2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WRAPUP: THURSDAY

Trevor Bauer:  8 IP 7 H 1 ER 1 BB 6 K with an ERA of 5.25.  Has settled into being an even worse version of Francisco Liriano.

Carlos Santana:  1/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .244.  Santana really has been left behind in today's fantasy baseball given his all-or-nothing approach.

Josh Donaldson:  2/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .242.  Yeah not the season anticipated.

Kendrys Morales:  2/4 with 2 home runs (20 for season) while hitting .257.  Morales is really hot right now and so he should be planted firmly back in your UTIL or CI slot.

Sean Manaea:  7 IP 7 H 3 ER 0 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.82.  Manaea has been quietly solid since the beginning of May and the K rate has been impressive.

Blake Treinen:  fourth blown save with 1 ER in 1.1 IP with an ERA of 5.00.  It is like April in Washington all over again.  I guess Ryan Dull is getting the next shot.

Travis Shaw:  1/1 with his 24th HR while hitting .299.  You know you are having an insane season when you go from borderline MLB player at start of April to getting the Barry Bonds treatment in late July.

Lewis Brinson:  1/3 with his second HR while hitting .135.  Two homers since coming back up.  Strap in because I think this is going to be a fun ride.

Bryce Harper:  3/5 with 2 home runs (27 for season) while hitting .338.  Scary to think what kind of contract this guy is going to sign when free agency arrives.

Ryan Zimmerman:  2/5 with 2 home runs (22 for season) while hitting .318.  Coming into the season I thought it would take Zim until now to hit half his 22 homers.

Anthony Rendon:  2/4 with his 21st HR while hitting .317.  There was almost an entire Wrapup of home runs in this one game alone.

Max Scherzer:  6 IP 3 H 1 ER 3 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.23.  And yet with all the home runs, this guy remained a pitching maestro.

Corey Dickerson:  2/5 with his 19th HR while hitting .304.  Yeah so not happy Dickerson batted sixth and not leadoff which is where this whole fun go started back in April.

Evan Longoria:  2/5 with his 16th HR while hitting .275.  Longoria is looking like he is starting one of those patented power binges so dust him off.

Gary Sanchez:  2/5 with his 15th HR while hitting .266.  There have been lots of hot and cold spells for extended periods of time but at least the power is holding.  But everything is down across the board like I said it would.

Brett Gardner:  2/5 with his 18th HR while hitting .261.  And I never thought at this stage of the season Gardner would have more home runs than Sanchez.

J.D. Martinez:  1/4 with his 20th HR while hitting .300.  No matter where Martinez signs next season, I am buying as they guy is so damn consistent and overlooked.

Zack Godley:  7 IP 4 H 0 ER 2 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.06.  There have been some stumbles of late but Godley looks to be back on track.  Always important for a young pitcher to stem struggles which speaks to their long-term dependability.  Something Steven Matz hasn't mastered yet.

Yoan Moncada:  0/4 while hitting .111.  Second time he has struggled in the majors.  Hope he is not the next Byron Buxton but there are similarities to super athleticism but lacking pure hitting.

Jose Abreu:  2/4 with 2 home runs (18 for season) while hitting .297.  Scary how ultra-consistent this guy is.

Anthony Rizzo:  2/4 with his 24th HR while hitting .261.  What is funny though is that Abreu's and Rizzo's fantasy baseball owners will undoubtedly say there are disappointed in them.

Kyle Schwarber:  3/4 with 2 home runs (17 for season) while hitting .191.  So close to .200.  Ridiculous.

Jon Lester:  7 IP 4 H 1 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.88.  Buy Lester in June next season.

  2. Can you rank Brinson, Benintendi, Zimmer, Margot, and Altherr? Is it worth taking the chance on Brinson over those who have been up longer?
