Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903161 Sit - Dan Haren Sit+-+Dan+Haren Fantasy Baseball

The roller coaster of a season that is Dan Haren’s fantasy stock is currently plummeting to the ground at an alarming rate. There was a stretch this season when he went five consecutive outings with a quality start. Now, he’s allowed 16 total earned runs in his last three performances. Next, Haren is slated to pitch against the New York Mets. This season, he owns an 8.56 ERA and has allowed 13 earned runs in 13.2 innings when facing the Mets. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903160 Sit - Brian McCann Sit+-+Brian+McCann Fantasy Baseball

Ever since Brian McCann returned to the Braves’ lineup, it’s been fun to watch him and Evan Gattis go back-and-forth in the “who’s better than whom” batting contest. While McCann had a stranglehold on that title, it seems as though Gattis is making a solid push for the finish. Last week, McCann batted .143 (2-14) with one RBI. Atlanta may have their division all but won in the real league, but owners still need productivity out of you, McCann. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903158 Sit - Asdrubal Cabrera Sit+-+Asdrubal+Cabrera Fantasy Baseball

While I’m well aware that Cleveland has the easiest schedule for the remainder of the regular season, I’m not sure that they do. Last week, Asdrubal Cabrera batted .053 (1-19) and was given Sunday night off to rest. Much like us fantasy owners, Tito Francona can’t afford to play hitters by name-alone. It’s a “what-have-you-done-for-me-lately” type of world right now and this shortstop hasn’t done much. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903162 Sit - Aaron Hill Sit+-+Aaron+Hill Fantasy Baseball

For a second baseman to hit close to .300 in a season is normally all I’m looking for, but last week Aaron Hill’s 3-23 (.130) performance with one lone RBI sent me looking for a fill-in. I don’t care how useful a player has been over the course of the fantasy regular season, you can’t be slumping come fantasy playoff time. Next, his Diamondbacks face the red-hot Dodgers and the probables of Nolasco, Volquez, and Ryu. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903159 Sit - Carlos Santana Sit+-+Carlos+Santana Fantasy Baseball

September has always been Carlos Santana’s most productive month. He has 11 career homers in the ninth month and is five RBI away from the month’s high, currently it’s 36 RBI in August. Yet, he’s off to a horrific start. This month, Santana has hit .143 (3-21) with zero home runs and three RBI. This week, he travels to U.S. Cellular Field, where he’s 11-56 (.196). For a power-hitting first baseman, slash catcher, Santana is not coming through in clutch fantasy baseball times. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903156 Start - Yusmeiro Petit Start+-+Yusmeiro+Petit Fantasy Baseball

Being one out away from a perfect game isn’t the only reason why Yusmeiro Petit made the cut, but it didn’t hurt him either. In four starts this season, Petit hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs in a game and has struck out a minimum of six batters per outing. Next, he faces Colorado at home. On August 27th, Petit went six innings, allowing two runs, and punched out six Rockies for his first win of the season. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903155 Start - Billy Hamilton Start+-+Billy+Hamilton Fantasy Baseball

You can call him a one-trick-pony all you want, but the guy can swipe a bag like nobody’s business. Billy Hamilton may not have registered a hit in his Major League Baseball career, but he has four stolen bases. In your typical fantasy baseball head-to-head league, every category is crucial. If you can add Hamilton without hurting your team as he eats up a roster spot, I would highly suggest placing him on the utility position. Four extra stolen bases could prove to be the difference. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31902461 Start - Wilson Ramos Start+-+Wilson+Ramos Fantasy Baseball

Catchers can be some of the streakiest hitters in baseball, probably due to the days off they get for playing such a tough defensive position. Wilson Ramos, though his batting average is only .250 last week, has been on fire. He hit a homer on August 30th, September 3rd, and September 8th. That’s a home run every fourth game for Ramos. Also, don’t forget about his nine RBI in the last seven games. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31902462 Start - Christian Yelich Start+-+Christian+Yelich Fantasy Baseball

On September 4th at 11:26 a.m. (EST) I tweeted, “Still playing fantasy baseball? Christian Yelich is batting 3rd for Miami today. He's 11/23 (.478) with 1 HR and 2 SBs last week. #Marlins.” If we reflect back over the past seven days, those numbers have improved: 12-25 (.480) with a solo shot, four RBI, and three stolen bases. Now that we’re in the nitty-gritty of a long fantasy season, it pays off to find a player who can contribute on all phases on the offensive side of the stat sheet. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Starts and Sits: Week 23 31903154 Start - Will Middlebrooks Start+-+Will+Middlebrooks Fantasy Baseball

The young infielder played well enough to send veteran Kevin Youkilis packing (to Chicago, at the time), yet Will Middlebrooks struggled when the 2013 season started. With Boston’s magic number getting less and less, Middlebrooks is catching fire at the right time and could factor immensely when the postseason begins. For your possible fantasy baseball playoff push, consider adding the third baseman to your squad. Last week, Middlebrooks batted .440 (11-25) with three home runs and eight RBI. – Adam Meyer
