Fantasy Baseball: Week 13 Weekend Roundup

Catch up on the latest Fantasy Baseball happenings from this past weekend so you build the foresight necessary to DOMINATE the upcoming week ahead!


  • If you know your job is being threatened by someone else, it can light a fire under some people. It certainly was the smelling salt to get Keon Broxton going. The Brewers outfielder was likely on the precipice of losing significant playing time or being sent down to the minors when Lewis Brinson was called up.
  • Instead, Broxton made sure he’s going to stay in the lineup. Broxton had three hits, homered, drove in three and stole a base Sunday. He has 13 home runs and 13 stolen bases. Seven of his home runs have come in the last 15 games. Brinson was sent to Triple-A Sunday.
  • Kenley Jansen walked his first batter of the season on Sunday, but still got five outs to get his 17th save. He has a 0.83 ERA and a 0.55 WHIP and a 52:1 K:BB ratio.
  • Cody Bellinger went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBIs Sunday. He is batting .274 with 24 home runs and 55 RBIs in 57 games. He has six home runs in the last nine games.
  • Corey Kluber has dominated since returning from the DL. He struck out 13 and allowed two unearned runs, three hits and two walks in a no-decision against the Twins. He reached double-digits in strikeouts in three straight games and has a 3.24 ERA with a 93:19 K:BB ratio in 72.1 innings.
  • Ervin Santana threw six scoreless innings and allowed nine hits, no walks and struck out seven in a win over the Indians. He is 10-4 with a 2.80 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.
  • Lance McCullers returned from the DL Saturday and allowed one earned run, four hits, no walks and struck out eight in five innings for the win. He threw 76 pitches after missing two weeks with a back injury. He is 7-1 with a 2.53 ERA.
  • After a slump, Jacob deGrom dominated for the third consecutive start. He went eight innings and allowed four hits, one walk, one run and struck out eight in a win over the Giants. He is 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.

  • Jason Vargas picked up his 11th win on Saturday. He pitched seven innings and allowed eight hits, two runs, no walks and struck out two. He is 11-3 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.13 WHIP.
  • Carlos Gomez has been sizzling since returning from the DL. He hit a homer, scored two runs and stole a base Saturday. He is batting .262 with ten home runs, 29 RBIs, and six steals.
  • A lot of catchers have disappointed in 2017, but Gary Sanchez has lived up to the hype. He hit his 13th homer Sunday and is batting .298 with .560 slugging percentage in 168 at-bats. He missed most of April.
  • Shin-Soo Choo hit his 12th homer and has 39 RBIs.
  • Travis Shaw hit his 15th homer Sunday. Think the Red Sox could use him?
  • Sonny Gray pitched seven innings and allowed one earned run, four hits, walked one and struck out seven to get a win.
  • Michael Pineda is back to his inconsistent ways. He allowed six hits, seven runs, and a walk in four innings Sunday. He allowed three home runs, and his ERA is 4.12. He has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his last five starts.
  • Santiago Casilla allowed a run Sunday but picked up his 13th save. He has a 4.28 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Sean Doolittle pitched a scoreless eighth.
  • Trea Turner went 5-for-5 with four runs and two RBIs Saturday. Michael Taylor went 4-for-5 with two home runs and three RBIs.
  • Joe Ross pitched seven innings and allowed one run, six hits, one walk, and struck out five.
  • Homer Bailey made his season debut against the Nationals Saturday and was crushed. He lasted 1.2 innings and allowed eight runs, six hits, and three walks.
  • Aaron Judge hit his 26th home run Saturday. Judge went 2-for-3 with two runs, one RBI and two walks Sunday.
  • Jay Bruce went 2-for-6 with a homer and three RBIs Sunday and is batting .270 with 20 home runs and 52 RBIs.
  • Michael Conforto left Sunday’s game after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch. X-rays were negative, and it’s a contusion.

  • Zach Davies threw seven scoreless innings and allowed four hits, one walk and struck out none. He has a 4.98 ERA.
  • Just when Julio Teheran was starting to show some signs of consistency, he got hit hard by the Brewers at home. He allowed seven runs and seven hits in three innings and has a 5.30 ERA.
  • Trey Mancini homered on Saturday and Sunday and has 14 home runs. He is batting .321.
  • Jonathan Schoop hit his 15th homer and is batting .298.
