Kingery, who batted .226/.267/.338 in his rookie campaign, is now hitting .275/.336/.503 with 14 homers and 10 steals through 351 plate appearances. He has turned on the jets again in August after predictably fading from an unsustainable stellar start in July, and the 25-year-old has grown exponentially from 2018's disappointing debut. He's comfortably emerged as a top-200 player to roster in all mixed leagues.

Kingery was white-hot for a month and has since come back down to earth like Tim Anderson. While Kingery is a quality ballplayer, his underlying metrics suggest the regression will continue coming, albeit with some power and speed to soften the blow.

It took a little while, but Kingery looks to finally be having the breakout that many expected from him last season. He's due for some regression, particularly in the batting average department, but his five-category skills are entirely legit. And the fact he's hitting atop a potent Phillies lineup should help his cause.
