MLB: Blue Jays acquire Yunel Escobar, Braves acquire Alex Gonzalez in a 5 player trade
The Atlanta Braves traded SS Yunel Escobar, and P Jo-Jo Reyes to the Toronto Blue Jays for SS Alex Gonzalez, P Tim Collins, and SS Tyler Pastornicky.
Yunel Escobar was a hot topic in 2009 but the Braves were selling too high for teams. Escobar if traded last year could of reeled in a top prospect but now with his poor year they got less. Escobar will replace Alex Gonzalez at shortstop and will provide some future there. The Braves who I guess got impatient with Escobar will get a powerful bat in Alex Gonzalez. Gonzalez has 17 homers, and 50 RBI’s which exactly the power bat they need to stay ahead in the NL East. Gonzalez is going to be a hot topic in fantasy baseball because he should get more RBI opportunities. Prediction for Gonzalez: 31 Homers, 108 RBI’s.

Fantasy Baseball Adds and Drops: Catchers Edition
Cleveland Indians – Carlos Santana
Since being called up Carlos Santana has been consistent with the bat. In his last 10 games he is batting .387, has 12 hits, 6 doubles, 4 homers, 10 RBI’s, and 7 Walks. Santana also bats in the 3 spot so look for his bat to produce more RBI’s. A solid option at catcher or utility especially if you are in a deep league.
Arizona Diamondbacks – Miguel Montero
Since coming of the DL Montero hasn’t struggled like players usually do. In his last 10 games he is batting .350, has 14 hits, 4 doubles, 2 homers, 6 RBI’s, and 4 Walks. Montero bats cleanup behind Kelly Johnson, Stephen Drew, and Justin Upton. All who are capable of getting on base to let Montero drive them in. Another solid pickup at catcher or utility.
Florida Marlins – Ronny Paulino
Ronny Paulino has been consistent with the bat. He has been batting .300 or above since May 25th. So he may not rack up the RBI’s but he can help your team average. In his last 10 games he is batting .333, has 12 hits, 5 doubles, 0 homers, 3 RBI’s, and 5 Walks. Like I said before Paulino will help with your team average but don’t look for him to produce power numbers.
Milwaukee Brewers – Jonathan Lucroy
Since being called up Lucroy has hit in 12 of his 16 games with 5 of them being multi-hit games. Lucroy has won the battle at starting catcher over George Kottaras so you should see Lucroy progress with more at bats. In his last 10 games he is batting .325, has 13 hits, 3 doubles, 1 homer, 3 RBI’s, and 3 Walks. Certainly not a big power bat but he is like Ronny Paulino and will raise your teams average.
New York Mets – Rod Barajas
Rod Barajas was a great option in the beginning of the season but has visibly slowed down. His power numbers have been down, and he is just not hitting like before. In his last 10 games he is batting .172, has 5 hits, 0 doubles, 0 homers, 1 RBI, and 3 Walks. Clearly not producing and can really bring a fantasy team down. Cut him especially if an option above to add is still there.
Washington Nationals – Ivan Rodriguez
Ivan has been a surprise thus far. Though he is on the drop list he deserves an honorable mention for his first half performance. The reason he should be dropped is because despite seeing a .303 average and saying thats not bad. He has been steadily declining since the start of the season. Since May 10th he has dropped 90 points in his batting average. He also was on the DL for a bit which can be a blame for his decline as well as age. In his last 10 games he is batting .156, has 5 hits, 0 doubles, 0 homers, 3 RBI’s, and 1 Walk. Clearly he is slowing down and doesn’t show signs of revival. Drop him if one of the guys to add is still there or trade him.
San Francisco Giants – Bengie Molina
Bengie Molina’s power seems all but diminished. 3 homers and 17 RBI’s is no where close to what he has been doing the last 5 years. In his last 10 games he is batting .258, has 8 hits, 1 double, 0 homers, 1 RBI, and 1 Walk. When you draft Bengie Molina you are expecting a .280 average, 15 homers, and 70 RBI’s. His power is no where close to that and he seems like a bad option to have at catcher for now. Again add a catcher above if they are available.
Los Angeles Dodgers – Russell Martin
Russell Martin hasn’t showed promise of returning to his old form like in his first 3 seasons. Last season was his down year and this year seems like another one but worst. In his last 10 games he is batting .139, has 5 hits, 0 doubles, 0 homers, 2 RBI’s, 9 walks. He walks and scores runs good but he isn’t producing nor batting for average. He isn’t a person u’d want to drop but if he shows no progress soon he should be dropped unless you need walks and runs.

*Sorry For The Small Stats Will Try to Fix
Kansas City Royals – 2b/SS Mike Aviles
Not a run producing machine but Mike Aviles will bat for average. 2009 was a hyped year for Aviles after he broke out in 2008, his rookie season. He was battered by injuries all of 2009 and only played in 36 games. Now in 21 games Aviles has collected 29 hits in 85 at bats. In 2009 he collected 22 hits in 120 at bats so it seems he is back. Aviles has shown consistency with 9 of his 21 games resulting in multi-hit games. Pick him now and he will give you a good dose of singles, runs, average, and if you are in a strikeout league he barely strikeouts.
Los Angeles Angels – C Mike Napoli
The Power Stroke is coming alive for Mike Napoli as he has 4 homeruns and 8 RBI’s in his last 7 games. The last 2 seasons Napoli has looked good and potential for a breakout season. Those seasons combined he had 609 at bats, 40 homeruns, 105 RBI’s, 31 doubles, and had an average of .273. Not bad at catcher especially if you are looking for some homeruns and doubles. Most of his homeruns are solo shots or 2 run shots, which is reason for his low amount of RBI’s. Napoli right now is a top 10 option at catcher.
Toronto Blue Jays – 3b/OF José Bautista
If you don’t have him right now pick him up. Yea his average is .246 but that is far outweighed by the benefits. He is leading the MLB in homeruns with 15 and is tied for 4th in RBI’s with 39. He also has a good amount of runs tied for 6th in the MLB. He also gets you doubles with 10 this season and has 3 stolen bases which are not bad. See all the benefits far outweigh his mediocre average. A must pick up now!
New York Mets – OF Ángel Pagán
Ángel Pagán has been hot of late. Even if Carlos Beltrán comes back Pagán will most likely be in the lineup still because Francoeur continues to struggle at bat. Pagán power numbers aren’t that bad either with 3 homeruns and 20 RBI’s. What really adds to his fantasy value is his stolen bases, triples, runs, and average. Surprisingly Pagán has been quiet the base stealer and his triples make him a great fantasy option especially in leagues where that is a category. Since April 25th Pagán’s average has risen 68 points. A solid pick up right now!
San Diego Padres – SP/RP Clayton Richards
Clayton Richards has been very good in his last 3 starts. The Padres couldn’t of expected Richards to be this good for them. His last 3 starts have resulted in 3 wins each of them he went 7 innings. In 21 inning he only gave up 4 earned and none of them were homeruns. In 56 innings Richards has actually only let up 1 homerun all year which is pretty impressive. His era is good at 2.73 and has a good amount of strikeouts at 41. The only bad thing about him is his 22 walks and 1.36 whip. You would like to see less walks and a whip around 1.20. Otherwise Richards has been dominant and for the most part consistent.
New York Mets – RP Hisanori Takahaski
The Mets couldn’t ask for more from the 35 year old rookie Hisanori Takahaski. Recently he has taken the role as a starter and has done extremely well. What makes things better is he that he versed the Phillies who have been to the world series the last 2 years winning one and in his first matchup versed the defending world series champs the Yankees. He is 1-0 in his 2 starts and in 12 innings has given up no runs. He added 11 strikeouts and 1 walk in his 2 starts. Bring the whip down a bit and Takahaski could be a really good fantasy starter.
Baltimore Orioles – RP Will Ohman
In a holds league or just a regular I recommend picking up Ohman. In 15.2 innings he has yet to let up a run. His 17 strikeouts are a plus and 7 holds are very good. Now with Alfredo Simon out who was there closer look for Ohman to share time at closer and possibly take it over. His walks have gone down in May with only 3 this month so that shouldn’t be a problem. As a fantasy option you get a lower era, some strikeouts, holds, and maybe some saves.
Pittsburgh Pirates – RP Octavio Dotel
His era must stand out as a reason to stay away but it shouldn’t. Since the start of May he had a 10.61 era and now has lowered it by 5.02. In 10 innings in May Dotel has racked up 7 saves and 15 strikeouts. In those 10 innings Dotel has only given up 1 run and 3 hits. His 6 walks in the 10 innings needs to come down but overall has had a solid May. Dotel also added a win this month if that adds value to him for you to pickup now then good.
