Hey guys! Back with more fantasy baseball news to help you prepare for the upcoming draft!
The "hot-spot" or 3rd base is one of the hardest positions to fill in fantasy baseball. There are only a handful of solid guys to nab, which makes this a "Reach" position to fill.
Is Boston's Pablo Sandoval the best value bat available at 3rd base?
In 2015, Pablo had a down year, posting a statline of 245 AVG with 10 HR and 47 RBI. He also missed around 30 games due to injury.
Pablo got off to a bad start and seemed to never rebound in 2015. This isn't too different from a lot of his previous years though, as Sandoval often gets better as the season progresses.
The big issue with Pablo is getting in baseball shape. Pablo is only 5-11 but weighs 245 pounds. That's a pretty hefty weight total for a guy his size. This may possibly effect his conditioning and bat speed.
With that being said, it looks like Pablo is in great shape coming into the year. Boston has a nice mix of young talent and grizzled vets. At 29, Pablo is also in the prime of his career. He is a proven winner and capable bat. Over his career, he has shown great patience at the plate, posting a career average of 288. If you can get guys on in front of him, he can make plays to bring them home.
