2013 Draft Prep: 12-team, AL-only Roto draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

We went a little deeper with this one.

We still had 12 participants. We still had standard 23-man rosters -- and with no bench at that. But in our latest Rotisserie mock draft, we cut the player pool in half.

None of that Senior Circuit talk here.

This group did it AL style ...

The takeaways for you AL-only types are both good and bad.

First, the good ...

Everyone should get a halfway respectable first baseman. If you end up with James Loney as yours, you've fallen asleep at the wheel.

Filling out 24 catcher spots isn't as difficult as you'd think. Yeah, the last three or four aren't so great, but of the catchers not projected to get regular at-bats at the start of the season, some of the most intriguing -- such as Mike Zunino, Geovany Soto, Derek Norris and Ryan Lavarnway (who didn't even go in this draft) -- are in the AL.

You'll hate your outfield at the start of the draft, when you're taking Nick Swisher or Wil Myers as your No. 2 option, but with all of the speed specialists and solid-but-unspectacular Torii Hunter types available later, the position ends up being not so bad, especially compared to three-fourths of the infield.

Now, the bad ...

Second base is as much of a disaster here as in mixed leagues. If you don't extend yourself for Jason Kipnis or Jose Altuve after the elite foursome goes off the board, you're lining up in the punt formation.

You can't wait around at starting pitcher, at least not if you want someone halfway reliable. The safe options end with the top 10. After that, you get into Jake Peavy, Jon Lester and Josh Johnson territory. I pulled the trigger on Yu Darvish in the third round and died a little inside.

The most surprising position was third base. If you don't take Miguel Cabrera, Evan Longoria or Adrian Beltre in the first round, your only other hope before descending into the lower tiers is Brett Lawrie. Granted, settling for Kyle Seager, Will Middlebrooks or Mike Moustakas in the middle rounds isn't so terrible, but holding off until the middle rounds to draft them will take a few years off your life.

One last note about these league-specific formats: No, you don't want to reach for a high-end closer, but once the closers start going off the board, you better jump in there if you have any ambitions of accumulating saves this year. The second of the projected closers, Mariano Rivera, went off the board in Round 10. The last, Jose Veras, went in Round 14.

Ausmus: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (finger) could be out for a while
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) Brad Ausmus has declared that Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who injured his right middle finger on a hit-by-pitch Thursday, will miss "more than a couple days," per MLive.com. It remains to be seen if he's placed on the disabled list.

Iglesias is on a four-game hitting streak and has been steady for Detroit this season in compiling a slash line of .300/.347/.370.


Kendrys Moralres powers Royals to victory with four hits, four RBI
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:25 am ET) In a game where his team scored a more than two touchdowns-worth of runs, Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales had a terrific night at the plate. Morales went 4 for 5 with a double, four RBI and three runs scored in the 15-7 pounding of the Tigers.

The veteran slugger got the Royals on the board in the first inning, when he ripped a two-run single. He added a two-run double in the seventh and was a key component to the big win on Thursday.

Morales has been rolling lately, batting .441 with three doubles, four homers and 13 RBI over his last nine games.


Tigers' Matt Boyd can't get through the second, gets lit up Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:19 am ET) Tigers starter Matt Boyd turned in another poor outing on Thursday, as he was unable to record an out in the second inning before leaving the game. Boyd allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks, en route to the 15-7 thrashing by the Royals.

Boyd was staked to a 3-0 lead before he even took the mound. But he allowed two runs in the bottom of the first and four more in the second, with the big blow being a three-run homer by Lorezno Cain. The Tigers managed to rally back to tie the game, taking Boyd off the hook.

Boyd, whose ERA rose to 8.36 following Thursday's performance, has allowed at least five runs in three of his six starts with the Tigers since coming over in a trade from the Blue Jays. 


Torrid Rockies RF Carlos Gonzalez goes yard twice again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:18 am ET) There is no synonym in the thesaurus for "hot" that can adequately describe the tear Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez is on these days.

Gonzalez continued his sizzling stretch Thursday night against San Francisco by slamming two home runs, a double and a single. He slammed two-run taters in both the first and fourth innings.

He has six hits, including four home runs, in his last two games. He has scored five runs and driven in 11 in that short stretch.

Gonzalez now boasts a slugging percentage of .563 that has risen more than 100 points over the last six weeks.


Royals SP Edinson Volquez suffers rare poor start on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:16 am ET) Royals starter Edinson Volquez scuffled in his latest outing against the Tigers on Thursday. The right-hander allowed six runs on eight hits over three innings, snapping a string of nine straight starts with at least six innings pitched.

Volquez, whose ERA rose to 3.53, have up three runs in the very first inning, including a solo home run to Anthony Gose to lead off the game. But the Royals rallied back to give Volquez a 6-2 lead after the second inning.

He has given up more than three runs just three times in his last 12 starts. The six runs allowed Thursday are the most he's given up since June 2014.


Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong mashed again in third straight loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:08 am ET) One might have thought it couldn't get much worse for Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. One might have been wrong.

Vogelsong has been downright masterful lately in comparison to the pounding he took Thursday in Colorado. He surrendered eight runs on 11 hits in just three innings for his third consecutive defeat. He walked none and fanned one.

The right-hander yielded a two-run homer to sizzling Carlos Gonzalez in a four-run first inning in which he gave up six hits and it was all downhill from there. 

Vogelsong, who is trying in vain to maintain a rotation spot, has given up 14 runs over his last 11 innings to send his ERA soaring to 4.58.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin tosses second complete game at Coors
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin didn't just beat the Giants on Thursday night. He made history.

Rusin became the first Colorado pitcher to toss two complete games at Coors Field in the same season since Aaron Cook in 2008. He allowed three runs on six hits with one walk and five strikeouts. He threw 69 of 103 pitches for strikes.

Oddly, two of the three runs he allowed came off the bat of opposing pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, who took him yard in the third.

Rusin has four quality starts over his last five outings and has lowered his ERA to 4.78, which is not bad considering he gave up 11 runs in two innings in a start two weeks ago.


Padres demote RP Caleb Thielbar, RP Chris Rearick
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Padres left-handed relievers Caleb Thielbar and Chris Rearick both cleared waivers and have been outrighted, per U-T San Diego.

Thielbar has been sent to Triple-A El Paso while Rearick is headed to Double-A San Antonio.


Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez shuts down Pirates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez didn't exactly heighten the tension in his performance against visiting Pittsburgh on Thursday. That's just the way he wanted it.

Rodriguez needed a mere eight pitches to dispose of the Pirates in the ninth inning after arriving with a 5-3 lead. He induced three groundouts to record his 33rd save in 34 opportunities.


PIrates SP Francisco Liriano falls apart in loss to Brewers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) The Pirates had won 11 consecutive games started by southpaw Francisco Liriano when they arrived at the ballpark Thursday in Milwaukee.

Liriano didn't allow them to make it 12. He continued to slump with a weak effort in which he allowed four runs on seven hits in just five innings with five walks and four strikeouts. The walk total was his highest since April 26.

He was fine through four, but a Khris Davis double tallied one in the fifth and a walk, triple and double to start the sixth sent him to the showers.

Liriano now owns a 3.40 ERA, its highest point since May 29. He has given up 19 runs in 32 1/3 innings since the beginning of August.
