Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) practiced again on Friday.

Billy Butler went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored against the Rockies on Monday.

Butler is now slashing .254/.315/.366 with six home runs and 34 RBI through his first 276 at-bats with the Athletics, but is hitting a mere .233 with just eight RBI in the month of June. Until he proves he is completely out of his current funk he should only be used in deep league formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 connecting on his third home run of the season against the Rockies on Monday.

Davis has been far from being a reliable fantasy option this season as he is now slashing .271/.331/.429 with three home runs through just 133 at-bats. At this point in his career he is nothing more than an option to start against right-handed pitching, but even then he hasn't give much fantasy production.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 connecting on his 11th home run of the season with a pair of RBI and two runs scored against the Rockies on Monday.

Reddick ha bounced back nicely in 2015 as he is now slashing .287/.347/.474 with 11 home runs and 48 RBI through 268 at-bats. Until he proves otherwise, Reddick remains a must-start in all fantasy formats while ranking seventh in RBI production in the American League.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Kendall Graveman tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just five hits and three walks while striking out three batters against the Rockies on Monday.

Graveman has really picked up the pace in the month of June as he has now allowed two runs or less in each of his last five starts. He is sitting 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and a 44:23 K:BB rate through 12 starts, but will need to work on his .272 BAA before becoming a must-own outside of deep league formats. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Mariners on Saturday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

David Hale coughed up five runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out two batters over seven innings against the Athletics on Monday.

Hale has now allowed five runs in each if his last three starts as he continues to struggle in his first year with the Rockies. Unless he is able to lower his .302 BAA and find a way to limit his home runs allowed (11) there is little chance he ever gains enough value to warrant fantasy consideration in 2015. He will look to turn his season around when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-5 connecting on his 10th home run of the season against the Athletics on Monday.

Blackmon accounted for the team's only run on Monday night as he was able to go yard in the eighth inning. He is now slashing .275/.349/.446 with 10 home runs, 33 RBI, 45 runs scored an 21 steals through 287 at-bats which makes him one of the better all around players to own moving forward.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 connecting on his second home run of the season against the Yankees on Monday.

Cron saw his first big league action since June 11 on Monday night and made it count as he smashed his second home run of the year in the Angels' win. However, it is hard to imagine he will get enough regular at-bats to warrant fantasy consideration so no need to go running to the waiver wire to add him at this time.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 connecting on his 20th home run of the season while adding a stolen base against the Yankees on Monday.

Trout is now slashing .300/.390/.583 with 20 home runs, 43 RBI, 56 runs scored and nine RBI as he remains one of the best players to own at this point in the season. Although his run production has been down of late (only 3 RBI over last 10 games) there is no reason for fantasy owners to be concerned considering he has always battled back from slumps quickly in the past.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Huston Street earned his 22nd save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the Yankees on Monday.

Street has now converted 22 of his first 25 save chances this season as he remains one of the better closers to own in the American League. As long as he continues to average one strikeout per inning while limiting his walks (9 BB) there is no reason to think his current pace will come to an end down the stretch.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

C.J. Wilson allowed just one run on five hits and three walks while striking out five batters over six innings against the Yankees on Monday.

After allowing seven earned runs in his previous start Wilson was able to get himself back on track Monday night, tossing six strong innings against the Yankees. He is now sitting 6-6 with a 3.78 ERA 1.19 WHIP an a 89:32 K:BB rate, which is more than enough to warrant a start in all fantasy formats every time he takes the hill. Wilson will look to stay on track when he takes on the Rangers on Sunday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

CC Sabathia allowed four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five batters over 7 1/3 innings against the Angels on Monday.

Sabathia has had a rough go at it of late as he has now allowed 13 earned runs over his last three starts while failing to register a win since June 7. He is now sitting 3-8 with a 5.59 ERA 1.40 WHIP and a .299 BAA, so those faithful owners will want to be selective when using the big lefty down the stretch. Sabathia will look to get back on track when he takes on the A's on Tuesday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 connecting on his sixth home run of the season against the Dodgers on Monday.

Castillo is now slashing .210/.267/.412 with six home runs and 19 RBI through 119 at-bats this season as he tries to make his latest team a permanent destination. However, outside of the home run category Castillo will leave much to be desired so no reason to add him outside of very deep NL-only leagues.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
