MLB Pickups of the Day for July 17

  • Christian Encarnacion-Strand

    We are getting into week 16 here in the fantasy baseball season. Last week I was on fire and recommended a few guys who are paying dividends if you scooped them up off free agency. I highlighted names such as Mickey Moniak and Jarren Duran. This week we have a new group of players that we are going to get into! It features a lot of up-and-coming youth! that I have mentioned on my Twitter over the past week (@Andrew_FBB)

    Christian Encarnacion-Strand

    It finally happened! Christian Encarnacion-Strand is being promoted to the big-league club! In 48 games for AAA, he has slashed .331 with 20 home runs, 62 RBIs, and a 69:33 K:BB. He is widely available in most leagues as people began dropping him assuming we wouldn’t see him in the Majors until September. Encarnacion-Strand offers a really intriguing power-hit tool and displayed an incredible batting average at the AAA level. If he can carve out a consistent role, this could be a league-winning add.
