Middle Infield Sleepers

Postby Hebrew Hammer » Sun Feb 24, 2013 11:10 pm

Looking for some guys you can pay $5 or less for for the MI slot that will help with a little bit of everything. Do not include Josh Rutledge on this list.

The best guys I can come up with are Howard Kendrick and Dustin Ackley. Got any other names?

I'll watch Drew in spring. Like the park change, the year removed from injury, the reports out of camp have been positive.

I think Segura is worth getting but don't reach.

I like Ackley. I like some of the peripherals.

I'll keep an eye on Jerk-O and see if he breaks camp with the big club Padres.

I like Zack Cosart as a possibe post-hype guy.

I think Asdrubal is being slightly though not super undervalued in drafts right now.

I like what I'm hearing anout Utley. I'd like him particularly in a shallow league where there are some good short term replacement options.

I like Mark Ellis in NL only formats.

I like Bonifacio, good SAGNOF and looks like he might play all over the field.

Weeks and Jeter, although I am not sure about the price. Shouldn't be much more than Kendrick or Scutaro based on what I have seen.

Hard to get behind Johnson. Has hit .225 or lower in 3 of the last 4 seasons. Strikes out 27% of the time. Going from a very good hitters park where he had everyday at bats to a platoon/utility situation in a much worse hitters park. I actually like the guy and would love to see him have a nice year, but it's tough to see any signs in the numbers.

What are you seeing that you like?
