After the fantasy baseball draft you are on cloud nine. You daydream about sunny days with your perfect lineup. However, injuries happen and guys do underperform. Just like the MLB lineup changes so should yours. Stay close to http://www.fantasyalarm.com/mlb for all the latest intel to keep you away from nightmares.
-Hansel Robles, P, Mets
Robles should be a hot pickup with Jeurys Familia’s shoulder clot. When all the dominos fall, Addison Reed takes over the closer role which leaves Robles to set up. If Reed stumbles in the ninth inning, Robles could start earning you saves. Robles already has four wins this season behind his plus fastball and now he can start producing holds (and potentially saves).
-Jorge Soler, OF, Royals
Soler was once a can’t miss prospect with the Chicago Cubs but he didn’t have a big opportunity. Now with Kansas City the job is his to lose and he has a pretty long leash. Yes, he has gotten off to a slow start but it may be do to his long injury layoff and subsequent rust. Sooner or later the talent will show through.
-Ben Gamel, OF, Mariners
With Mitch Haniger sidelined, Gamel has become the man in the Pacific Northwest. His bat has produced a .373 average with two bombs and 11 RBI since his call up from AAA ball. He hasn’t shown it yet but he also possesses good speed, he can get you SBs as he did his teams in the minors.
