Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
J.D. Martinez Note

If you are hoping to make some noise in the trade market, you may want to put in a feeler for J.D. who has been among the most unlucky hitters in terms of batted balls this season. While his production looks down, he is actually hitting the ball just as well as he has the past few seasons.

Nelson Cruz Note

Cruz may not be producing quite at the same rate as we've seen in years prior, but his batted ball data is virtually identical so it is difficult to even say he has slowed down. Rather, we are still talking about a top 100 overall player in fantasy baseball.

Luke Voit Note

Voit finished 2018 on a complete terror and started off the 2019 season the same way. In fact, the underlying statcast metrics all suggest he might actually hit better once he returns from the IL but that timeline is still up in the air and it may be awhile.

Carlos Santana Note

Most were shocked to see Santana compete in the home run derby, but he has been a beast for Cleveland and fantasy owners with 19 homers and a 90/90 RBI/run pace to go with a .295 batting average. He seems to only improve with age.

Khris Davis Note

Davis has dropped off in power this season, but we all know that at the drop of a hat, he can rattle off a dozen homers in a month and quickly climb that leaderboard. He is still be all means a top 25 fantasy outfielder even with is frustrating first half.

Jose Abreu Note

Abreu just keeps getting it done for fantasy owners year after year and this time around is no different. He has a .280 batting average with 21 homers going into the break and that's the type of reliable production we should expect in the second half too.

Michael Brantley Note

Brantley keeps on hitting, and as long as he stays healthy, fantasy owners can expect a .320 average from him to go with all the runs and RBIs that come from batting in the middle of the order for Houston. There won't be much in the way of power or speed, however.

Edwin Encarnacion Note

There is no doubt that Encarnacion's 25 homers are a welcome site to fantasy owners, but his .215 batting average is dreadful and may cost him at-bats once both Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton are back for the Yankees off the IL.

Yordan Alvarez Note

Yordan came into the league blazing but as we saw with Michael Chavis earlier this season, that doesn't suddenly make him a superstar. While it is possible that he continues to rake like Pete Alonso, we are better off holding back from calling him a top 10 fantasy outfielder for now.

Shin-Soo Choo Note

Choo may be getting old but he certainly isn't slowing down and may finish the year with 25 homers, 15 steals, 110 runs and a batting average near .300. While he is by no means a superstar, that would be a tremendous second outfielder.

Jorge Soler Note

Soler entered the All-Star Break on track for 40 homers and well over 100 RBIs. While the batting average won't help you at all, he seems to be on the route to a Khris Davis type of season, which as you know, would make him a top 100 fantasy asset easily.

Justin Smoak Note

According to Baseball Savant's Statcast metrics, no one in baseball has been more unlucky than Justin Smoak. He is actually hitting the ball harder and at a better angle than he did in his 2017 breakout season so it is time to buy the second-half bounceback.

Miguel Cabrera Note

Cabrera has been healthy and is batting .304 as a result, but his power is completely zapped and there is, of course, no hope for speed. You can roll him out in your fantasy lineup, however, and expect similar results to Votto at this point.

Daniel Vogelbach Note

While the batting average won't be ideal, you can avoid that penalty by just sitting him when the Mariners take on a lefty. Outside of that, Vogelbach has been one of the best hitters in all of baseball and that isn't any kind of fluke considering the dominant underlying metrics.

Adam Jones Note

Jones isn't back to his glory days, but he has certainly been a nice surprise this season for fantasy owners, contributing in three categories and not hurting anyone in batting average. You can continue to use him as a mediocre asset.
