Every fantasy baseball season, there are veterans that surprise us and end up having bounce back seasons. Here are the top-five veteran players having resurgent fantasy baseball season in 2014.
Cabrera was flying under the radar for the first couple weeks of the season, but the fantasy community has finally started paying attention to the veteran. Melky has a .329 batting average and he has already smacked 16 extra-base hits (8 2Bs/2 3Bs/6 HRs). Cabrera is quietly having another All-Star fantasy campaign.
Hudson has pitched brilliantly this season with the Giants. The veteran has shockingly thrown at least seven innings in each start, including back-to-back outings of 8 2/3 innings. The 38-year-old also has a 1.99 ERA and a sizzling 0.74 WHIP. Hudson is one veteran that has carried many rotations this fantasy season.
Morneau has been tearing the cover off the ball this season. The 11-year-veteran currently has a robust .339 batting average and he has already smacked seven long balls. He has even added 26 RBIs to his gaudy early-season numbers. Morneau is one aging stick that has performed flawlessly this season.
After his nasty 50-game PED suspension, Cruz was avoided like the plague this spring. However, the 33-year-old is having an All-Star caliber season so far. He clubbed nine homers this season to go along with a .291 batting average and 29 RBIs. Cruz has become a must-start in all formats and the veteran continues to outshine all the other power sticks in Baltimore's lineup.
Of all the veterans on this list, Pujols is easily the most surprising. The nine-time All-Star had an abysmal 2013 campaign (.258 AVG, 17 HRs, 64 RBIs), but he has been putting up vintage Pujols numbers this year. He has already smacked 10 home runs through the first 32 games to go along with 26 RBIs. The veteran’s batting average (.302 AVG) has rebounded as well. The Machine appears to be stuck on automatic right now.
