Andrew Benintendi:  1/4 with his 12th HR while hitting .297.  The Boston Red Sox not only have one but TWO five-tool outfielders who will be first-round picks next season.

Rafael Devers:  1/5 with his 10th HR while hitting .231.  A 27.2 K.9 shows the youth at work here and so Devers likely needs the remainder of this season to work toward being more of a stud in 2019.

Ozzie Albies:  1/5 with his 16th HR while hitting .255.  Albies picking up with the long ball again and fighting his way through his first extended slump of the season which is a tremendous overall sign he can maintain his terrific level of production from April and early May.

Freddie Freeman:  1/2 with his 13th HR while hitting .341.  You simply can't get this guy out right now.  Even Joey Votto is envious of the hitting ability.

Mike Foltynewicz:  5 IP 2 H 0 ER 0 BB 6 K with an ERA of 2.16.  What might have been if Folty hadn't been forced out early with a triceps issue.  Bigger picture is that he was excellent yet again in this unbelievable breakout season and he is in line to make his next start.

Didi Gregorious:  2/4 with 2 home runs (13 for season) while hitting .248.  I feel like these are the first two HITS Didi has had since April.

Scott Kingery:  1/2 with his third HR while hitting.215.  The Phillies and Kingery's fantasy baseball owners forced this from the get-go this season with disastrous initial results but the kid wouldn't be the first guy to come back and play much better the second time around in letting the letting do the talking.

Aaron Nola:  6.2 IP 4 H 1 ER 0 BB 10 K with an ERA of 2.27.  By the end of the season at this rate, we could be saying Nola is on the verge of top 5 SP status.  Would you take him over Madison Bumgarner or Noah Syndergaard?  The answer is yes.

Wilson Ramos:  1/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .284.  I always like to needle the Buster Posey owners that you could have had a much cheaper value and more production catcher in this guy.  I should say the same thing to those who own Wilson Contreras.

Yoan Moncada:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .232.  This guy just really knows how to test patience.  So much potential but so many damn whiffs.

Chase Anderson:  7 IP 1 H 0 ER 2 BB 6 K with an ERA of 4.13.  Anderson has not lived up to 2017 but I never thought he would anyways so I am fine with the SP 4 production.

Eric Hosmer:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .286.  Hosmer's home run rate is slightly up this year which is quite exciting for the worm killer.  Will take anything we can get there.

Carlos Correa:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .268.  Correa is starting to feel like that top pick you invest in every season but still leave disappointed in for one reason (no steal) or another (increase in K's).

Evan Gattis:  2/4 with his 11th HR while hitting .239.  The fact Gattis plays every day is always a huge plus for a catcher-eligible player but now that he is actually hitting, even better.

Mike Trout:  3/5 with 2 home runs (23 for season) while hitting .310.  My father was the biggest Mickey Mantle fan there is and he has said to me numerous times this is as closer to the Yankee legend that he has ever seen.

Mitch Haniger:  2/3 with 2 home runs (15 for season) while hitting .267.  I have had to bring back a lot of Haniger owners off the ledge the last few weeks.  Let this outing speak for itself in terms of what to do with the guy.  Leave him alone.

Ryon Healy:  2/4 with 2 home runs (12 for season) while hitting .245.  Three home runs in two games now for Healy who I said at the start of the season could quietly be one of the more production UTIL or CI bats in fantasy baseball.

Starling Marte:  2/5 with his 8th HR while hitting .286.  The benchmark in homers I wanted from Marte this season was 20.  A bit behind the pace but still hopeful.  Everything else has been very good.

Trevor Williams:  3 ER in 3 IP with an ERA of 4.38.  Garbage.
