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.

Add in all leagues

Delmon Young MIN | OF

How is Young still only owned in 60% of leagues? He is a young player with a ton of upside, and he is having a great year. He is batting over .300 and he is on pace to have well over 100 RBI’s. Pick him up now if he is still available. (about 60% owned)


Carlos Quentin CWS | OF

In the last month Quentin has been one of the hottest players in baseball. He has been batting for power and average, and it seems like he has found his power stroke again. It looks like the Quentin from 2008 could be back. (about 75% owned)

Chase Headley SD | 3B/OF

Headley started out the season on fire, but quickly came crashing back down to earth. Recently however, he has started to hit the ball a lot better and it seems like he is breaking out of his slump. His position eligibility is a nice plus and we think he could have value for the rest of the season. (about 50% owned)

Matt LaPorta CLE | 1B/OF

We talked about LaPorta before the all-star break, and he is still putting up solid numbers. This youngster has a big upside and we think he is worth a roster spot in most leagues. (about 20% owned)

Gordon Beckham CWS | 2B/3B

Beckham was one of our favorite sleepers coming into the season, but he has really struggled to get his bat going. However, he is starting to show some signs of breaking out of this slump, and we think it’s time to pick him up before someone else does. (about 50% owned)

Brian Roberts BAL | 2B

When healthy, Roberts is a top 5 second basemen, and he should be back in the Orioles lineup within the next week. We aren’t sure if he will be able to make an instant impact, but if he is truly healthy he will help your team when it counts the most. (about 70% owned)

Max Scherzer DET | SP

The main thing that sticks out about Scherzer is his strikeout totals. He has 7+ strikeouts in 7 of his last 9 games. He is going to be inconsistent, but we expect him to pitch many gems in the second half of the season. (about 60% owned)

Wandy Rodriguez HOU | SP

Wandy has been a big disappointment this year and he has not made his owners very happy. He has started to show some signs of figuring it out, and he is worth picking up if you need a SP. He showed us last year what he is capable of, and we think he will have a lot of good starts in the second half of the 2010 season. (about 70% owned)

John Axford MIL | RP

Axford has been amazing so far this year, but he is still available in a lot of leagues. He has a sub 3 ERA, a 5-1 record, and he is perfect on all 12 of his save opportunities. What does he have to do to get picked up? We think he should have value for the rest of the season, and he should be owned in almost all leagues at this point. (about 55% owned)
