2019 Fantasy Baseball Week 9 Drop List


This week’s edition of the 2019 Fantasy Baseball Week 9 Drop List is split evenly between two positional players & two pitchers.

All of these players were worthwhile at some point this season, but things have turned for the worse. Whether it be poor play, other players returning to replace them or off the field issues, it is officially time to move on from the four listed below.

If you want to find out who to add in their place, check out this week’s Waiver Wire post.

Michael Wacha, SP, St.Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have sent Wacha to the pen for the foreseeable future.

This is not surprising after Wacha got shelled for seven runs in his last start, raising his ERA to 5.59.

With Wacha struggling, he can be safely dropped, as it is not a stretch to think he will remain in the pen for the rest of the year.

Ronny Rodriguez, IF, Detroit Tigers

Ronny Rodriguez is on a pretty bad skid, having gone hitless in six of his last seven games.

Now batting .231 on the season, Rodriguez has drastically cooled off & is playing himself out of a job.

Another thing to note, is Jordy Mercer is expected to be activated off the IL on Monday, seemingly taking the job back from Rodriguez.

Mike Leake, SP, Seattle Mariners

Mike Leake has now only won one game in his last seven starts, with a 3-6 record on the year.

During that stretch of seven games, he has allowed 26 ER and 11 HRS.

There is not much good that Leake offers fantasy owners right now.

Odubel Herrera, OF, Philadelphia Phillies

This one is tough to report on, and I will not attach a link due to the graphic details of the report, but Herrera has recently been arrested and placed on administrative leave by the MLB.

Things do not look good for Herrera, and a lengthy suspension seems obvious here.

Owners can certainly hold on to him and see how this plays out, but the MLB does not take domestic violence lightly and punishment seems likely.
