Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. photo 68. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 3B
Prior to the home run derby, Guerrero's start had been so bad that many were beginning to call him a bust. Let's not forget that this is one of the best prospects in the last decade. Make a move for him before his owner snaps out of it.

The Blue Jays' closer role is not as coveted as some others, but Giles has certainly made the most of it with 57 first half Ks, an ERA below 2.00 and a WHIP south of 1.10. He isn't quite a top tier closer, but is close.

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.

As always, Grichuk is providing some pop to go with runs and RBIs. There is, of course, a batting average well below .250 to accompany the benefits in the other categories. This makes him a fringe candidate for a roster spot in standard-sized leagues.

Gurriel was so awful to open the season the Toronto sent him back to the minors. He responded by earning his job back then taking the league by storm. Heading into the break, he was one of the most exciting middle infielders in the game and that should continue throughout the remainder of the year.

It is tempting to get excited when you hear Biggio's name, but he was not a top prospect by any stretch of the imagination and while he may provide some power and speed, the batting average will likely kill you.

Jansen's underlying stats have been screaming positive regression all season and over the last few weeks, it has started to turn around. While he isn't quite a top 12 catcher, he should be on your radar as a future waiver wire add if he keeps hitting.
