Latest Update Ian Desmond goes 5-for-5, hits 17th home run   Tue Jul, 22, 06:44 AM

Desmond had himself a monster game on Monday night, and is now riding an eight-game hit streak that was started back on July 9. He is now slashing .253/.302/.445 with 17 home runs, 62 RBI and 10 stolen bases through 371 at-bats, but 114 strikeouts have him sitting on a 30.7 strikeout rate. Even with a lot of swing and misses, Desmond remains one of the top options at the shortstop as long as his power stroke holds up the rest of the way. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Possesses superb size for the shortstop spot and is a good athlete with a strong arm and excellent, raw power. Rangy and fast, he possesses all-around ability.
Flaws:  : Needs more work on his discipline (both as a hitter and as a base-runner), since he strikes out way too much and doesn't draw nearly enough walks at the plate.
