June Outfielder Rankings

Monday, June 02, 2014


Here are the June Rankings. Players are ranked for the remainder of the season based on how I believe they’ll perform in 5x5 leagues. Players are also listed at the positions where they’re most valuable, so if you don’t see that third baseman you’re looking for, he’s probably listed at second or short.

  • Given my past writings, it should come as no surprise that I still have Polanco ahead of Taveras, even though the latter got the first callup. Polanco should follow in a week or two, and it looks like he’s being groomed to become the Pirates’ leadoff hitter. He has two big advantages over Taveras as a fantasy prospect. First, he can steal bases, with 14 in Triple-A so far this year (including three in his last two games). Second, he doesn’t have competition for at-bats like Matt Adams (currently on the shelf), Peter Bourjos and Jon Jay. Taveras could still end up returning to Triple-A in June if things go badly the next two weeks. I don’t expect they will, but it’s a possibility.

 

  • Cuddyer is a couple of spots higher than he’d otherwise be because of the likelihood that he’s about to gain third-base eligibility in most formats. And with Cuddyer at third base, Dickerson has moved up a few spots, though he’s not nearly as high as he’d be if it looked like he’d play regularly after Nolan Arenado returns.

 

  • I was tempted to leave Heisey in the 60s now that the Reds have finally realized that Ludwick isn’t a regular, but I’m still not sure how much of a chance he’s going to get. After all, as much as I like his fantasy potential, it’s not like he figures to be all that valuable in actual baseball. Given the Reds’ infatuation with Skip Schumaker, Heisey comes in at No. 82 for now.
