2012 Fantasy Baseball Projections: Why You Should Sell High on Chicago White Sox’ Chris Sale

In 138.2 innings this season, Sale leads all pitchers not named Justin Verlander or Felix Hernandez in WAR with a mark of +4.1. Sale’s strikeout rate (8.57), walk rate (2.01) and WHIP (1.02) are ace-like, and he’s allowed two runs or less in 14 or his 20 starts. And this is why it’s time to sell…

2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections: What’s Wrong With Atlanta Braves’ Dan Uggla?

2010 was a banner year for Dan Uggla, as the slugging second baseman posted career-highs in batting average (.287), home runs (33) and RBI (105).

A trade to Atlanta last November sent his fantasy value even higher, as managers salivated at the thought of a lineup that included Martin Prado, Jason Heyward, Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Dan Uggla, and for good reason. Since his major league debut in 2006, Uggla had hit the second-most HRs (154) among non-first basemen in the majors.

2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections: Buy or Sell Texas Rangers’ Alexi Ogando?

Texas Rangers’ pitcher Alexi Ogando twirled another gem on Wednesday, limiting the Tigers to just one run on six hits in 7.2 innings. The 27-year-old outfielder-turned-reliever-turned-starting pitcher has turned in 10 quality starts in 12 outings this season, and is fourth among qualified starters with a 2.10 ERA.

The question is, of course: Is Alexi Ogando for real?

2011 Fantasy Baseball Projections: Buy or Sell Atlanta Braves’ Jair Jurrjens?

Atlanta Braves’ pitcher Jair Jurrjens is enjoying a career year. The 25-year-old right-hander leads the majors with a minuscule 1.75 ERA (min. 70 innings) through 10 starts this season.
Despite this, his advanced statistics tell a very different story…Or do they?

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…
