Fantasy Baseball Stock Market Report: Cabrera UP, Figgins DOWN

Whose stock is rising and whose is falling? Here is a list of players going in opposite directions as May rolls into June. Among the names discussed: Asdrubal Cabrera, Eric Young Jr., and Chone Figgins.

Stock Up

asdrubal-cabrera-fantasyAsdrubal Cabrera – SS – CLE

As you read this, he is currently the top ranked shortstop overall in fantasy and has 10 homers. Time to sell him right now before the floor falls out. His stock couldn’t be any higher.

Eric Young Jr. – 2B – COL

Look for EY2 to be your second MI right now. He has the ability to rack up steals in a hurry while trying to jump start the Colorado offense. The Rockies designated Jose Lopez for assignment and over time they will experiment with EY2 in the outfield since Dexter Fowler hasn’t been the ideal lead-off man. Remember he will hit in front of Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki most of the time and should score a ton of runs leading off the top of the order.

Michael Morse – 1B/OF – WASH

A great breakout candidate at first base for the rest of the year. While Adam LaRoche sits on the DL with a shoulder injury look for Michael to continue to hit for power. He’s going to see regular at-bats since not many other batters in the Nationals lineup are hitting.

Jonathan Lucroy – C – MIL

Laid a text book, pinch-hit, walk-off suicide squeeze bunt on Saturday with the bases loaded. Say that 10 times fast while he’s sitting as the 8th best catcher right now in fantasy baseball. The best hitter at the bottom of the Brewers line-up will strike out a bunch but enjoy the cheap power if you lost Buster Posey for the year. After a home stand where the Brewers went 8-1, look for the Brewers bats to stay hot.

Stock Down

Chone Figgins – 2B/3B – SEA

Over the past two weeks Chone is 6-48 with 2 runs, 0 RBI’s, and 0 SB’s, batting a dismal .125. He’s droppable in most leagues. Cut bait now and you could always pick him up down the road if he figures it out, which is unlikely.

Edinson Volquez – SP – CIN

Was sent to Triple-A after his 1st inning woes and 1.667 WHIP to start season. Safe to drop in all leagues.

Gordon Beckham – 2B – CHW

CT Scan and X-rays revealed no facial fractures after he was hit just below his left eye this week. His season has been disappointing so far but don’t drop him just yet. I think he’ll still turn it around as he was starting to show signs of life this past week going 8-22 in the last 10 days.

Buster Posey – C – SF

Out for the year with ankle and leg injuries after taking the hard hit from Scott Cousins. Keep on your DL if you have room but safe to drop in one-year leagues.


  1. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better!

    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I’ll send this
    post to him. Pretty sure he will have a very good read.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s weblog link on your page at suitable place and
    other person will also do same in support of you.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this
    board and I find It really useful & it helped me out a lot.
    I hope to give something back and aid others like you aided

  5. Hi there, always i used to check blog posts
    here in the early hours in the daylight, because i like to gain knowledge of more and more.

  6. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you ought to write more about this subject matter, it
    might not be a taboo matter but generally
    people do not discuss these subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  8. My family members always say that I am killing my time here
    at net, however I know I am getting knowledge every day by
    reading such pleasant content.

  9. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
