Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Max Scherzer Note
Max Scherzer photo 1. Max Scherzer SP - WSH
With a short IL stint, Verlander has passed up Scherzer as the top performer so far this year but the stay should be brief, as there is no better fantasy pitcher in the game when healthy than Scherzer. In fact, he may be #4 in all of fantasy behind only Trout, Yelich and Bellinger.
31 weeks ago
Justin Verlander Note
Justin Verlander photo 2. Justin Verlander SP - HOU
Verlander's 0.85 WHIP is almost unbelievable, as is the fact that he has already struck out 172 batters with 40% of the season to go. While he is firmly entrenched in the top tier, he is still behind Scherzer as the #1 starter in fantasy baseball.
31 weeks ago
Jacob deGrom Note
Jacob deGrom photo 3. Jacob deGrom SP - NYM
deGrom won't finish with the magical sub 2.00 ERA we saw last season but with the way things are going, it should once again end up below 3.00 with well over 220 Ks. The wins, of course, won't be there on the Mets, but even so, he is a clear-cut SP1.
31 weeks ago
Gerrit Cole Note
Gerrit Cole photo 4. Gerrit Cole SP - NYY
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.
31 weeks ago
Walker Buehler Note
Walker Buehler photo 5. Walker Buehler SP - LAD
Buehler was exceptional in the second half last year then had mighty struggles to begin the 2019 campaign. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief, however, as he is back to pulverizing hitters like the top five starter he is.
31 weeks ago
Aaron Nola Note
Aaron Nola photo 6. Aaron Nola SP - PHI
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.
31 weeks ago
Stephen Strasburg Note
Stephen Strasburg photo 7. Stephen Strasburg SP - WSH
Strasburg has never put it together for a full season, and while this isn't exactly the best we've seen from him, he may finally finish the season as that top 10 starting pitcher we always imagined him to be with 18 wins, 250 Ks and strong ratios.
31 weeks ago
Zack Greinke Note
Zack Greinke photo 8. Zack Greinke SP - HOU
Greinke isn't your prototypical strikeout heavy ace but he is as reliable as they come in the ratios which will, of course, translate to plenty of wins as well. If he is your SP1 on your roster, you should feel pretty good about your team.
31 weeks ago
Clayton Kershaw Note
Clayton Kershaw photo 9. Clayton Kershaw SP - LAD
Kershaw certainly isn't the same dominant pitcher that everyone was drafting in the first round every year but that by no means implies he is washed up. Rather, he keeps chugging along with a WHIP near 1.00, a sub 3 ERA and nearly a K-per inning. That will do.
31 weeks ago
Patrick Corbin Note
Patrick Corbin photo 10. Patrick Corbin SP - WSH
Corbin has seen his ratios drop a bit from last season's incredible breakout, but he is still going to strikeout 220 batters and don't be surprised if he ends up at 15 wins despite struggling to reach double-digits in the first 4 months.
31 weeks ago
Trevor Bauer Note
Trevor Bauer photo 11. Trevor Bauer SP - CIN
Bauer's season has been a series of major highs and major lows. In all, it has come to a mildly disappointing first half, but somehow still a SP1. It seems now that Cleveland will hang onto him since they are back in the race so perhaps we will get more of the same in the second half.
31 weeks ago
Charlie Morton Note
Charlie Morton photo 12. Charlie Morton SP - TB
Morton was about as safe of a late-round starting pitcher steal as you'll ever find.Even so, no one anticipated the year he is having with a 250 K pace to go with incredible ratios and perhaps 16 or 17 wins if he keeps it up in the second half.
31 weeks ago
Noah Syndergaard Note
Noah Syndergaard photo 13. Noah Syndergaard SP - NYM
Thor may have elite stuff but the strikeout numbers and ERA are definitely not there this season. That can always change with a talent like this, but it is by no means a guarantee, nor are wins when he pitches in front of a lousy Mets' offense.
31 weeks ago
Luis Castillo Note
Luis Castillo photo 14. Luis Castillo SP - CIN
Castillo was everyone's favorite breakout candidate and boy has he sure delivered. Through the first half, fantasy owners have received nearly 140 Ks, a sub 2.50 ERA and a WHIP hovering around 1.10. He may very well be a top 10 starting pitcher at the end of the season.
31 weeks ago
Aroldis Chapman Note
Aroldis Chapman photo 15. Aroldis Chapman RP - NYY
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.
31 weeks ago
Jose Berrios Note
Jose Berrios photo 16. Jose Berrios SP - MIN
Berrios may not be the strikeout pitcher we saw when he entered the league with such electric stuff, but he is still getting the job done, and perhaps better than any other point in his career. Fantasy owners have a top 20 starter in Berrios.
31 weeks ago
Shane Bieber Note
Shane Bieber photo 17. Shane Bieber SP - CLE
Underlying stats all screamed that Bieber was due for a huge season and anyone who believed it is dancing in the streets right now. It seems to be legitimate too so don't be getting the crazy idea of trying to sell him while his stock is high.
31 weeks ago
Jack Flaherty Note
Jack Flaherty photo 18. Jack Flaherty SP - STL
Flaherty hasn't been anywhere near as strong as he was as a rookie, but even so, 200 Ks appears to be likely and the WHIP is strong once again. If the Cardinals start supporting him at the plate, he may finish with a dozen wins too which isn't bad for a SP3.
31 weeks ago
Hyun-Jin Ryu Note
Hyun-Jin Ryu photo 19. Hyun-Jin Ryu SP - TOR
As we enter August, Ryu is still rocking a sub 1.00 WHIP and a sub 2.00 ERA. Now, whether he can sustain that is clearly a no, but who would complain if he finishes the year with a 2.50 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 200 Ks? Certainly not the guy who drafted him in the 20th round.
31 weeks ago
Mike Clevinger Note
Mike Clevinger photo 20. Mike Clevinger SP - CLE
Clevinger spent quite a bit of time on the IL but since he has returned, it has been absolute gold. With the way he is going, he may move up from top 20 starting pitchers to top 10 by the end of the season.
31 weeks ago
Kenley Jansen Note
Kenley Jansen photo 21. Kenley Jansen RP - LAD
Jansen has been so good for so long that you might automatically assume him to be the top closer once again in 2019, but last year, he was nowhere close to it. Rather, his ERA plummeted to 3.01 with "just" 82 Ks. You can still grab him among the top tier, but you shouldn't even be considering taking him in the first five or six rounds.
47 weeks ago
James Paxton Note
James Paxton photo 22. James Paxton SP - NYY
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.
31 weeks ago
Brad Hand Note
Brad Hand photo 23. Brad Hand RP - CLE
Cleveland struck gold in acquiring Brad Hand last year. He has been nothing but magic for them, continuing into this year when he struck out over 60 first half batters and already executed more than 25 saves.
31 weeks ago
Kirby Yates Note
Kirby Yates photo 24. Kirby Yates RP - SD
Yates is the latest of a long line of dominant closers for the Padres. He has been the single best fantasy closer through the first half thanks to loads of save opportunities to go with incredible ratios and that is all expected to continue.
31 weeks ago
Roberto Osuna Note
Roberto Osuna photo 25. Roberto Osuna RP - HOU
The change of scenery has proved useful for Osuna, who has done nothing but dominate since the deal to Houston. While he won't strike out 100 like some of the names above him, Osuna is a safe bet for 35 saves and excellent ratios.
31 weeks ago
Josh Hader Note
Josh Hader photo 26. Josh Hader RP - MIL
Hader has run into a bit of a cold spell in July but that is bound to happen to even the best relievers at one point or another. The fact of the matter is, he is on pace for 140 Ks again to go with 35+ saves and sparkling ratios.
31 weeks ago
Madison Bumgarner Note
Madison Bumgarner photo 27. Madison Bumgarner SP - ARI
Bumgarner is pitching well again with over a strikeout per inning and a strong WHIP but it could go downhill quick if he is traded to a ballpark like Yankee Stadium. Even if it happens, he would likely still be somewhat useful, just as a SP5 instead of SP3.
31 weeks ago
David Price Note
David Price photo 28. David Price SP - LAD
Price was so much better just a few years ago that it is easy to think of him as washed up, but he is still accomplishing plenty for fantasy owners, just not at the ace level. Rather, his numbers are more in the SP3 range but he remains reliable.
31 weeks ago
Zack Wheeler Note
Zack Wheeler photo 29. Zack Wheeler SP - PHI
Wheeler was so terrific in the second half last year that it seemed inevitable that he would at least have a solid season, but that hasn't happened yet. He still has the stuff to finish strong but at this point, fantasy owners can't say he is a SP3.
31 weeks ago
Edwin Diaz Note
Edwin Diaz photo 30. Edwin Diaz RP - NYM
Diaz went from hero to zero in a short time. Granted, he still has 59 first half Ks but with an ERA above 5.00, many owners are wondering what they should do with Diaz. Keep him as long as he has the job but hoping for a turnaround may be too much to ask for.
31 weeks ago
Craig Kimbrel Note
Craig Kimbrel photo 31. Craig Kimbrel RP - CHC
Cubs fans have certainly hoped for more than Kimbrel has given them since the signing, but that should turn around quickly now that his version of Spring Training is officially up. Fantasy owners can expect a second tier closer over the second half.
31 weeks ago
Masahiro Tanaka Note
Masahiro Tanaka photo 32. Masahiro Tanaka SP - NYY
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.
31 weeks ago
Robbie Ray Note
Robbie Ray photo 33. Robbie Ray SP - ARI
Over the last few year's Ray has been the epitome of a volatile pitcher. This year hasn't been any different, as he still struggles with the home run and as a result, carries an ERA near 4. The strikeouts will still be there, of course, but until he fixes that ERA, he is merely a SP3.
31 weeks ago
Sean Doolittle Note
Sean Doolittle photo 34. Sean Doolittle RP - WSH
Doolittle is no longer a world beater for the Nationals or fantasy owners, but they can't complain about 48 first half Ks, nor the respectable ratios he continues to put up each and every month.
31 weeks ago
Blake Snell Note
Blake Snell photo 35. Blake Snell SP - TB
Every underlying metric last year was screaming regression and this year it is the very opposite, which should leave fantasy owners to expect somewhere in between during the second half. It it worth putting in an offer in case you can still buy-low.
31 weeks ago
Will Smith Note
Will Smith photo 36. Will Smith RP - ATL
Smith has been lights out for the Giants with 61 first-half Ks and a WHIP below 1.00. So long as he remains the closer, he will be an excellent fantasy option, but it seems likely San Francisco will deal him before long.
31 weeks ago
Yu Darvish Note
Yu Darvish photo 37. Yu Darvish SP - CHC
Darvish was so awful to start the season but after the break, he said he was feeling 110% and since then he has been dominant. There is a chance he'll continue the recent success and carry your rotation the rest of the season, but it is by no means the most likely scenario.
31 weeks ago
Ken Giles Note
Ken Giles photo 38. Ken Giles RP - TOR
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.
31 weeks ago
Kyle Hendricks Note
Kyle Hendricks photo 39. Kyle Hendricks SP - CHC
Hendricks still carries an excellent WHIP and the ERA isn't far behind. He will never be a SP1 or even SP2, but fantasy owners can feel safe putting Hendricks on the mound most every start even if the strikeouts won't pile up.
31 weeks ago
Matthew Boyd Note
Matthew Boyd photo 40. Matthew Boyd SP - DET
Boyd has been extraordinary with 160 Ks already and while that is near certain to continue, he could see a further jump if Detroit does end up dealing him to a contender where he can get some wins, and specifically in the NL where his ratios would also benefit.
31 weeks ago
Eduardo Rodriguez Note
Eduardo Rodriguez photo 41. Eduardo Rodriguez SP - BOS
Rodriguez has strong strikeout stuff and is picking up wins with the Red Sox lineup behind him, but neither his ERA nor WHIP are above average. With that combination, we are looking at a fringe SP4/SP3.
31 weeks ago
Raisel Iglesias Note
Raisel Iglesias photo 42. Raisel Iglesias RP - CIN
Iglesias hasn't racked up as many saves as fantasy owners had hoped for, nor are his ratios what you'd have expected, but he did have 50 first half Ks and is a strong bet to bounceback in the second half.
31 weeks ago
Cole Hamels Note
Cole Hamels photo 43. Cole Hamels SP - ATL
Hamels isn't the same pitcher he once was, but the ratios are still running strong and with that, we can expect the wins to bounceback in the second half. He won't strike out 200 batters, but fantasy owners have gotten more than they asked for when they drafted him in the middle of drafts this Spring.
31 weeks ago
Kenta Maeda Note
Kenta Maeda photo 44. Kenta Maeda SP,RP - MIN
Maeda carries an incredible WHIP but the ERA isn't exactly there so far. He'll get some wins and is racking up a strikeout per inning, but until that ERA comes down, he will remain outside the top 25 fantasy starters.
31 weeks ago
German Marquez Note
German Marquez photo 45. German Marquez SP - COL
Marquez has been downright dreadful at home this year but is once again solid on the road. You can continue to use him in half his starts while we wait out that top 20 potential and see if it returns.
31 weeks ago
Sonny Gray Note
Sonny Gray photo 46. Sonny Gray SP - CIN
Sonny Gray was a disaster the last few years in New York but has reinvented himself with the Reds and made the All-Star team as a result. It doesn't appear to be a fluke either, as all the underlying data supports his resurgence into the fantasy scene.
31 weeks ago
Mike Soroka Note
Mike Soroka photo 47. Mike Soroka SP - ATL
Soroka was blazing for a while and has come back down to earth a little. It should continue to be a slide over the second half as his batted ball data catches up to his stats but he is still without a doubt a top 40 starting pitcher at this point.
31 weeks ago
Jose Quintana Note
Jose Quintana photo 48. Jose Quintana SP - CHC
Quintana may be a bigger name, but he isn't producing strikeouts nor strong ratios so, until one or several of those turnaround, there isn't much sense in owning him.
31 weeks ago
Caleb Smith Note
Caleb Smith photo 49. Caleb Smith SP - MIA
Smith may be the most exciting of several excellent young Marlins pitchers. Granted, he won't get to even a dozen wins but 200 Ks is a distinct possibility since he has regained his excellent strikeout numbers from prior to his injury that ended the 2018 season.
46 weeks ago
Miles Mikolas Note
Miles Mikolas photo 50. Miles Mikolas SP - STL
Mikolas was strong last year but it hasn't exactly carried over this year. The ratios aren't bad, especially his WHIP but without Ks being there, he might not be worthy of a fantasy roster spot.
31 weeks ago
Jose Leclerc Note
Jose Leclerc photo 51. Jose Leclerc RP - TEX
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.
31 weeks ago
Jon Lester Note
Jon Lester photo 52. Jon Lester SP - CHC
Lester was excellent in 2018 and started the 2019 season on fire, As the underlying metrics all suggested, the crash downward was inevitable and here we are with his ERA flirting with 4.00 and his WHIP at 1.35. He is still useful, no doubt, but as a SP5 instead of a SP2.
31 weeks ago
Mike Minor Note
Mike Minor photo 53. Mike Minor SP - TEX
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.
31 weeks ago
Alex Colome Note
Alex Colome photo 54. Alex Colome RP - CWS
Colome again has strong ratios with a WHIP now sitting at 0.80 but his 30 Ks through 39 first half innings is certainly nothing to write home about. Fantasy owners have a good one for sure, but he isn't in the elite conversation.
31 weeks ago
Joey Lucchesi Note
Joey Lucchesi photo 55. Joey Lucchesi SP - SD
Lucchesi is by no means a must-own, but he has been getting the job done with nearly a strikeout per inning to go with a strong WHIP. You can get by with him as your SP5, or preferably as a streamer.
31 weeks ago
Liam Hendriks Note
Liam Hendriks photo 56. Liam Hendriks RP - OAK
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.
31 weeks ago
Joe Musgrove Note
Joe Musgrove photo 57. Joe Musgrove SP - PIT
Musgrove has excellent stuff and could explode in the second half but fantasy owners definitely shouldn't rely on that. Rather, he is primarily a streaming starter that you use in strong matchups at home.
31 weeks ago
Hector Neris Note
Hector Neris photo 58. Hector Neris RP - PHI
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.
31 weeks ago
Carlos Martinez Note
Carlos Martinez photo 59. Carlos Martinez RP - STL
Martinez has performed well as the Cardinals closer and if that were expected to continue, he'd be a lock for the top 15 relievers, but it seems as though they might dangle him at the deadline and who knows what his role would be in a new situation.
31 weeks ago
Dallas Keuchel Note
Dallas Keuchel photo 60. Dallas Keuchel SP - CWS
As always, Keuchel isn't striking anyone out but he is pitching deep into games and picking up wins with solid but unspectacular ratios. He is a solid SP5 in fantasy leagues.
31 weeks ago
Carlos Carrasco Note
Carlos Carrasco photo 61. Carlos Carrasco SP,RP - CLE
We haven't heard whether Carrasco will return this season, and while he would likely be a useful fantasy asset if he did, it doesn't make sense to hold out hope and hang onto him if you need to clear up a roster spot somewhere.
31 weeks ago
Lance Lynn Note
Lance Lynn photo 62. Lance Lynn SP - TEX
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.
31 weeks ago
Jake Odorizzi Note
Jake Odorizzi photo 63. Jake Odorizzi SP - MIN
As great as Odorizzi has been, his HR/FB rate is unsustainable so that ERA should slowly creep back toward his career average. There is no doubt he has improved, however, just probably not all the way to a SP2 like we've seen so far this season.
31 weeks ago
Kyle Gibson Note
Kyle Gibson photo 64. Kyle Gibson SP - TEX
Gibson is not especially impressive in any of the five primary categories but he is solid in each of them so he makes for a solid 5th or even 4th starting pitcher.
31 weeks ago
Shane Greene Note
Shane Greene photo 65. Shane Greene RP - ATL
Greene is this year's version of Blake Treinen, posting absurd ratios while executing every save in sight. It may not keep up at quite this rate, but you can be sure he'll fall into the top 10 closers through the first half.
31 weeks ago
Marcus Stroman Note
Marcus Stroman photo 66. Marcus Stroman SP - NYM
Once again, Stroman is pitching deep into games but without many strikeouts. The big difference, however, has been a vast improvement in his ratios and that may further improve if he gets dealt to a better ballpark and perhaps an NL team.
31 weeks ago
Wade Davis Note
Wade Davis photo 67. Wade Davis RP - COL
Davis has had ups and downs in his career but it has never been as rough as this year's 6 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. Assuming this continues, he may soon be replaced by Scott Oberg as the closer.
31 weeks ago
J.A. Happ Note
J.A. Happ photo 68. J.A. Happ SP - NYY
Andrew Heaney Note
Andrew Heaney photo 69. Andrew Heaney SP - LAA
Max Fried Note
Max Fried photo 70. Max Fried SP - ATL
Fried entered the second half on the IL but when he returns, fantasy owners have a solid fifth starting pitcher who will pick up wins, strike out a handful of batters most start and won't kill your ratios at all.
31 weeks ago
Taylor Rogers Note
Taylor Rogers photo 71. Taylor Rogers RP - MIN
The Twins entered the season with a three-headed-monster at the back end of their bullpen and it was Rogers who emerged as the clear closer thanks to 57 first half Ks to go with a sub 2 ERA and sub 1 WHIP.
31 weeks ago
Wade Miley Note
Wade Miley photo 72. Wade Miley SP - CIN
It may feel odd rostering someone like Wade Miley over a big name like Mad-Bum or Chris Archer, but with the way he has pitched, Miley needs to be owned and used everywhere. His ERA may end up south of 3.00 by the end of the season and his WHIP is great too.
31 weeks ago
Hansel Robles Note
Hansel Robles photo 73. Hansel Robles RP - LAA
Robles has been an excellent reliever for the surprise Angels, entering the second half with 46 Ks, a 2.56 ERA and a WHIP below 1.10. While that may not quite keep up, he is a strong bet to help fantasy owners in the second half.
31 weeks ago
Luis Severino Note
Luis Severino photo 74. Luis Severino SP - NYY
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.
31 weeks ago
Brandon Woodruff Note
Brandon Woodruff photo 75. Brandon Woodruff SP - MIL
Woodruff has been insane, striking out 133 first half batters to go with a 1.13 WHIP. You can look past that 3.53 ERA as the underlying metrics suggest it will come down in the second half, giving fantasy owners a total stud.
31 weeks ago
Brandon Workman Note
Brandon Workman photo 76. Brandon Workman RP - BOS
Workman has been terrific with 60 first-half Ks and incredible ratios. If you could add 20 saves to that, he would be elite, the Red Sox are insistent on keeping him in his current role while making Eovaldi the closer.
31 weeks ago
Emilio Pagan Note
Emilio Pagan photo 77. Emilio Pagan RP - SD
With Alvarado and Castillo both ahead of Pagan to begin the season, it seemed unlikely he would become a dominant closer, but here we are with him entering the second half with a sub 0.90 WHIP and 54 Ks in just 39 innings. He is the real deal.
31 weeks ago
Zac Gallen Note
Zac Gallen photo 78. Zac Gallen SP - ARI
Since his promotion, Gallen has merely been mediocre for fantasy owners, but he was so sensational in the minor leagues that you'd have to expect his MLB numbers to improve a bit over a larger sample size. Don't give up on him if he has another bad week or two,
31 weeks ago
Ross Stripling Note
Ross Stripling photo 79. Ross Stripling SP,RP - LAD
While not as terrific as last year, Stripling hasn't disappointed by any measure other than the fact that the Dodgers' insane rotational depth hasn't allowed for enough innings. While he starts, however, Stripling is well worth owning.
31 weeks ago
Yusei Kikuchi Note
Yusei Kikuchi photo 80. Yusei Kikuchi SP - SEA
Kikuchi's numbers from Japan translate to an MLB pitcher similar to Zack Wheeler last year, and like Wheeler, Kikuchi's arm could potentially blossom into much more to fantasy owners. He is by no means similar to Ohtani or Darvish before him, but 370 Ks and a 2.45 ERA in his last two seasons is nothing to sneeze at.
47 weeks ago
Steven Matz Note
Steven Matz photo 81. Steven Matz SP - NYM
Rich Hill Note
Rich Hill photo 82. Rich Hill SP - MIN
With so many players on the IL, it might not make sense to hold onto Hill who doesn't even have a timetable for return quite yet. He is always excellent when he pitches, however, so if he does return, scramble to scoop him back up.
31 weeks ago
Mychal Givens Note
Mychal Givens photo 83. Mychal Givens RP - BAL
While technically the closer, Givens hasn't had enough save opportunities to warrant putting up with his lackluster ratios. That may change in the second half but for now, you'd be better off rostering a setup man like Brandon Workman.
31 weeks ago
Ian Kennedy Note
Ian Kennedy photo 84. Ian Kennedy RP - KC
Greg Holland Note
Greg Holland photo 85. Greg Holland RP - KC
Holland had some struggles early on in St. Louis last year but has since then been lights out. He carries a 3.09 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP into the second half, and while be will never approach 100 Ks, he still strikes out 10 batters per nine.
31 weeks ago
Nathan Eovaldi Note
Nathan Eovaldi photo 86. Nathan Eovaldi SP,RP - BOS
The Red Sox have made it clear that Eovaldi is who they expect to fix their bullpen issues. Whether or not it lasts is anyone's guess, but for the time being, he is the man getting saves for this playoff contender so he needs to be owned.
31 weeks ago
Archie Bradley Note
Archie Bradley photo 87. Archie Bradley RP - ARI
Bradley isn't a 90 strikeout guy, nor should we expect an ERA south of 2.00, but he is the heavy favorite to get saves in Arizona, which certainly counts for something. Granted, they won't win 80 games, but even 35 saves is plenty to warrant a late-round pick.
47 weeks ago
Marco Gonzales Note
Marco Gonzales photo 88. Marco Gonzales SP - SEA
Rick Porcello Note
Rick Porcello photo 89. Rick Porcello SP - NYM
Porcello may have won a Cy Young but at this point in his career, there is no sense in even streaming him, let alone rostering him.
31 weeks ago
Matt Barnes Note
Matt Barnes photo 90. Matt Barnes RP - BOS
Barnes is no longer the closer with Eovaldi back off the IL, and his ratios won't be ideal, but fantasy owners can bet on another 50+ second half Ks while rostering him as a fallback saves option should Eovaldi hit the IL again.
31 weeks ago
Tyler Glasnow Note
Tyler Glasnow photo 91. Tyler Glasnow SP - TB
The Rays were already taking their time with Glasnow then he had a setback so his return is still up in the air. It could happen in August, or perhaps he will be shut down for the season. You can't drop him yet just in case, however, as he would deliver top 15 SP numbers the moment he returns.
31 weeks ago
Jeff Samardzija Note
Jeff Samardzija photo 92. Jeff Samardzija SP - SF
Pitching in San Francisco certainly helps any starter, and while you might not want to use Samardzija on the road, he can be relied on for strong ratios and some Ks in half his starts.
31 weeks ago
Mark Melancon Note
Mark Melancon photo 93. Mark Melancon RP - ATL
Will Smith is the closer for now in San Francisco but he hasn't been all that durable, plus he may be on the trade market before long as a coveted lefty setup man. Don't sleep on Melancon getting saves again within a few months.
47 weeks ago
Nick Pivetta Note
Nick Pivetta photo 94. Nick Pivetta SP,RP - PHI
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.
31 weeks ago
Luke Jackson Note
Luke Jackson photo 95. Luke Jackson RP - ATL
Jackson is on pace for well over 100 Ks this season and while his WHIP isn't great, he is racking up saves for a playoff contender and has virtually no competition for the job so fantasy owners can continue to rely on him.
31 weeks ago
Mike Fiers Note
Mike Fiers photo 96. Mike Fiers SP - OAK
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.
31 weeks ago
Yonny Chirinos Note
Yonny Chirinos photo 97. Yonny Chirinos SP,RP - TB
Chirinos may not have the most impressive underlying metrics, but he just keeps getting it done from a ratio standpoint and as expected, the wins have followed. Don't expect 200 Ks or anywhere close, but he is a plenty useful piece for your rotation.

Andrew Miller Note
Andrew Miller photo 98. Andrew Miller RP - STL
Carlos Martinez is now filling in for Jordan Hicks, but there are rumors that St. Louis is shopping him. If that were to happen, they may go with Gant or perhaps the lefty, Miller, who is back to cruising for the Cardinals.

Cody Allen Note
Cody Allen photo 99. Cody Allen RP - TEX
It seemed as though Ty Buttrey, Bedrosian and Anderson were going to compete for saves in LA, but then they signed Allen who figures to get the job. Don't be surprised if he losses the gig early, however, if he struggles like we saw last season. Don't consider him a lock for 25 saves again.

Pedro Strop Note
Pedro Strop photo 100. Pedro Strop RP - CIN
Brandon Morrow is technically the Cubs' closer, but it seems as though he will miss at least a month to open the season. Strop was named the replacement but hasn't been great thus far so let's see if he can straighten himself out before Morrow tries to take the job back.

Dinelson Lamet Note
Dinelson Lamet photo 101. Dinelson Lamet SP - SD
Lamet has allowed plenty of runs in his first three starts, but is striking out plenty of hitters and clearly has the upside that warrants owning him as a project who could explode in the second half.

Ryan Pressly Note
Ryan Pressly photo 102. Ryan Pressly RP - HOU
Pressly is one of the best relievers in baseball, but unfortunately that doesn't add up to enough fantasy production to reach the top 20, as saves are crucial. Still, should anything happen to Osuna, he would become an immediate top 5 closer.

Brad Peacock Note
Brad Peacock photo 103. Brad Peacock SP,RP - HOU
When Peacock returns to health, he is expected to be tossed back into the rotation even with rumors that Houston may acquire another arm. As long as Peacock continues starting, he will prove well worth a fantasy roster spot.

Mike Foltynewicz Note
Mike Foltynewicz photo 104. Mike Foltynewicz SP - ATL
Foltynewicz was tremendous last year but has been so bad once he returned from the IL that he is now in the minors and struggling there. Keep an eye on him, but it is probably a lost cause at this point.

Sergio Romo Note
Sergio Romo photo 111. Sergio Romo RP - MIN
Although he isn't the most exciting closer, Romo does, in fact, get the save opportunities for his team and isn't exactly struggling in the ratios. He won't strikeout even 60 batters this season but you can't find better on waivers.

Brendan McKay Note
Brendan McKay photo 112. Brendan McKay SP - TB
McKay has started out by pitching great in his first few appearances. While he might not exactly be an ace the rest of the season, he is certainly one rookie you can rely on over the second half, perhaps as a SP3.

Adam Ottavino Note
Adam Ottavino photo 113. Adam Ottavino RP - NYY
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.

Julio Teheran Note
Julio Teheran photo 114. Julio Teheran SP - LAA
Teheran is chugging along once again for the Braves with an ERA below 4.00 and a WHIP below 1.30. He won't strike out a batter per inning and doesn't have many wins yet but with the strong ratios, he is worth owning as a depth piece.

Blake Parker Note
Blake Parker photo 117. Blake Parker RP - PHI
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.

Trevor Williams Note

Diego Castillo Note
Diego Castillo photo 119. Diego Castillo SP,RP - TB
If you play in a deeper league, Castillo can be a ratio master that racks up plenty of saves, or better yet, if you employ the Marmol Strategy, Castillo qualifies as a starting pitcher so you can plug him on days where you don't have enough starters going.

Roenis Elias Note
Roenis Elias photo 120. Roenis Elias RP - WSH
Elias is having a rough go with an ERA north of 5, but he is the closer for Seattle and should get another 15 to even 25 save opportunities over the second half. That may be reason enough to put up with the lousy ratios.

Trevor May Note
Trevor May photo 121. Trevor May RP - MIN
May did not win the closer job in Minnesota. While he may get a few saves here and there, Rocco Baldelli is employing a true closer by committee approach. May can be used as a Josh Hader-lite, but otherwise is droppable.

Julio Urias Note
Julio Urias photo 122. Julio Urias SP,RP - LAD
When on the mound, Urias is about as good as it gets for a youngster with an ERA sitting at 2.25 and a WHIP below 1.00. The issue, of course, is that he only throws a handful of innings at most in a given week. There is still use for that, but not much more than someone like Ryan Pressley.

Alex Reyes Note
Alex Reyes photo 123. Alex Reyes RP - STL
Reyes suffered yet another injury in the minor leagues and was struggling with his command anyways. If he gets healthy and straightens out his stuff, he could be deadly by September in the bigs.

Josh James Note
Josh James photo 124. Josh James RP - HOU
James missed out on the rotation thanks to a Spring Training injury then proceeded to struggle in the bullpen, but he has been electric of late and may end up in the rotation after all in the coming weeks so keep a close eye on him.

Hunter Strickland Note
Hunter Strickland photo 129. Hunter Strickland RP - WSH
Strickland opened the year as the Mariners' closer but is now on the 60 day DL and isn't even guaranteed the job when or if he returns. There is no need to waste an IL spot on him for your fantasy roster.

Freddy Peralta Note
Freddy Peralta photo 130. Freddy Peralta SP,RP - MIL
There is no doubt that Peralta has been a disappointment but has still been piling up strikeouts and has been good enough out of the pen the last month that there may be some hope remaining that he ends up back in the rotation before long.
31 weeks ago
Jeremy Jeffress Note
Jeremy Jeffress photo 131. Jeremy Jeffress RP - CHC
Josh Hader is the current closer in Milwaukee with Knebel out for the season but once Jeffress returns from the IL, that may quickly change. Jeffress is only owned in about 20% of leagues and should be among the top pickups with this potential outcome on the horizon.
46 weeks ago
Brad Boxberger Note
Brad Boxberger photo 132. Brad Boxberger RP - MIA
Boxberger is expected to hold off Peralta for the Royals' closer job, and while it may not be the most envied role, he should still be able to compile 20 to 25 saves if he can hang onto the job. His ratios won't be ideal, but he does offer some K-upside as we've seen before.
47 weeks ago
Ryan Brasier Note
Ryan Brasier photo 133. Ryan Brasier RP - BOS
There was speculation that Brasier might take the Red Sox open closer role, but he was passed over for Matt Barnes. While there is a chance that doesn't last all season, you can safely drop Braiser for now.

Zack Britton Note
Zack Britton photo 134. Zack Britton RP - NYY
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.

Matt Strahm Note
Matt Strahm photo 135. Matt Strahm SP,RP - SD
Strahm has shown enough promise that we can keep an eye on him in the second half, but more likely than not, he will only be an occasional streamer in home games against easy opponents.

Dylan Cease Note
Dylan Cease photo 141. Dylan Cease SP - CWS

Jimmy Nelson Note
Jimmy Nelson photo 142. Jimmy Nelson RP - LAD
Nelson was top five in xFIP prior to his injury that has taken much longer to recover from than expected. There is a chance he will return in May, but even if he does, it doesn't necessarily mean he will return to form right away or even ever.

Trevor Richards Note
Trevor Richards photo 154. Trevor Richards SP - TB
Richards carried a 4.42 ERA with 4 wins last year and formerly played independent baseball after going undrafted. It helps, however, that he has the best changeup in baseball. Richards' changeup is Trevor Hoffman-esque. It carried a 41.2% whiff rate with a .214 xWOBA. It certainly helped his performance when he adjusted by throwing it 38% of the time instead of 23% of the time at the start of the season. In those closing months, hitters were so focused on his filthy change-up that his slider suddenly became even more deadly than the changeup. With two of the most useful pitches in baseball, Richards could breakout this year in Miami much like Jake Peavy did in in 2004 after a rough start to his career.

Tanner Roark Note
Tanner Roark photo 155. Tanner Roark SP - TOR
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.

Kelvin Herrera Note
Kelvin Herrera photo 162. Kelvin Herrera RP - CWS
Herrera was presumably signed to close for the White Sox, but they also added Alex Colome who has closing experience. This one is too close to call for now so you may want to add both in a late round just to make sure you get some saves.

Jesus Luzardo Note
Jesus Luzardo photo 169. Jesus Luzardo RP - OAK
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.

Dakota Hudson Note

Zach Davies Note
Zach Davies photo 171. Zach Davies SP - SD
Davies still has an ERA below 3.00, but his WHIP is not all that impressive and he strikes out fewer hitters than just about every pitcher in the league so while he isn't the worst use of a roster spot, his upside is limited.
