The All-Star festivities are all wrapped up and the fantasy baseball community is already back to work. For those of you that haven't been paying attention, here are five players that have started the second-half off on fire.
Gomes was a popular sleeper this offseason, but he seriously struggled in the early part of the year. Since the turn, though, the backstop has raised his average from .261 up to .275. He has three doubles, one home, and three RBIs in the brief stretch.
Johnson shocked the world by hitting .321 last year, but he has looked like a different player this season. He is hitting just .276 with 100 strikeouts in 98 games. Luckily, the third baseman has started to come alive this week. He has gone 7-26 over the last seven games, including two homers and six RBIs.
Victorino was plagued with a hamstring injury in the first half of the season. Since returning from the DL, the veteran has been on fire. He is 8-19 since the turn and has amassed a hit in every game since the All-Star break. Victorino is a must-start from here on out.
Wheeler was a mess in the early going, as his ERA was north of 4.00 for most of the season. Lately, though, Wheeler has been throwing gas. He has allowed one earned run in four consecutive starts, including a six-inning gem earlier in the week. He is 2-0 over the span and has lowered his ERA down to 3.78. Wheeler has continued his hot-stretch from just before the All-Star break.
Jackson has been on fire since the turn. He is 14-29 over the eight games, including seven RBIs, five doubles, one triple, and a home run. He has even amassed two hits in seven straight contests. Jackson has truly come alive over the second-half of the fantasy season.
