P Trevor Bauer, Cleveland

Adding Bauer to the fantasy team is probably the best example of overreaction on this list. Last season, he was just 5-8 with a 4.18 ERA in 153 innings.

But he is off to a hot start this season, so if there is room in the pitching rotation, he is worth a flier.

Bauer is 2-0 and hasn’t given up a run in 12 innings over his first two starts this season. He also has 19 strikeouts and leads the league with a 14.3 K/9.

The problem is he also leads the American League with nine walks, so at some point, that is going to come back to bite him. Owners should plan accordingly.
