Injured in 2005, So Are Now Undervalued

Postby Honus » Sat Jan 28, 2006 7:34 pm

Which players had lingering injuries last year or spent a significant amount of time on the DL are now healthy and, because of their bad luck last year, will be forgotten by some and undervalued by others? Thanks for the input.

Cameron was having a good year before he got injured. But now he's in SD, so I'm not really sure what to make of him. I mean, he'll certainly be valued pretty low now, but by the same token, he's going to lose a good bit of his value due to the new park (HR) and becuase leg injuries tend to make it more difficult stealing bases.

Both Javy Lopez and Ryan Freel barely made it over 100 games last year. Schilling is also another guy who spent a few days on teh DL. I'm not sure how "undervalued" they are, but you could potentially get some "steals".

Berkman missed about 30 games, so his stats from last year are deflated somewhat. I could see him having a very nice year and put up numbers very similar to Hafner.

Tori Hunter is a guy that was having a good year in all categories other than average. 23 steals in 98 games is pretty nice.

I'm not sure I'd jump on the Freel train just yet. Is he even going to be starting for Cinci this year?

I'm not a big stats guy as most people know, however, I do believe in park effects. I don't have numbers in front of me, but I know someone else does, I am pretty sure that Shea Stadium heavily favors pitchers. SD may be the worst, but I think Shea isn't far behind.

Ben Sheets seems to be undervalued a little bit, but i wouldn't count on getting him at very much of a discount.

Well, this guy is a two parter; he was injured and had a very down year (compared to what was expected): Oliver Perez. I saw him go extremely early last year and was really disappointing.

If you recall, last year was the first time he didn't play winter ball and had troubles early on in the season.

This year he's playing winter ball again and has been reported as looking really good.
