Javier Baez went 0-for-4 against the Brewers on Tuesday and is now batting .217 (5-for-23) with just one RBI and one run scored over his last five games.
While we're not dismissing Baez' talent in any way, it's important for fantasy owners to see more than just three quick, adrenaline-driven games at Coors Field. He had an outstanding debut, but the cooling off that we've now witnessed over his last five must be acknowledged, especially at this time of year when trade deadlines are approaching and people are trying to sell high. Be careful giving up proven talent for a hot, young name, especially if you are in contention to win your league. Unless you're talking about a keeper league and you're making arrangements for next year, youth and upside over proven talent is probably not the best course of action. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cameron Maybin went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Mets.
Maybin is seeing plenty of time in center field for the Braves right now, as he is a strong defensive player with exceptional range. At the plate, he has been anything but consistent, going just 4-for-28 over the last eight games. However, Maybin has displayed an unexpected power stroke, as three of those hits have left the yard. With enough at-bats, the fleet-footed 28 year old could have a shot at 15/15 production with regards to homers and steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
