Coach Scott Brooks said his range for Caron Butler Tuesday is around 15-24 minutes.

Likely not enough minutes to warrant rostering Butler in his first game with his new team this evening against the 76ers.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Mike Bolsinger allowed two earned runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out three over six innings in the Dodgers 3-0 loss to the Cardinals on Friday.

Bolsinger suffered his first loss of the season on Friday but it was not due to a poor performance as he notched his third straight quality start. In five outings this season Bolsinger is 3-1 with a 1.15 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 25 strikeouts over 31.1 innings. Bolsinger got his first taste of major league action in 2014 and struggled over 10 games (nine starts), going 1-6 with a 5.50 ERA so it will be interesting to see if he can maintain this level of success going forward. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kolten Wong went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs and one stolen base in the Cardinals 3-0 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Wong is enjoying a strong month of May which sees him hitting .333 with 20 runs, five home runs, 16 RBI and two stolen bases. Wong has moved into the leadoff spot for the Cardinals which should all but guarantee a 100 run season to go with his 20hr/20sb potential at the second base position. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 14th save of the season in the Cardinals 3-0 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Rosenthal has been impressive this season as he notched his 14th save to go with a 0.77 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 25 strikeouts over 23.1 innings. Coming off a season where he finished with an impressive 45 saves Rosenthal is already on pace to exceed that total given his current pace. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

John Lackey tossed seven shutout innings on Friday, allowing just five hits while walking one and striking out nine in the Cardinals 3-0 win over the Dodgers.

Lackey struggled a bit following his trade to the Cardinals last season, going 3-3 with a 4.30 ERA over 10 starts but through his first 10 starts in 2015 he is off to a great start with a 3-3 record and a 2.83 ERA. Lackey is in the final year of his contract but is pitching for the veteran minimum due to a clause in his contract with the Red Sox which safeguarded them in case he was forced to miss time due to Tommy John surgery. Lackey is certainly pitching like a man looking for one final contract before he calls is a career and pitcher with that type of motivation should be highly productive. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.

Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Lance McCullers allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits while walking two and striking out seven over 4.1 innings in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.

McCullers found himself working out of jams for the majority of his outing on Friday but was able to escape them without too much harm being done but after loading the bases in the fifth inning he was replaced by reliever Joe Thatcher. McCullers has struggled a bit with efficiency during his first three major league starts, having only made it out of the fifth inning in just one start but despite the high pitch counts he has been able to limit any potential damage. Overall McCullers is 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA while striking out 18 over 15.0 innings. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Gordon Beckham went 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in the White Sox 6-3 win over the Astros on Friday.

Beckham entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning but made his impact felt with an 8th inning home run off reliever Chad Qualls to tie the game at 3-3. For the season Beckham is hitting .260 with eight runs, three home runs and 13 RBI as he finds himself in a utility role off the bench. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

David Robertson pitched a scoreless 11th inning on Friday to pick up his 10th save of the season in the White Sox -3 win over the Astros.

Robertson signed in the off-season after a great first season as the closer for the Yankees and up until recently he had been nearly lights-out but he had blown his previous two saves chances before locking down the ninth inning on Friday. Despite the recent struggles, Robertsons job is not in jeopardy so fantasy owners have no reason to worry.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Carlos Rodon allowed one earned run on eight hits while walking one and striking out four over 6.1 innings in the White Sox 6-3 win over the Astros on Friday.

The biggest takeaway from Rodons start on Friday is the one walk as the rookie had walked 15 over his previous three starts going into the game. Despite his poor control Rodon has tossed back-to-back quality starts, allowing just two earned runs over 12.1 innings. As long as he can reel in his control issues Rodon has the stuff to be an impact pitcher for the White Sox as the season moves along. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Torii Hunter went 1-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in the Twins 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

Hunter is on a tear right now as he extended his hitting streak to eight games on Friday. During the month of May Hunter has turned back the clock, hitting .337 with 19 runs, six home runs and 23 RBI. Overall the 39 year old outfielder is hitting .280 with 25 runs, seven home runs and 30 RBI as he provides fantasy owners with more production than they could have hoped for to this point in the season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Trevor May allowed four earned runs on eight hits while walking one and striking out five over six innings in the Twins 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

May saw his record drop to 3-3 on the season to go with a 5.07 ERA and 1.39 WHIP as the 25 year old continues his rollercoaster season. May had tossed quality starts in his previous two outings but has struggled overall in the month of May, allowing 18 earned runs over 29.1 innings. He will take the mount again on Monday against a tough Royals lineup that torched him for five runs over 5.1 innings in their first meeting this season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Chris Colabello went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in the Blue Jays 6-4 win over the Twins on Friday.

Colabello has enjoyed his time with the Blue Jays as hes hitting .379 with 14 runs, four home runs and 14 RBI over 23 games played. Some fantasy owners may remember Colabello from the first month of the 2014 fantasy season as he drove in 27 RBI for the Twins in April but saw a rapid decline in production which ultimately saw him demoted by the end of May. He is once again off to a hot start to the season so it will be interesting to see if the he can maintain his production level to keep him on the Blue Jays roster. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Josh Donaldson went 2-for-5 with a home run, double, three RBI and a run scored in the Blue Jays 6-4 win over the Twins on Friday.

Donaldson is playing on another level having hit five home runs over the past four games to bring his season total to 14. Donaldson is enjoying a career year following his trade to Toronto as hes hitting .316 with 42 runs, 14 home runs, 38 RBI and two stolen bases which ranks him among the top players in fantasy baseball this season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Mark Buehrle tossed a complete game on Friday, allowing four earned runs on six hits while walking none and striking out three in the Blue Jays 6-4 win over the Twins.

The Blue Jays are certainly getting the mileage out of Buehrles left arm as hes now tossed complete games in two of his last three starts. For the season the veteran southpaw carries a 4.97 ERA and 1.39 WHIP but has wins in 6-of-10 starts thanks to the Blue Jays powerful offense behind him. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
