2017 Rest-Of-The-Season Rankings: Cueto No!

Another week, another edition of the 2017 Rest-Of-The-Season Rankings.

First off, I want to apologize for the slightly late post this week. Our site was down for a while, but now that it is fixed the So-Called Fantasy Experts are ready to once again put out high-quality Fantasy content for our readers.

We have just entered August which means we have passed the non-waiver trade deadline. It was a pretty fun deadline, and there were plenty of players that went from teams who are out of contention to contenders.

These players, such as Sonny Gray, Yu Darvish and Melky Cabrera (just to name a few off of the top of my head) all received a nice boost to their Fantasy value now that they are playing for a better team. However, those are not the only reasons why a player’s stock could be up this week. In fact, only one of my three players in the “Stock Up” section were given their boost due to a trade, even though I could have chosen plenty more if I wanted to.

Besides that, I don’t believe there is much else to say about this week in baseball, so let’s get into the rankings.

2017 Rest-Of-The-Season Rankings

Stock Up

I give in. I had been keeping Iglesias off of these rankings for so long because the Reds have been struggling, and that has led to Iglesias not having a great amount of save opportunities. However, the Reds realized that so they found alternative ways to get him into the game, and he has been great. His 1.95 ERA with over 10 K/9 is useful for any Fantasy team, even if he only has 17 saves.

Domingo Santana, RF, Milwaukee Brewers

Domingo Santana has been one of the main reasons that the Brewers have been so unexpectedly good this season. The reason for him rising in this week’s rankings is not due to a recent spike in performance, but rather due to the fact that he is continuously proving that he can sustain this high level of performance through the second half of the season. His .285 batting average, 18 home

His .285 batting average, 18 home runs, and 57 RBI have made him one of this year’s biggest breakout stars, and he continues to fly under the radar in the eyes of all owners, except the ones who own him.

Jonathan Lucroy, C, Colorado Rockies

Alright, Jonathan, I am giving you one last chance for this year.

Jonathan Lucroy has been one of the best offensive catchers in the league for quite some time now. However, this year has been quite the opposite for him. He has struggled mightily all year, and after many weeks of advising people to stick with him, I pretty much gave up on the year.

That is until he was traded to the Colorado Rockies. Could a move to Coors Field be what he needs to turn it around? It certainly can’t hurt, and it also doesn’t hurt that he will now be playing in a stacked offensive lineup. If you have a chance to buy low on him, I would do it now.


Stock Down

Johnny Cueto, SP, San Francisco Giants

Johnny Cueto has officially made history by becoming the first player in the history of these rankings to be included in the “Stock Down” section for back-to-back weeks. I already mentioned in last week’s 2017 Rest-Of-The-Season Rankings that Cueto’s performance this year was well below his standards and that it was finally time to stop giving him the benefit of the doubt. Now you can add the fact that he experienced forearm tightness during a rehab start. Cueto no!
