Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored against the Rockies on Friday.
The Brewers shortstop doubled his home run total on Friday night, hitting his first home run since going yard back on May 5. He is now sporting a .250 average with four home runs, 22 RBI and 13 stolen bases which is respectable for a player at the shortstop position. He has now hit just five home runs since last season's All-Star break after belting 11 home runs prior, so clearly his power upside from 2013 is not something fantasy owners should expect moving forward, but the speed is for real.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
