Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798860 Sit - Starlin Castro Sit+-+Starlin+Castro Fantasy Baseball

Saving the worst for last, Starlin Castro hit a terrible 1-18 (.056) last week. To make matters worse (yes, it’s possible), Dale Sveum moved Castro down to the seven spot in the batting order. This month, Castro only has one hit. Cincinnati is next on the schedule and Castro is 7-40 (.175) against the Redlegs. Basically, any free agent in your league’s pool at shortstop is a better start than Castro. But, if you want specifics: Willie Bloomquist, Stephen Drew, and Daniel Descalso. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798861 Sit - Alex Gordon Sit+-+Alex+Gordon Fantasy Baseball

George Brett may have an impact on the Royals hitters, but Alex Gordon isn’t getting the memos. Last week, Gordon went 2-19 (.105) with one RBI. Kansas City hosts Detroit for a three-game series and the Tigers have the fourth-best opposing batting average (.219) the past week. There are two options to replace Gordon in the “Start” portion of this gallery. Also, Mike Carp could be a batter to use until Gordon clicks. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798859 Sit - Ryan Zimmerman Sit+-+Ryan+Zimmerman Fantasy Baseball

Whenever a highly-owned third baseman or first baseman goes an entire week without an RBI there’s a good chance they’ll land on the “sit list.” Ryan Zimmerman hasn’t recorded an RBI since his three home run performance on May 29. Jose Iglesias, Nolan Arenado, and Anthony Rendon are currently better options for your fantasy baseball hot corner. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798862 Sit - Zack Greinke Sit+-+Zack+Greinke Fantasy Baseball

There could be a lot of offense on Tuesday when Los Angeles hosts Arizona. I previously mentioned benching Ian Kennedy and now you should also sit his opposing pitcher, Zack Greinke. Owners will be shocked to see Greinke on this list because he struck out seven while allowing no earned runs against Atlanta in his last start. However, Greinke is 0-3 in five career starts against Arizona with a 7.90 ERA. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31802583 Sit - Ian Kennedy Sit+-+Ian+Kennedy Fantasy Baseball

Remember when Ian Kennedy struck out almost 200 hitters and had a 2.88 ERA in 2011? That was awesome. Last year, he ended the season with a 4.02 ERA while striking out 187 batters. In 2013, I don’t care what his punch out total is, because the 5.72 ERA makes me sick. Allowing 10 earned runs to St. Louis was the final straw for my fantasy baseball team. Next, Kennedy is set to face the Dodgers who already roughed him up for six earned runs this season. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798855 Start - Dillon Gee Start+-+Dillon+Gee Fantasy Baseball

While NHL fans equate beards to luck and postseason play, facial hair seemed to have the reverse effect on Dillon Gee. After a poor outing against Atlanta boosted Gee’s ERA to 6.34, a clean-shaven Mets pitcher took the hill against the Yankees and struck out 12 while only allowing one earned run. Next, Gee took down the Nats and lowered his ERA to 5.20. Gee is probable against St. Louis on Wednesday. Fear the anti-beard! – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798863 Start - Eric Stults Start+-+Eric+Stults Fantasy Baseball

Contrary to what this gallery suggests, I do not have a full tattoo sleeve dedicated to the San Diego Padres. Eric Stults is the third member of the Friars to make the start list. Last week, Stults started in two games, gathering a 1.93 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. Currently, Stults is owned in 7.6 percent of FOXSports.com leagues. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798857 Start - Carlos Quentin Start+-+Carlos+Quentin Fantasy Baseball

I’m always scouring the waiver wire for players I can use for my UTL spot and power-hitting outfielders generally top my list. Carlos Quentin just finished a seven day stretch batting 10-22 (.455) with two homers and four RBI. Unfortunately, Quentin’s stats at home are atrocious this season: 9-59 (.153) with one home run, but that still doesn’t deter me from taking the flier. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798856 Start - Jarrod Saltalamacchia Start+-+Jarrod+Saltalamacchia Fantasy Baseball

If you didn’t spend a high draft pick on your fantasy baseball catcher, you’re probably picking up the hot bats on a weekly basis. Currently, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is the guy to own. Last week, he batted .412 (7-17) with three homers and seven RBI. Granted, Salty’s two home runs on Sunday contributed greatly to his stat line, but he’s still hitting .360 in the month of June. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 11 31798858 Start - Kyle Blanks Start+-+Kyle+Blanks Fantasy Baseball

At 6’6” and 260+ lbs, Kyle Blanks is hard to miss. Yet, the grande Padre is only owned in 5 percent of FOXSports.com fantasy baseball leagues. I know a player’s physical dimensions has nothing to do with their productivity, but his 11-27 (.407) week with three home runs and seven RBI are the important numbers for this piece. Yonder Alonso’s broken hand has also opened the door for Blanks to get some playing time at first base. – Adam Meyer
