The Astros have two young arms that are strong plays in AL-only leagues, and they might even have some mixed league value. There are two 9th inning arms that are surging after rough starts to the year. The Indians have two outfielders who may be ready to remind folks why they are both solid plays in mixed leagues. The Padres second baseman is struggling (another two). Finally, a power hitter in Anaheim, an all-around force in Tampa, and two veteran arms on the hill – one going up, one certainly on the way down, will be discussed.
Adam Eaton was called up to the bigs, his elbow finally healed, and the stampede to add his services began. Should you be disappointed if you were unable to roster him? The Tigers made an odd choice in spring training with their starting rotation, and despite less than desirable results it appears that they won't be changing their minds anytime soon. The Red Sox top lefty continues to struggle and memories of the dominating arm he used to be are fading fast. The Dodgers brought in a hurler from Miami. Who takes over his open rotation spot? Why do the Yankees keep giving the ball every five days to Phil H? Better question. Why does everyone in the fantasy game care so much? Finally, how in the world has a Mets' outfielder outproduced the likes of Braun, Cespedes, Hamilton and Kemp this season?
