Fantasy 15 Podcast: Fantasy Baseball Advice for June 23
The Minnesota Twins’ Ervin Santana is schedule to be activated July 4, just in time for a July 5 debut against the Kansas City Royals. Santana was a very productive pitcher the past two seasons, starting 32 games in 2013 with a 3.24 ERA, followed by 31 starts last year with a 3.95 ERA and an 8.2 K/9 rate. Owned in less than five percent of FOX Fantasy Baseball leagues, John Halpin and D.J. Foster make their recommendations for whether or not the 32-year-old is worth the roster stash.
Another pitcher making his season debut is the New York Yankees’ Ivan Nova. Does the right-hander deserve a spot on your roster?
Halpin and Foster also discuss Freddie Freeman’s DL stint. Who can fill the void at first base until his return? They debate a number of players with ownership rates below 50 percent, including Brandon Belt, Adam Lind, Chris Colabello, Adam LaRoche, Mitch Moreland, Ben Paulsen and Garrett Jones.
In daily fantasy, the discussion touches on such players as Chris Archer, Madison Bumgarner, Stephen Strasburg, Chi Chi Gonzalez, David Peralta and Derek Norris.
