Weekly Hitter Rankings: Cleveland Rocks
Weekly Hitter Rankings: Cleveland Rocks

This article is part of our Weekly Hitter Rankings series.

The Weekly Hitter Rankings is a companion piece to the Weekly Pitcher Rankings. While in many leagues your offensive roster slots are set 'em and forget 'em, in deeper formats where every at-bat counts, knowing which teams have friendly schedules for hitters, and which platoon bats will be getting more action than usual, can be valuable information, especially in head-to-head formats and leagues where you make moves weekly instead of daily. The Weekly Hitter Rankings will summarize all that info in one spot, for your roster-juggling convenience.

For the period Sept 5-11

NOTE: Home/road splits are now pulled purely from 2016 team performances, with 2015 numbers completed phased out. 2016 park factors are also now included, replacing 2013 park factors in the rolling three-year average.

7 GAMES

1. Cleveland (32.982)

vs. HOU (4) – Fiers (R), Keuchel (L), Fister (R), Musgrove (R)
at MIN (3) – Santiago (L), Albers (L), Dean (L)

Mike Napoli should feast with four lefties on tap for the Tribe, but Brandon Guyer also makes a sneaky play in deeper leagues.

2. Colorado (32.600)

vs. SF (3) – Moore (L), Samardzija (R), Suarez (R)
at SD (4) – Richard (L), Perdomo (R), E. Jackson (R), Clemens (R)

3. St. Louis (31.941)

at PIT (3) – Kuhl (R), Vogelsong (R), Taillon (R)
vs. MIL (4) – Guerra (R), Nelson (R), Chase Anderson (R), Davies (R)

Having no lefties on the Cards' slate could cost players like Jedd Gyorko and Stephen Piscotty some at-bats.

4. Seattle
