Greg Bird:  1/3 with his second HR while hitting .241.  Bird is very capable of being a top 12 fantasy baseball first baseman on his power alone and plentiful RBI opportunities in the stacked New York Yankees lineup but for now use conservatively in the UTIL or CI spot.

Gleyber Torres:  1/3 with his 10th HR in Game 1 while hitting .307.  Just think next season how even more impressive the numbers will be when he hits towards the top of the order.

Austin Romine:  1/3 with his 4th HR while hitting .373.  If you own Gary Sanchez in a 12 team league or deeper, back him up with his real-life understudy as Romine has been killing it whenever he gets to play. 

Luis Severino:  8 IP 4 H 1 ER 0 BB 10 K with an ERA of 2.20.  The fact that Severino is dominating like this while calling the AL East his division gives him an AL Cy Young case over the Astros threesome. 

Aaron Judge:  0/9 with 8 strikeouts while hitting .276.  I think Judge just struck out again.  Boy Judge pretty much had the worst day ever for a major league hitter. 

Giancarlo Stanton:  1/3 with his 13th HR in Game 2 while hitting .248.  This is one day where Stanton's fantasy baseball owners didn't wish they took Judge instead. 

Salvador Perez:  2/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .245.  Those days of Perez hitting for average are well into the past which is annoying but the power has remained as consistent as the sun coming up in the morning. 

Justin Upton:  3/4 with his 13th HR while hitting .244.  You wouldn't believe how much Upton hate mail I get on Twitter but like I said the other day, this is par for the course here in terms of the drastic swings in production week-to-week.  By the end of the season you will look at the totality of his numbers and be like "wow he was actually pretty good."

Nick Tropeano:  5 ER in 4.2 IP with an ERA of 4.35.  I told anyone who would listen not to bother here as Tropeano is simply nothing but a mediocre pitcher who may catch a run where he throws well for a start or two. 

Eric Hosmer:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .293.  Whether it has been in K.C. or San Diego, what we are seeing is typical good but not great work from Hosmer on the offensive side of things. 

Framil Reyes:  1/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .236.  Another guy who has the tools down pat in terms of power and speed but whose overall ceiling is hurt by contact/average woes. 

Cory Spangenberg:  2/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .188.  See above.  Man the Padres have a ton of these guys. 

Andrew McCutchen:  1/5 with his 5th HR while hitting .246.  Maybe it is now June and not May when McCutchen saves his gross to this point season. 

Nick Hundley:  1/1 with his 6th HR while hitting .267.  Underrated every season as we all reflexively look for a catcher with more flash.

Zack Godley:  7 ER in 3.1 IP with an ERA of 5.12. This is the kind of outing where if you are a Godley owner, you either bench him until the cobwebs collect or your cut him outright.  I won't blame you for undertaking either option.
