Dr. Roto’s Fantasy Baseball Gut Feelings

I have three final drafts this weekend before the season starts. Here are some last minute thoughts I have on certain players.

Pablo Sandoval: The Sox can’t afford NOT to trade him. Look for a deal to be made sometime soon, as $75 million for a benched Panda is a lot of bamboo.

Joc Pederson: I agree completely with Shawn Childs—Joc is a steal in all leagues. Expect a 20/30 type of season.

Felix Hernandez: Don’t overspend on King Felix. I have a feeling he is more human than ever in 2016.

Matt Wieters: I have a sinking sensation that Wieters will be on the DL come July.

Hector Olivera: Love his versatility. Watch him hit for a bit more power than expected.

Brandon Phillips: With Jose Peraza breathing down his neck, I think Phillips is traded by June 15.

Francisco Lindor: This kid is a future star. Pay up at your drafts now for him.

Mike Moustakas: Sometimes it takes guys a few years to figure it out; I think Moose figures it out in 2016 and makes the All-Star team.

Kole Calhoun: People are down on him, but he will be a solid middle-round selection who can hit 25 HR.

Byron Buxton: I am a big fan, but don’t overspend. If he has a rough April, he could be spending time in the minors come May.

Yoenis Cespedes: Please be careful if you draft this guy. I know he is streaky, but I just cannot see him keeping it together all season. New York might be his ruination.

Chris Coughlin: No one will take him, but he is the type of player who might qualify all over the field and is useful in deeper leagues.

Cameron Rupp: Need a $1 catcher at the end of your draft? Rupp plays in a great park and should not have to worry about getting 400 at-bats this season.
