Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a pair of walks in Monday's 4-2 win over the Red Sox.
Trout has been slumping int he month of August, hitting a mere .217 with three home runs and 10 RBI over his last 60 at-bats with Monday's multi-hit game being his first since August 9. Even with his recent struggles, Trout is arguably the best fantasy player to own up to this point, while slashing .291/.379/.560 with 27 home runs, 87 RBI, 82 runs scored and 12 steals through 464 at-bats.

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
