Fantasy baseball News & Notes: Puig a serious buy-low candidate
Like with Braun, I'm a believer in talent, and Puig has oodles of it. Not only is he a beast who single-handedly carried fantasy teams to glory last summer, but he's also the most dependable of the Dodgers' outfielder core; Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are constant injury threats. As long as Puig is healthy, he's going to be hitting near the top of the most loaded offense in baseball on a daily basis. Before he gets the chance to silence his critics, it wouldn't hurt to see what you can get for the elite outfielder.
• Michael Morse has gotten four hits in his last seven at bats (although one of those hits was a gift from the sun). Morse got off to a torrid start last year, and was then horrendous for the rest of the season as he struggled to overcome a variety of injuries. Now with a new team, he looks much more like the player he was in Washington, when he was a serious threat to hit .300 and smash 30 home runs. He's started all but one game this year, is hitting behind Brandon Belt, Pablo Sandoval, Hunter Pence and Buster Posey, and is now batting .391 with seven RBI. He's a legitimate add in standard leagues.
