Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791496 Sit - Tim Lincecum Sit+-+Tim+Lincecum Fantasy Baseball

So, there’s this pitcher that is owned in 77 percent of FOXSports.com leagues and he posts a 5.12 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. Guess who. Tim Lincecum has allowed 15 earned runs in his last three starts. In his last 10 starts, Lincecum has allowed fewer than four earned runs just three times. Next, he is slated to face Toronto, a team Lincecum is 0-1 against and bolsters an enormous 17.18 ERA. Sit’em. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791498 Sit - Dan Uggla Sit+-+Dan+Uggla Fantasy Baseball

“One hit? That’s all we got? One #@$%& hit?!”

 

Yes, Dan Uggla only managed to get one hit in seven days of work for Atlanta (1-17). It’s hard to imagine Uggla’s .177 average could get even worse, but at home he is batting a mere .169. Add that to his stat line against his next opponent, Pittsburgh, and his average drops even more (.143). Ugg. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791499 Sit - Todd Frazier Sit+-+Todd+Frazier Fantasy Baseball

I’m a Todd Frazier fan and I think he will be great in Cincinnati, but right now he’s earned a benching. Third base, like first base, is supposed to bring high RBI totals and decent home run numbers; however Frazier has only tallied two RBI in his last eight games and hasn’t hit a home run since April 24th. Currently, Matt Dominguez, Daniel Descalso, and Yan Gomes are better options for your hot corner. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791497 Sit - Starling Marte Sit+-+Starling+Marte Fantasy Baseball

Sell! Sell! Sell! At one point, Starling Marte possessed a .336 batting average (May 11th) with five home runs and 17 RBI. Since that game, Marte’s average has fallen to a mortal .287 (June 3rd) and has only added one more RBI to his total. Next, the Pirates play the Braves who have held Marte to one hit in 11 ABs (.091) with no homers or RBI. If there is a Pittsburgh fan in your league or a Marte believer, I’d advise you make a move now. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791500 Sit - Jason Heyward Sit+-+Jason+Heyward Fantasy Baseball

With zero hits in 14 at-bats last week, Jason Heyward was a no-brainer for the “sit list.” The .142 batting average will only drop further when Atlanta hosts Pittsburgh. Against the Pirates, Heyward is 1-11 (.091) in his career. After that series, his Braves travel to Los Angeles to play the Dodgers. In 42 career ABs at Dodger Stadium, Heyward is batting .119 and has yet to go yard. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791491 Start - Oakland SPs Start+-+Oakland+SPs Fantasy Baseball

More specifically, Bartolo Colon and Dan Straily are the two pitchers to insert into your weekly fantasy rotations. Colon has gone back-to-back starts without allowing an earned run and will now head to Milwaukee where he gets to face pitchers instead of DHs. In his career, Colon is 2-1 in five starts against the Brewers. Straily started off shaky in 2013 but has since recorded three-straight starts with one earned run or less. Next, he is the probable starter against the White Sox. Straily just faced the south siders and tallied eight strikeouts while only allowing one run. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791492 Start - Ryan Doumit Start+-+Ryan+Doumit Fantasy Baseball

In the Head-to-Head Thread, posted every Friday (cough*plug*cough), I mentioned how owners should pick-up Ryan Doumit to improve their RBI stats and he did not disappoint. In the last seven days, the Thunder Doum (we gotta get that name to stick) is batting .300 with 11 RBI, three homers, two doubles, and a triple. Ahead is a three-game series against Kansas City and Doumit will face three probable pitchers that he has a combined .318 batting average against, including 4-11 (.364) versus Luis Mendoza on Tuesday. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791494 Start - Marcell Ozuna Start+-+Marcell+Ozuna Fantasy Baseball

Owned in only 6 percent of FOXSports.com leagues, Marcell Ozuna is a rookie who is flourishing in his opportunities as an everyday player in the Major Leagues. Ozuna is the only player on the Marlins roster batting over .300 (with at least 10 ABs). On Monday, Miami travels to Philadelphia for a three-game set and Ozuna could be in line for an even better week. Against the Phillies, he is batting .429 (12-28) and has his only big league home run off of Cole Hamels (Wednesday’s probably pitcher). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791493 Start - Brian Dozier Start+-+Brian+Dozier Fantasy Baseball

Sporting a seven-game hitting streak, Brian Dozier sure enjoyed the home cooking as he hit his second and third homer of the season. With the waves of success for middle infielders constantly changing, it is now time to try out this Minnesota second baseman. Dozier has only struck out twice in the past eight games and has raised his average from .197 to .230. On the horizon the Twins host Kansas City, a team set on a 1,000 innings pledge from their starting pitchers. In the last week, Royals pitchers allowed the second-highest batting average to their opponents (.280). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 10 31791495 Start - Jonathan Lucroy Start+-+Jonathan+Lucroy Fantasy Baseball

It was a great week for the Milwaukee backstop: 12-28 (.429), 3 HR, and 9 RBI. Jonathan Lucroy’s 5-5 performance against Philly on Friday propelled him into the start/sit gallery almost immediately. In a matter of two games, Lucroy was able to double his 2013 home run total from three to six. Also, in the three-game series against the Phillies, he drove in seven and was able to raise his batting average from .229 to .259. – Adam Meyer
