Fantasy Player Updates & News

Nick Young topped his season-high, again, in a losing effort to the Bulls in overtime. Young finished with game-high 31 points, five rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 43 minutes off the bench.

Young had set a new career-high in his previous game and he topped that 29-point performance on Monday as he continues to be one of the top offensive producers for the Lakers despite coming off the bench.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Red Sox acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Rangers for cash.

Peguero, who was designated for assignment last week, posted a .186/.310/.414 triple slash with four homers across 30 games for the Rangers this season.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs scored during Wednesday’s 12-3 win over the Rangers.

The month of May continues to be an age of ridiculousness for Kipnis as he is now batting .447 (46-for-103) with 13 doubles, three triple, four home runs, 14 RBI and 28 runs scored in this month alone. What more can you say that these numbers don’t scream on their own. The best we can say here is that we hope you listened when we preached patience with Kipnis back in April when his performance was flushable. The benefits you’re reaping right now could prove to be the difference-maker in a championship run. Analysis: Howard Bender

Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 with two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base during Wednesday’s win over the Rangers.

It’s been a little bit of a rough return for Bourn who is still hitting just .243 on the season. What’s worse is the stolen bases, or lack thereof, should we say. He’s got four steals and has been caught stealing three times, so the net steals is obviously not good. However, he now has two steals in his last seven games, so perhaps we’re looking at the start of something more. Analysis: Howard Bender

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Chisenhall is nothing like the hitter he was to start off last season as these hits actuall ended a 1-for-24 slump and actually raised his batting average to a .216 mark. We were all well aware that he was playing over his head last year based on his second-half collapse, so coming into this year thinking that he was something that he wasn’t was a gross misjudgment on the part of his owners. He is nothing more than a below-average play at third or the corner infield position. Analysis: Howard Bender

Joe Wieland is lined up at Triple-A Oklahoma City for Tuesday's double header.

Wieland first and only start at the big-league level this season, which came at Milwaukee back on May 6th, did not go well. Things are not likely to be any easier at Colorado on Tuesday. Analysis: Nate Miller

Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Donaldson is white hot at the moment, registering seven hits—four being home runs—in his last three games. He absolutely destroyed all White Sox pitching and all of Chicago is happy they don’t have to face Donaldson anymore. He is the top fantasy third baseman at the moment and he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Analysis: Colby Conway

Nick Swisher went 2-for-5 with a solo home run during the Indians’ 12-3 pasting of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Swisher’s late start to the season was tough to get through at times, but he’s now hit safely in six of his last eight games and has two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored in that span. He’s got a long way to go before he returns to his must-own form, but slow and stead seems to be working for him and his reconstructed knees. If he can stay healthy, he might be a real strong second-half play. Analysis: Howard Bender

Marco Estrada allowed three earned runs on eight hits with two strikeouts in seven innings against the White Sox on Wednesday.

While he has tallied two straight quality starts, he hasn’t been of real fantasy importance. He has allowed seven earned runs on 14 hits in his last 14 innings pitched, but has accrued a pedestrian 7:3 K/BB ratio during that span. He hasn’t been doing much that is of fantasy importance, so he can be left off rosters in most leagues. His next start will come on Tuesday against the Washington Nationals. Analysis: Colby Conway

J.B. Shuck went 2-for-5 with one RBI and a stolen base on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Shuck is the only real backup outfielder on roster, so he will be the main beneficiary of any injury in the team’s outfield. Once Avisail Garcia returns from knee inflammation, Shuck will return to his role as a backup outfielder in Chicago. His fantasy value is very limited, seeing that he doesn’t have a full-time gig and there isn’t much of a track record revealing fantasy stardom. Analysis: Colby Conway
