2021 Fantasy Baseball Week 10 Drop List

on

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Baseball Week 10 Drop List.

We add three players to the 2021 Fantasy Baseball Week 10 Drop List. A slugger from the National League Central, a top prospect off to a slow start in his MLB career, and a first-baseman that started his 2021 on fire.

As always I review the performance of the last week’s drops at the bottom.

EUGENIO SUÁREZ, SS/3B, CINCINNATI REDS

Suárez appeared in the week 6 drop list and many of his problems from then are still around. His batting average has hardly improved-going from .130 to .160, 13 home runs are nice, but overall Suárez is not worth being rostered in 89 percent of ESPN and Yahoo leagues.

The strikeout rate is still running at a career-high 31.5 percent and his hard-hit rate has only improved 3 percent.

Suárez also improved his wRC+ from 44 to 64, well below the league average of 100. The feeling is the same now as it was four weeks ago.

Jarred Kelenic, OF, Seattle Mariners

Kelenic is one of the worst batters in Major League Baseball right now and is without a hit in 10 straight games. This brings his slash line to a dismal .096/.185/.193 on the season. It’s time to move on from this top prospect in redraft leagues, especially if the Mariners send him down to Triple-A.

Nate Lowe, 1B, Texas Rangers

Lowe had a really nice month of April when he batted .277/.360/.485 with six home runs, 22 RBI and 11 runs. He was one of the best Fantasy Baseball options and Fantasy Managers rushed to claim him off the waiver wire.

May has been a different story for Lowe. He slashed .220/.347/.320 with two home runs, eight RBI and 14 runs.

Lowe is a player fantasy managers should consider benching for now. He is still only 25 years old and starts full-time allowing the time to get back in gear. Let’s hope Lowe can turn this around quickly and get back to his April numbers.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

ANDREW MCCUTCHEN, OF, PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

McCutchen had served as the primary leadoff hitter up until May 30th. He moved to the sixth spot in the batting order and has recorded a hit in each game since, and only struck out three times.

This new confidence McCutchen is showing out of the sixth spot is enough to keep him this week, but we’ll check back next week to see if it continues.

MIGUEL SANÓ, 1B, MINNESOTA TWINS

Went seven games without a hit before hitting a home run on June 4th, and June 5th.

Sano is still a drop even after this two-game power surge, statistically, he has been below average in 2021.

WIL MYERS, OF, SAN DIEGO PADRES

At least one hit in nine of his last 11 games. Since May 27th he’s been batting really well, however, he is without a run or RBI in his last six games.

Myers can get on base but he still needs to score more runs and RBI to keep his trust with Fantasy Managers.

YASMANI GRANDAL, C, CHICAGO WHITE SOX

Three home runs this week shows Grandal has the power. He is also walking more than striking out in 2021. Grandal is a good ball player but is he producing enough, outside of his homers and walks, to stay on your team?

I’m keeping him on the drop list due to his poor .159 batting average on the season. Catcher is usually a thin position so I can see the case for keeping Grandal. However, some managers will find it better to have an extra roster spot to stream players than have a catcher.
