2014 Draft Prep: 12-team Roto mock (2/6)

  •  

Our latest mock draft -- a 12-team mixed 5x5 Rotisserie affair -- started off predictably enough, with Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera, Paul Goldschmidt and Andrew McCutchen being taken with the opening picks. It didn't take long for things to get interesting, though. The lack of "sure things" even in the early rounds created conundrums for owners that resulted in some surprising picks.

Owners saw fit to gamble first-round picks on post-suspension Ryan Braun (seventh overall), injury-risk Carlos Gonzalez (eighth overall), regression candidate Chris Davis (ninth overall), inconsistent Hanley Ramirez (10th overall) and Bryce Harper (11th overall), who has elite potential but has yet to perform at an elite level. In fact, the early pick used on Harper set a trend of aggressive pursuit of young talent, as Yasiel Puig went in the second round, Jose Fernandez and Jean Segura were taken in the third round and Billy Hamilton went off the board in the fifth round.

Not every risky player got the benefit of the doubt. Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Bautista, neither of whom has played as many as 125 games in either of the last two seasons, weren't nabbed until the third round, being taken after steadier but less exciting types like Adam Jones, Freddie Freeman, Jason Kipnis and Dustin Pedroia. Due to his lingering ankle injury, Matt Kemp was not taken until the fourth round, even later than Matt Carpenter and Ian Desmond.

Throughout the first nine rounds, a steady stream of starting pitchers were being taken, as owners filled out their No. 1 and 2 starter slots, largely with the usual suspects. As has been the case in earlier mocks this offseason, once owners were considering candidates for their No. 3 slot, the bell to signal the run on young, high-upside starters was rung. The 10th-round selection of Gerrit Cole started this draft's run, and Michael Wacha, Tony Cingrani, Sonny Gray and Danny Salazar were all gone within the next 24 picks. Once that spree ended, owners were so uninspired about the remaining starting pitchers that only two were taken over the next 30 selections.

The first reliever was taken in the sixth round, though it wasn't the one who usually gets the closer run going. It was Aroldis Chapman, not Craig Kimbrel, who went first among relievers, but once Kimbrel was taken in the eighth round, the action on closers started to pick up, with Kenley Jansen, Greg Holland and Trevor Rosenthal getting claimed over the following 11 picks. If you are expecting closers like Koji Uehara, Sergio Romo and Glen Perkins to be roughly as valuable as the top five relievers who were taken here, and if this mock was any indication of how your draft might unfold, waiting to draft one of them is a strategy that could pay off. Only Uehara was taken during the span between the early ninth round and the late 12th round.

Interested in one of the international free agents set to debut this year, but not sure how to value them in Roto? In this draft, Masahiro Tanaka was a 12th round pick, while Jose Abreu went in the 13th round and Alexander Guerrero and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez were last-round selections.

These are the owners who toiled in the draft room, making all of this happen.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Matt Shoemaker to miss next scheduled start
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:28 pm ET) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker will miss Saturday's scheduled start due to a strained oblique, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Shoemaker described the strain as "very mild," but the team will move ahead cautiously. He could make one more regular-season start if he recovers well enough over the next several days.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:13 pm ET) Padres clsoer Joaquin Benoit will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could return to action as early as Friday, U-T San Diego reports.

Benoit has been out since Aug. 26 while recovering from a shoulder injury. He owns a 1.58 ERA and 60:14 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.


Nick Castellanos scratched from lineup with foot issue
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:09 pm ET) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos was a late scratch from Tuesday's starting lineup due to left foot soreness, the team announced.

Castellanos fouled a ball off his left foot in Monday's game, and the team has decided to let him rest the injured foot Tuesday rather than risk further injury. The third baseman has hit .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 496 at-bats.


Matt Shoemaker has 'very mild' left oblique strain
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:07 pm ET) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker is dealing with a "very mild" left oblique strain, the Orange County Register reports.

Shoemaker underwent an MRI Tuesday to determine the cause of the discomfort on his left side. He's day-to-day and questionable to make his next scheduled start Saturday.


Steve Johnson to undergo shoulder surgery
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:02 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Steve Johnson will undergo surgery next Wednesday to remove a large bone spur behind his right shoulder, Comcast SportsNet Baltimore reports.

"It was either wait it out or stretch it out or get surgery and get it removed. It shouldn’t be a long recovery, but I think this is the best way to go," Johnson said.

Johnson has spent the season in the minors, posting a 6.23 ERA in 47 2/3 innings at three different levels, with most of his action coming with Triple-A Norfolk.


Eric Hosmer showing some life again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:59 pm ET) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Monday against the White Sox, which was enough to earn him a mention in my latest blog post chronicling the major happenings in Monday's games.

It doesn't seem like much on its own, but with that performance, he's now batting .321 (9 for 28) with two homers and a 1.049 OPS in his last eight games. Whoop-ti-do.

After the way his season has gone, he'd have to do something Herculean to convince us to draft him as a top 10 first baseman again next year. I'm talking a Ryan Zimmerman-in-2013-type correction so complete that we forget he was having a down year before it, as in a .380 batting average or so and half a dozen home runs. Real craziness.

But as we watch it all unfold, I think it's worth reminding everyone he's only 24. We probably have at least another five years of overreacting to every hot streak, wondering if it's a harbinger of more. And I remain convinced, given his pedigree and those stretches every other year when he appears oh so studly, that one day it will be.

Here's hoping he doesn't have that Herculean finish so we can get him for dirt cheap next year.


Geovany Soto available off bench Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:51 pm ET) Athletics catcher Geovany Soto is available off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

"I'm good to go," Soto said Tuesday.

Soto hasn't played since leaving Friday's game due to back spasms. He has hit .211/.250/.316 in 57 at-bats.


Ryan Raburn heading for MRI on injured knee
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:47 pm ET) Indians outfielder Ryan Raburn is heading back to Cleveland to have an MRI done on his injured knee, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Raburn told his manager that he's feeling better, but depending on what the test uncovers, he could be shut down for the remainder of the season. He has hit .200/.250/.297 with four home runs and 22 RBI in 195 at-bats.
