Former Tallahassee Community College star Ryan Freel has made a career as a super utility player in the Major Leagues for the Cincinnati Reds. However, his role just expanded exponentially.
Freel, a stolen base threat, and high average guy will start in centerfield. Ken Griffey Jr., a future Hall of Famer, will move to right field.
The transition is more an effort by the Reds to keep Junior fresh and avoid injuries, rather than offer Freel an opportunity to replace his production.
Shports.com ranks Freel the 14th best fantasy second baseman, because of his high stolen base totals and average. Of course, Freel retains added fantasy value because of his eligibility as an infielder as well.
