Free Agent Watch: Week Six

4

Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre

If these players are on your league's waiver wire, they might be worth a look, depending on the format in which you play.

Welcome back to our weekly walk through some of the players who may want to keep an extra eye on in your leagues. Mike and I will be tackling this topic on Thursdays again and focusing on a singular hitter and pitcher in four of the more popular formats: shallow mixed, deep mixed, NL-only and AL-only. These are certainly not the only players who are worth pickups, but it gives us a nice opportunity to write about players we have close tabs on in our leagues.

12-TEAM MIXED

Sobsequy: The Best of the Triple-A Retreads

4

Adam Sobsey

What veteran players biding their time in Triple-A might help a big-league club in 2012?

Imagine that you are Tom Hanks in Cast Away, and that among the little-known details of your character (aside from an obsession with time and a badly rotting tooth) is your quiet but intense lifelong love of the Chicago White Sox.

Well, first, welcome back to civilization, Chuck Noland. Enjoy all the crab legs, and sorry you missed out on Helen Hunt—it’s a game of inches, my friend. Second, you’re probably planning to make a beeline for your favorite baseball publication. Presumably, that is Baseball Prospectus, but then again, you’ve been marooned for a couple of years and may have sustained severe damage to your judgment, which now makes decisions based on survivalist instinct rather than careful consumer reasoning. Some help, in case you haven’t picked up your annual: an admittedly informal and incomplete survey of BP writers suggests that the White Sox are destined to finish somewhere around fourth place in the American League Central, with one of my colleagues asking if he could slot them sixth. Chuck, there are only five teams in the American League Central.

Third base looks pretty grim, but Marc's rankings should help you find some relief at the hot corner.

These are the third base fantasy rankings for 2011. Shortstop will run later today at noon. Check out our previous first base and second base installments.

The former Giants infielder tries to adjust to life on a different coast at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Kevin Frandsen is no longer a Giant, but he has clearly left at least part of his heart in the San Francisco Bay area. The 27-year-old infielder is now a member of the Red Sox organization, having been dealt by his hometown team in late March after never quite living up to expectations—or, in the minds of some, never fully being given an opportunity to do so. A native of Los Gatos who left San Jose State University as its all-time leader in hits, Frandsen has a slash line of .326/.381/.449 in 1,600 minor-league plate appearances. In 174big-league games—most of which came in 2007—he has a mark of .240/.304/.341.

Under The Knife: Predictability

0

Will Carroll

Several long-anticipated moves finally get made, while the Giants' infield depth just took an even bigger hit.

Andy Pettitte (0)
Pettitte is making some progress, though the Yankees appear to be making plans in case Pettitte is not ready for Opening Day. He was able to throw off of flat ground, but the team seems more willing to push his start back, essentially starting with their #2, and letting it cycle back around; the Yankees have stated they're not anticipating a DL stint here. There's no reason to doubt they'll stick to that, not yet, though all the statements appear to leave some wiggle room. Assuming that Pettitte has no further setbacks and is able to pass a couple of tests later this week, Pettitte should be good to go, just not go on day one. I debated whether this constituted any days lost, but don't feel that it reaches that standard. One reader asked why I discuss the numbers/roles at all, since all five have to pitch and it's not a matchup of #1 versus #1, etc. My answer is that usually it doesn't matter and that in most cases, I actually speak of the "scouting" roles, where the pitcher's upside is more important than his role.

Preston Wilson and his goofy contract get DFAd, and there are a bunch of fifth-starters and utilitymen on the move.
