We hit you guys up with the fantasy players that are on a major hot streak with the Hot Streak Report earlier this week, so now it’s time to inform you of the duds, in case you haven’t seen your lineup suffer because of their “efforts”. You might not even know some of these guys are in horrible slumps, and that’s why we’re here. It’s easy to over-look long droughts in fantasy baseball, so this list lets you know each week which guys are really struggling. Read on for week four’s edition:
Dan Uggla, 2B, Atlanta Braves
Uggla, a notorious slow starter, is hitting just .177 on the season. While he has never been known for being a contact hitter, hitting below the Mendoza-line is not getting it done for someone the Braves are relying on in the middle of their order.
Vernon Wells, OF, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Wells remains on this list after continuing his terrible slump. He is now hitting just .148 on the year and has yet to hit a home run.
Carl Crawford, OF, Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox $142 million dollar man has a batting average lower than his contract amount. Hitting just .127 with no home runs and just 2 stolen bases, Crawford is struggling mightily in the early-going for the ‘Sox.
Brett Gardner, OF, New York Yankees
Gardner, who had 47 stolen bases in 2010, has just three in the early going. His real struggles, however, have been at the plate where he is sporting a .140 batting average.
Adam Dunn, OF, Chicago White Sox
Dunn now has just 3 hits over his last 26 at bats. While he has never been known for his patience at the plate, he also just has two home runs.
Jayson Werth, OF, Washington Nationals
$126 million for Werth’s services is starting to look questionable, as he is hitting just .200 with 2 lone RBI’s on the year.
James Loney, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers
Yet another outfielder to make this list, Loney has already found his way to the bench this year, thanks largely to his .150 batting average.
