Fantasy Player Updates & News

The Knicks’ chances of keeping Carmelo Anthony could increase if the Bulls land Orlando’s Arron Afflalo in a trade.

Sure, the chances increase, but with there still being a number of other teams interested in Anthony, the increase really isn't all that substantial. The Knicks are not believed to be the favorites to land him.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Russell Martin went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs and one RBI in the Blue Jays 5-1 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Martin continues to rake, having hit .455 with six runs, three home runs and five RBI over the past seven days. Overall this season hes hitting .286 with 20 runs, seven home runs, 18 RBI and two stolen bases which ranks him among the top catchers in baseball this season. There was plenty of promise for Martin heading into the season given his new home ballpark, the lineup surrounding him and the hitter friendly A.L. East which should all afford Martin the potential for a career year with good health. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Mark Buehrle allowed one earned run on six hits while walking one and striking out three over five innings in the Blue Jays 5-1 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Buehrle improved his record to 4-2 on the season but his ERA sits at a miserable 6.00 to go with an even worse 1.85 WHIP. The soft tossing lefty had allowed 13 runs over his previous 10 innings but was able to stifle the aging Yankees lineup. His next start will come on the road against a Cleveland team that is hitting just .236 against southpaws this season with a lowly .690 OPS. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Melky Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a home run and four RBI on Wednesday night vs Detroit.

It’s good to see Melky finally get on the board this season, as his power drought rarely lasts this far into the second month of the season. At this point in the veteran’s career, it is fair to assume what we are going to get out of him in terms of offensive production. Even with the rather slow start, I would bank on numbers in the ball park of a .300 average, 15 home runs, and 65 RBI when the season is all said and done. Hang onto the player unless he gets suspended for PED’s again.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Conor Gillaspie went 1-for-3 with a home run on Wednesday night vs Detroit.

Gillaspie hit his first round tripper of the season on Wednesday night, and it tough to tell what to make of it. I wouldn’t bank on a sudden power surge from the third baseman, so stay away from Gillaspie unless he finds a way to raise his average and start driving in more runs.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI on Wednesday night vs the White Sox.

V-Mart finally registered his first home run of the season on Wednesday night, as it is becoming abundantly clear that he will likely fall well short of his 2014 total of 32 jacks. Besides for the power outage so far this season, Martinez has looked like an inferior hitter than ever before. His average sits at a mere .217, while his on base and slugging are .320 and .265 respectively. Currently, Martinez appears to be a far cry from last year’s player who was an All-Star and legitimate MVP candidate. Expect the veteran to get back on track quickly.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

David Robertson recorded his fifth save of the season on Wednesday night vs Detroit.

Houdini always makes it entertaining, as Robertson allowed two baserunners before maneuvering out of the ninth for his fifth save of the season. Impressively enough, his ERA still sits at a perfect 0.00, so once Chicago rights the ship and starts winning some ball games, expect Robertson to finish as one of the better closers in baseball.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Chris Sale gave up five runs, on seven hits, and five walks, while striking out six, across 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday night in no decision.

Sale got knocked around pretty good on Wednesday night, but luckily his offense picked him up with some clutch, timely hitting to help him avoid registering his second loss of the season. It is rather shocking to see how far Sale has fallen from grace, as typically, the slingshot hurling lefty has been a Cy Young contender year in and year out. His 5.93 ERA is jarring, but considering Sale’s immense talent, expect him to be pitching in the low 3’s once the season is all said and done.  Analysis: Dom Murtha
