Top bounce-back options for 2013

One of the annual components of my fantasy baseball draft preparation for any league is to take a look not just at current results from average live drafts but at what occurred in drafts a year ago. Fantasy owners are a reactive bunch, regardless of sport, and they tend to forget about players coming off injuries or just poor play, especially if age is a factor. I find it is wise to dig a bit deeper into why certain players underperformed statistically in the most recent season and analyze the chances of them bouncing back to previous levels.
