Equivalent Fantasy Average: July hitter wrap-up

When it comes to prevailing opinion, a lot can change in just a few months of baseball.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

We're four months into the season, and 271 guys have at least 200 plate appearances. That's a lot of dudes, and a lot of chart stuff that is going to appear lower on this page.

But for the sake of ease, let's say the top 25 hitters right now makes the top 10 percent. Sure, I could say 27 and be slightly more accurate, but because this isn't for a scholarly endeavor, and 25 is a nicer number, that's where I'm staying.

So I'm going to take a look at the top 25 hitters so far, and divide them into three categories: Expected, Unexpected, and Really Unexpected. Let's see how it breaks down.

This is the July review of offensive Equivalent Fantasy Average. If you've been around for past EFA breakdowns, welcome back. If you're new, hey, here's some information on my metric.

So, let's go to that top 25. The numbers will come later, but the names are here:

Rank Player
1 Mike Trout
2 Giancarlo Stanton
3 Jose Abreu
4 Paul Goldschmidt
5 Michael Brantley
6 Jose Altuve
7 Andrew McCutchen
8 Nelson Cruz
9 Troy Tulowitzki
10 Miguel Cabrera
11 Carlos Gomez
12 Anthony Rizzo
13 Jose Bautista
14 Adam Jones
15 Josh Donaldson
16 Todd Frazier
17 Charlie Blackmon
18 Dee Gordon
19 Edwin Encarnacion
20 Billy Hamilton
21 Melky Cabrera
22 Brett Gardner
23 Victor Martinez
24 Anthony Rendon
25 Brian Dozier

Now, let's go through it in the groups. The three tiers are divided up as follows: Expected guys were ranked in the Yahoo! preseason top 50; Unexpected ones were 51-150; Really Unexpected were 101 and higher:

Expected

Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton, Paul Goldschmidt, Andrew McCutchen, Troy Tulowitzki, Miguel Cabrera, Carlos Gomez, Jose Bautista, Adam Jones, Edwin Encarnacion

Unexpected

Jose Abreu, Jose Altuve, Nelson Cruz, Anthony Rizzo, Josh Donaldson, Billy Hamilton, Brett Gardner

Really Unexpected

Michael Brantley, Todd Frazier, Charlie Blackmon, Dee Gordon, Melky Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Anthony Rendon, Brian Dozier

So 10 of the current top 25 were guys we expected this out of; seven were guys we could see it happening for; eight were out-of-nowheres. In some ways, that stands to reason. Guys pop every year. Guys rise, and top guys fall. But the fact that it's really well balanced between the three groups kind of took me by surprise.

When I was compiling the EFAs, it felt like it was a mass of Expected guys. After all, Nelson Cruz is a quasi-MVP candidate. Victor Martinez was as hot as anyone early in the year. Todd Frazier might be the game's best third baseman so far.

This is my way of illustrating how quickly our opinion can change on a guy. Rizzo was a superstar in the making a few years ago, then he was a disappointment, then he was a midlevel guy, and all of a sudden he's a superstar.

That said, Charlie Blackmon? Whatever, man.

Big riser: After being a big disappointment through June (.205/.357/.390), Carlos Santana erupted in July, to the tune of a .313/.407/.615 slash line and eight homers in the month. It was enough for him to climb from 10th at the position in EFA to third.

Big faller: It was already a disappointing season for Joe Mauer, with a pace of career lows in almost every stat. But the fact that he's been on the DL since July 1 sealed his fate, taking him from a tie for 12th at the position to 18th.

Thoughts: When I wrote about Devin Mesoraco in midseason, one of the readers asked if I'd rank him No. 2 behind Jonathan Lucroy the rest of the way, but I'd still have Buster Posey and maybe Salvador Perez and Evan Gattis ahead of Mesoraco. I need more track record. ... Sort of like there not being as many good NFL quarterbacks as there are NFL quarterback jobs, there just aren't 30 good catchers right now, which is why Oakland having Derek Norris, John Jaso, and Stephen Vogt seems pretty unfair.

Big riser: It was more than a year ago that I wrote about Lucas Duda being a nice fantasy thought. It took him a while to follow through on that, but after a slow start to the year, he ended July at .262/.358/.506 with 19 homers, lifting him from 22nd among first basemen to 15th.

Big faller: He didn't fall apart or anything, but for a guy who's slugging .571 on the season, Victor Martinez only slugged .386 in July, and he missed 10 games. He still ranks eighth at the position, but he was fourth a month ago.

Thoughts: This list could shake up over the next month, with Paul Goldschmidt likely done for the year, and some question when Edwin Encarnacion returns. ... As disappointing as Eric Hosmer has been (sigh), Chris Davis, Billy Butler, and Joey Votto have done even worse in fantasy, and that's before even considering the absence of Prince Fielder.

45 Brandon Hicks SFG .223

Big riser: It was a rough early go for Ben Zobrist, who was hitting only .250 at the end of June and had a stint on the disabled list. but he hit .337/.427/.500 in July to bring all his numbers up. He was tied for 20th at second base a month ago, and now he's 14th.

Big faller: There wasn't a whole lot of shakeup in July. The big fallers -- Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips -- fell because of injury. But the top 10 in June are all still in the top 12 today.

Thoughts: The only preseason top-five second baseman still in the top five is Ian Kinsler, and he was fifth then and now. Jason Kipnis and Dustin Pedroia have been really disappointing; Robinson Cano and Matt carpenter a bit less so. ... There are several experiments -- Brian Roberts, Danny Espinosa, Kelly Johnson -- that didin't really work out, but the Scooter Gennett one sure seems to have.

50 Mike Olt CHC .222
51 Nick Punto OAK .218

Big riser: Well, I discussed Carlos Santana among the catchers, so here I'll go with Josh Harrison, who has really played well all season, but he just didn't play much early. Since he's gotten basically an everyday role, he's shot up from 16th at the end of June to ninth now.

Big faller: It was really only a hot weeklong stretch in early June that buoyed Lonnie Chisenhall; his season slash line is .307/.370/.483, but without that stretch it's .281/.351/.435. And he was pretty terrible in July, with a .569 OPS. It took him from eighth at the position to 12th.

Thoughts: The other candidate for "Big faller" was Pedro Alvarez, who hit .206 with only two homers in July. He's basically in a platoon with Harrison now. ... Casey McGehee has been better than anyone could have realistically guessed this year, but his complete lack of power (.071 ISO) really drags his fantasy value down. ... Chris Coghlan hasn't even played third base this year, but he retains Yahoo! eligibility. He's having his best season, though it's in limited plate appearances.

37 Nick Punto OAK .214

Big riser: It wasn't a great June for Jimmy Rollins overall -- he hit only .234 in the month -- but he did hit eight homers and steal seven bases. He's well on his way to a 20-20 season, and it moved him from 10th among shortstops to third.

Big faller: July was easily the worst month of Starlin Castro's bounceback season, as he hit only .221/.291/.260 in the month, with four doubles his only extra-base hits. It took him from sixth at shortstop to 10th.

Thoughts: Even with only 11 games played since the end of June, Troy Tulowitzki kept his hold on No. 1 at the position. ... Jean Segura didn't get back on track in June, hitting only .179/.220/.269 in the month. ... The bottom of the position is a bunch of bench guys and fill-ins -- plus Zack Cozart and Yunel Escobar, who have been abject disappointments.

Big riser: With seven homers in July, Brett Gardner doubled his season total to that point. He ended the month on a crazy hot streak, going 8-for-14 with four homers in the last three games. It brought him from a tie for 18th among outfielders to a tie for 12th.

Big faller: July wasn't bad for Brandon Moss, but he did hit only .233 with a .729 OPS for the month, both season-worst marks. He fell from 11th among outfielders to 17th.

Thoughts: Baseball is really outfield-heavy right now; outfielders comprise 12 of that top 25 way up top. ... It's funny to me that ex-Twins Denard Span and Ben Revere have the exact same EFA. ... Rajai Davis ranks well at the position because of his steals; the full-time work afford him by Austin Jackson's departure can only help. ... The Cardinals added Peter Bourjos in the offseason because of Jon Jay's mediocrity, but Jay has easily outhit Bourjos thus far. ... The Rangers expected way more out of Shin-Soo Choo, and basically everyone else on the team.
