2013 Draft Prep: 12-team, H2H keeper league draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

You asked, and we delivered.

Actually, you didn't specifically ask for a keeper mock draft. You hammered us on Twitter, e-mail and even in person with specific keeper queries:

Here are 12 players. Which five should I keep?

I am keeping Trout, Cabrera and Verlander. Which of the following eight players should I keep as my fourth?

I have four keeper spots for these 23 players. [Insert insane keeper loophole involving a minimum number of hitters that must be kept]. Which do you like?

We figured with all these questions, the time had come to just do a keeper mock. So we took a dormant league from last year -- with rosters still loaded -- and had each of our owners pick three keepers. Because we're suckers for semantics and loopholes here at CBSSports.com, we allowed teams to keep fewer than three if lady luck had dealt them a raw hand, meaning that if a team kept only two players, they'd be able to draft from all the unkept players in the third round (whereas the teams keeping three would have their first three rounds used for keepers).

What can you take from this draft? Obviously, a sense of who we like as keepers in a real-world setting. The first three rounds were basically 36 keepers from an actual league, with a couple minor exceptions. But you also get a full head-to-head mock from our analysts and writers, as well as an idea of which players to consider in a keeper format, as well as when to start considering them (and not focus entirely on 2013).

The league consists of ...

1. Ed Gauna, Fantasy Writer
2. Igor Mello, Fantasy Writer
3. Peter Madden, Editorial Director, Fantasy Sports
4. Nando Di Fino, Senior Fantasy Writer
5. Adam Aizer, Fantasy Video/Podcast Host
6. Scott White , Senior Fantasy Writer
7. Jeff Lippman, Fantasy Writer
8. Chris Towers, Fantasy Writer
9. Jeff Tobin, Associate Managing Editor, Fantasy Sports
10. Chris Cwik, CBSSports.com MLB Blogger
11. Al Melchior, Data Analyst
12. Bill Passonno, Fantasy Writer

Some quick observations on the draft:

• Key prospects taken included: Shelby Miller in the 14th round, Wil Myers and Trevor Bauer in the 17th round, Jurickson Profar in the 19th round, Jedd Gyorko and Leonys Martin in the 20th round and Bruce Rondon and Oscar Taveras in the 21st round. By and large, the owners in this mock focused on winning in 2013, opting to look at prospect gambles after starting lineups were filled.

Bryce Harper went with the fourth pick of the fourth round. Stephen Strasburg went with the first pick of the fourth round. This was, essentially, the first full round of drafting after keepers were added to rosters.

Mark Teixeira was taken about 20 minutes before news of his wrist injury came to light.

Aroldis Chapman may turn out to be a steal with the 11th pick of the sixth round.

• An injured Curtis Granderson slipped to the third pick of the seventh round. He could be a nice target in keeper formats, as he was being taken late in the first round in some early mocks.

Editor's Note: The players with an asterisk in the results below represent those each team kept.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez keeps hot streak going with three-hit game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:04 pm ET) Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez continued his offensive surge Thursday against the Brewers with three more hits -- all singles -- in five at-bats. He had one run, one walk and two strikeouts.

Hernandez pushed his hitting streak to seven games Thursday, but he has been on a nice roll offensively for a few weeks. Since June 10, he is batting .371 with a .471 slugging percentage and .900 OPS in his last 18 games. He has one triple, five doubles, eight RBI, 14 runs, six walks, 14 strikeouts and eight stolen bases in that span.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:54 am ET) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias totaled two hits, including his seventh double, in three at-bats Thursday against the Pirates. He had one run, one walk and one strikeout in the 8-4 loss.

Iglesias has totaled 17 multihit games in 67 appearances. He is batting .325 with two doubles, four RBI, six walks, five runs, 10 strikeouts and two stolen bases in his last 22 games.


Twins place OF Shane Robinson on family emergency list
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:54 am ET) Twins outfielder Shane Robinson has been placed on the family emergency list, per MLB.com.

Robinson has played sparingly, particularly in recent weeks. He has started just three of the team's last 15 games and owns a slash line of .250/.303/.315 on the year.


Twins OF Aaron Hicks activated off DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) Outfielder Aaron Hicks has been activated off the disabled list by the Twins, MLB.com has reported.

Hicks, who has been sidelined for three weeks with a forearm strain, returns with a mediocre slash line of .247/.293/.301.


Taylor's recall won't change Miller's status as M's starting shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:37 am ET) Although Chris Taylor started at shortstop Thursday immediately following his recall from the minors, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Brad Miller will remain the starting shortstop, per MLB.com.

"Brad is in a pretty good groove right now," McClendon said. "There's still a lot of room for improvement, but he is improving every day. He has his moments [defensively], but most of the time it's just a mechanical thing where he doesn't move through the ball or he stands straight up. I would say the last 12-15 days, he's been a lot better at that."

Taylor will serve as a backup middle infielder and could get some playing time at other positions as well.

"It's still a progression, but I'm feeling a lot more comfortable and a lot better [at the plate]," Taylor said. "It was good to go down there and take some of the pressure off. I was able to stop pressing and just worry about going out there and having some fun again. I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm ready to go."


Cubs SS Starlin Castro catching break Friday against Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:34 am ET) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has had successive multi-hit games for the first time in two weeks, but a third one is quite unlikely. He is on the bench for the Friday afternoon game against visiting Miami.

Castro has started all but two games at shortstop this season, but he has been fairly unproductive after a bounce-back season in 2014. He owns a slash line of .263/.298/.341 with just 26 runs scored as midseason approaches.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
