12 Team Pickups:
Danny Jansen, TOR C, 22% Yahoo:
An OBP Maven, Jansen appears to be getting regular starts for the Jays down the stretch. Buy him in 12ers, as he has upside and catcher is a wasteland.
Koda Glover, WAS RP, 24% Yahoo:
Glover has the job at least for now in Washington. That should be enough to be interested in him for now. Buy where you need saves.
15 Team Pickups:
Taylor Ward, LAA C/3b, 28% Yahoo:
Ward has prospect pedigree, as he was just outside the 100 mark on Rotowire’s Top 400 Prospects, has catcher eligibility, and a path to lots of PT. Pick him up!
Logan Forsythe, MIN IF, 4% Yahoo:
A guy who popped 20 bombs from the middle infield just 2 years ago, Forsythe has been on one of late: posting an .863 OPS over 59 AB’s since arriving in Minny.
John Gant, STL SP, 21% Yahoo:
A guy who’s name makes him seem more apt to endorse the Declaration of Independence rather than throw gas in The Bigs, Gant has been electric over his past 2 starts: 11.1 IP, 1.59 ERA, a puny .62 WHIP with 10 K’s. Buy him now, he maybe breaking out.
David Bote, CHC INF, 2% Yahoo:
Bote has been getting regular enough run to deserve a look in deep leagues, as long as Bryant remains shelved. He adds a power-speed-batting average dimension to a potent Cubs lineup.
20+ Team (& Only Leagues) Pickups:
Rafael Ortega, MIA OF, 1% Yahoo:
Ortega has been been a stolen base maven lately, hitting out of the lead off spot. Go grab him in deep leagues where you have the need for speed.
Alex Cobb, BAL SP, 19% Yahoo:
This Balty SP is nothing special but he has been spinning lately, posting a 3.52 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP since July 12th with lowly K’s, but in AL Only that is worth something.
