Mets 2B Neil Walker
Over his last 6 games has caught fire with a .462 avg. 6 Runs, 2 Dongs, and 10 RBI. Has a terrific career track record hitting in Arizona to the tune of a .350 clip. Limited career data hitting in Anaheim. Walker is available in over 60% of leagues. I picked him up in daily cats league.
Giants OF Denard Span
Career numbers vs. this week’s opponents Dodgers and Cardinals aren’t great, but worth riding current hot streak. 9/21 since returning from the DL with 4 Runs, 2 Dongs and 3 RBI. Owned in just 4.9% of leagues. I picked him up in a weekly league. Needed help in my Outfield.
Brewers RP Corey Knebel
30 K, 0.95 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 11 Holds. Available in 60 % of leagues on average. Knebel should be able to hold off Neftali Feliz and Jacob Barnes for the closer’s job. On a rebuilding club, there’s no reason to go back to the failing veteran in Feliz. The Brewers have been playing good ball and should look to keep momentum going with Knebel at the helm. I believe Knebel is a top 15 closer the rest of the season. Own him in 3 of 5 leagues. Still available in one league and I forgot to make that weekly Sunday 7pm waiver claim. Was spending time with my Mom on Mother’s Day.
