Dansby Swanson, Atlanta Braves - Dansby Swanson has begun to come alive a bit over the last week or so and went 2-for-4 with his third homer of the season Tuesday in Toronto. Swanson is now in the middle of an eight game hit streak and has multi-hit games in two straight. In the month of May we've seen him have a solid BABIP at .360 and his triple slash is .257/.391/.286 as he's been walking in 19% of his at bats for the month. As you can tell by the slugging percentage Swanson is hitting for no power at all but that really isn't his game as you hope maybe he can run into 10 homers over the course of the season. It's still not great where we are at, but we are seeing steps in the right direction
Ian Happ, Chicago Cubs - Ian Happ has become the latest in the Cubs' offensive embarrassment of riches as he launched his second homer of the season, while hitting cleanup, and while playing center field. Through the first three games of his career he's slashing .400/.538/1.100 and has already played in two different outfield spots. It's interesting to try and find a place for him once Jason Heyward returns from his DL stint but he's off to a hot enough start to keep him in fantasy lineups every day.
Zack Grienke, Arizona Diamondbacks - Zack Grienke ran into some trouble Tuesday, against the Mets of all teams, but was still able to pick up the win as the bullpen hung on to the lead. Grienke fell victim to the long ball as he gave up a pair of homers and now has surrendered at least one homer in four straight starts. One thing that's continued though this year is his ability to strike out batters and limit walks as he's fanning over 10 per nine this year with a sub-2.00 BB/9. He's rebounded terrifically this year after his down 2016 season in the desert.
Ty Blach, San Francisco Giants - Ty Blach turned in a terrific outing against the Dodgers as LA's woes continue against left handed pitching. Aside from a 8 ER 3.0 IP shellacking two starts ago he's gone at least 7.0 innings with two or fewer runs but he hasn't struck out more than two batters in any of those starts. In fact, Blach is hardly striking anyone out with a 2.86 K/9 this year. No that's not his ERA or FIP, that's his K/9. His FIP is 4.46 as he isn't getting an extraordinary amount of groundballs and isn't generating a crazy amount of soft contact so I really don't know how long this can last. I would sell high if you can.
Mike Foltynewicz, Atlanta Braves - DFS vs Toronto How do you make an already bad Toronto lineup even worse? Send them to a NL park and make the pitcher hit. Mike Foltynewicz makes for a high upside budget arm Wednesday in DFS against Toronto in Suntrust Park. Folty is coming off one of his best starts of the season tossing 6.0 innings allowing just one run. He always seems to be a big boom or bust guy and his Fanduel price reflects that appropriately.
