2013 Draft Prep: Early 12-team, Head-to-Head mock

  •  

In our first head-to-head mock draft for 2013, there were plenty of familiar names from past years in the early rounds, though there was one glaring exception. Once Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and Ryan Braun went off the board with the first three picks, 2012 American League Rookie of the Year Mike Trout was taken with pick No. 4. After just 179 major league games, it appears Trout is already considered to be among Fantasy's elites.

Pitchers are usually well represented among the top scorers in standard Head-to-Head formats, as was the case in 2012 when R.A. Dickey and Verlander were the two highest scorers overall, but in our mock draft, owners went for bats in the first two rounds. Only Verlander (second overall), Clayton Kershaw (12th) and David Price (21st) were selected among the first 24 picks. The real run on starters began in the third round, and Dickey was not taken until the first pick of the fifth round, reflecting the skepticism that many owners have about his chances for a repeat of last season. Relief-eligible pitchers starting going in the sixth round, and the first two taken -- Aroldis Chapman and Kris Medlen -- are both expected to be starters in 2013.

As far as hitters went, a premium was placed on the power positions -- first base and outfield. Within the first 19 picks, eight outfielders and four first basemen were taken. While high-producing talent is more scarce at other positions, owners were patient in pursuing third basemen, middle infielders and catchers.

While there weren't many surprises in the first five rounds, owners started to take chances in Round 6. Ian Desmond, Jacoby Ellsbury, Max Scherzer, Aroldis Chapman, Chris Sale and Kris Medlen -- all risks due to inconsistency or limited track records -- went in this round. And when did our owners start to get prospect fever? Minor league sensation Wil Myers, the prize sent to the Rays in the James Shields trade, was picked in the 12th round, but it wasn't until Trevor Bauer and Jurickson Profar were taken in the 17th round that we started to see prospects peppering the draft log.

Cardinals to attempt to trade RP Randy Choate
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) The Cardinals will look to move relief pitcher Randy Choate this offseason, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

I think in Choate’s case, for us, he’s fairly one-dimensional," general manager John Mozeliak said. "That makes it difficult for us to use him, particularly during a long season."

Choate posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 32:13 K:BB ratio in 36 innings during the regular season. He fared much better against left-handed hitters, who hit .093/.205/.147 in 75 at-bats against the reliever. Righties posted a .938 OPS when facing Choate in 2014.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:10 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker was scratched from his most recent scheduled start in the Arizona Fall League and will not pitch again in the league, although the team said he is completely healthy, MLB.com reports.

"Taijuan is completely healthy and was very impressive in his two outings, but made a personal decision that he needed to return home at this time," general manager Jack Zduriencik said in a statement. "He will continue with his offseason program and we look forward to seeing him at spring training in February."

Walker posted a 2.00 ERA in his two AFL starts, striking out 11 and walking two in nine innings of work.


Cardinals getting Trevor Rosenthal ready to be 2015 closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:08 pm ET) While other relievers have been told to condition themselves as starters before spring training opens, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal has been told he will stay in the bullpen, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Rosenthal, who had 45 saves in 2014, has not started since the 2012 season in the minors.

"We need Trevor to prepare to be a closer," manager Mike Matheny said. "This was the first full season that he pitched in that role. There's a learning curve to that, to understanding how to make it through a long season as a closer, and how to have the effectiveness, and how to stay in the strike zone and adjusting your workload as far as what you’re doing in between your appearances."


Jon Jay expected to be Cardinals' starting CF in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:48 pm ET) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay was bumped from the starting job in center field last spring when the team acquired Peter Bourjos in a trade from the Angels. However, as the season progressed, Jay worked his way back into being the regular center fielder and is on track to keep the job heading into 2015.

"Center field (for 2015) right now is Jon Jay’s, based on how he played," general manager John Mozeliak said at a news conference Monday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I think he played a much better center field than he did a year ago.

“Peter Bourjos is someone we have under control and certainly envision him being a part of this club. How we create more playing time for him is something we strategize over this offseason. But, clearly, Jay’s performance and how he played the second half frankly is altering how we look at him moving forward."

Mozeliak added Jay will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist Wednesday. He is expected to need 6-8 weeks of recovery, but he will be ready for spring training.
