12 Team Pickups:
Victor Robles, WAS OF, 9% Yahoo:
The former uber prospect is finally up in the big leagues and could make a massive impact, even in shallow mixers. A speculative add makes sense, as his upside is immense. He stole a good amount of bases at Triple A Syracuse (14-20), and had a nice OBP (.356) in the minors.
Ryan O’Hearn, KC 1b, 7% Yahoo:
This pop-up prospect for KC is a solid walker, has a good power potential, and should receive regular PT ROS. I’d snag him if I needed power.
15 Team Pickups:
Hunter Dozier, KC 1b, 4% Yahoo:
Imagine O’Hearn, but a little worse, then you have Dozier. Warning: these two are batting average risks.
Reynaldo Lopez, CHW SP, 19% Yahoo:
ReyLo has been hot of late (14 IP, 12 K’s and a 1.29 ERA to pair with a .79 WHIP) and he gets a good matchup this week: Balty. Use him with some caution, as he has ratio risk.
Sandy Alcantara, MIA SP, 3% Yahoo:
The prized piece from the Ozuna deal, Alcantara has been nails in 2018: 12 IP, 2 Wins, 8K’s and a .75 ERA to pair witha a 1.08 WHIP. Utilize him next week vs The Mets.
20+ Team (& Only Leagues) Pickups:
Adam Wainwright, STL SP, 5% Yahoo:
Wainwright comes off the DL this week, and should only be used in the deepest of leagues. That said, there are some NL Only owners who may want to spec on the Cardinal Great.
Patrick Wisdom, STL IF, 0% Yahoo:
Wisdom seems to be strictly a bench stash in NL Only, a very specific format for him to have any value, but he could be the next example of #CardinalsDevilMagic
