The Astros to win the AL West? Sure, if you like easy money. How about Yasiel Puig for MVP or the Rangers to win a playoff game? Those are just two of the long shots our writers and reporters are eyeing.

Predicting the next top-100 player for all 30 teams

From top prospects and rising young stars to bounce-back candidates, which players who missed the MLB Rank cut could soon find a place on the list?

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Martin Maldonado was fantasy's No. 26 catcher in 2018, his rank "that low" because of his low batting average (.220 career), and "that high" because he's good enough defensively to benefit in runs/RBIs. I'm ranking him 38th at catcher, which means AL-only No. 2 catcher value.

Royals' Perez to have Tommy John surgery

Salvador Perez, who had 27 homers and drove in 80 runs while providing a solid and calming presence behind the plate for the Royals, underwent reconstructive surgery on his right elbow.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

If Salvador Perez does miss significant time, it'd be a huge blow to the already-thin catcher position in fantasy. He was one of the few you could trust for power, projected to finish second at the position with 25 home runs, behind only Gary Sanchez.

Lies, damn lies, and projections

The Cubs are the latest team to be unhappy about their poor PECOTA projection. But is it silly to care?
