Some great options this week for those looking to tweak their roster. A pair of huge prospects, Matt Harvey and Starling Marte, got the call and are giving every indication that they may be here to stay. The closer of the week is John Axford in the the Milwaukee revolving door bullpen. A catcher is worthy of a look due to injury and is one of a trio of Blue Jays on our radar. Finally we have a very young target (Luis Cruz) and a very old (Eric Chavez) that are already helping fantasy teams nationwide.
Happy All-Star break! With the trading deadline now on the horizon, we will begin to at least hear about proposed deals. If you are in a standard roto league, average category numbers like BA, ERA and WHIP are getting harder to move. (Although it certainly seems easy to drop in these categories, right?) You have a better chance to make a move in cumulative categories like HR, RBI, SB, W and S.
