We may only be a couple days into the 2014 fantasy baseball season, but there have already been a handful of surprises. For those of you eagerly awaiting Wednesday night's action, here are five bold fantasy baseball predictions to look for tonight.
McCutchen won the NL MVP Award in 2013 after having a phenomenal season. He finished with a .333 batting average to go along with 21 home runs and 27 stolen bases. Cutch has become one of the most dangerous outfielders in all of fantasy. He will rack up his first multi-hit game of the year on Wednesday night and he will begin his campaign for the 2014 NL MVP.
Colon’s 2013 season was a dream for fantasy owners. The aging veteran recorded an 18-6 record with a 2.65 ERA and earned himself a giant contract from the Mets in the process. Unfortunately, Colon is on the verge of his 41st birthday and doesn’t have much left in the tank. This will be the beginning of an absolutely horrendous fantasy season for Jabba the Hut.
Big Papi has notoriously defied logic year after year. Ortiz has amassed an astonishing 431 home runs throughout his illustrious career and continues to hit 30-plus homers each season. He will face off against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night, a team in which he hit four longballs against last season. Ortiz will put up big fantasy numbers again in 2014 and his first home run will come tonight.
On the eve C. C. Sabathia’s dreadful six-run debacle, the New York Yankees will need some stability out of their rotation. In six seasons stateside, Kuroda has a career 3.40 ERA and has eclipsed the 200-inning plateau in three consecutive years. He has become the most consistent member the team’s rotation and will start the 2014 season off with another gem.
On Wednesday night at the Great American Ballpark, two of the best young hurlers in fantasy will be taking the mound. The Cards will send postseason sensation Michael Wacha to the hill to take on Cincinnati’s young stud Tony Cingrani. Considering the firepower on the mound tonight, fantasy fans shouldn't expect a ton of runs to be scored in this one.
