Fantasy Focus: Endgame Players

0

Joe Oberkrieser

Ponder these guys, take a chance, spend a buck, and reap big rewards at the back end of your league's draft or auction.

The answer to that last question is a decisive "yes." In any draft, there are some intriguing end-game picks out there, players you should be able to pick up for only a buck or in the last round of your draft. None of these guys is a star--far from it. But all are able to help your fantasy team at least a little bit.

Moorad v. Boras, the growth of Omar Infante, and the Royals rotation--all this and much more in today's Prospectus Triple Play

Arizona acquired Cruz from Tampa Bay on February 6th for HACKING MASS MVP Casey Fossum. The trade was a good one for the Diamondbacks, especially considering the alternative in center field, Luis Terrero, is probably better suited for the role of fourth outfielder. Cruz is coming off a season in which he hit 21 homers and walked 76 times in Tampa Bay. Last year was a dip from 2003's performance, when he hit 20 home runs and walked 102 times for San Francisco, and finished second behind Barry Bonds among Giants position players in terms of wins above replacement.

The Diamondbacks need to take a long look at their aging core. The Tigers' success isn't the result of luck, while the Royals' struggles are due, in part, to a lack of strikeouts and defense. All this and more news from Arizona, Detroit and Kansas City in your Wednesday Prospectus Triple Play.

    Are the Angels the favorites in the AL West, according to PECOTA? How hard did Dusty work Cub starters in '03? And do the Tigers have a better option than playing Alex Sanchez every day?
