The following players are widely available in Yahoo Fantasy Baseball formats and may be worth grabbing depending on the depth of your league.
Gavin Stone (13%) & Bobby Miller (22%), SP, Los Angeles Dodgers
Both potential players will get a chance in LA’s rotation Julio Urias And dustin may Lately the IL has been killing me. Stone and Miller pitched better in 2022 than they did to start 2023, but each envisioned playing for a Dodgers team that helped Tony Gonsolin Going 16-1 last year in just 130 innings.
Miller is a first-round pick with a big fastball, off to his best start to the season in Triple-A after dealing with shoulder soreness early in the year. Stone relies heavily on his changeup and struggled during his MLB debut earlier this season, but posted dominant numbers with a 1.12 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 35.5 K% last season at Triple-A.
Pitching Has Been Particularly Difficult in 2023 The league’s ERA increased more than expected. (even with the new rules), and many young pitching prospects are struggling as a result. Furthermore, the Dodgers’ schedule this week is incredibly difficult; Stone is set to face the Braves and Rays on the road – two of the top four offenses in WRC+ this season. Grabbing Stone and/or Miller but being patient another week if possible seems like the best move.
Louis Vreeland, SP, Minnesota Twins (29%)
Varland is somehow available in over 70% of Yahoo leagues despite strong peripherals in an incredibly pitching-starved fantasy environment. If he qualifies, both his SwStr% and K-BB% would rank in the top-20. its better than xFIP gerrit cole‘S. Vreeland is also due much better luck moving forward; His 23.3% HR/FB rate is easily the highest among starters, and his .292 BABIP comes with a .262 expected BABIP.
In a season full of young pitching busts (grayson rodriguezBABIP Expected .369 – Second biggest in MLB), Vereland has quietly impressed and looks poised to help fantasy managers through the rest of the season.
Brenton Doyle, OFF, Colorado Rockies (7%)
Doyle is not a great MLB prospect, but he is interesting enough in fantasy leagues with the power/speed skills he possesses when playing at Coors Field. He’s accumulated 10 homers/steals over his first 65 at-bats in the majors, and while that pace will undoubtedly be cool, Doyle’s Terrible defense in center field Keeping his at bat in Colorado’s lineup should help. the rookie has a 60-grade power and is Sprint speed in 98th percentile,
The Rockies get seven games left at Coors Field this week Most Favored Hitter Park Ever in Baseball, Coors Field has increased run scoring by an MLB-high 37% over the past three seasons, while it has also increased batting averages for right-handed batters by a league-high 18%. Doyle’s plate discipline (35.3 K% 4.4 BB%) is shaky, but his power/speed skills at Coors Field make him worth adding to a fantasy league – especially if you can stream him exclusively at home. Doyle rules!
Jared Walsh, 1B, Los Angeles Angels (9%)
Walsh looked like a sleeper entering 2022 down year due to an injury ultimately required season-ending surgery, He had more problems in spring training, like headaches and insomnia, but now he’s good to go. Walsh is only one season removed from swatting 29 homers with 98 RBI over 530 at-bats, and he posted 150 WRC+ in limited action the year before.
Walsh should now be the Angels’ first baseman in an otherwise right-heavy lineup. Angel Stadium has seen a 32% increase in homers to left-handed batters over the past three seasons – the third most among all MLB parks. Walsh is available in over 90% of Yahoo leagues.
Seth Brown, 1B/OF, Oakland A’s (23%)
Brown is expected to return from the IL on Monday and is likely to settle in the middle of the A’s lineup. Last season he had 25 homers and 11 steals over 150 games, with some encouraging early Statcast numbers before suffering an oblique injury this year. bat x 114 wRC+ the rest of the season. Oakland’s lineup isn’t the worst in the league as expected (not even bottom-10 in wRC+), and the team has got the green light to have the third-highest steals in 2023. healthy.
