Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer and Chris Sale are the elites among the five-star pitchers.
Kris Bryant and Nolan Arenado lead the way as expected, even if they haven’t produced quite as much as hoped. Joey Gallo continues to crank home runs despite warning signs, and Nick Castellanos owners wait patiently by the box score for signs of a big rebound.
J.D. Martinez got off to a late start, but is traveling five star from here to 162. Mike Trout, out for a while, must make more pedestrian accomodations.
Jose Altuve is as elite as they comeâ€”at any position.
Joey Votto is a beast, but so is Yonder Alonso (with fewer stars). Don’t worry when you don’t see Cody Bellinger.
