2011 Fantasy Baseball Closer’s Corner, Week 10: Joakim Soria, Andrew Bailey, Jon Rauch & More

While messy bullpen situations dominated early-season headlines, the Closer’s Corner has been less exciting over the past few weeks. Here’s the latest:

Joakim Soria pitched two perfect innings Monday, earning the extra-inning win and re-gaining his role as the team’s closer. Aaron Crow didn’t see a save opportunity in his one week as the Royals closer, and will return to a setup role…

2011 Fantasy Baseball Prospect Report: Oakland Athletics’ Jemile Weeks

The Oakland Athletics promoted second base prospect Jemile Weeks from Triple-A on Monday. The younger brother of Rickie Weeks (and the A’s No. 5 prospect according to Baseball America) is expected to fill in for the injured Mark Ellis. The recently acquired Scott Sizemore will likely move to third base.

Weeks was the A’s first round pick in 2008, but just like his brother, injuries have limited his production. Hip and leg injuries have prevented him from playing a full season. In three-plus seasons in the minor leagues, Weeks has compiled only 873 at-bats…

2011 Fantasy Baseball Prospect Report: Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dee Gordon

The Los Angeles Dodgers made a few roster moves Monday, none more shocking than the promotion of top prospect Dee Gordon. Given Rafael Furcal’s return to the DL, Gordon figures to steal most of the starts at shortstop from utility man Jamey Carroll.

2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections: Why You Should Buy Low on Chicago White Sox’s Alex Rios

After a year in which Alex Rios hit 21 HRs, swiped 34 bases and hit .284 in the middle of a potent White Sox lineup, the 30-year-old center fielder has slumped through the first two months of 2011, posting a pathetic .201/.253/.306 slash with four HRs and four steals in 225 plate appearances.

A look at Rios’ advanced stats, however, suggest that now is a great time to buy-low on the 18-HR, 30-steal, .275 three-year average player…
