Hitters

Jose Bautista went 2-for-4 with two home runs, two runs scored, and three RBI in the win over the Red Sox Saturday. The first home run was Bautista's 200th of his career. The two homer game was Jose Bautista's 19 multi-home run game since 2010, which is five more than any other player in that span.
Jason Kipnis has been one of the hottest hitters going the last 30 days hitting .419 (1st) with four home runs, 25 RBI (3rd), and nine stole bases (top 10).
Chase Utley went 2-for-5 with two solo-shots in the loss to the Pirates Saturday. Chase Utley is on pace to play 133 games, hit 28 home runs, score 80 runs, knock in 75 RBI, and steal 15 bases. If Utley continues on this pace it would be his best season since 2009.
Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a home run, double, two runs scored, three RBI, and a stole base in Saturday's win over the Phillies. Hanley Ramirez extended his hit streak to 11 games Saturday, is hitting .500 (20-for-40) over his last 12 games, and is now hitting .394 on the season with six home runs, 17 RBI, and three stolen bases in 25 games.
Pedro Alvarez went 1-for-3 Saturday with a tap measure blast to extend his career long hit streak to 12 games in the 2-1 win over the Brewers. The home run was El Toro's 20th of the season, one shy of the National League lead (Domonic Brown & Carlos Gonzalez). Alvarez has been on a torrid pace in the month of June hitting .330 with 10 home runs, 15 runs scored, and 24 RBI, a pace he is unlikely to keep up, but enjoy it while it lasts.Pitchers
Francisco Liriano allowed just one run on seven hits, one walk, and struck out six as the Pirates won their Major League leading 50th win. Liriano brought his overall to 7-3 and is now 4-1 at home. Liriano has not allowed more than 2 runs in five of his last six starts and eight of his ten starts this season. Liriano has struck out 67 batters in 60.2 innings pitched this season to go with a 2.27 ERA.
Esmil Rogers pitched six scoreless innings allowing six hits, one walk, and struck out six in the no-decision Saturday against the Red Sox who would go on to win the game 6-2. Rogers has been very effective since joining the Jays starting rotation on May 29th. Rogers has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his six starts having allowed only eight runs over 33 innings pitched with 24 strike outs to nine walks. Combine Rogers success with the fact that the Jays are a team that usually provides plenty of run support and you can consider looking to Rogers to make spot starts for your Fantasy team.
Fernando Rodney pitched two scoreless innings for win over the Tigers Saturday in 10 innings. Rodney has 5.1 inning scoreless streak going and since he pitched two innings (32 pitches) Saturday, it is unlikely he will be available Sunday.

Love how just now people are viewing Adrian Peterson's contract smh It's all a business don't let them fool you

@scottvickers f'n bullpen

#Tigers J.D. Martinez with his 9th ninth inning home run...did I hear that right?

#Tigers Dan Dickerson is arguably the best play-by-play announcer in the game. I felt J.D. Martinez's HR call down my spine.
