Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Bryce Harper photo 22. Bryce Harper CF,RF
It is hilarious that an .850 OPS is a major disappointment for someone like Harper. He has actually been solid in fantasy as well thanks to 115 combined RBIs and runs thus far. Sure, the batting average is still low, but overall, no one should be complaining about his production.

Aaron Nola photo 33. Aaron Nola SP
Nola began the season much like many of the other aces: with horrible ratios and fantasy owners all devastated. He has fixed whatever issues he may have been having, however, and is now roaring back in both ERA and WHIP while striking out everyone in sight.

Rhys Hoskins photo 48. Rhys Hoskins 1B,LF
You can say what you want about Hoskins' potential, and while it may be true, the fact of the matter is that he has never contributed in the batting average department and has actually been propped up quite a bit by batted ball luck to even keep him above .260. He will provide RBIs, runs and homers, of course, but is more of a sell candidate than a buy-low.

Jean Segura photo 88. Jean Segura SS
While Segura doesn't have elite power or speed, he is offering plenty of both to go along with a 100 run, 75 RBI pace and a solid batting average. All of that combined makes him a useful player worthy of seeing your starting lineup every day.

Realmuto may be struggling so far compared to expectations, but he certainly hasn't hurt you with a BA over .270 to go with double-digit homers and a handful of steals. He may not be the top overall fantasy catcher but he could be in the secound half.

Hector Neris photo 167. Hector Neris RP
Neris has had a rough month for the Phillies but he is still closing games and overall, has a solid first half line with over 50 Ks and a WHIP south of 1.20. He should be rostered in every league.

Cesar Hernandez photo 192. Cesar Hernandez 2B
You may not feel sexy running Hernandez out there in your lineup every day, but as is always the case, Hernandez isn't making anyone regret spending a late round pick on his reliable production in all five categories.

Scott Kingery photo 221. Scott Kingery 2B,3B,SS,LF,CF
Kingery was white-hot for a month and has since come back down to earth like Tim Anderson. While Kingery is a quality ballplayer, his underlying metrics suggest the regression will continue coming, albeit with some power and speed to soften the blow.

Andrew McCutchen photo 226. Andrew McCutchen LF,CF,RF
McCutchen might not be that first round pick he once was when we were getting 30 homers, 20 steals and a .320 batting average, but he is still a plenty capable fantasy asset. He is as durable as they come and has managed 20+ homers in 8 straight seasons. Not only that. but he still steals double-digit bags per year and is moving into by far the best ballpark of his career so don't be surprised if we get a resurgence.

Maikel Franco photo 258. Maikel Franco 3B
Although Franco isn't going to help your fantasy team's batting average and he only has mediocre power, there is worth in the fact that he plays almost every day in one of the best lineups in baseball. With that will come both RBIs and runs.

David Robertson photo 261. David Robertson RP
It was easy to forget how great Robertson is since he only managed 19 saves over the past two seasons. He has racked up 88 Ks per season and excellent ratios over the last 8 years, however. With plenty of save opportunities in store, we could see him return to being a top 10 closer this year.

Jake Arrieta photo 276. Jake Arrieta SP
Arrieta is merely a streamer at this point, and one that won't even strike out many hitters even in a solid matchup so don't hesitate to drop him if you need a roster spot.

Nick Pivetta photo 288. Nick Pivetta SP,RP
Pivetta flashed a few good starts after he was called back up but then plummeted in value again and was sent to the bullpen. He is worth keeping an eye on, however, in case anything changes.

Jay Bruce photo 314. Jay Bruce 1B,LF,RF
Most gave up on Bruce before the season because he was so awful in 2018, but he was struggling through plantar fasciitis. Now that he is healthy, Bruce just keeps mashing with 24 homers headed into the break. He is good bet to keep hitting if he can stay on the field.

Blake Parker photo 323. Blake Parker RP
After Parker signed with the Twins, many assumed he will be the closer, but it seems as though Trevor May is the favorite. In fact, Parker is likely the third-best reliever in this bullpen behind May and Rogers so beware on draft day.

Velasquez is back in the rotation, and while many games will be a total trainwreck, he does have some strikeout upside and posts solid streaming performances every so often.
