2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: WEDNESDAY

Eduardo Rodriguez:  6 IP 3 H 0 ER 1 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.84.  Typical Rodriguez who either dominates like this or gets shelled terribly.  Tough to own someone like this.

Jose Urena:  5 IP 3 H 0 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 4.18.  Decent SP 5 season so far for Urena but his profile suggests he is not capable of anything more than this.

Johan Camargo:  1/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .260.  Mostly NL-only fodder here but Camargo is developing nicely and could reach mixed-league status by next season at this rate.

Aaron Judge:  1/4 with his 24th HR while hitting .281.  And now we don't have to worry about the damn Home Run Derby screwing Judge up for a month like a year ago.

Giancarlo Stanton:  1/4 with his 21st HR while hitting .267.  Things are about to get real here.

Kyle Higashioka:  1/3 with his third HR while hitting .188.  The kid is doing a great job mimicking Gary Sanchez right on down to the power and under-.200 average.

Julio Teheran:  5 IP 5 H 5 ER 4 BB 10 K with an ERA of 4.47.  Shame on your if you started Teheran in the extreme heat and humidity of Yankee Stadium which makes that park even more of a home run haven that it already is.  In fact shame on you for starting Teheran in general.

C.C. Sabathia:  6 IP 5 H 2 ER 3 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.02.  This guy doesn't get enough credit for the superb and tremendously unexpected second wind of his career.

Nick Castellanos:  1/3 with his 14th HR while hitting .309.  Right at the top of the heap in terms of the next generation of top fantasy baseball third baseman.

Wilson Contreras:  2/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .284.  I did say to stay patient here as Contreras is a classic second-half stud and was not hitting that badly even prior to this very good stretch.

Kyle Seager:  2/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .239.  Banking on Seager's history of strong second halves to save the average and if so, when combined with the power at career-best levels, the guy could be putting forth a quietly terrific season again.

Ryon Healy:  2/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .252.  Been predicting an average uptick for awhile now but still not there.....yet.

Garrett Richards:  5.1 IP 4 H 2 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.42.  Richards has been solid as he continues to pitch with a partially torn UCL.  The latter is likely what is hurting his ability to pitch deep into games for sure.

Aaron Nola:  7 IP 7 H 1 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.41.  Nola is a top ten fantasy baseball ace. The ascension is complete.

Sean Manaea:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 2 BB 1 K with an ERA of 3.33.  Manaea has been so smoke-and-mirrors it is not even funny.

Travis Shaw:  2/3 with his 15th HR while hitting .244.  Much less flash this season.

Brad Miller:  1/3 with 2 home runs (7 for season) while hitting .343.  A change of scenery can kickstart a previously struggling veteran's bat and we all know Miller can hit for power.  It won't cost anything to get what you can out of this hot streak.

Yuli Gurriel:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .296.  The scouting report on Gurriel being a .,300 hitter with mediocre power is spot on.

Josh Reddick:  3/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .271.  I told you yesterday to pick up Reddick so you already lost one home run.

Shin-Soo Choo:  2/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .289.  The power and the insane on-base streak are the most obvious signs that Choois having a fantastic season and has his spot locked up for the midseason All-Value team.

Todd Frazier:  2/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .222.  He sucks.

Marcus Stroman:  6 ER in 4.2 IP with an ERA of 6.50.  This guy's career is now completely off the rails.  What a shame.

Gregory Polanco:  1/4 with his 12th HR while hitting .231.  Not sure anyone cares anymore.

Yoan Moncada:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .229.  Got to admire the determination of the White Sox to force Moncada to become a leadoff hitter.  Or maybe I should be disturbed by it.

Daniel Palka:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .235.  At this point maybe the White Sox should just try this guy in leadoff considering how low the bar has been set.

Tyler Anderson:  8 IP 2 H 0 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.90.  Quality stuff from Anderson but obviously only use out on the road.
