James Loney went 3-for-4 with one RBI and a run scored during the Rays' 4-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Loney hot hitting continued on Saturday and is now 12-for-26 over his last six games, while he rides a nine-game hitting streak. After a slow start to the season Loney now owns a .321 average with one home run and 15 RBI hitting in the middle of the Rays order. He isn't owned in many leagues throughout the major providers, so if you are searching for help in the batting average category he's the man to get. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
