Get in line, Brendan Rodgers!
We need more than one hand to count the number of intriguing hitting prospects debuting this week, and Rodgers, the Colorado Rockies infielder with seemingly little left to prove at the Triple-A level, is next. Atlanta Braves third-base prospect Austin Riley, now playing left field, homered Wednesday. Kansas City Royals infielder Nicky Lopez is batting second in the lineup. The Los Angeles Angels called up a first baseman who also pitches in Jared Walsh. What a week! Anyway, one might be wondering where to fit all these prospects on a fantasy team.
Well, it's Thursday and we're trying something different with the weekly free-agent column, breaking deeper into categories by each position. Relevant players eligible at multiple spots will be mentioned in the spot I'd utilize them, if possible, but having options is great. Feel free to share your thoughts -- as if you need prompting -- on Twitter (@karabelleric).
