2016 Fantasy Baseball Top-250 Rankings: Giancarlo Stanton Blues

It has actually been a fairly uneventful week in baseball. Well at least compared to most.

Of course that doesn’t mean we had nothing going on to affect the rankings significantly. Just that we did not have as much going on as usual.

Giancarlo Stanton once again is going to end the season the DL. This year it is due to a groin injury.

Look call him unlucky, unfortunate, whatever. I just know I will likely never draft this guy. Year after year we deal with major injuries with him. Worst of all they have been season ending, therefore he misses Fantasy Playoffs or that final stretch run for those of you in Roto leagues.

I’m not going to deny his talent; he truly is a great player. But he just can’t seem to catch a break.

Either way he is out of the Fantasy Baseball Top-250 Rankings completely. This also affects the other Marlin players, as now they will not have arguably one of the best hitters in baseball to help them. So we see guys like

Craig Kimbrel makes his return back to the rankings, after a quick scare that he would go back on the DL. I guess I reacted a little too quickly and knocked him out of the Top-250 when he walked four batters and was pulled due his surgically repaired knee being sore.

He has come back strong, closing out three games already.

The other big news is the New York Yankees young players playing very, very well.

Gary Sanchez, who should have catcher eligibility in all leagues very soon, has played phenomenal. He is a must pick up.

Another player you should keep a close eye on is Aaron Judge. Both have cracked the rankings and deservedly so.
