Mike Trout

CF

$ 57

+$ 1

The 24-year-old doesn't know how to slow down. His two consecutive HR put him at 16 on the year, but his .552 SLG is his career low somehow.

2

=

Clayton Kershaw

SP

$ 53

-$ 2

He finally lost against the Pirates, his second of the season. I don't think anybody is worried, and the lefty's current K/BB is 16.11, which would easily crush Phil Hughes' single season record of 11.6 in 2014.

Manny Machado

3B,SS

$ 52

+$ 4

He finally served his due, and he is blowing out his anger with his bats. Hitting .444 since the return.

Jose Altuve

2B

$ 52

Picked up 3 HR in his last 6 games, and he continues to build on to his perfect 5-cat season.

5

=

Bryce Harper

CF,RF

$ 46

His season isn't as dreamy as everyone expected so far. His .249 BA is his career worst, but his .872 OPS is actually his best except his MVP season.

6

=

Paul Goldschmidt

1B

$ 43

-$ 1

He is leading the league in OBP, and his BA is finally came up above .300.

7

1

Starling Marte

LF,CF

$ 41

-$ 1

His power is little disappointing, but his .162 ISO is better than his last year's, and his 19 doubles should start to clear the wall little more often during the latter half.

8

Nolan Arenado

3B

$ 40

+$ 3

NL leader of HR and RBI, and he even doubled his BB% from last year.

9

=

Miguel Cabrera

1B

$ 40

His .892 OPS is his worst 2008. The Legendary Miggi is certainly aging, but he is still better than the rest of the league.

10

2

Max Scherzer

SP

$ 39

He added 2 more HR and continues to lead the league with 20. Look like his HR issue isn't going to go away, but 11.6 K/9 is just too valuable.

11

-1

Anthony Rizzo

1B

$ 38

-$ 2

The Italian slugger opened up the month with .238 BA, but he is now averaging .283 with 17 HR. He is no doubt a stud, but his 17 SB of last year looks fluky as of now.

12

-5

Buster Posey

C,1B

$ 38

-$ 4

No HR in his last 18 games, but he has hit .343 .498 .433. The former MVP is having a rough year, but his worst numbers are still easily better than most of other catchers.

13

1

Mookie Betts

CF,RF

$ 38

The superhero only needs 2 more HR to catch up his last year's total. His 16.5% HR/FB is little too high to be trusted, but the Fenway's leadoff does everything well anyway.

14

5

Charlie Blackmon

LF,CF

$ 38

+$ 6

Despite spending some times in DL, he is on pace to break his career high in HR (19 in 2014). His owner probably wants to see him running more.

15

1

Ryan Braun

LF,RF

$ 37

+$ 1

His June has been little slow, but he is still hitting .324 .382 .542. He is still playing his best baseball, but his owners should continue to monitor his injury/trade situation.

16

-5

Xander Bogaerts

SS

$ 36

-$ 3

The Hit leader of ML needs only 1 more HR to reach double digit in both HR and SB.

17

-4

Kris Bryant

3B,LF,RF

$ 36

-$ 3

People don't talk about Kris anymore, because he is already too consistent to be interesting. He leads NL in R, and the only NL player to have 50+ in both R and RBI.

18

-1

Carlos Correa

SS

$ 35

-$ 1

His sophomore season has been far below people's expectation, but the talented superstar hit 4 HR in last 9 games.

19

-1

Jose Fernandez

SP

$ 33

+$ 1

His 94.2 IP is already the most since his rookie year. He is the best K pitcher in the league without a doubt, but now is time to prove his durability.

20

3

Jonathan Lucroy

C,1B

$ 33

+$ 3

If there is anyone who can snap Posey's dominance in Fantasy catching, this is the guy.

21

12

Josh Donaldson

3B

$ 31

+$ 4

The reigning MVP hit .372 in June, and now Steamer is finally starting to notice his baseball skills.

22

3

Madison Bumgarner

SP

$ 30

+$ 1

He just lost against the Phillies, and his 3 ER was his highest since April 15th. He certainly deserves a CY Young, but sadly the honor has only room for one.

23

-2

Andrew McCutchen

CF

$ 30

-$ 1

Cutch's worst season continues. He is hitting .198 in June with only 3 HR and 1 SB. His power is still there, but every other aspect of his game has declined significantly.

24

3

Noah Syndergaard

SP

$ 30

+$ 1

He 10.9 K/9 is 4th best in the league while 1.19 BB/9 is 3rd best. He isn't afraid to throw strikes for obvious reasons, but his bone spur issue needs to be monitored.

25

12

Andrew Miller

RP

$ 30

+$ 4

The lanky lefty isn't a closer, but he is throwing the best stuff in his life.

26

-2

Chris Sale

SP

$ 30

4.63 ERA in his last 7 games, but his K is back up to 9.47 K/9 in that span. His decreased K-rate along with lower velocity is still a concern, but he certainly knows how to get the outs.

27

-5

Francisco Lindor

SS

$ 30

6 HR in June. The sophomore SS is hitting 12 HR, 10 SB, and .313. He is one of the best two-way player in the league.

28

-2

Christian Yelich

LF,CF

$ 30

His slash line is still pretty, but he only added 1 HR and 1 SB in June. His lack of counting stats is already a well-known issue.

29

=

Carlos Gonzalez

RF

$ 29

He is ready for the summer in Colorado. Hitting 11 of his 16 HR at home along with .343 BA.

30

17

Salvador Perez

C

$ 28

+$ 5

Salvador is alive with 5 HR .329 in June. The free-swinging catcher is quietly having a career season.

31

-3

David Ortiz

1B

$ 28

The AL leader of 2B, OBP, SLG. He has a great chance win an MVP in his farewell season.

32

-1

Stephen Strasburg

SP

$ 28

He made his regular trip to DL. He somehow dislocated his ribcage while lifting weights, and this shouldn't surprise anyone.

33

2

Wil Myers

1B,CF

$ 28

+$ 1

The hottest hitter in June only needs 40 more AB to reach his career high.

34

-14

Robinson Cano

2B

$ 27

-$ 5

His HR numbers are down in June, but he is still very consistent otherwise. He hasn't missed a game this season, and consistency has been his middle name for the last 10 years.

35

-5

Daniel Murphy

1B,2B,3B

$ 27

-$ 2

He wasn't going to hit near .400 forever, and his BA finally came down to .349 after hitting .241 in June. He still leads the MLB in BA, and he only needs 2 more HR to reach his career high.

36

-2

Jake Arrieta

SP

$ 27

Finally lost 2 games in June to prove his human-ness, but 1.74 ERA is still the best in the league.

37

-5

Giancarlo Stanton

RF

$ 27

-$ 1

Showing some life with .371 in last 9 games, but he has a long way to go to pay back his owners. His June K rate is still worrisome 35%.

38

-2

Corey Kluber

SP

$ 26

He leads AL in FIP (2.84), but 16th in ERA. His owners are probably used to this arrangement by now.

39

4

Jose Abreu

1B

$ 26

+$ 1

Finally hitting some baseballs in June with .310 .357 .563. His owners have to accept his diminished power, but he still plays in RHB's heaven, and he could be a solid (not an elite) bat.

40

2

Rougned Odor

2B

$ 26

+$ 1

He walked only 7 times this season, but it barely affects our fake games.

41

3

George Springer

CF,RF

$ 25

+$ 1

Not so sure if the leadoff is a right role for him, but he at least started running more. 3 SB in June, which doubled his season total.

42

-2

Jon Lester

SP

$ 25

He has been well-known slow starter, and his not-so-slow start is now overshadowed by his amazing June. 4 Win 1.46 in 5 starts.

43

-4

David Price

SP

$ 24

-$ 1

He leads AL in K, but his HR woes aren't stopping. He was homered in his every start since May 18th (but he somehow put up decent 3.50 ERA).

44

7

Hanley Ramirez

1B,LF

$ 24

+$ 2

He slammed 3 HR in his last 5, and his numbers are still hanging on to the Fantasy-relevancy.

45

1

Eric Hosmer

1B

$ 24

His power numbers are little sluggish in June, but HR is just a bonus feature for the 26-year-old breakout star.

46

11

Kenley Jansen

RP

$ 23

+$ 2

Since his last BS against the Giants, he is scoreless (1 hit) in his 6 outings. His 1.2 BB/9 is the second best among anyone with more than 10 SV this year (Hector Rondon 1.1 BB/9)

47

8

Adam Jones

CF

$ 23

+$ 2

Showalter's experiment is working. Jones is crushing the baseball as a leadoff with 10 HR and .317, and he is BA is up from .234 to .265 in June.

48

NEW

Jonathan Villar

3B,SS

$ 23

He leads the league is SB by a large margin, and he also owns little power with good BA. The Astros gave him to the Brewers for free of charge, but the club is well-known for its charitable work anyway.

49

50

Yadier Molina

C

$ 23

+$ 8

Don't expect any power (1 HR so far this season), but he regularly hits high in the order, and his multiple singles can produce some good numbers.

50

4

Yoenis Cespedes

LF,CF

$ 23

+$ 1

Only few can call .315 .378 .493 month as a slow month, and Yoenis is one of them.

51

-6

Justin Upton

LF,CF

$ 23

-$ 1

He has been showing some sign of life, but he simply crushed the hope of his owners by hitting .150 in his last 6 games. The only positive sign is that he was only struck out 4 times in 24 PA in that span.

52

-11

Ian Kinsler

2B

$ 23

-$ 3

.250 with 3 HR in June isn't as good as his previous months, but the 34-year-old veteran is still exceeding everybody's expectation.

53

3

Ian Desmond

SS,LF,CF

$ 22

+$ 2

He is 6th in WAR among the hitters, and no one knew this was coming.

54

-2

Matt Carpenter

1B,2B,3B

$ 22

His late power-boom isn't going anywhere, and he even cut down his K-rate from last year, which helped bringing his average up to .300.

55

-6

Gregory Polanco

LF,RF

$ 22

-$ 1

He is having a relatively slow June, but his OBP is still .353 despite his .262 BA.

56

-3

Zack Greinke

SP

$ 21

He looks like his vintage-self in June with 1.47 ERA in 5 games, but his K-rate is down.

57

25

Freddie Freeman

1B

$ 21

+$ 4

The 26-year-old hit .348 and 5 HR in June, and now he suddenly has a legit chance have a career year.

58

26

Brandon Belt

1B,LF

$ 21

+$ 5

As long as he wears the Giants uniform, he will never be a HR-king, but his current .306 .408 .533 line is a well-deserved one.

59

4

Lorenzo Cain

CF

$ 21

+$ 1

His owner can swallow his 0 HR in June, but 0 SB is a different story. He only stole 6 bases this year, and he doesn't seem to be interested in running any more.

60

-1

Johnny Cueto

SP

$ 21

He finally had a bad outing against the Phillies (6 ER), but he still lasted 6 innings. He tied for the Win leader in NL, and his 115.1 IP is only behind Kershaw the almighty.

61

11

Dellin Betances

RP

$ 21

+$ 2

2.87 ERA is unfair for someone with 16.35 K/9.

62

-4

Adrian Beltre

3B

$ 20

-$ 1

The veteran hasn't homered in his last 15 games, but there is obviously nothing to worry about the future HoF.

63

12

Edwin Encarnacion

1B

$ 20

+$ 2

He is still hitting only .255, but 9 HR and 26 RBI in June has put him on the RBI leader board.

64

22

Jean Segura

2B,SS

$ 20

+$ 4

He is done with hitting HR, but he has 13 SB and .311 BA, and he plays both infield spots.

65

1

Victor Martinez

1B

$ 20

+$ 1

The 37-year-old DH has 6 HR in June, and .300 BA is pretty much a guarantee for V-Mart.

66

-6

J.T. Realmuto

C

$ 20

-$ 1

He looks comfortable at his .302 BA, and he also added couple HR/SB in June.

67

-17

Joey Votto

1B

$ 20

-$ 2

Only 2 HR in June, but he cut down is K-rate and putting up a pretty slash. Read More.

68

5

Melky Cabrera

LF

$ 19

+$ 1

I know this ranking won't convince you to add him, but he is hitting .297 .348 .467 with 8 HR and 30+ R/RBI.

69

5

Craig Kimbrel

RP

$ 19

+$ 1

The Red Sox has cooled off recently, and Kimbrel isn't having the most SV opportunities, but 13.5 K/9 and 0.83 WHIP shows the closer's continued dominance at Fenway.

70

-3

Chris Davis

1B,RF

$ 19

He added 8 HR and .280 in June. His season is somewhat disappointing so far, but he was hitting only 15 HR with .233 by this time last year before he went off to finish the rest of the season with 32 HR in 88 games.

71

-10

Trevor Story

SS

$ 19

-$ 2

NL strikeout king's Cinderella story is over, and his high K profile makes him tough to utilize Colorado's thin air fully. His power is legit, however, and his owners won't find a better HR-swinging SS.

72

-2

Matt Holliday

1B,LF

$ 19

He already hit 14 HR, which proves that the 36-year-old is fully healthy. His .254 is little low, but BA is the one area where the veteran never failed in his 15-year career.

73

-2

Carlos Carrasco

SP

$ 19

His K is down and he owns ugly 4.22 FIP, but he just shut out the Tigers, and 2.73 ERA should make his owners happy. He will be fine as his HR number is normalized.

74

7

Josh Harrison

2B,3B,LF,RF

$ 19

+$ 2

The versatile infielder is more aggressive on the base path than ever, and his average should be safe at current .286. His speed and position eligibility should be a valuable commodity.

75

2

Nelson Cruz

RF

$ 18

+$ 1

His power has declined a little, but it's still good enough to hit 9 HR in June.

76

-7

Ben Revere

LF,CF,RF

$ 18

-$ 1

His first two months haven't been pretty, but his legs finally got to work. 5 SB in June (he just added 3 more while I'm writing this), and expect him to return to his norm soon.

77

6

DJ LeMahieu

2B

$ 18

+$ 1

He isn't running much this year, but he is only 1 shy of his career high in HR.

78

-16

Mark Trumbo

1B,LF,RF

$ 18

-$ 3

His BA has been slowly coming off as expected, but he is leading the league with 22 HR, and .279 is still more than enough.

79

11

Zach Britton

RP

$ 17

+$ 2

He leads the AL with 23 SV, and he hasn't allowed any run since the beginning of May.

80

12

Jacob deGrom

SP

$ 17

+$ 2

His velocity is slowly improving, and he now recorded 11 K/9 in June. Maybe there wasn't anything to worry about deGrominator after all.

81

-3

Jason Kipnis

2B

$ 17

Kip isn't doing anything special to be noticed, but he has cut his K% in June down to his career level. He has been displaying the best power swing since 2013, and his BA has a little room to go up if he can keep his K down.

82

-14

Dustin Pedroia

2B

$ 17

-$ 2

Pedroia's HR stopped at 7 since the beginning of June, but he kept his BA high at .297 along with 2 SB. When the Red Sox heat up once again, Petey has potential to be back on track for his best season since 2011.

83

-19

Jason Heyward

CF,RF

$ 17

-$ 3

The good news is that his 3 of 4 HR came in June, but he also hit only .258. He also stopped stealing since the end of May. He better play a freakish defense to prove his 184m contract.

84

5

Albert Pujols

1B

$ 16

+$ 1

We can't expect him to hit for high BA anymore, but only 3 HR in June should disappoint his owners. His power is obviously still there, and his owners need to be patient.

85

15

Evan Gattis

C,LF

$ 16

+$ 2

His .219 BA is what his owners need to bear to tap into his extraordinary power as a catcher, but the arrival of A.J. Reed could eat into his playing time.

86

-7

Corey Seager

SS

$ 16

-$ 1

The rookie SS is as good as advertised. He possesses enormous power and he can also swing for average, so simply enjoy the ride.

87

=

Matt Harvey

SP

$ 16

He is back with 2.25 ERA in his last 5 games, but he only managed to get 7.03 K/9. His good streak probably have won many managers' hearts, but he isn't the same Harvey. Not a bad time to sell high.

88

-40

Todd Frazier

3B

$ 16

-$ 7

21 HR with 6 SB is a rare commodity, but his already low BA is still heading south. He hit .154 in June, and now he is barely hanging onto .200.

89

-24

Anthony Rendon

2B,3B

$ 16

-$ 4

He is settling down as a double digit HR SB infielder with .250 BA, which is playable in the most leagues, but he shouldn't be considered as an elite any more.

90

-5

Kyle Seager

3B

$ 15

-$ 1

He has hit .229 in June, and his BA is down to .259. He was simply correcting his season stat to match his career numbers.

91

NEW

Aroldis Chapman

RP

$ 15

+$ 2

The lefty Cuban Missile should obviously be ranked higher once Steamer recognizes that Miller and he don't share the closer duty at Bronx.

92

4

Jacoby Ellsbury

CF

$ 15

It won't be long we stop seeing his names on this ranking. He isn't hitting any HR, and he also recorded only 1 SB in June.

93

NEW

Hector Rondon

RP

$ 15

+$ 1

Only 13 SV on the season, but he owns amazing K-BB, and the SV should come sooner or later for the closer of WS-favorite Cubs.

94

-3

Chris Archer

SP

$ 15

-$ 1

Even at 94 mph, his diminished velocity has been hurting him as he relies on his below-average changeup way too often. His K-numbers are still good, but don't expect him to return to his last year's dominance.

95

NEW

Matt Kemp

RF

$ 15

He hit .337 in June to raise his BA from .229 to .262. He isn't a base stealing treat anymore, but his power is still legit, and he can be valuable if he can keep his BA right here.

96

-1

Dallas Keuchel

SP

$ 15

-$ 1

He is tied for the most ER with 60, and the only thing he can do at this point is to eat innings, which is even worse for his Rotisserie owners.

97

-9

Ben Zobrist

2B,LF

$ 15

-$ 1

He isn't too hot anymore as he only added 2 HR along with .189 BA in June, but he still gets on-base, and the rest of Cubbies can help him to score.

98

NEW

Stephen Piscotty

1B,LF,RF

$ 14

+$ 2

He is proving his rookie season is anything but a fluke. He isn't outstanding in any area, but he is versatile and he hits either 2nd or 4th in the order.

99

NEW

Brian Dozier

2B

$ 14

+$ 2

Dozier added 5 HR with .344 in June, and he is back on the radar. He only struck out 13% in that span, and he might be able to keep his current line.

100

-6

Evan Longoria

3B

$ 14

-$ 1

9 HR in June, and he should easily surpass his disappointing 2014 and 2015 campaign.

Fallouts: Justin Verlander, Billy Hamilton, Gerardo Parra, Jose Bautista, Francisco Cervelli, J.D. Martinez

On the Bubble: Stephen Vogt, Prince Fielder, Michael Pineda, Danny Valencia, Shin-Soo Choo, Marcell Ozuna
