Fantasy Baseball's Top 'Sleepers' for 2014

To get everyone prepared for the 2014 fantasy baseball season, I’ve been highlighting my “sleepers” from all 30 Major League teams.  This page will be updated daily and serve as a hub for all my picks leading up till Opening Day.

To qualify as a sleeper (by my standards), the player in question has to stand a good chance of improving exponentially on his typical yearly statistics.  Being on a new team, batting in a favorable spot in the lineup, inheriting the closer role, or switching from the American League to the National League are all examples of possible attributing factors.

There is, however, one rule that is set in stone and cannot be bent when it comes to dubbing someone a fantasy baseball “sleeper”…

To qualify as a sleeper in this 30-part series, a player’s average draft position (ADP) cannot exceed 120 on FantasyPros.com.  That translates to the 12th round in 10-team leagues and the 10th-round in 12-team leagues.

Throughout Spring Training, I will be reporting on all 30 teams (alphabetically from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Washington Nationals) and focusing on a player or two from each ball club who have the potential to break out in 2014.

The following is a list of teams I have covered so far.  If you enjoy reading about my sleeper picks, I suggest bookmarking this page for your convenience:

Diamondbacks   Braves   Orioles   Red Sox (#1)   Red Sox (#2)   Cubs   White Sox   Reds   Indians   Rockies   Tigers   Astros   Royals   Angels   Dodgers   Marlins   Brewers   Twins   Mets   Yankees   Athletics   Phillies   Pirates   Padres   Giants   Mariners   Cardinals   Rays   Rangers   Blue Jays   Nationals
