Roster expansion is nearly upon us as Major League teams expand to 40 man rosters on Sunday. This is a time of the year when Fantasy Football and Baseball really butt heads. Will you be focusing on the new influx of MLB talent to fuel your team down the stretch? If you are already looking to next year, don’t pay all your attention to the NFL as teams cut down rosters to 53 as you may be able to add a piece or two for your baseball team in the Spring! Here are some talented players that may help you in September.
As we pass the halfway mark of the season and quickly ride towards the All-Star break, who are the minor league players that will soon be on your radar? We have seen some elite talent get the call, some directly from Double-A, skipping Triple-A altogether! Much of fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general is anticipating moves in advance of your competition. With that in mind, the third of our four part series looking at Triple-A players with fantasy appeal in 2013. We continue with National League hitters.
This week we saw the arrival of Cards pitching prospect Carlos Martinez , while John Pettibone looks like he may stick for awhile in the Phillies rotation. Christian Yelich was bypassed when Giancarlo Stanton went down, but the Marlins are looking wise with the call-up of Marcell Ozuna. Nolan Arenado made his much anticipated debut in Colorado, while another, Anthony Rendon was sent back down with the return of Ryan Zimmerman in Washington.
