Mike Soroka, SP, Atlanta Braves
After missing a month of baseball due to an injury, Soroka returned to shut down the New York Mets, posting 6.1 innings with 4 strikeouts. He's only appeared in a handful of games this season, but has a 2.57 ERA and 19 strikeouts over 21 innings. He'll take on the Blue Jays next week.
Adames, 22, presents fantasy owners with the opportunity to pick up a player who could finish the season as the every day shortstop for the Rays. Although he's hitting .231/.250/.385 in just seven games this season, Adames could finish the season with double digit home runs and stolen bases. He's worth a look in deeper leagues.
The Orioles are the worst team in baseball, but have several pieces that could be on the move come July. Britton is returning from an injury and is essentially auditioning for teams, as he'll pitch the later innings for Baltimore. Although he won't see a lot of "Save" opportunities with the Orioles, he could be moved to a contender very soon.
Joakim Soria, RP, Chicago White Sox
The White Sox will use Soria as their closer moving forward. He has 10 saves over 12 opportunities and has struck out 30 batters over 26 innings. However, the 34-year-old reliever hasn't been "lights out" - allowing 26 hits over those 26 innings along with 2 home runs and 5 walks. If he's available in your league, he's worth a shot for cheap saves.
