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.

Report: Padres continue to talk to Braves about Justin Upton
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:15 am ET) The Padres continue to talk to the Braves about outfielder Justin Upton, according to Bleacher Report's Scott Miller.

Despite the fact that the Padres acquired both Matt Kemp and Wil Myers on Thursday, the team may not be done yet. It's unclear where Upton would fit into the team's plans, but he would be a clear upgrade over whoever the club is planning to start in center field. If the team were to acquire Upton, one of that trio would be pushed into action in center. While Kemp has experience at the position, he's not considered a strong defender. 

The 27-year-old Upton is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.342/.491 over 566 at-bats.

Beachy's representative, Robert Martin said Beachy has multiple offers, but doesn't believe a decision is imminent.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Athletics have agreed to trade catcher Derek Norris to the Padres, according to the New York Daily News.

After dealing Yasmani Grandal to Los Angeles in the Matt Kemp deal, the Padres were in need of a new backstop. It didn't take long for them to replace Grandal, as the team acquired Norris shortly after the Kemp deal went through.

Pitcher Seth Streich will also head to the Padres in the deal, according to FoxSports.com The 23-year-old posted a 3.16 ERA over 114 innings in High A last season.

The 25-year-old Norris is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.361/.403 over 385 at-bats. Norris is under team control through the 2018 season.

The Athletics are expected to receive pitchers Jesse Hahn and R.J. Alvarez in the deal, according to Yahoo! The 24-year-old Alvarez posted a 1.25 ERA over 43 1/3 innings at Double-A last year.

Hahn, 25, posted a 3.07 ERA over 73 1/3 innings in the majors last year. He was excellent in Double-A, posting a 1.91 ERA in 42 1/3 innings before being called up.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Rockies are looking at a number of veteran right-handers to fill out the rotation, according to MLB.com.

Kevin Correia, Aaron Harang, Josh Johnson and Kyle Kendrick have all been considered by the club.

Carter spent last season in Japan, pitching for the Nippon Ham Fighters. He posted a 3.97 ERA over 45 1/3 innings. 


Padres to sign Josh Johnson
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Padres are set to sign pitcher Josh Johnson to a one-year deal, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Yahoo initially reported the two sides were on the verge of a deal.

Johnson will make a base salary under $2 million, but can earn as much as $8 million due to incentives. Given his recent injury issues, it's assumed those incentives will revolve around both his numbers and his ability to remain healthy. Johnson signed with San Diego last season, but was unable to pitch after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The team declined his option during the offseason, but showed interest in re-signing Johnson to a lesser deal.

Johnson posted a 6.20 ERA in 81 1/3 innings with Toronto in 2013.
