MLB Barometer: Risers & Fallers
MLB Barometer: Risers & Fallers

This article is part of our MLB Barometer series.

With the trade deadline nearly two weeks in the rearview mirror, we've undoubtedly reached the home stretch of the season, but it's certainly not too late to improve your team. Late-season breakouts happen all the time, meaning helpful players could still be available on waivers. Additionally, many leagues have mid-August trade deadlines, giving you time to make a key late addition.

To get a sense for just how useful additions can still be at this point, I looked at the players who recorded top-10 marks in a handful of standard fantasy categories from Aug. 12 to the end of the season last year. (Wins and saves aren't easily available in splits leaderboards.) The following list gives a notable player in each category along with their performance until that point of the season.
