Fantasy Baseball Players Trending Down: Tyler Glasnow, Tyler O’Neill, Gunnar Henderson

It’s Thursday. You know what that means.

Every week during the fantasy baseball season we do a stock report looking at players whose value is rising or declining. If there are specific players you want me to dive into, feel free to tag me on Twitter.

Now, without any further ado, let’s get to it.

Fantasy Baseball Stock Report

Stock Up

Tyler Glasnow (SP – LAD) 

A date with the strikeout-happy Twins certainly helped, but Tyler Glasnow looked dominant in his last outing. He had 14 punchouts on just 88 pitches, making him the first pitcher to strike out 14 batters on fewer than 90 pitches since pitches were first tracked in 1988.

Through four starts, Glasnow ranks seventh in K% (32.2%) and 12th in xFIP (2.92), which is on par with what he put up last year in 21 starts. He’s allowed more than three hits just once this year.

Don’t expect the 58.3% strikeout rate from his last start to be the norm, but Glasnow is up there as one of the top arms in the league.

Tyler O’Neill (OF – BOS) 

Tyler O’Neill has been nothing short of dominant since being traded to the Red Sox this offseason. He is currently leading the majors in wOBA (.550), ISO (.514) and wRC+ (263).

He came into the season having only played three games at Fenway but the slugger has already shown that his right-handed power matches up well with Boston’s Green Monster. He took Corbin Burnes deep on Opening Day, which secured Boston’s lone run in the contest. He also smashed a car windshield with the ball in the process.

For a team that lacks pitching, especially after Nick Pivetta‘s recent elbow injury, the Sox have solid power bats in Rafael Devers and Triston Casas that make for nice pairings with O’Neill in fantasy.

Gunnar Henderson (SS – BAL) 

It’s probably a little too early to say Jackson Holliday‘s stock is up. The rookie has played just one game at the time of writing. But if there is any team whose entire stock is up, it would be the Baltimore Orioles.

Gunnar Henderson is currently second on this team in ISO (.256) while sporting solid BB% (10.2%) and K% (18.4%) numbers. The 23-year-old has been leading off for this young squad, giving him ample opportunities for runs scored.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see last year’s rookie of the year win an AL MVP award as early as this season or next.
