Marcus Semien, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

Semien can provide cheap power and speed at both 2B and MI. Second base isn’t the feeblest of fantasy positions, but it certainly isn’t one where you can sit back and fall into a great player. In our 2014 Second Base Recap we looked back at the top 20 finishers at second from the past season. In that that 11-15 range, the guys who just missed regular startability in 10-team...

Where Marcus Semien’s Weakness Is Strongest

In each of the past two seasons, Chicago White Sox rookie infielder Marcus Semien has recorded among the most impressive walk and strikeout rates in the high minors. Insofar as it’s generally the case that walk and strikeout figures from the high minors translate somewhat predictably to the majors, a reasonable person — and also […]

Marcus Semien, the Next Matt Carpenter

Last year there was not one player I was making sure I had on my fantasy teams more than Matt Carpenter. Thankfully most of my leagues are keeper or dynasty leagues so I have Carpenter not only for last year’s magnificent season but at a super low price going forward.
