Top 5 Free Agents to Add
1). Adam LaRoche 1B Was 5 Runs 3 HR 10 RBI .333 AVG
Laroche has usually been prone to slow starts, but this season he looks like he might finally be bucking that trend. Perfect player to put in your utility spot.
2). Fernando Rodney RP TB 4.1 IP 3 K 1 W 3 SV 0.00 ERA 0.23 WHIP
Rodney is filling in admirably for Kyle Farnsworth as Tampa’s closer, racking up saves and even a win for fantasy owners already. If he keeps this up, he might not give up the closer position when Farnsworth gets back.
3). Zack Cozart SS CIN 8 R 1 HR 2 RBI .342 AVG
Cozart projects to be the perfect backup or even primary shortstop. His favorable offensive production and home park make him a solid acquistion.
4). Omar Infante 2B MIA 9 R 4 HR 6 RBI .343 AVG
Infante is straight beasting this season. Some concerns should be noted about his power, but his average should be legit regardless. Solid second basemen skills set!
5). Ardolis Chapman RP CIN 8 IP 15 K 2 W 0.00 ERA 0.38 WHIP
The guy is almost averaging 2 K’s per inning which is absolutely absurd. He is doing better at picking up strikeouts and keeping a low ERA/WHIP than almost all the starters still on the market.
3 Trends to Watch
1). Of Danny Duffy, Jeff Smaradzija, and Johan Santana which one, if not all of them, will keep up their stellar start.
2). Matt Kemp is on his way to at least half of his 50/50 performance, if he manages to go 50/30 I think his fantasy owners will still be quite happy!
3). Which closer could possibly lose his position first? Hector Santiago of the White Sox, Carlos Marmol of the Cubs, and Joe Nathan look to have a shaky hold on that position at best.
