When asked about new teammate Jose Abreu, Paul Konerko responded, "It looks like he's going to be a stud.
While all the recent attention has been given to Masahiro Tanaka, it seems like many have forgotten about the Cuban superstar Jose Abreu, (I landed him in the fifth round of a recent AL-only draft), who you may have read about here first when we brought to your attention at the beginning of last years WBC when we pointed out that Abreu had hit .453 with 33 home runs and had a .597 OBP in just 212 at-bats of professional ball. Again, Abreu accumulated those stats while in Cuba, but the 63 250 pound 26-year old projects to hit better than his country mate Yoenis Cespedes, and now seeing the Abreu has garnered the respect of another great hitter in Paul Konerko should give you more confidence targeting Abreu in your upcoming fantasy drafts.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Dwyane Wade (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game.
Wade didn't play on Wednesday due to a sore knee, so of course he is questionable for Friday. If he isn't in the starting lineup, Mario Chalmers will once again get the start and see a bump in value. Wade has been relatively healthy this season and has produced in a big way in the process. He's averaging 21.6 points and 5.2 assists per game. Analysis: David Kerr
Ross Detwiler has made the Rangers starting rotation.
There are far worse pitchers with starting jobs in baseball, so Detwiler is deserving of this chance. He's bounced back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen while pitching for the Nationals, but should settle in as a member of the Rangers' rotation. He has solid value in AL-Only leagues. Analysis: David Kerr
