Braves SS/3B Johan Camargo
.371 OBP over the last 28 days. Has scored a run in 4 out of his last 6 games. 8 games this scoring period 2 at home with the Blue Jays and 3 vs. the Diamondbacks followed by 3 on the road against the Nationals. The eventual arrival of Austin Riley may have been postponed with a knee injury. Riley is rehabbing in rookie league ball and will eventually return to AAA. Strikeouts are still high for the 21-year-old prospect. Camargo’s production may be able to keep Riley in the minors for the time being. Camargo can help daily players looking for OBP and low K. Owned in 18.5% of ESPN and 23% of Yahoo leagues.
Reds OF Jesse Winkler
I would consider Winkler in a DFS play for his .391 OBP. His playing time isn’t consistent enough to merit weekly locking leagues as of yet. Owned in 14.8% of ESPN and 16% of Yahoo leagues. Could carve out more of a role as the 2nd half approaches, but fantasy players need to be selective when to deploy Winkler at this stage. Has 3 games on the road vs. the Indians, 3 on the road with the Cardinals, and 3 home against the Pirates.
Tigers SP Jordan Zimmerman
Faces the Rays in Tampa on Wednesday. Has been a huge free agent disappointment due to injuries. Since returning from the DL, Zimmerman has a 1.80 ERA and 0.72 WHIP in 25 innings. 24:1 K:BB ratio not too shabby either. ESPN ownership is 18.2% while 23% in Yahoo leagues. Worth the pickup for this matchup and to see if he can keep it going.
