Fantasy Beat: Mid-Season Retooling: Right Field

0

Marc Normandin

If you're wondering about your own trading deadlines, there are stars new and old in right to be careful about.

This week we'll continue with our look at each position by delving into the seasons of a few right fielders who have surprised people, some positively, and some negatively. With the trade deadline approaching in real baseball, the fantasy baseball deadlines also loom for many leagues, so knowing who to deal, keep, pick up, or drop is key for that final two-month push.

,p> It's a good thing Alex Rios has stolen a career-high 25 bases this season, because all of the power he'd added in the last two years has disappeared. Before 2006, Rios was more of a ground-ball hitter than a fly-ball guy, which held him back in the power department. Starting with 2006 though, he adjusted his swing and put more loft into it, generating far more fly balls and boosting his power production. His fly-ball rate is down to 34 percent this year after a career-high 44.1 percent last season, and more importantly his HR/FB rate has been cut in half, dropping from 10.0 to 4.9 percent. After G/F ratios of 0.9 and 0.8 the past two seasons, Rios is at 1.3 this year, above the average (1.1). This has put a serious dent in Rios' power, as his ISO has dropped to an unimpressive .126.

Every Given Sunday: A New Angel in the Outfield

0

John Perrotto

The AL West's top contender didn't sit still this winter, while the D'backs, Mets, and Mariners are all raising the stakes.

Simply put, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim just don't have the appeal of the American League's other top teams. The Boston Red Sox are the defending World Series champions. The Cleveland Indians are the scrappy team that pushed the champs to the brink last season before losing in seven games in the American League Championship Series. The Yankees have a modern-day murderer's row in their lineup, while the Tigers have one to match after trading for Miguel Cabrera in the offseason.

The Reds and A's make an intriguing swap, the Astros call up a highly-touted rookie to battle Tal's Hill, and the Cubs stick a Cherry on top of their bullpen in this week's Transaction Analysis.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Corner Outfield Prospects

0

Nate Silver

Last time out, Nate zeroed in on center fielders. Today, he moves to the corners.

1. Delmon Young, Devil Rays (21) 135.2 2. Billy Butler, Royals (21) 125.9 3. Jay Bruce, Reds (20) 118.1 Delmon Young is the best corner outfield prospect in baseball. There isn't much debate about that. The question is where he fits into the overall picture. Kevin Goldstein and Baseball America each have him rated at #3, whereas PECOTA thinks he's more in the range of #15.

Nate Silver

It may seem that PECOTA has gone soft when it comes to the plethora of excellent center field prospects, but there's good reason to be excited.

Excellent Prospects
