Aaron judge:  2/4 with his 29th HR while hitting .331.  So nice to see a slugger who no one actually thinks is on steroids.

Justin Smoak:  2/5 with his 23rd HR while hitting .300.  So now we know why Smoak was such a high first round draft pick.

Kendrys Morales:  1/5 with his 16th HR while hitting .256.  Morales has been very solid no doubt but I can guess that his fantasy baseball owners expected a wee bit more in Toronto.

Kevin Pillar:  2/3 with his 10th HR while hitting .255.  Boy has the whole Pillar story taking a nosedive.  Both on and off the field.

Marco Estrada:  6 ER in 4.2 IP with an ERA of 5.17.  Watching Estrada now is like watching a horror movie where the villain gets it handed to him at the end.  Not saying Estrada is a villain but the regression fairies are more than getting their revenge for him flaunting the ERA's and WHIP's in their faces the last two years.

Michael Pineda:  5 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 4.39.  So much for Pineda finally turning a corner this season.  Even with dough on the line as a pending free agent, Pineda is still the same inconsistent hurler that drives everyone in the fantasy baseball community insane.

Dellin Betances:  1 ER with 4 walks in .1 IP with an ERA of 3.29.  Whether it is Steve Blass disease or a tired arm,. Betances is a huge mess.  Since he is not getting saves at the moment, Betances needs to be benched in all formats.  My personal opinion is that Betances is paying for all those high inning totals the last three seasons.

Mallex Smith:  4/4 with his 10th SB while hitting .333.  Damn me for not picking up Smith when I had the chance.  Speed to burn.

Todd Frazier:  1/3 with his 16th HR while hitting .215.  Yeah Frazier is now your classic sell out for the fences.

Matt Davidson:  1/4 with his 18th HR while hitting .247.  You are more excited in AL-only formats since he carries a gross average but Davidson is having a heck of a season.

Gerrit Cole:  6 IP 7 H 2 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 4.43.  Its like this guy doesn't know if he wants to suck or be good.

Keon Broxton:  1/3 with his 14th HR while hitting .239.  Like with Rougned Odor at second base, Broxton is having a very good year when you look past the average.  Yes that category counts though so demerits.

George Springer:  3/5 with 2 RBI while hitting .300.  We always said we could look past the loss of steals if Springer could hit for average.  Check!  And an MVP campaign is underway.

Ender Inciarte:  1/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .305.  No I am not surprised by anything Inciarte is doing.  Go back to 2015 and see what I wrote.  Yup.

Rougned Odor:  1/1 with his 16th HR while hitting .216.  Left with a bruised hand from HBP but should be fine. I still think a buy low is on order here as Odor is going to hit 30 home runs at SECOND BASE but yet the narrative will be he went bust.

Xander Boagerts:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .308.  Wonderful pure hitter without debate but I am also starting to wonder if Bogaerts is ever going to consistently generate power.

Andrew Cashner:  7 IP 3 H 0 ER 3 BB 4 K with an ERA of 3.54.  Early in the season Cashner looked at Ervin Santana's numbers are said to himself, "there is someone (read seemingly washed up veteran made good) who I can emulate.

Ervin Santana:  9 IP 7 H 2 ER 2 BB 5 K with an ERA of 2.99.  Speaking of Santana, in the midst of his monster out-of-the-blue season is him bringing back the art of the complete game.

Giancarlo Stanton:  3/4 with 2 home runs (23 for season) while hitting .271.  Home Run Derby here we come.

Mike Moustakas:  3/5 with his 25th HR while hitting .275.  Home run are so plentiful that we are actually at the point this season where qualifying a big season is becoming more difficult when compared to the league.

Jean Segura:  2/5 with his sixth HR and 9th SB while hitting .343.  It really makes you wonder how incredible the numbers could have been if Segura had not spent two stints already on the DL.

Mike Zunino:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .234.  Zunino has not changed as a hitter as the average has starting sinking as predicted but in terms of power, few catchers can make match him.
