The month of June has not been kind to many of baseball's best and it is slowly rearranging some fantasy baseball standings. Shin-Soo Choo, Adrian Gonzalez, David Wright, Josh Donaldson, and Ian Kinsler are all hitting below .150 while Justin Verlander, Jeff Samardzija, Tim Lincecum, A.J. Burnett, Jake Peavy, Julio Teheran, Rick Porcello, Alex Cobb, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, and Sonny Gray all have ERA's over 5.00! #450622136 / gettyimages.comEven after the torrid month of May Yasiel Puig had, he has only managed to score 3 runs in 11 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers and has yet to drive in a run! Joe Mauer has also failed to drive home a run in the month of June, but has scored 6 times.  Fellow catcher Yadier Molina has just 6 hits in 35 June at bats, has 6 singles and 0 runs scored while driving in just 2 runs and grounded out into 2 double plays.Brandon Moss leads the MLB in strikeouts this June with 19 in 40 ABs, good for a 41.3K%.  Only Adam Dunn's 42.1K% is higher and Mike Zunino's 40K% is the only other hitter being sent back to their bench via the punchout in at least 40% of their June ABs.Wade Miley has made 3 starts in June, lasting just 18 innings and allowed 6...yes 6 home runs.  That is twice as many as any other starter in the MLB this June.  Somehow he has limited the damage as he has surrender just 9 earned runs (10 unearned), but his ERA sits at 4.50 for the month.Ubaldo Jimenez is having trouble locating his pitches and has issued 14 base on balls in, 14 innings pitched, over 3 starts!  He has lost 2 of his 3 starts and owns a 5.79 ERA in June.There are only 2 pitchers in baseball who have allowed more than 22 hits this month and believe it or not, it's Jon Lester and Max Scherzer.  Lester has allowed 24 hits over 19 innings pitched while Scherzer has allowed 23 hits over 22.1 IP.  They have managed to control the fire as Lester's ERA is under 3.00 at 2.84 and Scherzer's 3.22 ERA is not terrible.No pitcher has had a tougher month of June than Eric Stults, who owns a 9.45 ERA and lasted just 13.1 innings across 3 starts for the San Diego Padres.  Verlander is the only other starter with an ERA over 8 at 8.53.  Samardzija's 7.88 ERA is good for 3rd worst.
