Daily Dr. Roto — April 19, 2017
The Night that Was
— Pirates OF Starling Marte is suspended 80 games for PED use. He will be out until mid-July. Adam Frazier will most likely take his place. Minor leaguer Austin Meadows is on the horizon, but he won’t come up until June after the Super Two deadline. Do not drop Marte! Hold him and hope he returns to give you a solid second half.
— Yankees SP Luis Severino was the ultimate post-hype sleeper this season, and I hope most of you took advantage of that knowledge and drafted him. If he is still available on your league’s waiver wire, grab him now.
— Rockies SS Trevor Story hit his second home run of the season. Don’t be discouraged by his slow start; I still expect big things from him.
— A’s SP Andrew Triggs has zero earned runs in over 17 innings pitched this season. Yes, he is good, but he is not THAT good. Be careful and don’t overspend on him in FAAB.
— With RP Huston Street on the 60-day DL, Angels RP Cam Bedrosian is a must-add in any league in which he is available.
— Indians OF Michael Brantley looks like he is fully recovered from his shoulder injury woes. I would love to trade for him now if I could still get him on the cheap from an unconvinced owner.
The Night that Will Be
Starters I like
- Mad Bum
- Dustin Pedroia
- Justin Turner (if he plays—Jake Lamb if he doesn’t)
