2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: WEDNESDAY

Kevin Kiermaier:  3/5 with his second HR while hitting .175.  Very tough sledding here so far but try and hold out a bit longer here as Kiermaier can supply contributions everywhere.

C.J.Cron:  3/4 with his 18th HR while hitting .253.  Yeah, Cron has kind of exposed himself over the long haul of the season with regards to some overall hitting limitations but no questioning the power.

Mike Moustakas:  3/5 with 2 home runs (19 for season) while hitting .256.  Another quality season for Moustakas but he may still not get paid given the low average/high power approach is not exactly rare today.

Salvador Perez:  2/5 with his 12th HR while hitting .217. I mean you could have had Wilson Ramos so much cheaper.

Brian Dozier:  3/5 with his 15th HR while hitting .229.  I said yesterday that Dozier does second half tears better than most and so here we go.

Starling Marte:  1/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .282.  Nobody does category juice without the hype better than this guy.

Trevor Williams:  5 IP 4 H 0 ER 3 BB 3 K with an ERA of 4.36.  Williams is pretty much where he should be now with regards to his ratios.

Javier Baez:  1/6 with 18th HR while hitting .289.  Look at that average!

Kris Bryant:  1/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .279.  Bryant needs to get on his statistical horse.

Greg Bird:  1/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .208.  Maybe Bird has another big second half in him.  Or another day-to-day injury that turns into two months out.

Sonny Gray:  6 IP 3 H 0 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 5.46.  It came on the road which is about the only scenario you would ever consider using Gray in this truly pathetic season of his.

Dylan Bundy:  5 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 4.35.  Along with a 1.31 WHIP, these are the ratios Bundy should have had a year ago and throughout the first two month of the season when he had some crazy strand rate and BABIP luck.

Chris Sale:  7 IP 6 H 0 ER 1 BB 12 K with an ERA of 2.23.  The numbers are becoming just stupid now with this guy and his incredible career to this point. 

Scooter Gennett:  3/5 with his 15th HR while hitting .326.  Either they are using the same juiced balls from a year ago or Gennett made that crucial jump from very good hitter to a star in 2017. 

Jesse Winker:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .286.  Your typical OF 4 or 5 in leagues that player that many at the position.

Jose Ramirez:  2/4 with 2 home runs (27 for season) while hitting .293.  I thought a fantastic season for Ramirez in 2018 would center on AROUND 27 homers.  Not for the first half.  Holy crap.

Carlos Carrasco:  5 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.16.  Always an up and down scenario when owning Carrasco but more of it goes upwards. 

Jacob DeGrom:  8 IP 5 H 0 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 1.68.  And he STILL didn't win.  This might be the best pitching season I have ever seen in terms of not getting wins. 

Freddy Peralta:  3.2 IP 3 H 3 ER 3 BB 4 K with an ERA of 2.65.  There is going to be some of this with Peralta given his lack of control and age so don't rely on him as anything more than an SP 4.

Justin Smoak:  1/3 with his 14th HR while hitting .242.  Really tired of seeing Smoak hit .240.

Devon Travis:  1/3 with his sixth HR while hitting .230.  I can't believe we all ever went ga ga over this waste. 

Ozzie Albies:  2/4 with 2 home runs (20 for season) while hitting .288.  Still hitting for massive power and brought the average back up from .255 weeks ago.  My goodness what an incredible season from the kid. 

Luke Weaver:  6 IP 3 H 1 ER 2 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.72.  Good signs here.  Check him out again if someone made the drop.

Carlos Rodon:  7.1 IP 3 H 0 ER 2 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.56.  Hey the WHIP is 1.19 right now which is nice.  Rodon can easily do a Blake Snell 2018 if he can just get the damn walks under control.  Proceed cautiously but still proceed. 

Kenta Maeda:  5.2 IP 4 H 1 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.13.  Short outing but Maeda made the most of it with another boatload of K's. 

Paul Goldschmidt:  1/2 with his 21st HR while hitting .282. I swear it is like April and May never happened. 

Charlie Blackmon:  3/3 with his 18th HR while hitting .284.  Another justified first-round pick so far.

Carlos Gonzalez:  2/5 with 2 home runs (10 for season) while hitting .275.  CarGo is doing just enough to stay relevant as a bench outfielder in fantasy baseball. 

Ian Desmond:  3/5 with his 18th HR while hitting .223.  I mean Dedmond IS running and hitting home runs despite the ghastly average.
