Make sure you are very familiar with your league’s position eligibility rules. This can be the difference between fielding a winner and a loser. I am in the middle of trying to acquire Chone Figgins for my money league team because I am not so good at 2B. In my draft, I wanted to stock up on OF and corner IF and found myself with Kelly Johnson as my starting 2B. He’s not bad, but I know I can do better. Figgins has played 7 games (2 more than necessary in my league) at 2B this year with Howie Kendrick’s injury and is a major upgrade over Johnson. Figgins does qualify at 3B, but that’s gravy for me. I don’t need him at the hot corner.
Here’s a list of players who might have new position eligibility to consider:
|Player||Old Position||New Position(s)|
|Carlos Guillen||SS||1B, 3B|
|Brandon Inge||3B||OF, C|
