Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Matt Chapman photo 56. Matt Chapman 3B
Chapman entered the All-Star break on pace for 100 runs, 100 RBIs and 35 homers. That batting average isn't ideal, but those are the numbers of a bonafide stud. If drafts were tomorrow, he'd be top 60 without a doubt.

Davis has dropped off in power this season, but we all know that at the drop of a hat, he can rattle off a dozen homers in a month and quickly climb that leaderboard. He is still be all means a top 25 fantasy outfielder even with is frustrating first half.

If Olson hadn't been injured to start the year, he likely would have been a top 100 pick. Since returning from the IL, he has done nothing to change the narrative so he should continue to be treated as though he is that top 100 player.

As incredible as Hendricks has been with his 1.15 ERA and 1.01 WHIP to go with 69 Ks in 55 innings, he happens to share a roster with Blake Treinen, who may not be as great this season, but was the best closer in baseball last year. You can use Hendricks without a doubt, but know saves aren't going to be a big part of the equation.

Semien's batting average has been better than expected, and while it may come down over the rest of the season, his 25 homer pace with a handful of steals will certainly make him a worthwhile start for fantasy owners.

Ramon Laureano photo 182. Ramon Laureano RF
Believe it or not, Laureano is on pace for 30 homers, 20 steals and 100 runs. While that may not keep up, it is worth noting that he has performed as a top 50 fantasy asset thus far so even if he drops off a cliff, fantasy owners should keep running him out in their lineup every night.

Blake Treinen photo 188. Blake Treinen RP
Treinen has been a major disappointment for the A's with a WHIP now above 1.60 and while he is still considered the closer, that may quickly change if the struggles continue since Liam Hendriks is pitching out of his mind.

Stephen Piscotty photo 211. Stephen Piscotty RF
Piscotty was terrific last season for the A's, but has come back down to reality a bit this year with a subpar batting average and not much in the way of power. He still has upside for more, but for now, fantasy owners shouldn't count on his production.

Jurickson Profar photo 319. Jurickson Profar 1B,2B,3B,SS
Profar has been downright awful this season for fantasy owners, batting just .212. With that said, he is still on track for 18 homers and double-digit steals so if he can turn the batting average around, we may have a fantasy impact player again.

Mike Fiers photo 341. Mike Fiers SP
Fiers is getting the job done this season with a 1.12 WHIP and an ERA well below 4.00. With that has come plenty of wins, but there aren't enough strikeouts to put him in the top 50 fantasy starters.

Tanner Roark photo 394. Tanner Roark SP
Roark may not have the best stuff in the world but he has managed to strike out 100 batters already in just 102 innings to go with solid ratios. It may not feel great, but you can use him in most starts.

Jesus Luzardo photo 408. Jesus Luzardo SP
Luzardo is back on the IL for the A's and it now seems likely that he won't throw a ball again this season. If the A's decide to be aggressive, however, Luzardo has the stuff to surge onto the scene in September.
