Updated: Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to miss a game Sunday against the San Diego Chargers due to a concussion. He didn't practice Thursday. Bowe got injured during a hit from Indianapolis Colts safety LaRon Landry that drew a penalty.

Eugenio Suarez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.

Suarez notched his second home run of the season, and has six hits in his last three games to see his AVG balloon to .328 on the season. He took over for Zack Cozart after he went down with an injury and has been able to fill the role nicely with ten RBI and three stolen bases to boot. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Marlon Byrd was 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Tuesday against Minnesota.

The veteran extended his hitting streak to six game with the solo shot, his 13th of the season. He hasn't hit for average this season, but still has an .752 OPS with a .457 SLG. He might be another trade bait options if the Reds decide to sell at the deadline with some cheap power and ability to play the outfield. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Anthony DeSclafani went 6 2/3 innings, but gave up six runs on 11 hits after striking out seven in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.

For some reason, manager Bryan Price allowed DeSclafani to go back out for the seventh inning even though he was over 100 pitches and would be seeing the lineup for a fourth time. It blew up in the Reds' face as the Twins put up four runs and sealed the game when DeSclafani turned the game over to Burke Badenhop, who allowed all inherited runners to score. Don't look just at the box score on this one, DeSclafani pitched well and had seven strikeouts but couldn't cover his manager's error. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Glen Perkins nailed down his 25th save of the season, allowing one walk but striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning on Tuesday.

With the surprise success of the Twins, Perkins has turned into quite the fantasy stud as a closer. He has yet to blow a save in 25 chances this season, and now has gone nine straight games with out allowing a run. Perkins doesn't strike out as many guys as the typical closer, but 29 in 32 1/3 innings is just fine as he supports an 0.96 WHIP and 1.39 ERA. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Phil Hughes last 6 2/3 innings after giving up seven hits and four runs, two earned, while striking out four in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Hughes provided his fifth straight quality start in June as he improved to 7-6 on the season, 3-2 in the month, with his third straight win. He has a problem giving up the long ball as a flyball pitcher, giving up one long ball in five straight games. His ability to limit walks is what makes him an effective fantasy pitcher with a 1.21 WHIP and 4.10 ERA as his strikeout totals are not going to blow you away. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Edurado Nunez was 3-for-4 with a double, two runs, an RBI and a walk on Tuesday against Cincinnati.

Nunez still isn't getting full-time starts at shortstop, but when he is starting, he is producing. In addition to his 3-for-4 night, he added a stolen base, his third of the season. In 33 games, Nunez has seen 95 AB and has two homers, 11 RBI and an OPS of .865 while his average sits at .305. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Torii Hunter was 3-for-5 with a solo home run, double, and two runs on Tuesday against the Reds.

Hunter has a hit in his last four games as well at least one in 10-of-11 games. He has rediscovered his power stroke, hitting four homers and five double overs that period. Hunter has shifted into the two-spot and is seeing more AB as well as scoring more runs. He has seven runs in four games and can also drive in runs with five over that stretch as he wraps up a nice month of June. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Ian Kennedy allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out five batters over five innings against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Despite allowing four runs Kennedy didn't actually pitch all that bad on Tuesday night with only one run being credited to the Padres hurler. He is now sitting 4-7 with a 4.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and a 70:23 K:BB rate through 14 starts, but having now allowed just four earned runs over his last four starts Kennedy is someone worth targeting off the waiver wire especially with solid strikeout to walk numbers. Kennedy will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Cardinals on Sunday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mike Montgomery tossed his second straight complete game shutout on Tuesday allowing just one hit and four walks while striking out seven against the Padres.

Montgomery continues to find success in his first season in the big leagues as he is now sitting 3-2 with a 1.62 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and a 29:12 K:BB rate through six starts for the Mariners. Although his minor league track record does not support his current pace he still remains a solid starter to own until he shows different, especially while opponents are hitting a mere .178 against him. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Athletics on Sunday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Brad Miller went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored against the Padres on Tuesday.

Despite a solid effort on Tuesday night, Miller is having himself a rough season as he is slashing .237/.316/.404 with seven home runs, 22 RBI and six steals through 228 at-bats. Outside of being a cheap option in DFS leagues, Miller should remain un-owned in most instances.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mike Zunino went 1-for-4 connecting on his ninth home run of the season against the Padres on Tuesday.

Zunino continues to be an all-or-nothing player for both the Mariners and his fantasy owners as he is now slashing .167/.234/.321 with nine home runs and 18 RBI through 215 at-bats. We all know he can be a solid power bat from the catcher position, but until he starts to lower his strikeout rate (87 K) and raises his batting average, that power is going to go to waste.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Chris Bassitt allowed just one run on five hits and no walks while striking out three batters over five innings against the Rockies on Tuesday.

With Sonny Gray experiencing flu-like symptoms, Bassitt was called upon to start Tuesday night and held his own against the Rockies. Although it is not official just yet, Bassitt will likely be heading back to Triple-A but would likely be the first to get the call if another starter is needed down the line.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

LaTroy Hawkins earned his second save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Hawkins logged his first save since the beginning of April on Tuesday night, but is not expected to be used in the closer role once John Axford returns from a family emergency. At this point Hawkins is nothing more than a hold league play and should only be owned in the deepest of formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Jorge De La Rosa tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just four hits and four walks while striking out four batters against the Athletics on Tuesday.

De La Rosa has now allowed two runs or less in four of his last five starts as he continues to have a decent season with the Rockies. He is sitting 5-3 with a 4.59 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and a 60:35 K:BB rate through 12 starts, making him strictly a deep league play, especially with the summer in full swing in the Mile High City. De La Rosa will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Sunday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
