Darren Collison stepped up in the absence of Jamal Crawford (Achilles) as he dropped a game-high 28 points on the TWolves with three boards, seven dimes, and a steal in the win.

Collison outscored the TWolves himself in the third quarter 16-15. DC has now played 40-plus minutes in each of his last two games and should continue to see plenty of time while Jamal Crawford is out making him a must target in DFS play while his price tag is still relatively inexpensive compared to his recent production.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Chris Bassitt allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six batters over seven innings against the Indians on Thursday.

Bassitt has been solid for the Athletics of late as he has now allowed three runs or less in each if his last five starts but has yet to register a win in his efforts. Now sitting 0-4 with a 3.10 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and a 27:12 K:BB rate through 40 2/3 innings, Bassitt remains a solid deep league investment while he is throwing relatively well. He will be on the hunt for win No. 1 when he takes on the Orioles on Tuesday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Carlos Carrasco allowed just one run on two hits and one walk while striking out seven batters over nine innings against the Athletics on Thursday.

After surrendering six runs in his previous outing, Carrasco was able to get himself back on track Thursday night as he allowed just one run while going the distance. He is now sitting 11-8 with a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP an a 140:27 K:BB rate through 21 starts, which is more than enough to warrant must-start consideration despite a high earned-run average at this point in the season. Carrasco will look for win No. 12 when he takes on the Angels on Tuesday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Chris Taylor was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma

The Mariners are expected to call up top prospect Ketel Marte to help fill in for the injury Robinson Cano. There is nothing official about Marte's call up to the bigs but he was pulled from Tacoma's lineup in El Paso on Thursday. The Mariners are also expected to recall Jesus Montero for the departed Dustin Ackley.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Adam Duvall and Keury Mella were traded to the Reds in exchange for Mike Leake

Duvall is a 26-year old who is enjoying 26 home runs in 443 plate appearances at Triple-A with a career-best.269 ISO. Mella is considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Giants system. It's a bit of a steep price to pay for a rental, but this is what going for it is all about. Maybe Duvall gets a late-season look in the outfield but he's not supplanting Todd Frazier or Joey Votto anytime soon. Analysis: Howard Bender
