In this week’s edition of 2019 Fantasy Baseball Week 13 Holds Targets, there’s a reunion with a previously suggested pitcher, and it feels so good.

An added bonus, we are promoting a streamer to a rest-of-season add. Take that Colonel Mustard, you’ll never be promoted to general because you’ll never figure out it was Professor Plum with the lead pipe in the billiard room.

Rest-Of-Season Options

Seth Lugo, New York Mets

Reunite, and it feels so good. Seth Lugo has been tearing it up since the last time he was featured, which why he should be added in all saves-and-holds leagues.

Since the last time I wrote about Lugo, he has recorded a 0.51 ERA, five holds, two wins, and 24 strikeouts.

His advanced metrics also improved during that duration, 2.22 FIP, 12.23 K/9, 100 left-on-base percentage, and 10.6 swing-and-strike percentage.

Here’s one more crazy stat about Seth Lugo, he only allowed one earned run since his last appearance in Week 4.

Week 13 is a great week to pick up Lugo since his upcoming opponents are the Phillies and Braves, two teams he has dominated this year. Zero hits and five strikeouts against Philadelphia, and one hit and zero earned runs allowed against Atlanta.

Chris Martin, Texas Rangers

I can no longer ignore Chris Martin, the Texas Ranger, but I can still overlook Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay, and all the crappy music they’ve forced into people’s ears.

Chris Martin (the pitcher) has been an effective weapon for the Rangers, 3.54 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 24 strikeouts.

His subpar ERA is missing leading because, in high leverage situations, Martin is untouchable. Hitters have a .219 AVG, .219 OBP, and .225 WOBA when facing Martin. In high leverage situations, he has 2.20 FIP and an O.75 WHIP.

When he inherits runners, he does not let them score (93.8 left-on-base percentage).

Martin is only Texas’ relief pitcher who can get left-handed hitters out. This boost his workload and his opportunities for holds.

Daniel Hudson, Toronto Blue Jays

Daniel Hudson is on a hot streak. In his last eight games, he failed to record a strikeout in just one game. Fantasy owners should expect that strikeout production with his upcoming games against the Royals and Yankees.

Hudson has only allowed five hits against the Yankees in his entire career. Yankee hitters have a .200 AVG and .245 WOBA against him for his career. If the Blues Jays can get a quick lead on the Yankees, it will provide Hudson with hold opportunities.

The Jays’ matchup with the Royals should also be close enough to put Hudson in high leverage situations to earn some holds too.

Alex Claudio, Milwaukee Brewers

Here is the lefty specialist for the week, and Alex Claudio will face two lefty-filled lineups against Seattle and Pittsburgh.

Claudio has been very effective against left-handed hitters in high leverage situations, 2.96 FIP, .198 AVG, and .227 WOBA.

I know Claudio has double-digit holds and would seem to be a rest-of-season add, but his ERA would kill teams. He is more helpful for Fantasy owners as a weekly streamer.
