LiLbRo's Fantasy Baseball Sleepers

Peter Bourjos - OF - LAA - You know you have a promising career when you force Torii Hunter to shift from CF to RF for you.  Bourjos had a little taste of the big leagues last year in 2010 and struggled, which most young players do, hitting only .204 in 193 AB's but he's 23.  He has great speed and he did steal 10 bags in his short time up, including 5 in the last 13 games.  His minor league numbers show that he can get it done, in 2010 in AAA Bourjos he hit .314 with 13 homers, 12 triples and 27 stolen bases in only 102 games before he got the call up.  So he plays great defense, has some power, makes contact and has awesome speed on the bases.  He could surprise a lot of people this year and quickly become a star in this league.

Daniel Hudson - P - ARI - Arizona might have got a steal from the White Sox in acquiring Daniel Hudson. He didn't get much of an opportunity in Chicago but he wasn't impressive in his short time, but Arizona who had pitching struggles all year gave him a shot and he shined.  In 11 starts Hudson threw 80 innings posting an 7-1 record, with a 1.69 ERA and an incredible 0.84 WHIP.  The Diamondbacks have a bunch of #3 or #4 pitchers that make up their rotation this year so Hudson should be in line to be the Ace or the #2.  He does a great job at keeping the bases cleared as he doesn't walk many, but you can expect the occasional long ball at Chase Field, which might be the only thing that hurts Hudson.

Mike Minor - P - ATL - If your looking for that strike out pitcher, Mike Minor might be your guy.  In his 134 innings during his minor league stint, Minor had 163 K's (10.9 K/9).  He got the call up late in 2010 and was pretty impressive.  He finished 3-2 with an ERA just under 6, but had 43 K's in 40 IP, so don't be alarmed by the high ERA as he only had 8 starts.  He just turned 23, so we can expect to see a better ERA with more IP's by Minor in 2011 but don't expect his K's to drop.  Throughout his whole career he's always had more K's then IP, which in fantasy baseball is huge.
