Best Fantasy Baseball Sleepers There are a lot of things that you need to do to make your draft successful. At thetop of the list is your ability to sniff out the sleepers from the snoozers. As anyowner will tell you, picking the right sleeper can make the difference between anaverage draft and a great one. Here are the best fantasy baseball sleepers for 2010.Michael Bourn, Houston Astros, Outfield – Bourn is one of the better steal onlyplayers available. He has no power (3 homers) but he improved his average to .285,scored 97 runs and stole 61 bases in 73 attempts.Billy Butler, Kansas City Royals, First Base — Butler is just 24 and with only one fullseason under his belt he should improve in the numbers he posted in 2009: .301/21/93 with 78 runs scored. Jorge Cantu, Florida Marlins, First Base – Cantu is the best fantasy baseball sleeper.He’s averaged .283/23/98 for the past two seasons and his eligible at both infieldcorner positions. That performance was no accident because in 2005, while a 23year-old with the Rays, he went .285/28/117.Rajai Davis, Oakland Athletics, Outfield – Davis was successful on 41 of 53 his stealattempts while batting .305 in part time duty. Given that he’ll be with the Athleticsfrom the get go those numbers should improve dramatically. J.J. Hardy, Minnesota Twins, Shortstop – Before struggling with nagging injuries lastyear, Hardy had put together back to back years where he averaged .280/25/77with a .471 slugging percentage and 84 runs scored. If he repeats those numbershe’d rate in the top five at the position. Todd Helton, Colorado Rockies, First Base – Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that if your top first baseman goes down you’ll have a guy who went .325/15/86 waitingthere to pick up the slack?Casey McGehee, Milwaukee Brewers, Second Base – Although he has yet to play afull season McGehee has a lot going for him. He was productive in part time duty(.301/16/66), is also eligible at third base and will bat behind Prince Fielder andRyan Braun, meaning he’ll see a lot of good pitches.Carlos Quentin, Chicago White Sox, Outfield – Quentin slugged .571 in 2008 enroute to posting 36 humans and 100 RBI while scoring 96 runs in only 130 games. Then he was beset by injuries in 2009. He turns 28 in August so a return to his 2008form is still possible.Geovany Soto, Chicago Cubs, Catcher – Last year’s biggest disappointment is thisyear’s sleeper. If he’s healthy the 27 year-old will be a lot closer to this 2008 self (.285/23/86.) than his 2009 self (.218/11/47).
