Sleepers Since May 1

Let's take a look at a few players who bounced back from lousy Aprils to post big numbers thereafter.

  • Josh Willingham, OF.  .340-11-24-36-3 in 156 ABs.  Not a household name, but he's been better than a lot of big-name OFs since the beginning of May.  Willingham is a decent candidate to be traded.
  • Luke Scott, OF.  Weird season for Scott - mediocre in April and June, on fire in May and July.  He's at .325-15-40-30-0 since May 1.
  • Maicer Izturis, SS.  He's actually done most of his damage in June and July.  But 30 runs in 149 ABs since May 1 deserves attention.  He's batted leadoff over 100 times.
  • Franklin Gutierrez, OF.  .314-9-30-34-5 since May 1 - a five tool guy.
  • Cody Ross, OF.  .301-11-38-36-3. 
  • A few SPs who've been killing it since May 1 but were certainly undrafted in mixed leagues: Randy Wells and J.A. Happ.  Wells has better peripherals and is less hit-reliant.  Kenshin Kawakami has been solid at 3.36.  Gavin Floyd's at 4.07, nice peripherals.  Similar story for Brian Bannister, Carl Pavano, Jason Hammel, Kevin Correia, Brett Anderson, Jordan Zimmermann, and Hiroki Kuroda.  Highly touted young guys like Anderson and Zimmermann could take off in the second half.
