2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: JETT BANDY C MILWAUKEE BREWERS

Basically if you play for the Milwaukee Brewers this season and you are a hitter, you are a fantasy baseball stud or a very useful asset.  Whether it is Eric Thames, Ryan Braun, Hernan Perez, or Jett Bandy, the Brewers have had some major offensive production with their bats this season to say the least.  As tremendous an out-of-the-blue story as Thames has been, catcher Jett Bandy and his offensive production has to be considered a major surprise as well.  Coming into the year Bandy was not touted to be much of anything as he was expected to split time with Manny Pina and his fantasy baseball value was considered nil as well even though the position is insanely shallow.  Fast forward to present day and Bandy just finished a 3-for-4 outing in the Brewers' Wednesday matinee versus the Cincinnati Reds which raised his average to .349.  Bandy has also shocked with the power as he has 4 home runs and 13 RBI in limited playing time.  With Pina also hitting very well (.419 with 1 home run) which means it is not the worst idea to own both guys in fantasy baseball and keep rotating them in-and-out.

As far as Bandy is concerned, he hinted at this before when he hit 8 home runs in just 231 at-bats in 2016 with the Los Angeles Angels.  Bandy clearly has the power to clear fences and sometimes that is all it takes to gain fantasy baseball relevancy at catcher.  With a .308 BABIP that is pretty close to neutral, what Bandy is doing is quite realistic and believable.  Those who own Bandy needs to keep trotting him out there and like I said adding Pina is a good idea as well.  Sometimes these things tend to sneak up on us and that looks like it has happened to the whole Brewers lineup.
