Here’s the continuation of my top fantasy baseball pitchers, Nos. 96-109:
96. John Danks, White Sox: Roll the dice on bum shoulder.
97. Brandon Beachy, Braves: High ranking for post-TJS player. The stats he puts up should be good. Make sure you have room on DL.
98. Ernesto Frieri, Angels: I think he’s the best one in the bullpen.
99. Ted Lilly, Dodgers: Dodgers are much better, and he should have edge to get No. 5 starter’s job.
100. Sean Marshall, Reds: Very good stats from a middle reliever.
101. Kelvin Herrera, Royals: Future closer with 100 mph heater.
102. Andy Pettitte, Yankees: Not sure what’s left, plus he usually has a stint or two on DL.
103. Ryan Madson, Angels: Not sure he’s 100 percent. Not sold he’s the best one there, either.
104. Jake McGee, Rays: 55 IP, 73 Ks and a sub-2.00 ERA.
105. Clay Bucholz, Red Sox: He’s better than his 11-8 record with 4.56 ERA last year.
106. Joaquin Benoit, Tigers: If Rondon doesn’t close, he’s in the mix.
107. Addison Reed, White Sox: I could see him much higher on the end-of-year rankings.
108. Chris Perez, Indians: Got the closer’s job. There are other options if he struggles or pops off.
109. James McDonald, Pirates: Won’t be as good as first half or as bad as second half.
