  • FA Starting Pitcher #41
    No indication yet on where exactly Hill will wind up at this juncture or whether there’s any actual interest from teams. However, the 44-year-old left-hander appears set on returning for what would be his 20th season in the big leagues since 2005. He was largely ineffective late last year with a calamitous 8.23 ERA in 10 appearances (five starts, and five relief appearances) following a midseason trade to the Padres. Yet, there’s probably some appeal here for a contending franchise to bring him in as a low-risk dice roll to see if there’s anything left in the tank.
  • CWS Catcher #15
    Maldonado remains one of the better defensive catchers in baseball, despite his advanced age, but that doesn’t really matter for fantasy purposes where he’s been a complete non-factor for years. The 37-year-old backstop figures to have some appeal for a contender as a backup option given his defensive prowess, but he’s not going to have any sort of impact for fantasy managers, regardless of where he winds up next. According to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, it’ll be Chuckie Robinson coming up from Triple-A Charlotte to take his roster spot following the All-Star break.
  • CWS Center Fielder #13
    The deal is now official. With Yoán Moncada (adductor) due back at some point next month, and Lenyn Sosa heading to the minors, it seems like the White Sox are going to give Senzel some runway at second base coming out of the All-Star break. The former second-overall pick from the 2016 MLB Draft never quite lived up to those lofty expectations with Cincinnati and was cut loose earlier this month by the Nationals after posting a .663 OPS with seven homers and one steal in 64 games. The 29-year-old has undoubtedly underwhelmed to this point in his career, but he represents a worthwhile reclamation project for the White Sox over the next few months.
  • BOS Center Fielder #16
    Duran came off the bench to slingshot the American League ahead with a tape-measure 413-foot moonshot to right field off Reds ace Hunter Greene in the fifth inning, which was enough for him to earn him MVP Award honors. The 27-year-old outfielder’s metamorphosis into an upper-echelon fantasy contributor, tallying 47 extra-base hits, including 10 home runs, and 22 stolen bases through 95 games, has been a big reason why the Red Sox find themselves in the playoff race coming out of the All-Star break.
  • LAD Designated Hitter #17
    Ohtani connected on a center-cut heater from Red Sox starter Tanner Houck, launching a colossal 400-foot no-doubter to right field, putting the National League ahead in the early stages of the Midsummer Classic. The 30-year-old two-way superstar became the first Dodger to homer in the All-Star Game since Mike Piazza back in 1996. It’s yet another signature moment for his end-of-career highlight reel.
  • CLE Relief Pitcher #48
    Clase was summoned to protect a two-run lead in the final frame of the Midsummer Classic and needed just 13 pitches (11 strikes) to preserve the victory. The hard-throwing 26-year-old right-hander made quite a statement in his third straight All-Star Game appearance, striking out Pete Alonso to open the frame before retiring Elly De La Cruz on a ground out to second base. Padres rookie Jackson Merrill managed to get on-base with an infield single before he struck out Bryan Reynolds to slam the door.
  • OAK Relief Pitcher #19
    Miller’s flawless frame also included an eye-popping strikeout of Shohei Ohtani on a nasty 89 mph slider on the heels of a 101.8 mph fastball. He also delivered a sizzling 103.6 mph fastball, the fastest pitch in All-Star Game history in the Statcast era, prior to striking out Trea Turner. Fantasy managers are looking at arguably the best closer in baseball right now. The hard-throwing 25-year-old righty talked earlier this week about potentially returning to the starting rotation in the future, which would be a pretty significant development for his fantasy appeal.
  • PIT Starting Pitcher #30
    Skenes lived up to the astronomical hype with an impressive frame during his Midsummer Classic debut. The hard-throwing 22-year-old phenom, who fired seven hitless innings with 11 strikeouts in his final outing prior to the All-Star break, broke out his signature splinker to generate a rare ugly swing from Juan Soto and touched triple digits on multiple occasions. The only question left for fantasy managers to ask is whether he can come remotely close to sustaining this over the next few years.
  • 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.
