Help From The DL

Looking for some extra help down the stretch?  You may want to look at a couple players coming off the DL this weekend. Both Mike Napoli (78% owned) and Eric Young Jr. (12% owned) are available to many managers.
Napoli provides power and has both C and 1B eligibility. Ranger’s manager Ron Washington has already stated Napoli will be behind the plate. He will be splitting time with Soto but should get a few DH duties too. His quadriceps injury seems to be healed completely.
Young was one of the hottest hitter in all of baseball before his muscle strain. In his 174 ABs he had a slash line of .318/.379/.451 with 36 Runs and 14 SB. He has both 2B and OF eligibility and will be atop of the Rockies order when he returns.
I have been able to pick up both players in a few leagues and will stash them just so my competition does not get their services. Napoli will be helpful in one of my leagues when Mauer is not playing and Young will be used to fill in for players with off days or if I need some Runs and SB down the stretch.
