Aaron Judge:  1/4 with his 17th HR while hitting .319.  This is truly getting insane now.  Judge takes over the MLB lead in home runs and unlike someone such as Chris Davis...or Khris Davis.....the Yankee outfielder is showing he can make the adjustments to hit for average to go with the power.  Could be looking at near-first round status next season if this keeps on going.

Dylan Bundy:  7 IP 7 H 2 ER 1 BB 3 K with an ERA of 2.89.  I know, I know.  I keep saying Bundy will start getting hit due to all his BABIP luck and continued shoddy K/9 rate which doesn't work in the AL East.  Keep the faith in this prediction because if that doesn't get Bundy first, fatigue will.

Cody Bellinger:  1/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .271.  The power has been unending here but see how the average is dropping?  There is a case to be made that Bellinger is the new George Springer but let's hope he keeps on running.

Logan Forsythe:  1/4 with his first HR while hitting .238.  I like Forsythe but the Dodgers are going to regret moving Jose De Leon for him.

Rich Hill:  5 IP 2 H 1 ER 2 BB 4 K with an ERA of 4.09.  Five innings and out is what the Dodgers will only allow Hill to do now given his rampant blister problems.  Not the best way to collect wins and K's.

Mookie Betts:  2/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .274.  So good he is boring.

David Price:  5 IP 2 H 3 ER 2 BB 4 K with an ERA of 5.40.  Decent enough for Price's first start back from the DL.  It will be interesting if Price can regain his old velocity and stop with all the home runs he has been giving up the last two years.  I am not a fan of his anymore as I think Price is a depreciating pitcher built more on name brand.

Carlos Correa:  3/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .311.  Shame on any of you who sold low on Correa when he was struggling in April.  And there were a few of you as per Twitter.

Carlos Beltran:  4/5 with his 6th HR while hitting .253.  Beltran has been slow with the bat this season and at his advanced age, nothing shocking there.  It has been a fun and wild ride but it looks like Beltran is now nothing but a bench outfielder in deep leagues.

Alex Bregman:  2/5 with his 4th HR while hitting .254.  Really like the way Bregman is swinging the bat right now and like with Correa, the talent was way too potent to keep down for long.

Miguel Sano:  1/4 with his 12th HR while hitting .292.  Sano has been off to an MVP start and if he hit 40 home runs it would not surprise me in the least.  Any average over .270 would though.

Ervin Santana:  7 IP 5 H 1 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 1.75.  I give up.

Trevor Story:  1/4 with his 8th HR whileh it hitting .191.  Yup his only hit of the game.

Charlie Blackmon:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .329.  Blackmon was a first or second round pick given his power/speed game but now he is a first or second round pick given his power and average.

Tony Watson:  third blown save with 2 ER in 1 IP with an ERA of 4.03.  Major trouble here as Watson has been blowing a bunch of saves of late and Felipe Rivero has been dominant in front of him.  Pick up Rivero if you are a Watson owner.

Ryan Zimmerman:  3/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .374.  How about the guy who drafted Ervin Santana and Ryan Zimmerman in the last two rounds of their draft?

Tanner Roark:  7 IP 6 H 0 ER 1 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.86.  Two dominant starts in a row for Roark who is fully back in control after some recent struggles.  I told you all to stay patient.

Yonder Alonso:  1/4 with his 14th HR while hitting .273.  Up is down this season.

Ryon Healy:  3/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .271. 25 home runs is not out of the question and they seem like they will sneak up on us by the end of the season.

Khris Davis:  1/4 with his 16th HR while hitting .227.  I think I am starting to like the other Chris Davis better now.

Edwin Encarnacion:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .221.  I am hearing some "Encarnacion is back" talk but the power is the least of my worries here.  I want that average up above .255 before I even consider the thought that Encarnacion has not grown old before our eyes.

Carlos Santana:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .232.  By now the script is the same here with Santana.  While he may be capable of an uptick season (like 2016), the fact of the matter is that he remains a flawed hitter who will test your patience all season.

Carlos Carrasco:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 2.89.  Looks like Carrasco is fully back on track now and at least for now has avoided health trouble.

Whit Merrifield:  3/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .289.  Merrifield has been trying to get your attention for awhile now but the complete disgrace that has been the K.C. lineup has overshadowed his contributions.

Eric Hosmer:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .300.  Hosmer can't decide in any given year if he wants to hit for power (last season) or average (this season).  He has shown he can't do both in conjunction.

J.D. Martinez:  1/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .288,  What might have been if Martinez had not gotten injured.
