Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725159 Sit - Alexi Ogando Sit+-+Alexi+Ogando Fantasy Baseball

After his first two starts, it appeared Alexi Ogando was going to have a successful 2013 season: 2-0, 0.77 ERA, and 12 strikeouts. Since then, he’s had four more starts and zero wins. It’s not like Ogando is facing some big hitters either, his last three appearances were against the Cubs, Angels, and Twins. Next, he’ll take the mound when Boston comes into town. The Red Sox have scored the third-most runs this season (128). With Ogando only making one start this week, I have no problem suggesting that he remains on your bench until he displays improvement. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725157 Sit - Brett Anderson Sit+-+Brett+Anderson Fantasy Baseball

There was rumblings that Brett Anderson might land on the disabled list and that Daniel Straily would fill in for the second time this season. That didn’t happen, but Anderson owners (and Straily owners) probably wish it did. Instead, he made his scheduled start against Boston and allowed six earned runs in four innings. Now, Anderson is sporting a 1-4 record with an ERA over seven (7.23) and a WHIP close to two (1.77). I hope it won’t take an injury to get Straily into the Oakland rotation, but if it does I hope they just go ahead and make one up. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725156 Sit - Brandon McCarthy Sit+-+Brandon+McCarthy Fantasy Baseball

First of all, let me preface this post by saying Brandon McCarthy is probably one of the most courageous players in baseball. To take a line drive off the dome and still come back to work takes guts. In fact, because of his story and his solid spring numbers I drafted McCarthy on a team (or two) of my own. However, it’s time to make a roster move. In his five starts this season he hasn’t allowed fewer than three earned runs in an outing. The seven strikeouts in his last start was a positive, but the now 7.48 ERA is too much to overlook. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725155 Sit - Paul Konerko Sit+-+Paul+Konerko Fantasy Baseball

I don’t want to upset the “fantasy baseball powers that be” by dissing the most consistent and under-rated player in the game, but I think Paul Konerko has hit the wall. Even as I write this he homers against the Rays. Before that, Konerko went nine games without a long ball and only produced one RBI in the last eight games. Last year, his RBI total dipped below 100 (75 RBI) for the first time in three years. Now, his batting average is starting to tank. The career .282 hitter is batting .232 on the season. He could turn this thing around, but I think you should sit Konerko until he does. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725154 Sit - Norichika Aoki Sit+-+Norichika+Aoki Fantasy Baseball

This hasn’t been a good stretch for Norichika Aoki offensively. April 8th, he was batting .419 with one HR and four RBI. From that day forward, Aoki’s brought in one RBI and it was because of a solo home run. Also, he hasn’t had a multi-hit game during that time period. Subsequently, his batting average has fallen to .253. As the team’s leadoff hitter, Aoki will get the ABs to break out of this pattern. But, until then you may want to look for other outfielder options. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725153 Start - Kyle Kendrick Start+-+Kyle+Kendrick Fantasy Baseball

Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, and Roy Halladay make the big bucks, but this is the Phillies starting pitcher to watch this season. In his last three outings, Kyle Kendrick as allowed two earned runs and struck out 15 batters. So far, he’s won two games and whittled his ERA down to 2.41. Kendrick is probable against a team he owns, the Miami Marlins. In 14 career starts, he’s 10-2 with a 3.71 ERA. If you’re worried about Giancarlo Stanton causing damage, you shouldn’t. The Marlins power-hitting outfielder is 3-18 (.167) and has struck out seven times when facing Kendrick. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725152 Start - Yuniesky Betancourt Start+-+Yuniesky+Betancourt Fantasy Baseball

Before Sunday’s game Yuniesky Betancourt had a six-game hitting streak. Within that stint, he drove in eight runs and hit two homers. Betancourt probably won’t be a guy you’ll have on your roster for an extended period of time, but ride the wave while he’s putting up decent fantasy numbers. This week, his club returns home for back-to-back series. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725151 Start - Jean Segura Start+-+Jean+Segura Fantasy Baseball

With all the injuries Milwaukee has suffered this season, they needed a surprise like Jean Segura to happen. As of April 28th, Segura leads the active Brewers (Aramis Ramirez excluded) with a .349 average. It helps that he bats in front of the dangerous Ryan Braun. Also, besides his fascinating ability to steal first base, Segura has swiped six bags in the last nine games. Middle infielders are a great source of stolen bases and runs scored. So, when you can get a guy that can not only do that but also boost your batting average you need to start them daily. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31725150 Start - Kyle Seager Start+-+Kyle+Seager Fantasy Baseball

Other than the pitching of Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, and Tom Wilhelmsen there hasn’t been anything to cheer about in Seattle. Kyle Seager is slowly becoming a bright spot on the Mariners offense. Before a six game road trip to the state of Texas, he was hitting .217 with no home runs and five RBI. Since traveling to the Lone Star state, he’s increased his batting average around .300, belted three home runs (non prior), and produced seven RBI. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 5 31722391 Start - Nate McLouth Start+-+Nate+McLouth Fantasy Baseball

Owned in less than 12 percent of FOXSports.com leagues Nate McLouth had an outstanding week. In 21 at-bats, he recorded nine hits (.429), one home run, and six RBI. Prior to that run, McLouth was batting .244 with one lone RBI and zero homers. Sunday provided a drastic upgrade to his season average, rising from .319 to .351 in one day. Plus, he’s a leadoff hitter so he gets more ABs and opportunities to produce stats. – Adam Meyer
