After focusing on the pitching side of the equation recently, we'll turn the focus to offense this week, focusing on guys who fit into one of three buckets:

Turnarounds - Poor April, very good May

Complete Duds - Take the opposite of "Turnarounds"

Surprises - Guys who made a cameo in April (if that), but have got off to a solid start this month


Marco Scutaro (SF) - Scutaro is batting .471 this month and after hitting just .240 in April, and if your team has guys like Pedro Alvarez who hit for power but not average, then Scutaro could be a good fit. He's hit just one home run this year and has yet to steal a base, so that limits his value, but he's going to score runs and hit for a solid average, so with the positional flexibility Scutaro offers in most leagues, he's a nice guy to have around.
