Kyle Korver extended his NBA-record of consecutive 3-pointers made to 116 games.

Korver made one lone three out of five attempts Tuesday to keep his streak alive. Korver finished with nine points, four rebounds, three assists, and a steal in the 89-85 home loss to the Pacers. It was first game in his last five that Korver failed to reach double-figures in points. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Salvador Perez said he took and passed a concussion test after Tuesday's game.

Perez left the game for precautionary reasons in the eighth inning after taking a foul ball off his face mask. His fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much at this point though he could still get the day off Wednesday. Drew Butera would get most of the work behind the plate if Perez did miss any time. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Brandon Barnes went 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

With Corey Dickerson on the DL, Barnes has seen very regular playing time, but he hasn’t done much with it. A .500 BABIP has him with a .395 batting average, but that obviously won’t hold. And he has yet to steal a base or hit a home, plus he drew his first walk in Game 1 of the doubleheader. His success so far will be short-lived once his BABIP crashes or once Dickerson returns. Analysis: Brett Talley

Nick Hundley went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs and two RBI in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Hundley won’t keep hitting .294 once his .354 BABIP tails off, but something in the .265 range from here on out is reasonable. He’s obviously taken well to his new home ball park, so he could have another 8-10 home runs in his bat in addition to the five he already has. He continues to get most of the work behind the plate, and his value should largely remain intact as long as that remains the case. Analysis: Brett Talley

Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and a run in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Gonzalez just doesn’t have the speed he used to have, and it’s affecting his steals (one this year) as well as his BABIP and, in turn, his batting average. That’s particularly a problem given that he’s always been a heavy groundball hitter, and he’s hitting more groundballs than ever this year. His strikeout and walk skills are better than his career averages, and his hard hit ball percentage is well below its norm to the point where some regression is in order. So maybe some sort of bounce back should be coming. Analysis: Brett Talley

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Tulo has three home runs in his last five games, so his power may finally be starting to come around. The problem is that he’s still striking out much more and walking much less than he ever has before. Thankfully he continues to roll with a high BABIP which keeps his batting average well above average. Analysis: Brett Talley

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-3 with two runs, a walk and a steal in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Colorado.

Rollins’ batting average has really hurt fantasy owners this year, but his strikeout rate is virtually what it was last year, and a .223 BABIP is the main problem. He’s still roughly on pace for 15 home runs and 15 steals, so he makes for a decent waiver addition or buy low in deeper leagues. Analysis: Brett Talley

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Colorado.

Gonzalez’s power production has leveled off, but his line drive rate and BABIP are still unsustainably high. But he’s still on pace for 25+ home runs, 100+ RBI, 80+ runs and above average batting average, so you’re getting at least what you expected from Gonzalez. Analysis: Brett Talley

Alex Guerrero hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the top of the ninth to erase a three-run deficit in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Colorado.

Guerrero did start Game 1 of the doubleheader, and with Scott van Slyke on the DL, there should be a path to even more regular playing time for Guerrero. Guerrero is doing a poor man’s version of what teammate Joc Pederson is doing, which is hitting home runs on more than 30 percent of his fly balls. That obviously isn’t sustainable, but Guerrero is well on his way to 20 home runs, if not 25. Analysis: Brett Talley

Enrique Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Colorado.

Hernandez played in both games of the doubleheader, which was strange given that he hadn’t started since May 24. With only 179 career plate appearances it’s hard to evaluate Hernandez, and as little as he’s playing it probably doesn’t matter anyway. NL-only leaguers might have use for Hernandez if he starts playing more regularly. Analysis: Brett Talley

Rafael Betancourt blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning of Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader with the Dodgers by giving up a grand slam to Alex Guerrero.

John Axford closed out Game 1 of the doubleheader, so Betancourt got the save opportunity in Game 2. Axford is 10-for-10 in save opportunities so far this year, so he probably had a good hold on the ninth inning job to begin with. But Betancourt’s blown save on Tuesday probably tightened Axford’s hold. Analysis: Brett Talley

David Hale allowed four runs and seven hits with no walks and five strikeouts in six innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Hale was called up to be the Rockies 26th man for the doubleheader, so he’ll likely be back in Triple-A tomorrow. Hale had a 5.97 ERA in six starts at Triple-A, so it's hard to believe he’d have much success were he to get another shot with the big league club. Analysis: Brett Talley

Kenley Jansen recorded his fifth save of the season against the Rockies on Tuesday allowing one hit and striking out two.

Jansen has 11 strikeouts and no walks in six innings since returning from the DL. He has unquestionably rejoined the elite closer group.  Analysis: Brett Talley

Zack Greinke allowed five runs and ten hits with one walk and two strikeouts in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader with Colorado.

Coors isn’t an automatic death knell for pitchers, especially aces like Greinke, but it can obviously get the best of any pitcher. Greinke entered the game with a 1.48 ERA and 3.45 xFIP, so he’s been pitching over his head a bit, and regression happening at Coors isn’t the worst thing since some owners might have left him on the bench (some…maybe). But his ERA is still under 2.00 so more regression is coming. That said, his skills will prevent regression from being too steep. Analysis: Brett Talley

Joc Pederson went 3-for-8 with two home runs, a triple, and four RBI in the doubleheader against Colorado on Tuesday.

Pederson has now homered in four straight games and has 16 home runs on the year. Fantasy writers have been saying for a while now that he simply can’t keep this pace up as his HR/FB rate is over 30 percent. And it’s true that he can’t keep this pace up, but he has yet to slow down. He has to cut down on the strikeouts at some point, and he hasn’t been overly efficient on the base paths. But the potential is enormous if he improves those things, and he’s starting from a high jumping off point to begin with. Analysis: Brett Talley

Ben Paulsen went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored RBI in Game 1 of the doubleheader against Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Paulsen missed a few games over the weekend with migraines, but other than that he’s been playing almost every day recently. He’s had some BABIP luck in a small 50 plate appearance sample size, but he is hitting for some power. Half of his 16 hits have gone for extra bases with Tuesday’s home run being his fourth. We’ve heard nothing about the status of Justin Morneau lately, so expect Paulsen to keep playing regularly for now. Analysis: Brett Talley
