2013 Draft Prep: 12-team Roto mock

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Why not ring in the new year with a little mock draft, Rotisserie-style, to get an early look at what February and March have in store? The participants ...

As you can see, not everyone went by the book. Miguel Cabrera was the first pick, sure, but Ryan Braun, a candidate for the top spot, dropped to fourth, behind No. 1 pitcher Justin Verlander and sophomore sensation Mike Trout. The end of the first round is where opinions really started to vary, though. Evan Longoria and Troy Tulowitzki are both justifiable selections, but any of Picks 11-19 could have conceivably gone off the board at that point. Whether that means the pool of legitimate first-rounders extends halfway into the second round or ends with Pick 10 is a matter of perspective.

As typically happens in Rotisserie leagues, pitchers weren't in high demand. Sure, the perennial Cy Young contenders like Clayton Kershaw, Felix Hernandez and David Price went off the board early, but top-20 options like James Shields and Yu Darvish were still available in Round 8. And closers? Forget it. After Craig Kimbrel in Round 6, the next one (Jonathan Papelbon) didn't go off the board until Round 10.

This group wasn't shy about reaching for rookies. Even the ones who aren't assured roster spots at the start of the season -- from Wil Myers in Round 12 to Travis d'Arnaud, Billy Hamilton and Jurickson Profar later on -- were in high demand here. After the impact Trout and Bryce Harper made as late-April call-ups last year, stashing these guys ahead of time might become the norm.

A few other observations: Between Ben Revere, Carlos Gomez, Alcides Escobar, Brett Gardner, Norichika Aoki, Everth Cabrera, Coco Crisp and Adam Eaton, plenty of speed was available late. You don't want to shortchange power early ... Melky Cabrera might not be universally distrusted after all. Round 9 isn't exactly a bargain for him, given the risk ... Because David Ortiz and Victor Martinez are the only two DH-only players worth selecting in mixed leagues, they have a tendency to get lost in the shuffle. Ortiz in particular went a good two or three rounds later than he should have in each of our first two mock drafts.

Brewers' Lucroy could get into spring game sooner than expected
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:32 pm ET) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is progressing fast enough in his recovery from a right hamstring strain that he could play in spring games sooner than expected. Lucroy wasn't expected to get into spring games until the last week or two of spring training, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I think it’ll be a lot sooner than that," Lucroy said Friday. "I feel pretty good already but obviously we’re going to be cautiously optimistic about it and take our time. There’s no sense in rushing it because I’m sure I’ll get plenty of playing time so I’m not really too worried about it."

Manager Ron Roenicke confirmed Lucroy's new timetable.

"We talked to the minor-league side to see what they have going on, and they’ve got some simulated games or BP starting the 11th," Roenicke said. "Luc would like to see some live pitching before so we’ll try to pick some spots before to see if we can get him feeling pretty comfortable before he starts some games.

"The timing of it, the way I look at it on the schedule, we have a lot of games left once he starts playing. So I think we’ll be OK with it."


Orioles 2B Jonathan Schoop working on improving plate discipline
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop did not have a good strikeout-to-walk ratio in 2014, and he knows it. Orioles hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh has already declared he wants Schoop to show more patience at the plate in 2015, and Schoop seems to be on board with the strategy, per CSNBaltimore.com.

“I have to swing at strikes more, see more pitches. If you swing at strikes, you get better pitches,” said Schoop, who struck out 122 times and walked just 13 times last year. “I want to get better at everything. I want to get better than last year. If you want to get better, you have to work at everything.

“Walks are going to come. I’m not going in there to walk. I’m the type of hitter that’s aggressive. I want to swing the bat. The walks, I want them to go up, but I’m not going in there to walk. I’m going in there to swing. Hopefully be selective and swing at strikes. If they throw me four balls, I’ll take the base.”


Giants reassign Turley, Blackburn, Black to minor-league camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:18 pm ET) The Giants announced Friday they reassigned pitcher Nik Turley, pitcher Clayton Blackburn and pitcher Ray Black to minor-league camp. Blackburn is considered the Giants' fifth-best prospect by Baseball America.

Phillies ace Hamels throws two scoreless innings in spring debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:09 pm ET) Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels, who is seeking a trade, took the hill for the first time this spring Friday against the Yankees. Amid rainy conditions, the left-hander allowed one hit and no walks, while striking out two in two shutout innings.

"I guess that’s what you want to do, get in there, throw strikes and execute," Hamels said, per The Philadelphia Daily News. "I’ve been in a lot of springs and I know what I’m supposed to do with a certain pitch count and the first game and trying to build up. I’m not trying to go out there and blow by everybody. I’m just trying to hit my spots. I wasn't able to do it as much. But if you’re able to throw strikes, then I think that works. I had a general area that I needed to throw it in and I think I was able to do so."


Matt Harvey pitches like an ace in return to action for Mets
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:04 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitched in a game Friday against the Tigers for the first time in about 18 months, and the team couldn't have scripted a better outcome

Harvey, who made his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in Oct. 2013, threw two perfect innings during Friday's spring game and reached as high as 99 mph on the radar gun.

"I feel like I never left," Harvey said, per MLB.com. "I could tell the ball was coming out good. I think I let a few go, but for the most part I was really trying to stay loose and hit my spots, and I felt pretty confident with that."

Harvey began the game with a strikeout of Anthony Gose on a 98 mph fastball. He then broke the bats of Jose Iglesias and Rajai Davis on grounders. 

Harvey returned in the second inning with a flyout and two more strikeouts. He threw 25 pitches.


Rays' Cash expecting Desmond Jennings to play a lot in LF
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:56 pm ET) Rays manager Kevin Cash said outfielder Desmond Jennings will play a lot in left field this season, per MLB.com.

"That was part of the coversations we've had in the offseason, and we're very much on board with that," Cash said.

Jennings is a skilled center fielder, but Kevin Kiermaier is considered a strong defender with an above-average arm, which gives Cash options for his defensive alignment. Playing in left field could also be a way for the Rays to keep Jennings in the lineup and off of the trainer's table.

"Part of the thought we've had, we know there's more in there, [Jennings] knows there's more in there," Cash said. "He had some hiccups last year with health, staying on the field. So it's tough to really gauge a guy when you're battling some injury issues throughout the course of the year. But you look at certain parts of his seasons, and he's done some unbelievable things."


Tigers SS Jose Iglesias exits Friday's game due to shin contusion
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) The Tigers front office and coaching staff probably held their breath for a bit when shortstop Jose Iglesias left Friday's spring game against the Mets with a right shin contusion, seeing how Iglesias missed all of the 2014 season with fractures in both of his shins.

However, it doesn't appear Iglesias suffered a major injury or setback, as the Tigers said his injury is not related to last year's injuries.

"I slid too late and hit it in the wrong spot, but I'll be fine," he said, per the Detroit Free Press.

Iglesias was 1 for 2 with one run, one RBI and one stolen base before leaving Friday's game -- his second appearance this spring.


Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista scratched Friday with hamstring injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:31 pm ET) Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista was scratched from Friday's spring game against the Orioles due to right hamstring tightness.

Bautista played in a 155 games in 2014 after playing less than 120 games the previous two seasons. Bautista has totaled 187 home runs and slugged .559 since the 2010 season. He has been an All-Star for five straight years.


Cardinals CF Jon Jay (wrist) hoping to be ready by opening day
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:26 pm ET) Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay is confident he'll be able to participate on opening day, according to MLB.com

Jay is recovering from a wrist injury which has limited him during the beginning of spring training. Jay said he's progressing enough to be ready by the time the regular season is set to start. 

"The timeline is to be ready April 5," Jay said. "I'm trying to be smart about it. I feel good with where I am now and how much time is left in camp."

The Cardinals open with the Cubs on opening day. 

Jay had wrist surgery last October after dealing with pain during the 2014 season. Despite the injury, Jay was still able to hit .303 with 46 RBI in 140 games. 


Rays OF David DeJesus leaves game after getting hit on arm
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:25 pm ET) Rays outfielder David DeJesus left Friday's spring game against the Twins in the bottom of the fourth inning after getting hit by a pitch on the arm. However, the injury didn't appear to be serious as DeJesus was laughing and joking around in the dugout, per the Tampa Bay Times.

DeJesus went 1 for 1 before leaving Friday's game.
