The FakeTeams Dynasty League draft is almost complete as there are only a few more owners who need to make their 20th round pick, then its on to the free agent bidding. Yu Darvish will be the top free agent available unless Yoenis Cespedes signs within the next few days, which is highly unlikely as he has yet to establish residency in the Dominican Republic. Sounds fishy to me.

My round 18 analysis after the jump:
I drafted Reds outfielder Chris Heisey before the Reds signed Ryan Ludwick to a one year deal recently. Heisey should be the starter for the Reds, as even though he strikes out plenty, he can put up solid power totals and can even steal double digit bags. I think he can be a 20 HR, 10 stolen base guy in 2012.
The Angels drafted Dodgers injured starter Rubby de la Rosa and he is already throwing after having TJS last season. He could be used out of the Dodgers bullpen this season and should have a good chance of starting in 2012.
The Blue Jays selected Jason Bay and I like the pick here. Bay, if healthy, could hit 20-25 HRs and steal double digit bases this season. The Mets have moved the fences in at Citi Field and Bay should be a beneficiary.
The A's choice of Aaron Hill is a solid pick here. Hill could flourish in Chase Field as his power should return hitting in that ballpark. I would not be surprised to see Hill hit 20+ HRs and steal 10-12 bases in 2012.
