Fantasy Baseball: Week 9 Stock Up, Stock Down

On the Fall: Michael Pineda, SP NYY

Michael Pineda has been downright awful in 2016. For a guy with so much promise, fantasy owners cannot keep on getting deceived by him anymore.

The 6’7” righty is 3-6 with a 6.14 ERA in 2016. Though his last two starts have been encouraging, Pineda has been very inconsistent. Being inconsistent has been a flaw for Big Mike in the Bronx. Last year, he was 12-10 with a 4.37 ERA.

Pineda will need quite a few impressive starts in a row before anyone should think about picking him up in their fantasy leagues. If you still have him on your roster, don’t be like the Yankees and hold on to poor performers, rather, drop him and find someone better on the waiver wire.

I have been a passionate sports fan my whole life. It started from when my parents would take me every year to Yankee Stadium for Old Timer's Day. I enjoy all sports but baseball is my favorite. I am a proud father of a beautiful little girl and manager at AT&T.
