Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Ronald Acuna Jr. Note
Ronald Acuna Jr. photo 1. Ronald Acuna Jr. LF,CF,RF - ATL
Acuna picked up right where he left off last season with 70 first-half runs to go with a 40/20 homer/steal pace to go with it. As if that wasn't enough, he may end up hitting .300 as well, putting him in the conversation as the top fantasy asset in baseball next spring.

Nolan Arenado Note
Nolan Arenado photo 2. Nolan Arenado 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Mookie Betts Note
Mookie Betts photo 3. Mookie Betts CF,RF - LAD
Incredibly, as disappointing as Betts has been, he is still a top 10 fantasy outfielder and hasn't even begun to play his best ball yet. Although Trout, Yelich and Bellinger are the clear top three, it would surprise no one if Betts has the best second half of them all.
32 weeks ago
J.D. Martinez Note
J.D. Martinez photo 4. J.D. Martinez LF,RF,DH - BOS
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.
32 weeks ago
Trevor Story Note
Trevor Story photo 5. Trevor Story SS - COL
It is a challenge to imagine thinking Story would outperform his absurd breakout 2018 season, but here we are in mid-July with it looking more likely than not. It goes without saying that if he keeps it up, we'll be talking about Story in the first round next Spring.
32 weeks ago
Cody Bellinger Note
Cody Bellinger photo 6. Cody Bellinger 1B,CF,RF - LAD
Although he has cooled off, Bellinger is clearly one of the top three fantasy assets in baseball this season. He may end the season with 120 runs, 120 RBIs, 50 homers and 15 stolen bases. And don't forget that he is still batting over .340.
32 weeks ago
Trea Turner Note
Trea Turner photo 7. Trea Turner SS - WSH
Turner missed enough time that the counting stats entered the break far behind other star shortstops, but he is still performing at a 20/45 full-season pace with a batting average of .280. If he can stay on the field, that's a top 15 overall fantasy asset.
32 weeks ago
Alex Bregman Note
Alex Bregman photo 8. Alex Bregman 3B,SS - 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.
33 weeks ago
Francisco Lindor Note
Francisco Lindor photo 9. Francisco Lindor SS - CLE
Lindor had a slow start as he recovered from his injury, but with the way he performed to close out the first half, it seems likely that he will finish the year with 25 homers, 25 steals and a batting average nearing .300. It's tough to beat that at any position, let alone shortstop.
32 weeks ago
Freddie Freeman Note
Freddie Freeman photo 10. Freddie Freeman 1B - ATL
Freeman is as steady as ever this season, batting a crisp .313 through the first half with 20+ homers and nearly 70 RBIs and runs each. He may not have the upside of Pete Alonso, but there is something to be said about Freeman's reliability month by month.
33 weeks ago
Charlie Blackmon Note
Charlie Blackmon photo 11. Charlie Blackmon CF,RF - COL
Blackmon took a bit of a step back last year after finishing as the top overall fantasy asset in 2017. It seemed as though he was going to continue his downward trend at the start of the season but Blackmon has kicked it into gear and ended up being a top fantasy outfielder in the first-half.
32 weeks ago
Anthony Rendon Note
Anthony Rendon photo 12. Anthony Rendon 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Aaron Judge Note
Aaron Judge photo 13. Aaron Judge RF - NYY
Now that Judge is finally back, everyone will soon remember why he was recently considered to be in the top-tier of outfielders. Don't be shocked if he leads the AL in homers and runs over the rest of the season.
32 weeks ago
Juan Soto Note
Juan Soto photo 14. Juan Soto LF - WSH
Soto may not equate to much in the field long term, but in fantasy, he continues to dominate with an average still over .300 to go with plus contribution in RBIs, runs, HRs and even a few stolen bases mixed in.
32 weeks ago
Jose Altuve Note
Jose Altuve photo 15. Jose Altuve 2B - HOU
Altuve is not done in the way Joey Votto appears to be, but he sure has hit a wall that caps both his batting average and stolen bases. The average should climb toward .290 with sufficient power remaining, but at this point, he is merely a second or even third-tier fantasy middle infielder.
33 weeks ago
Bryce Harper Note
Bryce Harper photo 16. Bryce Harper RF - PHI
It is hilarious that an .850 OPS is a major disappointment for someone like Harper. He has actually been solid in fantasy as well thanks to 115 combined RBIs and runs thus far. Sure, the batting average is still low, but overall, no one should be complaining about his production.
32 weeks ago
Xander Bogaerts Note
Xander Bogaerts photo 17. Xander Bogaerts SS - BOS
Entering the all-star break, Xander has been the single most useful fantasy shortstop thanks to a batting average north of .300, 20+ homers and mostly his 130/130 RBIs and runs pace. Both of those may slow down but there is no denying that he is firmly within the top tier of fantasy shortstops moving forward.
32 weeks ago
Starling Marte Note
Starling Marte photo 18. Starling Marte CF - ARI
While still not elite, Marte is clearly a second-tier fantasy outfielder with both power and speed to go with a potential 100/100 RBIs and runs season despite playing for the Pirates' sluggish offense. Fantasy owners have to be loving his performance once again.
32 weeks ago
Javier Baez Note
Javier Baez photo 19. Javier Baez SS - CHC
The underlying metrics screamed regression last year but it hasn't come. It may be time to admit that he is some kind of cheat code who will continue to defy BABIP odds and bat near .300 with all the power to go with it.
33 weeks ago
Manny Machado Note
Manny Machado photo 20. Manny Machado 3B,SS - 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.
33 weeks ago
Anthony Rizzo Note
Anthony Rizzo photo 21. Anthony Rizzo 1B - CHC
Rizzo is your typical player who is much better in real life than in fantasy baseball. With that said, he is still on track to hit 35 homers with a quality batting average, but that doesn't mean he is as useful as even Max Muncy in fantasy.
33 weeks ago
Kris Bryant Note
Kris Bryant photo 22. Kris Bryant 3B,LF,RF - 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.
32 weeks ago
Whit Merrifield Note
Whit Merrifield photo 23. Whit Merrifield 2B,CF,RF - KC
Whit has done exactly what fantasy owners have hoped for up until the break. He is on pace for both 20 homers and 30 steals to go with a batting average north of .300. While he doesn't possess top-tier upside, fantasy owners can continue to rely on him as a 3rd or even 2nd round value.
33 weeks ago
George Springer Note
George Springer photo 24. George Springer CF,RF - HOU
With the injuries to both Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, Springer's counting stats haven't quite been what fantasy owners expected but he is still among the clear-cut second-tier of fantasy outfielders and may finish with 35 homers, 10 steals and a .300 batting average.
32 weeks ago
Paul Goldschmidt Note
Paul Goldschmidt photo 25. Paul Goldschmidt 1B - STL
Fantasy owners have been disappointed with Goldschmidt and wondering if he has hit the inevitable brick wall that comes with age. It is possible but more likely that he is just in an extended slump as we've seen from him before. Expect fireworks after the break.
33 weeks ago
Rafael Devers Note
Rafael Devers photo 26. Rafael Devers 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Nelson Cruz Note
Nelson Cruz photo 27. Nelson Cruz DH - MIN
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.
32 weeks ago
Eddie Rosario Note
Eddie Rosario photo 28. Eddie Rosario LF,RF - MIN
Rosario is no longer swiping any bags for fantasy owners, but his consistency at the plate has rewarded them richly as he is once again on track for 30 homers with a useful batting average and all the RBIs and runs to match both.
32 weeks ago
Eugenio Suarez Note
Eugenio Suarez photo 29. Eugenio Suarez 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Ozzie Albies Note
Ozzie Albies photo 30. Ozzie Albies 2B - ATL
Albies bounced back nicely after last season's awful second-half. He isn't an elite source of either power or speed, but he contributes nicely in both areas while adding plus batting average and plenty of RBIs and runs thanks to the strong Braves lineup.
33 weeks ago
Gleyber Torres Note
Gleyber Torres photo 31. Gleyber Torres 2B,SS - NYY
Although last year's sample wasn't quite large enough to draw a full conclusion, fantasy owners can be sure now that his rookie season wasn't a fluke. Torres is a safe source for batting average and homers with the lineup continuing to prop up his RBIs and runs as well.
33 weeks ago
Andrew Benintendi Note
Andrew Benintendi photo 32. Andrew Benintendi LF,CF - BOS
Even with the power disappearing, Benintendi batting in the middle of the Boston lineup means runs and RBIs galore thanks to his strong BB-rate. While he might not return draft value the rest of the season, fantasy owners can at least expect him to right the ship from here on out.
32 weeks ago
Jose Abreu Note
Jose Abreu photo 33. Jose Abreu 1B,DH - CWS
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.
33 weeks ago
Rhys Hoskins Note
Rhys Hoskins photo 34. Rhys Hoskins 1B,LF - PHI
You can say what you want about Hoskins' potential, and while it may be true, the fact of the matter is that he has never contributed in the batting average department and has actually been propped up quite a bit by batted ball luck to even keep him above .260. He will provide RBIs, runs and homers, of course, but is more of a sell candidate than a buy-low.
32 weeks ago
Adalberto Mondesi Note
Adalberto Mondesi photo 35. Adalberto Mondesi SS - KC
Mondesi has slowed down of late in both the power department and with his batting average dipping below .270 and now he is on the IL with a shoulder injury significant enough that it wouldn't be a surprise if he was shut down for the season.
30 weeks ago
Yasiel Puig Note
Yasiel Puig photo 36. Yasiel Puig RF - FA
Puig was borderline droppable just a month ago but he has quickly turned his season around and is now on track for 40 homers, 20 steals, 100 RBIs and is batting over .260. While that may not keep up, it wouldn't be a surprise either considering he is playing in Great American Ballpark.
32 weeks ago
Marcell Ozuna Note
Marcell Ozuna photo 37. Marcell Ozuna LF - ATL
Ozuna may currently be on the IL but he was terrific in the first half with a whopping 62 RBIs to go with both power (20 homers) and speed (8 steals). His batting average isn't, nor will it be ideal, but all of this still combines to make him a top 50 fantasy asset.
32 weeks ago
Pete Alonso Note
Pete Alonso photo 38. Pete Alonso 1B - NYM
Alonso hasn't been in the bigs long enough for pitchers to pinpoint his struggles and get a blueprint so a slump may come, but even if it did, we'd be looking at a top-ten fantasy first basemen at seasons end and with likely 45+ homers.
33 weeks ago
Tommy Pham Note
Tommy Pham photo 39. Tommy Pham LF,CF,DH - SD
Pham has not only managed to stay healthy so far this season, but his efficiency has actually improved as well. If he keeps it up, fantasy owners could be looking at a 30/20 season to go with another strong performance in the batting average department.
32 weeks ago
Josh Bell Note
Josh Bell photo 40. Josh Bell 1B - PIT
Bell's breakout has been legitimate with the underlying stats confirming that he is, in fact, one of the best hitters in baseball. Neither his .300 batting average nor his 45 homer pace are expected to slow down so don't get the idea to sell-high via trade.
33 weeks ago
Matt Chapman Note
Matt Chapman photo 41. Matt Chapman 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Carlos Correa Note
Carlos Correa photo 42. Carlos Correa SS - HOU
Correa was again playing great baseball for the Astros prior to his fractured rib which has held him out for two months. Now that he is coming back, he should quickly return to being a top 10 fantasy shortstop and top 50 fantasy asset overall.
32 weeks ago
Gary Sanchez Note
Gary Sanchez photo 43. Gary Sanchez C - NYY
Sanchez is in the clear-cut top tier of catchers with Realmuto, Contreras and Grandal. Although he won't help in batting average much, his power and the RBIs that will follow are what sets him apart as potentially the best fantasy catcher in baseball.
33 weeks ago
Michael Brantley Note
Michael Brantley photo 44. Michael Brantley LF,RF,DH - HOU
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.
32 weeks ago
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Note
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. photo 45. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 3B,DH - 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.
33 weeks ago
Justin Turner Note
Justin Turner photo 46. Justin Turner 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Khris Davis Note
Khris Davis photo 47. Khris Davis DH - OAK
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.
32 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson Note
Josh Donaldson photo 48. Josh Donaldson 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Michael Conforto Note
Michael Conforto photo 49. Michael Conforto LF,CF,RF - NYM
It now seems clear that Conforto will never be that star everyone expected him to become. If we can look past that disappointment, it's easy to accept a player on our roster who hits 30 homers with 10 steals, 90 RBIs and 90 runs even if it comes with a sub .250 batting average and that just so happens to be the pace Conforto is on.
32 weeks ago
Mike Moustakas Note
Mike Moustakas photo 50. Mike Moustakas 2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Nick Castellanos Note
Nick Castellanos photo 51. Nick Castellanos LF,RF - CIN
Castellanos isn't doing nearly as much this season for the Tigers as we have grown to expect from him. He may end up with 90 runs scored, but with no one else in the lineup, his RBIs are vastly behind what we've seen in the past. Likewise, his power is virtually non-existent.
32 weeks ago
Carlos Santana Note
Carlos Santana photo 52. Carlos Santana 1B,DH - CLE
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.
33 weeks ago
J.T. Realmuto Note
J.T. Realmuto photo 53. J.T. Realmuto C - PHI
Realmuto may be struggling so far compared to expectations, but he certainly hasn't hurt you with a BA over .270 to go with double-digit homers and a handful of steals. He may not be the top overall fantasy catcher but he could be in the secound half.
33 weeks ago
Jonathan Villar Note
Jonathan Villar photo 54. Jonathan Villar 2B,SS - MIA
Villar was excellent after the trade to Baltimore last season and hasn't slowed down this year. Going into the break, he already had double-digit homers and was on track for both 100 runs and 30 stolen bases. The batting average isn't killing fantasy owners either which is a major surprise.
33 weeks ago
Max Muncy Note
Max Muncy photo 55. Max Muncy 1B,2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Lorenzo Cain Note
Lorenzo Cain photo 56. Lorenzo Cain CF - MIL
After making a run at the NL MVP last season, Cain came with high hopes, but it turns out that he has been among the most frustrating players so far this season, going for just 5 gomers, 11 steals and a .253 average in the first half. Even so, he still deserves a roster spot, but perhaps not much longer.
32 weeks ago
Giancarlo Stanton Note
Giancarlo Stanton photo 57. Giancarlo Stanton LF,RF - NYY
With the AL East likely in the bag, the Yankees have been wise to hold off on rushing Stanton back. When he will finally return is anyone's guess, but when he does, you can expect a top 15 fantasy outfielder as always.
32 weeks ago
Yoan Moncada Note
Yoan Moncada photo 58. Yoan Moncada 2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Jean Segura Note
Jean Segura photo 59. Jean Segura SS - PHI
While Segura doesn't have elite power or speed, he is offering plenty of both to go along with a 100 run, 75 RBI pace and a solid batting average. All of that combined makes him a useful player worthy of seeing your starting lineup every day.
32 weeks ago
Jorge Polanco Note
Jorge Polanco photo 60. Jorge Polanco SS - MIN
Polanco was quite good last year but has taken it up another notch at the plate this season with a 20 homer pace and batting average well north of .300 heading into the break. With that said, he has been struggling of late and seems to have lost the 15 steal speed we figured he'd provide.
32 weeks ago
Victor Robles Note
Victor Robles photo 61. Victor Robles CF,RF - WSH
Robles didn't become an immediate star like many thought possible. That doesn't mean it can't happen in the second half, but more than likely, we are looking at someone who holds a .250 batting average with near 20 homers and 20 steals. That is useful for sure, but by no means a league-winner.
32 weeks ago
Corey Seager Note
Corey Seager photo 62. Corey Seager SS - LAD
It is incredible to think that just a few years ago, Seager was the Fernando Tatis of baseball with multiple MVPs surely in his future. Seager is still startable, of course, but by no means worthy of being called a star. Let this be a word of caution about breakout youngsters like Tatis and Kingery.
32 weeks ago
Daniel Murphy Note
Daniel Murphy photo 63. Daniel Murphy 1B,2B - COL
Unfortunately, Murphy is playing like a shell of his former self. There is even less power than before and his batting average has dropped south of .290. While that is still helpful and possible to increase, fantasy owners are right to be disappointed.
33 weeks ago
Austin Meadows Note
Austin Meadows photo 64. Austin Meadows LF,RF,DH - TB
This time last month, Meadows was all the rave and was considered a can't miss superstar. While he is still a nice asset, 25 homers, 15 steals and 70/80 runs and RBIs don't quite fit the description of a top 20 outfielder, let alone a top 5 guy.
32 weeks ago
Eloy Jimenez Note
Eloy Jimenez photo 65. Eloy Jimenez LF - CWS
For the most part, Jimenez has been a grand disappointment for fantasy owners who expected a.290 batting average with 30 homers as a rookie. The homers might come, but his approach at the plate isn't as polished as we all anticipated.
32 weeks ago
Elvis Andrus Note
Elvis Andrus photo 66. Elvis Andrus SS - TEX
After catching everyone off guard in 2017 with the #1 fantasy shortstop performance, Andrus took a huge step back last year. He seems to be back on track, however, with a 15/35 pace and a .300 batting average heading into the break.
32 weeks ago
Matt Olson Note
Matt Olson photo 67. Matt Olson 1B - OAK
If Olson hadn't been injured to start the year, he likely would have been a top 100 pick. Since returning from the IL, he has done nothing to change the narrative so he should continue to be treated as though he is that top 100 player.
33 weeks ago
Tim Anderson Note
Tim Anderson photo 68. Tim Anderson SS - CWS
Anderson came roaring back to earth after a blistering start for fantasy owners. He is now down to a .320 batting average and that figure it expected to drop south of .300 by season's end. With that said, we are still looking at a 15/20 guy with solid average so that will certainly play.
32 weeks ago
Max Kepler Note
Max Kepler photo 69. Max Kepler CF,RF - MIN
As odd as it is to imagine, Kepler just started playing baseball a decade ago so it should be no surprise that his breakout came a little late. It appears to be here to stay, however, and while the batting average and speed will never be a plus, 100 RBIs, 100 runs and 35 homers will certainly do the trick for fantasy owners.
32 weeks ago
Eduardo Escobar Note
Eduardo Escobar photo 70. Eduardo Escobar 2B,3B,SS - 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.
33 weeks ago
DJ LeMahieu Note
DJ LeMahieu photo 71. DJ LeMahieu 1B,2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Yasmani Grandal Note
Yasmani Grandal photo 72. Yasmani Grandal C,1B - CWS
Grandal's batting average may not seem all that appealing in the .240s range, but that is actually at replacement-level for the position so he won't hurt you there. He will definitely help in HRs, RBIs and runs, though. Over the last three seasons, he trails only (the injured) Salvador Perez in homers, and that was before he moved from an awful park for hitters in L.A. to a hitter's have in Milwaukee.
48 weeks ago
Luke Voit Note
Luke Voit photo 73. Luke Voit 1B,DH - NYY
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.
30 weeks ago
Edwin Encarnacion Note
Edwin Encarnacion photo 74. Edwin Encarnacion 1B,DH - CWS
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.
33 weeks ago
Joey Votto Note
Joey Votto photo 75. Joey Votto 1B - CIN
We can't rely on Votto for power any more, of course, but the batting average should return back closer to the .290 mark in the second half to go with plenty of runs thanks to his bonkers BB-rate. Don't drop Votto quite yet.
33 weeks ago
Eric Hosmer Note
Eric Hosmer photo 76. Eric Hosmer 1B - SD
Don't look now, but Hosmer is back to playing quite well again, hitting nearly .300 with some power for once. If you grabbed this bargain on draft day, you would do best to hang onto him rather than try to sell high on the trade market.
33 weeks ago
Domingo Santana Note
Domingo Santana photo 77. Domingo Santana LF,RF - CLE
Santana has cooled off since his incredible start, but he is still on track for 100 runs, 110 RBIs and 35 HRs while stealing some bases and maintaining a quality batting average. It may not quite keep up, but it goes without saying that fantasy owners will end the season having gotten an incredible value from him.
32 weeks ago
Trey Mancini Note
Trey Mancini photo 78. Trey Mancini 1B,LF,RF - BAL
There is nothing sexy about owning Trey Mancini, but he has rebounded quite nicely from his disappointing 2018 campaign. The underlying metrics suggest what we have seen in 2019 is the real Mancini so it wouldn't be wise to attempt selling high on him.
33 weeks ago
Franmil Reyes Note
Franmil Reyes photo 79. Franmil Reyes RF,DH - CLE
Franmil has been a sensation with 25 first-half homers despite playing half his games in San Diego. If he were to get dealt, his stock would sky rocket, but for now, he will continue to be held back by the park and getting a day or two off every week because of the Padres' outfield logjam.
32 weeks ago
Yordan Alvarez Note
Yordan Alvarez photo 80. Yordan Alvarez LF,DH - HOU
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.
32 weeks ago
A.J. Pollock Note
A.J. Pollock photo 81. A.J. Pollock LF,CF - LAD
Pollock has always produced when on the field but injuries have held him back quite a bit. This year, even the efficiency has taken a hit, and while he can still help fantasy teams, it isn't anywhere near as much as in previous seasons.
31 weeks ago
Yuli Gurriel Note
Yuli Gurriel photo 82. Yuli Gurriel 1B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Marcus Semien Note
Marcus Semien photo 83. Marcus Semien SS - OAK
Semien's batting average has been better than expected, and while it may come down over the rest of the season, his 25 homer pace with a handful of steals will certainly make him a worthwhile start for fantasy owners.
32 weeks ago
Willson Contreras Note
Willson Contreras photo 84. Willson Contreras C - CHC
Through the first half of baseball, Willson Contreras has been the top fantasy catcher with nearly 20 homers to go with 51 RBIs and a .286 batting average. As long as he can stay on the field, you've got a top 60 overall fantasy value in Contreras.
33 weeks ago
Paul DeJong Note
Paul DeJong photo 85. Paul DeJong SS - STL
DeJong had been one of the top fantasy shortstops over the first two months but has come crashing back down to earth and is now producing just about what everyone expected heading into the season with a 20 homer, 10 SB pace and a lackluster batting average.
32 weeks ago
Matt Carpenter Note
Matt Carpenter photo 86. Matt Carpenter 3B - 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.

Mallex Smith Note
Mallex Smith photo 87. Mallex Smith CF,RF - SEA
Mallex certainly isn't going to provide any pop or batting average support, but he scores enough runs to go with his 45 steal pace that he should start for every night for every fantasy team that owns him.

Jorge Soler Note
Jorge Soler photo 88. Jorge Soler RF,DH - KC
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.

Nomar Mazara Note
Nomar Mazara photo 89. Nomar Mazara RF - CWS
Mazara has only supplied 12 homers in the first half despite all his raw power. With that said, batting in the middle of the order for Texas definitely comes with his perks, as you can see with his 90 RBI, 90 run pace through the break.

Ryan Braun Note
Ryan Braun photo 90. Ryan Braun LF - MIL
As usual, Braun is dealing with injuries off and on, but getting the job done for fantasy owners while he is on the field. Going into the break, he carries a .271 average with a dozen homers and a handful of steals which is what we should expect in the second half too.
33 weeks ago
Ramon Laureano Note
Ramon Laureano photo 91. Ramon Laureano CF,RF - OAK
Believe it or not, Laureano is on pace for 30 homers, 20 steals and 100 runs. While that may not keep up, it is worth noting that he has performed as a top 50 fantasy asset thus far so even if he drops off a cliff, fantasy owners should keep running him out in their lineup every night.
32 weeks ago
Shin-Soo Choo Note
Shin-Soo Choo photo 92. Shin-Soo Choo LF,RF,DH - TEX
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.
32 weeks ago
Kyle Schwarber Note
Kyle Schwarber photo 93. Kyle Schwarber LF - CHC
No one is surprised by Schwarber's performance thus far as he is yet again, piling up runs and RBIs with a pace of 35 homers. All of that is great, of course, but the batting average is once again south of .240 so he doesn't offer much more value than a Randal Grichuk.
32 weeks ago
Dee Gordon Note
Dee Gordon photo 94. Dee Gordon 2B - SEA
Gordon won't steal 60 bases anymore and he clearly isn't a .300 hitter, but fantasy owners can still rely on him to offer nearly 30 steals with a batting average that won't kill you. Nothing about that is exciting, but he is still a worthwhile fantasy piece.
33 weeks ago
Adam Eaton Note
Adam Eaton photo 95. Adam Eaton LF,RF - WSH
Eaton is the same player we've always known him to be with a handful of steals, homers and tons of runs to go with a quality batting average. While there is nothing exciting about an asset like that, he is certainly worthy of a fantasy roster spot.
32 weeks ago
Hunter Renfroe Note
Hunter Renfroe photo 96. Hunter Renfroe LF,RF - TB
With Wil Myers struggling for the Padres, Renfroe has been playing nearly every day and it has paid off as he knocked 27 first-half bombs. Sure, the batting average isn't there, nor will it ever be, but fantasy owners will gladly welcome 45 dingers from a mid-season waiver wire addition.
32 weeks ago
Wilson Ramos Note
Wilson Ramos photo 97. Wilson Ramos C - NYM
The Mets haven't gotten as much out of Ramos in the first half as they may have expected but he is an extremely streaky hitter so it would be no surprise if his BA jumps from 270 to 300 in the second half to go with a dozen more homers. He is still a C1 without question.
33 weeks ago
Wil Myers Note
Wil Myers photo 98. Wil Myers 1B,3B,LF,CF - 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.
33 weeks ago
Amed Rosario Note
Amed Rosario photo 99. Amed Rosario SS - NYM
While it is true that Rosario has much untapped potential, he is still producing enough power and speed to help fantasy owners. The batting average may take a hit in the second half, but he is solid enough in the other four categories to make up for it.
32 weeks ago
Didi Gregorius Note
Didi Gregorius photo 100. Didi Gregorius SS - PHI
Didi has not quite gotten off to the start most fantasy owners hoped for when he came off the IL, but let's try to remember Lindor's struggles at first too. It is a long season and Didi is talented enough to surge back into a top 20 or even 15 fantasy shortstop before long.
32 weeks ago
Jesus Aguilar Note
Jesus Aguilar photo 101. Jesus Aguilar 1B - MIA
This time last year we were talking about Aguilar in the same light as we are with Ketel Marte today. It now appears clear, however, that he isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues.
33 weeks ago
C.J. Cron Note
C.J. Cron photo 102. C.J. Cron 1B - DET
Cron is dealing with a thumb injury heading into the break, but when he returns, fantasy owners are getting an excellent asset with 30+ homer power and a quality batting average to go with loads of RBIs in a top-notch Twins lineup.
33 weeks ago
Brian Dozier Note
Brian Dozier photo 103. Brian Dozier 2B - SD
Gone are the days where Dozier will flirt with 40 homers, but he still has sufficient power that outweighs his often lousy batting average. He is a useful fantasy asset in deeper leagues and one worth keeping an eye on in more shallow formats.
33 weeks ago
Ian Desmond Note
Ian Desmond photo 104. Ian Desmond 1B,LF,CF - COL
Although he isn't starting every game for the Rockeis, Desmond does play enough in Coors to warrant a roster spot on fantasy teams. Gone are the days where he will steal 20 bags, but he should be solid at worst in the other four standard categories.
33 weeks ago
Cesar Hernandez Note
Cesar Hernandez photo 105. Cesar Hernandez 2B - CLE
You may not feel sexy running Hernandez out there in your lineup every day, but as is always the case, Hernandez isn't making anyone regret spending a late round pick on his reliable production in all five categories.
33 weeks ago
Hunter Dozier Note
Hunter Dozier photo 106. Hunter Dozier 1B,3B,RF - 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.
33 weeks ago
Robinson Cano Note
Robinson Cano photo 107. Robinson Cano 2B - NYM
Cano was exceptional in 2018 when he wasn't suspended but apparently, he finally hit the wall towards the end of a player's career. Neither the batting average or power are here nor are the expected to return.
33 weeks ago
Miguel Sano Note
Miguel Sano photo 108. Miguel Sano 1B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Jonathan Schoop Note
Jonathan Schoop photo 109. Jonathan Schoop 2B - DET
It may not be the Schoop of old, but there is certainly value in what the Twins' second basemen has accomplished for fantasy owners thus far. He should finish the season with 25 homers while offering plenty of RBIs and runs thanks to everyday at-bats in the strong Twins' lineup.
33 weeks ago
Rougned Odor Note
Rougned Odor photo 110. Rougned Odor 2B - TEX
Odor did his thing for a while where he was a total trainwreck, and while the batting average is still below .200, he has started to play much better of late and is, as always, producing in both the homer and stolen base departments.
33 weeks ago
Joc Pederson Note
Joc Pederson photo 111. Joc Pederson 1B,LF,RF - LAD
Joc has already swatted 20 homers even though the Dodgers primarily only play him against right-handed pitchers. He will continue to produce while he is in the lineup, but the counting stats may not finish as high as others with his sort of pop.
32 weeks ago
Justin Smoak Note
Justin Smoak photo 112. Justin Smoak 1B,DH - MIL
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.
33 weeks ago
Keston Hiura Note
Keston Hiura photo 113. Keston Hiura 2B - MIL
It took long enough but the Brewers finally called Hiura back after he destroyed minor league pitching. The kid does not only have an excellent future, but he is polished and ready to provide fantasy owners vintage Robinson Cano like numbers.
33 weeks ago
Miguel Cabrera Note
Miguel Cabrera photo 114. Miguel Cabrera 1B,DH - DET
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.
33 weeks ago
Jesse Winker Note
Jesse Winker photo 115. Jesse Winker LF,CF,RF - CIN
Overall, Winker is merely a fringe fantasy asset, but if you can afford to use him correctly, you've got yourself a serious player. Winker is abysmal versus lefties, but terrorizes righties so be sure to check the probable opposing pitcher each day.
32 weeks ago
Christian Walker Note
Christian Walker photo 116. Christian Walker 1B - ARI
Walker has been streaky and volatile, but even so, he still managed to put together an impressive first half stat line with both power and a little speed. The batting average may drop south of .250 at some point, but he is still well worth starting even if that is the case.
33 weeks ago
Andrelton Simmons Note
Andrelton Simmons photo 117. Andrelton Simmons SS - LAA
Simmons has continued to be exactly what fantasy owners expected: a safe source of quality batting average with a little speed and not much more. There is a place on a fantasy roster for a player like that.if you are in a deeper league.
32 weeks ago
Scooter Gennett Note
Scooter Gennett photo 118. Scooter Gennett 2B - FA
Scooter missed the vast majority of the first half and hasn't quite been playing every day since returning from injury. With that said, he was so exceptional over his previous 1000 plate appearances that it should be considered only a matter of time before he returns to hitting like Freddie Freeman.
33 weeks ago
Dansby Swanson Note
Dansby Swanson photo 119. Dansby Swanson SS - ATL
You may not believe in the breakout, but every underlying metric suggests Swanson's breakout has been legitimate after years of disappointing optimistic fantasy owners. He should finish the year with 25 homers, a dozen steals and a solid batting average to go with loads of RBIs and runs.
32 weeks ago
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. Note
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. photo 120. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. 2B,SS,LF - TOR
Gurriel was so awful to open the season the Toronto sent him back to the minors. He responded by earning his job back then taking the league by storm. Heading into the break, he was one of the most exciting middle infielders in the game and that should continue throughout the remainder of the year.
33 weeks ago
Bo Bichette Note
Bo Bichette photo 121. Bo Bichette SS - TOR
Daniel Vogelbach Note
Daniel Vogelbach photo 122. Daniel Vogelbach 1B,DH - SEA
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.
33 weeks ago
Omar Narvaez Note
Omar Narvaez photo 123. Omar Narvaez C,DH - MIL
It is hard to imagine that anyone saw this coming, but Narvaz has been tremendous to open the season with a batting average near .300 and a dozen homers. While it may not continue at this pace, there is no doubt that he is a top 12 catcher from this point forward.
33 weeks ago
Mitch Garver Note
Mitch Garver photo 124. Mitch Garver C - MIN
Garver has been absolutely terrorizing pitchers with a .295 average and 13 homers in just 156 at-bats. If he played every day, Garver would be a top 5 fantasy catcher without a doubt, but because he doesn't, he is merely a fringe top-10 guy for now.
33 weeks ago
Scott Kingery Note
Scott Kingery photo 125. Scott Kingery 2B,3B,SS,LF,CF - 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.
32 weeks ago
Jurickson Profar Note
Jurickson Profar photo 126. Jurickson Profar 2B,SS,LF - SD
Profar has been downright awful this season for fantasy owners, batting just .212. With that said, he is still on track for 18 homers and double-digit steals so if he can turn the batting average around, we may have a fantasy impact player again.
33 weeks ago
Jackie Bradley Jr. Note
Jackie Bradley Jr. photo 127. Jackie Bradley Jr. CF - BOS
It is anyone's guess which Bradley we will get in the second half, whether it is the worst offensive player in baseball or a fringe all-star. We have seen both at times this year and in the past. For now, though, he is hot so don't hesitate to use him.
32 weeks ago
Danny Santana Note
Danny Santana photo 128. Danny Santana 1B,2B,3B,SS,LF,CF,RF - TEX
Among all the fantasy breakout players, Santana may be the biggest surprise with double-digit homers and steals in the first half to go with a batting average above .300. All of those numbers are likely to take a dip, but even with that being the case, he should still be owned in every league.
32 weeks ago
Kevin Kiermaier Note
Kevin Kiermaier photo 129. Kevin Kiermaier CF - TB
Kiermaier is quietly having an excellent season and may reach 20 homers to go with 30 steals by the time the season comes to a close. Health is always a concern with the way he plays in the field, but so long as he keeps playing every day, you've got to find a way to get Kiermaier in your fantasy lineup.
32 weeks ago
Ryan McMahon Note
Ryan McMahon photo 130. Ryan McMahon 1B,2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Brett Gardner Note
Brett Gardner photo 131. Brett Gardner LF,CF - NYY
Gardner is once again providing plenty of runs and RBIs for fantasy owners and just so happens to be on pace for 25 homers which off-sets his drop in steals that came with age. Fantasy owners can continue to rely on Gardner as a OF4.
32 weeks ago
Oscar Mercado Note
Oscar Mercado photo 132. Oscar Mercado LF,CF,RF - CLE
Jose Peraza Note
Jose Peraza photo 133. Jose Peraza 2B,SS,LF - BOS
Peraza broke out last season with 13 homers, 23 steals and a .288 batting average. Whether or not the power stays is a question, but he seems to be a safe source for runs, steals and batting average in the middle of drafts.
48 weeks ago
Jose Martinez Note
Jose Martinez photo 134. Jose Martinez 1B,RF - TB
Martinez hasn't provided fantasy owners much with a .282 batting average and just 6 homers, but all Statcast metrics suggest those numbers will come roaring up in the second half. It might be time to add him before it costs you a pretty penny.
33 weeks ago
Randal Grichuk Note
Randal Grichuk photo 135. Randal Grichuk CF,RF - TOR
As always, Grichuk is providing some pop to go with runs and RBIs. There is, of course, a batting average well below .250 to accompany the benefits in the other categories. This makes him a fringe candidate for a roster spot in standard-sized leagues.
32 weeks ago
Aristides Aquino Note
Aristides Aquino photo 136. Aristides Aquino RF - CIN
Avisail Garcia Note
Avisail Garcia photo 137. Avisail Garcia CF,RF,DH - MIL
One of the most underrated fantasy assets this year has been Garcia who entered the break with 12 homers, 9 steals, a 75/80 runs/RBIs pace and a solid .280 batting average. There is no reason he should still be available in 75% of leagues.
32 weeks ago
Renato Nunez Note
Renato Nunez photo 138. Renato Nunez 1B,3B,DH - 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.
33 weeks ago
Gio Urshela Note
Gio Urshela photo 139. Gio Urshela 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Kole Calhoun Note
Kole Calhoun photo 140. Kole Calhoun RF - ARI
Calhoun has outperformed expectations thus far with a Kyle Schwarber like line of 20+ homers with a lackluster batting average. He also carries a 100/90 runs/RBIs pace up into the break so don't hesitate to scoop him up if you still can.
32 weeks ago
Ender Inciarte Note
Ender Inciarte photo 141. Ender Inciarte CF - ATL
Maikel Franco Note
Maikel Franco photo 142. Maikel Franco 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Travis Shaw Note
Travis Shaw photo 143. Travis Shaw 2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Yadier Molina Note
Yadier Molina photo 144. Yadier Molina C - STL
Catcher's don't often get 450 trips to the plate, but Tadi has done it every year since 2008. As you can imagine, the runs and RBIs pile up with extra playing time, and it certainly helps that he increases your team's batting average and may add another 20 homers this season.
48 weeks ago
Brandon Nimmo Note
Brandon Nimmo photo 145. Brandon Nimmo LF,CF,RF - NYM
Nick Markakis Note
Nick Markakis photo 146. Nick Markakis LF,RF - ATL
As always, Markakis isn't providing much in the way of homers or steals, but his is on pace for 90 RBIs and 90 runs to go with another strong batting average. While that isn't a league-winner, he is giving fantasy teams exactly what they hoped for from him.
32 weeks ago
Danny Jansen Note
Danny Jansen photo 147. Danny Jansen C - TOR
Jansen's underlying stats have been screaming positive regression all season and over the last few weeks, it has started to turn around. While he isn't quite a top 12 catcher, he should be on your radar as a future waiver wire add if he keeps hitting.
33 weeks ago
Adam Jones Note
Adam Jones photo 148. Adam Jones CF,DH - FA
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.
32 weeks ago
Jay Bruce Note
Jay Bruce photo 149. Jay Bruce 1B,LF,RF - PHI
Most gave up on Bruce before the season because he was so awful in 2018, but he was struggling through plantar fasciitis. Now that he is healthy, Bruce just keeps mashing with 24 homers headed into the break. He is good bet to keep hitting if he can stay on the field.
33 weeks ago
Kolten Wong Note
Kolten Wong photo 150. Kolten Wong 2B - STL
For years, Wong has flashed excellent fantasy skills at times then proceeded to burn everyone who had the nerve to pick him up in the midst of his hot streak. There may be another flash left at some point this season, but you certainly can't count on much if you own Wong.
33 weeks ago
Buster Posey Note
Buster Posey photo 151. Buster Posey C - SF
Feel free to drop Buster at this point. He isn't likely to finish the season with double-digit homers and doesn't play in a good enough offense to tally up runs and RBIs like the top 15 fantasy catchers in baseball.
33 weeks ago
Manuel Margot Note
Manuel Margot photo 152. Manuel Margot CF - TB
Christian Vazquez Note
Christian Vazquez photo 153. Christian Vazquez C,1B - BOS
Vasquez is one of a handful of surprising catchers to breakout in the first half. Regardless of whether you believe it to be a fluke, he has been so good that even with some regression, he sneaks into the top 10 rest of season projections.
33 weeks ago
Evan Longoria Note
Evan Longoria photo 154. Evan Longoria 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Willy Adames Note
Willy Adames photo 155. Willy Adames SS - TB
There is no denying the potential in the Rays' young middle-infielder, but like Dansby Swanson over the past few seasons, he just isn't quite ready at the plate yet. You can still get a handful of steals and homers, but not enough to make up for his batting average.
33 weeks ago
Jorge Alfaro Note
Jorge Alfaro photo 156. Jorge Alfaro C - MIA
Alfaro was not technically a top 12 catcher in the first half, but he was right on the cusp and his underlying numbers suggest he will climb well into the top 10 over the rest of the season. Don't hesitate to add him and start him if you need a catcher.

Harrison Bader Note

J.D. Davis Note
J.D. Davis photo 158. J.D. Davis 3B,LF - 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.
33 weeks ago
Cavan Biggio Note
Cavan Biggio photo 159. Cavan Biggio 2B,RF - TOR
It is tempting to get excited when you hear Biggio's name, but he was not a top prospect by any stretch of the imagination and while he may provide some power and speed, the batting average will likely kill you.
33 weeks ago
Brandon Belt Note
Brandon Belt photo 160. Brandon Belt 1B,LF - SF
Belt has given fantasy owners reason to be disappointed for years now. Although he is never awful, it may finally be time to give up and cut him loose. There are plenty of other projects on the waivers with more fantasy upside like Bobby Bradley.
33 weeks ago
Austin Riley Note
Austin Riley photo 161. Austin Riley 3B,LF - 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.
33 weeks ago
Kevin Pillar Note

Jake Bauers Note
Jake Bauers photo 163. Jake Bauers 1B,LF,DH - CLE
Bauers hasn't turned it on yet, and although there is still promise that he will, it isn't worth banking on this year. Rather, target him as a post-hype buy next season.
33 weeks ago
Nate Lowe Note
Nate Lowe photo 164. Nate Lowe 1B - TB
Lowe didn't do much in his brief MLB debut and was thus sent back down to the minors. Since then, he has been batting .340 with bonkers power. He should be a hot pickup the moment Tampa calls him back up and may actually be worthy of a stash now.
33 weeks ago
Asdrubal Cabrera Note
Asdrubal Cabrera photo 165. Asdrubal Cabrera 2B,3B,SS - 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.
33 weeks ago
Billy Hamilton Note
Billy Hamilton photo 166. Billy Hamilton CF - SF
Hamilton is still swiping bases, but he is no longer elite in that category with just a 25 steal pace heading into the break. As always, his power and average are non-existant so he isn't even worthy of a roster spot at this point.
32 weeks ago
Kyle Seager Note
Kyle Seager photo 167. Kyle Seager 3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Jason Heyward Note
Jason Heyward photo 168. Jason Heyward CF,RF - CHC
As difficult as it may be to believe, Heyward is actually hitting quite well so far this season with a 25-homer pace and a batting average back up around .280. It might not be here to stay, but you can be sure that he is worthy of a roster spot in your fantasy league.
32 weeks ago
Starlin Castro Note
Starlin Castro photo 169. Starlin Castro 2B,3B - WSH
Castro is playing every game for Miami, but that is quite literally all you can say on the pro side of his performance. He doesn't offer power anymore and his batting average will continue to hover around .250 for the remainder of the season.
33 weeks ago
Kike Hernandez Note
Kike Hernandez photo 170. Kike Hernandez 2B,SS,LF,CF,RF - LAD
The batting average has devestated fantasy owners thus far in the first half and while it may come up, it won't be enough to warrant rostering Kike in a standard-sized league.

Ryan Zimmerman Note

Chris Taylor Note
Chris Taylor photo 174. Chris Taylor 2B,SS,LF,CF - LAD
Taylor hit the IL with a fractured wrist and while he isn't quite worth holding onto, he will be one to add once he returns to action for the Dodgers. As always, Taylor should provide some power and speed to go with a solid batting average and great counting stats because of the lineup he is in.
33 weeks ago
James McCann Note
James McCann photo 175. James McCann C - CWS
James McCann has been raking for the White Sox with a .320 batting average through the first half to go with some power and even the most steals among all catchers in fantasy. He is due to regress some, but is still a no-doubt top 12 catcher in the second half.

Mark Canha Note

David Fletcher Note
David Fletcher photo 177. David Fletcher 2B,3B,SS,LF - 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.
33 weeks ago
Leury Garcia Note
Leury Garcia photo 178. Leury Garcia SS,LF,CF,RF - CWS
Garcia isn't even going to finish the season with 10 homers, but he offers some speed and is on pace for 100 runs thanks to a quality .290 batting average and every day playing time for the White Sox. You can use him without regret although he won't be a world saver.
33 weeks ago
Yonder Alonso Note
Yonder Alonso photo 179. Yonder Alonso 1B,DH - ATL
Alonso wasn't especially impressive last year with a .250 batting average and just 23 homers, but he is just one year removed from posting an .866 OPS with Oakland and Seattle so don't discount a big bounce-back campaign.

Alex Gordon Note
Alex Gordon photo 181. Alex Gordon LF - KC
Despite his age, Gordon may be having a career year although he has seen regression over the last month. He may end up with 20 homers and 10 steals, but don't expect the batting average to stay north of .275 all season.

Nick Ahmed Note
Nick Ahmed photo 182. Nick Ahmed SS - ARI
There is nothing exciting about a shortstop who isn't plus in any of the five primary categories, but he is getting the job done so far with mediocre production in each area. Whether that keeps up is a question, of course, but for now, he can fill in during an injury.
32 weeks ago
Adam Frazier Note
Adam Frazier photo 183. Adam Frazier 2B - PIT
You can be certain that Frazier won't offer any power or speed, but 80 homers and a .280 batting average never hurt anyone. If you need a warm body to fill in for an injured player, he can answer the call without pain.

Dyson is by no means a power hitter with just 5 first-half homers and 18 RBIs, but he is what everyone wanted out of Billy Hamilton with 20 steals, 40 runs and a bad, but not terrible batting average. Judging by the demand for steals, Dyson is well worth scooping up.

Bryan Reynolds Note
Bryan Reynolds photo 185. Bryan Reynolds LF,CF,RF - PIT
Reynolds has been phenomenal from a batting average standpoint, batting .348 through the second half. Beyond that, however, he offers virtually nothing and we surely can't lean on him to maintain a batting average even north of .300 the rest of the way.

Jake Lamb Note
Jake Lamb photo 187. Jake Lamb 1B,3B - 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.

Robinson Chirinos Note
Robinson Chirinos photo 189. Robinson Chirinos C - TEX
Chirinos will hurt you in batting average, although not as bad as someone like Zunino. With that said, he is a reliable source of power and since he plays in such a strong Astros' lineup, you can bank on him piling up RBIs and runs as well.

Garrett Hampson Note
Garrett Hampson photo 190. Garrett Hampson 2B,SS,CF - COL
More than likely, Hampson won't get his job back as the Rockies' primary second baseman. Even with injury, he may be third on the depth chart. With that said, if for whatever reason he does find his way into at-bats, he'll be worth monitoring as a potential pickup.

Will Smith Note
Will Smith photo 191. Will Smith C - LAD
Smith has been unbelievable for the Dodgers and while there is a chance he continues to amaze fantasy owners, it is more likely that he follows the vast majority of rookies who started amazing before going south.

Carson Kelly Note
Carson Kelly photo 192. Carson Kelly C - ARI
Kelly is smashing MLB pitchers the last month and while he is a former top prospect, the sample size is not enough to trust him as a reliable fantasy option yet. The upside is still quite high, however, so he is a top 12 rest of season option for the time being.

Kyle Tucker Note
Kyle Tucker photo 193. Kyle Tucker LF,RF - HOU
Tucker is still stuck down in the minors for Houston and while playing time will be difficult to come by apart from a trade, he would be a 100% FAAB pickup if he gets the call and is inserted into the starting lineup. Think Andrew Benintendi right away with both power and speed.

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.

Eric Thames Note
Eric Thames photo 196. Eric Thames 1B,RF - WSH
Thames has shown flashes of all that pop we got in 2017 during his breakout campaign but the Brewers just aren't playing him enough to make much of a fantasy impact. He belongs on your waiver wire speed dial, however.

Matt Kemp Note
Matt Kemp photo 197. Matt Kemp LF - MIA
Kemp is not playing nearly as often as those who drafted him had hoped. While there is a chance that changes, he can be safely released in standard-sized leagues until he begins getting regular at-bats.

Luis Urias Note
Luis Urias photo 199. Luis Urias 2B,SS - MIL
Urias was rough in his debut, but don't give up on him quite yet. Rather, he is among the top stashes remaining in the minor leagues. When he does get another chance, he will be worth owning in most leagues assuming the Padres or his new team (via trade) gives him a chance.

Josh Reddick Note
Josh Reddick photo 201. Josh Reddick LF,CF,RF - HOU
Reddick continues to play every day for the Astros despite Kyle Tucker waiting around in the minors. Reddick isn't bad with a .291 average and decent power, but that may not be enough to hold off the kid in the second-half of the year.

Anthony Santander Note

Todd Frazier Note
Todd Frazier photo 203. Todd Frazier 3B - 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.

Kevin Newman Note
Kevin Newman photo 206. Kevin Newman 2B,SS - PIT
Neman's .326 batting average entering the break sure is exciting, but underlying metrics suggest that will come plummeting down before long, and when it does, all you've got is mediocre power and speed. While you can still play him, he shouldn't be regarded as safe quite yet.
32 weeks ago
Jeimer Candelario Note
Jeimer Candelario photo 207. Jeimer Candelario 1B,3B - 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.

Travis d'Arnaud Note
Travis d'Arnaud photo 208. Travis d'Arnaud C,1B - ATL
d'Arnaud is extraordinarily hot over the past month and while it may not keep up, he has always possessed this type of potential so it wouldn't be surprising if this was a start of a major breakout.

Raimel Tapia Note
Raimel Tapia photo 210. Raimel Tapia LF,CF - COL
Tapia will never be a source of much power or speed, but as long as he continues to play in Coors, his batting average will suffice if you are desperate for a warm body in your fantasy outfield.

Dwight Smith Jr. Note
Dwight Smith Jr. photo 211. Dwight Smith Jr. LF - BAL
Garrett Cooper Note
Garrett Cooper photo 212. Garrett Cooper 1B,LF,RF - MIA
While there isn't much help in the Marlins' offense, Cooper has been playing well enough that fantasy owners can mostly ignore the RBIs, runs and lack and speed. His batting average and power will both play and appear to be legitimate.
32 weeks ago
Welington Castillo Note
Welington Castillo photo 213. Welington Castillo C,DH - WSH
Castillo only saw 49 games worth of action last season, but his bat was still quality when he played. Over the last five years, he averages 26 homers with a .261 BA and 85 RBIs per 162 games, so now that he is starting, fantasy owners can expect useful production out of him.

Chance Sisco Note
Chance Sisco photo 215. Chance Sisco C - BAL
Sisco should play every day for the Orioles in the second half and he has plenty of talent so you'll want to keep a close eye on him as a potential catcher pickup off waivers.

Howie Kendrick Note
Howie Kendrick photo 216. Howie Kendrick 1B,2B,3B - 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.
33 weeks ago
Kendrys Morales Note
Kendrys Morales photo 217. Kendrys Morales 1B,DH - FA
Derek Dietrich Note
Derek Dietrich photo 218. Derek Dietrich 1B,2B,LF - CIN
The batting average has come crashing down and his power has completely halted to go along with the playing time. With that said, he was so exceptional for a stretch that you can make a case for stashing him until he comes out of it and mashes again.

Christin Stewart Note

Roberto Perez Note
Roberto Perez photo 221. Roberto Perez C - CLE
Perez has already mashed 16 homers through the first half for Cleveland. His batting average isn't useful, but won't kill you either so you could certainly do much worse than Perez even if he does take a step back toward expectations in the second half.

Tucker Barnhart Note
Tucker Barnhart photo 224. Tucker Barnhart C - CIN
Barnhart doesn't have the best bat, but his elite defense will keep him on the field for nearly 500 at-bats again. In a killer Red's lineup, that should be plenty to get him the counting stats he needs to be draftable.

Sogard has been a pleasant surprise this year with a batting average near 300 and both some power and speed. It's a risk to rely on that continuing, but there is more hope than many other options on your waiver wire in the middle infield.

Freddy Galvis photo 231. Freddy Galvis 2B,SS - CIN
Galis has performed admirably thus far with a 25 homer pace to go with a solid batting average and plenty of RBIs and runs. Even if he takes a sizeable step back, fantasy owners would still have someone they can rely on.
32 weeks ago
Jed Lowrie Note
Jed Lowrie photo 232. Jed Lowrie 2B - NYM
Lowrie has been on the IL all season and just suffered another setback. Even if and when he returns to action, fantasy owners shouldn't pay any attention.

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.

Orlando Arcia Note
Orlando Arcia photo 244. Orlando Arcia SS - MIL
There is no doubt that Arcia has potential for much more, but that doesn't mean fantasy owners should continue to run him out there while he bats .230 or worse. There is some power and will be a handful of steals but that isn't quite enough to justify using him quite yet.

Suzuki isn't playing every day quite yet, but when he does play, he'll be helping your fantasy squad with both power (11 HR in 163 AB through the first half) and batting average which is sitting at .270. That is enough to warrant a starting catcher spot in 12-team leagues.
