jumpers a risky bet early on I not one to set out a long list of draft day dos and don mainly because trends change and the ability to adapt is often necessary. But one I tried to adhere to (though not always successfully) is to avoid, or at least devalue, batters switching leagues. For whatever reasons and several have been offered it seems like many jumping leagues require time to make the adjustments, some as long as a full season. The two exceptions seem to be a) the high average/high OBP batter and, if he has some wheels, all the better; and b) hitters who are returning to the AL or NL after spending a season in the other. So how is the Class of making out, so far? In no particular order: Curtis Granderson NYM: Unlucky .192 BABIP aside, his one HR and a .141 AVG are not what the Mets, or his fantasy owners, expected. His high K rate has followed him crosstown. Brian McCann NYY: Hitting aa cheap Texans jerseys free shipping decent .258 but that projected LH power in Yankee Stadium is still missing. Ex Brave has hit two HRs at home, both in the same April 12 game against the Bosox. Jhonny Peralta STL: Ex Tiger already has connected for four HRs, but otherwise he is batting just .169 and has gone 0 fer in 12 of his 21 starts. Mark Trumbo ARZ: He never hit for a high AVG but another poor BABIP (.192) has him flirting with the Mendoza line at .210. Those seven HRs are great, but he had five of them in his first nine games. The fact he also been limping through a stress fracture in his foot one that could keep him out for a while has likely also impacted his totals. David Freese LAA: Moved to the corner with his new team, but is still hitting more like a middle infielder . a backup one at that, with a .143 AVG and one HR. The dropoff from his monster 2012 season in St. Louis continues. nAdam Eaton CHW: Speedster is doing quite well (.276, with a .364 OBP and two bags) but that should be expected, given his tidy 13.6% strikeout rate. Norichika Aoki KC: Another speed/contact guy, with three steals. But his AVG is down 20 points, thanks mostly to a K rate that has soared from .084 last yearyear new Texans uniforms with the Brewers to 17.4. Carlos Beltran NYY: Batting .294 with five HRs. Let just call him a quality hitter unaffected by where he plays. Peter Bourjos STL: Out of Anaheim and finally getting another chance to play regularly but maybe in a new league wasn the answer. Batting just .174 with one steal. Shin Soo Choo TEX: His .314 AVG, two HRs and a steal are perhaps no surprise as he spent his entire career in the AL with Cleveland before being traded to the Reds prior to 2013. Michael Morse SF: Doing just fine (.286, 6 HRs) and, we surmise, for the same reasons as Choo spending only one season in the AL after three with Washington. Emilio Bonifacio CHC: See Morse and Choo. After an uneven one season in the AL, he back where he belongs and thriving. Corey Hart SEA: His .258 with four HRs is close enough to his career line in Milwaukee. Perhaps spending the entire 2013 season on the disabled list softened the impact of switching leagues. Dioner Navarro TOR: Though not a major fantasy piece, he is batting .286 and finally connected for his first Toronto HR on Thursday. Jarrod Saltalamacchia MIA:MIA: cheap china Texans jerseys free shipping Former Boston catcher has a pair of HRs included in his early .250 AVG and appears to be unaffected by the change in leagues. Are we noticing a trend for catchers here? WAIVER WATCH (With fantasy rating out of 5) Collin McHugh SP, Astros Considering he came in with a career 8.94 ERA, injury callup surprise start on Tuesday was mind blowing a three hitter over 6.2 IPs against the M with 12 Ks and zero walks. But at least he get another start Sunday for fantasy owners in weekly transaction leagues to see if that Astros debut was a fluke. We going into that game believing it was. Corey Dickerson OF, Rockies Has gone 4 for 10 with a pair of homers and a steal since Michael Cuddyer went on the DL and could work himself further into the OF mix should he keep this up. Joe Smith RP, Angels With Cleveland, he was one of a few skilled setup guys seen as having a chance to replace Chris Perez. But now, with Ernesto Frieri struggling, he is being mentioned as the likely next in line. Career high 9.9 K/9K/9 cheap Texans jerseys china rate supports thatthat free shipping cheap Texans jerseys view. Tony Campana OF, Diamondbacks Just 1 for 16 since Mark Trumbo injury handed him everyday status early this week, but the potential is there for some solid SB totals once he returns to his career .260 form. Andrew Romine SS/3B, Tigers Career bench guy is 7 for 20 with two SBs since taking over for the since released Alex Gonzalez at short. A .280s hitter in more than 1,200 triple A ABs.
