Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Braves on Tuesday.

Stanton has now hit safely in five of his last six games and has two home runs with five RBI and three runs scored in that span. Streaks like that will come and go for the 24-year old slugger, but overall, he is doing exactly what he's done in the past. His strikeouts are too high but he is still able to post a solid walk rate and his .280 ISO is just a hair above his career average.There is little reason to believe that he won't continue to swing a big bat, so grab those counting stats and enjoy. ANALYST: Howard Bender

Adam Wainwright (Achilles) said he has been able to do everything he wanted as far as working out. There’s been zero pain,he said. I feel completely normal at all times.

Wainwright tore his Achilles in late April and is still trying to fight his way back in time for the playoffs. With St. Louis having a great start to the season, there's a good chance that they will reach the post season and might have a chance to get their ace back. For now, it is safe to pass on the veteran as he won't be having any fantasy impact for your team in the future. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jhonny Peralta has nearly a 2.9 million vote lead over San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford as he gets closer to the first All-Star Game starting berth in his career.

The shortstop is having another good year in St. Louis, hitting .303 with 11 homers and 40 RBI. He has been a fantastic signing for the Cardinals since last year and even finished 14th in MVP voting. It should be no surprise that he is in contention for the All-Star spot with voting coming to a close on Thursday. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Yankees announce Nathan Eovaldi will start on Wednesday.

Eovaldi gets the ball on normal rest while Adam Warren will slide to the bullpen. After being acquired from the Marlins, Eovaldi has had a rough time in New York with a 1.543 WHIP and 4.81 ERA, both the highest in his career. His xFIP is almost a full run lower at 3.84 meaning he could see some good fortune in the near future. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jenrry Mejia (suspension) threw a scoreless inning in triple-A Monday.

Mejia is on his way to returning from a 80-game suspension for PEDs and will not be getting his closer spot back with the success of Jeurys Familia. With Bobby Parnell back in the bullpen as well, Mejia might be the seventh inning guy if the Mets call upon his services. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Ethan Martin was outrighted to Double-A Reading on Monday.

Martin hasn't pitched for the Phillies in 2015 and was removed from the 40-man roster. He had pitched in five games this season at the High-A and Double-A levels, going six innings and allowing five earned runs. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis said "it was borderline obvious" that Rodriguez was tipping his pitches when throwing from the stretch against the Orioles last week.

Rodriguez has had a tough go of it lately after a blistering start to his career. He has given up 16 runs in his last three outings, sandwhicing a nice 6 1/3 outing at Kansas City with two stinkers against Toronto and Baltimore. He has a 4.33 ERA in a small sample size, but has provided a nice boost to fantasy owners who picked up the youngster when he was called up in May. Analysis: Rob Trayah

It appears the Yankees have made their decision about the starting rotation, and Adam Warren is headed to the bullpen.

With Ivan Nova back in the fold, Warren is the odd man out of the Yanks' rotation. He had put together a solid start to the season with 14 starts and going 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA, 1.198 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 82 2/3 innings. If injury so fall on any of the starters, you can be sure Warren will be the first name put into the rotation. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Billy Butler went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored against the Rockies on Monday.

Butler is now slashing .254/.315/.366 with six home runs and 34 RBI through his first 276 at-bats with the Athletics, but is hitting a mere .233 with just eight RBI in the month of June. Until he proves he is completely out of his current funk he should only be used in deep league formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 connecting on his third home run of the season against the Rockies on Monday.

Davis has been far from being a reliable fantasy option this season as he is now slashing .271/.331/.429 with three home runs through just 133 at-bats. At this point in his career he is nothing more than an option to start against right-handed pitching, but even then he hasn't give much fantasy production.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 connecting on his 11th home run of the season with a pair of RBI and two runs scored against the Rockies on Monday.

Reddick ha bounced back nicely in 2015 as he is now slashing .287/.347/.474 with 11 home runs and 48 RBI through 268 at-bats. Until he proves otherwise, Reddick remains a must-start in all fantasy formats while ranking seventh in RBI production in the American League.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Kendall Graveman tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just five hits and three walks while striking out three batters against the Rockies on Monday.

Graveman has really picked up the pace in the month of June as he has now allowed two runs or less in each of his last five starts. He is sitting 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and a 44:23 K:BB rate through 12 starts, but will need to work on his .272 BAA before becoming a must-own outside of deep league formats. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Mariners on Saturday.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

David Hale coughed up five runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out two batters over seven innings against the Athletics on Monday.

Hale has now allowed five runs in each if his last three starts as he continues to struggle in his first year with the Rockies. Unless he is able to lower his .302 BAA and find a way to limit his home runs allowed (11) there is little chance he ever gains enough value to warrant fantasy consideration in 2015. He will look to turn his season around when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-5 connecting on his 10th home run of the season against the Athletics on Monday.

Blackmon accounted for the team's only run on Monday night as he was able to go yard in the eighth inning. He is now slashing .275/.349/.446 with 10 home runs, 33 RBI, 45 runs scored an 21 steals through 287 at-bats which makes him one of the better all around players to own moving forward.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 connecting on his second home run of the season against the Yankees on Monday.

Cron saw his first big league action since June 11 on Monday night and made it count as he smashed his second home run of the year in the Angels' win. However, it is hard to imagine he will get enough regular at-bats to warrant fantasy consideration so no need to go running to the waiver wire to add him at this time.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 connecting on his 20th home run of the season while adding a stolen base against the Yankees on Monday.

Trout is now slashing .300/.390/.583 with 20 home runs, 43 RBI, 56 runs scored and nine RBI as he remains one of the best players to own at this point in the season. Although his run production has been down of late (only 3 RBI over last 10 games) there is no reason for fantasy owners to be concerned considering he has always battled back from slumps quickly in the past.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
