Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31894663 Sit - Huroki Kuroda Sit+-+Huroki+Kuroda Fantasy Baseball

The head-to-head league that I "commish" over starts postseason play this week and yet I'm highly considering the idea of benching Hiroki Kuroda in round one...and he's set to pitch in two games this week! In back-to-back starts, Kuroda has allowed seven earned runs against Tampa Bay and five runs at Toronto. His only saving grace for me is that Kuroda is 7-2 with a 1.54 ERA at home, and both of his games this week are at Yankee Stadium. If that's not enough for you, I wouldn't blame you sitting him. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893792 Sit - Todd Frazier Sit+-+Todd+Frazier Fantasy Baseball

It's been a rough sophomore season for Todd Frazier in 2013. Last week didn't help either as he went 3-20 (.150) with three RBI. The future doesn't look much brighter since his Reds face the Cardinals and Dodgers at home this week. Against St. Louis, Frazier is 3-49 (.061) with four RBI this season. When he faces Los Angeles, Frazier hits .154 (2-13) with zero RBI. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31894664 Sit - Wil Myers Sit+-+Wil+Myers Fantasy Baseball

The rookie has now been on both sides of the Start/Sit gallery this year. On August 9th, Wil Myers was hitting .340 and has slowly dropped day-by-day to a current average of .284. Don't expect that stat to improve when he steps into the batters box against Jered Weaver, Hisashi Iwakuma, and Felix Hernandez this week. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893790 Sit - Jose Altuve Sit+-+Jose+Altuve Fantasy Baseball

While I appreciate the three-hit performance Sunday night from Jose Altuve, I drafted him for his wheels and yet he hasn't stolen a base since August 16th. What gives?! Also, prior to his Sunday output, Altuve was batting .138 (4-29) the last seven days and .200 in the month of August. If the SBs don't return soon, he will find himself on the free agent list. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893791 Sit - Matt Wieters Sit+-+Matt+Wieters Fantasy Baseball

Owners of Matt Wieters should be begging me to place him on the "sit list," because whenever I do, he seems to bounce back. Last week, the Orioles backstop batted .056 (1-18) with as many RBI as hits. In the upcoming days, Wieters will face the Indians and White Sox. Say what you want about those two teams' 2013 season, but last month Chicago had the sixth-best team ERA and Cleveland had the 12th. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31894662 Start - Mark Buehrle Start+-+Mark+Buehrle Fantasy Baseball

As much as I've criticized the Blue Jays' rotation this season, I was actually rooting for them to succeed. As a fan of the Tribe, I'm very familiar with the workings of Mark Buehrle. The ability to field his position the way Buehrle can has always impressed me. Now, his pitching is finally returning to the dominating level I'm used to seeing. In Buehrle's last four outings, he's averaged one earned run and just over five strikeouts per game. - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893784 Start - Omar Infante Start+-+Omar+Infante Fantasy Baseball

You'll be hard-pressed to find another second baseman with the type of value Omar Infante can provide for a fantasy baseball team. Last week, Infante managed to park three pitches, drive in nine, and nearly bat .300. His Tigers start a nine-game road trip in Boston on Monday and Infante is hitting .309 away from Detroit this season and .352 after the All-Star break. - Adam Meyer

Rick Osentoski - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/02/090213-FANTASY-MLB-Start-Sit-OB-G4_20130902131518985_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/02/090213-FANTASY-MLB-Start-Sit-OB-G4_20130902131518985_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893786 Start - Avisail Garcia Start+-+Avisail+Garcia Fantasy Baseball

I'm sure Avisail Garcia was sad to see August end. Last month, he hit .354 with two home runs and 11 RBI. A majority of that success came in the final week, where mini Miggy went 10-23 (.435) with six RBI and the two previously mentioned homers. Next, his White Sox play seven-straight road games. While his RBI stats are much better at home (15 home, six road), Garcia's batting average is higher on the road (.300 away to .293 home). - Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31894661 Start - Eric Young, Jr. Start+-+Eric+Young%2C+Jr. Fantasy Baseball

Eric Young, Jr. was mainly recognized by fantasy baseball connoisseurs as only a source for stolen bases. Now, the speedster is proving that he has a bat, too. Last week, Lil E.Y. went 8-23 (.348) with five RBI, along with five SBs. In August, Young produced 10 RBI and was a perfect 11-for-11 on the base paths. - Adam Meyer

Joy R. Absalon - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/02/090213-FANTASY-MLB-Start-Sit-OB-G2_20130902131518983_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/09/02/090213-FANTASY-MLB-Start-Sit-OB-G2_20130902131518983_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 22 31893785 Start - Dustin Ackley Start+-+Dustin+Ackley Fantasy Baseball

I'm content with a second baseman that can score runs and have a better-than-most batting average. Dustin Ackley is doing that AND driving in runs for Seattle. Last week, Ackley batted .385 (10-26) with one home run and seven RBI. Though he's gone hitless in three of the past four games, I still think he's a worthy of a roster spot on your fantasy baseball squad. - Adam Meyer
