2012 Draft Prep: Our final mock draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •

We're talking late-breaking news, in-depth analysis, big-name interviews and, naturally, some light-hearted banter, and you get it all just by staring at a glowing box. You don't even have to read anything. We couldn't have made it any easier.

Don't Just Play, Play to Win!
Fantasy Baseball Today Be sure to catch Fantasy Baseball 360 LIVE at 5 p.m. ET every weekday to dominate your Fantasy leagues. Our writers will have the latest news, analysis and roster trends each afternoon.

Needless to say, we're pretty excited about it here, and in anticipation of our premiere on Wednesday, April 4, we decided to put a league together. Novel idea, right?

The cast -- which includes not only me, but Al Melchior, Nando Di Fino and our host Jorge Sedano -- will compete alongside the crew for bragging rights in this 10-team Head-to-Head categorical league. Usually when we say Head-to-Head here at CBSSports.com, we mean Head-to-Head points. In categorical play, each week is like a mini Rotisserie game. Two teams square off in the standard 5x5 categories. The one that fares better in the majority of the categories wins the matchup.

Because contributions like doubles, triples and walks have no influence on the scoring, the evaluation of players is closer to Rotisserie. Then again, because each team starts fewer hitters than a standard Rotisserie format and because the season is reduced from a marathon to a series of short sprints, some of the draft strategies -- such as loading up on pitchers early and avoiding streakier, injury-prone players -- are closer to Head-to-Head.

The hybrid format led to some curious bargains early in the draft, such as usual second-rounders Ian Kinsler, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Justin Upton and Jose Reyes all going in the Round 3.

Of course, playing with only 10 teams likely had something to do with that as well.

Coco Crisp absent from Friday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:57 pm ET) Athletics leadoff hitter Coco Crisp is nowhere to be found in the Friday lineup against Texas. He is getting the night off as John Jaso will top the order.

Crisp has cooled off since Independence Day with seven hits, including six singles, in 38 at-bats. But he still boasts a healthy .278/.377/.422 stat line and has scored 51 runs despite just 277 at-bats on the year.


Yoenis Cespedes back in action against Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:53 pm ET) Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes is set to start Friday against Texas after missing the Thursday game with a thumb injury.

Cespedes has been on a tear of late with eight hits in his last five games, including a two-tater performance Wednesday against Houston in which he drove in five runs.


Asdrubal Cabrera remains sidelined Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:52 pm ET) Though he was hoping to return in time for the start of this weekend's series against the Royals, Indians infielder Asdrubal Cabrera is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game. Cabrera has not played since Monday as a result of the injury. 

Jim Adduci set to start Friday for Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:46 pm ET) The continued absence of Jake Smolinski with a foot injury has Jim Adduci starting in left field for the Rangers on Friday against Oakland.

Adduci, who was activated off the disabled list Monday, is batting .250 in 28 at-bats this season. But he is just 1 for 15 since returning.


Logan Darnell getting the call for Saturday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:40 pm ET) The Twins will recall pitcher Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday against the White Sox, the team announced.

Darnell will start in Kyle Gibson's place, as a back injury is keeping him off the mound. Darnell previously appeared in one game for the Twins, tossing three scoreless innings in early May. He has a 3.43 ERA in 94 1/3 innings at Rochester.


Kyle Gibson scratched from Saturday's start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:36 pm ET) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson's back injury will keep him out yet again Saturday, as the team announced he will not make his scheduled start against the White Sox.

Gibson has not pitched since July 18 due to this injury, as he was scratched from his previously scheduled outing Wednesday. Logan Darnell will be recalled from Triple-A to make the start, and it is not clear at this point if Gibson will be placed on the disabled list to clear the roster spot.
