ZiPS Analysis

ZiPS projections are up for the Brewers, Cardinals, and Cubs.  A few possible sleepers for 2009:

  • Angel Salome, C.  .277-11-51-48-2, but Jason Kendall has the starting job.
  • Yovani Gallardo, SP.  3.73 ERA, 1.33 WHIP.  Could slip due to a lost '08.  I'm a bit disappointed by the WHIP projection.
  • Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks, and Manny Parra have definite upside for sleeper fantasy seasons.  Yes, even Braun (he could hit 50 HR).
  • Ryan Ludwick, OF.  ZiPS is a believer, calling for 31 HR if Ludwick can reach 538 ABs again.
  • Rick Ankiel, Ludwick, and Adam Wainwright are the upside picks. A sub-3.00 ERA for Wainwright, perhaps?  35 HR for Ankiel in his walk year?
  • Geovany Soto, C.  Another big year projected: .294 AVG, 25 HR, 91 RBI.
  • Tyler Colvin and Sean Marshall have a bit of upside - 20 HR is possible for Colvin (somehow given full playing time), and Marshall could find his way to a sub-4.00 ERA.
