Latest Update Dennis Schroeder's role continues to grow with the Hawks. Sat Nov, 08, 11:04 PM
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.
The Hawks have been saying for quite some time that they have big plans for the young guard from Germany and his 20 minutes played tonight against the Knicks seem to support this claim. By taking one look at him dribbling the basketball, it is easy to see why the Hawks have such faith in Schroeder. He is lighting quick and has solid length for a player who is only 6-foot-1. There is obvious potential in him becoming one of the better defending guards and finishers around the rim once he fully grows into his body. Analyst: Dom Murtha
The plan is for Schroder and Shelvin Mack to split minutes between them while backing up starting point guard Jeff Teague, and that's not a recipe for fantasy success. He should be left to rot on the waiver wire. Happy Halloween! Analyst: Drew Phelps
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
