Neman's .326 batting average entering the break sure is exciting, but underlying metrics suggest that will come plummeting down before long, and when it does, all you've got is mediocre power and speed. While you can still play him, he shouldn't be regarded as safe quite yet.

Hello, Newman. A well-kept secret for most of 2019, the 25-year-old shortstop is batting .333 with four home runs and five steals in 53 games. The Pirates are leveraging his contact skills in the leadoff role. As of June 28, he sports a 165 wRC+ during a 15-game hitting streak. The word is out, but there may still be time to add Newman.
