Franmil has been a sensation with 25 first-half homers despite playing half his games in San Diego. If he were to get dealt, his stock would sky rocket, but for now, he will continue to be held back by the park and getting a day or two off every week because of the Padres' outfield logjam.

Although he started slow, the Statcast data suggested Reyes was in store for a massive breakout. Surely enough, he's now batting .249/.300/.547 with 20 home runs. He still hasn't caught up to his .370 xwOBA, so the Padres outfielder could very well up his average a tad while pursuing 35-40 long balls. Such production would make him a league-winning find for those who grabbed him off the waiver wire in April.

Reyes was one of the most unlucky players in baseball over the season's first month, making tons of hard contact and having little to show for it. But his batted ball results have normalized in May, and it has translated into elite production. Reyes is a legit candidate to hit 35-40 home runs with a batting average that won't kill you.
