The NY Daily News lists 10 players that FantasyAlarm.com users should consider adding to their MLB lineup for the 2017 baseball season. Luis Perdomo, a pitcher for the Padres, has decreased his ERA down 4.92 (from 9.00 to 4.18), has only allowed one home run, and keeps a groundball rate at almost 70 percent. Despite his great numbers and even better improvements, only 20% of CBSsportsleagues.com leagues include users who own Perdomo.
Ben Gamel is currently OF for the Mariners who was recently called up from Triple A. Gamel’s stats have been hot since his re-entry in the majors, and include a .373 batting average with two homers, 11 RBI’s, and 5 games with multiple hits just over the past week.
Rhys Hoskins, a Phillies 1B, is a young up and comer with fantastic stats in minor leagues.
Ryan Schimpf is an inconsistent 2B in the Padres organization. Although his average is low – only .170 with a 31.7% strikeout rate – over half of his current hits are homers.
Eddie Butler, a Cubs pitcher, is not presented as the most exciting or promising player, with a very low strikeout rate despite his successes in Triple A.
A 2B for the Athletics, Jed Lowrie is favorably compared with Schimpf, as his consistency suggests he would be more profitable than Schimpf.
The Mets have thrust Hansel Robles into a prominent pitching position as Jeurys Familia’s shoulder clot worsens. Robles will play should Addison Reed struggle.
Kennys Vargas, a 1B/DH for the Twins, is considered the most promising of the players on the Daily News list, Vargas is a respectably consistent homer hitter.
Jose Urena is a middle of the road Marlins pitcher: his strikeout rates are low but he throws a blistering fastball.
Jorge Soler, Royals outfielder, maintains potential despite a 1 for 18 start.
