Kingery- King Me! w/ Odubel trouble and frankly Franco aint cuttin it...lotta starts, lotta production in the now and later

Nicky Lopez- 2B just popped up! When he starts swipin sandbags he's gonna fly off the wire, trap him now, kid's rakin too

Shaun Anderson- part of my hunch bunch but I think he'll pay off with two starts this week...kid chucks..

Josh Reddick

I think he has only been benched once in the last 10 Astros games and has been starting against lefties and performing well. I cant think of a hotter lineup right now. IT'S REDDICK TIME!

Seconded... he's a great option in formats with deeper OFs. He's red hot right now. 3/6 w/ 2 doubles, 1 home run, 1 stolen base, 2 walks over his last two games.

He's also leading off today.

 

Marwin Gonzalez of the Twins...355/.429/.500 in May.

Kendrys Morales...  Was dreadful for Oakland, but has been solid in his first three games for the Yankees and gets to face BAL and KC this week.  Starting off the week against Cashner, who he is 7-14 against with 3 HRs in his career.

I like Shaun Anderson tomorrow at home vs Atlanta. Vegas likes him as well 👍

I'll continue to bang the Bassitt drum...starts tmrw at CLE and then two steps next week (both home) v LAA and HOU--the latter he's actually fared well against too...even if it is a bit scary looking.

Julio Urias, if fully reinstated and dropped, might be a nice add to your pen...was saving two games a week with some dubs before the drama...

Alex Verdugo has been  playing almost every day as well...I think Roberts is finally unleashing the kid... 

Sean "Duke" Newcomb might be the savior in ATL going forward at the end of games...

Trevor Richards is a decent risk/reward streamer for tomorrow. @DET.

Rowdy Tellez is swinging a hot bat right now. Deeper league appeal.

Jon Duplantier was supposed to start today for the Reno Aces and is no longer listed. This makes me believe he’ll get the call to start Saturday.

Raimel Tapia for the upcoming Rockies homestand - he gets Orioles and Blue Jays pitching for a week.  He also gets Arizona pitching and the only matchup to really fear there should be Greinke.

Not that they were a power house before, but with injuries to Nimmo, Conforto, Cano and more the Mets are approaching Marlins level of bad. A high priority streaming target for right now.

Sano and Cron are probably on a lot of waivers. Get yourself a piece of this Twins offense. They're ranked #1 in runs scored

Lance Lynn is stringing together some solid starts, coming off of 7ip and 11k vs. SEA. Gave up 2 ER, 5 hits, and 1 bb. 

He's 6/10 in QS for the year. He has been roughed up a bit here and there, and it has inflated his numbers. He gets the Angels next time up if he remains on schedule (he threw 120 pitches in his 11so game, so he may not slot exactly where it looks like).

He also has accounted for 6 wins, which means a lot more than I wish it did in most leagues (including the one I roster him in).

Solid #4-6 type moving forward if your league is deep.

Renato Nunez has been streaking again, homering in 3 out of his last 4 games with 6 RBI over that span. He's also set to begin a 3 game set at Coors with a expectancy for a lot of homeruns.

Didn't realize until your recommendation how low his batting average had gotten.  Wow, but still not a bad recommendation, especially against any lefties Colorado will throw out there.  He can't hit righties (his splits against them are beyond awful), but his splits against lefties is actually pretty good even with his really low overall batting average.  So, he's at least a viable option for Saturday against Freeland.

Yeah, he took a long nosedive. He's only now starting to come out of it.
