Zinkie: Continue to use Vargas for most matchups. But be selective about using Santana. Don't drop either one yet.
Zinkie on Kershaw to DL
Zinkie on fantasy impact of Kershaw to DL
MLB.com's Fred Zinkie discusses what fantasy owners should do with Clayton Kershaw on the 10-day DL
@JosephC74359195: Who should I drop out of Jose Bautista, Jackie Bradley Jr. or Yoan Moncada?
Zinkie: Drop Bautista. He isn't hitting for average or producing steals and RBIs.
@nmach10: Danny Salazar looked good against Toronto in his first outing. Should I pick him up?
Zinkie: I want to see another start. The Blue Jays have really been slumping of late.
@halfway_cook: What should I do with Miguel Cabrera? Should I trade him?
Zinkie: Cabrera's trade value is likely too low at this point. You can bench him for now if you have other good options.
@D_Barrett18: Who will have a better second half of the season, Starling Marte or Yoenis Cespedes?
Zinkie: Marte. Especially in roto formats.
Zinkie on fantasy starters
Zinkie on starters who could impact fantasy races
MLB.com fantasy writer Fred Zinkie looks at some starting pitchers who could have a fantasy impact down the stretch
@azito23: Should I drop Lorenzo Cain for one of Nick Williams, Cory Spangenberg, Odubel Herrera or David Peralta?
Zinkie: I would stick with Cain over those options.
@tyler_brodeur20: When do you think Amed Rosario is going to get the call?
Zinkie: Early August.
@DarrenHill221: Should I drop Steven Matz for Reynaldo Lopez, in hopes that Lopez will get promoted?
Zinkie: I wouldn't make that switch. Lopez could have difficult matchups and may not thrive right away.
@davesull4: Which pitcher should I drop out of Kyle Hendricks, Gerrit Cole, Cole Hamels and Sonny Gray?
Zinkie: Tough call, but getting rid of Hamels is my pick.
@DylansSports1: What should I do with Jacob Faria?
Zinkie: You should continue to start Faria. Overall, he has been very solid.
@AnthonyBiondo3: Please rank Alex Bregman, Ian Happ and Nick Williams.
Zinkie: Bregman, Happ, Williams.
@Z_Nelsy: Should Paul DeJong be added in all leagues?
Zinkie: Pretty much. Definitely in all roto leagues.

MLB.com's Fred Zinkie gives fantasy advice on three prospects you might want to stash in your fantasy league
@JosephC74359195: Which pitcher should I drop out of Jose Berrios, Jimmy Nelson or Danny Salazar?
Zinkie: Salazar. Berrios has terrific skills and Nelson has been excellent this year.
@tickster24: Please rank Nomar Mazara, Carlos Gomez, Hunter Renfroe, Jason Heyward, Kole Calhoun, Stephen Piscotty.
Zinkie: Mazara, Calhoun, Gomez, Renfroe, Piscotty, Heyward.
@alfredo_gc: Do you prefer Yoan Moncada or Rafael Devers?
Zinkie: I'll take Moncada in roto and Devers in points leagues.
@jjthorn17: Would you rather have Yuli Gurriel or Rafael Devers?
Zinkie: Gurriel is safer. If Gurriel is the worst hitter on your team, I'll take Devers for the upside. If you have to depend on one, it's Gurriel.
@ReverendAdam2: Who should I start, Tyler Clippard or Anthony Swarzak?
Zinkie: Clippard, but keep your expectations low.

Zinkie: Cahill, Lugo, Suter, Snell.
