5 Struggling Sticks

Fantasy baseball owners in general have very little patience. A couple 0-4 performances and an All-Star could very well find himself on the bench around the fantasy world. So while setting your lineup in the next couple weeks, here are five struggling sticks to remain patient with through the first half of the 2014 fantasy baseball season.

Granderson was the team’s big free agent acquisition this off-season, but he has struggled to find the ball. He currently has a disgusting .170 batting average and the outfielder has already struck out 16 times. Even worse, the Grandy Man was forced to leave Tuesday's game with a slew of injuries after colliding with the outfield wall. He will be back soon, though, so don't panic too much.

Despite all the hype surrounding the young outfielder, Myers has amassed a lackluster .217 batting average this year and has only driven in four runs. He hasn’t hit any homers and has also struck out 13 times through the first 12 games.

Cano may be a bit of a long shot for this list, as he currently has a robust .320 batting average, but he hasn’t produced any power numbers. He hasn’t hit a single home run and has only racked up five RBIs through the first 13 contests.

McCutchen is easily one of the most electric players in all of fantasy. He can hit for average, for power, and can steal bases with ease. Cutch is hitting a meager .273, though, and the reigning NL MVP has failed to hit a single home run. The outfielder will come around soon, but fantasy fans can't help but be frustrated with McCutchen's slow start.

After collecting a video game-like 88 home runs and 276 RBIs over the last two seasons, Miggy was rightfully the first (or second) pick in every fantasy draft this spring. Unfortunately, he has a meager .225 batting average and the slugger has only crushed one homer in his first 40 at-bats. He is in a serious funk right now.
