Under the Radar Good OPS and K/9 Players?

Postby Oatsdad » Sun Mar 22, 2009 11:47 am

My H2H league includes both OPS and K/9. Any thoughts who some unusual suspects in those categories would be?

Not really under the radar per se, but Milton Bradley comes to mind given that he led the AL in OPS last year and because of his injuries isn't being drafted too high.
In the same mold there is JD Drew too.

Personally I dont mind getting a good 4th OF to sub in for guys like that weeks at a time, their draft positions reflect their missed time.

Milton Bradley is an excellent choice. Wrigley Field is an excellent hitter's park with the wind blowing out, and Bradley will probably hit 3rd, 4th, or 5th in that lineup. Also he's playing on the best offense in the National League, so he should see plenty of good pitches.

Endy Chavez is under the radar? You'd be lucky to get him in the 5th round.

How far under the radar are we talking?

Erik Bedard had a ridiculous K/9 in 2007 and is going fairly low due to last year's injury woes.

Clayton Kershaw had 100 K in 107 IP last season and given his upside, he could be a bargain in a league like yours.

Wandy Rodriguez is being drafted very low for a guy who struck out 131 in 137.1 IP last season.

Jonathan Sanchez struck 157 in 158 IP last season and can be had for cheap. His other statistics are painful though.

If you want to go WAY under the radar... Rich Hill, Ian Snell and Jeremy Bonderman have all had pretty good K/9 rates at one time, but had some awful years recently.
