Ryan Schimpf (2B-SD): Ryan Schimpf went 1-for-3 with two runs and one walk as he continues to log regular playing time for the Padres. While Schimpf has displayed questionable contact and bat-to-ball skills throughout his MiLB career, he has done one thing consistently well: hit for power. However, while 45% hard-contact rate is elite, his batted-ball speed and homerun distance numbers suggest his 24% HR/FB rate is inflated. As long as you temper expectation about the batting average, I still see Schimpf delivering solid fantasy value for deep-leaguers down the stretch. Where there is full-time playing time, there is value.
Andrew Cashner (SP-SD): Andrew Cashner allowed one earned run on three hits in 5 and 2/3 innings while striking out eight, but the Padres' pen let him down. His 5.05 ERA/4.73 xFIP is largely due to two horrific starts; in his other 13 starts, he has allowed 3 earned runs or fewer. While he'll likely be traded and deliver solid real-life value to his new team, his fantasy value is limited by his 17% K-rate/7% swinging-strike rate. Add to this his struggles on the road during the past two seasons, and you have a streaming option at best in standard mixed leagues.
Julio Urias (SP-LAD): Julio Urias allowed one earned run on five hits and struck out four, but was pulled after four innings and 77 pitches. The Dodgers will continue to turn to Urias with Clayton Kershaw likely finished for the season. The teenager has held his own in the Bigs, posting a 48:17 K:BB ratio in 40 innings. He has been quite unfortunate with a .367 BABIP, especially given his flyball tendencies. Earning W's and QS's will be difficult for Urias, but he should provide solid ratios down the stretch. If they want to preserve him for the playoffs, the Dodgers may work in Jose De Leon, who has been dealing at AAA. Watch closely.
Mike Foltynewicz (SP-ATL): Mike Foltynewicz allowed three earned runs and nine baserunners in 5 and 2/3 innings while striking out five, but the Rockies prevailed. While he has been extremely inconsistent for the better part of 2016, Folty has flashed high potential that should put him on fantasy radars. The keys for him are maintaining his 6% BB-rate (he walked five last night) and continuing to improve his groundball rate (which is now up to 41%). All of the underling stats indicate a young pitcher with stuff learning how to pitch. With an offseason of rest to fix those born spurs, Folty could be a huge sleeper for keeper leagues.
Trea Turner (2B/SS-WAS): Trea Turner's price still sits at $2700 for his prime matchup against Luis Perdomo in Washington, screaming buy. After stealing his 3rd base yesterday (a steal of home no-less), Turner will look to keep it going against a man who has allowed a .399 wOBA to righties and a .420 OBP. Turner hit leadoff yesterday and should find himself there again. Enjoy the price before it skyrockets.
