Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base during the Brewers' 5-4 loss to the Braves on Thursday.
Segura has obviously gotten off to a much slower start this year than he did last and for that, he's being vilified in the fantasy community and being written off by many. Perfect time to buy low. He hit .244 with one home run, five RBI, 11 runs scored and five stolen bases over the first month and has already matched those totals with a .284 average here in May with still another week's worth of games to go. Is it the big breakout that we saw in 2013? No. But he's still on-pace for 30 steals and with steady improvement as the year progresses, he should surpass that total easily. The power he showed early last year was never something anyone expected from him, so don;t expect that again, but the average, the steals and the runs scored are coming. You won;t be disappointed come year end. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jonathan Gray is expected to start for the Rockies Tuesday.
Gray was the third overall pick in 2013, but his minor league numbers have not exactly lived up to his lofty draft status. In 21 games at Triple-A this season, Gray has a 4.33 ERA, 3.89 FIP and 2.68 K/BB rate. While he probably needs to be owned in deeper leagues and keeper leagues, it is going to be awfully hard to feel confident starting him in Coors until he has some big league success. He could be a sneaky tournament play for DFS Tuesday against the strikeout-prone Mariners, but Gray could easily give up five home runs as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Nationals on Sunday.
Duda is absolutely on fire and is a must-start until he shows signs of slowing down. He became the first Mets player in franchise history to hit nine home runs in an eight-game span after his 21st bomb of the season tonight. Duda was middling around this summer until coming on strong this past week. In his last eight games he has nine homers, 11 hits and a ridiculous 1.393 slugging percentage. This is obviously something Duda won’t be able to keep up, but until he drops off keep him in your lineup. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
