Baseball’s Top Performers Of April 2012

Posted by on Apr 23, 2012 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Tips | 0 comments

Two weeks into the baseball season and already tons to discuss. I always state that at this early juncture the sample size is too small to make meaningful conclusions, i.e look at Josh Willingham’s .419/.514/.871 stat line. Having said that, my friends usually don’t miss an opportunity to harp on me and state that they are still putting up these numbers, no matter if they’ve only had 30 at-bats.

Editor’s Note: This post was written by new Fantasy Baseball Dugout contributor Eric Mercer. He’s a fan of the Blue Jays and blogs for us from the Great White North. Follow him on Twitter. There are numerous young players in the majors that are about to make, or have already made, an impact. A few years ago, or even last year, these players would have been classified as prospects. Since these players are so young, and haven’t shown consistent reliability, they can be acquired at a cheap rate. Or at least a cheaper rate than their production warrants. These players are the building blocks for their respective franchises, and they can be extremely valuable to any fantasy squad, especially ones participating in keeper leagues. This list of five (more to come) is mixed of pitchers and hitters, some quite...
