Austin Romine
With Gary Sanchez on the shelf (biceps injury) for a month, fantasy owners will be scrambling for an option behind the dish. A natural option would be to look at his replacement. Austin Romine (pictured) is the logical replacement. He’ll also split duties with Kyle Higashioka. Romine figures to see the majority of the at bats. Is he worth an add?
Romine hit .242 last year in 165 at bats with 17 runs, four home runs and 26 RBI. He did show a little power, as 15 of his 40 hits were for extra bases.
Romine hit .274 with three of his HRs and 15 of his RBI against left-handed pitching. He’s worth a flier as a plug-in play or in daily fantasy leagues when he’s facing a southpaw.
Some preferred options:
Tucker Barnhart, Cincinnati Reds: .257-34-7-51-1 last year, .250 with a run this year
Welington Castillo, Baltimore Orioles: .264-41-14-68-2 last year, .286 with an RBI this year
Francisco Cervelli, Pittsburgh Pirates: .264-42-133-6 last year, .211 with four runs, one HR, three RBI this year
Sandy Leon, Boston Red Sox: .310-367-35 last year, .368 with three runs, one HR, five RBI this year (top choice if available)
James McCann, Detroit Tigers: .221-31-12-48-0 last year, .214 with two runs, two HRs, three RBI this year
Cameron Rupp, Philadelphia Phillies: .252-36-16-54-1 last year, .167 with three runs, one HR, two RBI this year
Stephen Vogt, Oakland A’s: .251-54-14-56-0 last year, .261, two runs, one HR, two RBI this year
