The fantasy baseball season is starting to pick up speed, but not all of the big name hitters are earning their money so far. To help you identify the problem, here are five sticks that have seriously struggled through Week 5 of the fantasy baseball season.
Uggla has been a fixture in the middle of fantasy lineups for close to a decade. Unfortunately, the veteran has a lackluster .202 batting average right now and he has hit only two home runs through the first 24 games. The slugger is having a very rough time at the plate and he simply won't be worth starting until he finally wakes up.
Hardy has been dealing with a hamstring injury for most of the season and it has caused his fantasy numbers to suffer. The veteran hasn’t hit a single home run this season and he currently has a .242 batting average to go along with an awful .258 On Base Percentage. It is only a matter of time until Hardy heats up, though, and starts clubbing balls over that short porch in Camden Yards.
Reyes was drafted as top-five shortstop in many formats, but the four-time All-Star has not lived up to expectations this season. He currently has an appalling .200 batting average and the speedster has yet to steal a single base. This is not the start to the 2014 season that the fantasy community expected from the veteran.
The Kung Fu Panda has been awful this season. He has a pathetic .177 batting average through the first 26 games. He has also hit just two homers and driven in only six runs this season. Sandoval is one stick that has yet to start hitting for fantasy owners.
Granderson has been unable to find his swing in Flushing this season. He currently has a meager .136 batting average on the year, but he has been even worse at the plate this month. He has amassed only four hits over his last 50 at-bats, which is an unthinkable .080 batting average. The outfielder continues to underachieve game and game.
