2. Prince Fielder
Fielder is the only player on the roster who will have to play during the All-Star Game. This may be a good thing because the way he is hitting he will benefit from the additional swings. Prince Fielder is hitting .345/.409/.530 so far in 2015, all above his career averages.
This past week, Fielder continued by hitting .300/.318/.600 with two home runs and four RBI. The most impressive part of his week is that he did not strike out in any of his 20 at-bats. Fielder lowered his strikeout percentage for the season to 10.6% which is the lowest of his career and 6.3 percent less than his career average.
Be sure to tune in on Monday to see Fielder participate in the Home Run Derby, and keep your fingers crossed his swing remains as powerful in the second half as it was in the first.
