Santana is another player with eligibility at both infield and outfield positions. The 23-year-old is hitting a remarkable .370/.407/.506 with two home runs and four stolen bases in 24 games with the Twins. Minnesota will sacrifice some defense in center field in order to keep his hot bat in the lineup over Aaron Hicks, and he may see reps at shortstop to spell Eduardo Escobar. Santana’s best tool is his speed. He stole as many as 30 bags in the minor leagues. When the hot start begins to fade, it will be his speed that will continue to provide value. That speed will also help him maintain an elevated BABIP, leading to more opportunites for runs scored at the top of the Twins’ lineup. He should be in fantasy lineups right now, but will remain valuable as a reserve in formats of 12 teams or deeper all year.
It’s an exciting time as more prospects inch closer to a big league call up. Some, like Jon Singleton, have already started their major league careers. Singleton is one of the many FAAB fantasy baseball targets that ROTOscouting has covered this season. This week, we’ll expand our focus to a free agent veteran as well as a few more impact bats still in the minors. Bid recommendations are based on a $100 FAAB budget. All players listed are available in the majority of leagues across all three major fantasy platforms.
ROTOscouting scours the waiver wire for the best FAAB fantasy baseball targets every week. Last week’s pick, Jimmy Nelson, hurled 5.2 scoreless innings with six strikeouts in a win against the hot-hitting Marlins. This week we’ll look at pitching prospects set to make their debuts in the near future, a Rays pitcher tearing it up in Triple-A, and a pair of relievers who are smart pickups for owners speculating on saves. Bid recommendations are based on a $100 FAAB budget. Players listed are available in the majority of leagues across all three major platforms.
Every week ROTOscouting combs the wire for the best FAAB fantasy baseball targets at each position. Last week’s first base pick, Garrett Jones, paid dividends with a two-homer game. This week will feature multiple prospects with the potential to make an impact. We’ll look at a recent Braves call-up, a Dodgers outfielder expected to debut soon and an Indians prospect whose bat has caught up with his glove. Bid recommendations are based on a $100 FAAB budget. Players listed are available in the majority of leagues across all three major fantasy platforms.
Each week we identify FAAB top targets at each position on the diamond. Last week, A.J. Pollock appeared in this column prior to a big weekend that had him popping up in many fantasy free agent articles. This time, we’ll look at the other side of the catcher platoon in Oakland, a fresh call up in Seattle, and the return of a veteran shortstop. We’ll also discuss a Cardinals prospect on the verge of making an impact in all formats. Bid recommendations are based on a $100 FAAB budget. Players listed are available in the majority of leagues across all three major fantasy platforms.
We scour the waiver wire to find players at each position that are worth your FAAB dollars. This week’s FAAB top targets features a pair of Diamondbacks, two up and coming middle infielders, and this year’s surprise at catcher. We’ll also focus on players whose splits can be particularly useful in leagues with daily roster changes. Recommended bids are based on a $100 budget. Players listed are available in the majority of leagues across all three major formats.
This week’s FAAB Top Targets includes a pair of young Angels hitters, a new option for stolen bases, and a power-hitting catcher. Speaking of power, we’ll also take a look at a masher from the NL Central who can hit homers in bunches. As always, there is a target for every position on the diamond and each player is widely available in all three major formats.
With a month of the MLB season in the books, there are plenty of great options sitting on the wire in many fantasy formats. This week’s FAAB top targets include a versatile Rockies hitter, two prospects knocking on the door of the majors, and a young outfielder whose upside remains intact even after an injury riddled season.
FAAB Top Targets: Fantasy Baseball Auction ValuesThis week’s crop of FAAB top targets includes a definite add for stolen bases, a talented power hitter with a fresh start and top prospect thriving in his everyday role. We’ll also look at a couple of intriguing middle infielders – one whose current slump has him being dropped in far too many leagues, and another who is in Triple-A forcing his way into the MLB picture.
This week’s FAAB top targets include the year’s first big prospect call up as well as a former first-round pick hitting his offensive stride. We’ll also feature a veteran third baseman who suddenly finds himself with an opportunity thanks to a star player’s injury and we’ll attempt to glean some fantasy value out of the Mets’ first base situation. Whether it’s an injury replacement or the next young stud on offense, ROTOscouting has you covered at every position on the diamond.
