Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2018 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Mike Trout photo 1. Mike Trout CF,DH - LAA
Once again, Trout is having a historically impressive season. With that said, Jose Ramirez has done enough this year that Trout is no longer the surefire number one pick for 2019. In fact, Mookie Betts is right on his tail too.

Mookie Betts photo 2. Mookie Betts CF,RF - BOS
Mookie is on pace for one of the best fantasy seasons of all time, with 50 homers, 40 stolen bases. 180 runs scored and a .364 batting average. Scratch that, the best ever. At this point, if you could trade Mike Trout for him, you ought to do it.

Nolan Arenado photo 3. Nolan Arenado 3B - COL
As always, Arenado has been exceptional offensively. He may very well be playing himself into an MVP award despite the Rockies being set to make the playoffs. Somehow, there may be even more to come over the second half.
13 weeks ago
Max Scherzer photo 4. Max Scherzer SP - WSH
Jose Altuve photo 5. Jose Altuve 2B - HOU
Altuve has produced just 2 homers and 2 steals through a quarter of the season, and we know very well that both of those numbers will spike quickly. The batting average is almost certain to come up as well. Perhaps you can acquire him for far cheaper than he is worth via trade.
22 weeks ago
Bryce Harper photo 6. Bryce Harper CF,RF - WSH
The power is still there with Harper, but many are panicking about his .236 batting average. If that is you, stop and take a look at his .198 BABIP, then consider that with his exit velocities and launch angle, that average is entirely unsustainable. He will surely finish north of .270 for the season.
22 weeks ago
Manny Machado photo 7. Manny Machado 3B,SS - LAD
It isn't recommended that you sell Machado high at this point. He is in a contract year and realizing his potential so this is likely not a fluke. Ride the improvement the rest of the season.
25 weeks ago
J.D. Martinez photo 8. J.D. Martinez LF,RF,DH - BOS
It should be no surprise that Martinez is having such a tremendous season, he batted over .300 each of the past three seasons with more HR/PA than Giancarlo Stanton last year. As it stands now, he may be a top 5 fantasy baseball player overall.
22 weeks ago
Freddie Freeman photo 9. Freddie Freeman 1B,3B - ATL
So long as Freeman doesn't end up with a flukey injury again this season, he should now be regarded as the top fantasy first basemen ahead of Rizzo, Votto and even Goldschmidt. Freeman should end with near 35 homers, 10 steals and a batting average well over .300.
16 weeks ago
Charlie Blackmon photo 10. Charlie Blackmon CF - COL
Blackmon has been nowhere near as useful this season as last year, but that doesn't mean his career is on the downward. There is still a chance he performs as the top overall fantasy baseball player over the second half just like he did for all of 2017.
12 weeks ago
Corey Kluber photo 11. Corey Kluber SP - CLE
Jose Ramirez photo 12. Jose Ramirez 2B,3B - CLE
In case you have been living under a rock, Ramirez is having one of the greatest fantasy baseball seasons of all-time and may finish with 50 homers, 35 steals and a batting average over .300. If next year's drafts were today, he might go first overall even above Trout.
13 weeks ago
Paul Goldschmidt photo 13. Paul Goldschmidt 1B - ARI
Goldschmidt has started the find his power stroke, but the steals have disappeared this season and his batting average is lacking. He is still a clear-cut top 20 fantasy player and top 3 first basemen, but no longer seems to be a first round talent.
16 weeks ago
Francisco Lindor photo 14. Francisco Lindor SS - CLE
Lindor has been phenomenal this season and is showing no signs of slowing down. Don't be surprised if he finishes the year with a remarkable 45 homers along with much more from all of the other fantasy categories.
13 weeks ago
Trea Turner photo 15. Trea Turner SS - WSH
Turner hasn't been the top five fantasy player many expected, but he may still finish with 20 homers and 40 steals, which clearly makes him no slouch. If he wants to return top 20 value, however, we will need to see the batting average soar over the second-half.
13 weeks ago
Giancarlo Stanton photo 16. Giancarlo Stanton LF,RF,DH - NYY
Stanton has been a disappointment, but don't forget that Manny Machado and Anthony Rizzo had terrible starts to their 2017 seasons before bouncing back in a major way. Stanton will too so do not sell him low.
25 weeks ago
Carlos Correa photo 17. Carlos Correa SS - HOU
Correa wasn't doing a ton before he went on the DL, but keep in mind that he has MVP type upside at the plate. He should not be sold low and if you do not own him, don't hesitate to feel out the other owner to see if you can land him at a discount.
13 weeks ago
Justin Verlander photo 18. Justin Verlander SP - HOU
Joey Votto photo 19. Joey Votto 1B - CIN
Votto's power hasn't quite picked up this season, as he is on pace for fewer than 20 homers. keep in mind, however, that he is notoriously a tremendous second-half player. You may be able to get him at a discount on the trade market.
16 weeks ago
Anthony Rizzo photo 20. Anthony Rizzo 1B,2B - CHC
Don't panic and sell Rizzo for half of what he is worth. Just take a look at how his season started last year and where his final numbers ended up and you'll feel significantly better about his slow start in 2018.
25 weeks ago
Jacob deGrom photo 21. Jacob deGrom SP - NYM
Chris Sale photo 22. Chris Sale SP - BOS
Clayton Kershaw photo 23. Clayton Kershaw SP - LAD
George Springer photo 24. George Springer CF,RF,DH - HOU
Springer has been a disappointment to fantasy owners so you may be able to pick him up via trade before your league's deadline. While he might not hit 35 homers or bat .270, his second half expectactions are still that of a top 12 fantasy outfielder.
12 weeks ago
Kris Bryant photo 25. Kris Bryant 3B,RF - CHC
Bryant has not exactley been bad, but based on where fantasy owners selected him, they have to be kicking themselves. You'd have to think he will pick up some more homers in the second half, but even then he would still finish below 25.
13 weeks ago
Luis Severino photo 26. Luis Severino SP - NYY
Andrew Benintendi photo 27. Andrew Benintendi LF,CF - BOS
Benintendi seems to be the only Boston hitter who isn't off to a great start. He will eventually get his numbers back on track, however, so don't start getting the idea to sell him.
25 weeks ago
Aaron Judge photo 28. Aaron Judge RF,DH - NYY
Judge is bound to hit about 40 homers with well over 100 runs and 100 RBIs. He is even stealing a few bases and keeping the batting average up around .280. If he can continue to do this the remainder of the year, we are looking at a first round pick next season.
12 weeks ago
Starling Marte photo 29. Starling Marte LF,CF - PIT
Marte has hit the DL with an oblique strain and will likely miss a few weeks as a result. He has been phenomenal this season as part of the surprisingly great Pirates' offense. Expect more of the same when he returns.
22 weeks ago
Christian Yelich photo 30. Christian Yelich LF,CF,RF - MIL
Yelich may not be the greatest source of power, but he will finish the season with both 20 homers and 20 steals while batting over .300 and scoring over 100 runs. That is a top 10 outfielder without question and there is no sign of regression coming.
12 weeks ago
Noah Syndergaard photo 31. Noah Syndergaard SP - NYM
Cody Bellinger photo 32. Cody Bellinger 1B,LF,CF - LAD
Bellinger has not had the most impressive start to the season, and while there is something to the sophomore slump theory, it is more likely that Bellinger will just heat up as the weather does. As of Mid-May, he is among the best buy-low candidates in all of fantasy baseball.
22 weeks ago
Jose Abreu photo 33. Jose Abreu 1B,DH - CWS
Abreu has slowed down a bit since his blazing start, but he is reliable enough that you can now consider him above players like Bellinger, Encarnacion and Hoskins who were all drafted ahead of him in fantasy leagues.
16 weeks ago
Alex Bregman photo 34. Alex Bregman 3B,SS - HOU
After starting incredibly slow for the second year in a row, Bregman has begun to turn his season around of late. He is among the best buy-low candidates in fantasy baseball right now and we can expect somewhere in the neighborhood of a 20/20 season with a useful batting average.
22 weeks ago
Rhys Hoskins photo 35. Rhys Hoskins 1B,LF - PHI
Hoskins has been nowhere close to the same player we saw at stretches in the second half last season. Rather, the batting average is lackluster and the power is merely mediocre. This is more in line with what you ought to expect the remainder of the season.
16 weeks ago
Brian Dozier photo 36. Brian Dozier 2B - LAD
There is a chance Dozier gets dealt before the deadline, most likely to the Brewers. If that were to happen, his stock would take a major leap forward, as the ballpark is better suited for power hitters and the lineup will help him generate more RBIs and runs.
13 weeks ago
Nelson Cruz photo 37. Nelson Cruz RF,DH - SEA
Cruz is no longer at the top of his game, but that doesn't mean he has fallen off the table like Jose Bautista and others did. Rather, Cruz should still hit 35 homers with near 100 RBIs and a decent bating average.
12 weeks ago
Stephen Strasburg photo 38. Stephen Strasburg SP - WSH
Anthony Rendon photo 39. Anthony Rendon 3B - WSH
Rendon has been missing time with a toe injury, but with the Nationals placing him on the DL, it seems as though they will not allow the issue to linger. Perhaps you can buy him low with his owner probably panicked.
25 weeks ago
Justin Upton photo 40. Justin Upton LF,DH - LAA
Upton doesn't have much help in the Angels lineup outside of Trout and he won't help you in batting average at all, but chances are, you will gladly take 35 homers and 90 RBIs. That is what Upton should give you for this final stat-line this year.
12 weeks ago
Dee Gordon photo 41. Dee Gordon 2B,CF - SEA
Gordon is finally starting to bounce back, now bringing the average up to .280. By the end of the year, it may approach .300, which with 40+ steals would make him an excellent fantasy middle infielder, just not quite as much as we were all expecting.
13 weeks ago
Khris Davis photo 42. Khris Davis LF,DH - OAK
Davis has the low batting average, like always, but is somehow on pace for 50 homers and 140 RBIs. Neither of those numbers will likely hold, but it goes without saying that he has been an incredibly useful fantasy asset thus far.
22 weeks ago
Carlos Carrasco photo 43. Carlos Carrasco SP - CLE
Zack Greinke photo 44. Zack Greinke SP - ARI
Aaron Nola photo 45. Aaron Nola SP - PHI
Gerrit Cole photo 46. Gerrit Cole SP - HOU
Edwin Encarnacion photo 47. Edwin Encarnacion 1B,DH - CLE
Typically, it makes no sense to sell a star who started their season slowly, but in this particular case it may actually be reasonable. At his old age, there is no guarantee he will bounceback so don't hesitate to feel out the trade market to see what you might be able to get.
25 weeks ago
Ozzie Albies photo 48. Ozzie Albies 2B - ATL
Albies was a favorite breakout candidate by many in the fantasy, and while it looks great so far, he is almost certainly not going to keep up Carlos Correa type numbers for the full season. Expect him to fall back quite a bit, and maximize on his trade value if you are able.
25 weeks ago
Lorenzo Cain photo 49. Lorenzo Cain CF - MIL
Cain may remarkably finish the season with fewer than 50 RBIs and his 15 homer pace isn't anything to write home about, but he has been tremendous in the other three primary categories and for that, he should be regarded as a top 20 fantasy outfielder for now.
12 weeks ago
Marcell Ozuna photo 50. Marcell Ozuna LF - STL
As the weather heats up, so too will Ozuna's bat. Don't be quick to try getting rid of him via trade. However, if you don't own him, now is the time to try to pounce on a disappointed owners misfortune.
25 weeks ago
James Paxton photo 51. James Paxton SP - SEA
Jean Segura photo 52. Jean Segura SS - SEA
The batting average has been exceptional from Segura and he may challenge for the league lead by the end of the season if he keeps it up. A 25 stolen base pace doesn't hurt either. At this rate, he looks to be a top 50 fantasy pick in next season's drafts.
13 weeks ago
Gary Sanchez photo 53. Gary Sanchez C,DH - NYY
Although Sanchez is on the DL and hitting like garbage so far this season, the catcher position is such a wasteland in fantasy that he may still be the top catcher for the remainder of the season. Continue to start him regardless of your league settings when he returns.
16 weeks ago
Craig Kimbrel photo 54. Craig Kimbrel RP - BOS
A.J. Pollock photo 55. A.J. Pollock CF - ARI
Pollock will miss around six weeks thanks to a thumb injury sustained from diving. This might be your opportunity to acquire a player who was on pace for a 40/35 season before the injury. He is among the top 15 fantasy players when he is healthy.
22 weeks ago
Kenley Jansen photo 56. Kenley Jansen RP - LAD
Jansen is not going to lose his job so don't go picking up Josh Fields. You ought to be concerned, however, as his terrible performance may be a sign of something wrong with his arm. Sell him now if you still can for a good price.
25 weeks ago
Madison Bumgarner photo 57. Madison Bumgarner SP - SF
Xander Bogaerts photo 58. Xander Bogaerts SS - BOS
Many expected Bogaerts to be among the top players at the position this season, and while he hasn't been bad, there is no question that several have passed him up. If 2018 drafts were today, he'd merely be a fringe top 100 pick.
13 weeks ago
Eddie Rosario photo 59. Eddie Rosario LF,CF,RF - MIN
If you are wondering whether or not you can trust what Rosario is doing so far, the answer is yes. He was exceptional last season and may not have come into his prime yet. We might see 30 homers, 15 steals and a batting average near .300 by the time the season closes.
22 weeks ago
Ronald Acuna photo 60. Ronald Acuna LF,CF - ATL
Acuna has not been the world beater since his call up that everyone expected. He certainly hasn't been terrible, but if he continues to slide backward, be ready to make a trade offer to a disappointed owner. He's got loads of value the remainder of the season.
21 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson photo 61. Josh Donaldson 3B,DH - CLE
Eventually Donaldson will be back on the field, likely by early August, and when he does return, don't expect the .230 batting average to continue. More likely, he will return to being a tremendous offensive asset, but maybe a step below what we've been used to seeing.
13 weeks ago
Javier Baez photo 62. Javier Baez 2B,3B,SS - CHC
We've been waiting for the breakout for a few seasons and when it finally seemed like it might never come, Baez decided to break out. What he has been doing so far appears to be legitimate so don't attempt to sell him high.
25 weeks ago
Travis Shaw photo 63. Travis Shaw 3B - MIL
The batting average is merely mediocre for Shaw this season, but when he is on pace for 90 RBIs, 80 runs and 30 homers, you can forgive him for a minor annoyance in one category. His second half is likely to look similar to what we've seen so far.
13 weeks ago
Wil Myers photo 64. Wil Myers 1B,LF,RF - SD
Myers has been on the DL most of the season, but is apparently back to good now. Let's not so quickly forget that his talent had many selecting him within the first 50 picks of fantasy drafts this spring. Don't hesitate to put a trade offer in to see if you can find a bargain.
16 weeks ago
Tommy Pham photo 65. Tommy Pham LF,CF - TB
Just because Pham is off to a killer start doesn't mean it is wise to sell him. This is what he did last year as well and he received MVP votes as a result. Get used to seeing Pham as one of the best fantasy outfielders in baseball.
25 weeks ago
Nicholas Castellanos photo 66. Nicholas Castellanos 3B,RF - DET
Castellanos may not be in a good lineup, but his batted ball rates have been incredible. He may be worth acquiring via trade before the weather heats up and all these balls fly out of the yard.
25 weeks ago
Daniel Murphy photo 67. Daniel Murphy 1B,2B - CHC
Daniel Murphy is back in the bigs now and is struggling but it shouldn't last too long. If you are in need of a middle infielder, put a feeler out there for Murphy, who his owner might not remember is Jose Altuve minus the steals in fantasy baseball.
13 weeks ago
Andrew McCutchen photo 68. Andrew McCutchen CF,RF - NYY
McCutchen has been a tremendous disappointment this season with a sub-standard batting average and lack of both steals and power. He may kick it into gear to close to season like we saw last year but he may not be a top 100 fantasy player any more.
22 weeks ago
Edwin Diaz photo 69. Edwin Diaz RP - SEA
Trevor Story photo 70. Trevor Story SS - COL
Story is not hitting for much in the way of batting average, but he is on pace for a 30/30 season which would be tremendous for a shortstop. Fantasy owners can deal with a batting average in the 240s with that kind of power/speed combo.
25 weeks ago
Whit Merrifield photo 71. Whit Merrifield 1B,2B,CF,RF,DH - KC
It doesn't seem as though Merrifield will lead the league in stealing again this year, but 30 is a possibility, which paired with a .300 average and plenty of runs makes him a top 100 fantasy asset, just as he was expected to be heading into drafts.
13 weeks ago
Aroldis Chapman photo 72. Aroldis Chapman RP - NYY
Chris Archer photo 73. Chris Archer SP - PIT
Carlos Martinez photo 74. Carlos Martinez SP - STL
Eugenio Suarez photo 75. Eugenio Suarez 3B - CIN
Suarez has been one of the biggest breakout players over the last calendar year. This season, he is on pace for well over 100 RBIs, 30 homers and is batting .312. Whatever you do, don't even consider selling him high, since this is where his value will likely stay.
13 weeks ago
Eric Hosmer photo 76. Eric Hosmer 1B - SD
Hosmer has been quite literally the worst offensive player in baseball for an extended period. He will surely turn it around, but is nowhere close to where he once was. He is on the fringe of being drop-worthy at this point.
14 weeks ago
Charlie Morton photo 77. Charlie Morton SP - HOU
Jose Berrios photo 78. Jose Berrios SP - MIN
Berrios had four terrible starts and still somehow has a WHIP under 1.00. He will kill your team every now and then, but he is also on the verge of becoming a true ace. Don't be afraid to start him each time out. It will pay off in the long run.
22 weeks ago
Mike Moustakas photo 79. Mike Moustakas 3B,DH - MIL
While Moose isn't hitting for average, the power has shown up once again and he should end north of 30 homers. There is a chance for quite a bit more, however, if he were to be dealt at the deadline to a team with a ballpark more conducive to homers than Kansas City.
13 weeks ago
Jonathan Schoop photo 80. Jonathan Schoop 2B - MIL
Now that Schoop is back from injury, he should yet again be regarded as a top 100 overall player for the rest of the season. Sure, he has struggled in every part of the game, but that 13 homer pace is likely to end up around 25 with a respectable batting average.
22 weeks ago
Robbie Ray photo 81. Robbie Ray SP - ARI
Ray owners have been worried that even when Ray returns from his oblique injury that he will struggle again. The reason he was struggling, however, may have been because he was pitching through it. Try to buy low now before he bounces back.
21 weeks ago
Blake Snell photo 82. Blake Snell SP - TB
Didi Gregorius photo 83. Didi Gregorius SS - NYY
Gregorius has taken significant steps forward over his last 50 games, and the power seems legitimately here to stay. With that said, he still has some work to do before he catches the Seagers and Lindors of the first tier.
25 weeks ago

Dallas Keuchel photo 85. Dallas Keuchel SP - HOU
Masahiro Tanaka photo 86. Masahiro Tanaka SP - NYY
Michael Brantley photo 87. Michael Brantley LF,DH - CLE
While it never seems to last long, Brantley is healthy and when he is healthy, he should be owned in every league. He is a good bet to bat over .300 with both a hint of power and speed.
25 weeks ago
Kyle Hendricks photo 88. Kyle Hendricks SP - CHC
Mitch Haniger photo 89. Mitch Haniger CF,RF - SEA
Haniger is beginning to slow down, but still on pace to hit 40 homers and bat near .300. Both should continue to see some regression, but there is no denying the fact that he is among the most improved hitters in baseball this season.
22 weeks ago
Jose Quintana photo 90. Jose Quintana SP - CHC
Ender Inciarte photo 91. Ender Inciarte CF - ATL
Don't look now, but Ender is on pace for 15 homers and (jaw hits the floor) 70 stolen bases. All of this while batting a measly .264. That could very well improve to near .300 and when it does, Ender may just end up stealing near 80 bags.
22 weeks ago
Patrick Corbin photo 92. Patrick Corbin SP - ARI
Odubel Herrera photo 93. Odubel Herrera CF - PHI
Herrera has been unbelievable this season with a .361 batting average. That is almost certainly going to come down, but the power and speed may both improve too, leaving Herrera as a sure-fire top 80 fantasy player at this point.
22 weeks ago
Nomar Mazara photo 94. Nomar Mazara LF,RF,DH - TEX
Mazara is gearing up for a comeback in a few weeks and when he returns, fantasy owners will get a four category contributor that can be played as a fourth outfielder every time he faces a right-handed pitcher.
12 weeks ago
Lance McCullers photo 95. Lance McCullers SP - HOU
Willson Contreras photo 96. Willson Contreras C - CHC
Contreras has seen his power disappear seemingly, but he is still hitting for average and playing most every day. That is enough to warrant starting him in every league considering the quality of the lineup he is in and the RBIs + runs that will come from being in it.
18 weeks ago
Elvis Andrus photo 97. Elvis Andrus SS - TEX
Andrus is among the top buy low candidates. Granted, he is on the disabled list for another month or two, but based on how he began his season, you may find his owner to be impatient and far underestimate what he should do the remainder of the season.
25 weeks ago
DJ LeMahieu photo 98. DJ LeMahieu 2B - COL
LeMahieu's batting average hasn't quite been what we've grown used to seeing, but the power has improved and he could end up with both 15 homers and 10 steals this season. He is no longer a top 100 fantasy player but certainly one worth owning and starting in every league.
13 weeks ago
Joey Gallo photo 99. Joey Gallo 1B,3B,LF - TEX
If you are disappointed in what Gallo has done so far (.213 BA and 7 HR) then you clearly didn't know who he was when you drafted him. This 50 home run pace might stick for the season and I'll be no one will complain about his crummy batting average when that comes to pass.
25 weeks ago
Felipe Vazquez photo 100. Felipe Vazquez RP - PIT
Jake Arrieta photo 101. Jake Arrieta SP - PHI
David Price photo 102. David Price SP,RP - BOS
There will always be injury concerns with Price, as is common with pitchers as they age. With that said, he just twirled a complete game with 8 strikeouts and clearly has enough left in the tank that you ought to hang onto him for now.
22 weeks ago
Justin Turner photo 103. Justin Turner 3B - LAD
Turner is back with the Dodgers and batting in the middle of the order. This is no longer a top-tier offense like we've grown used to seeing, but he can still produce plenty of runs to go along with what will likely be one of the best batting averages in baseball.
22 weeks ago
Raisel Iglesias photo 104. Raisel Iglesias RP - CIN
Carlos Santana photo 105. Carlos Santana 1B,RF - PHI
You may not be impressed by Santa's lackluster batting average, but he is on pace for 25+ homers and nearly 100 RBIs and runs, so don't think for one second about moving him to your bench or even dropping him.
14 weeks ago
Rafael Devers photo 106. Rafael Devers 3B - BOS
Devers is on the DL for an unknown period of time, but based on how the Red Sox are playing and his tremendous upside, it seems likely they will give him plenty of time to get to 100% before returning. Don't be shocked if he misses most of August before getting back to Boston.

Yu Darvish photo 108. Yu Darvish SP - CHC
J.T. Realmuto photo 109. J.T. Realmuto C,1B - MIA
Not only is Realmuto producing above and beyond Buster Posey, but he is doing so in a lineup with no protection. That could change shortly, as the Marlins are expected to sell him to a contender. Once he moves out of Miami's park and lineup, the stats could take off even more.
22 weeks ago
Buster Posey photo 110. Buster Posey C,1B - SF
Posey is a good bet to bat around .300, as he has done to begin the season. With that being said, long gone are the days where he will hit more than 12 to 15 homers. At this point, he is nowhere close to the top fantasy catcher in baseball. In fact, he may not even be top 5 at this point in his career.
22 weeks ago
Scooter Gennett photo 111. Scooter Gennett 2B,3B,LF - CIN
Scooter is back to pummeling baseballs after a difficult start. He is now batting well over .300 and on pace for 30 homers on the season. At this point, he needs to be owned and started in every league.
21 weeks ago
Alex Wood photo 112. Alex Wood SP - LAD
Matt Carpenter photo 113. Matt Carpenter 1B,2B,3B - STL
Carpenter started off terribly, but he is suddenly on fire and looks like the version of himself we grew used to seeing. Don't give up and drop him or sell him low, Carp is back and should be regarded as a top 12 second basemen from here on out.

Jon Lester photo 115. Jon Lester SP - CHC
Ryan Braun photo 116. Ryan Braun 1B,LF - MIL
Braun has not contributed this season as much as he has in past seasons, but he still provides enough power and speed to warrant owning in an injury-riddled league.
12 weeks ago
Matt Olson photo 117. Matt Olson 1B,RF - OAK
Olson started heating up a few weeks ago and is now entirely on fire. He leads all of baseball in hard-hit percentage and could very well end the season with 40+ homers. Granted, the batting average won't be useful, but it should end up north of .230.

Sean Doolittle photo 118. Sean Doolittle RP - WSH
Jameson Taillon photo 119. Jameson Taillon SP - PIT
Rougned Odor photo 120. Rougned Odor 2B,DH - TEX
Odor may be continuing his struggles from last season, but he is nowhere close to being worthy of a drop. Last season his batting average was terrible, but middle infielders who hit 30 homers and steal 15 bases don't grow on trees.
25 weeks ago
Justin Smoak photo 121. Justin Smoak 1B,DH - TOR
Clearly what happened last season with Smoak's stats was a fluke, as he has proven substantial regression. He isn't the worst depth bat, but could certainly be unowned in standard sized leagues without regret.
14 weeks ago
Miles Mikolas photo 122. Miles Mikolas SP - STL
When Mikolas came over, there were plenty of question marks, but he has passed the test with flying colors. The only question now is whether he will make the all-star team or not.

Wade Davis photo 123. Wade Davis RP - COL
Shin-Soo Choo photo 124. Shin-Soo Choo LF,RF,DH - TEX
Choo has been exceptional this season as we have seen for months at a time during his career. He will almost certainly not continue his current pace, however, so don't buy him as a top 20 outfielder, but if you own him, perhaps you can find a buyer who believes in him.
12 weeks ago
Kyle Schwarber photo 125. Kyle Schwarber LF - CHC
Schwarber is back to a crummy batting average after showing some life earlier in the year. He is still hitting dingers, however, and could end the season with around 35 plus 80/80 RBIs and runs. That is a combo any owner would be glad to have in their lineup every day.
12 weeks ago
Yasiel Puig photo 126. Yasiel Puig RF - LAD
Puig is back on the DL, but should return shortly. When he does, expect much of the same, where he contributes in all five categories, but is merely mediocre in each one.

Blake Treinen photo 128. Blake Treinen RP - OAK
Kyle Seager photo 129. Kyle Seager 3B - SEA
Seager was so reliable and consistent for years, but at this point, it seems as though he won't return to that type of production. He is still worthy of a start every week, but it is time we admit that he is no longer a top 100 fantasy baseball player.
22 weeks ago
Adrian Beltre photo 130. Adrian Beltre 3B,DH - TEX
Beltre is out again with another injury, and while he will return eventually, we ought to expect another soft-tissue DL stint at some point. His power seems to have disappeared, and while he will still be a source of batting average, we can't rely on him as a top 100 fantasy player any more.

Belt has quietly been an exceptional fantasy asset this season. He is on pace for 40 homers while batting over .300 and while neither will likely keep up, he is a tremendous asset at this point.

Desmond may only be batting .175, but we have seen enough of him throughout his career to know that won't stick. The average will jump and 25 to 30 HR with about a dozen steals is a solid bet for his final line.

David Peralta photo 135. David Peralta LF,RF - ARI
Peralta has bounced back well this year, batting .288 and on pace for 30 homers. He doesn't offer much else and shouldn't be played versus lefties, but is a reliable fifth outfielder for now.

Jose Martinez photo 136. Jose Martinez 1B,LF,RF - STL
If you were wondering if Martinez is the real deal, look no further than his batted ball data, which is among the elite hitters in baseball since he joined the Cardinals last season. You may actually still be able to trade for him at a discount compared to what he is worth.

Rich Hill photo 137. Rich Hill SP - LAD
You couldn't sell Hill and his 6.20 ERA for anything right now, and it wouldn't be wise to buy someone with so many question marks. Chances are, however, that he will post a great stretch of three or four starts at some point. When he does, you'll have a chance to sell high and should take advantage of it.

Gleyber Torres photo 139. Gleyber Torres 2B,SS - NYY
Now that Torres is called up, he should be owned in every single league. He's got a Michael Brantley type of offensive game to him, but will qualify at 2B, 3B and SS before long unlike Brantley. Torres may be a top 100 pick next season.

Adam Jones photo 140. Adam Jones CF,DH - BAL
If Jones gets traded, we would likely see a big boost in runs and RBIs, as Baltimore's offense is just too lousy to support him in those categories. Otherwise, he remains a mediocre fourth outfielder in fantasy leagues.

Dylan Bundy photo 141. Dylan Bundy SP - BAL
Bundy is so inconsistent thus far, and it seems as though he will be a frusterating one to own, but don't give up hope after three consecutive bad starts, it likely just means a handful of dominant ones are coming.

Juan Soto photo 144. Juan Soto LF,RF - WSH
After a scorching start, Soto has slowed down a bit. Still, he is batting over .300 as a teenager with a pro-rated 25 homer, 85/85 RBI/run pace. He should still fade a little more, but is no doubt a top 30 fantasy outfielder already and destined to be one of the best in baseball someday soon.

Justin Bour photo 145. Justin Bour 1B - PHI
While you might not want to play Bour every day, he is an excellent streamer against almost any righty pitcher, or if you have deeper benches, you can use him in those situations so no one else can beat you to the punch.

Cesar Hernandez photo 146. Cesar Hernandez 2B - PHI
Year in and year out, Hernandez goes overlooked in fantasy baseball and this season is no different. He is on pace for 15 homers and 25 steals with a quality batting average and well over 100 runs. Don't hesitate to start him, and if you are able, put in a trade offer in case his owner is sleeping.

Ryan Zimmerman photo 147. Ryan Zimmerman 1B - WSH
Zimmerman has started the season with lousy statistics, but his batted ball rates are through the roof. This tells us that his numbers will emerge sooner or later. Don't give up on him yet. As long as he stays hea;thy, he should be owned and started everywhere.

Luis Castillo photo 150. Luis Castillo SP - CIN
Don't look now, but Castillo has now gone 18 innings with a 3.00 ERA and 22 strikeouts over his past three starts. The underlying numbers indicated that this was inevitable, so don't think of it as a fluke. In fact, you may still be able to buy him as a discount considering his ERA is still 6.02. He is a top 35 pitcher the rest of the way with considerable upside.

Jack Flaherty photo 151. Jack Flaherty SP - STL
When Alex Reyes was announced a starter upon his return, it seemed that Flaherty would be sent back down, but he is just pitching too well to lose his job. At this point, it seems that Luke Weaver is on the chopping block at that Flaherty will stay in the rotation.

Tim Anderson photo 152. Tim Anderson SS - CWS
Tim Anderson is not only stealing bases at an elite clip, but he has had a bit of a power surge this season. It has come at the expensive of his batting average, but with his 20 HR, 50 SB rate, Anderson has become a top 10 fantasy shortstop.

Brett Gardner photo 153. Brett Gardner LF,CF - NYY
Gardner isn't much help in any one category, but if you need a warm body while one of your fantasy starters is on the bench, he is useful enough in all five categories to warrant a roster spot.

Andrelton Simmons photo 155. Andrelton Simmons SS - LAA
Not only is Simmons the best defender in all of baseball, but his offense has developed into a strong second-tier type of player. He is on pace for 15 homers and 20 steals to go with a tremendous batting average. That .342 line won't keep up all year, but .300 is a legitimate possibility.

Sean Newcomb photo 156. Sean Newcomb SP - ATL
Newcomb has been sensational, especially over his last three scoreless starts. You may be tempted to "sell high" on him at this point, but it is not exactly a move we stand behind. What you are seeing of Newcomb is more than likely the real deal. He is a top 25 starting pitcher and should be regarded as such on the trade market.

Jake Lamb photo 158. Jake Lamb 3B - ARI

Evan Gattis photo 161. Evan Gattis C,DH - HOU
Gattis is batting under .200 with limited power through a quarter of the season, but the Astros are still running him out there every day.

Muncy has cooled down, but still has an absurd 15 homers in 157 at bats thus far. He ought to be started every day regardless of the matchup unless he turns into a dud for a full month. At this point, there is just too much potential to bench him.

Ben Zobrist photo 525. Ben Zobrist 2B,LF,RF - CHC
Despite his advanced age, Zobrist is still playing almost everyday and remains competent in fantasy baseball. He still won't provide much of anything in terms of homers or steals, but the batting average, runs and RBIs are enough to warrant a roster spot.

Victor Robles photo 527. Victor Robles RF - WSH
Robles is on the DL for now, but when he returns, you'd have to think he will get a quick call-up to the MLB level to replace Adam Eaton. Robles may not have the upside of Ronald Acuna, but he is every bit as polished and capable of producing in all five categories.

If Tucker were playing every day, he would be a top 35 fantasy outfielder for the rest of the season, as he should contribute right away in all five categories. The Astros are easing him into things, however, so while he is certainly worth owning, it may be more of a waiting game for now.
