Profile: Dan Straily, SP, Oakland A's
The situation: The A's could wait no longer. Despite having the best team ERA in the American League and an already-adept rotation, the team called up the breakout prospect of the year in Dan Straily, who leads the minor leagues in strikeouts (175). He's expected to make his big league debut Friday, starting against the Toronto Blue Jays. [Editor's Note: Straily will be added to the ESPN fantasy baseball player pool overnight. He will be on waivers for leagues who use them (24 hours in ESPN standard leagues) and available for the next bidding period in leagues that use FAAB.]
