June 28, 2019
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.
This week’s featured players has a focus on some newer faces in the league!
The fans have spoken! Pete Alonso 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!
The NL Player of the week, Alonso posted a slash line of .417/.548/1.042 with 10 H, 7 BB, 3 2B, 4 HR, 7 R, 7 RBI over 7 games played.
This week he mashed his 27th tater, allowing him to surpass Darryl Strawberry (26) for the most home runs in a single season by a rookie in Mets’ franchise history. His 27 trips to souvenir city are the fourth-most by a rookie before the All-Star break in MLB history, only behind eventual Rookies of the Year Mark McGwire (33), Aaron Judge (30) and José Abreu (29).
We’ve boosted Alonso’s Contact, Power, and Speed.
Compared to some of the other fresh faces in this week’s update, Canning is a grizzled vet. Canning has started 10 games for the Angels and has 3.88 ERA and a 1.024 WHIP. In his most recent start, as all eyes were on Pujols return to Busch Stadium, Canning pitched for 5.1 innings and gave up 2 R, earning himself the quality start.
We’ve boosted Canning’s Velocity, Curve, and Stamina.
The Houston rookie has been out of this world since his debut on June 9th, where he hit a 2 RBI HR against the Orioles. Alvarez has already logged a slash line of .304/.391/.732 with 17 H, 3 2B, 7 HR, and 18 RBIs.
We’ve boosted Alvarez’s Contact and Power.
The Cubs’ right hander has pitched 8.2 innings since being called up, starting one game and closing out the other. In his two appearances he’s tallied 9 Ks, 6 BB, 2 H, 2 R, good for an ERA of 2.08.
We’ve boosted Alzolay’s Velocity, Curve, Drop, and Speed Differential.
Since Sunday (6/23) Newman has a slash line of .467/.500/.667 with 7 H, 1 BB, 1 HR, and 5 RBIs. His walk wasn’t just a walk though. It was a full count, bases loaded, bottom of the 11th walk-off vs the Padres.
We’ve boosted Newman’s Contact, Speed, and Fielding.
The Miami pitcher made his second start this week where he had 8 Ks, 2 BB, and 1 H through five scoreless innings to begin his night. With three of Miami’s starters on IL Gallen looks to get more opportunities to showcase his skills.
We’ve boosted Gallen’s Velocity, Curve, and Drop
