This entry lists the best and worst for the past 30 days of the 2017 regular season, through games of Sunday, July 2. Here is an explanation of this weekly feature.

Comment of the week: We’re close enough to aligning with the month of June that we can make some guesses about the monthly awards. Aaron Judge and Andrew McCutchen look like good bets for their respective Player of the Month awards. Among pitchers, Corey Kluber and Max Scherzer have clearly been the best pitchers in their leagues, though there will probably be support for Clayton Kershaw in the NL because “wins.”
