A flurry of free agent claims hit my CBS Sports’ Expert NL-only league this past week. Apparently, there are still players worth adding to the roster even in a league as deep as this one. If you are looking for players to add, particularly if you are in an NL-only league, this article is for you.

The league is managed by CBS Sports senior fantasy baseball writers and includes several experts from CBS and other sites. The league is a standard Roto 5X5, with a typical 23-man roster, 7 reserves and five DL spots. Total FAAB budget is $100.

The original draft was held the third week in February. This was the first time the participants had the opportunity to improve their rosters and drop players who in the meantime have moved to AL. FAAB process begun last Tuesday, March 29. The league allows daily free agent requests and $0 bidding.

My take: Since then Andrew Bailey was sent down and Keon Broxton was named Brewers’ starting CF. Juan Nicasio had a very good spring and the Braves kept Drew Stubbs on the 25-man roster after they demoted Michael Bourn.
