BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Kansas City Royals first baseman Ryan O’Hearn continues to surprise and give the Royals hope that there are some young bats that can turn this organization around quicker than expected.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: Whether he is motoring around the bases or face-planting in the infield, Astudillo has been an exciting player to watch. Not only that but Astudillo, nicknamed La Tortuga (the turtle), has been a pleasure to own at the catcher position. In the last 14 days,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of leagues ANALYSIS: Hedges has become league average. That is a much-needed reprieve from the dumpster fire that is the catcher position this year. A .173 batting average with two homers and 30 strikeouts in April did not enlist a lot of confidence. However, he has turned... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has taken forever for people to realize that Johan Camargo is the third baseman for the Atlanta Braves and is more than a low-budget fill-in.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 40% of leagues ANALYSIS: Some people are waiting for the 2017 Trey Mancini to return. It is likely that will be one of his career-best performances.

Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty hit a homer in a 5-1 loss to the Yankees Tuesday. His homer in the second inning off J.A. Happ tied his career high with 22, set in 2016. Piscotty has been on absolute fire as of late. In the last 14 days, he is batting .327 with six homers... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of leagues ANALYSIS: Phillip Ervin was a first-round pick in the 2013 draft.

Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of leagues ANALYSIS: The collection of assets at the catcher position year has been disappointing this year. Hedges has been on a rollercoaster of performance this year. The first couple of months were terrible but he quickly turned things around in July (.308), but it was partially... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: Greg Allen was an afterthought for most fantasy managers, as he seemed like just another speed option that provided zero power with a mediocre batting average. He is doing his best to change people’s opinion with his second-half performance. During that time (79 at-bats),... Read More

Oakland Athletics outfielder Khris Davis homered in a comeback that fell short in an 8-7 loss to the Mariners Saturday. Davis leads the majors in homers with 40; he is second only to J.D.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of leagues ANALYSIS: Patience is key, particularly with young sophomore players.

Mancini has rewarded those been... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Flores has had a decent go of it this year and the results were likely more than most had expected.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of leagues ANALYSIS: Tyler White was first introduced when his ownership level was at 2%. Though his ownership has risen, he is still under-owned.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of leagues ANALYSIS: It is anyone's guess who is more surprised, the Braves organization or fantasy baseball managers.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: Tyler Austin was acquired by the Twins from the Yankees to serve as a power bat against left-handed pitchers.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of leagues ANALYSIS: At this stage of the season, you might just need a power bat that will get you over the hump in a couple of key categories.
