Ian Kinsler:  3/6 with this third HR while hitting .174.  You got to hand it to Kinsler with regards to his career going so much longer than we all anticipated.

Wil Myers:  2/5 with his sixth HR while hitting .248.  Typical Myers who is not hitting for average but also is doing his power/speed thing with little fanfare. 

Matt Strahm:  6 IP 8 H 2 ER 0 BB 6 K with an ERA of 3.03.  Funny thing happened with Strahm in that he was the toast of spring training and then all it took was one lousy start to begin the year for his ownership to plummet drastically.  Since ten though, Strahm has been very good like in spring training but yet no one wants him.  Fantasy baseball players are weird folks.

Noah Syndergaard:  9 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 10 K with an ERA of 5.02.  Yeah so I did say last week to buy low on Syndergaard.  How is that working out now?  The guy will be just fine.  

David Dahl:  3/5 with his third HR while hitting .333.  Man if Dahl could ever just stay on the field he could really be something else.  Alas, his per game numbers are swell as expected this season so keep him a fixture in your lineup.

Nolan Arenado:  3/5 with his 9th HR while hitting .297.  Arenado getting to 40 homers is almost as sure as the Tampa Bay Rays muddling their closer situation.

Raimel Tapia:  3/5 with his 4th HR while hitting .286.  Tapia should have been added last week or even the week before so check your league's wire one last time since are now into Month 2 of him hitting like this.

Ryan Braun:  2/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .206.  Yeah Braun is officially old as he fully graduates into an all-or-nothing home run guy.

Jon Gray:  5 ER in 5.2 IP with 9 K while logging an ERA of 4.22.  As maddening as ever.  At least brother from another mother Carlos Rodon is out injured for awhile and can't hurt his owners for the time being.

Alex Bregman:  1/4 with his sixth HR while hitting .260.  I said the other day Bregman shoul dbe a top five guy from here on out and he is certainly off to a nice start making that prediction look good.  

Jose Berrios:  7 IP 7 H 2 ER 0 BB 5 K with an ERA of 2.91.  Along with a 0.97 WHIP, Berrios has realized his ace potential already.  

Brandon Lowe:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .303.  Well this has been an unexpected surprise.  

Charlie Morton:  6.2 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.52.  Years ago we had Dan Haren who pitched like a power ace for the first four months of the season before fatigue did him in for August and September.  Morton follows the same endurance path so hold until July.  Even now if you get a swell offer for Morton, I would consider selling.  

Stephen Strasburg:  6.2 IP 6 H 1 ER 2 BB 9 K with an ERA of 3.45.  It takes a lot of patience to own Strasburg on a yearly basis but the drop in velocity doesn't seem to be hurting him much.

Andrew Benintendi:  2/4 with his third HR while hitting .273.  It may seen on a daily basis that Benintendi is disappointing but his deliberate pace to 20/20 is on track.  

Mike Trout:  2/4 with his 7th HR while hitting .312.  As someone who owns Trout, it was certainly a bit of a wait for a home run the last week or so.
