Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Yasiel Puig photo 36. Yasiel Puig RF
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.
21 weeks ago
Marcell Ozuna photo 37. Marcell Ozuna LF
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.
21 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson photo 48. Josh Donaldson 3B,DH
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.
22 weeks ago
Nicholas Castellanos photo 51. Nicholas Castellanos RF
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.
22 weeks ago
Edwin Encarnacion photo 74. Edwin Encarnacion 1B,DH
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.
22 weeks ago
Domingo Santana photo 77. Domingo Santana RF
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.
21 weeks ago
C.J. Cron photo 102. C.J. Cron 1B,DH
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.
22 weeks ago
Brian Dozier photo 103. Brian Dozier 2B
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.
22 weeks ago
Cesar Hernandez photo 105. Cesar Hernandez 2B
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.
22 weeks ago
Justin Smoak photo 112. Justin Smoak 1B,DH
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.
22 weeks ago
Scooter Gennett photo 118. Scooter Gennett 2B
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.
22 weeks ago
Avisail Garcia photo 137. Avisail Garcia RF
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.
21 weeks ago
Kole Calhoun photo 140. Kole Calhoun RF
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.
22 weeks ago
Maikel Franco photo 142. Maikel Franco 3B
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.
22 weeks ago
Travis Shaw photo 143. Travis Shaw 1B,3B,2B
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.
22 weeks ago
Adam Jones photo 148. Adam Jones CF,DH
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.
22 weeks ago
Asdrubal Cabrera photo 165. Asdrubal Cabrera 2B,3B,SS
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.
22 weeks ago
Billy Hamilton photo 166. Billy Hamilton CF
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.
22 weeks ago
Starlin Castro photo 169. Starlin Castro 2B
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.
22 weeks ago
Ryan Zimmerman photo 171. Ryan Zimmerman 1B
Zimmerman had his run as a useful fantasy baseball player but it seems to be over at this point so go ahead and cut him loose for one of the better options on waivers.
22 weeks ago
Yonder Alonso photo 179. Yonder Alonso 1B
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.
37 weeks ago
Alex Gordon photo 181. Alex Gordon LF,CF
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.
22 weeks ago
Jarrod Dyson photo 184. Jarrod Dyson CF,RF
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.
22 weeks ago
Robinson Chirinos photo 189. Robinson Chirinos C
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.
22 weeks ago
Jung Ho Kang photo 195. Jung Ho Kang 3B
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.
37 weeks ago
Eric Thames photo 196. Eric Thames 1B,LF,RF
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.
22 weeks ago
Mitch Moreland photo 200. Mitch Moreland 1B
Todd Frazier photo 203. Todd Frazier 3B
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.
22 weeks ago
Welington Castillo photo 213. Welington Castillo C
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.
37 weeks ago
Kendrys Morales photo 217. Kendrys Morales 1B,DH
Wilmer Flores photo 222. Wilmer Flores 1B,2B,3B
Eric Sogard photo 228. Eric Sogard 2B,SS
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.

Ben Zobrist photo 272. Ben Zobrist 2B,LF,RF
Logan Forsythe photo 273. Logan Forsythe 2B,3B
Chris Iannetta photo 276. Chris Iannetta C
Iannetta has been getting only 30% of the playing time for Colorado, and while he is playing well, that isn't enough to warrant rostering him in fantasy.

Tyler Austin photo 285. Tyler Austin 1B,DH

Jose Iglesias photo 290. Jose Iglesias SS
Addison Russell photo 294. Addison Russell SS
Melky Cabrera photo 303. Melky Cabrera RF
Once again, Melky is helping fantasy owners with a batting average north of .300 and not much more in any category. You can make a case for using a player like that, but for the most part, he should be reserved as an injury fill-in, not a long-term solution.
