Gallardo has been below average this season, but leave it to the San Diego Padres to make him look like a starting pitcher for the first or maybe second time all season long. Six men reached during his time on the bound and his six strikeouts were his highest single game total all season long. Even in the deepest of AL-only formats, Gallardo isn’t worth rostering at this point of the fantasy baseball season. Just do yourself a favor and leave him off your roster. His next start will come on Monday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
As I wrote in my Category Impact article this week, Schoop is seeing the baseball extremely well. His batting average is up to .301 on the season, thanks to going 11-for-22 over his last four games. He has 13 home runs and 46 RBI on the season and if he continues to get at-bats near the top of the order, his fantasy value will continue to skyrocket. He’s playable in all formats at the moment.
