We were entertained by the kings of swing this week. They stepped up to the plate and forced the fans to stand. Here’s your standing ovation for a great week of fantasy production, gentlemen.



1. 1B Adrian Gonzalez, SD

San Diego’s power house hit four home runs in four consecutive games this week. He pushed nine of his teammates across the plate and touched home four times himself. He hit .348 AVG and had a perfect fielding percentage.

Gonzalez is making himself look like a Porsche on the market and will likely be traded before the All-Star break.


2. 1B Kendry Morales, LAA

Kendry Morales is proving last year’s numbers were no fluke. Morales cleaned the bases three times this week. His 10 RBI and three walks gave the slugger a .400 AVG.

The Angels took a victory against the Yankees this Friday mostly because of the contributions of Morales.


3. OF Austin Kearns, Cle


Kearns is hitting .435 with 23 plate appearances this week. He hit two bombs and knocked in nine runs. He also secured two thefts, making Kearns a jack-of-all-trades this week.


4. 3B Andy LaRoche Pit

LaRoche is hitting a phenomenal .667 AVG this week.

The Pirates are moving him up to the second spot while he is on fire.


5. 2B Robinson Cano, NYY

The New York Yankees second baseman is hitting .571 AVG this week. Cano garnered one home run, four RBI, one walk, and one stolen base.

Cano is starting to look like the American League’s best second baseman and living up to New York’s expectations thus far.


6. SS Ryan Theriot, ChC

Ryan Theriot is hitting .500 AVG with 34 at-bats. He hit six RBI, had two walks, six runs, and grabbed one stolen base.

7. C Miguel Olivo, Col

The Rockies catcher blasted three balls over the wall this week. Olivo drove in eight runs and ended the week with a .412 AVG.

Olivo has taken Iannetta’s job and is now considered the starting catcher for Colorado. Iannetta has been sent down to Triple-A, so it looks like Olivo will be the man behind the plate for sometime.


8. OF Colby Rasmus, StL

Colby Rasmus turned around his early slump and turned in a decent week.

The St. Louis outfielder hit .500 AVG this week and induced four walks. He knocked in six RBI and scored six runs. He hit three home runs this week in only 20 to the batter box.


9. 1B/3B Pablo Sandoval, SF

“Kung Fu Panda” is back. Sandoval hit for .500 AVG this week in 22 at-bats. He hit one dinger with three RBI and three extra-base hits.


10. DH Vladimir Guerrero, Tex

The Rangers designated hitter knocked one into the stands and hit in eight RBI. Guerrero had four extra-base hits and five runs.

Guerrero actually played right field this week because of Nelson Cruz’s injury. If he plays enough on the green he will be eligible for OF in some leagues making his fantasy value increase.
