Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Nolan Arenado Note
Nolan Arenado photo 1. Nolan Arenado COL
While Arenado hasn't been quite as dominant as seasons in the past, he is back in the top two among fantasy third basemen once again. His reliability is off the charts and fantasy owners might be in store for an even better second half.

Alex Bregman Note
Alex Bregman photo 2. Alex Bregman HOU
While the batting average has dropped, Bregman is still compiling RBIs, runs and homers at a rate where you can't move him out of the top five third basemen in fantasy. Don't be shocked if he kicks it into the next gear in the coming months too.
32 weeks ago
Anthony Rendon Note
Anthony Rendon photo 3. Anthony Rendon LAA
Rendon may not have the ceiling of an Alex Bregman or Manny Machado, but his consistency is a sight to behold. He is on pace for 35 homers, 120 runs, 110 RBIs and a .310 batting average. We may be looking at a first round fantasy pick next year.
32 weeks ago
Kris Bryant Note
Kris Bryant photo 4. Kris Bryant CHC
Believe it or not, Bryant is on pace for 130 runs this season despite his slow start. He won't bop 40 homers like some of the other stars, but with a quality batting average and sufficient power, fantasy owners have to be pleased with their investment.
31 weeks ago
Manny Machado Note
Manny Machado photo 5. Manny Machado SD
Machado has taken a step back from an obvious second round pick to a fringe top 50 player. There is still a chance he returns to that type of production, but as expected, the new ballpark seems to be playing a significant role in his numbers.
32 weeks ago
Rafael Devers Note
Rafael Devers photo 6. Rafael Devers BOS
Going into the break, there has been no third basemen more valuable to his fantasy team than Devers. He is stealing bases, hitting bombs and scoring an unbelievable number of runs thanks to his high batting average. Lock him in as a top 30 pick next year.
32 weeks ago
Eugenio Suarez Note
Eugenio Suarez photo 7. Eugenio Suarez CIN
Suarez has been great over the last few seasons and while he may have slowed down in the first half this year, there is nothing wrong with a guy who bats .250 if he is hitting 35 bombs with 100 RBIs which is the pace Suarez is on going into the break.
32 weeks ago
Matt Chapman Note
Matt Chapman photo 8. Matt Chapman OAK
Chapman entered the All-Star break on pace for 100 runs, 100 RBIs and 35 homers. That batting average isn't ideal, but those are the numbers of a bonafide stud. If drafts were tomorrow, he'd be top 60 without a doubt.
32 weeks ago
Mike Moustakas Note
Mike Moustakas photo 9. Mike Moustakas CIN
Although he wasn't a popular free agent this off-season, fantasy owners knew they could rely on his power, especially with him being in Milwaukee, and Moose has delivered. He is on track for 45 bombs to go with 100 RBIs and runs.
32 weeks ago
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Note
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. photo 10. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. TOR
Prior to the home run derby, Guerrero's start had been so bad that many were beginning to call him a bust. Let's not forget that this is one of the best prospects in the last decade. Make a move for him before his owner snaps out of it.
32 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson Note
Josh Donaldson photo 11. Josh Donaldson MIN
Donaldson has managed to stay healthy so far this season, but the risk remains a factor. With that said, when he is on the field, you can still bank on 30-homer power with plenty of RBIs and runs.
32 weeks ago
Max Muncy Note
Max Muncy photo 12. Max Muncy LAD
Muncy has now been one of the best hitters in baseball over the last calendar year. He has shown no signs of slowing down so don't be shocked when you look up at the end of the season and see 40 homers and 100 RBIs with a solid batting average.
32 weeks ago
Justin Turner Note
Justin Turner photo 13. Justin Turner LAD
Turner is still chugging along as an underrated fantasy baseball asset. He may reach 90 runs, 20 HRs and a .300 batting average this season despit being drafted low each and every season.
32 weeks ago
Eduardo Escobar Note
Eduardo Escobar photo 14. Eduardo Escobar ARI
It seemed inevitable each week that Escobar would finally return to the player he once was, but at this point, it seems clear that the breakout is for real. Now, he might not be a top-five fantasy third baseman, but top 15 seems reasonable.
32 weeks ago
DJ LeMahieu Note
DJ LeMahieu photo 15. DJ LeMahieu NYY
There is no doubt about it that LeMahieu has been an incredible surprise, but that doesn't mean that he will continue hitting .340 with power. Granted, the runs and RBIs will continue to help fantasy owners, but you may be able to sell high right now and will want to take advantage of that opportunity.
31 weeks ago
Yuli Gurriel Note
Yuli Gurriel photo 16. Yuli Gurriel HOU
Gurriel isn't a big source of power, but playing in this Astros offense guarantees him plenty of runs and RBI opportunities. Add in a worthwhile batting average and you've got a solid starter for your fantasy squad.
32 weeks ago
Matt Carpenter Note
Matt Carpenter photo 17. Matt Carpenter STL
Don't drop Carpenter quite yet. Remember, after all, that Carp was every bit as bad heading into July last year before he went scorched earth in the second half. You don't have to play him, but keep him on your bench and wait out the slump.
32 weeks ago
Miguel Sano Note
Miguel Sano photo 18. Miguel Sano MIN
Sano is back off the IL and doing Sano things with a .230 batting average but with loads of power. He could hit 25 bombs in the second-half with the RBIs and runs to go with it so don't give up on him quite yet.
32 weeks ago
Wil Myers Note
Wil Myers photo 19. Wil Myers SD
In terms of batting average, Myers has been abysmal, but he might also finish the season with 20 homers, 20 steals and 80 runs, plus we know he has much more in the way of upside so don't drop him quite yet.
32 weeks ago
Yoan Moncada Note
Yoan Moncada photo 20. Yoan Moncada CWS
If you are ever looking for an example of a post-hype sleeper, turn to Moncada who was all but left for dead by disappointed fantasy owners this winter. He finally broke out with both power and average while producing what will likely be double-digit steals by the end of the season.
31 weeks ago
Hunter Dozier Note
Hunter Dozier photo 21. Hunter Dozier KC
Dozier entered the all-star break om pace for 20 homers, 80 RBIs and carries a .283 batting average. Regardless of whether those numbers are a fluke or not, you can bet he won't regress enough to become waiver wire fodder in the second half.
32 weeks ago
Ryan McMahon Note
Ryan McMahon photo 22. Ryan McMahon COL
McMahon has loads of upside seeing that he plays in Coors, has power and some speed. Now, it hasn't shown yet, and the playing time hasn't been consistent, but he is a classic post-hype sleeper to have a huge second half for fantasy owners.
32 weeks ago
Asdrubal Cabrera Note
Asdrubal Cabrera photo 23. Asdrubal Cabrera WSH
Cabrera is the cut-off between a long list of useful fantasy middle infielders and players who can fill a roster spot if you are desperate for counting stats. The batting average is going to hurt and he surely won't steal bags, but the other three categories are all plusses.
31 weeks ago
Scott Kingery Note
Scott Kingery photo 24. Scott Kingery PHI
Kingery was white-hot for a month and has since come back down to earth like Tim Anderson. While Kingery is a quality ballplayer, his underlying metrics suggest the regression will continue coming, albeit with some power and speed to soften the blow.
31 weeks ago
Renato Nunez Note
Renato Nunez photo 25. Renato Nunez BAL
Nunez has always had power, there was never a doubt about that. What is surprising, however, is that it has translated to a 90 RBI, 80 runs pace. The batting average will be tough to swallow, but even so, he is worthy of a fantasy roster spot without question.
32 weeks ago
Kyle Seager Note
Kyle Seager photo 26. Kyle Seager SEA
Seager was as consistent of a fantasy asset as you could find two years ago, but age has slowed him down enough that it is to the point where there is no case to be made for owning him in fantasy baseball.
32 weeks ago
Evan Longoria Note
Evan Longoria photo 27. Evan Longoria SF
Longoria is struggling in San Francisco with a low batting average and limited power. While there is a chance that changes in the coming months, there is no sense in waiting it out. Rather, just drop him until he proves himself useful in fantasy baseball.
32 weeks ago
Maikel Franco Note
Maikel Franco photo 28. Maikel Franco KC
Although Franco isn't going to help your fantasy team's batting average and he only has mediocre power, there is worth in the fact that he plays almost every day in one of the best lineups in baseball. With that will come both RBIs and runs.
32 weeks ago
Austin Riley Note
Austin Riley photo 29. Austin Riley ATL
Riley had everyone excited upon his arrival to the bigs and while that name recognition may still linger, he is coming back down to earth a bit. Don't be shocked if he finishes the year with 35 homers, but his batting average won't help much and he offers zero speed.
32 weeks ago
Gio Urshela Note
Gio Urshela photo 30. Gio Urshela NYY
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.
32 weeks ago
David Fletcher Note
David Fletcher photo 31. David Fletcher LAA
Fletcher isn't going to help you win the home run category, nor will he steal double-digit bases, but he might reach 80 runs with a batting average near .300 so make room for him if he is still available in your league.
32 weeks ago
Jake Lamb Note
Jake Lamb photo 32. Jake Lamb ARI
You may not feel great about drafting Lamb after his trainwreck 2018 season, but he is just one year removed from 30 homers and 105 RBIs so don't sleep on him bouncing back. With that said, the move to the humidor in Arizona makes it seem as though his ceiling is a bit lower than what we saw from him in 2017.
47 weeks ago
Travis Shaw Note
Travis Shaw photo 33. Travis Shaw TOR
Shaw could potentially be a worthwhile addition at some point later in the year, but for now, he has lost his job to Hiura and should be released in every format.
32 weeks ago
Todd Frazier Note
Todd Frazier photo 34. Todd Frazier TEX
Frazier has had a bit of a resurgence this season, and while it hasn't amounted to a ton, there is a place on a fantasy roster for a guy with 25 homer power and a mediocre batting average which is what he appears to offer again.
32 weeks ago
J.D. Davis Note
J.D. Davis photo 35. J.D. Davis NYM
Davis is raking for the Mets, but it hasn't quite shown up on paper. His underlying metrics are exceptional so don't be surprised if his batting average and power numbers follow in the second half.
32 weeks ago
Jeimer Candelario Note
Jeimer Candelario photo 36. Jeimer Candelario DET
There is nothing sexy about drafting Candelario, but you can anticipate his batting average coming up 20 points this year, as he was among the most unlucky hitters in that department last year. Along with that, fantasy owners should get around 20 homers from him.
47 weeks ago
Colin Moran Note
Colin Moran photo 37. Colin Moran PIT
Moran is still batting near .300 heading into the all-star break and although he doesn't offer a ton in the power department, finishing with 18 homers and 80 RBIs would be a welcome line to any fantasy owner.
32 weeks ago
Chad Pinder Note

Ian Happ Note

Marwin Gonzalez Note
Marwin Gonzalez photo 40. Marwin Gonzalez MIN
Jung Ho Kang Note
Jung Ho Kang photo 41. Jung Ho Kang FA
Kang may not open the season as the starter in Pittsburgh, but with the way he is playing this spring, you'll want to keep a close eye on him. After all, we've seen Kang be a useful fantasy piece in years prior.
47 weeks ago
Howie Kendrick Note
Howie Kendrick photo 42. Howie Kendrick WSH
In what may be the most surprising breakout in all of baseball, the 36-year-old Kendrick has turned into a prolific hitter with power to go along with his .330 batting average. And believe it or not, the underlying stats suggest it is the real deal so don't get the crazy idea of trying to sell him high.
31 weeks ago
Willians Astudillo Note
Willians Astudillo photo 43. Willians Astudillo MIN
Tommy La Stella Note
Tommy La Stella photo 44. Tommy La Stella LAA
La Stella was among the top breakout infielders this year before going on the IL for 2 to 3 months. If you have enough room on your IL or even bench, he may be worth holding onto for the head to head playoff stretch.

Jose Osuna Note

Ty France Note
Ty France photo 50. Ty France SD
France has been terrific in the minors this season and while he wasn't impressive in his MLB debut, there is a chance that he gets another shot before the end of the season and proves to be a worthwhile waiver wire addition.
