Here are your fantasy baseball links for today, August 26:

Under The Fantasy Microscope: Ryan Zimmerman | Roto Hardball

Over the entire season, Zimmerman has a .305/.369/.473 line with nine home runs, 38 RBI, and 34 R -- unimpressive raw totals for late August, but he's only played in 70 games. Over 162 games, those numbers translate to roughly 20 HR, 90 RBI, and 80 R. In today's third base environment, that's elite.

Basically he has become a one-trick pony of sorts, much like Alfonso Soriano. If you’re looking for power, Hunter can help. He is not a player to build your team around anymore, but he can be useful.

Allen and Bourjos: Waiver Wire | FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball

Though some may call him a puffed-up product of the PCL, Allen’s minor league power numbers are far more than a league-induced mirage. Unless they’ve recently allowed metal bats in the PCL, a .956 OPS over parts of three seasons is still notable, especially since Allen pairs his power with an above-average walk rate, something he has continued to post during his minimal time in the majors.

Working The Wire: Adding Pitching Depth for the Stretch Run | Rotoprofessor

Hughes has a 1.75 ERA in his last four starts, all of them quality starts and three of them being wins. I haven’t forgotten how bad Hughes was before those four starts, but the talent was always there, he just wasn’t right for one reason or another, he seems right now. Hughes only has 15 K’s in those 25 innings of work, but that number should be on the rise if he truly is right, last season he had a 7.45 K/9 rate.

Don't Look Back in Anger: Luke Hochevar, Mike Carp, Brandon McCarthy | Razzball

I really thought, at this point, Hochevar would be an average MLB starter, someone in the Jeremy Guthrie mold who could do some nice things. While this belief has not come to fruition, it is still possible for him to take the necessary step forward.
