Weekly Roster Update 05/24/19
May 24, 2019
As will be the case every Friday of the 2019 season, we’ve updated all 30 teams’ rosters. We’ve given significant boosts to this past week’s top performers and changed the lineups to best reflect the ones being put on the field each day by MLB clubs.
Let’s take a look at the past week’s top performers.
The fans have spoken! Freddie Freeman is the inaugural winner of the #ChooseToBoost poll. Look out for our next poll so that you can vote for which top performer of the weekend gets a boost! Follow us on Twitter @RBIGAME to make sure you never miss a poll!
Freddie has been an offensive force this past week. Over his last 7 games he’s slashed .433/.485/.967 with 5 HR, 13 H and 8 RBI including a solo walk-off home run against the Brewers last Saturday. Freeman is tied for second in the league in hits. We’ve boosted his Contact and Power.
Trey Mancini continues to be the air beneath the O’s wings, leading the team with 55 H, 15 XBH, 10 HR, and a slash line of .302/.352/.549. He lived up to his nickname Boomer last week, hitting 3 HRs in his last 9 games. We’ve boosted his Power.
Slamtana has been living up to his nickname this past week with a monsterous slash line of .429/.613/1.000 and 3 HRs. Don’t let the nickname deceive you though, Carlos is also top 10 in the league in BBs showing off his patience and good eyes. We’ve boosted his Contact and Power.
Davies has quietly had a terrific May, going 2-0 and bringing his record for the season to 5-0. He currently has a 2.43 ERA, good enough for 8th in the league. We’ve boosted his Velocity and Drop.
The Tigers have won 8 of their last 10 and Shaner has been a big reason why. He has 7 Saves in those 8 games and 15 on the season out of 15 opportunities, good for 2nd in the league. The grass may be Greene-r on the other side, the Tigers are 16-4 in games Greene has played in. We’ve boosted his Drop.
Will Smith pulled a genie out of a bottle this past week. The Fresh Prince of San Fran has been nearly perfect his last 3 games, facing 10 batters and striking out 9 of them. For those keeping stats at home, that would give him a 27 K/9 with a 9:0 K:BB ratio. If he keeps that kind of performance up the Giants could see themselves making a run for the Wild Wild NL West. We’ve boosted his Curve and Drop.
