A fringe prospect for years, Urshela is suddenly raking as an unlikely hero for the Yankees. He's batting .311 with 11 home runs and plenty of scorching plenty of hard hits to support the high average. He'll get plenty of looks at third in light of Miguel Andujar's season-ending setback, so add him in all 15-team mixed leagues and track his progress closely in shallower formats.

The Yankees have been surprised with this kid as he hit .305 in the first half. The batting average will drop a bit and there won't be much power, but if he keeps playing every day in this lineup, he'll be worth owning and using every week.
