Here is an explanation of this weekly feature. This entry lists the best and worst for the past 30 days of the 2016 regular season, through games of Sunday, May 22.

Comment of the week: Take a look at the worst National League hitters by OPS over the past 30 days. There are a couple decent hitters in there, but it’s mostly glove-first guys. The bottom four in the American League are all purported sluggers making, in aggregate, $78.25 million this year.

Also, Colorado’s Jonathan Gray is third in the league in fielding independent pitching and third to worst in ERA over the past 30 days.
