Fantasy Baseball Free Agent Pool – Speed Demons

Apr 28, 2009


Here are some reasonably available SB threats.

Dexter Fowler, Colorado Rockies - Fowler will be jumping of the shelves after his five SB performance last night.  He had six in the last week.  The thing is, he’s hitting too.  He was 7 for 19 (.368) last week with 7 Runs.  He is hitting .302 on the season.  He is owned in 16.5% of ESPN and 48% of Yahoo leagues.

Josh Anderson, Detroit Tigers - Anderson came over in a trade just before the season kicked off.  He hasn’t disappointed by hitting .364 on the young season.  Last week he was a demon on the basepaths picking up four SBs.  He went 6 for 16 (.375) and scored four Runs.  He is owned in 5.6% of ESPN and 14% of Yahoo leagues.

Other reasonably available guys with two SBs last week:
Ryan Spilbroughs – 10.6% ESPN, 17% Yahoo – Solid pickup, but won’t steal much
Justin Maxwell – Less than 1% ESPN & Yahoo – Not worth picking up
Brett Gardner – 12.1% ESPN, 16% Yahoo – Can’t hit
Alexi Casilla – 1.7% ESPN, 9% Yahoo – Isn’t hitting
Michael Bourn – 8.6% ESPN, 21% Yahoo – Finally hitting, worth adding
Emmanuel Burris – 2.4% ESPN, 5% Yahoo – Isn’t hitting
Eric Byrnes – 39.3% ESPN, 16% Yahoo – Finally hitting
