Recommended Pickup
Eric Stults, P, SD – Stults may be flying under the radar in a league near you. After a rocky April, Stults has turned it on in his eight starts throughout May and June. He has a bit of an advantage with Petco Park as his home park, but he also just delivered two very quality starts on the road.

Other Recent Recommendations:Kyle Blanks, Matt Garza, Chris Johnson, Dan Uggla, Jonathan Lucroy, Yasiel Puig
