Fantasy Baseball Free Agent Pool – Speed Demons
Some of the noted Base Stealers are off to slow starts in that category. Jose Reyes, Willy Taveras, Alex Rios, Carl Crawford, Juan Pierre (not getting ABs), and Matt Kemp have just one. Hanley Ramirez, Michael Bourn, Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino have yet to steal a base. If you were relying on these players to help win the SB category, you are in danger of falling behind.
Have no fear. First of all, it’s early. The SBs will come. If you just can’t wait for that to happen, I have compiled a list of reasonably available SB threats.
Nyjer Morgan – Morgan is off to an impressive start in most categories. He is tied for third in the league with three SBs. He is also hitting .387 with 5 Runs and 7 RBI. He is owned in just 16.2% of ESPN and 37% of Yahoo leagues.
Endy Chavez - Chavez is also helping out in multiple categories. He has three SBs so far and is hitting .379 with 4 Runs and 4 RBI. He is owned in just 6.7% of ESPN and 11% of Yahoo leagues.
Akinori Iwamura - Iwamura is attractive not only because of his 3 SBs, but his.385 average with 6 Runs and 4 RBI. Plus, he’s a Second Baseman so his lack of power won’t hinder your team. He is owned in 12.9% of ESPN and 31% of Yahoo leagues.
