Jason Motte (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list Sunday.
He should immediately settle into an eighth-inning set-up role with Trevor Rosenthal remaining as the team's closer. Yes, Rosenthal has had his ups and downs, but manager Mike Matheny hasn;t even hinted at the notion of changing closers and he certainly isn't going to thrust Motte into the job right from the start upon his return from Tommy John surgery. Grab him if you need holds, though.ANALYST: Howard Bender
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
