Chris Tilman, Baltimore Oriole SP (20.9% ownership, -13.5% last 7 days)

Cameron Maybin, Los Angeles Angels OF (30.6% ownership, +10.6% last 7 days)
THE only reason that Maybin is on the ‘Worth Watching” list and not the ‘Worthwhile’ list is due to a recent injury. He had been firing before a sore oblique sidelined him. That means that most people with half an eye on him will turn to other options. Don’t make the same mistake.
Trevor Bauer, Cleveland Indians SP (30.0% ownership, +7.8% last 7 days)
ERA troubles plagued Bauer earlier on in the season. Currently though he is balling throwing 14 K’s in seven innings while allowing just three runs a few days ago. Monitor his progress and act accordingly.
THE Toronto Blue Jays rejoiced with Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson returning from the DL to give their offense a much needed boost. While we are on the topic of DL popular pitcher A.J. Griffin suffered an intercostal injury that will sideline him for the near future. Charlier Morton, Jacoby Ellsbury and Danny Duffy are also DL bound after a variety of injuries will force them to miss time.
