Joey Votto 1B Reds
Hitting .227 with only 4 RBI expect one of the game's best hitters to get right soon he is too good a hitter playing in a hitters paradise with solid lineup protection.
Anthony Rizzo 1B Cubs
Rizzo (.197 11 RBI) has been a traditional slow starter over the past few years but always seems to get his 30 homers and drive in 100 or so. The cold weather at Wrigley is a mofo in April by the way.
Jose Ramirez 3B Indians
Cold weather could be a factor for a guy who seems to improve every season over the past 3 years. Hitting under .160 with 5 RBI af the moment.
Chris Sale LHP Red Sox
An 8.50 ERA and an uncharacteristic less strikeouts than innings 18/14. He should be fine his stuff is simply too good.
Aaron Nola RHP Phillies
Coming off a breakthrough 2018 it appears the league has adjusted a bit. He has posted a 6.84 ERA over 25 innings surrendering 30 hits. Nola remains an intelligent pitcher who should bounce back from a rough April.
J.A. Happ LHP Yankees
Happ was a solid acquustion for the Yankees during last season. The veteran lefty is not missing many bats with an ERA over 7 runs per contest including 25 hits during 18 innings of work. When Severino comes back the veteran staff as a whole should be in a better place after a rough start.
Bradley over his last 4 games is averaging 20/5/5 with 1.0 steals
