Who will be this year's Evereth Cabrera?

Postby crapshooter » Thu Feb 11, 2010 10:17 am

Cabrera was a Rule 5 pick last year that established himself as starter and future solid player. Are there any unknowns like that this year?

Alexi Casilla could have a Everth like year. He was possibly not making the Twins 25 man roster before ODawg signed and now it's even more unlikely. If he lands in the right situation he could have a .285 season with 20+ SB's.

But I don't really get this quest to find this year's Everth. Even with his SB's he was a fairly terrible fantasy player last year.

Another MI who will probably be undrafted is Ian Desmond. I think players like E-Cab emerge because it doesn't take much to put you into the middle of the pack of rosterable MI guys.

I like Michael Brantley as a Cabrera type player this year. If he gets the starting LF spot, and it looks like he is the front runner, he could steal 40 this season.

McGehee was about the same last year. There are always a few random rule 5 guys who luck into a good year.

I'm not sure you can really predict who it will be, it is a function of being in the right spot at the right time and getting off to a hot start.
