2012 Draft Prep: 12-team, mixed H2H draft

  •  

The first surprise of our latest mock draft came with the second overall pick, where Roy Halladay went ahead of Fantasy royalty Albert Pujols, Jose Bautista, Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Kemp. A mistake? Well, it is a Head-to-Head league, and as a general rule, pitchers go off the board sooner in Head-to-Head than Rotisserie. One reason is because pitchers tend to outscore hitters in Head-to-Head, but the bigger reason is because Head-to-Head owners don't have nearly as many hitter slots to fill.

Only three outfielders? Only one catcher? Yup, those are just two examples, and you can see the impact they have on the draft. Carlos Santana went off the board in the second round, but the next catcher didn't go until the eighth round, when Jeff Tobin selected Alex Avila. With only 12 catchers likely to get drafted in a 12-team Head-to-Head league, the whole position tends to go later than in Rotisserie. So was Santana a reach? Hard to say, but because his extra playing time and superior walk rate actually count for something in Head-to-Head, he has a bigger advantage at the position than he does in Rotisserie.

To those familiar with the rankings, a few of these picks might seem out of place. Nick Markakis ahead of Michael Morse? Logan Morrison ahead of Mike Napoli? Dustin Ackley ahead of Nelson Cruz? What? Hey, these people know their stuff. They've played in enough Head-to-Head leagues to understand what type of players get a boost in the format. When doubles, triples, walks and strikeouts count for something, the players who excel in one or more of those areas end up being surprisingly productive. They're called format-specific picks, and if you can get them at a discount, even better.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:51 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon knows outfielder Jorge Soler is anxious to take his cuts at the plate, but he wants his young player to stay patient and not make unnecessary changes, according to MLB.com.

"Seriously, when you're walking, you're hitting," Maddon said.

Soler is hitting .257 with three home runs and nine RBI and six walks, the fourth most on the team this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:45 pm ET) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar was forced to leave Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury when Andrelton Simmons slid directly into his glove and ripped it off his hand, the team announced.

Danny Espinosa shifted over to third base and Dan Uggla took over at second. Escobar was 0 for 2 in the game and is hitting .284 in 67 at-bats this season.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:40 pm ET) The Red Sox announced that third baseman Pablo Sandoval left Monday's game against the Blue Jays due to neck soreness, according to the Boston Herald.

Indians trying to be patient with Jose Ramirez
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8:14 pm ET) Despite struggling to open the season, the Indians want to be patient with shortstop Jose Ramirez, reports MLB.com.

"I would encourage [fans] to take a look at Jose Ramirez's body of work," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said, per MLB.com. "Not only what he did last year at the Major League level, but the way he played and performed throughout our development system, because he's a guy that's produced at each level and played very well at each stop he's been at -- including the Major Leagues."

Ramirez is hitting .196 with one home run in 51 at-bats this season and the team has prospect Francisco Lindor waiting in the minor leagues.

"Admittedly, he's had a rough start to the season -- offensively, especially -- but he's the same guy that came up last year, struggled initially and then figured things out the second time and performed pretty well and was a big part of our team's success in the second half," Antonetti said. 


Astros outfielder George Springer working on body control at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:43 pm ET) Astros outfielder George Springer has spent the past few days in the batting cage, trying to work on the mechanics of his swing, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"These last six or seven days, I've been trying to be a slow as I can and decrease the effort, but still have the same swing," Springer said over the weekend. "You just got to stick with that and you know, carry over into the game."

Springer is hitting just .188 with two home runs in 69 at-bats this season, but is batting .231 on 26 at-bats on Houston's current road trip. Manager A.J. Hinch thinks it's just a matter of time. 

"George is coming around," Hinch said. 'He's very hard on himself, and that's not always a bad thing. I think players need to hold themselves pretty accountable, be tough on themselves. But for him to get timely hits (Friday) and begin the one rally with the double, and then come through with the tack-on run (in the 11th inning Friday) that proved to be very important is a good sign.

"George works on controlling his aggression. With George, it's in overdrive sometimes, and he's been trying to control the pace of his swing, and understand he doesn't have to over-swing to do damage. He can do enough damage just at 80, 85, 90 percent."


Phillies second baseman Chase Utley trying to snap out of funk
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:39 pm ET) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley remains the No. 3 hitter in Philadelphia's lineup despite hitting just .121 so far this season. It's been a battle for Utley at the plate, but manager Ryne Sandberg thinks he's close to putting it all together, reports MLB.com.

"He's just a series or two away from getting hot and getting to where he wants to be," Sandberg said. "He's stung the ball."

Utley has two home runs and nine RBI on 58 at-bats this season.


Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy has torn UCL, out for season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7:27 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy got the news he feared. 

McCarthy has a torn ulnar collateral ligament and will miss the remainder of the 2015 season, the team announced. This injury is usually accompanied by Tommy John surgery. 

McCarthy said he will aim to return before the 2016 MLB All-Star break

McCarthy previously said he was hoping for the injury simply to be tendinitis. Initial tests came back negative, though now a tear has been confirmed. With McCarthy immediately sidelined, Scott Baker will receive a start either Friday or Saturday. 

McCarthy was 3-0 in four games this season with a 5.87 ERA. He struck out 29 batters, walked four and allowed 24 hits in 23 innings of work.
