As fantasy owners, are you still questioning whether you should pick up certain players or whether you should drop certain players?
Well, these are the top five hot pickups as of the All-
Star break. Hopefully, these players listed are available for trade or through free agency in your perspective leagues but nothing is guaranteed.
Andrew is definitely worthy of being picked up as of now. He consistently has multi-hit games and is a speedy young center fielder. As the season progresses, fantasy owners should start to notice that he will almost always put up solid numbers.
Clayton is probably not available in most fantasy baseball leagues due to his already growing popularity.
He is currently 7-5 with an ERA at about 3.16. He struggled a little bit in the beginning of the season and as the season has gone on, he and baseball fans in general have started to see who he really is.
He has probably the most deadly curveball in the game currently and he counters that pitch with a nice fast ball that has lately been finding it's way right down the middle of the strike zone and into the catcher's mitt.
I understand that I am taking a huge risk on this one but Howie has all of the tools to succeed in the near future. As of now, he is hitting over .232, but to me, that means absolutely nothing. People, we are talking about a guy who has already proven to everyone that when healthy mentally and physically, he can be one of the most dangerous and powerful all-around players in the game. Don't give up on him and give him a second chance.
YES, the same guy that was traded with Dan Haren for Mark Mulder several years ago. He is currently on fire. His out pitch has been adding up strikeouts to his resume and his ERA is at about 1.89. He should be available in most leagues so grab him while you can.
Either player will give you a boost in the standings unquestionably. Both have had a power surge over the past few weeks or so and it doesn't look like they are stopping any time soon.
They might be available to you if you are playing in a more in depth league but still check to see if they are there.
