Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Elvis Andrus photo 98. Elvis Andrus SS
After catching everyone off guard in 2017 with the #1 fantasy shortstop performance, Andrus took a huge step back last year. He seems to be back on track, however, with a 15/35 pace and a .300 batting average heading into the break.

Mazara has only supplied 12 homers in the first half despite all his raw power. With that said, batting in the middle of the order for Texas definitely comes with his perks, as you can see with his 90 RBI, 90 run pace through the break.

You may not feel great about Minor repeating his first half and you shouldn't, but even with extreme regression, he would still be well worth owning. Don't be surprised when he finishes with 200 Ks and an ERA below 3.5.

Choo may be getting old but he certainly isn't slowing down and may finish the year with 25 homers, 15 steals, 110 runs and a batting average near .300. While he is by no means a superstar, that would be a tremendous second outfielder.

It seemed like only a matter of time before the Rangers would turn back to Leclerc who has been excellent since removed from the closer role. It may happen due to performance or perhaps if Kelley's MRI doesn't show up as they'd hope. When it does, Leclerc may be a top 10 closer.

Lynn may struggle to keep his ERA below 4.00 in that ballpark but with 240 Ks and 17 wins by year's end, fantasy owners will have no trouble looking past the ERA issue. Lynn is solidly a top 30 fantasy starter from this point forward.

Odor did his thing for a while where he was a total trainwreck, and while the batting average is still below .200, he has started to play much better of late and is, as always, producing in both the homer and stolen base departments.

Among all the fantasy breakout players, Santana may be the biggest surprise with double-digit homers and steals in the first half to go with a batting average above .300. All of those numbers are likely to take a dip, but even with that being the case, he should still be owned in every league.

Kelley is technically the closer for Texas and hasn't done all that bad, but with Jose Leclerc right behind him, there is no guarantee Kelley will have the job next week, let alone for the rest of the season.
