  • Marcus Semien playing his last 40 games without so much attempting a stolen base seems like a cause for concern. Things are going so well for the Rangers offense that he’s remained a fine fantasy second baseman even while slumping over the last five weeks (it seems like that might be over now), but he’s unlikely to remain a top-20 or top-30 overall player if he’s not running. While the Rangers offense should remain strong, it’s not going to keep scoring six runs per game all year long.
  • With his penchant for playing his non-essentials every other day, the Royals’ Matt Quatraro has not been very fantasy friendly since taking over the managerial role. Samad Taylor is the latest player to get the Edward Olivares treatment, sitting two of the last four games even with Michael Massey on the shelf. I’m not confident that Taylor is a long-term regular, but he was playing great in Triple-A (.304/.409/.463 with 34 SB in 62 games) and he deserves a shot. Because of his incredible stolen base ability, he’d be interesting if the Royals would commit to him. They might just send him down when Massey comes off the IL, though.
