Rick Ankiel, OF, Kansas City Royals

by Tim Heaney on March 3, 2010 @ 00:00:00 PDT


Rick Ankiel's ineptitude versus lefties hurts his overall contribution and might cost him playing time. Ankiel's walk and contact rates tanked, too. Though his flyball growth might have been hidden below an abnormally low HR/FB, he's moving to a terrible park for homers. The dingers column is his best bet, and unfortunately that's in jeopardy. AL-only drafters should pay modestly if they need to fill out a five-outfielder lineup.
