Mashes left-handed pitching. Has the power to knock the ball out of the park. Can play several positions (second, third and first base). Can also come off the bench and deliver big hits.
Flaws: : Despite his versatility, he's not a top-end fielder or very mobile. Was somewhat injury-prone in the past. Could stand to cut down on his strikeouts and increase his patience at the plate.
Baker hit that two-run shot off Kevin Siegrist, but with the Cardinals already up 5-0 at that point, hardly anyone even cared. The rare power display was Baker's first since June 14 and he has just 24 RBI on the year. This is not some start of a great trend or anything here and if you are using Baker, your numbers are probably pretty darn weak.Analyst: Howard Bender
Schroder did an adequate job last season when given the opportunity, but until we see how everything pans out it is hard to say just how much "run" he is going to receive. For now he should remain on the fantasy radar and could become a solid contributor if something was to happen to starter Jeff Teague. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Baker is just experiencing a little shoulder soreness Friday, so he'll take a seat from the starting lineup and will only make an appearance should the Fish need him to pinch-hit late in the game. Consider him day-to-day, but you should be able to expect him to return to the field over the weekend.Analyst: Howard Bender
The work at second base certainly adds to his value thanks to his multi-position eligibility and his five walks in 23 plate appearances has helped push his on-base percentage to .346 on the year. However, he's batting just .167 with three RBI and five runs scored so it's not like he's providing much of a contribution to fantasy teams. He can be left to the waiver wire.Analyst: Howard Bender
