2012 Draft Prep: Mixed League 5x5 auction

  •  

After branching out for the American League and National League auctions, we kept our 5x5 mixed-league auction in house. So as you might expect, the 12 participants more or less went by the book.

No player went more than $11 over his (admittedly conservative) projected auction value, and the two who went most over -- Starlin Castro and Troy Tulowitzki -- just so happen to play the thinnest position in Fantasy. So if you came hoping to see a bunch of reaches, better luck next time. Nobody did anything to make anybody fall out of his chair.

Perhaps that's a good thing. After all, if this auction is meant to serve as an example to the masses, it should be as middle-of-the-road as possible. But the danger in an auction that follows the projected values so closely is it might give you a false sense of security. Not every auction -- particularly not every mixed-league auction -- has the highest player go for only $42. In leagues where everyone subscribes to the studs-and-duds approach, the first-round types might all go off the board in the $45-50 range, which will of course lead to dwindling dollars later in the auction, thereby creating value picks.

Even with this more conservative approach, a few bargains stand out. The winners of Andre Ethier and Melky Cabrera (both $5) benefited from the lack of money in circulation late in the auction, as did the winners of Ricky Romero ($10), Anibal Sanchez ($5) and Jeremy Hellickson ($4). Brian Wilson ($11) isn't really $6 better than Jose Valverde ($5) or $7 better than Joel Hanrahan ($4). And Billy Butler going for $7 after Eric Hosmer went for $23 is just wacky. Of course, Josh Hamilton at $12 stands out as well, but for a different reason. He was the first player nominated, when everyone was still rubbing the sleep out of their eyes.

David Freese not in starting lineup Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:04 am ET) Angels third baseman David Freese is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

Freese is dealing with a quad injury, and was not in the team's lineup Friday night. Ian Stewart played well in his absence, and will get the start the second straight day. Freese is hitting just .151 in 53 at-bats.


Steven Souza marching back to Syracuse
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:52 am ET) The Nationals have optioned shortstop Steven Souza back to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Denard Span.

Souza did not start a game during his short stint, but did manage one hit in four at-bats.


Shane Victorino set for rehab game Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino began his rehab Saturday at Triple-A, according to the Providence Journal

Victorino is set to play right and hit second. He will receive three at-bats, and should see five or six innings in the field. He's attempting to come back from a hamstring injury.


Braves contemplating rotation for near-future
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:47 am ET) Gavin Floyd or David Hale could be the odd man out when all shakes out for the sizzling Braves starting rotation, which boasts a major-league best 1.47 ERA this season.

The surprising start by Aaron Harang could result in Floyd not landing a starting spot when he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com has speculated. Floyd gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab appearancce Friday for Double-A Mississippi. He will likely require at least two more rehab starts before he is ready to return.

Hale owns a 2.89 ERA in two starts for the Braves, but might be the most likely to be on the outside looking in once Floyd returns.


Xander Bogaerts gets a rest Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is not in the team's starting lineup Saturday.

It's the first game Bogaerts has missed all season. He's hitting .271 in 59 at-bats. Bogaerts will be replaced by Jonathan Herrera at short.


Yadier Molina resting Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 am ET) Cardinals sizzling catcher Yadier Molina won't get a chance to extend his 10-game hitting streak Saturday unless he pinch-hits. He has been given the day off as Tony Cruz takes over the position for the game against Washington.

Molina has 16 hits in his last 37 at-bats and owns .344/.373/.547 stat line on the season.


Denard Span back Saturday with Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Nationals center fielder Denard Span has returned to the lineup for the Saturday game against St. Louis after recovering from a concussion that has kept him out since April 11.

Span, who told MASN that he felt like he never sustained the head injury, is hoping to hit better than he had been before leaving for a minor league rehab. He had just three hits in his previous 24 at-bats to drop his average to .222.


Jose Reyes returns to action Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:19 am ET) Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes returned to the starting lineup Saturday against the Indians.

Reyes was activated from the disabled list Friday, and was expected to return Saturday. He missed a couple weeks due to a hamstring injury. Reyes will hit leadoff against Cleveland in his return.


Michael Bourn sitting out Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:12 am ET) Indians outfielder Michael Bourn is not in the team's lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Bourn returned to the lineup this week after missing time with a hamstring injury. It's assumed that Saturday is just a routine day off for Bourn. He should return to the lineup in a few days.


Adam LaRoche boasts fine numbers despite mini-slump
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:10 am ET) Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche has cooled off after a torrid start, but still boasts strong numbers heading into late April.

LaRoche has just one RBI in the last nine games and 4 for 21 in the last five, but he does own a three-game hitting streak and a fine .412 on-base percentage this season. His 11 runs and 10 RBI this year also show far greater productivity than what he managed in a highly disappointing 2013.
