Fantasy Baseball Free Agent Pool – 2010 Speed Demons Vol. 3
Just because you’ve slipped behind in the Stolen Base category doesn’t mean you can’t catch up. Here are some reasonably available SB threats.
Corey Patterson, OF, Baltimore Orioles
Patterson should be on your short-list of players to add if you need speed. He’s hitting .288 with 4 SBs, 10 runs, 2 HRs, and 5 RBIs since May 12th. Corey is owned in 1.7 percent of ESPN and 9 percent of CBS leagues.
Will Venable, OF, San Diego Padres
There’s that name again. Over the past 15 days Venable has 4 SBs while hitting .265 with 6 runs and 5 RBIs. On the year he has 12 SBs, a .235 average, 24 runs, 4 HRs, and 17 RBIs. Will is owned in 13.3 percent of ESPN and 25 percent of CBS leagues.
Trevor Crowe, OF, Cleveland Indians
Since May 15th Crowe has 3 SBs while hitting .261 with 5 runs, 1 HR, and 7 RBIs. He’s owned in 0.9 percent of ESPN and 6 percent of CBS leagues.
Drew Stubbs, OF, Cincinnati Reds
You usually have to stomach a poor average with Stubbs, but he’s hitting .310 over the past 15 days. He has added 3 SBs, 4 runs, 3 HRs, and 9 RBIs. On the year he’s hitting .213 with 11 SBs, 22 runs, 5 HRs, and 21 RBIs. Drew is owned in 8.2 percent of ESPN and 38 percent of CBS leagues.
Everth Cabrera, SS, San Diego Padres
I had such high expectations for Cabrera, but he’s just not hitting. He hit .219 over the past 15 days (.212 for the year), though he did add 3 SBs and 4 runs. He has 7 SBs on the year with 8 runs and 11 RBIs. He needs to improve his .257 on-base percentage to become a factor. Everth is owned in 30 percent of ESPN and 27 percent of CBS leagues.
