The kid threw a no-hitter last year and had an ERA of under 3. Why is he going undrafted in most leagues? Is there something I don't know about?

Is anyone else sleeping on him, or are people just expecting a regression?

I've grabbed him in almost every league I'm in. I don't think he'll do as well as last year, but I don't think he should be undrafted. I also try to grab Scott Olsen with him.

i'm personally expecting a regression. i owned him last year and was very happy with him, but i don't expect those numbers this year.

and as a phillies fan I just hope that entire lineup goes through a sophomore slump.

tried to get them both in my auction keeper league yesterday but didn't leave enough money to outbid the other guys who were high on them. imo both will have good years and should be picked up in every league.

I grab Olsen in about the 17th round or later, I try to grab Anibal sometimes, but often I get caught up in other potential players.

I think he's wel worth a pick though, you can get him at the beack end of any draft, he gets decent K's, and as a 5th starter or bench starter you could do a lot worse. I certainly like his upside over guys like Mulder or Hudson who people seem to believe are on the comeback trail.

Well with Anibal... he is an injury risk. For both pitchers, they are playing for a poor team offensively (it will be tough for those guys to match last year's performance except for Cabrera) and also in the pen. I am a firm believer in taking the better pitcher on a poor team versus an average pitcher on a great team but still, I think both are going around where they should be. They do have a lot of potential though.

HE'S GONE UNDRAFTED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? WHAAAT!!?


every draft i've been in he goes in the 15-16th rounds... and i keep getting extremely pissed about not getting him.... in my last draft i picked him up in the 14th round just to make sure i get him.

look here http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b2/1172 and you'll see the experts didn't even draft him. one smart manager did pick him up after the draft though.

it does seem like many people are not buying many of the marlin's talented youngsters. i've seen uggla, olsen, sanchez all going way too late in drafts. willingham, jacobs, and johnson (hurt) i can see undrafted in shallow leagues, but the other 3 should be drafted. only one getting respect is h-ram.

Anibal Sanchez had an unrealistically low BABIP last year,
it would be very unlikely for it to remain so low.

But he seemed to be striking out more as the year went on,
which is a good sign.

he's worth a late pick,
but i wouldn't rely on him to be more than a 5th guy on my fantasy team. Definite upside, though.
