2014 Draft Prep: 12-team mixed Rotisserie draft

  •  

With opening night less than two weeks away, it's time for Fantasy to get real.

After conducting several mock drafts in a variety of formats, our Fantasy staff finally settled down to have our first mixed league Rotisserie draft that will count. We will be playing out this 12 -team 5x5 league, and as compared to our earlier drafts, we were armed with a little more information than we have had in recent weeks.

Not all news has been good news, though. The recent spate of pitcher injuries has rendered several hurlers with little to no Fantasy value, and at least based on this draft, it created greater urgency for owners to fill their SP slots. With Jarrod Parker and Kris Medlen set to miss the 2014 season, and Patrick Corbin, Brandon Beachy and A.J. Griffin due to miss at least a meaty chunk of time, owners sped up their pursuit of pitching. No. 1 starters actually went at a similarly casual pace to that of our most recent mixed Rotisserie mock, but the first genuine run on starting pitchers -- focused on No. 2 and 3 starters -- occurred in Round 9 of this draft, as compared to Round 11 last time around. Gio Gonzalez, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb and Tony Cingrani were among the starters who were drafted at least a round earlier.

Our owners also had more information about some of the riskier early-to-mid-round options, and the results for these players were mixed. The passage of time -- and a solid early spring performance -- has been kind to Masahiro Tanaka, who was taken in Round 8 in this draft, which was four rounds earlier than last time. Unlike Tanaka, Billy Hamilton has at least had his proverbial cup of coffee in the big leagues, but owners have apparently looked to his strong spring stats for reassurance, and he launched from Round 7 to Round 6.

Mike Moustakas has gained even more popularity, likely due to his red-hot start in the Cactus League, as he soared from Round 23 to Round 18. Josh Hamilton received a more modest boost, moving up from Round 8 to Round 7, possibly just because he finally returned from his calf injury. Alex Wood has not only helped his own cause by dominating the Grapefruit League, but his once-questionable job security now appears to be solid, given the injuries to Medlen (elbow, Tommy John surgery) and Beachy (forearm). He went from being undrafted to being taken in Round 15.

On the negative side, Matt Kemp's struggles and protracted recovery from ankle surgery may have contributed to his drop from Round 3 to Round 5. So far, Jose Abreu hasn't shown much in the way of power or an on-base percentage, and his limited sample of less-than-impressive at-bats could be responsible for his dip from Round 8 to Round 10.

Every draft is different, so of course, your results may vary. For these 12 owners, though, an actual play-it-out draft unfolded a little differently than the practice ones. (And future drafts won't be the same either. You will be missed, Nando Di Fino. Best of luck to you, wherever the Gattis Routes and Gyorko Trains of life take you.)

Diamondbacks' Brad Ziegler to face hitters soon
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:33 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler will face hitters soon, according to FoxSports.com.

Ziegler had microfracture surgery in September, and is working his way back. He threw a bullpen session on Friday, and should face hitters pretty soon. The 35-year-old is expected to open the year in the bullpen if healthy. 

Ziegler posted a 3.49 ERA over 67 innings last season. 


Yankees' Carlos Beltran says his elbow feels fine
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:23 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran said his elbow felt fine after Friday's game, according to the Journal News.

Beltran went 0-2 with a walk during the game, but didn't wear a brace on his arm. He said it's now just a matter of getting his timing down before the regular season. The 37-year-old is expected to open the season as a starter in the outfield.

Beltran hit .233/.301/.402 over 403 at-bats last season. 


Pirates' Jameson Taillon to face hitters next week
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:50 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon will face hitters next week, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Taillon underwent Tommy John surgery last April, but is working his way back. Taillon tossed a 30 pitch bullpen session on Friday. He's expected to do it again on Tuesday. If his Tuesday session goes well, Taillon will throw live batting practice on Friday.

Taillon said he's feeling pretty good about his progress. "I'm feeling really strong, throwing the ball cleaner than I ever have," Taillon said. "Everything has been feeling really good. The elbow has been responding really well."

Taillon is expected to open the season in the minors, but could be promoted to the majors if he gets off to a strong start. 


Brewers' Adam Lind dealing with back injury
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:23 pm ET) Brewers first baseman Adam Lind is dealing with a back injury, according to MLB.com.

Lind's back flared up while taking grounders on Thursday. He was scratched from Friday's game, and is considered day-to-day. Lind was acquired by the club during the offseason, and is expected to see significant time at first base.

The 31-year-old Lind hit .321/.381/.479 over 290 at-bats last season. 


Report: Mets' Daniel Murphy dealing with bruised hand
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:18 pm ET) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy is dealing with a bruised right hand, according to ESPN.

X-rays reportedly came back "OK," and Murphy shouldn't miss much time. Murphy was hit in the hand during Friday's game against the Tigers. He stayed in the game to run the bases, but was replaced at the start of the next inning. 

The 29-year-old Murphy hit .289/.332/.403 over 596 at-bats last season. 


Diamondbacks' Chris Owings takes batting practice on Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:10 pm ET) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings was able to take batting practice on Friday, according to MLB.com.

Owings is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, and has been limited early in camp. Manager Chip Hale said he was happy with Owings progress, and noted it was a big day for the infielder.

"Everything he's done has been right on time," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "We've slowed him down, because it's important that that swing is right. This was a huge day for him."

Owings will likely go through another round of BP before he's ready for game action. The team may also opt to give him at-bats in minor-league games before using him during actual spring training games.

The 23-year-old Owings hit .261/.300/.406 over 310 at-bats last season. He's expected to open the year as the team's starting shortstop. 


Angels' Matt Lindstrom feeling 100 percent this spring
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:03 pm ET) Angels reliever Matt Lindstrom is feeling pretty good after having ankle surgery last season, according to the Los Angeles Times

Lindstrom struggled with oblique and ankle injuries last season, but has drawn some rave reviews during camp. "Right now, his stuff is very similar to when he was throwing the ball well early last year," Manager Mike Scioscia said. "That's exciting. This guy has closer's stuff. It's just a matter of how consistent he is and if he can keep it going."

Lindstrom admitted he came back from ankle surgery too soon last year, and it impacted his numbers. He was able to rehab the injury during the offseason, though, and feels much better now. "I can tell the ball is coming out of my hand better, the way it's supposed to," Lindstrom said. "It wasn't right last year, but now, I don't have any reservations. I can concentrate on getting people out."

The 35-year-old posted a 5.03 ERA over 34 innings last season. He's competing for a role in the Angels bullpen this spring. 


Orioles sign Elih Villanueva to a minor-league deal
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:54 pm ET) The Orioles have signed pitcher Elih Villanueva to a minor-league deal, according to MLB.com.

Villanueva has played in just one game in the majors. He gave up eight runs over three innings in a start for the Marlins back in 2011. Villanueva had a strong showing in the Dominican League, leading the circuit with a 2.63 ERA.


Reds' Stephenson hoping to make an impact this season
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:49 pm ET) Reds pitcher Robert Stephenson is hoping to make an impact in the majors this season, according to MLB.com.

Stephenson may not open the year in the majors, but is hoping he arrives sooner rather than later. "My goal by the end of the year is to be in Cincinnati," Stephenson said. "It's your dream growing up as a kid. It would be awesome to be there but at the same time, I want to get to a point where I deserve to be there and belong there."

Stephenson is considered the team's top prospect. He dealt with shoulder issues earlier in camp, but is cleared for action now. 

Manager Bryan Price said Stephenson has a few things to work on, but seemed optimistic about his long-term outlook. With Robert, it's command -- not necessarily throwing strikes, but the quality of the strikes," Price said.

The 22-year-old should start the year in the minors, but could earn a promotion based on how well he pitches.


Mariners' Chris Taylor homers, triples on Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:42 pm ET) Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor hit a home run and tripled on Friday against the Dodgers.

Taylor came into camp competing for the team's shortstop position with Brad Miller. While Miller likely has the upper hand, he's coming off a down season. Taylor, on the other hand, played well in the minors in 2014, and hit .287 in a brief major-league debut. It's believed whoever loses out on the starting role will be sent to the minors.
