Two weeks ago I went through each and every National League team's offense to detail thoughts on who has done well, who will do well and well, other things. Just to be fair, let's try it again today with the American League hitters!
Tops on Player Rater: Robinson Cano is first, and he's having another terrific season, having reached a career high in home runs and still, Derek Jeter is right with him. Incredible. These guys rank second and third behind Jose Reyes among all middle infielders in fantasy.
Noteworthy stat: Manny Machado will be eligible only at third base for fantasy next season, but the bigger concern is his three walks versus 30 strikeouts. Doesn't mean he can't be Starlin Castro, but I think we're hoping for more.
Eric Karabell looks at each American League team to find the top offensive player on the Player Rater as well as potential guys to pick up down the stretch.
