Helping your MLB Fantasy Lineup

The All-Star break is approaching and many fantasy owners are frustrated with their mlb lineup.  While it may be hard to believe all is not lost yet for baseball fantasy owners.  There are still some players available in most leagues that can improve your team.  Here are a few of the best options that are still out there.

 

 

Ryan Schimpf

 

Ryan Schimpf comes with a bit of a risk and reward.  His batting average is not the best, but many of hits so far have been for home runs.  His strikeout percentage is probably higher than desired, but he his ability to have extra bases hits makes him attractive.  Owned in about 23 percent of current CBS leagues Schimpf may be worth taking a risk on.

 

 

Eddie Butler

No longer with the Rockies, Butler has excelled in Triple A and made his way back up to the majors with the Cubs.  Clearly talented, it is possible that the 15th overall pick from 2012 could be aided by a fresh start in Chicago.  Buttler is currently owned in only about six percent of CBS leagues.  Simply pitching for the cubs should give Butler some wins making him worth taking a look at in your league.

 

 

Jed Lowrie

 

Jed Lowrie is off to his best start in years already passing last years homerun totals in just over one hundred at bats.  If Lowrie can stay healthy he has the ability to hit a decent amount of homeruns.  He also is walking much more than in previous years.  Keep an eye on him in your league.

 

Hansel Robles

 

Robles should benefit from Jeurys Familia’s injury.  Robles should become the full-time setup man as Addison Reed moves back into the closer’s role.  Only owned in about ten percent of leagues, Robles has lots of value.  He could potentially see time as a closer also.
