2017 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Rankings


Trade winds are swirling all around baseball and we have already seen a couple of trades. One between the two Chicago clubs and another between the Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics (more on this later). This time of year, due to the trades, the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Rankings will be fluctuating a lot, so be sure to come back often for updates.

Here are the big movers due to injury this week.

  • Not an injury related issue, but Starling Marte is back from his suspension this week (Tuesday).
  • Madison Bumgarner climbs back up the rankings after just one start. It wasn’t a great one, but the important thing is he threw 102 pitches and was healthy after.
  • A bunch of other pitchers bit the dust this past week. Joe Ross, Nate Karns and Michael Pineda are out for the season.
  • David Dahl has finally begun his rehab. He targeting a late July return.
  • Aaron Altherr landed on the DL with a hamstring injury.

Here are some players moving in the 2017 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Rankings due to their performance this season.

*I will be including trades over the next few weeks in this section

  • Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson get a boost after the trade to the Nats. Sounds like Madson will get the first crack at saves, but I would not be surprised if Doolittle sees some work too. This will suppress both player’s value.
  • More closer changes. Seung-Hwan Oh for the Cardinals appears to have lost the ninth inning role. In moves Trevor Rosenthal.
  • Scooter Gennett just keeps going, and going, and… well you get the point. He is one of the best hitters in baseball over the last couple of months.
  • Anthony Rendon finally gets the promotion up the rankings he deserves after crushing the baseball over the last couple of months.
  • Jose Quintana gets moved to the Cubs for some prospects. This does not rise his stock a lot, but he has been pitching better lately. A 12 K performance in his first outing helps.
  • After a few games of hope, Kevin Gausman disappointed once again to open the second half. It sounds like he might be demoted too. Yikes!

These rankings will be updated every Monday throughout the season. However, come back anytime to check out the rankings. The rankings themselves will be updated frequently when injuries, depth chart changes, prospect callups or other things happen to require an update to the rankings.

    Um, why would James Paxton fall 13 spots after two shutout starts? I can see if he started there and did not move up but falling?

      I am not as high on him, because health is always an issue. However this was an unintentional consequence of moving others up and down. I have tweaked the rankings this morning to adjust for new injuries and readjusted his ranking too. Thanks for pointing it out.
