P- Jose Fernandez (vs. Atlanta Braves): $13,700. Fernandez has been lethal on the mound recently. In his last 10 games, he owns a 2.25 ERA, with 91 strikeouts in 64 innings pitched. Jose will be facing one of the worst offenses in baseball, so this should be a great matchup for daily fantasy.
P- Sonny Gray (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $6,600. Gray pitched incredibly well in his last start until the sixth inning, which he surrendered five funs. In his two starts prior to his last starts (since returning from the DL), he gave up only three runs on 12.2 innings pitched. Over the last seven days, the Brewers’ offense ranks in the bottom third in runs, batting average, OBP, and slugging, so hopefully Gray can take advantage of this struggling offense in his home park.

The 2016 MLB Draft was completed last week, so now it is time to take a look at the impact these rookies will have on fantasy baseball. Keep in mind that these rankings don’t take into account their ETA, but rather their long-term impact. Depending on when you are looking to compete, these rankings could change for you, so pay attention to the estimated time of arrival (ETA) that is stated. If you have any questions about this article or the player, please tweet me @dynasty_digest.
- Jason Groome (Boston Red Sox; LHP; ETA- 2020): Jason Groome was drafted 12th overall by the Boston Red Sox. Many people considered Groome a top-3 prospect, but he slid down the board due to multiple reasons. There has been rumor that Groome might not sign unless he receives a signing bonus that a top-5 draft pick would make, but it’s looking like the Red Sox will have enough money left over to give Groome the payday he wants. If he does sign, Groome will become part of an already dominant Boston Red Sox minor league system. Luckily for the Red Sox, Groome has frontline starter potential and could be an elite option in fantasy baseball at his prime. He stands 6’6 and 220 lbs, so he has the physical projectability, but he also has three above average to plus pitches that he can throw for strikes, which is saying a lot for a kid who is only 17 years old.

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the Mid-Summer Classic in 2016 by having Ron Burgundy be front and center at Petco Park. Hand him a microphone, and let him address the stands by saying “Stay Classy San Diego” . He couldn’t really say what he said at the lookout point in Anchorman “something about the meaning of San Diego”, but it would be awesome if he said ‘drink it up, it always goes down smooth.’
In a world where we have already seen a ton of cross promotion with celebrities and sporting events, this would be ideal. Will Ferrell (the man who plays Ron Burgundy) already suited up for 10 different teams in 2015 Spring Training, and toted the position of 10 different spots in the lineup, so this is a total no-brainer.
Burgundy is about as 100% sure thing there is for marketing campaigns. In the year following the Dodge Durango commercials featuring him, sales escalated 410% for the vehicle.
Let him throw out the 1st pitch, do interviews during the Home Run Derby, or help Chris Berman out with some strong color commentary. Heck. even bring the whole gang from Anchorman Channel 4 News team, but at least have him there. So as a fan of the character and actor, and for the betterment of humanity and baseball community, make this happen San Diego!
Outside of their current five-game winning streak, the rebuilding year of 2016 has been awfully hard on the Atlanta Braves. What would make it sting a little less is finding legitimate trade value on the big-league roster – outside of Julio Teheran and Freddie Freeman, of course.
When Atlanta traded away Shelby Miller to the Arizona Diamondbacks for a king’s ransom over the winter, multiple teams immediately asked about Ender Inciarte. Not only was he a good outfielder with some speed and coming off a solid 2015 (.303/.338/.408, six homers, 45 RBI, 73 runs scored), one would assume he had no space in the Braves’ rebuild.
Those teams are probably right – it’s likely just a matter of time before Inciarte is traded away for more young talent. Him missing about a month with a hamstring injury and putting up a cumulative line of .234/.303/.317 through 167 at-bats this year probably doesn’t help his trade value very much, but it shouldn’t matter.
He showed exactly how valuable he is in the matter of just two innings during a weekend series against the New York Mets at Citi Field. He was a force throughout the three-game set, slashing .308/.357/.462 during the sweep, but it was what he did late on Saturday night that really caught my eye.

Daily Matchups for 6/20/2016
I am thrilled for Cleveland and their fans, who finally got to experience a championship.
I am reminded of how 2004 felt as a Red Sox fan. And guess what? With more than a decade past that moment, I can tell you sports have become MORE fun without the question “will I ever experience happiness”?
It is a well deserved celebration episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
