Mike Trout went 2-for-6 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored during the Angels' 7-4 loss to the Royals.
Well, well, well...look who getting back into the swing of things, literally. Trout homered for the second-straight game and has now hit safely in each of his last five games, batting .400 (8-for-20) with the two long balls, five RBI and four runs scored over that span. Even better is that he's also only struck out twice over his last four games. There are those who have been just dying to trash Trout and the slump he's now breaking out of was the perfect opportunity to run him down. Too bad it's over though. Was he struggling? Yes. Was he putting himself on-pace for far too many strikeouts? Yes. But he's back in his groove and it looks like he is through the woods with the first real slump of his career. Move ahead with Trout with confidence.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Ricky Rubio (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game.
Rubio has played in just one game since March 13 and is likely to miss Wednesday's contest. His absence is crushing fantasy owners that were counting on him down the stretch for high assists totals. It's probable that Rubio will return at some point this year, though it is anyone's guess as to when. Analysis: David Kerr
Kevin Martin (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game.
What started out as a day of rest for Martin last Monday has turned into five missed games. While he certainly can contribute for fantasy owners on most nights, we are at the point in the season, where we can play the waiting game. If there is a similar healthy option on your wire, it's probably a wise move to make the switch. Analysis: David Kerr
