Eugenio Suarez, Cincinnati Reds - Eugenio Suarez almost quietly as he hit two homers on Sunday to push his total to 44 for the year, 10more than the career-high he set last season in two more games and 20 more at-bats. The batting average has taken a dip back this year but the overall production has been just as good so everything is fine and dandy. The metrics behind his batted balls are thorough mediocre though despite the incredible production. He ranks just in the 52nd percentile in exit velocity and the 62ndpercentile in hard-hit rate, but the power spike this year has come from a 5%jump in his barrel% and a three-degree jump in his launch angle. He's not flashing which can push him down draft boards, but it may be hard to ignore him next year especially if he closes in on 50 homers.
Wilson Ramos, New York Mets - Wilson Ramos went 3-for-5 on Sunday with his 14th homer of the season and three RBI. He's put together a solid season across the board with the 14 homers, 71 RBI, and .298 average to go ontop. Ramos is an interesting case for a little more power going into next year though as his average launch angle is 0.9 degrees. A jump with the bouncy balls they've put into his normal 4-5 degree mark could get him over the 20 homer mark next year.
Matt Joyce, Atlanta Braves - Matt Joyce has been getting playing time for the Braves lately against right-handed pitching and has made the most of it, and he hit homered for the 7th time this year. This gives him homers in back-to-back games and he has around three homers in the last week and a half. There's a real argument to be made that he should continue to get the bulk of the RF at-bats against righties, but I'd be surprised if BrianSnitker were to turn Nick Markakis into a bench bat but it's likely what is best for the team right now.
Yan Gomes, Washington Nationals - Yan Gomes hit a pair of homers Sunday giving him nine for the year. Kurt Suzuki is dealing with an elbow injury so we could see Gomes get a little more playing time over the rest of the season. Gomes has shown the ability to get to double-digit homers in years past and he hasn't needed a large number of games to get to that point. He could make for an interesting play down the stretch in the playoffs if you need some free power at the spot.
Jack Flaherty, St Louis Cardinals - Jack Flaherty's second-half dominance continued on Sunday with 10 strikeouts over eight shutout innings. Flaherty hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start since July 2ndand over this stretch he's striking out 32% of the batters that he's faced when opponents are putting the ball in play, they are hitting just .140 against him. He came into the year as a breakout candidate and while the first half was a bit shaky, he's turned into exactly what the people who draft him were asking for and he's fueling rotations heading into the fantasy playoffs.
