Each week our Fantasy Baseball experts will give fantasy owners their top choices for players to pick up for all leagues, as well as some players to consider in deeper leagues. If you have any Fantasy Baseball questions for our experts feel free to post them in post them in our Fantasy Sports Forum.
This youngster has really found his power stroke lately. He has 8 HR’s in the last month, and he is batting over .300. Stanton has a huge upside and could be worth taking a gamble on. (about 50% owned)
Ludwick’s numbers aren’t going to blow you away, but he will give you decent power with a good batting average. He has lost the privilege of batting in the same lineup as Pujols and Holliday, but San Diego is still a great team. He should still have plenty of RBI opportunities and we think he could have good value down the stretch. (about 70% owned)
We are going to keep putting him on this list until he is owned in more then 75% of leagues. This guy has been playing great in the last 2 months and his position eligibility makes him almost a must add. If you need any help at 2B or 3B then please pick up Beckham. (about 65% owned)
In our opinion Montero is a top 5 catcher and we can’t believe how many leagues he is still available in. He was one of our favorite catchers coming into the season, and he should finish the season strong. (about 70% owned)
With K-Rod out fighting his father law, Takahashi is going to get a chance to pitch in the 9th for the Mets. We doubt he will have a great ERA but he could be a decent source of saves. (about 15% owned)
Perez is another guy that we don’t understand why he isn’t owned in more leagues. He has a great ERA, he averages about a strikeout per inning, and he should be a decent source of saves for the rest of the season. If you are looking for help with saves then grab Perez if you can. (about 60% owned)
Hellickson had another great start last week and it looks like this guy is the real deal. With 3 starts in the books he is averaging about a K per inning, and he has only given up 3 earned runs. These numbers are hard to ignore and we think there is a decent chance he will continue to put up solid numbers. (about 45% owned)
Everyone heard about Slowey and his bid for a no hitter a few days ago, but he was making noise even before that great start. In his last five starts he is 3-0 with good K counts and a great ERA. The stat that sticks out the most with Slowey is his lack of walks, he only averages about 1 walk per game. Slowey could be a sneaky pickup down the stretch this year. (about 65% owned)
