Had a chance to exhale after your first round of lineup locks? Well, sorry. Another one is coming up.
At least ... if your league is treating opening weekend as its own separate scoring period, as is the default setting. If you folded it in with the first full week for a giant 11-day scoring period, then nevermind. We'll talk a week from now.
If, however, you are someone who needs a short-term hitter fix for the scoring period that runs from July 27 through Aug. 2, I have you covered right here with 10 bats rostered in less than 70 percent of CBS Sports leagues.
I also have 10 sleeper pitchers, if your needs are more in that arena.
WAS Washington • #47 • Age: 39
The Nationals need his bat more than ever with Juan Soto going down, which should make him a fixture in that DH spot for a favorable seven-game schedule.
Gio Urshela 3B
LAA L.A. Angels • #10 • Age: 31
If he picks up where he left off last year, it won't be much longer that Urshela even qualifies for this list. The matchups, particularly that Red Sox series, aren't steering you away this week.
Adam Eaton RF
LAA L.A. Angels • #9 • Age: 34
Batting high in the lineup, reaching base with regularity and providing usable amounts of power and speed, Eaton is an attractive play whenever he has favorable matchups.
Wil Myers RF
CIN Cincinnati • #4 • Age: 32
The Padres get the first visit to Coors Field this year, and Wil Myers actually has lineup spot to get the most out of his power/speed combo that wasn't permitted to flourish the past two years.
Aaron Hicks CF
BAL Baltimore • #34 • Age: 33
Not only was Aaron Hicks in the lineup on opening day but he also hit leadoff. He'll probably hit fifth most days, but the point is he's a fixture again and has terrific matchups against Jake Arrieta, Zach Eflin and the back end of the Red Sox rotation.
NYM N.Y. Mets • #52 • Age: 37
The Mets get a big dose of that Red Sox rotation, too, and miss the toughest Braves starting pitchers. Here's hoping Cespedes' power stroke is back after three leg surgeries.
CIN Cincinnati • #4 • Age: 35
The Japanese league standout may be going underappreciated as the table setter for arguably the most improved lineup in baseball and has a chance to prove it in that Tigers series especially.
Ian Happ LF
CHC Chi. Cubs • #8 • Age: 28
Playing time remains a question given the way manager David Ross has said he'd like to use some of the Cubs' bench players, but Happ has big power and the right matchups to take advantage, especially those four games at Great American Ball Park.
SD San Diego • #1 • Age: 26
He remains unproven, of course, but I look forward to seeing what a guy who put together a 1.010 OPS in the minors last year does with three games against the Giants' junky staff and three games at Coors Field.
Amed Rosario SS
CLE Cleveland • #1 • Age: 27
What's good for Cespedes is also good for Rosario, though it'll more likely manifest as balls hit in play (i.e. singles) than hit out of the yard.
