Wily Peralta made 32 starts for the Milwaukee Brewers last season going 11-15 with a 4.37 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Naturally, you should be targeting Peralta in your 2014 drafts. Yes, targeting is legal in baseball and yet another reason it is better than football.

Peralta struggled through his rookie season, as most rookies do. Over his first two months, he went 3-6 in 11 starts and gave up 74 hits and 48 runs in just 52.2 innings. Peralta has a very lively arm as his average fastball velocity tied for the fourth-highest in baseball last season trailing only Matt Harvey, Stephen Strasburg, and Jose Fernandez. Despite that live arm, Peralta only struck out 34 batters over the first two months and went into June with a 3-6 record, a 6.35 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP and found himself on many discard piles in all league formats.
