Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Trevor Bauer photo 34. Trevor Bauer SP
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Overall, Winker is merely a fringe fantasy asset, but if you can afford to use him correctly, you've got yourself a serious player. Winker is abysmal versus lefties, but terrorizes righties so be sure to check the probable opposing pitcher each day.

Jose Peraza photo 201. Jose Peraza SS
Peraza broke out last season with 13 homers, 23 steals and a .288 batting average. Whether or not the power stays is a question, but he seems to be a safe source for runs, steals and batting average in the middle of drafts.

Derek Dietrich photo 296. Derek Dietrich 1B,LF
The batting average has come crashing down and his power has completely halted to go along with the playing time. With that said, he was so exceptional for a stretch that you can make a case for stashing him until he comes out of it and mashes again.

Tyler Mahle photo 345. Tyler Mahle SP
Mahle is now on the IL and you may not love his 4.93 ERA, but the 106 Ks and terrific underlying metrics make him well worth paying attention to once he returns.

Freddy Galvis photo 429. Freddy Galvis SS
Galis has performed admirably thus far with a 25 homer pace to go with a solid batting average and plenty of RBIs and runs. Even if he takes a sizeable step back, fantasy owners would still have someone they can rely on.

Tucker Barnhart photo 499. Tucker Barnhart C
Barnhart doesn't have the best bat, but his elite defense will keep him on the field for nearly 500 at-bats again. In a killer Red's lineup, that should be plenty to get him the counting stats he needs to be draftable.
