Some Fantasy Pickups

The following report contains some hitters that you might want to consider adding to your fantasy baseball roster for the week of June 9th.

First, if you are looking at players from either the St. Louis Cardinals or the Miami Marlins know that both these teams have two scheduled days off this week as you make your selections.

American League

Brock Holt from the Boston Red Sox. In the last 15 days he has gone 23/64 with 10 runs, 7 RBI’s, a stolen base, a home run and a .359 batting average. Plus, he has now started playing the outfield so he will soon be eligible at both third base and the outfield.

If Alex Gordon is still available in your league, snatch him up. In his last 7 days he is 7/16 with 5 runs, 4 RBI’s a home run, a stolen base and a .438 batting average.

Quite a few people do not know about Oswald Arcia who plays in the Minnesota outfield but you will look smart when you pick him up with 15 day production like his with 7 runs, 4 home runs, 12 RBI’s and a .308 batting average.

National League

There are two Arizona Diamondbacks you should take a look at, one for a long-term and one more for the short-term. Long term take a look at Martin Prado. First, he is currently qualified at third base, second base, and the outfield while his 15 day production has him hitting .357 with a stolen base, two home runs, 10 runs and 8 RBI’s. Arizona outfielder David Peralta was called up when A.J. Pollack went on the DL. He has been up for a week and last night was the only night he has not had a hit with 6 runs, a home run and an impressive .357 average.

If you need a good batting average from a second baseman look no further than Atlanta’s Tommy La Stella’s .333 in his last 7 games.

Corey Dickerson is now going to get plenty of playing time with both Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer on the DL. Plus, in the last 15 days his numbers are 3 home runs and 6 RBI’s with a .270 average and a stolen base as well.
