It’s week number 13 of the Fantasy Baseball season and that means there are only 9 more match-ups left in many formats. If you haven’t done so already and you’d like to make the playoffs its time to sit down and evaluate where you are at and where your roster is headed. There aren’t any major injuries to report today so here is who I have for you this week from the waiver wire.
Brock Holt 3B OF Red Sox: The utility man extraordinaire is playing every day and hitting every day as well. His slash line of .327/.366/.447/.813 is above league average and while he won’t hit for too much power he’s a good source for runs, runs batted in and stolen bases. (Stats)
Derek Norris C Oakland: Norris plays nearly every day and when he isn’t in the lineup Bob Melvin uses him as a pinch hitter where he also excels. His slash line of .307/.409/.521/.931 ranks him second behind Jonathan Lucroy. Why not make the widely available Norris first on your roster this week? (Stats)
Omar Infante 2B Royals: Like most of the Royals Infante struggled early but seems to be righting the ship of late. Infante was in the midst of a 9 game hitting streak before getting it snapped on Friday which saw him hit 2 bombs. He could be a good one for you. (Stats)
Collin McHugh SP Astros: As long as you remember he pitches for the Astros you’ll be fine with his 4-5 record. The guy scores well in every pitching category other than wins and with 72 strikeouts in 65.1 innings of work, an ERA of 2.76 and a 1.09 WHIP this guy is a keeper. (Stats)
Tommy La Stella 2B Braves: La Stella has been moved to the lead off spot in the Braves lineup and that means more chances to score runs. You won’t see much power from him but this kid has an OBP of .398 and if those mashers hitting behind him ever get their act together La Stella is going to help your roster win matchups. (Stats)
Kole Calhoun OF Angels: Calhoun has been ripping the ball lately and his season slash line of .273/.331/.460/.792 is just about where he was projected at. He’ll hit some bombs for you and if you need a outfield bat Calhoun may be your man this week. (Stats)
