Paul Singman

One of the biggest September prospect call-ups, Adam Eaton, leads off this week's VP.

Arriving
This week’s call-up of note is Adam Eaton (Yahoo! 0%, ESPN 0%, CBS 7%), a young Arizona farmhand tearing up Triple-A. In a noted hitter’s haven in Reno, Eaton batted an impressive .381/.456/.539 with seven home runs and 38 steals over 120 games. John Sickels has an informative write-up of Eaton over at Minor League Ball for those interested in details. The short version is that Eaton has been productive throughout the minors—particularly in batting average and stolen bases—but is undersized at 5-foot-8, leading some to doubt whether he can translate those numbers to the majors. So far, nothing has been lost in the translation, with two two-hit games to start off his major league career.

Parmelee, Mayberry, McLouth, and Ruf join VP this week.

Arrivals
Chris Parmelee (Yahoo! 0%, ESPN 0%, CBS 3%) is rising from Triple-A for the fourth time this season and hoping he can finally stick in the Twins’ lineup. With Denard Span hitting the 15-day DL yesterday, Parmelee has a small window to produce and prove himself for next season. The 24-year-old Parmelee destroyed Triple-A this year to the tune of .338/.457/.645 but has been tamed so far in the majors, batting just .207/.281/.319 in 128 trips to the plate. As a non-contending team, the Twins would be wise to play Parmelee every day and get a good look at him for next year. He should have that chance as long as Span is out, making him a nice two-week rental in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues.

Injuries clear playing time (and VP spots) for Wise, Blackmon, and Podsednik.

Arrivals
The White Sox have lost Alejandro De Aza to injury and are turning to recent acquisition DeWayne Wise (Yahoo! 3%, ESPN 4%, CBS 3%) to fill the void in center. Between the Yankees and White Sox, Wise has had a surprisingly productive year, batting .300 with six home runs and nine steals in just 100 at-bats. No one expects him to maintain that pace, but he can contribute a little bit everywhere, making him a player to consider adding in all leagues.

Injuries to Carp and Schierholtz uncrowd the VP room and make way for Gregor Blanco.

Departures
Mike Carp (Yahoo! 6%, ESPN 9%, CBS 8%) lasted all of 17 games in between DL stints, this time succumbing to a groin strain. The 26-year-old first baseman wasn’t hitting much anyway, so it’s time to move on.

David Murphy gets full-time at-bats and Andy Dirks returns from the DL in this week's VP.

Departures
Sam Fuld (Yahoo! 0%, ESPN 0%, CBS 1%) barely received any playing time this week, putting the fan-favorite into an at-bat-less reality he’ll have to accept while the rest of the Rays outfield enjoys good health. If injury strikes, Fuld should be a useful AL-only player, but until then, it’s safe to forget him.

The newly-recalled Mike Carp and the newly-liberated Nate Schierholtz join VP this week.

Departures
Carlos Gomez (Yahoo! 28%, ESPN 49%, CBS 22%), along with, interestingly enough, Drew Stubbs, set the pace for the other VP hitters to follow this week. Gomez kept cranking out the production with six runs, a homer, and three steals—all while playing center every day for the Brew Crew. That uptick in playing time is key to his value and makes him rosterable in all leagues, which fantasy baseballers have started to notice.

Jordany Valdespin and Carlos Gomez join the VP ranks this week.

With the trade deadline a mere four days away, it certainly is an exciting time in the baseball season.  Every year there are a few surprise moves that no one sees coming (Ichiro, anyone?), so it can pay off to make a few longshot bets on players who might benefit from one of those surprises. Maybe in one league you want to add Rex Brothers or Matt Belisle for a few days in case Rafael Betancourt gets shipped out of Colorado. Or maybe Peter Bourjos in case he gets flipped to a place where he’ll receive regular at-bats. If you’ve got the roster space, these are the type of low-risk moves that can payoff big and make you look like a genius.

Outfield VP returns with a new author, impressive Tout Wars rookie Paul Singman.

Readers, I have the pleasure of introducing you today to yet another new member of the Baseball Prospectus Fantasy team.  Former Outfield VP author Rob McQuown will now be devoting his efforts to keeping things running smoothly on the tech side of the site, so we welcome Paul Singman to replace him. Paul used to write with me at The Hardball Times and, in fact, was the first writer I ever recruited at THT. He holds an impressive mixed league track record over the past few seasons, routinely finishing near the top of the Yahoo! Friends & Family league and currently running third in Tout Wars. Welcome aboard, Paul! —Derek Carty, Fantasy Manager
