Padres CF Manuel Margot
Has started to turn the corner last 14 days to the tune of a .405/.450./.595 slash rate. Margot hasn’t stolen a base in that time period. I would be surprised if Margot didn’t start to swipe a few bags sooner rather than later. Buy low period may be closing soon. Owned in 14.6% of ESPN and 28% of Yahoo leagues. Faces the Rangers on the road and the Pirates at home this matchup.
Blue Jays DH 1B Kendrys Morales
.333/.384/.538 slash rate the last 28 days. The talk of a release to bring up Vlad Jr. was a bit premature. Owned in 6.6% of ESPN and 14% of Yahoo leagues. Faces the Astros and Tigers this matchup. Tigers have a team ERA of 4.45. Morales owns are career .316 avg. against Wednesday’s starter Dallas Keuchel.
Pirates SP Jameson Taillon
2 road starts this week Monday with the Mets and Sunday against the Padres. The Mets are batting .239 as a team vs. Right-handers while the Padres check in at .235. Taillon is inconsistent, but these are exploitable matchups. Taillon is owned in 57.5% of ESPN and 76% of Yahoo leagues.
