Edwin Encarnacion:  1/2 with his 19th HR while hitting .255.  Encarncion is on pace for another 40 home run season and that is how he is judged around here and nothing more.  The nagging injuries have not surfaced yet which is a nice bonus.

Russell Martin:  1/3 with his 6th HR while hitting .218.  Martin has picked up a bunch of RBI with 28 which is a very good total for a catcher but his average is a joke and the power is way down from a year ago.  That is not a total shock though as Martin was in outlier territory there in terms of the home runs.  Age a problem as it would be for any catcher with Martin's digits.

Troy Tulowitzki:  1/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .215.  Still no signs of an upward push in the average department from Tulo but at least his power has returned to pre-hip surgery form.  Like with our updated shortstop rankings though, the infusion of shortstop talent this season has believe it nor knocked Tulo close to being not worth of daily usage in 12-team leagues.

J.A. Happ:  5 IP 6 H 2 ER 4 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.42.  Now Happ wants to strike a high number of guys out in a given start.  I am done trying to figure this one out.

Nick Hundley:  2/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .265.  We are now up to one home runs since I told you to pick up Hundley.

Carlos Beltran:  1/3 with his 19th HR while hitting .286.  Someone please remind Beltran he was supposed to be completely shot by now and walking with a cane.

Starlin Castro:  3/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .260.  Castro looks like he is perfectly fine being a volatile player from week to week with his swings in production but 10 home runs prior to the break from a middle infielder is still quite nice.

C.C. Sabbathia:  5 ER in 4.1 IP with an ERA of 2.72.  You had to know this was coming soon enough as Sabbathia was in way over his head with his ace numbers.  Could be the start of the downfall for arguably the worst pitcher in the game the last three years.

Jose Altuve:  1/2 with his 12th HR while hitting .343.  Jose Altuve has 12 freakin' home runs.  And is hitting freakin' .343.  And he is only freakin' 5-7.  Move over Mike Trout?

Scooter Gennett:  3/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .275.  Gennett is having a career-year by his modified standards.  I still wouldn't own him but props.

Justin Bour:  2/3 with his 12th HR while hitting .267.  Doing a better Adam Lind impression then Adam Lind.

Adam Conley:  8 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.56.  Solid season by Conley without blowing anything up as we have a new SP 4/5 entrant.

Asdrubal Cabrera:  2/3 with his 8th HR while hitting .270.  Second home run in a row for Cabrera who has shown he can still hold his own as a daily fantasy baseball shortstop despite reaching his 30's.  Something to be said for the consistency but Cabrera unfairly gets knock for never repeating his one outlier monster campaign a few years back.

Noah Syndegaard:  6 IP 8 H 3 ER 0 BB 4 K with an ERA of 2.08.  Velocity was down, K rate way down, and now headed for MRI on elbow.  Other then that it was a good day.

 Mark Trumbo:  3/4 with his 21st HR while hitting .283.  Not sure whether to be ecstatic that Trumbo has all these home runs or that he is hitting over .280.

Miguel Cabrera:  1/2 with his 16th HR while hitting .307.  Hey if we get 30 home runs out of Miggy then that is more than good enough.  Amazing the standards we hold on the guy. 

Stephen Moya:  3/4 with 2 home runs (3 for season) while hitting .321.  Well that is a nice way to get noticed.  Moya almost has as many home runs already as Justin Upton.  Sad for the latter.

Eugenio Suarez:  2/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .229.  It looked so promising in April but again the main reason he was on our draft guide bust list was for the .229.
