Orioles 1B/OF Trey Mancini
Owned in 56% of Yahoo and 64.7% of ESPN leagues. Crushed me in a few matchups this week with 8 Runs 3 Ding-Dongs 6 RBI and a 1.096 OPS. Faces the Phillies at home for a pair followed by 4 on the road with the Red Sox. Owns a 1.266 OPS in 42 career plate appearances at Fenway. Ride Mancini in all formats while he’s hot.
Mariners 3B Kyle Seager
3 HR 8 RBI this past week. I resisted a few trade overtures trying to buy low on Seager. Owned in 81% of Yahoo and 84.3% of ESPN leagues. Starting to play to the back of his baseball card. Has 6 consecutive seasons of 20 or more Ding-Dongs. Has a makeup game on the road with the Twins followed by home matchups with the Rangers and Tigers. Buy low window for Seager more than likely is closed, but a solid player in DFS.
Pirates Trevor Williams
2-home starts this week vs. the White Sox and Padres. Williams has a 1.17 WHIP thru 46 innings this season. Owned in 49% of Yahoo and 50.2% of ESPN leagues. White Sox are hitting .242 as a team while the Padres check in at .227. Not exactly Murderers’ Row.
