James Loney went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored against the Indians on Saturday.
Loney continues to be one of the most consistent hitters in the Rays lineup this season, now sitting on a .326 average with one home run and 21 RBI through his first 129 at-bats. Although he never matured in the home run department since being promoted to the big leagues, he can be of great assistance to a team in need of help in the batting average category if available on the waiver wire.

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
