Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Mike Trout photo 1. Mike Trout CF - LAA
As incredible as Trout has been once again, both Yelich and Bellinger have been more useful from a fantasy perspective. It may not last much longer, but with the rate Yelich has been going for the past 120 games, it seems unlikely that Trout will catch him by season's end as the top fantasy hitter.

Christian Yelich photo 2. Christian Yelich LF,CF,RF - MIL
In real life, Yelich doesn't do enough overall to have surpassed Trout as the top player in the game but with a 50 homer, 40 steal pace to go with a .330 batting average, you can bet your bottom dollar that he has been the #1 fantasy asset this season and will continue to be so.
5 weeks ago
Ronald Acuna Jr. photo 3. 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.
5 weeks ago
Mookie Betts photo 4. Mookie Betts CF,RF - BOS
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.
5 weeks ago
Nolan Arenado photo 5. 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.
5 weeks ago
J.D. Martinez photo 6. J.D. Martinez LF,RF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Trevor Story photo 7. 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.
5 weeks ago
Cody Bellinger photo 8. 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.
5 weeks ago
Justin Verlander photo 9. Justin Verlander SP - HOU
Verlander's 0.85 WHIP is almost unbelievable, as is the fact that he has already struck out 172 batters with 40% of the season to go. While he is firmly entrenched in the top tier, he is still behind Scherzer as the #1 starter in fantasy baseball.
4 weeks ago
Javier Baez photo 10. Javier Baez 2B,3B,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.
5 weeks ago
Francisco Lindor photo 11. 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.
5 weeks ago
Max Scherzer photo 12. Max Scherzer SP - WSH
With a short IL stint, Verlander has passed up Scherzer as the top performer so far this year but the stay should be brief, as there is no better fantasy pitcher in the game when healthy than Scherzer. In fact, he may be #4 in all of fantasy behind only Trout, Yelich and Bellinger.
4 weeks ago
Trea Turner photo 13. 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.
5 weeks ago
Jacob deGrom photo 14. Jacob deGrom SP - NYM
deGrom won't finish with the magical sub 2.00 ERA we saw last season but with the way things are going, it should once again end up below 3.00 with well over 220 Ks. The wins, of course, won't be there on the Mets, but even so, he is a clear-cut SP1.
4 weeks ago
Alex Bregman photo 15. 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.
5 weeks ago
Gerrit Cole photo 16. Gerrit Cole SP - HOU
Cole reached 200 Ks once again and may very well end up north of 300 by season's end. His ERA won't be quite as low as Scherzer's because of his struggles in preventing homers, but there is little doubt he is a top-tier starter this year.
4 weeks ago
Freddie Freeman photo 17. 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.
5 weeks ago
Charlie Blackmon photo 18. 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.
5 weeks ago
Anthony Rendon photo 19. Anthony Rendon 3B - WSH
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.
5 weeks ago
Aaron Judge photo 20. 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.
5 weeks ago
Juan Soto photo 21. 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.
5 weeks ago
Manny Machado photo 22. 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.
5 weeks ago
Xander Bogaerts photo 23. 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.
5 weeks ago
Bryce Harper photo 24. Bryce Harper CF,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.
5 weeks ago
Anthony Rizzo photo 25. 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.
5 weeks ago
Whit Merrifield photo 26. Whit Merrifield 1B,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.
5 weeks ago
Kris Bryant photo 27. 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.
5 weeks ago
Starling Marte photo 28. Starling Marte CF - PIT
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.
5 weeks ago
Walker Buehler photo 29. Walker Buehler SP - LAD
Buehler was exceptional in the second half last year then had mighty struggles to begin the 2019 campaign. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief, however, as he is back to pulverizing hitters like the top five starter he is.
4 weeks ago
Jose Altuve photo 30. 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.
5 weeks ago
Chris Sale photo 31. Chris Sale SP - BOS
It sure was ugly to start the year but Sale has settled in nicely since then and has now compiled over 160 Ks through the first half. That 4+ ERA isn't pretty, but know that it is highly likely that number will continue to improve over the final few months of the year.
4 weeks ago
George Springer photo 32. 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.
5 weeks ago
Jose Ramirez photo 33. Jose Ramirez 2B,3B - CLE
Don't look now, but Jose Ramirez is back to obliterating baseballs over the past month. He may not finish the season like the first round pick we all expected him to be, but he will at the very least reward to owner who was patient enough to hold onto him.
5 weeks ago
Paul Goldschmidt photo 34. 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.
5 weeks ago
Trevor Bauer photo 35. Trevor Bauer SP - CIN
Bauer's season has been a series of major highs and major lows. In all, it has come to a mildly disappointing first half, but somehow still a SP1. It seems now that Cleveland will hang onto him since they are back in the race so perhaps we will get more of the same in the second half.
4 weeks ago
Stephen Strasburg photo 36. Stephen Strasburg SP - WSH
Strasburg has never put it together for a full season, and while this isn't exactly the best we've seen from him, he may finally finish the season as that top 10 starting pitcher we always imagined him to be with 18 wins, 250 Ks and strong ratios.
4 weeks ago
Aaron Nola photo 37. Aaron Nola SP - PHI
Nola began the season much like many of the other aces: with horrible ratios and fantasy owners all devastated. He has fixed whatever issues he may have been having, however, and is now roaring back in both ERA and WHIP while striking out everyone in sight.
4 weeks ago
Zack Greinke photo 38. Zack Greinke SP - HOU
Greinke isn't your prototypical strikeout heavy ace but he is as reliable as they come in the ratios which will, of course, translate to plenty of wins as well. If he is your SP1 on your roster, you should feel pretty good about your team.
4 weeks ago
Clayton Kershaw photo 39. Clayton Kershaw SP - LAD
Kershaw certainly isn't the same dominant pitcher that everyone was drafting in the first round every year but that by no means implies he is washed up. Rather, he keeps chugging along with a WHIP near 1.00, a sub 3 ERA and nearly a K-per inning. That will do.
4 weeks ago
Rafael Devers photo 40. 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.
5 weeks ago
Rhys Hoskins photo 41. 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.
5 weeks ago
Pete Alonso photo 42. 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.
5 weeks ago
Eddie Rosario photo 43. Eddie Rosario LF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Patrick Corbin photo 44. Patrick Corbin SP - WSH
Corbin has seen his ratios drop a bit from last season's incredible breakout, but he is still going to strikeout 220 batters and don't be surprised if he ends up at 15 wins despite struggling to reach double-digits in the first 4 months.
4 weeks ago
Luis Castillo photo 45. Luis Castillo SP - CIN
Castillo was everyone's favorite breakout candidate and boy has he sure delivered. Through the first half, fantasy owners have received nearly 140 Ks, a sub 2.50 ERA and a WHIP hovering around 1.10. He may very well be a top 10 starting pitcher at the end of the season.
4 weeks ago
Charlie Morton photo 46. Charlie Morton SP - TB
Morton was about as safe of a late-round starting pitcher steal as you'll ever find.Even so, no one anticipated the year he is having with a 250 K pace to go with incredible ratios and perhaps 16 or 17 wins if he keeps it up in the second half.
4 weeks ago
Andrew Benintendi photo 47. 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.
5 weeks ago
Carlos Correa photo 48. 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.
5 weeks ago
Ozzie Albies photo 49. 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.
5 weeks ago
Nelson Cruz photo 50. Nelson Cruz Util - 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.
5 weeks ago
Gleyber Torres photo 51. 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.
5 weeks ago
Eugenio Suarez photo 52. 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.
5 weeks ago
Jose Abreu photo 53. Jose Abreu 1B - 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.
5 weeks ago
Josh Bell photo 54. 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.
5 weeks ago
Hyun-Jin Ryu photo 55. Hyun-Jin Ryu SP - LAD
As we enter August, Ryu is still rocking a sub 1.00 WHIP and a sub 2.00 ERA. Now, whether he can sustain that is clearly a no, but who would complain if he finishes the year with a 2.50 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 200 Ks? Certainly not the guy who drafted him in the 20th round.
4 weeks ago
Noah Syndergaard photo 56. Noah Syndergaard SP - NYM
Thor may have elite stuff but the strikeout numbers and ERA are definitely not there this season. That can always change with a talent like this, but it is by no means a guarantee, nor are wins when he pitches in front of a lousy Mets' offense.
4 weeks ago
Tommy Pham photo 57. Tommy Pham LF,CF - TB
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.
5 weeks ago
Matt Chapman photo 58. 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.
5 weeks ago
Jose Berrios photo 59. Jose Berrios SP - MIN
Berrios may not be the strikeout pitcher we saw when he entered the league with such electric stuff, but he is still getting the job done, and perhaps better than any other point in his career. Fantasy owners have a top 20 starter in Berrios.
4 weeks ago
Max Muncy photo 60. 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.
5 weeks ago
Marcell Ozuna photo 61. Marcell Ozuna LF - STL
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.
5 weeks ago
Aroldis Chapman photo 62. Aroldis Chapman RP - NYY
Chapman may not be as dominant as he once was, but he still clearly belongs within the elite tier of fantasy closers. Once again, fantasy owners can expect 100 Ks to go with plenty of saves and solid ratios.
4 weeks ago
Shane Bieber photo 63. Shane Bieber SP - CLE
Underlying stats all screamed that Bieber was due for a huge season and anyone who believed it is dancing in the streets right now. It seems to be legitimate too so don't be getting the crazy idea of trying to sell him while his stock is high.
4 weeks ago
Yasiel Puig photo 64. Yasiel Puig RF - CLE
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.
5 weeks ago
Khris Davis photo 65. Khris Davis LF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Kenley Jansen photo 66. Kenley Jansen RP - LAD
Jansen has been so good for so long that you might automatically assume him to be the top closer once again in 2019, but last year, he was nowhere close to it. Rather, his ERA plummeted to 3.01 with "just" 82 Ks. You can still grab him among the top tier, but you shouldn't even be considering taking him in the first five or six rounds.
20 weeks ago
Gary Sanchez photo 67. 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.
5 weeks ago
Brad Hand photo 68. Brad Hand RP - CLE
Cleveland struck gold in acquiring Brad Hand last year. He has been nothing but magic for them, continuing into this year when he struck out over 60 first half batters and already executed more than 25 saves.
4 weeks ago
Kirby Yates photo 69. Kirby Yates RP - SD
Yates is the latest of a long line of dominant closers for the Padres. He has been the single best fantasy closer through the first half thanks to loads of save opportunities to go with incredible ratios and that is all expected to continue.
4 weeks ago
Mike Moustakas photo 70. Mike Moustakas 2B,3B - MIL
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.
5 weeks ago
Adalberto Mondesi photo 71. Adalberto Mondesi 2B,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.
2 weeks ago
James Paxton photo 72. James Paxton SP - NYY
As always, Paxton missed some time and it would be no surprise if it happened again in the second half. With that said, he is still striking out loads of batters but will need to fix his ratios if he wants to be considered a top 20 starting pitcher anymore.
4 weeks ago
Mike Clevinger photo 73. Mike Clevinger SP - CLE
Clevinger spent quite a bit of time on the IL but since he has returned, it has been absolute gold. With the way he is going, he may move up from top 20 starting pitchers to top 10 by the end of the season.
4 weeks ago
Josh Hader photo 74. Josh Hader RP - MIL
Hader has run into a bit of a cold spell in July but that is bound to happen to even the best relievers at one point or another. The fact of the matter is, he is on pace for 140 Ks again to go with 35+ saves and sparkling ratios.
4 weeks ago
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. photo 75. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 3B - 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.
5 weeks ago
Michael Brantley photo 76. Michael Brantley LF,RF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Justin Turner photo 77. 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.
5 weeks ago
Roberto Osuna photo 78. Roberto Osuna RP - HOU
The change of scenery has proved useful for Osuna, who has done nothing but dominate since the deal to Houston. While he won't strike out 100 like some of the names above him, Osuna is a safe bet for 35 saves and excellent ratios.
4 weeks ago
Felipe Vazquez photo 79. Felipe Vazquez RP - PIT
You may not expect the Pirates to be great, but Vasquez is durable and has no competition for saves. Lock him in for 85 Ks, stellar ratios and enough save opportunities to warrant being selected as one of the top 10 closers in 2019.
20 weeks ago
Domingo Santana photo 80. Domingo Santana LF,RF - SEA
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.
5 weeks ago
Michael Conforto photo 81. 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.
5 weeks ago
Ketel Marte photo 82. Ketel Marte 2B,SS,CF - ARI
Marte has been spectacular with an astonishing 21 first-half homers to go with a batting average well over .300. While he is clearly no fluke, the notion that he is suddenly one of the top offensive middle infielders in baseball won't stick around for long so sell him high if you can find a taker willing to pay enough.
5 weeks ago
Josh Donaldson photo 83. Josh Donaldson 3B - ATL
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.
5 weeks ago
Jack Flaherty photo 84. Jack Flaherty SP - STL
Flaherty hasn't been anywhere near as strong as he was as a rookie, but even so, 200 Ks appears to be likely and the WHIP is strong once again. If the Cardinals start supporting him at the plate, he may finish with a dozen wins too which isn't bad for a SP3.
4 weeks ago
Madison Bumgarner photo 85. Madison Bumgarner SP - SF
Bumgarner is pitching well again with over a strikeout per inning and a strong WHIP but it could go downhill quick if he is traded to a ballpark like Yankee Stadium. Even if it happens, he would likely still be somewhat useful, just as a SP5 instead of SP3.
4 weeks ago
Lorenzo Cain photo 86. 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.
5 weeks ago
Victor Robles photo 87. 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.
5 weeks ago
David Price photo 88. David Price SP - BOS
Price was so much better just a few years ago that it is easy to think of him as washed up, but he is still accomplishing plenty for fantasy owners, just not at the ace level. Rather, his numbers are more in the SP3 range but he remains reliable.
4 weeks ago
Jorge Polanco photo 89. 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.
5 weeks ago
Zack Wheeler photo 90. Zack Wheeler SP - NYM
Wheeler was so terrific in the second half last year that it seemed inevitable that he would at least have a solid season, but that hasn't happened yet. He still has the stuff to finish strong but at this point, fantasy owners can't say he is a SP3.
4 weeks ago
Jean Segura photo 91. 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.
5 weeks ago
Blake Snell photo 92. Blake Snell SP - TB
Every underlying metric last year was screaming regression and this year it is the very opposite, which should leave fantasy owners to expect somewhere in between during the second half. It it worth putting in an offer in case you can still buy-low.
4 weeks ago
Matthew Boyd photo 93. Matthew Boyd SP - DET
Boyd has been extraordinary with 160 Ks already and while that is near certain to continue, he could see a further jump if Detroit does end up dealing him to a contender where he can get some wins, and specifically in the NL where his ratios would also benefit.
4 weeks ago
Elvis Andrus photo 94. 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.

Sean Doolittle photo 95. Sean Doolittle RP - WSH
Doolittle is no longer a world beater for the Nationals or fantasy owners, but they can't complain about 48 first half Ks, nor the respectable ratios he continues to put up each and every month.

Shohei Ohtani photo 96. Shohei Ohtani Util - LAA
We've now seen 162 games played so far in Ohtani's career and he has produced loads of power to go with speed, and plenty of runs and RBIs along with a terrific batting average. To put it plainly, this type of production is only reserved for top 20 fantasy hitters.

Yoan Moncada photo 97. 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.

Nicholas Castellanos photo 98. Nicholas Castellanos RF - CHC
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.

Eloy Jimenez photo 99. 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.

Giancarlo Stanton photo 100. 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.

Carlos Santana photo 101. Carlos Santana 1B,3B - 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.

Chris Paddack photo 102. Chris Paddack SP - SD
If Paddack were going to pitch the entire season, he would be a strong contender for NL Rookie of the Year but the most likely scenario is that the Padres shut him down at some point since they aren't contending and he hasn't thrown many innings at any point in his injury-riddled MILB career.
4 weeks ago
Edwin Diaz photo 103. Edwin Diaz RP - NYM
Diaz went from hero to zero in a short time. Granted, he still has 59 first half Ks but with an ERA above 5.00, many owners are wondering what they should do with Diaz. Keep him as long as he has the job but hoping for a turnaround may be too much to ask for.
4 weeks ago
Masahiro Tanaka photo 104. Masahiro Tanaka SP - NYY
It would be one thing if Tanaka's ERA was the only stat taking a hit this season, but perhaps more disappointing has been his K-rate plummeting. He may still have some upside in the second half, but m ore than likely we are looking at a SP5.
4 weeks ago
Matt Olson photo 105. 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.

Daniel Murphy photo 106. 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.
5 weeks ago
Austin Meadows photo 107. Austin Meadows LF,CF,RF - 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.
5 weeks ago
DJ LeMahieu photo 108. 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.
5 weeks ago
Yasmani Grandal photo 109. Yasmani Grandal C,1B - MIL
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.

Max Kepler photo 110. 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.
5 weeks ago
J.T. Realmuto photo 111. J.T. Realmuto C,1B - 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.
5 weeks ago
Will Smith photo 112. Will Smith RP - SF
Smith has been lights out for the Giants with 61 first-half Ks and a WHIP below 1.00. So long as he remains the closer, he will be an excellent fantasy option, but it seems likely San Francisco will deal him before long.

Craig Kimbrel photo 114. Craig Kimbrel RP - CHC
Cubs fans have certainly hoped for more than Kimbrel has given them since the signing, but that should turn around quickly now that his version of Spring Training is officially up. Fantasy owners can expect a second tier closer over the second half.

Corey Seager photo 115. 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.

Eduardo Escobar photo 116. 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.
5 weeks ago
Kyle Hendricks photo 117. Kyle Hendricks SP - CHC
Hendricks still carries an excellent WHIP and the ERA isn't far behind. He will never be a SP1 or even SP2, but fantasy owners can feel safe putting Hendricks on the mound most every start even if the strikeouts won't pile up.

Joey Gallo photo 118. Joey Gallo 1B,LF,CF,RF - TEX
Even despite all the strikeouts, Gallo is batting .279 thanks to a league-high average exit velocity of 94 MPH. Add in 20 homers in 204 at-bats thus far and we are talking about one of the premium power hitters in fantasy baseball, worthy of a top 50 pick next year.
5 weeks ago
Franmil Reyes photo 119. Franmil Reyes RF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Tim Anderson photo 120. 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.
5 weeks ago
Fernando Tatis Jr. photo 121. Fernando Tatis Jr. SS - SD
It is easy to get excited about a guy who went for 14/14 homers/steals and batted .340 through his first third of a season. Let's try to remember the precautionary tales like Michael Chavis, though. What's more, is that Statcast suggests no one in baseball has been luckier that Tatis so far.
5 weeks ago
Jonathan Villar photo 122. Jonathan Villar 2B,SS - BAL
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.
5 weeks ago
Ken Giles photo 123. Ken Giles RP - TOR
The Blue Jays' closer role is not as coveted as some others, but Giles has certainly made the most of it with 57 first half Ks, an ERA below 2.00 and a WHIP south of 1.10. He isn't quite a top tier closer, but is close.
4 weeks ago
Luke Voit photo 124. Luke Voit 1B - 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.

Yordan Alvarez photo 125. Yordan Alvarez LF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Robbie Ray photo 126. Robbie Ray SP - ARI
Over the last few year's Ray has been the epitome of a volatile pitcher. This year hasn't been any different, as he still struggles with the home run and as a result, carries an ERA near 4. The strikeouts will still be there, of course, but until he fixes that ERA, he is merely a SP3.
4 weeks ago
Joey Votto photo 127. 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.
5 weeks ago
Kenta Maeda photo 128. Kenta Maeda SP,RP - LAD
Maeda carries an incredible WHIP but the ERA isn't exactly there so far. He'll get some wins and is racking up a strikeout per inning, but until that ERA comes down, he will remain outside the top 25 fantasy starters.
4 weeks ago
Caleb Smith photo 129. Caleb Smith SP - MIA
Smith may be the most exciting of several excellent young Marlins pitchers. Granted, he won't get to even a dozen wins but 200 Ks is a distinct possibility since he has regained his excellent strikeout numbers from prior to his injury that ended the 2018 season.
19 weeks ago
David Peralta photo 130. David Peralta LF - ARI
Peralta was raging hot earlier in the season but as the underlying numbers accurately forecasted, that was a mere fluke. Now that he is on the IL, you can make a case for cutting him loose if you need the extra roster spot.
5 weeks ago
Raisel Iglesias photo 131. Raisel Iglesias RP - CIN
Iglesias hasn't racked up as many saves as fantasy owners had hoped for, nor are his ratios what you'd have expected, but he did have 50 first half Ks and is a strong bet to bounceback in the second half.
4 weeks ago
Mike Soroka photo 132. Mike Soroka SP - ATL
Soroka was blazing for a while and has come back down to earth a little. It should continue to be a slide over the second half as his batted ball data catches up to his stats but he is still without a doubt a top 40 starting pitcher at this point.
4 weeks ago
Yu Darvish photo 133. Yu Darvish SP - CHC
Darvish was so awful to start the season but after the break, he said he was feeling 110% and since then he has been dominant. There is a chance he'll continue the recent success and carry your rotation the rest of the season, but it is by no means the most likely scenario.
4 weeks ago
Eric Hosmer photo 134. 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.
5 weeks ago
Lucas Giolito photo 135. Lucas Giolito SP - CWS
Giolito was the worst pitcher in baseball last year but saw a spike in velocity and returned to the ace we once thought he may become. The breakout is legitimate with 200+ Ks a virtual lock to go with 15+ wins and excellent ratios.
4 weeks ago
Cole Hamels photo 136. Cole Hamels SP - CHC
Hamels isn't the same pitcher he once was, but the ratios are still running strong and with that, we can expect the wins to bounceback in the second half. He won't strike out 200 batters, but fantasy owners have gotten more than they asked for when they drafted him in the middle of drafts this Spring.
4 weeks ago
Sonny Gray photo 137. Sonny Gray SP,RP - CIN
Sonny Gray was a disaster the last few years in New York but has reinvented himself with the Reds and made the All-Star team as a result. It doesn't appear to be a fluke either, as all the underlying data supports his resurgence into the fantasy scene.
4 weeks ago
Eduardo Rodriguez photo 138. Eduardo Rodriguez SP - BOS
Rodriguez has strong strikeout stuff and is picking up wins with the Red Sox lineup behind him, but neither his ERA nor WHIP are above average. With that combination, we are looking at a fringe SP4/SP3.

Trey Mancini photo 139. 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.
5 weeks ago
Edwin Encarnacion photo 140. Edwin Encarnacion 1B - NYY
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.
5 weeks ago
Mike Minor photo 141. Mike Minor SP - TEX
You may not feel great about Minor repeating his first half and you shouldn't, but even with extreme regression, he would still be well worth owning. Don't be surprised when he finishes with 200 Ks and an ERA below 3.5.

Paul DeJong photo 142. 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.
5 weeks ago
Alex Colome photo 143. Alex Colome RP - CWS
Colome again has strong ratios with a WHIP now sitting at 0.80 but his 30 Ks through 39 first half innings is certainly nothing to write home about. Fantasy owners have a good one for sure, but he isn't in the elite conversation.

David Dahl photo 144. David Dahl LF,CF,RF - COL
Dahl has been every bit as good as advertised and more with a 110 run, 100 RBI pace to go along with a batting average north of .300. Fantasy owners should expect those numbers to drop a bit, however, as he has an outrageous BABIP so don't hesitate to explore the trade market.
5 weeks ago
Justin Upton photo 145. Justin Upton LF - LAA
Upton hasn't exactly hit the ground running since returning from the IL but his performance hasn't been poor enough to warrant a panic either. Rather, expect sufficient home runs and batting average to make him a fringe OF3 for the remainder of the season.
5 weeks ago
Nomar Mazara photo 146. Nomar Mazara RF - TEX
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.
5 weeks ago
A.J. Pollock photo 147. A.J. Pollock 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.

Corey Kluber photo 149. Corey Kluber SP - CLE
Kluber has been out for months and wasn't even very good prior to the injury so let's hold off on SP1 type expectations when he finally returns in a few weeks. With that said, he does still have that upside, of course, so don't hesitate to put in an offer if you are already locked into the H2H playoffs.
4 weeks ago
Dee Gordon photo 150. Dee Gordon 2B,SS,CF - 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.
5 weeks ago
Shane Greene photo 151. Shane Greene RP - ATL
Greene is this year's version of Blake Treinen, posting absurd ratios while executing every save in sight. It may not keep up at quite this rate, but you can be sure he'll fall into the top 10 closers through the first half.

Mitch Haniger photo 152. Mitch Haniger CF,RF - SEA
We know that Haniger offers plenty of upside when he returns from the IL, but it may continue to be rough going as we've seen in the first half. If you have the room on your bench to keep him, go for it, but don't sacrifice anything to do so.
5 weeks ago
Ryan Braun photo 153. Ryan Braun 1B,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.
5 weeks ago
Jeff McNeil photo 154. Jeff McNeil 2B,3B,LF,RF - NYM
No, McNeil isn't going to bat .350 forever, but .320 and an NL batting title is quite possible. There won't be a ton of power or speed, but enough that he won't drag you down in any area. McNeil should be a top 100 pick next spring in re-draft leagues.

Hunter Renfroe photo 157. Hunter Renfroe LF,RF - SD
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.

Mallex Smith photo 158. Mallex Smith LF,CF,RF - SEA

Jon Lester photo 160. Jon Lester SP - CHC
Lester was excellent in 2018 and started the 2019 season on fire, As the underlying metrics all suggested, the crash downward was inevitable and here we are with his ERA flirting with 4.00 and his WHIP at 1.35. He is still useful, no doubt, but as a SP5 instead of a SP2.

Hunter Dozier photo 161. 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.

Kyle Schwarber photo 162. 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.

Chris Archer photo 163. Chris Archer SP - PIT
Archer's ERA is still well above 5.00 with a lousy WHIP as well. He is getting K's but has just 3 wins as a result of the ratios.

Aaron Hicks photo 166. Aaron Hicks CF - NYY
Hicks hasn't gotten going quite yet after missing some time earlier in the season. And while he likely won't steal double-digit bags, it is fair to expect the power to return and his batting average to bounceback in the second half.

Willson Contreras photo 169. 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.

It seemed like only a matter of time before the Rangers would turn back to Leclerc who has been excellent since removed from the closer role. It may happen due to performance or perhaps if Kelley's MRI doesn't show up as they'd hope. When it does, Leclerc may be a top 10 closer.

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.

Liam Hendriks photo 182. Liam Hendriks SP,RP - OAK
As incredible as Hendricks has been with his 1.15 ERA and 1.01 WHIP to go with 69 Ks in 55 innings, he happens to share a roster with Blake Treinen, who may not be as great this season, but was the best closer in baseball last year. You can use Hendricks without a doubt, but know saves aren't going to be a big part of the equation.

Ramon Laureano photo 183. Ramon Laureano CF - 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.

Lance Lynn photo 184. Lance Lynn SP - TEX
Lynn may struggle to keep his ERA below 4.00 in that ballpark but with 240 Ks and 17 wins by year's end, fantasy owners will have no trouble looking past the ERA issue. Lynn is solidly a top 30 fantasy starter from this point forward.

Martinez has performed well as the Cardinals closer and if that were expected to continue, he'd be a lock for the top 15 relievers, but it seems as though they might dangle him at the deadline and who knows what his role would be in a new situation.

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.

Wade Davis photo 192. Wade Davis RP - COL
Davis has had ups and downs in his career but it has never been as rough as this year's 6 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. Assuming this continues, he may soon be replaced by Scott Oberg as the closer.

Jonathan Schoop photo 193. Jonathan Schoop 2B,SS - MIN
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.

Dansby Swanson photo 194. 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.

Joc Pederson photo 195. Joc Pederson 1B,LF,CF,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.

Brian Dozier photo 199. Brian Dozier 2B - WSH
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.

Brandon Woodruff photo 209. Brandon Woodruff SP,RP - MIL
Woodruff has been insane, striking out 133 first half batters to go with a 1.13 WHIP. You can look past that 3.53 ERA as the underlying metrics suggest it will come down in the second half, giving fantasy owners a total stud.

Wilson Ramos photo 214. 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.

Kikuchi's numbers from Japan translate to an MLB pitcher similar to Zack Wheeler last year, and like Wheeler, Kikuchi's arm could potentially blossom into much more to fantasy owners. He is by no means similar to Ohtani or Darvish before him, but 370 Ks and a 2.45 ERA in his last two seasons is nothing to sneeze at.

McCutchen might not be that first round pick he once was when we were getting 30 homers, 20 steals and a .320 batting average, but he is still a plenty capable fantasy asset. He is as durable as they come and has managed 20+ homers in 8 straight seasons. Not only that. but he still steals double-digit bags per year and is moving into by far the best ballpark of his career so don't be surprised if we get a resurgence.

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.

Richards carried a 4.42 ERA with 4 wins last year and formerly played independent baseball after going undrafted. It helps, however, that he has the best changeup in baseball. Richards' changeup is Trevor Hoffman-esque. It carried a 41.2% whiff rate with a .214 xWOBA. It certainly helped his performance when he adjusted by throwing it 38% of the time instead of 23% of the time at the start of the season. In those closing months, hitters were so focused on his filthy change-up that his slider suddenly became even more deadly than the changeup. With two of the most useful pitches in baseball, Richards could breakout this year in Miami much like Jake Peavy did in in 2004 after a rough start to his career.

Josh Reddick photo 452. Josh Reddick LF,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.

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.

Arodys Vizcaino photo 455. Arodys Vizcaino RP - ATL
Reports were suggesting that Vizcaino was in a closer battle with A.J. Minter, but now that Minter is banged up, it seems as though Vizcaino will open the season as the closer for a playoff contending team. That should make him worthwhile to draft, but that doesn't exactly mean he will hang onto the job for long if he slips up.

Brendan Rodgers photo 456. Brendan Rodgers 2B,SS - COL
Rodgers hasn't done anything this season at the big league level and although he is mashing in the minors, the Rockies sent him to the IL with shoulder impingement. If he does make a return, he'll be a hot waiver commodity, but you shouldn't count on it.

Jeimer Candelario photo 457. Jeimer Candelario 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.

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.

Kevin Newman photo 471. 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.

Eric Sogard photo 472. Eric Sogard 2B,SS,RF - TB
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.

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.

Green wasn't as electric in 2018 as the year before, but he still registered 94 strikeouts with excellent ratios and 8 wins. He isn't the closer, nor does he have a path to saves, but you can certainly make a case for drafting him even in standard sized leagues.

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.
