Josiah “Sway” Gray reigns supreme atop the #HighFive List for consecutive weeks after shutting down one of the Nationals League’s best teams on the way to his second win of the year.

1. Josiah “Sway” Gray

Put some respect on Josiah Gray’s name!

He ended the month of April with the 10th lowest ERA in the National League and put an exclamation point on things during his final start against the Pirates this past Sunday.

Gray got the win after pitching six innings of one run ball while striking out six and giving up only three hits. Gray went five plus innings in each of his six starts this month and he gave up one or less runs in four of them.  


He also has given up only one home run in five games, which is a sign in the right direction after he led the Majors in long balls given up last year. Gray’s next start will come Friday night in Arizona against the D-Backs.


2. Lamonte Wade Jr.

“Late Night” Lamonte Wade joined the home run fiesta over the weekend when his Giants took on the Padres in Major League Baseball’s Mexico City Series.



Wade had homers in both games and has his average sitting at .348 in his last seven games. He also has a .500 on base percentage and an OPS of 1.000. Wade Jr. sees most of his playing time against righties and is slowly becoming one of the more underrated players in baseball.

Through the first month of the season, he walked just as much as he struck out (19 times) while also hitting six home runs. His Giants return to The Bay this weekend for a three-game set against the Brewers.


3. Mookie Betts

“Wherever you put this brother on the field, he will get the job done.”’s Kevin Moore said it best about Betts, who showed once again there is nothing on a baseball diamond he can’t do.


Betts started at shortstop for the Dodgers Monday night and had his best game this season. He played solid defense and finished 3-for-5 with a home run, double and three RBI in what ended up as a 13-4 win for L.A. Betts is hitting .357 with eight RBI, a .438 on base percentage and five runs scored in his last seven games.




His Dodgers bring their six-game winning streak to San Diego for a weekend series against their rival Padres.



Betts will have the honor of wearing the on-field mic during the Sunday Night Baseball broadcast.


4. Marcus “Stro Show” Stroman


Marcus Stroman celebrated his 32nd birthday in style by bouncing back from his worst start of the year and throwing two gems in one week.


He combined to throw 12.1 innings and gave up a total of three runs while striking out eight. Stroman now has the 11th lowest ERA in the Majors among starters and he leads all of baseball with six quality starts this season. He will get to enjoy another weekend of celebrating 32 years of life before taking on the struggling Cardinals at Wrigley Field on Monday.

5. Willie Calhoun

A visit from has a resurgent Willie Calhoun playing out of his mind over the last week.

“There is no doubt in my mind Willie Calhoun can bang,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters during a recent road trip to Dallas to take on his former Rangers team

With MVP Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton currently on the Injured List, Calhoun has stepped up big time, especially over his last seven games where he is batting .318 with two homers, both of which coming in back-to-back days against the Guardians.



His ninth inning one out single tied the game for the Yankees Wednesday night before they ultimately would walk-off as winners.

“I am having a lot of fun, it is the same game and I am having a really good time in New York,” Calhoun told

He will look to stay hot as the Yankees look to upset the Rays who have the best record in the Majors over the weekend.
