Jake Burger, 3B, Chicago White Sox

Burger was a former 60-grade power prospect, and top-100 overall prospect. He ruptured his left Achilles' tendon during a Cactus League game, February 2018. He was then able to tear the ligament again 10 weeks later. That cost him the whole season. Due to a bruising of his heel, he was unable to play in 2019. He spent 2020 on the White Sox's alternate site. To begin 2021, Burger had 18 home runs with Triple-A Charlotte and.239 isolated powers. He also earned a brief glimpse with the major-league club and two more stints with this team. But it is his recent stint that stands out. Burger's May 24 recall has seen him bat.322/.385/.712 and he has six home runs, 16 RBIs, and 12 runs in 16 games. Burger moved to regular duty at third base, designated hitter and No. He occupied the No. 5 spot in each of his four previous games. Burger has been a great pop player in the majors with a 16.7% barrel rate per Statcast at the 95th percentile, a 44.4% hard hit rate at the 73rd and a 33.3% fly ball rate in his 86th percentile games. It's a hot streak that is worth capitalizing on, especially since it includes a three-game series against an injury-ravaged team. Detroit Tigers rotation ahead.

Bryson Stott, SS, Philadelphia Phillies

If you're looking for hot streaks, then why not ride one that aligns with Week 10? Stott's batting average was.333/.400/.694 and he has scored four home runs, 11 RBIs and 12 runs while playing in all of the Phillies' games during their 9-1 run. He also earned regular play at shortstop and second base regardless of whether the opposing pitcher is handed. Stott posted an 83.3% strikeout rate, which was significantly better than the 65.8% he recorded in the previous 24 games. He also chased pitches 6% less often, and looked much more like the more disciplined prospect he was back in the minors. Stott isn’t a top-shelf prospect. He has closer-to-mid range skills. But that’s what makes him the type of player who can take advantage of the eight-game schedule that the Phillies have. It includes five weekends games against a weak Washington Nationals rotation.

Toronto has confidence in Moreno's ability to manage a regular position. He is a contact-hitting and line-drive type.

The Blue Jays open their week against a weak opponent with four home games. Baltimore Orioles If you are looking to add to your pitching staff, it is well worth it.
