Just to be clear, the following players are far from the worst traded players. I’m focusing on the guys that are going down in value. Some might be having great seasons (for example, Brandon Druri) but have the larger down arrows attached to them.
1. Raisel Iglesias (ATL): Simply, Iglesias will back down kenley jansen. With Jansen unable to play back-to-back games and his proneness to injury, Iglesias (4.04 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 12.1 K/9), Iglesias should remain on the list in deeper formats.
two. Lou Trivino (New York): Triviño had turned his season around with a 3.18 ERA, 10.6 K/9 and 1.53 WHIP since June 17, but he will just be another arm in the Yankees’ bullpen. Easy fall.
3. Pentecost Merrifield/Santiago Spinal (HILL): While Merrifield will provide the team with an injection of talent, one of these two will have to try to stay awake on the bench. While Merrifield’s bat has been a disappointment (.643 OPS), he continues to provide a decent amount of steals (15 SB). On the other hand, Espinal has been a pleasant surprise (.263 AVG, 6 HR, 5 HR) in providing consistent production.
I could keep both for a week to see how playing time works out, but I guess Merrifield will be the only one to stay on the list because of his stolen bases.
Four. John Duran/Emilio Pagan/Tyler Duffy (MIN): With Jorge Lopez Getting the save last night, he appears to be the closer, but I expect Duran to rack up some since he’s been a top-10 reliever this season (2.11 ERA, 11.3 K/9, 0.96).
5. yuli gurriel/Trey Mancini/Michael Brantley (NEW): If everyone recovers, one of these three will have to sit out every game. Jordan Alvarez going to start in DH or OF. None of the three can play central.
As for talent, here are the projected OPS for the rest of the season from the Trio Depth Chart.
Name: PAHO Project
Very close. I would take a chance on Mancini of the three as he could cover more positions.
6. harrison bader (New York): From what I can tell, Bader will be either a defensive replacement or a pinch runner. Fantasy worthless at this point.
7. Matt Vierling/brandon swamp(PHI): With the addition of Brandon Marsh, Vierling’s full-time at-bats ended in center field. After delving into their divisions, they should form a field platoon. Here are his career OPS against pitches with different hands.
Name: vsLHP, vRHP
Quartet: .760, .633
Swamp: .537, .698
Neither is close to being an average hitter, but the combination gets them there. The division of time removes a part of its fantasy value.
8. Brandon Druri/Jurickson Profar/will myers (SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY): I don’t know how playing time will turn out between these three. Ideally, the Padres would just bench Myers and let the other two play, but it’s hard to say at this point.
Also, Fernando Tatis Jr. must be out of the IL soon and then Ha Seong Kim it has no permanent starting position. I’m sure injuries and performance could clear things up, but it’s pretty muddy right now.
9. Andre Pallante/dakota hudson/Jack Flaherty/Matthew Liberatore/steven matz (STL): The Cardinals bolstered their starting corps with Joseph Quintana Y jordan montgomery. The pairing has been respectable this season with Montgomery in 42nd best K%-BB% and Jose Quintana in 51st (min 100 IP). Both are comparable to mikola miles (46) and Adam Wainwright (54th).
Having these four solid arms means just another starter in the mix. I’m sure the Cardinals want it to be Flaherty eventually, so everyone else will be fighting for scraps.
eleven brad hand/Seranthony Dominguez/corey knebel (FI): With the addition of david robertson, the chances of this trio to accumulate save games have been diluted. He could stop Dominguez to see if he can vulture enough Saves, but immediately move past the other two.
12 Tyler Naquin/canha brand (NYM): I thought Naquin would stay on the strong side of a pack with Canha and keep most of his fantasy value, but last night against a righty, Naquin sat out. Now I think the pair could be closer to a 50/50 playing time split, thus destroying the fantasy values of both. In addition, it will be difficult for either of them to take time out of the DH of Daniel Vögelbach Y Darin reputation 러프.
While Naquin has struggled with injuries this year (COVID, quads), he performed as expected with 7 HRs, 3 SBs and a .249 average. Canha has put up similar numbers at 7 HR, 2 SB and a .270 average.
Both are likely to be drops in most formats.
