2011 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers: Hitters

cameron_maybin.jpgWith the 2011 Fantasy Baseball season looming, here is a look at position players that will be valuable draft picks in the middle to late rounds of your draft.

Players that most people won't attribute much value to for a reason or another, but that can have a pleasanty surprising season that will make them sleepers.

 

10. CF Cameron Maybin, San Diego Padres

A fresh start and new ballpark could help Maybin reach his full potential. If Maybin utilizes his speed to his advantage and hits for contact, he will be successful. He can stretch singles into doubles and turn doubles into triples. Maybin played a career-high 82 games for the Florida Marlins in 2010 and recorded eight home runs and 28 RBI while stealing nine bases before getting traded to the Padres in the offseason.

The former first-round selection has struggled in his time at the Major League level but has the talent and tools to be a great player. He is projected to be the starting center fielder for the Padres in 2011 and is worth a draft pick in the late rounds of Fantasy Baseball drafts.
