Giancarlo Stanton , New York Yankees 

In the midst of a seven-game hit streak within the chart above, he owns a robust .323 isolated power and .504 weighted on-base average (wOBA) in it. Prior to Thursday, Stanton owned six of the top ten hardest hit batted ball events in the majors. And he gets the Tigers staff which boasts the highest bullpen ERA in the majors this weekend? Giddy up. 

Kolten Wong , Milwaukee

Imagine being frustrated by his slow start hindered by an oblique issue and dropping the Brewers lead-off hitter. He's hit safely in all six games back during which he's accrued a plate appearance, including two home runs and four RBI. Left-handed hitters thrive in Milwaukee and this seems like a match made in heaven, especially given his defense at second base. 

Nick Solak , Texas

Perhaps shrouded by fantasy players wondering where his teammate's power went (Joey Gallo ), Solak's launched three home runs over his last seven contests driving in five runs. He's slashing .370/.414/.778 with a .407 isolated power in them. Pretty, pretty good. 


Eugenio Suárez , Cincinnati

Maybe returning to Great American Ballpark wakes up his slumbering bat, or the team needs to sacrifice a chicken, but something needs to give. He's hitless his last 23 plate appearances with a slash line like Mr. Blutarsky's GPA in Animal House, zero. Yes, .000/.000/.000 with a negative 100 weighted runs created plus (wRC+) and a 43.5 percent strikeout rate. 

Josh Bell , Washington

Added to protect Juan Soto in the lineup, Bell's hitting .053/.100/.211 with a .158 isolated power and 35 strikeout percentage. Maybe Pittsburgh knew something we did not? 

Aaron Hicks , New York Yankees

He's sure to rebound since Hicks heads to my bench in Tout Wars. Over his last 25 plate appearances, he's slashing .087/.120/.348 with two home runs, both in Cleveland, and a 32 percent strikeout rate. Plus, he lazily chased a double by Austin Hays on Thursday allowing Cedric Mullins to score a go ahead run from first base. Detroit may wake him up, but it's been a rough start by Hicks. 

Positive Migration to the Mean

Freddie Freeman , Atlanta

First, he heads to Dunedin for a weekend slate with Toronto which plays small for left-handed power hitters. Freeman's due for some positive results: 

  • .236 batting average vs. a .316 xBA (plus 80 points)

  • .506 slugging vs. a .691 xSLG (plus 185 points)

  • .375 wOBA vs. a .441 xwOBA (plus 66 points)

Aaron Judge , New York Yankees

As noted above, the Tigers arrive in New York fresh from a doubleheader sweep in Chicago, a volatile bullpen and giving up hard hit batted ball events. This sets up well for Judge who seems to be turning the corner: 

  • .260 batting average vs. a .346 xBA (plus 86 points)

  • .494 slugging vs. a .650 xSLG (plus 156 points)

  • .381 wOBA vs. a .458 xwOBA (plus 77 points)

Kyle Tucker , Houston

For those searching for a buy low player in trades, kick the tires with whoever has Tucker on their roster in your league. He's due for some better days ahead in May: 

  • .185 batting average vs. a 296 xBA (plus 111 points)

  • .380 slugging vs. a .576 xSLG (plus 196 points)

  • .253 wOBA vs. a .369 xwOBA (plus 65 points)
