. Don’t expect much discount here but I expect major progression.

2010 line-202.2 innings, 10 wins, 3.33 era, 1.17 whip, 173 k’s

2011 projection-216 innings, 16 wins, 2.82 era, 1.09 whip, 191 k’s

SP-Zack Greinke, Brewers (27) Guess I didn’t go out on a limb with the starting pitchers.

2010 line-220 innings, 10 wins, 4.17 era, 1.25 whip, 181 k’s

2011 projection-216 innings, 17 wins, 3.26 era, 1.16 whip, 212 k’s

SP Dan Haren, Angels (30) Haren is a guy that fantasy owners could get at a discount. Run support and big innings hurt Haren a lot in 2010. While the run support may not get much better, I believe he will avoid more of the big innings.

2010 line-235 innings, 12 wins, 3.91 era, 1.27 whip, 216 k’s

2011 projection-221 innings, 16 wins, 3.16 era, 1.09 whip, 201 k’s

RP Francisco Rodriguez (28) His final line was actually pretty good last year. K-Rod took an image hit last year that has affected his fantasy perception. 

2010 line-57.1 innings, 4 wins, 25 saves, 2.20 era, 1.15 whip, 67 k’s

2011 projection-71 innings, 3 wins, 37 saves, 2.17 era, 1.15 whip, 83 k’s

RP Jonathan Broxton (26) Broxton was one of the top 3 closers taken in almost every fantasy draft last year and turned out to be the biggest bust at his position. However, there was a lot that went wrong in L.A. baseball last year. Make no mistake about it, Broxton still has a ton of upside.

2010 line-62.1 innings, 5 wins, 22 saves, 4.04 era, 1.48 whip, 73 k’s

2011 projection-69.2 innings, 3 wins, 33 saves, 2.64 era, 1.12 whip, 93 k’s
