Another Troy Tulowitzki injury has made him a less valuable fantasy baseball player, despite his 15 home runs and 43 RBI.  However, he is hitting .357 in July and if he can stay healthy in the 2nd half, can play a huge role on contending teams.

Eduardo Nunez and Jonathan Villar have provided us with something not many SS do - stolen bases.  They have combined for 53 SB while the next four combined have just 49.

Heating Up

Didi Gregorius has been on fire, hitting five home runs and four doubles over the last two weeks.  He hit .337 in June and currently owns a .351 BA in July.

Brandon Crawford leads all SS with 61 RBI.  That's 10th best overall.  He owns a .405/.451/.738 triple slash over the last 14 days.
