Are we sure Ryu is starting? I know they shelled out a lot of money for him too but from what I've read he isn't exactly a sure thing.


MLBDEPTHCHARTS.com projects Ryu as the #4 SP.

The Dodgers view him as a SP.

I'm interested in Pineda, but he's probably going to go too high for me. Baker moving to the NL is intriguing.

Tsuyoshi Wada is another deep sleeper. Before his injury last year, a lot of forecasters liked him better than Wei-Yin Chen.

Fangraphs had something today about a whole bunch of injured SPs (and other players) as well as their ETA.

I don't think that he will be healthy until mid july/august...

In leagues that have multiple DL spots, I'll be heavily investing in Luebke, Duffy, Pineda, Feliz, Beachy.

I actually really liked Dillon Gee last season. He was showing great plate discipline stats and the ERA was bound to come around eventually, and it wasn't even that bad to begin with (4.10 ERA). If he can come back healthy he'd definitely be on my radar.


I really like Gee as a sleeper, had a great k/9 last season.

That is a helpful list. I forgot about Drabek and Hutchison. A sleeper who isn't injured would be Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, who could be headed this way in 2014.
