Week 12 Fantasy Baseball Circle Of Trust

Rockies 1B/OF Ian Desmond

.357/.409/.631 slash rate the last 28 days.  2 venues Desmond has historically struggled on the docket this week with the Diamondbacks and Dodgers on the road. Owns a career .243 avg. in Arizona and .202 avg. in Los Angeles.  With the recent hot streak I would recommend keeping Desmond in lineups.

Angels RP Hansel Robles

10 Saves for the Halos so far this season. 8.6 SO/9 and 1.050 WHIP will help owners looking for Saves.  Cody Allen was released and Ty Buttrey may be kept in a setup role due to his versatility. Robles seems to have a long enough leash to warrant more ownership.  I picked Robles up in a few leagues to replace Blake Parker in my lineup.

Royals SP/RP Ian Kennedy

34-year-old hurler has successfully made the conversion from starter to reliever.  It took a while for Ned Yost to stand by Kennedy as his man. But Ned is now showing the world he loves him.  The last 4 appearances have gone for Saves. The best way to showcase Kennedy is to have him get outs in the 9th inning.  In 5 June appearances Kennedy has a 16.6 SO/9 and 0.923 WHIP. The reality is at $16.5 million for this season and $16.5 million for next season, Kennedy will be tough to move in a trade.  The Royals will essentially have to pay to make Kennedy go away. Fantasy owners looking for Saves can take advantage of the SP eligibility. I own Kennedy in multiple leagues.
