  • LAD Left Fielder #37
    Witt came up just a few feet short on his final swing of going to a swing off. MLB’s new format tonight helped prevent any standout performances by adding a clock and a pitch limit, and Alec Bohm’s 21-homer showing as the very first batter in the first round actually ended up as the biggest number of the night. Still, it made for a close competition, and everything was very much in doubt until the very end. Hernández barely survived the semis after Bohm faltered on his final few swings and then edged Witt in the shorter final round.
  • COL Third Baseman
    Condon put up spectacular numbers in his two seasons with the Bulldogs, and finished 2024 with 37 homers and a 1.565 OPS that was buoyed by a 1.009 slugging percentage. Obviously the power is the calling card for the 21-year-old -- he turns 22 in April -- but he does have the swing to suggest he can hit for average as well without a huge amount of swing-and-miss in his profile. He won’t provide many stolen bases, but whether he ends up at third, a corner-outfield spot or even first base, he’s an absolute must-have in fantasy formats, especially with the added benefit of his new home park.
  • CIN Starting Pitcher
    Burns was considered one of the top prep prospects in the 2021 draft but chose to go the college route, and after two solid seasons at Tennessee, he blossomed at Wake Forest in his junior campaign with a 2.70 ERA and a whopping 191 strikeouts over 100 2/3 innings in his 16 starts. His arsenal is impressive; starting with a fastball that can get up to 102 mph and quite often finishing with a wipeout slider that might be the best pitch of any player in the class. Between those two pitches is an above-average change and a quality curve, and while he’s not a control artist, he should throw enough strikes to be a starter. Burns has a nice combination of floor and ceiling, and it’s not hard to see him becoming a fantasy ace someday.
  • CLE Second Baseman
    Not a huge surprise. A product of Australia, made an immediate impact at Oregon State and finished his junior campaign with a slash of .407/.568/.911 with 28 homers and 16 stolen bases. The left-handed hitting second baseman can make hard contact to all parts of the field with many believing he can finish with a 70-grade (on the 20-80 scouting scale) hit tool, and there’s above-average power and plus speed for good measure. He’s not considered a great defender, but he should be able to stick at second base and obviously the bat will play there. Bazzana has the talent to help in all categories, and he could be playing in the majors by this point next year.
  • NYY Relief Pitcher #35
    Who else is dizzy right now? After entering the bottom of the ninth with a 5-3 lead, Holmes allowed a leadoff single to Kyle Stowers and went on to load the bases with walks to Ryan O’Hearn and Adley Rutschman before an error from Anthony Volpe allowed a run to score. Cedric Mullins then poked a ball to left field, which landed over the head of Alex Verdugo after he stumbled. Given the stakes, it’s hard to think of a more demoralizing loss. The Yankees will have a few days to dwell on the lost opportunity during the All-Star break. This wasn’t all Holmes’ fault, but he’s not exactly in the circle of trust right now.
  • BAL Shortstop #2
    Henderson took Carlos Rodon deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. With that blast, he’s already equaled his home run total from his entire rookie season. It’s scary to think about what his ceiling could be. Next up for Henderson is an appointment in the Home Run Derby on Monday in Arlington, Texas.
  • NYM Starting Pitcher #34
    Senga threw 66 pitches, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out three. The next step hasn’t been decided, but it’s possible the Mets could deem him ready for his season debut coming out of the All-Star break. The club will move to a six-man rotation upon his return.
  • MIN Shortstop #4
    The issue was confirmed after going for an MRI. Correa dealt with plantar fasciitis in his left foot last season, but this current issue isn’t believed to be as severe. The All-Star break comes at a good time for him.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher
    His exact debut isn’t yet known, but he’s expected to join a rotation that is in tatters due to a host of injuries. The 25-year-old Ryan has had some injuries issues of his own this season, missing two months with a shoulder issue, but he’s put up a strong 2.21 ERA and 27/7 K/BB ratio in seven appearances since returning to action, including five starts in Triple-A. Ryan has emerged as one of the Dodgers’ best prospects, but he’s a bit of a wild card for fantasy purposes. Still, he appears to be worth a stash at the moment.
  • ARI Center Fielder #7
    Carroll is attempting to wrap up a disastrous first half on a high note with his first multi-homer performance since June 9, 2023. He plated an early run with a second-inning sacrifice fly before walloping a three-run homer in the seventh inning and launching a two-run blast in the ensuing frame. The 23-year-old fantasy star, who put together a 25-homer, 54-steal campaign last year in his full-season debut, has just five round-trippers and 18 steals in 93 games leading into next week’s All-Star break. Fantasy managers have been waiting on the power breakthrough from Carroll for months at this juncture, so hopefully this is the type of game that will get him back on track entering the second half.
