I doubt he'll be much better than what you have... depending on if Davis can raise his average at all, and if lowell can stay healthy... he's projected to come back right after the Allstar break so u have a little bit to wait and see... He did his a two run homer in his first at bat last night in his first rehab start and finished with 3 rbi's ...

i would pick Encarnacion vs Gordon for second half, although both seem like long shots for anything above average. EE will be back soon, sounds like he's ready now, and he least he's proven more in past than Gordon. both were sleepers going into the year so interesting to watch for next year's draft.

Looking at his rehab numbers so far, it appears as if he's seeing the ball pretty well. In 10 ABs, he's walked 5 times, 2 hits (1 HR), and 3 Ks. Reports are that he isn't running well though and will likely not be 100% when he returns to KC after the AS break. He's here in Omaha starting today and I hope to be able to catch a game and watch him play.

As a dynasty owner the 100% thing worries me, but I think hes the closest we will see to a second half sleeper this season.

Well, it's his legs, thankfully, and not his wrists or shoulders, so he still has a chance to produce at the plate for you...and me. :-D

No, its his hip.

Sorry, yes, his hip. At least I had the lower portion of the body. :-D
