(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens) We are winding up the National League First Basemen and its time to talk about some of the NL first basemen that I feel are sleepers that will most assuredly be around during the late rounds of your draft.

Don’t forget to tune in to Fridays Phil Naessens Show for our regular Fantasy Baseball segment with Jason Walker from RotoAdvice.

Mike Morse 1B OF Marlins: Morse had a nice 2014 for the Giants but now that he’s with the Fishes he might wind up sitting on the list during the last couple of rounds in your draft. If he is grab him. He’ll still strike out far too much but his dual eligibility not to mention a slugging percentage of .475 makes Morse worthy of a late round flyer.

Yonder Alonso 1B Padres: Alonso is a nice player on what should be a very good Padres offense. Alonso doesn’t strike out much (12%) and his .157 ISO isn’t too shabby either. With that lineup Alonso should probably drive in 70-80 runs and should score a few as well. I wish he had dual eligibility as that would make him more attractive but Alonso is what he is.

Ryan Howard 1B Phillies: No. This isn’t a misprint or a joke. Ryan Howard’s 2014 was good enough for Howard to make my sleeper list. He was healthy in 2014 and his 23 bombs and 95 RBI’s were nothing to sneeze at. Obviously he isn’t my first choice but if Howard is around at the end of you 12 team or more league than you good do worse than Ryan Howard.

Yasmani Grandal C 1B Dodgers: Another dual eligible player that could be available in the late rounds is Grandal. It could be risky as he’ll more than likely be in a platoon with A.J. Ellis but Grandal is healthy now and if the switch hitting catcher/first baseman can hit lefties he’ll be the Dodgers everyday catcher….and you will be happy you took the chance on Grandal.

Brandon Belt 1B Giants: It looks as though the path is finally clear for Belt to be the everyday first baseman for the Giants. Hopefully he can remain healthy and if he does Belt could quite possibly be one of the late round steals of the draft. While 2014 wasn’t Belts best ever his .449 slugging percentage and .206 ISO are very encouraging. If he’s there at the end of my draft I’m going to grab him, how about you?

Next week we’ll look at American League First Basemen.
