Fantasy Baseball Dugout has done it again. We’ve scooped everybody with our list of the premiere 2009 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers.
These guys probably won’t get a lot of action in September, but they are awesome prospects likely to be impact players in 2009. If you are in a keeper league and you are out of it for this season, now is the time to pick up these 2009 fantasy baseball sleepers on the cheap.
Nate Schierholtz, OF, Giants — He’s the guy who ran over the Chinese catcher in the Olympic games. Schierholtz hit .304 in 100+ AB’s last year for the Giants.
David Price, SP, Rays — Price is the 6′ 6″ first rounder out of Vanderbilt last year who has blistered through the minors this year. He won his first 11 starts!
Matt LaPorta, OF, Indians — The former Florida Gator was drafted 7th overall by the Brewers in 2007. This dude has power. 12 homers in his first 30 games in the minors and LaPorta also hit a homer in the bronze medal game for Team USA.
Matt Wieters, C, Orioles — The Sporting News claims Wieters could be “one of the top five backstops by this time next year.” Wow, some claim. Has anybody told Ramon Hernandez? Wieters is a big time slugger. He is not, however, expected to get a September call up and will play in the Arizona Instructional League.
Scott Elbert, RP, Dodgers — A 2004 first rounder who has great stuff. He’s 3-0, 1.46 in his last ten games with Jacksonville. He’ll be limited to one inning per game with the Dodgers.
Dallas McPherson, 3B, Marlins — McPherson leads all minor leaguers with 42 homers this year at AAA Albuquerque. Unfortunately for McPherson, he would have been up earlier, but is blocked by Jorge Cantu who has been the Fish’s best player this season.
Tony K. Gwynn — OF, Brewers — He will likely steal some bases for the Brewers coming off the bench in September. His Dad was a pretty good player too.
Matt Gamel — 3B, Brewers — Gamel was hitting .384 in mid-June, but has slipped some since to .329 when he got the call up to the Brew Crew. Gamel will challenge Bill Hall for the Brewers third base job next year.
