Dropping off: Rio Ruiz (32nd)

 

  • Freddie Freeman would slot in here just ahead of Anthony Rendon for now. If he’s somehow able to pick up where he left off in May, he’d be a strong No. 3 or maybe edge ahead of Kris Bryant. I don’t think he’s going to be 100 percent right away, though.

 

  • I was sure about the top five and the third five, but the second five… I could have them in a completely different order again tomorrow. I’m sure having Todd Frazier sixth will rub some the wrong way, but after digging himself a huge hole, he’s hit .277/.395/.585 with eight homers over the last 30 days. A trade to a contender could boost his value further. Anyway, all five of those guys, from Frazier to Kyle Seager, are ranked from 66th to 77th in the top 300.

 

  • I still don’t believe we’ll see Red Sox prospect Rafael Devers this year, but he cracks the rankings just in case. A trade for a third baseman remains the likely scenario here, though the Red Sox could give the newly signed Jhonny Peralta an audition after the break.
