After clobbering 17 home runs through May, Dietrich has since collected 14 hits in June and July. The slump paired with Scooter Gennett return has sent him to the bench, and Josh VanMeter has taken over his role as a righty-masher stealing playing time across the diamond. It was fun while it lasted, but Dietrich should be dropped in all leagues.

The batting average has come crashing down and his power has completely halted to go along with the playing time. With that said, he was so exceptional for a stretch that you can make a case for stashing him until he comes out of it and mashes again.
