Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Justin Verlander photo 2. Justin Verlander SP
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Whitley was the top pitching prospect going into the season but has been terrible thus far in the minors. If that turns around, he may end up useful in MLB by the end of the season.
