If these players are available, they might be worth a look, depending on the format of your league.

If these players are available, they might be worth a look, depending on the format of your league.

As the season winds down, the free-agent pool is not exactly full of contributors. We discussed viable options like Gregor Blanco and Derek Dietrich last week, and they remain solid options for 12-team-mixed-leaguers if they are available. Franklin Gutierrez and Eugenio Suarez were discussed last week for deeper leagues and they both continue to produce as the season winds down, moving themselves into the picture in 12-team mixed leagues as well. These four players are all recommended if you need to fill holes over the rest of the regular fantasy season.

MIXED LEAGUES

Gerardo Parra, OF, Milwaukee Brewers
Khris Davis went on the disabled list on May 31st, opening up everyday at-bats for Parra, who had been a valuable fourth outfielder in real life but an empty batting average in fantasy. Parra made the most of his opportunity, hitting .329/.371/.514 with six home runs and five steals while Davis was on the shelf. Further bolstering his fantasy value, Parra has been occupying the leadoff spot against righties—a split he’s had success with throughout his career—and has scored 24 runs in the past 37 games. The total package adds up to a top-five outfielder over the past month. That his ownership rates only got to 66 percent in CBS leagues and 54 percent at ESPN despite the tear tells me owners are likely to be shy with Parra now that Davis is back in the fold. Defensive metrics rate Parra less favorably than they once did, but he can play all three outfield positions and figures to be moved before the trade deadline, when he should reclaim an everyday role. There is already speculation about Kansas City as a potential landing spot, with Alex Gordon set to miss the next two months. If Parra is somehow still on your wire or an owner drops him because of questions about where the at-bats will come from, make the claim.
