Jhoulys Chacin, San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants
Chacin is not a good bet to pick up a win as he’s squaring off with Madison Bumgarner, but should put up solid numbers. Chacin is 8-7 with a 4.33 ERA, including 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in his past seven starts. He’s 2-0 against San Francisco with a 3.06 ERA. The Giants are hitting .243 and averaging 3.87 runs per game.

Alex Cobb
.
The second half of the baseball season is underway, which means teams are actively looking to make trades to improve their chances of making the playoffs while other teams have given up their pursuit of making the playoffs and are trying to get rid of some contracts. With teams getting better thanks to the trades, expect to see some changes in betting lines for the baseball season.

 

If you are a fantasy baseball player, it is important to keep track of the trades happening in the league because acting slowly can seriously affect your team and your chances of winning your league.

 

Players You Need to Sign

 

Alex Cobb, Pitcher, Tampa Bay: For the season, Cobb is 8-6 with a 3.59 ERA, which is slightly lower than his career ERA of 3.19. Due to an injury that forced him to miss the 2015, Cobb has been limited by his coaches to avoid another major injury, but has definitely pitched well enough to earn a spot on a fantasy roster.

 

Domingo Santana, Milwaukee Brewers, OF: 24-year-old Santana is having quite a season. He has a .293 batting average, 15 homeruns, and 50 RBI. Santana also has nine stolen bases, and is one of the reasons the Brewers have been playing well this year.

 

Starling Marte, Pittsburgh Pirates, OF: Marte started the season in a slump, then was suspended for 80 games after violating MLB’s PED rule, which led to a few experts suggesting fantasy owners drop him. Now that he is eligible to return to the lineup on Tuesday, it can’t hurt to get him on your roster.

 

Mike Clevinger, Cleveland Indians, Pitcher: Clevinger averages 9.2 strikeouts per 9 innings, which is great for fantasy enthusiasts. However, he also has a lot of walks but should still be able give you consistent points on your fantasy team.

 

Players to Drop/Sit

 

Mitch Haniger, Seattle Mariners, OF: Haniger has a lot of power, which is why he was a popular fantasy player to draft. However, he is only hitting .252 for the season, which isn’t very good for your fantasy team. You don’t have to drop him but he should ride the bench unless he has a favorable pitching matchup.

 

Michael Pineda, Pitcher, New York Yankees: Pineda was having a good season before suffering a season ending injury. With the Yankees starter expected to undergo Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, there is no point keeping him on your roster since he isn’t playing for the rest of the season and might not play next year either.

 

 

Joe Ross, Pitcher, Washington Nationals: Ross was already having a bad season and had a 5.01 ERA, which frustrated a lot of people that had him on their teams. However, the Nationals announced that Ross requires Tommy John surgery, which means he, like Pineda, will miss the rest of this season and might not return until 2019. Drop him as quickly as possible.

 

Jason Kipnis, Cleveland Indians, 2B: Kipnis was a high pick for a lot of fantasy owners because he is a two-time All-Star that has produced for fantasy owners in the past. However, Kipnis hasn’t been very good this year, and is currently hitting .232, which is a career low. At this point, there is no reason to keep him on your roster so you might as well drop him.
