Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Mike Trout photo 1. Mike Trout CF,DH
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.

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.

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.

Robles has been an excellent reliever for the surprise Angels, entering the second half with 46 Ks, a 2.56 ERA and a WHIP below 1.10. While that may not quite keep up, he is a strong bet to help fantasy owners in the second half.

Simmons has continued to be exactly what fantasy owners expected: a safe source of quality batting average with a little speed and not much more. There is a place on a fantasy roster for a player like that.if you are in a deeper league.

Kole Calhoun photo 261. Kole Calhoun RF
Calhoun has outperformed expectations thus far with a Kyle Schwarber like line of 20+ homers with a lackluster batting average. He also carries a 100/90 runs/RBIs pace up into the break so don't hesitate to scoop him up if you still can.

Griffin Canning photo 266. Griffin Canning SP
After a strong start for Canning, he has come crashing back down to earth over the past month. There may still be some streaming starts that you can use him in but feel free to drop him now if you haven't already.

David Fletcher photo 339. David Fletcher 2B,3B
Fletcher isn't going to help you win the home run category, nor will he steal double-digit bases, but he might reach 80 runs with a batting average near .300 so make room for him if he is still available in your league.

Brian Goodwin photo 582. Brian Goodwin LF,CF,RF
Goodwin flashed some fantasy appeal earlier on in the season but now that he is on the IL, he can safely be ignored in fantasy leagues.

La Stella was among the top breakout infielders this year before going on the IL for 2 to 3 months. If you have enough room on your IL or even bench, he may be worth holding onto for the head to head playoff stretch.
