Fantasy Baseball 2011: Hitting The Fantasy Links

Let's take a look at Thursday's fantasy links of interest:

John Sickels writes about White Sox third baseman Brent Morel in his Prospect of the Day over at Baseball Nation and Minor League Ball. Sickels feels that Morel will never be a star, but should develop into a steady player.

Rotograph's Zach Sanders discusses the return of Mat Latos and a couple Braves starters in his NL Starting Pitchers article. Do the Braves have some excess starting pitchers or what? Some lucky team will be happy to make a deal with them come July 31st.

Rotograph's Jeff Zimmerman discusses a few unranked second baseman who have emerged in the early going this season. Angel Sanchez is a shortstop, no? Either way, he was definitely unranked and has had a very hot start to the 2011 season.

Rotoprofessor tells fantasy owners that they should trade Asdrubal Cabrera now while his value is high.

Rotoprofessor provides an update on a few prospects who could see some time later this season including Royals third base prospect Mike Moustakas.

More fantasy links after the jump:

RotoHardball's Eno Sarris gives a qualified thumbs up to a fantasy buy low on Francisco Liriano,even after his bad start on Wednesday afternoon. I have to agree, but Liriano will have to cut his current walk rate in half. On the other hand, is anyone selling low on Liriano?

John Sickels addressed several prospects in his Daily Minor League Notes over at Minor League Ball including Mike Trout, Mike Moustakas and a few other lesser known prospects you should become familiar with.

Satchel Price from Beyond the Boxscore takes a look at Howie Kendrick and wonders if he is this year's Rickie Weeks. Last season, Rickie Weeks opened the year with a very strong April, and finally stayed healthy en route to a star-caliber season. Could this be the year that Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick does the same? 

Baseball Nation's Rob Neyer takes a look at the issue of where Braves outfielder Jason Heyward should bat in the Braves lineup. I think he should bat third.

David Gonos from RotoExperts take a look at eight players who are off to hot starts and recommends that fantasy owners should look to pick up off the waiver wire, if available.

Rotoarcade's Scott Pianowski says fantasy owners should look to add White Sox reliever Sergio Santos after yet another bullpen implosion yesterday. I think owners should stick with Matt Thornton and Chris Sale for the long haul. It's early.

Baseball Nation's Jeff Sullivan says New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is having a rough start to his 2011 regular season, suggesting that he may be even closer to the end than was already feared.
