Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

On today’s show, we discuss our top pickups of the week with Fantrax’s lead MLB and fantasy baseball writer, Eric Cross. Is Nick Senzel (5:44) primed to deliver on the hype as a rookie, who has the most value for the rest of the season between Corey Kluber (9:54) and Chris Paddack (10:18), and will Michael Chavis (17:47) play nearly everyday once Dustin Pedroia returns? Franmil Reyes (26:50) is legitimately one of the best power hitters in baseball, and Lou Trivino (52:53) is looking like one of the best relievers in baseball at the moment. Our guys end the show strong with a couple of excellent questions from our listener mailbag (59:56).
