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
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
