Kris Bryant homered twice in four at-bats for Triple-A Iowa Sunday, and followed that up by going 1-for-2 with a solo-home run and two walks in Monday's afternoon game.
Bryant made his Triple-A PCL debut last Thursday and, already five games into his Triple-A career the Cubs top third base prospect already has four home runs. This should come as no surprise as Bryant still leads the Southern League (Double-A) in home runs even though he has not played there in almost a week. Not to mention he also won that leagues All-Star Home Run Derby before getting his call-up to the Iowa Cubs where, regardless of how well he hits, will likely remain there for the duration of the season as the team has no reason to rush him. He could force his way up with a strong showing, but it looks like he's a September call-up at best now.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Dwyane Wade (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game.
Wade didn't play on Wednesday due to a sore knee, so of course he is questionable for Friday. If he isn't in the starting lineup, Mario Chalmers will once again get the start and see a bump in value. Wade has been relatively healthy this season and has produced in a big way in the process. He's averaging 21.6 points and 5.2 assists per game. Analysis: David Kerr
Ross Detwiler has made the Rangers starting rotation.
There are far worse pitchers with starting jobs in baseball, so Detwiler is deserving of this chance. He's bounced back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen while pitching for the Nationals, but should settle in as a member of the Rangers' rotation. He has solid value in AL-Only leagues. Analysis: David Kerr
