Michael Brantley:  1/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .306.  Brantley is one of those special hitters who can roll out of bed.....or virtually miss two full seasons.....and hit .300.

Dallas Keuchel:  9 IP 6 H 2 ER 3 BB 5 K with an ERA of 1.22.  Man this guy.  You can forget about the 200-plus K's from 2015 as those are never coming back and belong in the outlier bin but a c;early healthy Keuchel is doing his 2014 thing again when he pitched to a 2.93 ERA despite a shaky 6.57 K/9/  Keuchel's K/9 this year?  6.57.  

Kyle Hendricks:  6 IP 4 H 0 ER 2 BB 3 K with an ERA of 4.50.  Much better from Hendricks but honestly he couldn't be any worse coming in.  I this helps you get out from under him, then by all means sell.

Gerrit Cole:  7 IP 2 H 0 ER 0 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.60.  Like with Dalls Keuchel, Gerrit Cole must be feeling good after a ruined 2016 due to injury.  The K's are popping now when that happens, Cole can be a fantasy baseball ace.

Wade Miley:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 6 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.08.  Another big K game from Miley but again the advanced numbers have so many red flags that you think he was from Stalin's Russia.

Jean Segura:  3/6 with his second HR while hitting .342.  This is a nice way to re-introduce yourself to your fantasy baseball owners.  Second big start to a season in a row now for Segura.

Nelson Cruz:  3/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .297.  A bit of a slow power start but honestly there is no cause for concern since Cruz is healthy and hitting for average.

Justin Upton:  2/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .294.  Ahh this brings back memories of earlier versions of Upton when he wasn't such an average train wreck.  

Felix Hernandez:  2 IP 6 H 4 ER 2 BB 2 K with an ERA of 4.73.  It has all gone terrible wrong here for King Felix but you know how I felt about him coming in.  I sounded the alarms on Hernandez going into LAST season and the drop in velocity and ruination of his arm from all those massive 200-IP seasons are coming to roost.  It's over.

Adam Duvall:  1/4 with his 6th HR while hitting .224.  Blah.  

Eric Thames:  1/3 with his 11th HR while hitting .371.  As another publication put out in a headline, Thames is on pace for 81 home runs.  (throws hands up in the air).

Hernan Perez:  3/3 with his third HR while hitting .261.  Time to jump back on the Perez train.  Juice is leaking everywhere.  

Miguel Sano:  3/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .258.  Figured Sano would get a bit of a pop in his numbers after his dust up the other day.  

Joey Gallo:  1/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .224.  Man Gall can really send the baseball a long way.  Just to show you how he is seen by many with the nasty average, Gallo is a free agent in the Experts League.

Mike Moustakas:  2/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .296.  Moustakas is hitting for major power and leading off.  The third base version of Corey Dickerson.

Danny Duffy:  6 ER in 4.2 IP with an ERA of 2.81.  I am a bit worried about Duffy as his velocity has lagged all season so far, which has caused his K/9 to dip and now this.  Hmmm.

Roberto Osuna:  second blown save with 1 ER in 1 IP with a 5.40.  I am starting to think Osuna is not healthy and the concern meter is growing.  Might be time to add Joe Biagini in case.  

Trea Turner:  4/6 with his first HR while hitting .289.  I mean would it have killed Turner to steal a base?  

Carlos Gonzalez:  1/3 with his second HR while hitting .219.  Oh wow I was starting to think CarGo was on the DL or something given how absent he was from doing anything positive. 

Mark Reynolds:  1/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .324.  The Rockies are now thinking of having Ian Desmond go back to the outfield in order to keep Reynolds in the lineup.  Why not?

Charlie Blackmon:  3/5 with his 7th HR while hitting .286.  Blackmon is downright silly with the power right now and I vow not to talk about the lack of steals anymore given how everything else is going swimmingly.  Hey we all age.

Paul Goldschmidt:  4/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .297.  Take that Trea Turner.  No non-hit at-bats.

Mike Trout:  1/3 with his 4th HR while hitting .246.  Please get this guy onto a winning team, preferably the East Coast.

Santiago Casilla:  first blown save with 1 ER in 1 IP with an ERA of 4.00.  Sean Doolittle has a 2.57 ERA in front of him but since he is lefty, he can't possibly be a closer.  Ridiculous.
