Ji-Man Choi Headshot

Ji-Man Choi went 1-for-4 with a home run, one RBI, and one run scored in the Angels 7-2 loss to the Astros on Saturday.

This was Choi’s second home run of the season and also his second in the past week. Though Choi has flashed intriguing power in his brief stint in the big leagues, he has failed to show that he can hit for average as he has 13 strikeouts in 49 at-bats and has just six hits that are not home runs. In addition, he is in a time share with Jefry Marte at first base. Given all that, there isn’t much fantasy relevance for Choi.

Collin McHugh Headshot

Colin McHugh allowed six hits and two earned runs while walking none and striking out six over six innings in the Astros 7-2 win over the Angels on Saturday .

McHugh has been excellent in the past month and a half and today was no exception. Since June 15, he has posted a quality start in each of his seven starts. In that stretch, his ERA has fallen from 5.22 to 4.18. He will look to keep the impressive stretch of pitching going in his next scheduled start, which will come on Friday at Detroit.

Carlos Correa Headshot

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a home run, one RBI, and two runs scored in the Astros 7-2 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Correa hit his 15th home run of the season on Saturday but it was his first since July 8th and only second of the month. Despite just a .238 average on the month, he has driven in 14 runners and scored 11 runs. Those are certainly valuable counting stats and have helped pace him towards over 100 RBI for the season. He will try to build off his multi-hit performance tomorrow when the Astros take on righty Tim Lincecum and Correa has a very healthy .880 OPS against right-handed pitching this season.

Ryan Zimmerman Headshot

Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

With his rehab progressing well, Ryan Zimmerman is in line to be activated by the Nationals on Tuesday. Zimmerman's return may have a domino effect as players will have to be shuffled. Daniel Murphy has been playing first base with rookie Trea Turner at second in his absence. Turner also logged time in the outfield at Triple-A in an attempt to stay with the team for the rest of the year but if he stays, could Michael Taylor be optioned? It remains to be seen but when Zimmernan returns we will know more. Of course these decisions may occur following when weekly leagues lock on Monday so be careful with Zimmerman, Turner and Taylor in the week ahead. Zimmeran is hitting .221/.284/.402 through 74 games this year with 12 home runs and 38 RBI.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis Headshot

Brewers center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four runs batted in against the Cubs on Saturday.

Captain Kirk provided plenty of fireworks tonight, as he hit his sixth and seventh home runs of the year and drove in four against the Cubs. Prior to tonight’s game, the 28-year-old was hitting just .083 in the month of July, so tonight’s breakout game is a bit of a surprise for everyone. Nieuwenhuis has started in just one out of the last four Brewers games and is simply a bench player for Milwaukee moving forward. Feel free to ignore him in all fantasy formats moving forward.

Evan Gattis Headshot

Evan Gattis went 2-for-3 with two home runs, four RBI, and two runs scored in the Astros 7-2 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Gattis had a big day and singlehandedly propelled the Astros to victory on Saturday. His four RBI tied a season best and was the 10th game in which he has recorded multiple RBI on the season. July has been his worst month of his disappointing season as entered today with just a .583 OPS for the month. He will hope to use this to kick start his season when the Astros take on Tim Lincecum tomorrow, though he has a poor .620 OPS against right-handed pitching this season.

Zach Davies Headshot

Brewers starter Zach Davies had a great outing on Saturday, allowing just one earned run on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts over six and a third innings pitched in a win over the Cubs.

Davies made easy work out of a tricky Cubs lineup today, as he allowed just one extra-base hit in his six and a third innings pitched. He also allowed just five base runners, which is most certainly a recipe for success against Chicago. The 23-year-old hasn’t posted great strikeout totals in his last four games, striking out just 15 hitters, but he’s now won two out of his last three starts and has allowed just three earned runs in his last 20 innings pitched. His next start will come at home against the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Davies should be heavily considered for daily fantasy purposes in his next start as the Diamondbacks are one of the worst teams Major League Baseball in terms of runs scored away from home in 2016.

Jonathan Lucroy Headshot

Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored, and a two-run home run against the Cubs on Saturday.

Lucroy slugged his 13th home run of the season off of John Lackey in the first inning which gave the Brewers an early 2-0 lead. He also was able to reach base twice via walks and ended up scoring an additional run when Kirk Nieuwenhuis went deep in the eighth inning. Lucroy’s name has been frequently dropped in trade talks, and it’s easy to see why teams are interested in him this year as he’s hitting .302 with 13 homers, 50 runs batted in, and an OPS of .856 this season. The 30-year-old has hit the ball well on a consistent basis all year and there’s no reason to believe that he will slow down anytime soon. He’ll face off against left-hander Jon Lester tomorrow who was fantastic in his first start since the All-Star break when he allowed just one earned run in seven and two-thirds innings pitched.

Dexter Fowler Headshot

Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Brewers on Saturday.

In his second game back off the disabled list, Fowler went hitless and struck out twice against Zach Davies and the Brewers bullpen. The 2016 All-Star sat out for over a month with a hamstring injury and celebrated his return yesterday by homering and driving in three runs. The 30-year-old is hitting .293 with eight home runs, 31 runs batted in, and a .895 OPS this season. He should continue to be a great fantasy option in center field in all formats for the rest of the season. Fowler will be hitting from the left side of the plate of Sunday against Junior Guerra, who has allowed left-handed batters to hit just .192 against him this season.
