Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Gerrit Cole Note

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.

Aaron Judge Note

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.

Gleyber Torres Note

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.

Aroldis Chapman Note

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.

James Paxton Note

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.

Gary Sanchez Note

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.

Giancarlo Stanton Note

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.

DJ LeMahieu Note

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.

Masahiro Tanaka Note

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.

Luke Voit Note

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.

J.A. Happ Note

Luis Severino Note

Severino likely won't be back until late August or early September as there is no need for the Yankees to rush him back. Although you will only get a few weeks of production, he will still be worth hanging onto as we are likely talking about a top 20 starting pitcher once he is activated.

Gio Urshela Note

The Yankees have been surprised with this kid as he hit .305 in the first half. The batting average will drop a bit and there won't be much power, but if he keeps playing every day in this lineup, he'll be worth owning and using every week.

Brett Gardner Note
Brett Gardner photo 247. Brett Gardner LF,CF
Gardner is once again providing plenty of runs and RBIs for fantasy owners and just so happens to be on pace for 25 homers which off-sets his drop in steals that came with age. Fantasy owners can continue to rely on Gardner as a OF4.

Zack Britton Note

Not only is Aroldis Chapman ahead of Britton in New York, but they also have Betances and Chad Green roaming around the pen. Chances are that Britton would get the first crack at saves if Aroldis went down, but it's no guarantee.

Adam Ottavino Note
Adam Ottavino photo 325. Adam Ottavino RP
As expected, Ottavino has been sensational outside of Coors Field. Even with Yankee Stadium being a hitter's haven, Ottavino carries a sub-two ERA with 61 Ks in 43 innings. Don't expect saves in this crowded pen though.

Chad Green Note
Chad Green photo 444. Chad Green SP,RP
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.

Clint Frazier Note

Frazier was by no means a star while he was up, but was surely good enough that the very second he gets the call again, he should be a top waiver priority even if it comes with him being dealt to another team before the deadline.

Chris Iannetta Note

Iannetta has been getting only 30% of the playing time for Colorado, and while he is playing well, that isn't enough to warrant rostering him in fantasy.
