Gregg Zaun will eat innings while waiting for Milwaukee prospects to develop. Vet's value here will come in two-catcher NL leagues, where he could approach double-digit homers if he logs 400 or so at-bats. He'll be a batting average bane.


Prince Fielder, 1B, Milwaukee Brewers

Already elite walk, flyball, HR/FB rates exploded. Increased patience, as well. Small wrench comes in lucky BABIP with low line-drive rate. Prince Fielder's command of the strike zone means his clip won't hurt you, though. Forty homers and top-10 mixed value near certainties during his prime years.

Scorching start derailed by another injury - medical chart slices Rickie Weeks' price. Flyball, line-drive spikes might be outdone by downward-trending batting eye, but you pay for power-steals combo, not batting average. Can tab middle-infield price on him in mixed leagues; worth an extra dollar for boom potential, but make sure you employ a backup plan, especially in NLs.

Casey McGehee has to prove he's more than a Quad-A player. He hinted at 20-homer power in the minors, but he was fortunate in the bigs. He hadn't shown farm evidence of his high flyball rate. His BABIP will be vulnerable to normalization. His hard contact gives hope he can sustain some success. Competition from Mat Gamel clouds McGehee's value, but his dual eligibility will increase urgency for an NL selection; beware the risks.

Mat Gamel's stone glove and platoon tendency are holding him back. He didn't find a groove in spotty playing time last season. Putrid batting eye means he'll probably need luck to top .260 batting average. He'll also start the year on the sidelines and when he returns will at best platoon with Casey McGehee. Gamel is worth having for a low-end price in NL leagues as a potential corner infield solution. Note the word "potential."

More known for glove, Escobar stuck with groundball game - plus for a speedster. Alcides Escobar worked on patience in Venezuelan winter ball and has slowly improving batting eye. Hesitant to thieve upon call-up, but might work itself out as season goes on. Productive steals filler in late mixed rounds.

Still fooled by lefties, but the Brewers essentially handing speedster the center-field job; coaches want to focus on steals more this year. Poor batting eye doesn't predict much batting average growth, but Carlos Gomez was controlling strike zone better last year. You can pay late-round prices for his swipes potential, but suppress expectations of growth elsewhere.

Foot injury and appendicitis halted Corey Hart's midseason progress. Coaches wanted more patience from 20-20 threat but blamed that for his decreased power. Expect him to resume hacking; downward HR/FB trend worrisome but fixable with health and aggressiveness. Many forgetting about this late-round profit opportunity.

Inflated BABIP not entirely unfounded; Ryan Braun increased line drives and groundballs. Consistent 30-homer bat also locking in stolen bases; not bad for first-round staple. Live with the hacks; increasing walks temper their pain. Bona fide stud.

Lucky BABIP and strand rate huge targets for correction. Dominance has dropped in each of last two years, returning to Randy Wolf's career norms. Moves to more favorable homer park, making flyball jump scarier. Control improvement was nice, but his margin for error is thin with that reliance. A non-upside pick but a decent settle option to round out deep staffs.

Yovani Gallardo workload risk hangs over his many improvements. Groundball increase came with increased use of curveball, and dominance stayed at elite levels throughout season. Brewers acted fast in shutting him down when he became fatigued, so he should be prepared for a full year. He could pass as a low-level ace if you acknowledge the potential burnout.

Vet knows how to pitch, but strand and homer rates ripe for normalization, even with increased groundball pattern and history of fastball-changeup brilliance. Must worry about Trevor Hoffman's location (bread and butter) slipping as he ages. Don't make him your top mixed closer - anything less will probably do the trick; you're safely acknowledging his drop-off potential that way.
