June DH Rankings

Monday, June 06, 2011

Welcome to the June rankings. Players are ranked based on how much value I believe they'll provide in 5x5 leagues over the rest of the season. Along with the position rankings, you'll find a fully updated top 250 list.

Designated hitters

  • I'm keeping Vladdy ahead of Ortiz, even though Ortiz's OPS is about 250 points higher at the moment. Both are going to lose some value this month, since neither figures to get any starts in National League ballparks.

  • Hafner falls behind Cust because he's still at least a couple of weeks away from returning from a strained oblique.
