Weekly Roster Update 06/07/19

It’s Friday, you know what that means, 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!

Max Scherzer

The fans have spoken! Max Scherzer was this week’s winner of the #ChooseToBoost poll. Keep an eye 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!

Scherzer is familiar with the spotlight. 6x All-Star, 3x Cy Young winner, 4x Wins leader, 3x NL Strikeout leader, and now he can add RBI’s #ChooseToBoost poll winner to his list.

Over his last 3 starts Blue Eye has thrown for 20 innings 14 H, 4 B, 2 ER, and 30 Ks, going 1-0 in that stretch. After throwing 14 Ks in 117 pitches (in 7 2/3 innings) against the Reds, Nationals Manager, Dave Martinez, wanted to pull Scherzer from the game.

Let’s take a look at his reaction.

Scherzer proceeded to strike out Joey Votto in 3 pitches. Catch his full game highlights below. We’ve boosted Scherzer’s Velocity, Curve, Drop, and Speed Differential.

Trevor Story

The Rockies are trying to put the rest of the NL West to bed and that means it’s Story time. On May 1st the Rockies were in 4th place in the NL West, the Rockies now sit in 2nd. In his last 11 games Trev has 17 H, including 5 doubles, a triple, and a pair of two Home Run games. Did we mention he had a career high 7 RBIs in one of those games?

This Story has something for everyone, as he’s top 10 in Hits, Total Bases, Defensive WAR, Stolen Bases and leads the league in Runs Scored. We’ve boosted Trev’s Contact, Speed, and Fielding. Enjoy some highlights from his career performance where he went 3 for 4 with a double, 2 HRs, and 7 RBIs.

Hyun-Jin Ryu

Hyun-Jin Ryu has a 1.35 ERA. Not over his last couple games, on the season. He leads the majors in ERA, Wins, BB/IP, and K/BB and is top ten in too many categories to list. Since May 1st he’s given up 3 ER in 7 starts. His BB/9IP (0.563) and K/BB (14.200) are unrivaled, second place is 1.322 and 7.182 respectively. Is he the frontrunner for Cy Young this year? We’ve boosted Ryu’s Velocity, Curve, Drop, and Stamina.

Jay Bruce

The Bruce is loose! Jay Bruce had an entire meal in his second game with the Phillies, going 3 for 4 with a double, a 2 RBI tater, and a grand salami. In his three games in his new home he’s gone 6 for 11. Can he keep it up as the Phillies look to secure the NL East? We’ve boosted Bruce’s Contact and Power.

Adalberto Mondesi

La Guinea is a nickname Mondesi has had since he was little. It’s a small, fast bird. And it couldn’t be more fitting, as La Guinea leads the league in Triples and Stolen Bases. He doesn’t just lead the league in Stolen Bases, he’s 7 Stolen Bases ahead of 2nd. Since May 25th he’s logged 4 doubles, 1 triple, 5 stolen bases, and has been caught stealing zero times. We’ve boosted Mondesi’s Arm and Speed.

Kyle Hendricks

In his first 10 games, Kyle Hendricks threw over 100 pitches zero times. In his last 2 games, Kyle Hendricks threw over 100 pitches both times. In those games he pitched 15 innings giving up 10 H, 2 B, 4 ER, with 17 Ks and 2 Wins. We’ve boosted Hendo’s Velocity, Drop, and Stamina.
