Tigers 3B Jeimer Candelario
9 RBI since coming off the DL including an RBI in 4 straight games. Playing on the Tigers Candelario should see plenty of playing time. Owned in 31.6% of ESPN leagues and 31% of Yahoo leagues. .370 OBP may not be sustainable, but has a career minor league .349 OBP. Candelario is worthy of ownership in season leagues and a must in dynasty formats.
Royals OF Jon Jay
Owned in 11.2% ESPN and 11% Yahoo leagues. Jay is running hot playing everyday for the rebuilding Royals. Strong possibility Jay is flipped at deadline to a contender to serve as a 4th OF. Right now use his slash rate .304/.360/.374 in daily leagues. On a daily categories league I have some high strikeout players and using Jay helps to balance out the K’s.
Dodgers SP/RP Ross Stripling
2-start week Tuesday on the road with the Pirates and home Sunday vs. the Braves. 7 or more Strikeouts in 4 consecutive starts. Stripling’s ownership is 67% in ESPN and 69% in Yahoo leagues.
