All-Star Balloting: Bautista Hangs On to Top Spot in AL, But Gap Closing

The Jays' Jose Bautista has been on a tear all season long.

Jose Bautista has been the best in the bigs all season long, but is his time as the most dominant player in the Majors coming to an end? An extremely hot month from Adrian Gonzalez has fans wondering what kind of numbers the slugging Red Sox star will post, and whether or not Bautista will be able to live up to the incredible numbers he has posted early this season. Time will tell who will continue to keep their bat red-hot, and who will sizzle away. These are the power rankings for the American League as of May 30.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Last Week: 1)

Bautista has not been touched in the top spot yet this season, and for good reason. The Blue Jays’ slugger is 1st in the league in home runs, 1st in runs, 1st in walks, 1st in OBP, 1st in slugging, and 1st in OPS. (more…)

As the Major League Baseball season passes the quarter mark and heads for the dog days of summer, the time has come to decide who is a contender, and who will fizzle away.

These are the best offensive fantasy baseball players in the American League as on May 23rd.

1) Jose Bautista – TOR (Last Week: 1)

As another week passes, more home runs stack up for the best player in baseball right now. Up to 19 home runs so far, Bautista is on pace to put up about 65 homers this season, and at this rate, he may just do it. (more…)

Jose Bautista is living up to his big new contract, now at #1 in the AL Power Rankings

April has come and gone, and the MLB season swings into May. Some were happy to see the calendar change, while others are hoping they can eclipse what the beginning of the season has meant for their stats. Last season’s home run champ continues to dominate American League pitching, while other are making adjustments to show what they can do. These are the fantasy baseball power rankings for hitters in the AL as of May 10th.

1) Jose Bautista- TOR (Last Week: 1)
Bautista missed 5 games due to a neck injury, so his numbers have not changed much since last week. However, in his return to the lineup Sunday, Bautista blasted a home run to show that the injury was only a minor setback. (more…)
