Throughout the last week, I have had to cut players that I was extremely high on heading into the season. I could regret this in a few weeks, but we're in the middle of June and I can't afford to hold on to players who are not producing.
I bring this up because I'm sure there are many players like this on your team. Unfortunately, we have to make hard choices and moving on from guys may be the best decision.
Philadelphia Phillies Infielder/Outfielder Scott Kingery --
We mentioned Kingery as a waiver-wire target
at the end of May
. However, he is still owned in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo! Sports leagues despite batting .315 with seven home runs and two stolen bases. Kingery is eligible at third base, shortstop and outfield, which is critical in fantasy baseball.
Miami Marlins Starting Pitcher Pablo Lopez -- The ERA isn't great (it sits at 4.26), but the right-hander has allowed one or no earned runs in four of his last five starts. Lopez also has struck out seven hitters in three of his last five starts. The WHIP is great at 1.12 and if it wasn't for the start in which he allowed 10 earned runs, the ERA would be extremely low. If needing starting pitching help, Lopez could be a nice addition.
Toronto Blue Jays Relievers Joe Biagini and Daniel Hudson -- Closer Ken Giles recently landed on the injured list which has opened up the ninth inning for Biagini or Hudson. It appears Biagini is the favorite, but it should be noted that Hudson earned the save June 12. I wouldn't break the bank for either or drop an important player, but if needing saves, both are worth adding with the lean toward Biagini.
