Fantasy Fool's Gold: National League Starting Pitchers


Craig Goldstein

These four pitchers have numbers on their side, but there are reasons to doubt their future fantasy value.

With the position players over and done with, it’s time to start taking stock of the pitchers. I’m going to kick us off with some National League starters that would deceive the box-score scout and might be receiving a bit too much hype. As always, this doesn’t disqualify them from prospect status so much as it is a reality check on the type of prospects they truly are. While you might think that starting pitching would provide a deep reservoir of names to pull from on a project like this, it turns out that like the author, it was actually shallow and disappointing. Rather than forcefeed you a fifth name, below are four prospects who we deemed less than the sum of their stats.

Once again, the BP Prospect Team has gone above and beyond in responding to inquiries on players, and the information they provide is invaluable. It allows us to give a lot of depth and history to the players mentioned, and that’s important in an industry that focuses so much on the present.

Sporer Report: Six September Stashes


Paul Sporer

Paul breaks down six pitchers who have succeeded in the upper minors and might provide fantasy value down the stretch.

For the third straight week now the Sporer Report has an eye on September. This time around, I’ve got six potential National League September call-ups, all pitchers, who could bring solid value down the stretch. This is some deep speculation, so keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to take the plunge. The recent news in Queens takes some punch out of a couple of these, but you’ll have to trust that they made my list last week when I compiled both the AL and NL lists.

Those of you in 10- and 12-team mixers likely don’t need to pounce just yet and in fact shouldn’t pounce just yet unless you’ve got remarkably deep rosters. Instead, use this as a cheatsheet of who to keep tabs on as we now sit just four days from September 1. Those of you in deeper leagues might find a few of these guys already rostered, but most should be available, and if you have the roster space, then you should consider getting the jump on your league mates. These are ranked in order of potential impact which accounts for the likelihood that they even get the call.

BP's in-house guru takes his shot at projecting how team's top picks go next week.

1. Washington Nationals: This is now a no-brainer. Over the course of the spring, we've slowly gone from "Will they take Harper?" to "Will they sign Haper?" to "How much will they pay Harper?" He's going No. 1, and you could even end up seeing a creative deal that, on paper, gets him more than Stephen Strasburg received.

Future Shock: First Round Update


Kevin Goldstein

Kevin has all the information on the first-rounders who signed, and those who haven't yet.

Sunday's piece on the draft generated a whirlwind of email responses, many of them looking for specific information about a specific pick. Here's a broader look at where the first-round selections are at, both signed and unsigned. Again, as I wrote on Sunday, despite the 13 first-round picks who remain unsigned, and despite the deadline looming at just over a week away, most within the industry feel that all 30 picks will be professionals when we wake up on August 16.
