Jake Lamb has finally found his stroke, hitting 19 doubles, 20 home runs and seven, yes seven triples, for a .612 SLG. Yet, somehow, he is not an All-Star. Well Jake Lamb, you are an All-Star in our book! His 61 RBI is good for 10th best, as is his 152 wRC+. Lamb was drafted in just 2% of Yahoo leagues.
Maikel Franco and Miguel Sano were both high on our list coming into the season, but struggled early on. However, Franco has been quietly recovering, and now has 18 HRs and 52 RBI with a .268 BA. He is hitting .450 in July with 5 HRs in 40 ABs.
Sano has been a major disappointment, and missed all of June with a hamstring injury. He has looked much better in July, owning a .282/.391/.538 triple slash.
Heating UpJosh Donaldson.
Kyle Seager has 40 TB over the last two weeks, and owns a 1.392 OPS in the month of July. Only Franco has been better, across all positions.
