“All Things Fantasy” (6-25-12)

Here is the Monday, June 25th, 2012 edition “All Things Fantasy”. Jeff Erickson from rotowire.com stop by to talk some fantasy baseball. We talk about the recent prospect call ups, some closer situations, and much more. Also, I talk some fantasy football and the best way to optimize your bench. Here are my notes from the show and check out the article I wrote for FantasyPPR http://fantasyppr.com/2012/06/26/optimizing-your-bench/.

Here are my notes from the show

Wil Myers C,

Chris Nelson 2B, 3B Col (ESPN 10%)- in his last 11 games he has 7 runs, 3 HR, 10 RBIs and a great .350 BA. Really like this guy going forward. hes going to get a lot of PT with TULO hurt and has been recently.

Cody Ross OF, Bos (55%)- has been tearing the cover off the ball since his return from the DL. In the 6 games he has played since returning he has 5 runs, 3 HRs, 10 RBIs, and has gone 7/22 .318 BA. PT is no longer an issue with youklis traded. This guy has  a lot of power and will get RBIs, but his average is nothing great.

Quintin Berry OF, DET (9.3%)- in his last 6 games he has started he has gone 9/23 with 4 runs, 1 HR, 4 rbi and 3 SB. He is a speedster who bats atop the Tigers lineup. He should continue to see plenty of playing time and will contribute in SBs and runs. He did hit his first career homerun so don’t expect him to hit many more. He also has a .396 OBP on the season

Salvador Perez C, KC (6%)- already has a HR this season. Is a great addition for any fantasy team. this guy can hit for average and will get plenty of RBIs and the occasional bombski

Leonys Martin OF, TEX- hes more of a watchlist player

Jon Jay OF, STL-(31.5%) has a good hitter, can contribute all around including SBs.

Trevor Bauer SP, ARIZ

Ross Detwiler SP, RP WSH (12.4%)- recently became a starter again for the Nationals and had a solid outing as he went 5 inngs, 3 Ks, 0 ERs and gave up 4 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings, Look for him to put up similar numbers. He wont go long innings but will be sharp in the innings he pitches

Jose Quintana SP, RP CHI WS (21%)-  his stats the last 3 starts have been nothing pure greatness. He has pitched 21. 1/3 innings, striking out 14 while compiling a 0.42 ERA ( 1ER) and a 0.98 WHIP. He does go against the Yankees this week but he still can picked up. He hasnt walked a batter in last 3 starts.

Bobby Parnell RP, NYM (14.3%)- Is now the closer for the Mets and should be able to get some saves. This is more of a stop-gap but if your desperate for saves look no further than this guy.

Jair Jurrjens SP, ATL (11%)- in his first start back from the DL he pitched awesomely going 7 2/3 innings striking out 4 and only giving up 3 hits and 1 walk. He got the W.
