Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740279 Sit - David Price Sit+-+David+Price Fantasy Baseball

The time has finally come for David Price to land on the “sit list.” I was extremely patient with him this season, mainly because I don’t have him on any of my fantasy teams. Also, I left him alone because Price was still getting a decent strikeout total. Now, the ERA (6.25) and WHIP (1.48) are just too high to overlook. Talk about a Cy Young hangover, last year he allowed one home run the entire month of September. This year, he’s only gone one start without allowing the long ball. It will be a “battle of the fantasy baseball headaches” when he faces fellow 2012 Cy Young Award winner, R.A. Dickey, in his next start. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31736041 Sit - Kris Medlen Sit+-+Kris+Medlen Fantasy Baseball

Remember when Kris Medlen was 10-1 with a 1.57 ERA and a 7.8 K/9 last year? That was awesome. Normally, I have reservations benching a pitcher who is probable for two starts in one week but this time I have no problem with that decision. In six starts this year, Medlen has recorded one win and it was against the Marlins. Last year, he allowed six or more hits one time the entire season. This year, he’s allowed fewer than six hits only once. Next Medlen heads to Cincinnati and San Francisco, his ERA is close to four on the road. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740274 Sit - A.J. Pierzynski Sit+-+A.J.+Pierzynski Fantasy Baseball

When he moved from one hitter-friendly park (U.S. Cellular Field) to another (Rangers Ballpark) fantasy owners were willing to use a late-round pick on the backstop. However, it is slowly looking like last year’s power numbers (27 HR, 77 RBI) were just an anomaly. Currently, Pierzynski is battling an oblique injury which could factor in to his lack of production. He has gone 37 straight at-bats without a home run and now heads to two National League parks (Chicago and Milwaukee) where he may sit because of the removal of the DH. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740275 Sit - Will Middlebrooks Sit+-+Will+Middlebrooks Fantasy Baseball

First the good news, Will Middlebrooks has yet to go longer than three games without a hit. However, his career batting average has dropped from .288, at the conclusion of 2012, to .195. Last week, the Red Sox travelled to Toronto and Texas and Middlebrooks only tallied three hits. With the availability of Nolan Arenado, and even Chris Johnson, at third base Middlebrooks can find himself on the bench. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740276 Sit - Jimmy Rollins Sit+-+Jimmy+Rollins Fantasy Baseball

Unfortunately, Jimmy Rollins didn’t appreciate the Marlins pitchers as much as I did. In the four-game series against Miami, J-Roll could only muster two hits. Add that to the two-game set in Cleveland and you still get two total hits (.111 AVG). Next, Rollins’ team travels to San Francisco to face Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, and Barry Zito. After that, the road trip continues to Arizona where Patrick Corbin leads the list of probables. Basically, don’t look for Rollins’ numbers to improve any time soon. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740278 Start - Jose Fernandez Start+-+Jose+Fernandez Fantasy Baseball

Just like his Miami teammate, don’t let Jose Fernandez’s win-loss record determine his fate. In his first year in the majors, Fernandez has had a bad outing or two but his upside has tremendous potential. For example, in his last outing, Fernandez shutout Philly and allowed one hit while K-ing nine batters in seven innings of work. Next, his probable opponent is Matt Magill and the LA Dodgers. Hopefully, that’s another win in Fernandez’s future. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740272 Start - Kevin Slowey Start+-+Kevin+Slowey Fantasy Baseball

I know that Kevin Slowey just pitched the other day and will only start in one game this week, but I’m just giving you a heads-up on his situation. Last week, Slowey started twice (Mets and Phillies) and allowed one earned run while punching out 15 hitters. Currently, he is only owned in 9.8 percent of FOXSports.com leagues. Slowey is sporting an ERA under two (1.81) and WHIP under one (0.94). His win on Sunday was his first in almost three years and with his not-so-scary Marlins’ offense backing him don’t expect a lot more, but Slowey will prove helpful in the other pitching categories. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740273 Start - Nolan Arenado Start+-+Nolan+Arenado Fantasy Baseball

While FOXSports.com fantasy baseball owners, in non-dynasty leagues, where waiting on Wil Myers (owned in 7.6 percent) and Jurickson Profar (2.5 percent), Nolan Arenado was added to the Rockies roster and contributed almost immediately. Though he went hitless in game one, the next day Arenado went 3-6 with a home run and two RBI. In his first full week in “the bigs,” Arenado hit three homers and batted .357. Now, he is owned in 17.3 percent of leagues and that number will only increase as the time passes. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740277 Start - Michael Saunders Start+-+Michael+Saunders Fantasy Baseball

What shoulder injury? In his first game back from the DL, Michael Saunders went yard. In the last six days, he hit three home runs and six RBI. Though he doesn’t have a decent OBP, Saunders does leadoff for Seattle and bats in front of the newly-consistent Kyle Seager which provides Saunders with the privilege to see better pitches. If Dustin Ackley knew how to contribute, the Mariners might have a solid batting order. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 6 31740271 Start - Ryan Raburn Start+-+Ryan+Raburn Fantasy Baseball

As a Toledo native, I’m very familiar with Ryan Raburn’s work. From 2005-2007 he was a staple in the Mud Hens lineup and a fan-favorite among the locals. Now, he’s playing in a contract-year in a platoon-heavy Indians outfield (when doesn’t Cleveland have a handful of OFs?) and Raburn is producing. Last week, he went an insane 13-22 (.591) with four homers and nine RBI. He’ll stay in the Indians lineup during this hot streak and he should be in yours, too…and don’t listen to those bitter Tigers fans. – Adam Meyer
