Final Spring Training Cheat Sheet

Venezuela v Houston AstrosBelow is our fourth and final review of the top three hitters and pitchers in each standard 5×5 fantasy baseball category during 2010 Spring Training.

Judging a hitter or pitcher on Spring Training performance is difficult because both hitters and hurlers tend to face some competition that won’t make an Opening Day roster. Spring Training stats can be useful in discovering who might breakout in the upcoming season or which rookies can make an impact when they are called up later in the year.

In the case of sluggers like Mark Teixeira or Ryan Howard, Spring Training numbers just reinforce the notion that they are warm weather superstars – guys who dominate during the summer months and are notorious slow starters because they play in a four-season climate. Any thoughts on how spring training can positively or negatively affect a players fantasy value? We encourage you to drop them in the comments below.
