Mets 2B/3B/OF Jeff McNeil
.342/.407/.494 slash rate so far this season in 263 plate appearances. I’m dumbfounded his ownership rates of 60% of ESPN just 53% in Yahoo leagues. Not a lot of power in McNeil, but with multiple position eligibility makes him a must own.
Pirates 2B/SS Kevin Newman
.347/.396/.469 slash rate the last 14 days. Newman was a 19th overall pick in the 2015 draft. Career minor league .343 OBP in 5 seasons. Owners looking for OBP and don’t need power should look to Newman. Keeper league players may also want to keep tabs on Newman to see if power develops with more big league plate appearances.
Rays RP Emilio Pagan
Diego Castillo is now on the IL with shoulder inflammation. Jose Alvarado is still working his way back from an absence. Pagan has a 1.23 ERA, 0.818 WHIP, and an 11.0 SO/9. Pagan may see save opportunities in the short term, but will still help owners with ratios.
