Oddly undervalued after hitting .290 with 27 homers and nine steals in 2017, Rosario replicated his breakout by batting .288 with 24 long balls and eight steals in 138 games. Yet he didn't fly up draft boards because of a miserable second half (.240/.262/.387) unnerved by a quad injury. He's once again off to the early races, batting .286 with 26 home runs and 79 RBIs through August 15. While the steals have dried up, he should be good to go as a borderline top-50 player after returning from a quad injury.

Rosario is no longer swiping any bags for fantasy owners, but his consistency at the plate has rewarded them richly as he is once again on track for 30 homers with a useful batting average and all the RBIs and runs to match both.

Rosario has been briefly sidelined with a sprained ankle, but he's set to resume his breakout power season in the second half. He probably won't quite keep up his current HR pace, but his first 30-homer season looks like a near certainty.
