Baseball season has proven to be nothing short of lackluster with competitive games and players. With competitive games comes competitive sports fantasy leagues which is why FBS is here; to provide you with up-to-date information for your daily fantasy baseball lineups!
Edinson Volquez, S, Cincinnati Reds
After starting his second start back from Tommy John surgery, Volquez surrendered six runs in 2 1/3 innings against the Nationals. His first start back was looking up, but like most pitchers, his games will most likely be inconsistent. You may want to keep him off of your fantasy baseball lineup in the mean time.
Tim Hudson, S, Atlanta Braves
This is the third time in five starts that Hudson has gone seven innings without allowing a single run, proving that he is a key player in any fantasy lineup. With a 10-5 record and a 2.47 ERA, Hudson continues to impress us with great numbers.
Brandon Phillips, 2B, Cincinnati Reds
Phillips continues to show the Reds that he doesn’t deserve a leadoff spot going 0-for-4 in the loss to the Nationals Thursday and hitting just .184 in 76 at-bats this month. With an OBP of .225, Phillip is going to need to step his game up to prove to his team that he is leadoff worthy. In the mean time, keep him off of your fantasy lineup.
Carlos Gonzalez, OF, Colorado Rockies
Gonzalez may miss Friday’s game against the Phillies due to a re-aggravated left index finger during Wednesday’s game. We won’t know whether or not he will play until batting practice Friday, so rather than take a risk, I’d skip out on Gonzalez as a choice for your fantasy lineup this week.
Alex Gonzalez, SS, Atlanta Braves
Gonzales went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI’s Thursday versus the Padres, and he’s hitting .370 through 27 at-bats, making him a good pick for your lineup. The Braves will continue to hope for more out of this shortstop after getting rid of Escobar, and so far, we’ve seen just that.
