2019 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: THURSDAY

Michael Conforto:  1/2 with his 9th HR while hitting .271.  Conforto smashed into Robinson Cano chasing a pop fly and ended up with a concussion that will likely land him on the IL Friday.  Concussions are always tricky so Conforto's return date could be murky.

Zack Wheeler:  6 ER in 6 IP with an ERA of 4.85.  Overall is has been a miserable season for Wheeler with some small doses of top-notch pitching that brought forth memories of his second half of 2018.  Always struggling to place pitches, Wheeler is getting destroyed when he misses and for now last season's second half run is looking like an outlier. 

Christian Yelich:  3/5 with 2 home runs (18 for season) and 9th SB while hitting .342.  Yelich already has enough home runs where if the season ended today it would be a very respectable total for 90 percent of the players.  And if the season ended today he would be in play to win the batting title.  Incredible stuff.

Mike Moustakas:  3/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .259.  We could see a nice boost from Moustakas now that he is back at his natural third base position with Travis Shaw wiping out.

Yasmani Grandal:  1/3 with his 8th HR while hitting .263.  Grandal is back to his standard batting average territory so solid stuff from here on out which counts for extra at catcher. 

Jean Segura:  1/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .312.  Only two steals from Segura so maybe he is losing steam there as he ages a bit.  Everything else has been right on par though so just a minor quibble here. 

Zach Davies:  1 ER in 6 IP with an ERA of 1.54.  Crazy stuff here as Davies is doing with with way below average K rates but is inducing very weak contact and avoiding the long ball.  Obviously Davies is not a 1.54 ERA guy but the fantasy baseball community knows this which means you are not going to get fair market value here.  That means the best course of action is to hold and enjoy the fun while it lasts. 

Jurickson Profar:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .185.  Man Profar has been terrible and it is not enough that he qualifies everywhere for you to keep holding through all of this.

Matt Olson:  2/6 with his third HR while hitting .214.  I said to add Olson when he returned given his 30 homer power but this works only as a UTIL or CI option in deeper leagues. 

Chris Bassitt:  8 IP 4 H 0 ER 2 BB 7 K with an ERA of 1.93.  Who knew all we had to do to destroy our leagues in pitching was to pick Bassitt and Davies with their last two selections in the draft. 

Rougned Odor:  3/5 with 2 home runs (5 for season) while hitting .167.  I have made endless excuses for Odor so I lost credibility here a long time ago.  The crazy thing is that Odor is supremely talented with terrific power and underrated speed.  If only he can get his shizz together once and for all.

Willie Calhoun:  4/7 with his second HR while hitting .500.  Remember we all climbed over one another to get a share of Calhoun last spring so nothing should change now in terms of quickly grabbing this potent bat off waivers.   Classic post-hype sleeper in play.

Joey Gallo:  4/5 with his 13th HR while hitting .269.  4 for 5 for a Joey Gallo game?!!!!  The end of times are here.

Hunter Pence:  1/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .292  Got to get the number for the hypnotist who successfully convinced Pence it is 2012 again. 

Jason Kipnis:  2/6 with 2 home runs (2 for season) while hitting .216.  Up until now the best swing Kipnis put forth this season was the viral gender reveal he took part in last week. 

Trevor Bauer:  7 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 3.76.  Letdown city here of late as Bauer has gotten his head beaten in twice in his last three starts.  With 4 walks in this one, Bauer is fighting his stuff a bit which is a theme for his entire career to this point. 

Marcell Ozuna:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .231.  Think about how exciting it was to own Ozuna last month.  Wow have things changed. 

Matt Carpenter:  1/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .200.  Think about how exciting it was to own Carpenter last season.  Wow have things changed. 

Adam Wainwright:  5 ER in 4 IP with an ERA of 4.75.  Well that short burst of turning-back-the-clock numbers was fun while it lasted.
