Paul Pierce was taken to the locker room with a possible shoulder injury. His return is questionable.

There are a lot of DFS players out there hoping Pierce returns. Continue to check back here for updates on his injury. AK-47 ( Andrei Kirilenko) will likely be the main benefactor if this is a long term injury. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan

Brandon Crawford went 2-for-4 with a hone run, two RBI and a run scored against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Crawford continues to have himself a solid season as he is now slashing .297/.369/.511 with eight home runs and 36 RBI through his first 182 at-bats. Considering he is a career .248 hitter, a return to the mean could be in store for the Giants shortstop, but as long as he continues to flash the power bat he is a must-start in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Chris Heston allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six batters over just 3 2/3 innings against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Heston was roughed up on Tuesday and has now allowed five or more runs in three of his last four starts. He is sitting 5-4 with a 4.29 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and a 55:18 K:BB rate through 11 starts, but if he doesn't turn things around fast he will be on the outside looking in among the Giants starters in no time. He will look to turn things around when he takes on the Mets on Tuesday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mark Melancon earned his 15th save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Tuesday.

Melancon continues to be one of the most efficient closers in the National League as he has now converted 15 of his first 16 save chances while sitting on a 2.52 ERA, 1.12 WHIP an a 13:5 K:BB rate. Considering he has now pitched each of the last two days Melancon will likely get the day off on Wednesday if a save situation arises.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

A.J. Burnett allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five batters over five innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

Burnett wasn't the most efficient pitcher to take the mound on Tuesday night but he managed to improve to 6-1 after out-dueling the struggling Chris Heston. He is now sitting on a 2.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 64:22 K:BB rate through his first 11 starts which makes him a must-start on all formats as long as he breaks out of his current funk. Look for Burnett to keep his win streak alive when he takes on the Brewers on Monday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Jordy Mercer went 2-for-4 connecting on his first home run of the season against the Giants on Tuesday.

Despite a nice showing on Tuesday Mercer has been far from a fantasy option this seas as he is now slashing just .201/.260/.254 through 134 at-bats. Unless things change fast there is no reason he should be owned in any fantasy format. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Andrew McCutchen went 4-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a pair of runs scored against the Giants on Tuesday.

McCutchen continues to be one of the best hitter since the start of May as he is now slashing .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs, 34 RBI and 30 runs scored through 185 at-bats. Although his current pace is likely to settle as the month goes on McCutchen is still one of the elite players to own in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Derek Norris went 2-for-4 connecting on his fifth home run of the season with two RBI and a run scored against the Mets on Tuesday.

Norris continues to find success in his first season with the Padres as he is now slashing .287/.327/.468 with fie home runs and 34 RBI through 188 at-bats. Barring a significant setback down the stretch Norris remains one of the best catchers to own in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Ian Kennedy allowed just two runs on six hits and tow walks while striking out eight batters over six innings against the Mets on Tuesday.

Kennedy bounced back from a terrible outing his last time on the mound as he is now sitting 3-5 with a 6.60 ERA, 1.47 WHIP an a 45:16 K:BB rate. Although his numbers suggest he is not worth starting, if he can find a way to build off of Tuesday's start there is still hope for him fantasy value long term. He will look to stay on track when he takes on the Braves on Monday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Noah Syndergaard was touched up for seven runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters through just four innings against the Padres on Tuesday.

The Mets rookie had the worst start of his young career on Tuesday night as he allowed more runs (7) than he had in his previous four starts (5 ER) combined. Despite his recent struggles Syndergaard remains one of the best young arms in all of baseball, but fantasy owners may want to let him get back on track before starting him again. He will look to rebound when he takes on the Giants on Tuesday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and a run scored against the Padres on Tuesday.

Cuddyer logged his first multi-hit game in his last four contests on Tuesday as he was the sole bright spot in the Mets lineup on Tuesday. However, he is far from being a must-start fantasy option as he is now slashing .271/.333/.409 with five home runs and 23 RBI through his first 181 at-bats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Fernando Rodney was charged with his third blown-save of the season Tuesday after allowing one run on two hits and one walk in the ninth inning.

Rodney continues to struggle in his second season with the Mariners as he is quickly is starting to lose grip on the closer role. At this point Rodney owners need to be weary of his status as he continues to blow games, but for now he is still the team's closer for now.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mike Montgomery allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four batters over six innings against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Montgomery made his MLB debut on Tuesday night and did a respectable job against one of the better offenses in the American League but fell short of recording his first win of the season. It is unknown how long he will be in the Mariners starting rotation so outside of deep league formats he should stay off the radar.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Andrew Miller logged his 16th save despite allowing one run on two hits while striking out two batters in the 11th inning.

Miller gave up his first run since May 19 on Tuesday night but managed to work through a jam to help the Yankees to their second straight win against the Mariners. He has now converted all 16 of his save chances while holding down a 1.16 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and a 37:9 K:BB rate as he continues to be one of the better closers to own in all of baseball.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

CC Sabathia allowed two runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six batters over 5 2/3 innings against the Mariners on Tuesday.

After allowing 11 total runs over his previous two starts Sabathia got himself back on track but fell short of logging his first win since May 16. He is now sitting 2-7 with a 5.45 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and a 57:14 K:BB rate through 11 starts and should only be a deep league play in desperate situations. Sabathia will look to stay on track when he takes on the Nationals on Tuesday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Garrett Jones went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Jones is now slashing .254/.290/.407 with two home runs and seven RBI through 59 at-bats for the Yankees as he continues to be used off the bench. Unless he starts receiving more regular at-bats Jones remains a far reach in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
