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.

Edwin Jackson loses in first quality start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7:56 pm ET) Cubs starting pitcher Edwin Jackson threw the ball well Thursday against the Diamondbacks, but didn't get much help as he dropped his second decision in a 5-2 loss.

Jackson recorded his first quality start of the season, limiting the Diamondbacks to three runs in seven innings of work. He allowed five hits and a pair of walks, but had to settle for the loss, his second of the season. Jackson finished the start with four strikeouts, while throwing 64 of 104 pitches for strikes.

Jackson is off to a rocky start to the season, posting a 5.02 ERA and 1-2 record through five starts. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Tuesday in Cincinnati.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7:32 pm ET) The Yankees will have David Phelps step into the rotation in place of Michael Pineda moving forward, FOXSports.com reports.

Manny Machado could return in Minnesota
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jim Johnson could soon be 'part of ninth-inning mix'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:55 pm ET) Athletics manager Bob Melvin told the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday that reliever Jim Johnson could soon "be part of the mix in the ninth inning." The A's have been using a closer-by-committee approach since Johnson's last blown save.

Since losing the closer role on April 9, Johnson has tossed five straight scoreless outings, none of which have come in the ninth inning. He's allowed five hits and two walks while striking out six in 6 2/3 scoreless innings since his last ninth-inning meltdown.

A.J. Griffin will seek second opinion on Tuesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:39 pm ET) Athletics starting pitcher A.J. Griffin (elbow) will get a second option from Dr. Thomas Mehlhoff on his injured elbow on Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports on Thursday.

Griffin began throwing this week, but has not been "feeling great," according to the report. Prior to that, he had been shut down for just over a month due to flexor tendinitis. Surgery remains a possibility for the 26-year-old, who posted a 3.83 ERA in 200 innings last year.
