Lorenzo Cain:  5/6 with his 4th SB while hitting .266.  Basically Cain is an older version of Andrew Benintendi.  But also cheaper and the better value. 

Mike Moustakas:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .250.  Same old, same old here.  The power went up per game given the new ballpark but that is about the only change from this stable but flawed commodity. 

Cesar Hernandez:  2/3 with his 4th HR while hitting .306.  You never take a loss on this guy when you invest here. 

Aaron Nola:  3 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 4.86.  Nola's control has been putrid by his very good previous standards there but the 9.32 K/9 and 93.2 fastball average velocity are both right in line so again I would still try and buy low.  Once the walks starts to decrease as they should, Nola will be right back to being the ace he generally has been the last few seasons. 

Alex Bregman:  1/5 with his 13th HR while hitting .275.  Just when you thought Bregman couldn't get any better, 2019 gets underway.

Robinson Chirinos:  1/2 with his sixth HR while hitting .278.  Good old Robinson is always there when you need him after 99.9 percent of the catchers out there suck a lemon.

Aledmys Diaz:  2/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .247.  Since everyone in the Houston lineup is going nuts with the bat, feel free to add Diaz in AL-only leagues. 

Tommy LaStella:  3/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .272.  Tommy LaStella is outproducing Bryce Harper.  This is fantasy baseball. 

Shohei Ohtani:  2/3 with his first HR while hitting .250.  For all the acclaim Ohtani gets for his pitching ability, don't think for a second he can't be a damn good UTIL bat for you the remainder of 2019. 

Jorge Polanco:  2/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .327.  Maybe Polanco found some new juice that has not been detected yet because he is absolutely tearing the cover off the baseball. 

Jose Berrios:  5 ER in 5.2 IP with an ERA of 3.05.  Just a bad day at the office and a rare one indeed for this guy this season. 

Francisco Lindor:  2/2 with his 5th HR and 4th SB while hitting .296.  Its like he never left and the big thing here are the steals as Lindor has shown no hesitancy there off the leg injuries. 

Yoan Moncada:  3/4 with 2 home runs (9 for season) while hitting .289.  The K/9 is beginning to climb again as it is now up to 26.9 but everything else has been swell here for this incredibly talented hitter who is working out the kinks overall.

Jose Abreu:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .269.  Abreu is what Adrian Gonzalez was for all those years before his shoulder went bad.  A very consistent but somewhat affordable first base slugger. 

Shane Bieber:  5 ER in 6.1 IP with an ERA of 3.81.  Bieber has shown flashes of ace potential but he is also still raw and needs to work on getting the ball down since he gave up four home runs in this one. 

Christian Walker:  2/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .292.  Walker has outplayed Paul Goldschmidt in Arizona.  Just saying. 

Robbie Ray:  5 IP 6 H 1 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.14.  Ray is his own worst enemy in terms of the insane amount of walks but the arm is as electric as it gets. 

Mitch Haniger:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .229.  The Mariners seems intent on keeping Haniger in the leadoff spot for better or worse but maybe this gets him jump started again. 

Daniel Vogelbach:  1/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .248.  Vogelbach has looked more like the Quad-A guy he has been previously over the last month but the power is still playing. 

Khris Davis:  2/4 with 2 home runs (12 for season) while hitting .243.  The average is almost at .247.  Amazing.

    Jesse Winker $1
    Chishek $1
    Olsen $13

    wait until a player gets injured and stash on DL

    1. Chisek. will have zero value when Strop gets back.
