Chris Nelson. Rockies 3B. sleeper?

Postby SpecialFNK » Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:59 pm

it looks like Chris Nelson will be the starting 3B for the Rockies this season.
would he be a good sleeper?
2B and 3B eligibility.
he is now the "magical" age of 27.
his 2nd half last year was good..
.344/.381/.500/.881/ 4 HR/ 27 R/ 30 RBI

he has had some good minor league seasons.

2010- 85/319 - .313/.376/.492/.868/ 12 HR
2011 - 73/289 - .329 /.366/.547/.913/ 11 HR

one flaw I see. he does need to raise his FB%. 25.1 in 2012, 31.5 in 2011.

He is pretty brutal defensively too which might chip away at his playtime.

I was kind of hoping that Jordan Pacheco would win the 3B job. he comes with C eligibility and that could be a big bonus if Pacheco could be the starting 3B.
too often when it comes to players I'm looking for the really deep sleepers, that I can grab late for upside in a 16 team league.
