With an exciting May already off to a good start, we are beginning to see guys work their way out of early funks to solidify their identities as hitters in 2017, as has been the case with Jose Abreu and Eric Hosmer of late. The overachieving outliers tend to normalize after 6-8 weeks of gameplay have passed and we have a proper sample to look at, but Ryan Zimmerman, Aaron Judge, Avisail Garcia and Michael Conforto have been examples of players who don’t seem too concerned with slowing down their production any time soon. Conversely, we keep waiting for dramatic turnarounds from the usually dependable likes of Todd Frazier, Mike Napoli, Jose Bautista and Jackie Bradley, Jr., but they haven’t transpired just yet.

From a logistical standpoint, we are excited to debut a formatted list that reflects the style used for the Top 100 Starting Pitcher List that Nick compiles. Green and red change arrows, as well as previous, worst and best columns are now included to make the list more helpful.

With all that context taken into account, let’s review the Top 150 hitters in fantasy baseball:

Editor’s Note: The Best/Worst columns are currently incorrect. Please ignore them for now as we fix the issue.

    Being extremely generous to .215 hitters , namely Anthony Rizzo. He needs to get off the Banquet Circuit and back into the batting cage.

    Whats the rationale with Myers > Judge? I see the small sample size argument I suppose though at this point I’m not sure – his sample size is significant enough and with significantly better numbers than Myers.

    Good to see Bellinger make the list. He’s not only en fuego from a personal standpoint; he also seems to have turned that entire Dodgers offense around. It’s really hard to believe they would send him back to the minors at this point, though I may be biased, based on the astronomical contributions he’s currently making to my fantasy squad.
