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.
4 weeks ago
Max Scherzer photo 4. Max Scherzer SP - WSH
Like a fine wine, Scherzer gets better with age. He's putting up some of the best numbers of his career through the first third of the season, with a 1.92 ERA and 36.7% strikeout percentage. The nine wins certainly don't hurt, either. The veteran looks well on his way to yet another 200-plus inning season of utter dominance, and neither his age nor his workload appears to be able to stand in his way.
11 weeks ago
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.
13 weeks ago
Manny Machado photo 6. 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.
17 weeks ago
J.D. Martinez photo 7. J.D. Martinez LF,RF,DH - BOS
Martinez quickly showed that his 2017 breakout was not a fluke. Other than a slight drop in his fly ball percentage, he's essentially been the same player as he was in 2017 through the first two months of the season. A legitimate 50-homer threat, Martinez is one of the few true elite power sources in the game, and may work his way into first round consideration next year at this rate.
12 weeks ago
Freddie Freeman photo 8. 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.
8 weeks ago
Charlie Blackmon photo 9. 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.
3 weeks ago
Bryce Harper photo 10. 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.
13 weeks ago
Jose Ramirez photo 11. 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.
4 weeks ago
Corey Kluber photo 12. Corey Kluber SP - CLE
What is there to say about Kluber at this point? If you draft him, you can feel pretty confident you're getting a sub-3.00 ERA, a sub-1.00 WHIP, plenty of strikeouts, and around 18 wins. The presence of Max Scherzer and perhaps Justin Verlander is the only thing keeping Kluber from being considered the consensus number one pitcher in all of fantasy. If you own him, just enjoy the 200-plus innings of elite production you should receive this year.
11 weeks ago
Chris Sale photo 13. Chris Sale SP - BOS
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.
4 weeks ago
Paul Goldschmidt photo 15. 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.
8 weeks ago
Trea Turner photo 16. 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.
4 weeks ago
Giancarlo Stanton photo 17. Giancarlo Stanton LF,RF,DH - NYY
Stanton's start in New York has been anything but smooth sailing. His power numbers remain adequate, though a far cry from his tremendous 2017 season. But all his indicators are trending in the wrong direction. He has the worst strikeout rate and walk rate of his career, and is batting just .246. Stanton is likely feeling some pressure, though it's worth noting that his gains in his strikeout rate last season were completely out of character for what he did in his career. It may be that even with his move to Yankee Stadium, Stanton simply is not going to repeat his monstrous 2017. Although he'll still provide plenty of value, his owners are likely to be disappointed with his end of season production.
12 weeks ago
Carlos Correa photo 18. 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.
4 weeks ago
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.
8 weeks ago
Aaron Judge photo 20. 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.
3 weeks ago
Justin Verlander photo 21. Justin Verlander SP - HOU
In a long and illustrious career, at age-35, Verlander is simply better than he's ever been. He's essentially been unhittable for the first two months of the season, pitching to an insanely minuscule 1.08 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP, with the best strikeout and walk rates of his career. The Astros have some magic dust, that's for sure, and although there's bound to be some regression, it's hard not to be bullish on Verlander having a career year at this point.
12 weeks ago
Jacob deGrom photo 22. Jacob deGrom SP - NYM
deGrom avoided what looked to be a major injury after he hyperextended his elbow, but returned shortly thereafter and looks as dominant as ever. He's taken his game to the next level, pitching to a 1.75 ERA, a 1.01 WHIP, and an impressive 69 strikeouts in 51 1/3 innings through May 19. There are trade rumors abound, but regardless of where deGrom lands, he should continue to be an elite fantasy starter for the remainder of the season.
13 weeks ago
Anthony Rizzo photo 23. Anthony Rizzo 1B,2B - CHC
Rizzo missed time with a bad back and, although he's started to come on, he hasn't yet gotten into a groove. His 3.4% walk rate (11.1% career) jumps out at you, but there's no reason to think Rizzo's plate discipline has simply abated at this point. Also, although he's still hitting the ball hard, his BABIP is at an abysmal .202 through May 11. In short, everything about Rizzo's slow start screams "fluke," and there's every reason to expect him to bounce back to career norms as the season goes along.
14 weeks ago
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.
3 weeks ago
Clayton Kershaw photo 25. Clayton Kershaw SP - LAD
Kershaw returned relatively quickly from his biceps injury, and pitched effectively against the Phillies, albeit with limited velocity. Immediately after the start, it was reported that he had back pain, and he was placed on the 10-day disabled list the next day. He's expected to miss more than a month, and, considering he has battled back injuries for several seasons, there's little to give fantasy owners confidence. There's not much you can do with Kershaw at this point - just hope that he returns and pitches well. But his long-term stock needs to be dropped significantly at this point, in light of his continued injury struggles.
11 weeks ago
Luis Severino photo 26. Luis Severino SP - NYY
Kris Bryant photo 27. 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.
4 weeks ago
Andrew Benintendi photo 28. 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.
16 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.
13 weeks ago
Jose Abreu photo 30. 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.
8 weeks ago
Noah Syndergaard photo 31. Noah Syndergaard SP - NYM
Christian Yelich photo 32. 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.
3 weeks ago
Brian Dozier photo 33. 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.
4 weeks ago
Cody Bellinger photo 34. 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.
13 weeks ago
Alex Bregman photo 35. 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.
13 weeks ago
Rhys Hoskins photo 36. 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.
8 weeks ago
Stephen Strasburg photo 37. Stephen Strasburg SP - WSH
Nelson Cruz photo 38. 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.
3 weeks ago
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.
17 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.
3 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.
4 weeks ago
Carlos Carrasco photo 42. Carlos Carrasco SP - CLE
Khris Davis photo 43. 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.
13 weeks ago
Zack Greinke photo 44. Zack Greinke SP - ARI
Ozzie Albies photo 45. Ozzie Albies 2B - ATL
Albies had a ton of helium heading into the start of the season, but even his most ardent backers couldn't have foreseen this. Albies' power stroke has far surpassed anything he ever showed in the minors, and the strength of the Braves' lineup has resulted in a bevy of counting stats for the youngster. It's not all good news - Albies' walk and strikeout rates are not where they need to be for him to continue to have success. But it's clear that he's going to far surpass his draft value and he should continue to be an upper-tier second baseman for the rest of the year.
13 weeks ago
Aaron Nola photo 46. Aaron Nola SP - PHI
Gerrit Cole photo 47. Gerrit Cole SP - HOU
Even those hoping that Cole would take the next step with the Astros couldn't have seen this coming. His ERA has dropped dramatically from both his 2017 numbers and his career rate, and his strikeout percentage has gone through the roof. As expected, Cole has started to throw his fastball less, and it has made the rest of his pitches even more effective. He's in the early Cy Young conversation, for sure, and, at the very least, his fantasy owners are bound to make a big profit if he stays healthy.
11 weeks ago
Edwin Encarnacion photo 48. Edwin Encarnacion 1B,DH - CLE
Encarnacion is off to his typical slow start, but there's little reason to be concerned. He started off the season terribly in each of the past few season, and his home run pace as of May 13 (38) is far ahead of where he has been at that point in any recent season. As always, Encarnacion owners should ride out the early-season funk, and prepare themselves for a big second half.
14 weeks ago
Marcell Ozuna photo 49. 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.
16 weeks ago
Lorenzo Cain photo 50. 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.
3 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.
4 weeks ago
Craig Kimbrel photo 53. Craig Kimbrel RP - BOS
A.J. Pollock photo 54. 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.
13 weeks ago
Gary Sanchez photo 55. 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.
8 weeks ago
Eddie Rosario photo 56. 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.
13 weeks ago
Xander Bogaerts photo 57. 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.
4 weeks ago

Aroldis Chapman photo 59. Aroldis Chapman RP - NYY
Kenley Jansen photo 60. 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.
16 weeks ago
Wil Myers photo 61. 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.
8 weeks ago
Travis Shaw photo 62. 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.
4 weeks ago
Ronald Acuna photo 63. 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.
12 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson photo 64. Josh Donaldson 3B,DH - TOR
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.
4 weeks ago
Javier Baez photo 65. 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.
17 weeks ago
Tommy Pham photo 66. 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.
16 weeks ago
Trevor Bauer photo 67. Trevor Bauer SP - CLE
Daniel Murphy photo 68. Daniel Murphy 1B,2B - WSH
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.
4 weeks ago
Nicholas Castellanos photo 69. 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.
17 weeks ago
Andrew McCutchen photo 70. Andrew McCutchen CF,RF - SF
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.
13 weeks ago
Edwin Diaz photo 71. Edwin Diaz RP - SEA
Jonathan Schoop photo 72. 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.
13 weeks ago
Trevor Story photo 73. 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.
16 weeks ago
Chris Archer photo 74. Chris Archer SP - PIT
Carlos Martinez photo 75. Carlos Martinez SP - STL
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.
5 weeks ago
Whit Merrifield photo 77. 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.
4 weeks ago
Charlie Morton photo 78. Charlie Morton SP - HOU
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.
4 weeks ago
Eugenio Suarez photo 80. 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.
4 weeks ago
Didi Gregorius photo 81. 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.
16 weeks ago
Jose Berrios photo 82. 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.
13 weeks ago
Robbie Ray photo 83. 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.
12 weeks ago
Blake Snell photo 84. Blake Snell SP - TB
Ender Inciarte photo 85. 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.
13 weeks ago

Yu Darvish photo 87. Yu Darvish SP - CHC
Michael Brantley photo 88. 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.
16 weeks ago
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.

Willson Contreras photo 93. 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.
9 weeks ago
Odubel Herrera photo 94. 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.
13 weeks ago
Buster Posey photo 95. 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.
13 weeks ago
Joey Gallo photo 96. Joey Gallo 1B,3B,LF - TEX
If you didn't consider Gallo's improvement toward the end of last year, then this is pretty much exactly what you would have expected. Yes, his strikeout and walk rates are down a bit but, for the most part, he is doing what he does - hitting at about a 50-homer pace and right around the Mendoza line. Even with the increase in power across the game, Gallo's huge potential plays, but unless he can find a way to get his batting average closer to the .230 range, you need to have help in batting average elsewhere on your team to roster him.
14 weeks ago
DJ LeMahieu photo 97. 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.

Lance McCullers photo 99. Lance McCullers SP - HOU
Carlos Santana photo 100. 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.
5 weeks ago
Rafael Devers photo 101. 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.
4 weeks ago
Elvis Andrus photo 102. 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.

Felipe Vazquez photo 103. Felipe Vazquez RP - PIT
Nomar Mazara photo 104. 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.

J.T. Realmuto photo 106. 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.
13 weeks ago
Justin Turner photo 107. 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.

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.

Neris wasn't having a great season, but was generally effective as the closer before Gabe Kapler decided that he wanted to mix it up in the ninth inning. Since that time, Neris has still been called upon in the ninth inning, but so have several other relievers, and this seems to be the rare case where a manager truly wants go with a committee approach. It's certainly conceivable that Neris will get the job back, but at this point, there's no real reason to hold him if you're in a roster crunch.

Murphy was just called up by the Rockies after dominating Triple-A. It seems as though he is going to be the full-time starter, and with a bat like his in Coors, that could give fantasy owners a top-five offensive catcher. Add him now before it is too late.

Flores isn't playing enough to be started every week, but he is among the game's best hitters versus lefties and should be started every time he draws one. Beyond that, he is merely waiting for extra playing time, at which point he would need to be owned in every league.

Diaz is by no means a safe bet considering how lousy his numbers were last season. With that being said, he offers power and batting average upside that is uncommon for middle infielders making him worth monitoring as a potential pickup.

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.
