Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Jose Abreu photo 52. Jose Abreu 1B,DH
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.

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.

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.

Lucas Giolito photo 119. Lucas Giolito SP
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.

Tim Anderson photo 125. Tim Anderson SS
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.

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.

Garcia isn't even going to finish the season with 10 homers, but he offers some speed and is on pace for 100 runs thanks to a quality .290 batting average and every day playing time for the White Sox. You can use him without regret although he won't be a world saver.

James McCann photo 304. James McCann C
James McCann has been raking for the White Sox with a .320 batting average through the first half to go with some power and even the most steals among all catchers in fantasy. He is due to regress some, but is still a no-doubt top 12 catcher in the second half.

Cease has struggled in his first few starts since being promoted but he definitely has fantasy-relevant stuff and even if you don't want to own him now, keep him on waiver wire speed-dial.

Kelvin Herrera photo 423. Kelvin Herrera RP
Herrera was presumably signed to close for the White Sox, but they also added Alex Colome who has closing experience. This one is too close to call for now so you may want to add both in a late round just to make sure you get some saves.

Welington Castillo photo 438. Welington Castillo C
Castillo only saw 49 games worth of action last season, but his bat was still quality when he played. Over the last five years, he averages 26 homers with a .261 BA and 85 RBIs per 162 games, so now that he is starting, fantasy owners can expect useful production out of him.
