Off the List: David Peralta (injury), Jean Segura

Ketel Marte is in the midst of an exceptional breakout season. He has shown a great knack for making contact and appears to be a legit asset in the batting average department based on his .295 xBA. It’s the power that I don’t think anyone saw coming.

Off the List: Miguel Rojas

Alex Verdugo is currently in the top 3% of the league in strikeout rate. He is enjoying a nice season and is getting a lot of run atop the Dodgers lineup, even against lefties. He is looking like a future multi-category fantasy star in the making.

25 Edwin Encarnacion NY 1B

Off the List: Jean Segura

Ronald Acuna Jr. has avoided the dreaded sophomore slump thus far. He is on a 30-30 pace and 124 runs. It goes without saying, the kid is stud and hitting atop the Braves lineup has worked wonders for his fantasy value.

Off the List: Jay Bruce (injury)

C.J. Cron is on a 36 HR and 109 RBI pace. He is a guy who dropped 30 bombs a year ago, so if you are in need of power and he was dropped in your league, he is most certainly worth a look.

25 Juan Soto WSH OF

Off the List: None

Pete Alonso has a legitimate shot at breaking Aaron Judge‘s rookie record for home runs in a single season. He is on pace for 54 HRs and 122 RBI and has not slowed down yet. He won’t help in AVG and strikes out a ton, but the power and run production is beyond legit.

10 Nick Markakis ATL OF

Off the List: Asdrubal Cabrera

As steady as they come, Nick Markakis continues to produce. Atlanta has been the fountain of youth for veterans such as Markakis and Josh Donaldson. Markakis has driven in 53 runs which is good for a pace of 87 RBI and should, at the very least, be owned in five-outfielder leagues.

Off the List: Andrew Benintendi

Over his last nine games, Victor Robles has slashed .361/.378/.669 with a pair of HRs and three swipes. While he has taken his lumps this year and his plate discipline needs much improvement, Robles is shaping up to be an elite power/speed combo that will be a fantasy star for years to come.

Oscar Mercado‘s bat has come alive in recent weeks and he is up to nine steals on the year as well. His speed is his calling card and is currently swiping bags at a 30 SB pace.

Off the List: Michael Conforto, Charlie Blackmon

Josh Donaldson has earned every bit of that “prove it” 1-year/$23 million contract he signed with the Braves this past offseason. He clearly still has plenty of game left and has been a force at the dish. Donaldson is walking at a near 25% clip.

Daniel Vogelbach is looking like an offensive centerpiece for the Mariners for years to come. His on-base abilities continue to impress with an OBP of .372, especially considering he is batting under .240.

25 Masahiro Tanaka NYY SP -2

Off the List: James Paxton

Now healthy, Domingo German continues to rack up victories. He certainly benefits having the stout Yankees offense putting runs on the board for him, but he has been nails. His recent IL stint may actually work in his fantasy owners favor by prolonging his season and limiting his innings.

9 Ryan Yarbrough TB SP/RP Unranked
10 Andrew Cashner BOS SP -1

Off the List: Merrill Kelly, Mike Leake

Ryan Yarbrough has gotten right back on track. He was demoted for about a month at the end of April and since returning he has pitched to a 2.75 ERA and a 6-2 record. He is easily one of the most valuable SP/RP eligible pitchers in fantasy.

Kyle Hendricks owns a career 3.11 ERA. He goes unnoticed pretty often due to his unspectacular strikeout numbers, but the guy is as steady as can be.

10 Zach Plesac CLE SP Unranked

Off the List: Andrew Cashner, Sandy Alcantara, Trevor Richards

After a brief stint in AAA, Zach Plesac was brought back up to the big club and looked sharp in a rain shortened start against the Tigers. Plesac has pretty good stuff, and while it has not translated in big strikeout numbers at the major league level yet, he should remain a viable fantasy arm.

Yu Darvish is finally turning things around. He has 45 Ks across his last 36.2 IP to go with a 3.44 ERA. Here’s to hoping he is figuring things out.

Jeff Samardzija is on a nice run over his last four. He has gone 3-1 with a sub-1.00 WHIP and a 2.70 ERA. We’ve seen “Shark” limit baserunners at an elite level before so it is no surprise that he is helping fantasy owners in this category again this year.
