Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN.com has released his preliminary rankings for the 2010 top 200 fantasy players. Clearly this list will change based on offseason movement and injuries before March, but it’s never too early to start preparing your fantasy draft. Here are the players with Kentucky ties on the list:
Now that the regular season is over, pending tonight’s Twins/Tigers game, I thought we’d looks at the list of MLB free agents to see what players with Kentucky connections might be changing teams this winter. For the full list check out MLBTradeRumors, who does an excellent job of monitoring such things year round. I’ve also indicated if the player classifies as a Type A or B player, which entitles his old team to draft compensation if it offers him arbitration and he still signs with another team.
Brandon Webb (B)– Diamondbacks — UK — Club Option
Todd Wellemeyer — Cardinals — Bellarmine
Austin Kearns — Nationals — Lexington, Ky., — Club Option
