Most of the major sports sites have pretty good baseball stuff. CBS, Yahoo, ESPN all have lots of data, but you need to evaluate it all and make your own projections.
BTW, a good site for 'projections' is http://www.fangraphs.com/
But I'm not into auctions for baseball so none of this probably helps you for that!

The best way to prepare for an auction on short notice is to get a ranking list that includes auction values. Make sure it is a list for the type of league you are in. Using an AL only list for a mixed auction league would be a disaster.
These lists will be for a standard league, probably 5 X 5. Verify your league scoring categories so you can adjust values accordingly. The auction values will probably be based on a $260 salary cap league. Verify your league's cap. If it is different, do some simple math to convert them.
The main goal in an auction is to buy value. If Matt Kemp is up for bid and your sheet has a value of $40, don't go over that amount. Try to only bid up to your value amount.
Auctions are all different. You may have to overpay for a player if all star players are being overbid on. You don't want to end up with a bunch of value guys and $50 left over after the auction.
There are lots of tips for auctions out on the web. It can be tough for a beginner.
