Marcus Semien, the Next Matt Carpenter

Last year there was not one player I was making sure I had on my fantasy teams more than Matt Carpenter. Thankfully most of my leagues are keeper or dynasty leagues so I have Carpenter not only for last year’s magnificent season but at a super low price going forward.

Q&A: Marcus Semien, Chicago White Sox Infield Prospect

Coming into the 2013 season, Marcus Semien was a nothing-special prospect in a not-so-good Chicago White Sox system.
