2013 Draft Prep: American League Rotisserie auction

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Our AL-only auction had as many participants, as many roster spots to fill and as shallow of a player pool as our NL-only auction just a couple days earlier. But it had a different feel to it.

Granted, that's to be expected when the personnel changes. The cast for this one was as follows ...

1. Tim McLeod, RotoRob
2. Scott White, CBSSports.com
3. Jeff Boggis, FantasySportsEmpires.com
4. Greg Morgan, Mastersball.com
5. Grey Albright, Razzball
6. Al Melchior, CBSSports.com
7. Derek Carty, DerekCarty.com
8. Keith Cromer, Patton & Co
9. Nando Di Fino, CBSSports.com
10. Dean Peterson, Stats LLC
11. Mike Kuchera, FanDuel.com
12. Mike Gianella, Baseball Prospectus

Still, the differing approaches also say something about the two player pools.

The owners as a whole left more money on the table in this auction. A lot more. We're talking double-digit dollars for some. Obviously, that's not the goal. Any money unspent is money wasted. So why did it happen? The distribution of talent from start to finish caught some owners by surprise.

While the AL is heavy in elite talent, allowing players such as Jose Bautista, Evan Longoria, Adrian Beltre, Dustin Pedroia and Ian Kinsler to go for less than $30, it's light in the mid-level talent -- the Rickie Weeks, Andre Ethier and Adam LaRoche types -- that fill the bulk of NL-only rosters. Yeah, you'll find some decent players in the $15-20 range -- such as Nick Markakis, Michael Morse and Nelson Cruz -- but not enough for you to build a team on them. Stashing away money for the later stages will more likely stick you with a roster full of Matt Joyce and Trevor Plouffe types.

Of course, the AL-only pool is fairly deep in those lower-end types, allowing for such bargains as Mitch Moreland at $4, Ervin Santana at $4 and Josh Donaldson at $1. But at that point in the auction, enough people have already spent enough money that the prices go only so high for the ones who haven't.

Not everyone was as committed to getting a closer in this auction as the NL-only version even though the closer crop is equally thin in both leagues. While the NL-only owners placed a premium on closers, investing $14-19 in just about all of them, several AL closers fell short of that range. Having gotten shut out on the closer front in the NL-only auction, I felt pretty good getting Jim Johnson at $15 early in this one. In the end, though, I would have rather had the $3 I could have saved on Joel Hanrahan or Glen Perkins.

A few other observations ...

I'm not really sure what happened with Jose Reyes, who ended up tying Justin Verlander as the fourth-most expensive player at $34. The demand for some of the lower-end steals specialists wasn't at all that high, and shortstop, at least relative to second and third base, is fairly deep in the AL.

The R.A. Dickey skeptics are more likely to show themselves in deeper leagues, where whiffing on a pick could be catastrophic. While seemingly lesser pitchers like Yu Darvish, Max Scherzer and Chris Sale went for more than $20, Dickey went for $18 -- one less than Brett Anderson.

Alex Rodriguez went for $3. Yes, in an AL-only league. How the mighty have fallen.

The Ernesto Frieri bid came well after all the true closers had gone off the board and when one owner in particular still had an insane amount of money to spend. Safe to say he won't go for $2 more than Joe Nathan in most leagues.

Some of the more reliable non-strikeout pitchers got the cold shoulder in this auction, with Mark Buehrle going for $4 and Jason Vargas going for $3. Look, they'll still give you more strikeouts than a middle reliever would. They're worth purchasing at that price for the wins alone.

Editor's note: Utilize the sortable functionality to get a sense of the auction. View by team, dollar amount and position.

The 84 players that show up as $0 bids were selected in the seven-round reserve draft that immediately followed the auction.

Jason Grilli blasted in loss vs. Mariners
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:34 am ET) Angels pitcher Jason Grilli took a loss Tuesday, giving up four earned runs while recording just one out in his team's 13-2 defeat against the Mariners.

Grilli (1-3) walked a batter and hit another batter to open up the fifth inning, and after a sacrifice moved both runners into scoring position, he gave up back-to-back doubles to bring three runs home, getting himself pulled from the game with a man still in scoring position. That runner would come around to score, leaving him with his worst performance since joining the Angels. Grilli owns a 4.03 ERA and 51:19 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:29 am ET) Mariners pitcher Carson Smith earned a win Tuesday, walking one and striking out one in two scoreless innings in his team's 13-2 victory over the Angels.

Smith took over for an injured Roenis Elias and handled business in the fourth and fifth innings, and the offense exploded for 13 unanswered runs after falling behind 2-0 in the first inning. Smith has tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out six and walking two.


Cory Rasmus tosses four scoreless innings vs. Mariners
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:26 am ET) Angels pitcher Cory Rasmus wasn't a factor in the decision Tuesday, giving up just one hit in four scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 13-2 loss to the Mariners.

Rasmus, who has mostly pitched in relief this season, wasn't going to be given a full workload no matter the results, but he was removed after just 43 pitches after passing that mark in three of his previous four outings. The bullpen immediately blew the lead upon Rasmus' exit. He owns a 2.57 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 51:15 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. Rasmus is scheduled to face the Rangers Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:25 am ET) Padres pitcher Kevin Quackenbush earned his fourth save Tuesday, giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one in his team's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

Quackenbush walked a batter with one out, and after the runner took second on catcher's indifference with two outs, a single brought him home to give the reliever his second earned run in his last three appearances. He owns a 2.68 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 53:18 K:BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings.

Kennedy (11-13) gave up a solo home run in the second inning and fell behind on a two-run blast in the fifth, but the offense was able to pick him up with three runs in the sixth. It was Kennedy's first time allowing multiple home runs in a start this season. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 196:67 K:BB ratio in 187 1/3 innings. Kennedy is slated to face the Giants Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:22 am ET) Phillies pitcher A.J. Burnett took a loss Tuesday, giving up five runs (four earned) on eight hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Padres.

Burnett (8-17) gave up a pair of runs in the first inning Tuesday, but the offense carried him to a 3-2 lead heading into the sixth inning, where the starter served up a two-run home run and an RBI single to fall behind for good. It's the first time in his last eight starts Burnett has been unable to complete six innings. He owns a 4.40 ERA and 180:87 K:BB ratio in 202 2/3 innings going into Sunday's scheduled start against the A's.


Steve Tolleson returns to action late Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:12 am ET) Blue Jays infielder Steve Tolleson went 0 for 1 and played third base in his team's 8-2 loss to the Orioles Tuesday.

Tolleson was not in the starting lineup Tuesday after suffering a wrist injury Monday, but he came in as a pinch hitter, struck out and stayed in to play third base. He has hit .239/.299/.358 with three home runs, 14 RBI and three stolen bases in 159 at-bats.

(1:05 am ET) Rangers closer Neftali Feliz picked up his 10th save Tuesday, tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning in his team's 6-3 victory over the A's.

Feliz needed just nine pitches to turn in his third straight perfect inning and eight straight scoreless appearance. He's averaged just 10 pitches over his last three outings while allowing no hits or walks. Feliz owns a 2.28 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:02 am ET) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch earned a win Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and two walks in six innings while striking out just one in his team's 6-3 victory over the A's.

Tepesch (5-10) saw the A's score a pair of runs in the fourth inning right after the offense had given him a 3-0 lead. After the Rangers tacked on three more runs in the fifth, the starter served up a harmless solo home run in the sixth. Tepesch owns a 4.47 ERA and 51:38 K:BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Angels Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:02 am ET) Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir took a loss Tuesday, allowing six runs (four earned) on nine hits and one walk in 4 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 6-3 defeat against the Rangers.

Kazmir (14-9) is now 0-4 in his last five starts, though he did a solid job in his previous two outings before throwing up a clunker Tuesday. He served up a two-run blast during a three-run fourth inning before the Rangers scored three more in the fifth inning to put the A's into a hole they couldn't escape. Kazmir owns a 3.44 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 150:49 K:BB ratio in 178 innings. He's scheduled to face the Phillies Sunday.
