Fantasy Baseball: Players Added The Most June 26

Jordan Yamamoto, Logan Allen and Zach Plesac are the three most added fantasy baseball players of the past day. This list compares the three starting pitchers and which ones should be added first.

Jordan Yamamoto, SP, Miami Marlins, +45.3 percent

Yamamoto has made three superb appearances in the MLB this season. He faced the St. Louis Cardinals twice and pitched seven innings in each game and allowed five total hits. He struck out 12 batters over those two games as well as another seven against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Yamamoto gets the chance to repeat this success against the Phillies on Saturday.

Logan Allen, SP, San Diego Padres, +22.6 percent

Similar to Yamamoto, Logan Allen has pitched well in his first MLB games this season. On Tuesday, June 18 he pitched against the Milwaukee Brewers and allowed three hits and two walks over seven innings. Allen later came away with the win and impressed everybody in his MLB debut. He faced some troubles against the Baltimore Orioles allowing two earned runs on eight hits and two walks. He faces a weak hitting team in the San Francisco Giants on Monday.

Zach Plesac, SP, Cleveland Indians, +22.3 percent

Plesac was on this list Thursday, June 13. At the time he was coming off his worst start of the season that saw him allow four earned runs to the Cincinnati Reds. Since he has pitched two more games into the seventh inning with only one earned run in each of those.

Comparison

 Yamamoto has thus far been the most impressive pitcher of the three due to his strikeouts. He averages nine strikeouts per nine innings compared to Plesac and Allen who are both under seven. In fantasy baseball strikeouts are king, giving Yamamoto the edge. Allen was struggling in Triple-A before his call up and is a means of concern for his future putting him below Plesac. Plesac could be a hard pick up, however, as he is owned in 74.4 percent of ESPN leagues.
