Add in all leagues
Floyd has been one of the hottest pitchers in baseball over the last month. His last 6 outings have all been quality starts, and he has only given up 6 ER’s over that span. He is still a young pitcher and could have a great second half this year. (about 65% owned)
We think Franklin is still comfortably in control of the closer role, but after a shaky outing the other day this is a situation we should all keep a close eye on. Motte has been pitching really well lately, and he could take over the job if Franklin has a few more shaky outings. (about 5% owned)
Richard is coming off of his worst start of the season, but prior to that outing he had quality starts in 8 of his previous 10. He is a young pitcher with decent K counts and he is someone to pay close attention to. He has a problem with walks, but if he can get that under control he could be a great fantasy pitcher. (about 60% owned)
Since coming back from an injury two weeks ago, Aybar has been on fire. He is on a 10 game hit streak and we think he could be worth adding in almost all leagues. He doesn’t have much power, but he could bat for average and give your team a boost in speed. (about 55% owned)
It looks like Crisp is going to be the everyday center fielder for the A’s, and he could be worth an add if you are looking for speed. He isn’t going to give you much power or the best batting average, but he has always been a good source of steals. (about 10% owned)
Everyone has probably heard of this young prospect and how much potential he has, but until recently LaPorta was having a terrible year. He has been batting around .200 for the whole season, but he is starting to find his stroke at the plate. He has hit 4 HR’s in the last week, and he is a young player with a huge upside that might be worth taking a gamble on. (about 20% owned)
If you were of the unlucky Pedroia owners out there Barmes could be a good temporary replacement. He has dual position eligibility which is always a plus, and he has the potential to bat for average. He is currently on a 14 game hit streak and we think he could have a decent second half of the season. He doesn’t have a huge upside, but he could be worth picking up and riding out this hot streak.
