Least Valuable Position Player: Runner Up

Maikel Franco

I’m starting to run out of ways to deflect the fact that Maikel Franco may not be the player we thought he was.

Franco went 2 for 18 at the plate this week with no extra base hits and no runs batted in. Franco’s average now sits at .213 in 169 at bats and his slugging percentage ranks as 13th on the roster… between Brock Stassi and Vincent Velasquez.

Least Valuable Pitcher: Runner Up

Jeremy Hellickson

Hellickson had a tough week. The Phillies ace gave up eight hits and seven runs in just five innings of work while also walking four batters.

Hellickson’s May has severely hurt his draft stock as the veteran righty is 1-2 with a 7.30 ERA for the month.
