Two-thirds of the way through the fantasy season, a recap of some of the more interesting fantasy facts and observations to date:

— To me, it’s not the number of Tommy John surgeries cropping up, but how they already have claimed so many top young pitchers (Jose Fernandez, Kris Medlen, Jarrod Parker, A.J. Griffin, Matt Harvey). Maybe it’s true. Lacking the experience to know how to really ‘pitch’ the kids are simply rearing back and throwing as hard as they can for as long as they can and their elbows can’t take it.

— Is there a better overall fantasy hitting season going on anywhere than with Carlos Gomez? Not only is the Brewers’ OF already in double digits in both homers and steals (projecting to a 30-30 season) and batting .323, but he could also be looking at 100 runs and, perhaps,100 RBIs. However, perhaps the most amazing stat is the .406 BABIP he’s been lucky enough to sustain over the first two months.
