Our series of 2015 Fantasy baseball cheat sheets continues today. So while you wonder if Rafael Soriano has anything left to help the Cubs, let’s review the top nine designated hitters in the game.

Designated hitters may be a boring necessity to list, but that’s not to say that there aren’t some very nice players in here that simply fall through the cracks because they don’t qualify elsewhere.

Last year’s rankings are in parentheses.

1. David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox (1): Is Father Time finally catching up with Ortiz as he inches toward 500 career dingers? He definitely seems to need more rest this season — especially against tougher lefties.

2. Chris Carter, Houston Astros (NR): Carter is not hitting as well this year, but remains a great source of power (see video below) and is drawing tons of walks.

3. Kennys Vargas, Minnesota Twins (NR): A recent demotion punched a hole in Vargas’ value, but this kid has serious pop and now that he’s back after three weeks on the farm, he should be motivated to mash.

4. David DeJesus, Tampa Bay Rays (NR): DeJesus remains a solid contact hitter, is doing a great job of getting on base, and his extra-base pop has improved a tad.

5. Jimmy Paredes, Baltimore Orioles (NR): Paredes started the season like a house on fire, but has cooled. Still, his productivity has been impressive.

6. Joey Butler, Tampa Bay Rays (NR): A 15th round pick in 2006, Butler has had a long road to the majors and now that he’s finally getting a real shot, he’s been hitting up a storm, batting .330 through 30 games with nice power. He failed to stick in Texas or St. Louis, but seems to have found a home in Tampa Bay.

7. Corey Hart, Pittsburgh Pirates (NR): This former top prospect’s career has been fizzling thanks to injuries and ineffectiveness. At this point, Hart is merely a pinch hitter for the Pirates — and not a very good one at that.

8. Jesus Montero, Seattle Mariners (NR): Why the offensively struggling Mariners haven’t called up Montero is a mystery. His power is down a but, but he’s batting .315 at Triple-A.

9. Zach Walters, Cleveland Indians (NR): Walters is a .280 hitter in his minor league career, but has yet to come close to duplicating that in the majors, where his career average is over 100 points lower through 75+ games.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below who is too high or too low or missing.

2015 RotoRob Third Base Rankings

April 25, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Beltre is getting long in the tooth, but remains one of the safest options at third base. He got off to a bit of a slow start in 2015 before snapping a mini skid. Many believe that Beltre will really regress this year, and certainly the power drop off last year was worrisome, but we’ll believe it when we see it. We’re definitely expecting his BA to dip after last year’s .345 BABIP, but otherwise he’ll be a very productive option once again.

2015 RotoRob Shortstop Rankings

April 9, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Tulowitzki is reportedly healthy this spring, but the big test will be in his getting through, say, 150 games without some kind of medical issue. He tore his hip labrum in 2008 and finally had surgery on it last year. Last season, Tulo only managed 375 plate appearances, which is shame as luck was on his side — a .355 BABIP helped him post a .340 BA. Don’t pay for a repeat of that high an average, but there’s no better power source at SS than a healthy Tulowitzki.

2015 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Second Base Rankings

March 31, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Cano gets paid way more than any other second baseman, but now that he plays half his games at Safeco, he does not stand head and shoulders above everyone else at the position. Don’t get us wrong — you’ll still get fantastic production from this dude; we’re just saying there are now other options.
