Brandon Phillips, Los Angeles Angels - Brandon Phillips hit homer number 13 Tuesday in a 2-for-4 game. Phillips is finishing up a perfectly fine season at 2B slashing .288/.322/.420 with 13 homers and 11 steals. He's been a solid and steady option this year even with playing most of the season at 36 years old. You can see Phillips' stat line move along with his age as he's seen his power numbers rise slightly each of the last few years and his steals slowly but surely decline. He's a free agent after this year so it's uncertain where he'll play next year.
Eddie Rosario, Minnesota Twins - Eddie Rosario launched his 27th homer of the year Tuesday while going 4-for-5 and also lacing a pair of doubles. Rosario has had a bit of a power surge this second half with 17 homers in around 15 less at bats than he has in the first half of the season. He's seen his FB% jump by 10% over the second half and also has a 34% hard hit rate compared to a 28% in the first half.
Ben Gamel, Seattle Mariners - Ben Gamel has been one of the more crazy surprises in fantasy this year posting a usable at times .280/.328/.423 triple slash with 11 homers. Gamel has never topped 10 homers in the minors at all so to get 11 in the majors is fairly impressive. Maybe next season we can see him work in some stolen bases as well as he was a consistent double digit steal guy in the minor leagues.
Yonder Alonso, Seattle Mariners - While his numbers have definitely taken a step back since the deal to Seattle, he's still posting solid numbers and hit his fifth homer as a Mariner. He's now up to 37 homers on the year and owns a career high (by a very large margin) 130 wRC+. Yonder turned into another one of the many "hit it high hit it far" kind of players and it's paid huge dividends for him.
Brian Dozier, Minnesota Twins - Baring some sort of Giancarlo Stanton-ish run here Brian Dozier is unlikely to match his 42 homers from last season he's still having an incredible follow up campaign at .264/.351/.486 with 33 homers and 16 steals at second base. Dozier has really turned into a fantasy superstar the last two seasons and with three runs scored Tuesday he's topped 100 runs for the fourth straight season.
