Fantasy Baseball: 11 Offseason Acquisitions with Big Values Entering 2014

Jacoby Ellsbury is one of the New York Yankees' many acquisitions who will enjoy batting in Yankee Stadium.

Change is always scary, but certain MLB players will revitalize their fantasy baseball stock this season with new surroundings.

Although individuals are less reliant on their co-workers than other professional athletes who play team sports, their utility is altered by the architects who created the league's ballparks. Each stadium is constructed with distinct dimensions, which means the locale matters.

Some newcomers also stumble upon enhanced playing time, while others can just use a fresh start. 

I'm not covering all the big names, as many of their values either remained steady or took a slight stumble. Shin-Soo Choo holds considerable value with the Texas Rangers, but he simply swapped small stadiums and loaded lineups.

Instead, these guys all benefit from ditching Point A for Point B. Even if some of these players at best warrant a late look, they deserve some recognition after changing uniforms this offseason.

Remember these names as you begin prepping for 2014 drafts.
