Who would you target as a middle-infield sleeper in a 12-14 team league?

Scott Sizemore had a atrocious spring and has been banished to the dungeons and cellars known as the bottom of the Tigers lineup

good list though I'm not very high on Barmes. I will be keeping an eye on EY this year though.

I'll add Orlando Cabrera, and Alberto Callaspo.

and I'm thinking Demi Moore as a MILF sleeper

Aybar is going to be a pretty good pick up for a middle to late round pick. I could see him as a 100 run 20 SB threat and he also has a good avg. He is young and leading off for a good team.

Ryan Raburn anyone?
I know his glove isn't great for 2B, but he did play 16 games there in 2008 for Detroit and 11 in 2007. If Sizemore can't cut it maybe Raburn gets some time there, along with the OF, 3B, and DH.

Ha. Thought the same thing.

Good list as well. I'd also add Mike Aviles to the list. He is having a tremendous spring and I'm expecting him to have SS, 2B, and possibly even 3B eligibility as well with Gordon and now Callaspo on the shelf.

Edit: Damn you Element. Beat me to the punch... :-b

it's possible he'd see some time there but most likely Santiago would pick up any 2B slack if Sizemore doesnt pan out.

also, i'm not expecting great R+RBI but i think he's got a chance to give 10-15 HR and 10-15 SB...depending on your MI needs in a deep league he's worth a flier

Prado, Kelly Johnson, and Sean Rodriguez, although less so than the first 2.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
