Yoenis Cespedes - A's - Though not technically a rookie, the 26-year-old Cuban All Star will make his big league debut as an Oakland Athletic after signing a 4-year, $36 million contract. Cespedes is one of the most hyped players to come out of Cuba in a generation.

Yoenis CespedesCespedes is considered a five-tool center fielder, which is a fantasy owners dream, but it is hard to gauge exactly where he will land as a major leaguer.

In the 2010-2011 season he batted .333 with 33 home runs, 99 RBI’s, 89 runs and 11 stolen bases in 90 games.

He has good power and good speed, but isn’t a pure hitter by any means. He is very susceptible to chasing pitches out of the zone and will rack up many K’s, but his good bat speed turns some of those bad pitches into hits.

Cespedes is a gamble at any point before the 9th round, but he could have tremendous payoff if he plays to his full potential.

Salvador Pérez - Royals - At just 22 years of age Perez is a gamble to be your starting catcher, but a cheap gamble that could pay nice dividends. His late season call-up resulted in a .331 batting average and three home runs with 145 at bats.
Salvador Pérez
Salvador Pérez was signed in Valencia,Venezuela in 2007 at the age of 16. He quickly built a reputation as a defensive stalwart after signing in 2006 as a 16-year-old from Venezuela.

In 2011, Perez batted .333 with 10 RBIs in 12 games at Omaha following his promotion from Class AA Northwest Arkansas. He batted .283 for the Naturals with nine homers and 43 RBIs in 79 games.

The future is bright for Salvador Pérez, the only question is how bright and how much in the future. Either way he is worth a late pick in the 2012 fantasy baseball draft.

C
Jason Kipnis - Indians - The 24-year-old converted infielder got the call from AAA Columbus in 2011 after hitting 12 home runs and stealing bases while batting .280 and never looked back. He finished 2012 batting .272 with Jason Kipnisseven home runs, nine doubles and five stolen bases with 136 at bats.

After a stellar college career in Kentucky and Arizona State, Kipnis hit 29 home runs in his 3 years in the minors with 972 at bats while batting .297.

Kipnis is a disciplined (0.63 BB/K) left-handed hitter who has a great compact swing (similar to Dan Uggla). His running speed is average but aggressive which leads to stolen bases.

While there are bigger names out there on the up and coming fantasy second basemen list, like Dustin Ackley or Danny Espinosa, it might be wise to sit back and wait for Jason Kipnis to fill your second base slot.
