Josh Tomlin continued his early season success pitching 6.2 innings of four hit beisbol, allowing just one run and striking out four for his second win of the year. Josh is now 2-0 through his first two starts with a 1.54 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 10 strikeouts. He’s available in over 90% of ESPN leagues. Am I missing something? Tomlin was part of my championship pitching staff last year. No. I didn’t win, but I still made the finals, so that counts as a championship team, right? Tomlin finished 2015 especially strong giving up just 14 runs in 49.3 IP with a 44/3 K/BB rate, and two complete games. Can he keep it up? Let’s look at the stats. First, Josh’s ESPN player page photo looks a whole lot like Bradley Cooper. Second, Tomlin’s .219 BABIP for 2015 was laughably low, and he’s not exactly a strikeout machine. That said, he doesn’t walk anyone either. Doode throws strikes, and his 3.2 BB% from 2015 is no fluke. If we look further into the advanced stats (NERD!), we see Josh doesn’t induce a lot of ground ball outs either, and his fly ball percentage was 46.2 last year. Basically, he could give up a lot of long balls. Or not, what do these numbers know anyway. I’ll tell you what I know. Josh Tomlin has been pitching very well dating back to last September and he has a juicy match up with the Twins next week. He’s certainly a worthy streaming option in the right match up and I’d give him a chance next week in Minnesota.

Here’s what else I saw Friday night in fantasy baseball:

Javiez Baez – 2-for-4, 3 runs, HR (1), SB (1). The slam & legs! In Chicago, they serve their slam and legs in a poppy seed bun with neon relish, jalapenos, italian beef, and a polish sausage on top. Then they wrap all of that in an authentic meat lovers deep dish pizza. Mmmm, heart burn. Anyway, If there’s one thing the Cubs need right now, it’s another young, hot-shot power-hitting prospect. How long before Baez is playing everyday? I don’t know, but you should grab him before someone else does.

Anthony Rizzo – 1-for-3, HR (6). HR to the Rizzo! Anthony is batting under .200, but with 6 homers and 17 RBI I don’t even care. Batting average is for losers. He’s so hot right now.

Justin Verlander – 7.0 IP, 4 hits, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10 K. Does he still date Kate Upton? Because if so I still don’t like him.

Carlos Santana – 2-for-4, HR (3). Carlos led off in this one because Tito Francona is a mad man. Crazy or just crazy enough to work? It paid of with a first inning homer, so you tell me.

Ryan Madsen – 1.0 IP, SV (7). Grey told you to BUY. You can drop your Doolittles and add your Madsens. Mmm, now that sounded kind of sexual. Nothing sexier than SAGNOF!

Chris Coghlan – 1-for-4, 2 runs, HR (3). With Danny Valencia injured, Coghlan should see increased playing time at third. He’s got a 5 game hitting streak and has homered in back to back games, so maybe this is the start of something great. Well, maybe not great, but good.

Miguel Sano – 2-for-4, HR (3). Sano was going crazy early in drafts and I was all like, “Whaaa?” But now I’m like, “Ohhh.”

Logan Forsythe – 2-for-5, run, 2 RBI. You can call him Weapon X. Logan has hit safely in his past five games (9-for-20), and is leading off for the Devil Rays. You don’t need an adamantium exoskeleton to see that could be worth a flier.

Jacoby Ellsbury – 2-for-3, run, 2 RBI, SB (5). Aaron Hicks left this game with an injury giving Ells a chance to show what he’s about. He’s a 31 year old who sits against most lefties and is a threat to steal and an even bigger threat to get injured again. Looking to trade. You interested in Ellsbury or nah?

Jose Quintana – 7.0 IP, 4 hits, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, W. I have big plans for Jose Quintana and I. We are going backpacking through Patagonia, one of the harshest environments imaginable, and its there, in the mountains of Chile, on the tip of a glacier, at the bottom of any icy crevasse, where our bond will truly grow into something special. Here’s hoping he gets roughed up by the Jays next week so I can trade for him everywhere.

Steven Wright – 6.2 IP, 4 hits, 0 ER, 5 BB, 6 K, W. The Knucklah! That’s how we say it in Boston. We also call water fountains “bubblahs” and hipsters “queeahs.” Wright has pitched great so far with a 1.40 ERA and 8.10 K/9, and he was this close to being my lede. However, I figured “The Wright Stuff” was an obvious headline and that knuckle ball makes him a very unpredictable option and tough to recommend. Still, he has been three times flame emoji I could see streaming him against the lowly Braves on Wednesday.

Collin McHugh – 4.0 IP, 10 hits, 5 ER, BB, 3 K. More like McUGH. I will take this blurb to speak on how poorly I’m doing in the RCL league I commish. Very poorly. Now let us never speak on it again.

Mookie Betts – 4-for-5, 3 runs, RBI. I love Mookie more than I could ever love a human baby. Uh oh! Speaking of babies, I think I left mine in the back yard! Whoops! Don’t worry, I let him outside before I went to work yesterday, and refilled his water dish so he’s probably fine.

Travis Shaw – 2-for-4. Shaw leads all Red Sox players in batting average. He also gets free Dunkin Donuts iced regulahs for life, so he’s someone you want to be friends with. Grey told you BUY. Pick him up, guy, it’ll be wicked.

Xander Bogaerts – 2-for-4. Awesome-X left game this game in 9th after being hit on the hand by a pitch. Nooooo! My flame. My muse. I hope you’re okay. So this is what it feels like, when doves cry. Come back soon, Xander. You will be missed, Prince.

Matt Harvey – 5.0 IP, 7 hits, 2 ER, BB, 5 K, W. And his first win. I’m not saying I thought he’d never win another game again. In fact, I never said that. That would be cray. Let’s move on.

Curtis Granderson – 3-for-5, 2 HR (4), 5 RBI. Oh hey, I remember you!

Adonis Garcia – 3-for-5, run, RBI. Adonis is batting clean up for the Braves and if Freddie Freeman can ever get his shizz together Adonis might benefit. With a name like Adonis, I feel like he should have more than one home run. I’m not wrong.

Nolan Arenado – 2-for-3, 3 runs, HR (7). Sadly, after owning Nolan everywhere last year, he is nowhere to be found this year on any of my many fantasy rosters. Sigh. Missin’ u so bad rn, bae.

Corey Seager – 2-for-3, HR (2). YES! This is why you drafted him four rounds too early. Don’t feel bad, I did it too.

Jordy Mercer – 3-for-4, HR (1). Mercer has been leading off versus lefties and that leads me to the question: why isn’t Gregory Polanco leading off? Grego is batting almost .300 with two homers, 12 runs and 2 SB. If he were leading off we can extrapolate that…calculating…calculating…calculating…uhh, I no math good. Or English either, I guess. That’s like, double the stats! Make it happen, Hurdle!

Wellington Castillo – 2-for-5, 2 HR (5). He’s one of the best catchers in fantasy baseball right now. Which makes sense because he’s available in about 75% of leagues. Lolz. Catchers be catchin’.

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-4, HR (3), 3 RBI. The ninth inning jack! Shimmy shimmy cocoa what? Listen to him pound!

Hisashi Iwakuma – 8.0 IP, 6 hits, 2 ER, BB, 3 K. I went to ramen with Hisashi last week (ramen is so hawt right now), and Iwakuma got very upset with me for asking for my ramen to go. Luckily, it was community seating so he didn’t make a scene. I told him I felt rude slurping in public, but Hishahi my dashi–SLURP SLURP, assured me slurping is never rude when your fantasying with him on the mound.

C.J. Cron – 1-for-4, HR (1). CRON AIR!

Jeff Samardzija – 7.2 IP, 6 hits, ER, 5 K, W. Z-Marge also added 2 hits and 3 RBI to help his own cause! Shark looks to be loving life in SF. Probably because after home games he can go chill with his fam in the San Francisco Bay surrounding Alcatraz island. See what I did there? Because sharks? U like dat joke or nah? I shood make more puns or nah? Arrieta available for trade or nah? U interested in Freddie Freeman or nah?

Adam Wainwright – 6.0 IP, 7 hits, 3 ER, BB, 2 K. Waino looked better in this one, but still not great, especially considering this was the P-Dres. Adam’s command has been not good. He’s not locating his fastball and his breaking ball hasn’t been effective either. He’s getting hit hard as a result. He could be the perfect buy low candidate for the right price.

Andrew Cashner – 6.0 IP, 3 hits, ER, BB, 4 K, W. Str8 Cashner, homey! Andrew hasn’t been as bad as his stats suggest, but he hasn’t been very good either. He’s been averagely mediocre. In fact, he’s so boring I shouldn’t even be writing this blurb about him. Forget you read any of this.

Wil Myers – 3-for-3, HR (4), SB (2). Wil the Thril! I do love me some Wil “I passed the other L to the Homey on My Left” Myers. He’s got a 7 game hitting streak with 2 homers and a steal in that span. The fact that he’s only walked twice versus striking out 24 times might deter some. But not me. I got nothing but blind love for Wil. I can feel a breakout coming in my gut. But that could just be stomach pains from all the Carl’s Jr. I ate this week. There’s something about Carl’s raw, greasy, grossness that makes me love it so much. I think the same can be said for Wil Myers.

Mike Moustakas – 3-for-4, HR (6), 3 RBI. Oh hey, Moose. Remember when you were the bane of my existence? Me neither! You the man now, dog!

Manny Machado – 1-for-4, HR (6). HIT ALL THE BASEBALLS!

Chris Young – 6.0 IP, 4 hits, 2 ER, BB, 10 K, W. Matched his season total strikeouts to date in one start last night. I’d be wary of his start in Anaheim next week, but you don’t have to listen to me. I’m not your therapist.

Aaron Nola – 7.0 IP, 4 hits, ER, 2 BB, 7 K, W. Speaking of therapists, mine says I have to stop obsessing over Aaron Nola because despite his 30/5 K/BB rate he plays for Philadelphia and if you play for Philadelphia, you’re gonna have a bad time. However, my therapist is also in my fantasy league so I’m trying to figure out what angle he’s playing. I have to tread carefully or he’ll stop selling me adderoll.

Maikel Franco – 3-for-4, 2 HR (4), 3 RBI. I was hanging out with the Franco brothers on Thursday night. Dave is cool enough, but he’s engaged Alison Brie so we could never truly be friends. James is–well, he’s a pretty weird guy, but he’s charming for god sake, and his arm has grown back nicely. Still, Maikel is slugging .500 and has four home runs and is the clear cut favorite if you’re going to own one of the brothers on your fantasy team.

Chris Carter – 2-for-4, run, RBI. Grey told you to BUY and you should really pick up Chris Carter before aliens kidnap your sister and you have to dedicate your life to finding her. For real. How often is a 35 home run power hitter just sitting on waivers for you. He’s already got four jacks with 14 RBI, and the .259 AVG and .921 OPS are added bonuses, although I would expect those to drop sooner than later. You don’t have to be Mulder or Scully to see that Carter aka “the truth” is out there on the waiver wire, begging you to add. I will wait here, Samantha isn’t coming back any time soon.

    Hi Dan.

    Posted this in another thread but curious to get your thoughts. Prospect pitching question. This is a 12 team, $260 salary cap league, medium depth.

    Should I keep Giolito $7 and Urias $1 or drop them to pick up Blake Snell $1 and Alez Reyes $1. Let me explain. If I keep giolito and urias they have to be signed to contracts March 2017 at a rate of $5 per year plus current salary. So 3 years on Giolito would be $22 per year and 3 years on urias would be $16 for 3 starting next year. Meanwhile, Snell and Reyes would be $1 next year and then need to be signed to similar deals in March 2018 so they essentially get an extra year of eligibility.

    I could also keep Giolito and Urias and drop Benitendi or Berrios both $1 for this year and next and then signed March 2018.

    My starters right now are JoFer $22 for 3 years and Salazar $4 , Matz $1, Iglesias $1, Eduardo Rodriguez $3 and Gausman $1 all needing to be signed next year.

    So buying an extra year for keepers would give me some cap options. Though any of the guys above could be traded.

    Also I started the year 2-0 so am playing for this year and Urias and Giolito could really help this year when called up. Plus maybe they are so much better than Snell and Reyes that it’s now worth cutting them for those guys.

    Thanks!

      @Wild Thing: I’d hold for now. $7 does seem high for Giolito

    Yo Dan,

    I know it’s early, but my bats are killing me in my 6×6 Roto (OBP, TB, NSB, R, HR, RBI, QS, H, S, ERA, WHIP, K) with limited moves (30 on the season). Two questions: (1) Drop Wieters for Castillo or d’Arnaud and (2) Would you look to upgrade anywhere via trade? Many thanks!

    C- M. Wieters

  6. Fake Jose Abreu says:
    (link)

    Who’s the worst centerfielder (in a league with differentiated outfield slots) that you could see yourself trading Michael Pineda for?

    Billy Burns?

    Assume that your current best attempt at a centerfielder in this scenario is named Melvin.

    Sincerely,
    Not Jose Abreu

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:

      @Fake Jose Abreu: Maybe you could get a DeShields, Ellsbury, Eaton, Fowler, or Pederson type?

  7. Hugman says:

    Correction: Polanco has two homers, as he hit out of the 8-hole last night (for which I sat him). What is Hurdle doing to my fantasy team?!

  9. Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
    (link)

    Great writeup, Dan! I’ve been thinking the same with Baez. What do you think about having eventual-super-utility Baez as your 2nd bench bat in a 10 team daily lineup H2H redraft Obp/ops league? Right now I’ve got Delino + Joc as my two bench bats (with Trout Springer Upton Votto as my starting OF and UTL) and Story as my SS – with such an oF surplus I’m thinking of dropping Joc for Javy…

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:
      (link)

      @Duda Want to Build a Snowman?: Baez could provide more position eligibility than Joc in the future, but I think Pederson is just starting to warm up and wouldnt drop him just yet.

      • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:
        (link)

        @Dan Pants: thanks! Sort of similar, but what do you think of Rendon (my current 2B) v Weapon X (on waivers), again in this OBP league?

        Seem like very similar players to me, with Forsythe maybe getting a small edge in HR and SB…

  10. JT says:

        No–when CC gets hot, few compare. Look at 2nd half stats from 14. Almost historic.
        Or he’s the title from classic Foreigner.

      • Dan Pants

    Best add for 5×5 obp league in a vaccum?

    Shaw, M upton, C Carter, D santana, baez?

    It’s a weekly league so in hesitant to take a player who will platoon a lot but I don’t have any specific needs right now except maybe obp. Just looking for upside bench bat. What do you think? Thanks!

    Bonus question R Martin or M Monterro Ros?

    What’s good Senor Pantalones? I just dropped Carlos Santana for Castellanos in my H2H OBP league and he goes out and drops a bomb batting leadoff…sigh. I go back and forth on what to do long-term at the 1B/3B position. How would you rank Castellanos, Santana, Myers, and Shaw?

    I know Grey just told us to buy Schoop, and I already have him at second base, but I’m beginning to get thoughts of moving Segura there and picking up Aledmys Diaz. Crazy talk?

    Have a good weekend!

    Dan, this buxton guy suppose to be best prospect for 3 years and last year I believe he shouldn’t of been brought up and it showed. Now we approaching May and this guy still strikes out a ton are we still see I a 5 category guy? I don’t see power at all, just plenty of speed. Should I drop him? Thus far looks like Ben revere.

    10 team keeper league guess he’s really annoying me cause of all of the hype

    16 team 6×6 dynasty h2h. Use qs and k/bb for pitchrrs and ops for hitters. Looking for pitching depth. Considering moving dickerson. He’s behind stanton, marte, cruz, brantley, blackmon. I can use a max of 4. Would you move him for any of niese, kennedy, kazmir, mchugh? I’d like quintana but think he’s more expensive than just dickerson

    Good afternoon Vietnam!!

    H2h pts league/ weekly lock too

    Hold onto Kyle seager or drop him for moustakas ? Or still add mooooose but hold seager & drop let’s say Addison Russell? Russell is listed at 2b & SS, my 2b is odor & SS is bogartes & story at IF (but he’s a SS), then on my bench I have lindor.

    Next for RP; hold onto my Hector rodon or drop him for either papelbon or Ryan madsen?

      @Frog man:

      Or add Baez? I had him before but dropped him do to his playing time

        @Frog man: Drop Rodon for Papelbon. Stick with Seager for now. I might drop Corbin for Walker or Maeda as well.

          Thoughts on stashing trea turner?

            @Frog man: I think your league is probably too shallow to need to stash a player like Turner.

    Drop Dickerson for Baez?

    Hiya Pants
    Great title. You watching Blake Snell’s start. This kid looks good nice polish to him too.

    Dan & anyone else who wants to chime in,
    10-tm H2H categories, even stats
    My low end pitching guys are:
    Finnegan & M. Leake
    Thinking of dropping Leake, grabbing homer Bailey, putting him on my DL and then grabbing (stashing) Snell, good move?
    Other waiver options: Tomlin, Porcello, Rich Hill

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:

      @John: Sure. I have little faith is Homer Bailey, but I like Snell a lot.

    Hey –

    Tried this post elsewhere but might have missed the cutoff . . .

    Looking to up my stats for relievers. In a league that counts HOLDS + SAVES. I currently have Papelbon, Jepsen, and Vizcaino. Thinking of replacing Jepsen or Vizcaino with Herrera for the increased opportunites. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    • Dan Pants

      Dan Pants says:

      @Jeff: Sure, Kelvin Herrera has been hot fire.

        @Dan Pants: which one would you drop?

      @nitro: I think alhoun is a lot safer bet, but Baez has bigger upside.

    10 team league. After today’s performance. Is Roarke still considered a streamer?

      @AllBurnedUp: Minnesota is real bad, but 15 strikeouts is enough for me to take a flier on Roark wherever I could.

    I got OF problems. 5×5 + Hits + OPS + QS h2h 10 teamer.
    OF1- Chris Davis (Hosmer CI, T White Util)
    OF2- Marte
    OF3- Hanley
    OF4- Holiday
    Bench- Delino, Billy Burns

    I feel like there’s no more Zombino possiblity in Hanley and Holiday.

    Who should I drop from Burns, Delino, Hanley, Holiday?

    Wire options– Wil Myers, Domingo Santana, Alex Gordon…

    Matz Baez Gausman enough of a return for Scherzer? 15 teams keep 11

      @Nightpandas: Sounds fair. I’d still want the Scherzer side though

    Hi Dan!

    Which one would you rather start this week:

    J. Ross @STL. He was supposed to have two starts this week, but they’re skipping the first one due to a blister, so I am slightly concerned he might not be back for the second one either, although it sounds like he should be
    Wainwright @AZ
    Cashner @SF

    Thank you very much!
