Niko Goodrum — With Jeimer Candelario on the DL, Goodwin has had an opportunity to play in the Tigers lineup and he’s hit well thus far. Nothing in his minor league history points to exceptional statistics, so he is nothing more than filler in the deepest of leagues.
Mark Reynolds — With Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Eaton out for the Nationals, Mark Reynolds has found his way back into their lineup. He still kills LHP, but he is not reliable and will eventually lose his job when all the Nationals players on the DL return to the lineup.
Mark Melancon — Melancon threw batting practice this week and will begin a rehab assignment shortly in the hopes of returning to the team in early June. It’s too early to tell if Melancon can return all the way back from injury and if he does, will the Giants even trust him as their closer? I think it’s worth a buck or two to stash him at the end of your bench just in case he returns to form.
Frannil Reyes — Reyes is going to get a chance to win an everyday OF job at least until Wil Myers returns in a month. He showed tons of power in the minor leagues so he could be a good source of power for Fantasy teams over the next month.
