  • Derek Lowe (6 INN, 7 H, ER, 4 Ks). Great value pick.
  • Chris Capuano (5 INN, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 Ks). Sometimes great, sometimes not.
  • Kenley Jansen (INN, BB, K). Great reliever for no saves.
  • Cole Hamels (4 INN, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 Ks). A down season is looming.
  • Andrew Bailey (INN, BB, K). Elite closer potential.
  • Shane Victornio (1-1, RBI, SB). 30 SB season should be on tap.
  • Aramis Ramirez (1-3, HR, RBI). Good to get 1st of the Spring out of the way.
  • Alex Gonzalez (2-2, HR, RBI). 2nd of the Spring, looking for a nice sleeper season.
  • Chris Sale (4 2/3 INN, 8 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 Ks). Not the most trustworthy option.
  • Randy Wolf (5 2/3 INN, 6 H, 2 ER, BB, 4 Ks). Could give you some nice spot starts.
  • Jonathan Sanchez (5 1/3 INN, 6 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 Ks). Finally a good start, potential is there.
  • Greg Holland (INN, H, K). Could get first shot at closing job.
  • Trevor Cahill (4 2/3 INN, 5 H, 2 ER, BB, 6 Ks).  Great upside.
  • Alex Gordon (2-3, HR, RBI).  3rd of the Spring, still batting leadoff.
  • Jeremy Hellickson (3 INN, 11 H, 10 ER, 2 BB, K). Pass on draft day.
  • Glenn Perkins (INN, BB, K). Should be save guy at some point.
  • Matt Capps (INN, H, ER). Will lose job to Perkins.
  • Justin Morenau (2-2, 2 HR, 5 RBI). Bam, now he is on the fantasy radar again.
