Max Muncy, 3B/1B/OF, Los Angeles Dodgers
If you play in a league that rewards for on-base percentage, Muncy is worth an add, especially with his multiple position eligibility. The 27-year-old utility man has 7 home runs, along with a .353 OBP. With injuries to the Dodgers happening every week, along with his versatility, Muncy is worth a look in deeper leagues.
The Mets have a crowded outfield situation, but when you're hitting .287/.431/.574 with 6 home runs and 4 stolen bases, your manager "should" find constant playing time for you. Nimmo is owned in less than 50% of leagues as of right now, but that is likely to change with his increased playing time.
After missing all of the 2017 season due to injury, Eovaldi made his 2018 debut in stunning fashion, striking out 4 hitters over 6 innings of no-hit ball against Oakland. Eovaldi made a strong impression during spring training, but missed the start of the season to "clean up" loose bodies in his elbow. Eovaldi will likely be limited in his first few innings back, but he's still a strike out machine.
Although closer Brad Ziegler
has blown one save this season in ten opportunities, he's been awful, posting a 7.83 ERA and allowing 4 home runs in 23 innings. The Marlins have decided to look elsewhere for ninth inning help, which includes Barraclough. Barraclough, 28, has a 1.48 ERA season and has struck out 27 hitters in 24.1 innings.
