At the end of May, Kendrick was slashing .290/.361/.406 and he had already swiped nine bases. So far in June, though, he's slashing just .219/.265/.297 and he's attempted just one steal … and he was caught.

Ramirez was one of the top shortstops in fantasy baseball for the first two months of 2014. He's regressed back to reality though in June; so far this month he's hitting just .238 to go with zero home runs, six runs, zero RBIs and one steal.

8. Shin-Soo Choo

If Choo has been in your lineup at all this month, he's been nothing but a drain. Choo is hitting a measly .132 this month to go with zero home runs, five runs, eight RBIs and no steals; his .019 ISO in June is the third worst in baseball.

Upton owners should be nervous that his 2014 season doesn't play out exactly like his 2013 did. So far in June, though, it's looking like a repeat of 2013 might be in store. Upton is hitting just .189 this month to go with one home run, seven runs and four RBIs. His .225 wOBA in June is the sixth lowest in baseball.

5. Adrian Gonzalez

Adrian Gonzalez was arguably the hottest hitter in baseball back in April, he cooled off a bit in May and now he's ice cold in June. Gonzalez has a slash line of .175/.242/.246 this month to go with zero home runs, seven runs and five RBIs.

4. Yadier Molina

Molina was the consensus No. 2 catcher heading into the season, but so far this month, he's looked like someone who should be in free agency. Molina's hitting just .192 in June to go with just one home run, one run and three RBIs.

3. Josh Donaldson

Donaldson shot out of a cannon to start 2014 and toward the end of May, his name was being floated around as a possible AL MVP candidate. Then June came. Heading into this month, Donaldson was hitting .280 to go with 15 home runs, 48 runs, 46 RBIs, a .271 ISO and a .400 wOBA. So far in June, Donaldson has hit just .174 to go with two home runs, six runs, six RBIs, a .087 ISO and a .205 wOBA -- the fourth lowest in baseball.

2. Jean Segura
