Lonnie Chisenhall has been the most added bat in recent days across all fantasy baseball formats.  Chisenhall lost his starting gig to Carlos Santana in spring training, who shifted from the catcher position, opening up playing time for Yan Gomes. But Santana has struggled mightily to hit the ball, and Chisenhall has made the most of his 119 ABs with 2 home runs, 10 runs batted in and 20 runs scored, to go along with a .370 BA & .429 OBP.  Now that Nick Swisher has landed on the DL, Santana will play first base, making Chisenhall a must own in all leagues. #492484049 / gettyimages.comPower BatsMark Reynolds continues to be an old school slugger, with 12 home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers. Problem is, he owns a .216 BA with 57 strike outs to just 18 base on balls. If you play in a league where AVG, OBP and Ks don't matter, than you can risk owning Mark Reynolds. For the 99% of us in normal leagues, don't even think about it! Same can be said about Mike Olt and Khris Davis. If you need a slugger, Adam Dunn and Derek Norris are the only players on ESPN, under 50% owned, with at least 5 home runs and an OBP above .350.  Juan Francisco and Seth Smith are two other options in Yahoo leagues.Hot WheelsDexter Fowler, Drew Stubbs and Lorenzo Cain are the only players owned in less than 50% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues with 5 or more stolen bases and an OBP above .350. Fowler has drawn 33 walks and is the best available option for some stolen bases, without punting all other categories. Kolten Wong has been great since he return to the St. Louis Cardinals, with a .390 OBP in May and 4 of his 7 stolen bases in just 37 ABs. This is who we thought he was before the season started so take a chance! Blast From the PastGordon Beckham has returned to the Chicago White Sox lineup and is hitting .330 in May over 100 ABs!  Beckham has 6 doubles and 4 home runs this month, leading to 15 runs scored and 10 runs batted in.  2B is not a position with much depth, Beckham ranks in the top 10 of nearly every category in May and is worth riding out. Day StreamingWhile you could justify owning almost any of the following starters, depending on your league format, it might make more sense to add and drop a couple of them each week.  Jorge de la Rosa is 4-0 in May with a 1.93 ERA over 5 starts.  Travis Wood also has 4 wins in May (on the same Cubs team that finally gave Jeff Samardzija his 1st win of the season) but owns a 5.17 ERA.  Further proof that QS>W in fantasy baseball and you all should switch your leagues next season.  Collin McHugh continues to confuse fantasy baseball owners with a 3.94 ERA in May, striking out 31 over 29.2 IP.  Ubaldo Jimenez has finally found himself and kept his ERA under 3.50 with 30 strikeouts to just 11 walks and allowed a single home run.  Ian Kennedy continues to be Ian Kennedy and even with a 4.11 ERA in May, is a decent stream each time he takes the mound because of his high K rate (35 in 30.2 IP in May)..Other Pitchers with ERA under 3.00 in May:Ryan Vogelsong SFBronson Arroyo ARIMike Leake CINJuan NicasioCharlie Morton PITGavin Floyd ATLTommy Milone OAKSneaky SavesIt is no secret that Jenrry Mejia is the New York Mets closer and Zach Britton has taken over the role for the Baltimore Orioles.  However, they can be placed in a SP slot, allowing you to pick up EXTRA saves on days where your starters have the day off!
