Nick Senzel:  2/6 with 2 home runs (2 for season) while hitting .235.  Already did a lengthy piece on Senzel yesterday.  He is pretty good. 

Eugenio Suarez:  2/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .231. Listen Suarez has more than proven himself to be a .270 or better hitter so patience there. 

Drew Pomeranz:  7 ER in 1.2 IP with an ERA of 5.93.  For a fleeting moment Pomeranz looked like something special while he was in San Diego but absolute garbage since. 

Pete Alonso:  0/4 while hitting .271.  The K rate is getting pretty scary of late and Alonso is now dealing with pitchers adjusting to him.  His turn to make a change. 

Hunter Renfroe:  2/4 with his 8th HR while hitting .239.  Always big power here but guys like Renfroe as we all know are a dime a dozen.

Jacob DeGrom:  7 IP 4 H 2 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.60.  No run support is just as much a theme here as the awesome ratios and strikeouts. 

Chris Paddock:  7.2 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 11 K with an ERA of 1.55.  Unbelievable.  While the Mets lineup stinks, Paddock is pitching insanely right now.  A 10.18 K/9 combined with a 2.21 BB/9 and 0.44 HR/9 is an impossible situation for any hitter to deal with so this explosion has more than a few legs to it. 

Yoan Moncada:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .293.  We are now into May and Moncada is still hitting for average with the power and speed.  Yes sir. 

Trevor Bauer:  7 ER in 5 IP with an ERA of 3.42.  Just one walk so not too concerned about this but overall Bauer is falling a bit short of expectations like literally every other Cleveland Indian. 

Domingo Santana:  1/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .269.  Still good stuff emanating here but the slipping average was expected for a guy who strikes out as much as Santana does. 

Dee Gordon:  3/4 with his third HR while hitting .297.  Gordon has exceeded all expectations so far in my book as he is still running at a high rate despite showing some negative signs there a year ago and the average has rebounded as well. 

Luke Voit:  1/4 with his 10th HR while hitting .260.  Never looking back. 

Jonathan Villar:  1/4 with his 4th HR while hitting .273.  Villar has never been a pure speedster as he has the pop to hit 15 homers which makes his overall value so much more potent than one may be led to believe. 

Eddie Rosario:  1/4 with his 12th HR while hitting .224.  I hope Rosario is not falling too much in love with the home run swing. 

Jorge Polanco:  3/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .317.  I would be so much more amped here if there was no steroid bust. 

Martin Perez:  7 IP 2 H 0 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.83.  Introducing your latest spin rate veteran career campaign.
