Plenty of movement on here this week due to injury. With Carlos Correa unfortunately facing at least a month of inactivity, and the questions surrounding Jose Altuve‘s lower body health, they drop off this list for now. Jeff McNeil stays in the top 25 as it sounds like he could be returning to the ailing Mets within the next week or so.

David Fletcher is currently top 10 in the majors in AVG and is doing a great job making contact this year. He may have even been a little unlucky thus far judging by his .336 xBA.

25 Josh Bell PIT 1B Unranked

Off the List: Matt Carpenter, Ozzie Albies

Mitch Haniger has not provided much in the AVG department, although his incredibly low BABIP suggests he could be due for some positive regression, but he has delivered everywhere else. Haniger has found himself in the top 10 in runs scored for the majority of the year and has not really budged. He is firmly entrenched at the top of the M’s lineup and should continue to provide great R+RBI figures, and expect a better AVG to come as well.

You may be able to find Adam Eaton on the wire in a number of leagues by now. While he hasn’t set the world on fire thus far, he is getting everyday run as the Nationals’ No. 2 hitter and is on pace for nearly 100 runs. He will steal you a handful of bags too.

Gary Sanchez had 18 HRs in 374 plate appearances last year. He has 17 in 155 PAs this season already. It is becoming abundantly clear that last year was the outlier for Sanchez and not his 33-dinger campaign in 2017.

After a slow start to the year, Nolan Arenado is right back to his usual elite self. Over his last 30 ballgames, Arenado has 4o RBI and is currently on a 140-RBI pace.

Miguel Sano is off and running since his return from the IL. The Twins’ slugger has nine RBI in his first ten games and as long as he is healthy, should be a good source of run production.

I just could not do it. I could not take Joey Votto off the list yet. He has been swinging it a little better recently and has a .371 OBP over his last 15 games. Here’s to hoping this is the turnaround.

Bryan Reynolds has made the most of his playing time and is starting to earn even more while forcing Melky Cabrera out of the Pirates lineup. He has shown decent plate discipline thus far in the bigs and had great OBP numbers in the minors.

Jake Odorizzi has given up zero earned runs in five of his last six starts and has won seven of his last eight. Like … what? His fastball velocity is up and it has been a super effective pitch for him.

Lance Lynn has done a nice job with his fastball/slider combo, resulting in a decent start to the year. He sits at about a strikeout per inning and his walk rate is down. Not to mention his FIP and xFIP suggest he has pitched better than his 4.66 ERA.

Off the List: Cole Hamels

After spending about a month on the IL with knee inflammation, James Paxton looked as good as ever in his first start back. His velocity was solid and he had his curveball working. Expect him to be an elite fantasy SP moving forward after this very encouraging return.

Wade Miley has a career-high swinging strike rate this year primarily because of the success of his cutter, which he perfected last year. His ERA has not been above 4.00 since his six-inning, three-run quality start in his first turn of the season.

Take away two pretty awful starts against the Nationals and Zack Wheeler has been pretty great this year. Strikeouts are up for Wheeler as well as his velocity so as long as his health can hold up throughout the summer months, he should be a solid source of Ks as the season rolls on.

Off the List: Matt Barnes

Not a ton of change here. Sergio Romo has tallied four saves over the past week or so, and sees his total up to 11. He won’t get a ton of chances, nor be the most effective, but he’s a clear closer for a major league team, and that is usually worth owning.

The Boston bullpen continues to be a headache for fantasy owners. Both Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes are worth owning, but don’t expect usage clarity anytime soon.

Off the List: None

Aaron Nola has had an issue with baserunners so far this season. The Phillies’ right-hander has looked a lot better recently and he’ll likely heat up with the weather. He may never reach the heights of his 2018 campaign, but he has all the tools to be a top-tier arm.

Mike Fiers is certainly not a desirable pitcher for fantasy purposes, but he has done a nice job of limiting baserunners. He is in the matchup-dependent streaming category.

Not entirely sure what is going on with Carlos Carrasco. While he has been giving up home runs at a sky high rate, everything else appears to be in line with his career numbers. His 3.33 xFIP suggests there should be some positive regression around the corner.

Dakota Hudson has thrown four consecutive quality starts and five over his past six turns through the Cards’ rotation. The 24-year-old has enough of a prospect pedigree to keep tabs on and is definitely worth a look in strong matchups.
