July DH Rankings

Friday, July 1, 2011


Up this week are the July rankings. Players are ranked based on how I believe they will perform in 5x5 leagues over the remainder of the season. Along with the position rankings, you'll find a fully updated top 250 list.

Designated Hitter Rankings

  • Hideki Matsui, who would have ranked fourth this month, has been shifted over to the outfield rankings.

  • I'm keeping Johnson on the list, but it doesn't look like he'll be helping the Indians anytime soon. He's hitting just .220 with one extra-base hit and one RBI in 50 at-bats since moving up to Triple-A Columbus.
