Rest of Season Adds

Brandon Workman, Boston Red Sox

Now that it’s official that the reunion of Craig Kimbrel and the Red Sox is not happening, it’s safe to say Boston’s bullpen is set in stone. Brandon Workman is the reliever you want from the bullpen.

Workman has already recorded career high with 11 holds. At his current rate, he should record 25-plus holds.

Week 11 is the week to pick up Workman since he is facing Texas and Baltimore. In May, The Orioles allowed their divisional rivals to record 10 holds, and the Rangers allowed their opponents to record 17 holds.

There’s a small possibility that he might play his way into the closer considering Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes are on short leashes.

Pedro Baez, Los Angeles Dodgers

Pedro Baez is a reliable option for Fantasy owners out of the Dodgers’ bullpen. His stat line suggests he is okay, 3.29 ERA, 2.89 FIP 25 strikeouts, and 1.12 WHIP. Batters have a .175 batting average when facing Baez.

If you can’t tell I’m not too excited about Baez, but he is looking like he’s returning to his 2017 form when he recorded 23 holds, and that kind of production needs to be owned in saves-and-holds leagues.

Warning about Baez, when runners are in scoring position he has a 5.25 FIP, that’s concerning for a setup guy. Until Dylan Floro takes away Baez’s hold opportunities, he can produce for Fantasy owners.

Week 11 Streaming Options

Justin Anderson, Los Angeles Angels

Justin Anderson’s 5.14 ERA and 1.52 WHIP suggest a player who isn’t in control of his pitches, but his 3.05 FIP suggests he is in control. Which storyline is real for Anderson? The answer is both.

In low leverage situation, Anderson is out of control, but in high leverage situations, he has laser focus. Batters have a .133 OBP, .128 WOBA when facing Anderson in high leverage situations. When the heat is on, Anderson doesn’t shy away from the pressure, he has a 0.79 FIP, and a 13.50 K/9 rate.

He is a must-start in the Battle of Los Angeles.

Hector Rondon, Houston Astros

Ryan Pressly is leaving minimal hold opportunities for the other Houston relievers but their Week 11 matchups against the Brewers and Blue Jays will require some extra help. Hector Rondon will be who they turn to for help.

Rondon has a mind-boggling stat line, 2.86 ERA, 2.79 FIP, and he has an 84 left-on-base percentage. In high leverage conditions, he is unstoppable.

If Ryan Pressly gets injured, Rondon would be next line to be the setup man and would become a rest-of-season add, but for right now he’s a great streaming option.

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
