Raisel Iglesias- It was tough to understand what Raisel Iglesias could be when he got the call. So far, he has been absolutely fantastic. His 27% K Rate shows an elite level of strike out potential. His 7.2% BB Rate is completely acceptable for a player striking out as many batters as Iglesias. At this point, Iglesias is a must own player the rest of the season and he is only owned in about 50% of standard formats. For owners looking for that pitching boost heading into the playoffs, he is a must add.
Kris Bryant- The early results on Kris Bryant's rookie season have been slightly mixed. The power is obviously there with a .218 ISO and 22 home runs over the course of this season. Along with the power, Bryant has had a difficult time controlling his strikeouts. His 30.5% K Rate is the biggest weakness in his game at this point. It is depressing his batting average and holding back his almost limitless potential. I love Bryant's future, but in order for him to achieve the full potential of his MVP-type talent, he has to cut down on the strikeouts.
Michael Conforto- The Mets were desperate enough to jump start their future right now. The first couple weeks of Michael Conforto struggled with major league pitching and finding his rhythm. Luckily enough, the Mets stuck with Conforto through a difficult July. He has been dynamite since August 1st. He's hit .328 along with 5 home runs during that time period. He doesn't flash any real speed, but his power has developed nicely and his batting average has been a substantial asset to fantasy owners. The fact that he is owned in less than 10% of fantasy leagues is fairly shocking right now.
Nolan Arenado- Nolan Arenado has become a building block for both the Colorado Rockies and fantasy owners everywhere. His 33 home runs are leading the National League and good for top 10 in the major leagues. Arenado continues to be a dominate fly ball hitter and his .276 ISO is based largely on his ability to keep putting the ball in the air. At 24 years old, he is one of the elite fantasy options moving forward for years to come.
Aramis Ramirez- Aramis Ramirez has found a jolt of power as we move into the closing month of 2015. Ramirez has not hit for average for a while now, but he has a fairly solid power profile for teams in desperate need of power at the hot corner in the final month. He is a player that isn't owned in a majority of leagues because of the warts that come with his ownership, but his power potential over the last month of the season may be enough to justify being owned.
