Cubs OF Jason Heyward
4 home games with the Diamondbacks followed by 3 on the road with the Cardinals. .321/.404/.449 slash rate the last 28 days. Career averages vs. Diamondbacks and Cardinals .213/.231 aren’t in Heyward’s favor, but I’d ride this hot streak. Owned in 39.4% of ESPN and 28% of Yahoo leagues.
Rays 2B/OF Joey Wendle
.343./.400/.567 slash rate over the last 28 days. The Rays are competitive, but could be in sell mode at the deadline. Wendle can help daily fantasy players with his multiple position eligibility. Owned in 11.5% of ESPN and 6% of Yahoo leagues.
Mets RP/SP Robert Gsellman
Expected to take over the closer’s role with Familia traded to Oakland. Gsellman is owned in 18.1% of ESPN and 29% of Yahoo leagues. The Mets are terrible and should let this 24-yr-old pitcher see what he can do. Owners that ride the closer carousel may want to make a claim for Gsellman. I own him in 2 of 4 leagues.
