The Sportz Nutt Preps You For Your Fantasy Baseball Draft

Share Button

Fantasy baseball is right around the corner…..woohoo, cinesportstalk league……and with it comes the speculation of who will do what? Last season, we had Aaron Judge come out of nowhere and demolish any doubt people had of his abilities. This year, everyone is looking for the next big thing…..with that, I present some ups and downs. To be an “up” the player has to be trending in the right direction with me believing his 2018 will be better than 2017. To be a “down” it’s the complete opposite. If a star isn’t listed here, then you can draft with confidence, as he is around the same area where he was or where he should be. Here you go guys, grab a pen and paper and enjoy:


Ups – Robinson Chirinos, Wilson Ramos, Auston Barnes
Downs – Brian McCann, Mike Zunino


Ups – Joey Votto, Miguel Cabrera, Joey Gallo, Rhys Hoskins, Anthony Rizzo
Downs – Wil Myers, Eric Hosmer, Justin Smoak


Ups – Jonathan Schoop, Rougned Odor, Ozzie Albies
Downs – DJ LeMahieu, Daniel Murphy, Marwin Gonzalez


Ups – Alex Bregman, Josh Donaldson, Nicholas Castellanos
Downs – Adrian Beltre, Jake Lamb, Kyle Seager


Ups – Xander Bogaerts, Orlando Arcia, Trea Turner
