Hitting the Fantasy Links-Saturday Edition

Here's a look at Saturday's fantasy links of interest:

John Sickels takes a look at Rays future (current?) closer Jake McGee in his Prospect of the Day post over at Baseball Nation and Minor League Ball. I think McGee eventually wrests the closer job in Tampa, and Sickels says he needs to work on his command before becoming the Rays closer.

Rotograph's Brian Joura takes a look at a few two start pitchers for next week, and says you should hang onto Dice K. I wouldn't. Very curious why one would still be rostering Dice K.

Jim Margalus from South Side Sox knows why Alex Rios is off to a slow start in 2011, and grounders are the culprit. He is also pulling everything according to the spray charts he includes in his article.

Rotohardball's Michael Barr writes part III of his series on Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw. He provides all kinds of graphs and charts to support his analysis on the improvements Kershaw has made on the mound in the last year or so. Neo? C'mon!!!

More fantasy links after the jump:
