Daily Rankings Notes 1/22
-Kenley Jansen being drafted ahead of League in NFBC.
-Fujikawa had 220 saves and 12 K/9, but very questionable. Carlos Marmol may be OK.
-We still like Frieri over Madson-surgery return–check CIA.
–Adrian Beltre–bet on BABIP down plus AB down in 2013.
–Joe Blanton –SLEEPER- Angels Stadium suppresses HR by 20% and much better D in LAA
Chris Tillman–By the end of the season, he was back averaging 91.0-92.0 miles per hour. He averaged 93.0-94.0 in his second and third starts-hat tip to @MikePodhorzer at fangraphs.com
-Elvis Andrus-look for big SB rebound and only 24.
Alex Avila-2011 outlier-ignore-2010 is the real him. Don’t split the difference.
Brandon Belt-still very iffy if BABIP regresses-weak K/BB. Resist the hype.
Roger Bernadina-50 pt difference in xBA and BA-regress.
If there is one guy who might jump into first round–Jay Bruce. Only 26 and only needs small improvement.
