Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Josh Hader Note

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.

Lorenzo Cain Note

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.

Ryan Braun Note

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.

Justin Smoak Note

According to Baseball Savant's Statcast metrics, no one in baseball has been more unlucky than Justin Smoak. He is actually hitting the ball harder and at a better angle than he did in his 2017 breakout season so it is time to buy the second-half bounceback.

Keston Hiura Note

It took long enough but the Brewers finally called Hiura back after he destroyed minor league pitching. The kid does not only have an excellent future, but he is polished and ready to provide fantasy owners vintage Robinson Cano like numbers.

Brandon Woodruff Note

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.

Omar Narvaez Note

It is hard to imagine that anyone saw this coming, but Narvaz has been tremendous to open the season with a batting average near .300 and a dozen homers. While it may not continue at this pace, there is no doubt that he is a top 12 catcher from this point forward.

Avisail Garcia Note

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.

Jeremy Jeffress Note

Josh Hader is the current closer in Milwaukee with Knebel out for the season but once Jeffress returns from the IL, that may quickly change. Jeffress is only owned in about 20% of leagues and should be among the top pickups with this potential outcome on the horizon.

Eric Lauer Note

Lauer has had some dreadful outings in Coors this year, but other than that, he has consistently been producing strong performances. You can use him in the vast majority of his starts as a SP5.

Freddy Peralta Note

There is no doubt that Peralta has been a disappointment but has still been piling up strikeouts and has been good enough out of the pen the last month that there may be some hope remaining that he ends up back in the rotation before long.

Luis Urias Note

Urias was rough in his debut, but don't give up on him quite yet. Rather, he is among the top stashes remaining in the minor leagues. When he does get another chance, he will be worth owning in most leagues assuming the Padres or his new team (via trade) gives him a chance.

Eric Sogard Note
Eric Sogard photo 403. Eric Sogard 2B,SS,DH
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.

Orlando Arcia Note
Orlando Arcia photo 417. Orlando Arcia SS
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.
