Derek Norris went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and a run scored during the A's 10-5 win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Although Norris is now hitting .391 in the month of June, Sunday's three RBI bring his total up to just four in the month. Despite his recent drop off in power production, Norris is still off to a great start sitting on a .305 average with seven home runs and 29 RBI making him worthy of fantasy consideration in all by the shallowest of fantasy leagues.

Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
