Outfield

Jorge Soler | Kansas City Royals

Jorge Soler has been good this season and even better as of late. He is hitting .375 with 2 homers and 6 RBI over the last 7 days. The former top prospect is reminding us of his prospect pedigree. On the season he is hitting .312 with 4 homers, 10 RBI, and 12 runs. While the Royals lineup is not stacked, there is enough to make Soler a viable option if you need OF help.

Michael Brantley | Cleveland Indians

The Indians Michael Brantley seems to finally be regaining form after an injury plagued past couple seasons. He is .357 with 2 homers, 10 RBI and 7 runs scored over the past 15 days. He is hitting cleanup for a Cleveland lineup with serious run scoring potential. He is a great add and available in almost half of ESPN and Yahoo! leagues.

Michael Taylor | Washington Nationals

In need of some speed help? The Nationals Michael Taylor could be your answer. He has ten steals on the season and four over the past two weeks. His average is just above the Mendoza line which isn’t ideal but he should continue to play most days. He also typically has a top five batting spot that should help his runs and RBI opportunity. If Taylor is unavailable, Delino DeShields could make sense as well.

Middle Infield

Jose Peraza | Cincinnati Reds

The Cincinnati Reds Jose Peraza has been raking over the last 15 days, hitting .364 with 2 homers, 8 RBI, and 12 runs scored. He has also been a nuisance on the basepaths, stealing three bases over that time frame. Peraza remains at or near the top of the Reds order and should continue to do so. He has 2B and SS eligibility on Yahoo! and ESPN. If you need MI help and he is available, click that add button today!

Daniel Robertson | Tampa Bay Rays

I’m going to continue to pound the table for the Rays Daniel Robertson, who is still under owned. A week ago I told you to add him. He is hitting .359 with 2 homers, 5 runs and 5RBI over the last 15 days. Robertson hits in the heart of the Rays order and should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs and score them himself. Peraza would be my top option but Robertson is a great contingency plan.

Nationals Matt Adams

Corner

Matt Adams | Washington Nationals

The Nationals Matt Adams is crushing the last two weeks. He is hitting .387 with 4 homers, 11 RBI and 8 runs scored. He continues to hit in the meat of the order with Daniel Murphy, Adam Eaton and others missing time. Ryan Zimmerman has been riding the struggle bus thus far and could easily find himself on the bench for either performance or injury issues. Adams showed flashes last season with the Nats and Braves that he could be viable for fantasy. If you need help on the corner our outfield (where he is also eligible) add Adams this week.

Eduardo Escobar | Minnesota Twins

Eduardo Escobar is great add this week especially in you need flexibility. On Yahoo! he is eligible at third base and both middle infield spots. Over the last 15 days, he is hitting .320 with 3 homers, 7 RBI, and 11 runs scored. He is hitting 4th everyday for the Twins and should provide solid production the rest of the way.

Matt Davidson | Chicago White Sox

As ESPN’s Tristian Cockroft loves to say, it’s all about juicing the orange. This week, Matt Davidson is that orange. Over the last 15 days he is hitting .318 with 4 homers, 7 RBI and 6 runs. Davidson has a ton of power potential but his average fluctuates wildly. He hit .225 in the month of April. If you need a punch, add Davidson but be ready to move on if he starts to struggle again.

Catcher

Kurt Suzuki | Atlanta Braves

Are you dealing with an ineffective or injured catcher? Kurt Suzuki might be an option for you. He is batting .304 on the season with 5 home runs, 5 RBI and 14 runs scored. He continues to hit in the heart of a surging Braves lineup that just added Ronald Acuna. Suzuki will provide stability on a weekly basis and won’t kill your average while offering some pop.
