Fantasy baseball: Soroka and Senzel among sensible selections

Mike Soroka is unlikely to remain on the waiver wire in too many leagues if his current level of performance continues. Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Braves right-hander Mike Soroka and Cincinnati Reds second baseman Nick Senzel highlight the free-agent additions for this week. Soroka, a first-round pick in the 2015 amateur draft, produced significant numbers in the minor leagues and looked to be a future ace, with three above-average pitches, good control and strikeout upside. Shoulder issues intervened last season, but fantasy managers seemed to ignore the fact that Soroka was healthy heading into 2019. He sure looks great, having allowed just one run in each of his three outings, with 21 strikeouts over 16⅔ innings.
