You're right. Each homer will be worth less in the end-season formulas (the values here are based on 2018). What I'm showing as a $20 first half is probably an $18 first half. Something like that.

And we are just starting the warm-weather onslaught.

But will they have earned $40 or more once you recalculate values based on the HR onslaught?

Ten hitters are on a pace to earn $40 or more in 5x5 on July 1.

Cody Bellinger 27

Ronal Acuna 22

Charlie Blackmon 22

Freddie Freeman 22

Nolan Arenado 21

DJ LeMahieu 21

Trevor Story 20

Ketel Marte 20

Rafael Devers 20 

Only two cheapies: LeMahieu and Marte. Devers was no cheapie, but earning serious money with his batting average and his legs is certainly a surprise.

I doubt he'll swipe 16 bases this year but he'll surely hit more than 24 homers.

His G/L/F and BABIP by month

Looking at his G/L/F, it seems like he's adjusted his launch angle to be less launchy.  Fly balls that don't go over the wall are outs.  Line drives are more likely hits.  His BABIP and Avg reflect how much better the change has been for his performance.

With his four knocks last night he pushes his slash stats to .317/.369/.520, his BABIP to .356. The big drop in K% indicates a conscious effort to put more balls in play.

Most HR for a player 20 years old or younger, first 16 career games:

1. Rafael Devers, 6
T2. Frank Robinson, 5
T2. Ron Swoboda, 5
T2. Andruw Jones, 5
T2. Fernando Tatis Jr., 5

21 in LABR, so there was at least one person at the table who believes in the power of nutrition, and maybe a second, if he wasn't just driving up the price.

At least this "best shape of his life" article is about a 22 year old, which makes some sense, rather than a 34 year old.

Rafael Devers (3B) BOS - Feb. 5

Devers hired a nutritionist over the offseason and has focused on improving his conditioning throughout the winter, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. "I feel healthy right now," Devers said in January. "I think I'm in a good place. Last year, I had a lot of injuries and I think it was a product of the weight." 

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Officially listed at six-foot, 237 pounds, Devers hasn't tracked his weight loss over the last few months, but Cotillo notes that the third baseman is noticeably slimmer than he was during his first two seasons with Boston. Conditioning issues may have contributed in part to Devers requiring three stints on the disabled list between last July and August, with a pair of hamstring injuries in particular proving problematic...
