Wade Miller has a golden opportunity to be a useful fantasy starter thanks to Mark Prior’s inability to stick with the Cubs.
For the fourth straight season, Mark Prior won’t be breaking camp with Cubbies. This time, it’s opened the door for Wade Miller to make hay as Chicago’s fifth starter. In the final Offseason Lowdown of the season, we examine several other late-breaking situations that have allowed some unexpected players to have potential value early this season.
C.C. Sabathia insists he’ll take the mound Monday, leaving a possible Adam Miller arrival a bit premature for now; Scott Hairston will get a chance to prove he belongs with Carlos Quentin out; and one-time stud prospect Joe Borchard should get plenty of ABs in April.
Once you figure out how to tackle step No. 17 in the following trip plan, check in on this week’s Offseason Lowdown for plenty more fantasy baseball blurbs to help you get your 2007 season off on the right foot.
