Jose Reyes is back from the disabled list and takes the top spot in August. Hanley Ramirez is finally hitting the ball, but I’ll play it safe and rank him third. The biggest riser is Erick Aybar. He is on pace to steal 35 plus bases and I think he’ll get there. He’s even chipped in seven homers this year. I had no choice but to include Emilio Bonifacio. I’m expecting him to regress and become well, Emilio Bonifacio, but so far, he hasn’t. Keep playing him until he cools off.

I dropped Alexei Ramirez a few spots. He is doing okay, but just isn’t really blowing me away in any category. I would expect more homers and/or steals.
