Each week, we will take a look at a few players who would make good pickups in your season long fantasy leagues. We will try mix it up to have a good distribution of pitching and hitters to help you dominate your fantasy leagues.
Peter O’Brien – 9% owned – O’Brien made his debut this weekend – one that include a three run home run against Adam Conley. O’Brien has been one of the top prospects in the Diamondbacks system for awhile, and it looks like he will be worth the add while he is up.
Danny Espinosa – 12% owned – Espinosa has been hitting the ball like a monster over the last few weeks. He is perpetually under-owned, as he normally doesn’t have a ton of upside. He’s a guy I don’t mind adding, especially while he is going through his power streak.
Trayce Thompson – 41% owned – Thompson is a little higher owned than I would have imagined, but if he is available he is definitely worth the add. He has been a breathe of fresh air for Dodger fans who have watched Puig struggle mightily to start the season. I would grab him as soon as you can.
Yangervis Solarte – 20% owned – Solarte has dealt with some injuries this season, but when he has played, he has been very, very good. Yes, he plays half of his game in a bad hitting stadium, but that hasn’t stopped the Padres from having some really big games there. He is day to day as of this writing, but his ailments aren’t expected to keep him out long.
Blake Snell – 19% owned – Snell started on major league game against the Yankees, did well, and then was sent down. This week, he will be up to start a game against the Mariners. They are a tough offense, but he is playing at home, so that levels the field at least a bit. He has been one of the best pitchers in the minors, and this could be your last time to grab him with ease.
Tyler Anderson – 2% owned – Anderson is going to have a lot of things going against him. For one, he pitches in the best hitting stadium in all of baseball. That didn’t stop him from having an excellent first start in the majors. Pitchers can have success at Coors, and he could be a nice option to hold on to if you have room, especially for those games outside of Coors.
