Drafting Ramirez & Cabrera Means Third Base Eligibility The biggest news for sleepers at the third base position for the 2012 fantasy baseball season is actually two very well known players who didn’t play a single game at the hot corner last year and are therefore not eligible for your draft at third.  They are Hanley Ramirez of the Miami Marlins and Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers.  Don’t forget about them in your draft.  While you likely can’t draft them at third, they will have qualified for third base after the first two weeks of the season.  Like you needed any extra incentive to draft HanRam or Miggy?
