Fantasy Baseball 2017: Hitter Streamers Week 12

Welcome back this week to Hitter Streamers Week 12. With almost half the fantasy season over, you are either heading towards the playoffs or heading towards the fantasy toilet. Hopefully you have tuned in here often enough to keep your head above water and you are fighting the good fight. However, no matter your situation, you never give up. Ever. Just not allowed. So even if your team is ravaged by injures (I placed 10 guys on the disabled list so far this year, which would equate to roughly 24 over a full season…P.S. still in first!) you can always stream your way to victory. I particularly like the names below this week 12, so if you are hurting on offense you will get a good quick pick-me-up from the available guys below.

David Peralta, OF (ARI, 47% Yahoo ownership)

There ain’t nothing like a series in Coors Field to boost your fantasy rating for a week. Especially when you play for the one of the most prolific scoring offenses in the game. But the fun does not end there for Daivd Peralta as he faces the punchless Philadelphia Phillies who rank 29th in the Majors in ERA. Peralta, a lefty, obviously exhibits the normal splits, faring far better against right-handed pitching. And wouldn’t you know he faces righties in all 6 of his games this upcoming week 12. On the year, Peralta sports a cool .328 average and .862 OPS against righties. Throw in the fact that he is a lifetime .309 hitter in Coors and .318 hitter in Chase Field (where the Diamondbacks will play host to the Phillies) and Peralta should pile up the stats batting in the 2 hole.

Keon Broxton, OF (MIL, 39% Yahoo ownership)

I think the addition of Minor League superstar prospect Lewis Brinson ignited a flame under the smokeless fire that was Keon Broxton. Since June 11 (the Brewers called Brinson up on June 10th mind you), Broxton has batted .300 (6/20) with 4 home runs, 6 runs and 9 RBI. I guess athletes are just like us: threaten someone with his/her job and you’ll see how dedicated that person is to their profession. Projected as a major power/speed dual threat player, Broxton has delivered on that promise this year with 10 homers and 10 steals thus far (with an end of year projection of 23 for each). Now Broxton does still does have major issues with strikeouts and walks (projected for 216 strikeouts and only 38 walks), so his batting average concerns are real. The good news is, if he can learn more plate discipline he has the speed to keep his batting average high when he puts the ball in play (career .362 BABIP). With that rare power/speed combination and playing half his games in Miller Park protected by sluggers and skilled hitters, Broxton could soon turn into a poor-man’s Alfonso Soriano caliber player with 30/30 capabilities.

Mallex Smith, OF (TB, 36% Yahoo ownership)

As soon as the Tampa Bay Rays recalled Mallex Smith from the minors I recommended to all my friends to immediately grab him. But even I did not know what Tampa had on its hands. Since the recall, in 8 games Smith is 13/30 (.433 average) with 10 runs, 1 home run, 3 RBIs, 4 stolen bases and an 1.133 OPS. Of course this is an effect of a small sample size and the OPS/power numbers will assuredly drop as he profiles more as a speedster. However, the small sample does clue us into his talents and abilities, showing us that he has true staying power in the big leagues. In week 12 Smith will face the 28th (Cincinnati Reds) and 30th (Baltimore Orioles) ranked teams by ERA, so expect Tampa’s slugging offense (second in home runs with 104) to put up a ton of runs. With Smith batting leadoff, expect him to fill up the stats sheet, especially with respect to runs and stolen bases.

Kevin Pillar, OF (TOR, 41% Yahoo ownership)

Josh Donaldson has not had the effect that I thought he would have on leadoff batter Kevin Pillar‘s statistical output. Well not yet at least. While Donaldson has turned into his former MVP self since coming off the disabled list on May 26, Pillar is batting just .145 (11/76) with 10 runs, 1 homer and 9 RBI. Tough to imagine that stat line given how great Donaldson has been. However, before Donaldson came back, Pillar showed plenty of signs of life batting .295  with an .824 OPS. Pillar has plenty of sluggers behind him with Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Kendrys Morales. As long as Pillar stops forcing the issue, he should level out to his career .270ish average. With that lineup and his ability to steal bases, expect Pillar to run wild and score early and often against two middle of the road pitching staffs week 12.

Come back to Roto Street Journal every weekend to check out my top hitter streamers and build your best lineup for success. Good luck navigating Week 12 everyone, and happy streaming!
