2019 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: SUNDAY

Xander Bogaerts:  2/3 with his second HR while hitting .308.  What's funny about Bogaerts is that many of his fantasy baseball owners thought the sky was falling in terms of his start to the season but yet he is hitting .308.

David Price:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 0 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.79.  Don't think for a second that Price's big postseason performance last fall didn't unleash a new level of comfort now in Boston.  

J.D. Davis:  1/2 with his third HR while hitting .257.  The return of Todd Frazier will make Davis a non-story real soon.

Josh Donaldson:  2/3 with his second HR while hitting .264.  Donaldson's seems to have found his sea legs now in Atlanta.  The push for another contract next winter could lead to a mini bounce back.

Nick Markakis:  1/4 with his second HR while hitting .327.  Markakis might be one of the most underrated hitters of his generation.  

Jacob DeGrom:  5 IP 5 H 3 ER 4 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.68.  Don't panic here DeGrom owners as he is still missing a ton of bats which shows the stuff is as great as ever.  Instead, DeGrom could be tipping his pitches a bit given the 5 home runs allowed in his last two.  

Tim Anderson:  1/4 with his third HR while hitting .429.  I think more MLB hitters are going to try and knock up their significant others given how insane Anderson has performed with the stick since the birth of his child.  

Carlos Rodon:  6 IP 3 H 2 ER 2 BB 5 K with an ERA of 3.27.  Rodon's control remains as bad as ever but the allure of his K's also is still present.  The AL version of Jon Gray.  

Masahiro Tanaka:  5 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 3.22.  Tanaka was dominant coming in so just a bad outing.  

Freddy Galvis:  2/5 with his sixth HR while hitting .351.  Starting to think Galvis worked out with Jose Altuve this past winter in figuring out ways to hit more long balls.  

Jean Segura:  2/5 with his first HR while hitting .317.  Segura is dropping into boring veteran territory.

Cesar Hernandez:  2/5 with his first HR and second SB while hitting .200.  Hernandez is a guy who always yields a profit and if someone dropped him off the bit of a slow start, grab him.  

Brian Anderson:  1/5 with his second HR and second SB while hitting .228.  Anderson will need to do a whole bunch more of this to be anything but NL-only fodder.  

Max Scherzer:  8 IP 7 H 3 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.43.  Scherzer has been a bit more hittable than ever so far this season but small sample size abounds.  

Leonys Martin:  3/5 with his third HR while hitting .271.  What's funny about Martin is that no matter how many home runs he hits, no on will still want to pick him up.

Whit Merrifield:  1/5 with his second HR while hitting .328.  Any power from Merrifield serve as icing on the top of his blockbuster fantasy baseball game.

Jorge Soler:  1/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .217.  I still think there is a very useful player here.  

Corey Kluber:  2.2 IP 6 H 6 ER 5 BB 4 K with an ERA of 6.16.  Yup I told you all to avoid this potential land mine and the 6 walks likely indicate a guy who is losing velocity and trying to unsuccessfully alter his approach to overcome it.  

Matt Chapman:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .294.  Beginning to think of Chapman as the AL version of Anthony Rendon.  

Elvis Andrus:  3/4 with his third HR and fourth SB while hitting .414.  Andrus fell hard in drafts this season but boy he and Tim Anderson look like they are trying to one-up each other.  

Nolan Arenado:  1/2 with his first HR while hitting .254.  The fact it took Arenado this long to hit his first home run means he will hit 8 in the next 6 games.  

German Marque:  9 IP 1 H 0 ER 0 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.00.  This game was tailor-made for dominance since Marquez got the woeful Giants lineup away from Coors Field.  Marquez clearly has the ace-level stuff but still has to show he can do this consistently at home.  

Mitch Haniger:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .289.  Haniger is a pronounced first-half guy as he is showing once again but that blockbuster season he has always hinted at could be attainable if the health cooperates.  

Gerrit Cole:  6 IP 4 H 2 ER 0 BB 11 K with an ERA of 3.24.  Finally a win for Cole which was way overdue.  

Joc Pederson:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .235.  Still not seeing average gains despite a better approach at the dish.

Alex Verdugo:  2/4 with his third HR while hitting .343.  Verdugo should have already been picked up in your league but he is still worth checking to see if you league fell asleep.
