Week 9

Gordon Beckham, 3B, Atlanta Braves (CBS: 3 per cent owned, ESPN: 2 per cent): Last 15 days, 2 HR, 8 RBI, .311 BA.

Archie Bradley, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks (CBS: 20 per cent owned, ESPN: 6 per cent): Solid start today against the Padres. 7 IP, 4 hits, one walk, three earned runs and nine k’s. Nothing left to prove at Triple-A.

Alex Bregman, SS, Houston Astros (CBS: 26 per cent owned, ESPN: 3 per cent): 12 HR, 35 RBI, 33 runs scored, .429 OBP, .667 SLG, 3 stolen bases and to top it all off, 19 walks, 12 strikeouts. All accomplished in 138 at-bats. Get him promoted and quick.

Pat Dean, SP, Minnesota Twins (CBS: 3 per cent owned, ESPN: 1 per cent): In three of his first four starts he faced Toronto, Baltimore, and Detroit. Believe it or not, he survived and is sitting with a 3.43 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 21 IP.

Tim Lincecum, SP, Los Angeles Angels (CBS: 13 per cent owned, ESPN: 4 per cent): Why not? The rest couldn’t have hurt him and the Angels need starting pitching help desperately.

Adam Lind, 1B, Seattle Mariners (CBS: 26 per cent owned, ESPN: 3 per cent): Four homers and 13 RBI in past two weeks. He finally heard the Dae-ho Lee footsteps?

Whit Merrifield, OF, Kansas City Royals (CBS: 4 per cent owned, ESPN: 1 per cent): 2B eligibility could be coming as Infante has been brutal. Started there today. 12-for-32 past two weeks.

Logan Morrison, 1B, Tampa Bay Rays (CBS: 10 per cent owned, ESPN: 7 per cent): 11-for-25 in the past week. 1 HR, 5 RBI. He finally showed up.

Paula Orlando, OF, Kansas City Royals (CBS: 8 per cent owned, ESPN: 7 per cent): The injuries have opened up opportunities and Orlando looks to be one of the beneficiaries. He did steal 34 bases in 2014. 11-for-28 in the past week.

CC Sabathia, SP, New Yankees (CBS: 43 per cent owned, ESPN: 14 per cent): One earned run in his past three starts. Over those three starts, 21 K’s in 20 IP.

Matt Shoemaker, SP, Los Angeles Angels (CBS: 21 per cent owned, ESPN:  7 per cent): 23 strikeouts (15 2/3 IP) in his past two starts. Only two earned runs. Really??
