Nelson Cruz:  2/4 with 2 home runs (18 for season) while hitting .285.  Still impressed not by the power from Cruz which was always potent but the average improvement as his career has gone on.

Leonys Martin:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .254.  Who knew?

James McCann:  1/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .203.  Whether it is Brian McCann or James McCann, they both have been horrenodus.

Ryan Howard:  2/5 with his 11th HR while hitting .150.  A new low standard has now been reached when it comes to a pure home run specialist and nothing else with Ryan Howard this season.

Jerad Eickhoff:  6 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.36.  With Aaron Nola struggling, all of a sudden Eickhoff is staking his claim to being the best young pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies.  I am a fan.

Jose Abreu:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .267.  Ladies and gentleman this is the new Jose Abreu which I have been saying for week.  Very good power but a .270 average and not .300.

Khris Davis:  1/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .239.  Davis has picked up right where he left off the second half of last season when he hit home runs like they were going out of style.  He is safely in the tier of "home run outfielder 3" as long as you got average covered elsewhere.

Marcus Semien:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .236.  Same goes for Semien at shortstop. 

Tim Lincecum:  3 IP 7 H 4 ER 2 BB 2 K with an ERA of 5.00.  If only he had iced his arm.  Or that the Giants didn't make him throw 169273011 innings before he turned 28.  Boy for an organization that is as good a place for a pitcher to go in baseball due to the ballpark, they sure know how to ruin arms (right Matt Cain?). 

Matt Kemp:  1/5 with his 16th HR while hitting .267.  Very nice season from Kemp thus far but stop daydreaming about the past as the steals are never coming back and same goes for the helpful average.

Derek Norris:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .215.  Yeah so not liking the J.P. Arencibia impersonation here. 

Adam Duvall:  2/4 with his 21st HR while hitting .263.  Can't say enough nice things about this bomb of a value play this season.  Duvall could hit 35 home runs for the price of a waiver add in April.  Should have seen this one coming after he reached the 30 mark last season on the farm.  Couldn't see past the ugly averages however as it is a habit. 

John Lamb:  2/5 with his 15th HR while hitting .279.  Lamb is the third base version of Duvall. 

Marcell Ozuna:  1/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .322.  Right now Marcell Ozuna is blowing first round pick Giancarlo Stanton out of the fantasy baseball water.

Giancarlo Stanton:  1/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .216.  Stanton just doesn't seem like he has ever seen the ball like he used to before getting a pitch off the face from Mike Fiers.  Stock heading way downward this season.

Jon Lester:  7 IP 5 H 2 ER 3 BB 7 K with an ERA of 2.10.  The most pronounced competition Lester will get for the NL Cy Young is from anyone in the Cubs rotation.
