35. Jon Gray
36. Danny Salazar
37. Danny Duffy
38. Lance Lynn

49. Trevor Bauer
50. Jameson Taillon
51. C.C. Sabathia
52. Jeff Samardzija
53. Aaron Sanchez
54. Tanner Roark
55. Felix Hernandez
56. Lucas Giolito
57. Taijuan Walker
58. Zach Godley
59. Luke Weaver
60. Charlie Morton

-This group is filled with injury question marks and some major 2017 fantasy baseball disappointments.  I for one am not overly enamored with many of these names, outside of some of the youngers (Taillon, Berrios, and especially Faria); along with underrated veterans Cobb and Lynn.
-A huge annual mistake in the fantasy baseball community is going with name brand pitches or hitters despite clear evidence they are on a major decline.  In this case, avoid both David Price and Felix Hernandez who looked terrible last season and are likely on a sharp downward dip in their performance given their age and high career inning total.
-Speaking of youngsters, the St. Louis Cardinals have two terrific ones in the comebacking Alex Reyes and the power-armed Luke Weaver.  Reyes should be cheaper since he is returning from Tommy John surgery but both are tremendous sleepers this spring.
-Be very careful of New York Yankees veteran Sonny Gray who saw all his numbers go upward last season once he was traded from the Oakland A's.  Clearly, the downgrade in ballpark for a pitcher was a big reason and the AL East will not be a picnic either for Gray.
