Fantasy Baseball: Who’s Running Hot and Who’s Running Cold
- Updated: August 8, 2011
Coco Crisp (OAK)
Billy Butler (KC) –
After a first half which saw him hit 6 HR, Butler has dialed it up a notch in the second half with 7 HR since the break (including 3 in his past 23 AB. He has also collected 11 RBI the past week.
Carlos Lee (HOU) –
Lee must have really hated to see his teammate Hunter Pence get traded to the Phillies. Lee is hitless in his last 22 AB and with several Astros dealt at the deadline, things are not loking up for the formerly reliable slugger.
Eric Thames (TOR) –
In a crowded Blue Jays outfield situation, the last thing a young player needs is to go into a slump. Thames is hitless over his last 19 AB and needs to break out of his funk.
Danny Espinosa (WAS) –
After establishing himself as one of the premier second basemen in the game with a first half including 16 R and 12 SB, Espinosa has cooled off noticeably. Since the break, Espy has hit 1 HT with 0 SB and has only 3 hits to show for his last 29 AB.
