Hitters whose values have fallen too far

The list of players whose 2013 fantasy draft stock will look a whole lot different from a year ago is long, but in many cases way too reactionary. With San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, a player I felt had been a bit overrated for fantasy circles -- and frankly, after watching him regularly, in real life -- his stock is likely to fall a bit too far. This is a player whose 2012 ADP (Average Draft Position) in ESPN live drafts was No. 42, ahead of Jay Bruce, Zack Greinke, David Price and all catchers and relief pitchers. Today, coming off a 24-home run season and career bests in games and RBIs, Pence is a 13th-rounder in ESPN's top 300, more than 100 spots behind Price, after numerous catchers, relievers and starting pitchers with ERAs higher than 5.
